This is my first real quadrocopter with 4S.
Build it in 5 hours with no problems, now off to the tuning.
I already ordered a TBS Unify Pro Race, because the Eachine broke. Fortunately I had another one to hand. Additionally I need to add a capacitor for the VTX.
Will update my progress on tuning the PIDs.

--- Update 1 ---
TBS Unify Pro Race installed, flawless transmittion. Currently I get around 4.30 flight time with the Multistar LiPos with moderat flying. I might try some 5040 props soon.
For the tuning part I'm add it. Right now it's totaly flyable total response, but it definitely needs some tweaking in the turns. I ordered a runcam 3, so there might be some on-flight footage soon. Next step is to upgrade my cam to an arrow 3 or something.

--- Update 2 ---
I switched the receiver to a SPM4649T for telemetry and RSSI warning. I printed a new hood with rocket boostes on it. Yeeahi and soon my pagoda antenna parts will arrive.

All happy flying! :)

Interesting RX antenna placement. I normally run them from behind the front arms, so this is the first time I've seen them going forward from the rear arms.

The receiver fitted best in the back of the quad. But the antennas were too short to make them point backwards. Right now it works, I've got 4 spare antennas, when one might break, but let's see.

Save 15% with coupon PaypalBG15% on the EV100 at Banggood The much anticipated Eachine EV100 headset has finally arrived! Opinions have been quite polarized and unless you've never flown FPV before you're likely to find fault in the field of view (FOV). I've tried a number of headsets and have to admit that I've been spoiled by the FatShark HD2 and HD3 goggles. That being said this is nowhere near that price bracket, so I'd like to compare the EV100 to a few headsets around the same price. Keep in mind that these cost $100 when they were released, so the current $159 price is likely to come down. EV100 vs the Competition I've been a long supporter of the Eachine EV800. It's a great headset for the price (~$55). Feature for feature it's the most comparable headset to the EV100. Both keep reading..
