ImpulseRC really did something amazing here. Building this quad was so nice. All the custom components work together so perfectly and the pre chamfered carbon is a bonus. I understand it's not for everyone since you can only choose what motors and esc ( which due to the farings short is limited by size ) you want, but it is so well thought out I didn't mind.
Flight performance is typical for a true x and very easy to tune thanks to a clever way the FC is isolated from the standoffs.
Although beta flight 3.1 now also has this feature it is really nice to be able to control your VTX and your flight controller through the OSD.
Just like with the Alien ImpulseRC has another winner

looks good, very clean! I was thinking about getting the helix as my next build, but I was worried about the antenna braking off the VTX. Does that seem like it would be a problem in your opinion?

The VTX that are shipping now have epoxy on the connector to reinforce. With that said I have an original that's not reinforced, only with zip ties, and have had no issues with many crashes.

Buy it for $99 with coupon EV100 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..
