Tried to spend dollars on an Atom v3 pro kit but nope, they apparently all got sent back to RotorX due to an issue when running 4s. Built this instead for even more dollars.

FPV Transmitter, PDB, and OSD are all part of the TBS Powercube Elite Bundle listed under FC.

Wanted to use a RunCam Eagle that I already had but the lens stuck out the front of the mount, even after modifying the rubber camera mounts. Popped on Amazon and saw that I could get a Foxeer Monster same day delivered. Done.

Spares are in Misc. I'll probably pick up another motor and esc ASAP just in case.

Yes, my soldering sucks.
Yes, my props aren't tightened down in that picture.
Yes, I wish I bought the frame with the orange anodizing.

TODO:
Pass HAM license test to be legal with FPV. Boom. Passed both Tech and General.
Figure out where to mount the battery connector to keep it safe.
Get some self fusing tape to lock the ESCs down.
Crash it a bunch.

How did you end up mOunting the Foxeer Monster v2? i heard it was too wide.

I trimmed the rubber mount with a hobby knife. It's a snug fit. Figured I could just 3d print a replacement mount if it didn't work out.

The EV100 Micro AV Recorder is a DVR for the Eachine EV100 headset. Eachine should have built this into the headset, but here we are. It's about the size of a matchbook and works quite well despite a short learning curve. It's powered by the same battery included with the EV100 and uses the white balance lead. Other than that you can use either of the included 2.5mm to 3.5mm cables to plug it into the video input/output port of the EV100. You can either strap it beside the battery in the headstrap or use the included double sided tape to mount it to the top of the goggles. Vs the Eachine ProDVR This is obviously a repurposed Eachine ProDVR, but it does simplify the design. The ProDVR has different pins for each input and output. In fact the entire side of the unit is dedicated to various keep reading..

Currently on sale for $97, 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 include a keep reading..
