I was looking to build a main freestyle rig. More premium parts than the first. I achieved it! I have had this for a couple of weeks putting it though its paces. I wanted something that was clean to build and all that acro power I wanted with a top mounted battery. The motors I went with because they were used by some pilots i look up to. Plus they were a killer price! Also smooth video is definitely important to me and as I can say now these motors are butter smooth for sure. The new BetaFlight F3 board I wanted to try out as I love all the features it offers. I also favor how active the developers are at improving it. Everything else on the kwad is top notch as well. Love the way this thing flies! Super locked in and very centered. Also incredibly durable at a weight that isn't terrible as its pretty close to all the other 220+ frames with individual replaceable arms. Please let me know what you think or if you think I could improve it in some way. This is my second build.

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..
