I must have built 35 or more of these over the years and it still is an amazing frame to fly. I own several builds still and I use 900 MHz, 2.4GHz or 1.3GHz for video depending on the situation and UHF for radio control for miles of flying only limited to my batteries (which can be up to two 4.500mah packs in parallel). I have several different antenna setups for best reception and portability ranging all frequencies from 900MHz to 1.3GHz for video and 72MHz up to 5.8GHz for radio control.

How long are your flights?

I can get 30 minutes or more on parallel packs and 10" props.

Thanks for the update! When I first started, I had the Blade Chroma 4K, than I saw an episode of Drone Racing League (DRL) on ESPN and slowly moved away from photo/video rigs and into racing. After looking at your build, it makes me want to go back. Do you have any flight footage to share?

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..
