My second build (in the 200+-class). After i've built a very low-cost (but fun!) realacc x210 i felt like building something with (even) nicer parts. :) Since I was able to learn quite a bit about the basics during tinkering the realacc, I wanted to try to build it a bit more tidy this time.

nice build, out of interest what does it weigh?

Thanks! 380g without battery. Guess I could have saved a few g here and there, but I did not care too much about it.

Yea, I was just flying in insane wind with my action cam and largest battery and it was still fast though the wind was more of an issue than the weight to be honest

hey man, sick build! are you using the ppm or ibus on that flysky? im having such a hard time trying to connect my quad to sbus ( not really sure whether its the uart that im activating incorrectly on betaflight or the solder point that i connected it too) i have it on ppm as of now but i can tell theres a big difference in the flight characteristic. if you can help me out that would be great!

Thanks, mate! I had problems getting ibus to work on that particular fc, too. The reason was that the port that is labeled as ppm/sbus is harware-inverted which is bad for ibus. Thus, i did not use the pins on the half of the fc where the motor signal wires are located but the uart pins on the other side. This video explains it pretty clearly:


Afterwards you simply have to set uart1 to serial rx in betaflight. Hope that helps :)

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..
