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?

Moxl   Jun 10, 2017 

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 :)

The ThinkTank FPV Airport Helipak is the premier travel bag for FPV enthusiasts. I've taken this bag across the country and around the world, and I really can't imagine a better pack for the job. It's huge. It's the size of a carry-on luggage, and it's designed specifically for FPV. It offers customizable compartments that can store a handful of quads, a transmitter or two, a couple sets of goggles, batteries, tools, props and a laptop. If you're feeling lazy you can even pack a couple quads without removing the props. You'll never find yourself saying, "I wish my bag was bigger." Build Quality This is a nice bag. It offers enough padding to securely carry all your FPV gear. The exterior padding is quite thick and rigid. I feel safe packing my goggles and transmitter without any additional keep reading..

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..
