This drone is light weight - under 350 grams, EMAX ESCs will give a lot of power to motors. Chosen new monstrous trust motors for this build - Hobbywing XRotor 2405 2850kv (excellent trust of 1580g on 12 volts with 5040x3 props) and new EMAX T5050 props.
BF 3.1.7 & BlHeli_s 16.65. Will see if Tattu R-Line 1550mah 4s 95c will handle such power...

Doesn't like how F4 FLAME fc works, decided to install new one - Lumenier F4 AIO.

Hi,
I'm building the same frame but with the flame f4
I wanted to know if you found a way attaching the xt60 to the frame, so if the battery gets ejected it won't rip off the pads?

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.

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..
