Inspired by our man Stew, the storm hawk. 350g without the battery, a little heavy but flies amazing. The torque of the 2207 2300kv is a great match for RK5051 props. The split level makes for an unusually quiet 5 inch racer. Addressable led strips in the back.

Any particular reason you went with 2300kv instead of 2550kv? I'm trying to decide which to choose.

The 2300kv are efficient.

Thank you! I decided to go for the 2550kvs because I read the actual kv is a bit lower.

Nice! Why not go with the Moka Simplex?

I would have if I had known about it at the time.

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..
