If my color scheme doesn't scream "Witness Me!" I don't know what does.

I've been beating the hell out of this build for months, it was sticky with chewed leaves and sap so I cleaned it and gave it a new look. Actual cost was $150 and it flies freestyle better and more smoothly than any of my other quads.

Removed the motor anodizing, I'm tired of red. The chrome is vinyl for wrapping a car. Normally you wrap metal to look like carbon, I'm doing the opposite

Wow, that price. How did you get that silver effect?

The chrome is using something like this: https://www.amazon.com/Silver-adhesive-release-Air-Free-3MIL-VViViD8/dp/B00L9J5DTE/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1497235283&sr=8-1&keywords=chrome+vinyl+wrap
It's great because it also insulates your electronics from the carbon frame.

I painted the camera case with enamel silver. And used drain cleaner to remove the anodizing from the motors. That last one I encourage caution on, caustic soda is nasty stuff. I also wasn't sure it'd work but I have a lot of these motors ($4 a piece) so it was worth a shot.

As for price I always use a coupon code of some sort from banggood

Well it looks great, nice work! Did you remove the bells from the motors or did you de-anodize the entire thing?

Thanks! I did take off the bells, wasn't sure what would happen to the windings.

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..
