T3h HyperLIT Floss 4"

T3h HyperLIT Floss. This is my first 4" build and it's a blast. I've been eyeing the frame and build for a while and was inspired to build one after being beaten by one at a MultiGP Race. I named it "T3h HyperLIT" simply because the Taranis is one character short to accept "T3h Hyperlite" as a model name, and I thought it sounded good.

The build is full featured with a current senor, OSD, Smartport Telemetry, and Unify Smartaudio. The omnibus F4 Pro doesn't have solder points for the secondary UARTs and they instead break-out to a micro connector on the FC. Due to this I soldered my smartport and smartaudio to the back of that connector port. All of the electronics have also been silicone conformal coated for waterproofing.

It flies great on 4s with the KK 4045 Bi-Blades, I was able to qualify in the #1 spot for a finals(crashed out in finals) at a recent MultiGP Cincinnati Quad Racers event with this setup(DVR below). Currently the build weighs in at 190g without a battery and 295g with a 850mah 75c Tattu. It seems a bit heavy for this style build, I could certainly shave some weight with wire lengths and maybe a micro swift camera.

What's the dry weight on this little guy without battery?

Great build! Did you try other props like DAL or only the kk4045? Waiting to see the dvr :)

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. 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 include a keep reading..
