I wanted to build something specifically for races but still keep the costs low - this is the result I came up with.

If somebody want's to get his quad build by me, please just let me know

Love the clean build! Did you have to modify anything to make the pod fit? The one I received had the front holes 33mm vs the 30.5 spacing on the frame. Thx for sharing your work.

That is a nice build! Love how you have the esc wires arraiged. I'm actually working on a similar build today lol.

I just noticed that the edges of the frame are rounded off, how did you do that?

Yup, I always round of the edges of my frames. It prevents them from delamination when crashing into concrete and in general looks a lot nicer.

I would suggest NOT to ziptie the elco to the battery's connector as you may damage it. The build is super elegant though, well done.

Actually, I've relocated the capacitor to the front of the flight controller. Now it sits vertically between the FC and FPV Cam.
Had to do it because I couldn't fit the Race Pod otherwise.

What size (diameter) are those black wire covers? I got some for my build but really struggled to get them on as I think they may have been too small!

Very slick build btw - love it!

I've got these cable sleevings from my local arts and craft store. They are 3 to 7mm sleevings.
It's a bit tricky to install them, basically, you have to compress them a bit and "snake" them over the cable.
This video explains it pretty good:

Oh man I wish I had seen that video a few weeks ago! Thanks heaps dude

Is that a legit way to mount the motor wires? If so, I'm gonna do that!

faken   Jun 20, 2017 

Works just fine!
Actually, hat to mount them like this because the pod is super tight around the pads of the 4in1 ESC. So there was no way of mounting the wires outside. And with the sleeving, you don't have to worry about prop strikes.

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..
