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:

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.

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..
