205-210g dry. Yup. I've literally never seen a quadcopter move from A to B as quickly as this. Its slows down very quickly when you let off the throttle and speeds up almost too quickly when you put your foot down! Honestly, I had just seen f40 pros in action as well as the rs2306 white tops and they may have had a higher top speed but acceleration- wise, this seemed better hands down. The frame was diy-ed and was actually more durable than I expected it to be (frame weighs about 35g) and it only really broke because I was flying at the UKDS track in nottingham which consists of metal gates, roof and concrete floor and it was a full speed crash into said metal gate.(continued flying with a 15g penalty of a fibreglass reinforcement and electrical tape) Despite the ludicrous speed, it was really smooth, controllable and tracked straight and true, which has made me really impressed with the air 40 2450kv motors and for the price, smoothness and durability (so far).

Love the diy!! How did u mount the motors to the arms?

Thanks! 2 holes in each arm with 2 screws through them to the motors with a soft mount squished to form a flat platform for the motor base. I drilled the holes way wider than usual in order to epoxy-fy the drilled hole edges to reinforce it and filled the weakened carbon area with more epoxy. the point of breakage when one happened was at the middle of the arm, so the efforts were kinda successful

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..
