What kind of flight times do you get with this bad boy? Thinking about a 4" build and can't decide between 650 and 850 mah.

Rickybobby   Jul 28, 2017 

I would go with the 850 mah. The 650mah sags a lot with 1407s. I've actually been running a 1000mah pack and have been getting anywhere from 4-6 minutes but that all depends on flight style.

The color coordination between the props and canopy is great! How hot do your motors come down with those props?

Rickybobby   Jul 15, 2017 

Thanks! The motors seemed to handle these props no problem. I haven't pushed hard on a really hot day to stress test it yet though. I'll be interested to see how they do with the extra weight of a 1050mah battery.

Great! Got any footage?

Rickybobby   Jul 15, 2017 

No :( I'll hit you up when I get some though. I haven't bought a sd card for my fatshark yet haha.

Nice! I wish you had a scale as well. I'm about to rebuild mine and go back to the stock canopy with the Micro Swift.

You guy's keep an eye out on those XJB's. I just had the negative pad lift off while unplugging the battery on my Underpup. If you have a way to zip-tie the leads down, I would do it.

I was trying to think of a way to run it out the back for that reason, but haven't decided how. Good looks!

are 1407 motors the largest you can fit on this frame?

Rickybobby   Jul 14, 2017 

The largest motor this frame fits is ones with 12x12mm mounting holes. I'm not sure if 1407 is the largest in that class.

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..
