This was my first mini build from back in the day and now it's time to upgrade the 280mm LOS hex into a sleeper FPV cruiser.

The first thing I did was yank out the old CC3D Mini, PWM setup, but I kept the Spedix PDB and the 12amp ESC's. I then added an F3 board, SBus receiver, RunCam board camera and stackable VTX.. I do not recommend the Panda VTX and will be changing it out for something with better range.

Overall I'm happy with the outcome and glad I was able to save this old bird. I guess I'm just an old sentimental fool at heart.

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 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..
