Always liked the look of this frame and finally decided to treat myself to it. Not sure I want to race it though, not at my skill level anyway! So just going to put some cheap and cheerful motors on for now. I'm trying a 4in1 esc for the first time also mainly to try and keep a clean look. Just got my Runcam Split in the post today too. Looking forward to trying that out, see if the extra latency is noticeable or not.

It's mostly done now. Hover test went ok, just need some good weather for an FPV maiden. The biggest problem I had with this build is that Runcam kindly upgraded the lens to a GoPro style one but that wouldn't fit through the camera hole on this frame. I swapped the lens for a Swift 2.5mm lens but the image is not the best. Waiting for a reply from Runcam to see if the 'short' lens is available separately. It's flashed with Inav and I've ordered a GPS / mag unit. The OSD on the Omnibus F4 worked the first time I tried it but then went dead. Still trying to get to the bottom of that one.

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..
