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.

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 customizable compartments that can store a handful of quads, a transmitter or two, a couple sets of goggles, batteries, tools, props and a laptop. If you're feeling lazy you can even pack a couple quads without removing the props. You'll never find yourself saying, "I wish my bag was bigger." Build Quality This is a nice bag. 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..
