I wanted a full featured and heavy duty build and this checks off everything.

The FC has PDB tabs and wouldn't fit underneath the canopy. I ended up "dropping" the esc 4mm below the frame and sandwiching it. Still a very tight build. Hoping the 15A esc will still cool with only 1105 motors attached.

AUW is 110 gram with 3S Iihv battery, 99 gram with some GNB 2S. Not the lightest, but I am using the top frame, canopy , a beeper, buzzer, led, all motor screws, aluminum stack screws and spacers.

Notes:
ESC only has M2 mount holes. The FC has M3 , but comes with soft mounts which shrink the opening to M2.

I could only get ibus to work with UART1 which was underneath the board (I left SP pads soldered together, but not sure if that was needed).

What motors do you think you'll go with? I'm scoping out a build but want real punchy motors.

I just got AirbladeUAV 1104 10,000kv. The build quality is nice, and the magnets are less "notchy" then the 1105B. I weighed the motors at 5 grams each, but they are also rated for 3s.... 3s at 10,000kv...60 grams total without battery...I may only get to fly this thing once.

My other options were the new 1106 motors, but 3s at 10,000kv....

The Emax 1106 4500kv's look pretty good IMO.

Buy it for $99 with coupon EV100 on the 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 keep reading..
