Back in Black ( Black Pearl Stretch )

In a pinch I was cruising Amazon looking for a new frame and happened to find the Black Pearl. I thought it was a really nice looking frame that comes with 5.5mm interchangeable arms and a HD camera mount that I opted not to use.

The DYS FC and 30 amp ESC combo allows for a nice tight stack and with a TPU camera mount I was able to drop the top a couple of mm more. I think everything turned out nice and I'm looking forward to trying out the Hobbywing 2205 motors on a stretch X frame.

What parts did you use to mount the camera? Nice build bt the way. Looks very well thought out and executed.

Thanks!! That's the Floss micro cam mount. I have a couple of other TPU mounts in the mail if that one doesn't work out.

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..
