I had 2 purple and 1 silver 4" Armattan Japaluras and wanted one in a different color so I sent a set of purple braces to "Pig" on RCGroups and had them stripped and then anodized in blue. I removed the motors from one of the purple builds and replaced them with blue RotorGeeks 1407-4000kv motors. I also 3D printed a blue threaded HS1177 camera cases in PLA+ to complete the full blue look. It weighs 184.7 grams without a battery and it's a rocket with the 4000kv motors, 4S 1000mAh 70c graphene pack and the HQ 4X4.3X3 V1S props. The motors barely get warm during a hard, fast flight. With DAL T4045v2 props the motors get very hot in less than a minute so I wouldn't recommend them.

I'm extremely happy with how it turned out.

I've personally seen this quad and the pictures don't do it justice.

Great color coordination! How much did the anodizing cost?

Thank you very much. It was more or less a trade, I 3D printed a few items for him in exchange for the anodizing. I'm sending the purple braces that were on it to him to get anodized orange so I can replace the silver ones on another Japalura.

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..
