Strawberry Basher

I recently took advantage of the big BG sale and bought enough parts to build a couple of quads. This is my new basher...
I built this one using the F4 Flame and opted not to use a 4-in-1... I think she turned out clean anyway and I'm looking forward to crashing it up this weekend.

Wow! Dude that thing looks amazing! Where did you get that skin? Also did you use shorter standoffs?

UnderDawg   Sep 14, 2017 

Thanks! I bought the Skinz on Amazon. I listed the link above in misc.... Also I did drop the top 5mm .

Looks amazing! I'd have trouble forcing myself to beat this around.
Any reason for original Racerstar 2205 rather than the newer 2205S? Just curious.

I have that problem with all my quads. As for the motors, I got a better than listed price for just the 2205's

Ah, fair enough. Thanks.

Looking good! Red is not a common quad color from what I've seen but you've sure made it look good.
May I know how have you mounted that XT60 on the back?

UnderDawg   Sep 13, 2017 

Thanks!! That's the Plastic Spider TPU mount. I used a m3 loc- nut on the underside of the plate to hold it in place. I bought it here. http://great3d.com/top-mount-xt-60-mount/ other than that it's just 10mm mesh zip- tied to the bottom of the frame. BTW the black and red matches my truck and my Fat Sharks.

Are you going to do a softmount pad to keep the battery off those screw cap things?

UnderDawg   Sep 13, 2017 

Most definitely. I may cut down some landing pads for that job.

Looking good! I've always avoided those red motors because I just don't know how to match them. Seems you had no problem complimenting them.

UnderDawg   Sep 12, 2017 

Thanks!! I bought the vinyl back when I built the Frog Lite, but it just didn't work out on that build.

It's nice to have a beater quad to get risky with.

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..
