Okra Gumbo

This was a build for a friend on the internets. The name fits with the colors and a favorite dish from my home town of New Orleans (some pictures of my wife cooking one included).

I did all the extras on this one for him, it is 95% done. The main thing left is to swap the receiver for his brand. I did conformal coating on the electronics, sanded and sealed the frame, fully sleeved everything, etc, etc and then undid one of those etc and did it again. This took a lot of mock-ups to jam all this stuff in there. But I am pretty happy with the outcome. Weighs in at 158g. So not my lightest 3" build but it has things like an SMA connector, a Tramp HV, and plenty of 4100kv power :D

The Tomoquads XBL2 seems like a pretty nice frame. It was a little tight with the parts I chose but workable. I am a little sad to see it go but it was a fun build.

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..
