Twins!! Fast as hell. with 5045 dal I can easily get 2:30 of flight at 80% throttle, and land and settle above 3.7v/cell. purpose built to be fast as hell for multigp races.

If you want this pod, you can order it here

Did I mention fast as hell?

Edit: Just finished my own custom POD design for this frame + micro swift 2. I am now more in love with it than I was before. Flies great. Haven't checked new weight yet but I've stopped caring about weight so much (it's efficient enough and fast enough already) and now I'm just focusing on flying this bad boy on the edge. first race will be 9/23/17

Ok you are going to hate me now, but you HAVE to find a way to make the hot lead on your battery connector match your bells (or at least make it black)

Minichado   Sep 27, 2017 

oh yea, I can easily swap the red wire out for black, and get a black xt-60 connector.. stealth as she comes... that would be siiiick!

you inspired me on my latest build, black bat leads and black XT60 :D

Any chance you have plans for the pod? I love this design....

hey! I am currently trying to get it printed and tested in TPU. so far I have only been able to print it in PLA which is not-optimal. when I get the design sorted in TPU I may sell them with a recommended parts list (only fits certain ESC's, runcam micro swift or the foxeer micro). I have also considered designing the same pod but for different, normal sized cameras but I haven't gotten that far yet.

Hey, I added the design to my shapeways shop

Clean build!! Love the pod...

It looks GOOD as hell too! I'm thinking that if you were willing to move your cam foreward about 5mm you could drop it an inch, and prooooobably drop your top plate by 10mm

Minichado   Sep 07, 2017 

oh for sure man. I think I can come up with a small 3D printed POD for this frame and make it a bit more resilient and more compact as well!! build went together cleaner than i could have hoped so there is a ton of room in there I can cut out !!

p.s. you should check back, I finished the pod design :D:D:D

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..
