There was quite a bit of interest in the "Helmets" I designed for the 2016 GT2, and lots of people asking for them for the 2017. The side plates, etc... were a little different between the revisions of the frame, so that only meant one thing... a new build :)

I debated moving the components from my built 2016 GT2 to a GT2017 frame kit. However, I then started debating updating the motors, then I also wanted OSD which would mean replacing the FC, etc... The dollars started adding up and I realized it just made more sense to get the GT2017 PNF. I cringed at the idea of not building my own stuff, but I am definitely happy with it. Its heavy, but holy sh!t is it fast.

I added some Helmet design renders and print sample photos in the photos section.

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..
