X5C What You Did There

This originally started with just the brushed board to get an acro x5c. Eventually added fpv (with OSD!). Later, when getting motors for my smaller brushed bills, I decided to cram 8520 53500 racer star motors in it. Had to use a Dremel to bore out the original 7mm motor holes. Removed the landing gear, clipped the brackets under the motor mounts, removed LEDs and the battery door for weight savings. Also, like my other brushed build, the higher c batteries helped a lot. It's interesting to fly, but the geared drives give it a real floaty feel, no matter how I try to tune my rates and pids. Don't know if I'd call it a success, but thought I'd share anyways.

I have a dvr on the way, but no video. Need to try and tune it some more. Too many toys!

this is pretty much the raceflight phantom equivalent to a tiny whoop

I thought it would work out so much better than it did. It works, it's just not near as fun as I had hoped. I've thought about 2s, but the only 2s motors I can find are less than half the kv, do I don't know if it would do any good, especially with the heavier battery too

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 keep reading..
