Winter is coming.

It gets cold here, the kind of cold where it's not fun to go outside and try and fly quads. So we tend to find indoor places to fly like gyms or even the office with Tiny Whoops. I wanted a micro brushless to tear around a gym with and Larry at Falcon Multirotors had just the frame to get started. This is a Bullshark frame that may be in production soon. Supports full size cameras (we all know those tiny little CMOS cameras are kind of crap....), a 20x20 stack, and up to 3" props. So it's a micro using real parts, whoo!

Even though this build is tiny, it was actually one of the easiest, quickest builds I've done to date. The HGLRC 20x20 stack is super easy to build with. The 4in1 ESC pins to the FC and then the FC has a great layout with pads needed for both Spektrum Satellite RX and pads for the FPV system to route through the FC for BFOSD. Solder your motor wires to the ESC, stick the FC on, then run a few more wires for receiver and vtx/cam and you're done! There is just enough room with 20mm standoffs to fit the entire HGLRC stack too.

UPDATE: like my linear antenna mount? Download it here and print it yourself: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2594435

This thing flies great! Tuning needs a bit of work yet though. BF 3.2 defaults aren’t quite setup for micros. I’d suggest having P and D to start with and then work up from there.

Once I got the time better, it flies like a normal quad. None of that brushed “sag” you get where you can’t pull out of dives or turns. And speed you ask?? PLENTY. Seriously, lot of fun to fly and hit small gaps.

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..
