Trashcan / mobula7 kit from xt-xinte

Build log bellow but video here as well.

Bench review and jello fix for Trashcan / mobula7 KIT from xt-xinte. (13 min 9 sec)

Garden acro flight jello fix for Trashcan / mobula7 KIT from xt-xinte. Happymodel eachine (2 min 53 sec)

The kit itself is only an ok deal but with the extras added very cheaply makes for a good deal.
Weight of this is about 32grams so lighter than trashcan and heavier than mobula7.
Lots of kit options from
Have a look at them here.
Send a message to them once you have an account set up with nigelsheffield123 in it and they will credit your account with $5 ( or easier click this coupon ) every little helps and it lets them know I sent you so I might get some items to review.

Simple build really and everything just plug and play if you just pay for the soldering of the camera $5 extra, or just solder it yourself as it's not that hard.
Took about 10 to 20 minutes to put together and a quick setup in betaflight to match my controls and rates.
There was a LOT of jello in the picture and I needed to add some foam bellow and above the camera and also cable tie loose wires to stop the adding to the vibrations but once done I got really good results.

The extra weight of the nicer camera does affect power as does the V3 frame, so my mobula7 is more powerful and flies for longer on same batteries, but the nice picture and more resilient frame is the benefit .... So you choose between performance and quality of picture and power ... I personally never broke the V2 frame of the mobula7 and was happy enough with the picture.
Bellow is what I got in my kit, the gate is nice and is very cheap too if you want more buy the 10 pack deal for $15 plus post.
The fpv watch works great too and I will have that in my pocket for bystanders if needed.
Xt-xinte are a great company to deal with, great service both when things go well and when they don't will sort out the problem quickly if you message them.
Defo check out their shop as they have the best prices around ( cheaper than banggood ) but always work out the postage as that is extra but still usually works out cheaper.

Check out the build pictures bellow and ask any questions and I'll try to answer them.
I'll update as I get more flights in.

A good deal on batteries that fit like the gnb ones with no lead to dangle about. These batteries are a good deal and have the connector without long lead

Flew This and the stock mobula7 back to back just now and difference is night and day with the caddx camera it was clear as a bell whilst mobula7 I was struggling a bit to see where I was going at times.
Mobula7 had lots more power though.
I'm now thinking the V2 frame kit might be better for performance anyway , the V3 looks indestructible though so a great option for the garden, it's still got more than enough power anyway for that...
