If you get one of these, pay attention, as Eachine have fitted a socket that many leads and batteries can access, but its REVERSE POLARITY.

Been using one along with other models and makes for some time now.

Apart from the idiotic reversed polarity of a common plug/socket asking for trouble, this model has other issues. It's heavy, even de-cased, and while the metal case makes the main PCB robust, it does nothing to assist on weight and does not protect the aerial connection, which has a rigid co-ax putting load on the PCB.

I bought two at once on special offer pre-release, and de-cased they are not bad, but I would not buy any more as better exist.
