I finally bit the bullet and pulled the trigger on my first real FPV goggles. I’m used to the wide field of view of my OTG receiver with Android phone mounted on a VR headset so I wanted to have the widest FOV possible. The widest would have been the Dominator HD2 at 50 degrees but I’m actually fine down to the 42 degrees of the Dominator HD3. So when I spotted a well-cared for Dominator HD at 45 degrees, I grabbed it.

Silverware is acro firmware for toy quads such as the Eachine H8 mini, BWhoop B03, BWhoop B03 Pro, Eachine E011, and Eachine E011C (note that this is a BWhoop as far as Silverware is concerned). It allows you to adjust your PIDs and fly acro mode just like with Cleanflight and Betaflight.
The Eachine E011 transmitter takes in 3 AAA batteries. But alkaline batteries almost always suck and Eneloops are rather expensive. And they often tend to inexplicably disappear. Besides, I have a lot of LiPo batteries that I use on quadcopters so it makes sense to make use of them in other battery-operated equipment where possible. This mod is simple and easy and should be applicable to most transmitters similar to the Eachine E011’s. Plus you should still be able to use AAA batteries.
Parts and Equipment
For this mod, you need the following:
- Molex battery male connector
- LiPo battery with Molex battery female connector
- Soldering iron
- Soldering wire
- Wire snips
- Philips screwdriver
