fq777-124 nano drone

Features/ my opinion:

This is a nano quadcopter that stores inside the transmitter
( controller ). It cab also be charged by the transmitter. One
Thing I really liked was the 8 spare props ! Instead of only 4
It features headless mode and one key return. The controller
Is quite especial as it can carry the drone, spare parts, recharge
The drone and it can also be put inside your pocket therefore
You can enjoy flying this nano drone anywhere. The controller
Is desined with MODE 1/MODE 2 one key switch, which means
Anyone can pilot this nano drone. Rotor protectors are also
Included as well as landing gears, which makes it a double
Protection and this avoids injury ( in case it hits someone )
Incase u don't want to waste the battery power from your
AAA batteries inside ur transmitter u can also charge this drone
With a USB cable. Its got a great look battery with a built in
Charge and discharge protection. And it also has powerful
Motors which allow for great flips. the beCharger of it is that it
only costs 20$ below. this has gotta be the best bang for your
buck right here.

Here's a fun video filmed by my daughter Evelyn of the FlightlineRC 1200mm F8F-1 Bearcat flying in the Mojave Desert. We wanted to try something a little different and it was fun. The 6 minute flight was flown with an Admiral 4S 2500 pack, 51% power left in the pack.

This plane flies like a Parkzone T-28 with flaps and retracts but on 4S power....sweet flyin Cat!

Thanks Eve for the Wild, Wild West flight and video work.

Soo.. just as soon as the stock rolled in, I ordered me one

Link to this car: JLB Racing - Cheetah
To be completely honnest I had not heard of the 'JLB Racing' brand before..

So.. a 1/10th scale monster truck, eventhough it is a bit big for a 1-to-ten..

i have a show & tell shot by now, but offcourse I'll do more video's about the car

This started innocently enough. I put a nice bead of thick electrical tape along the inside edge of the EOS lid to help it grip the frame better, as I've been losing it in impacts recently. After I did that, I decided to use one of the left-over EOX stickers to give the front/center a bit more visual distinction to help with LOS flying.

I put the EOS away, and shortly thereafter, modding ADHD kicked in and I took it out of the box and put googly eyes on it. I think I added about 50Hp at least, I'm not sure yet.

The eyebrows have no reason to exist other than that they're covering up wrinkles in the sticker that won't come out.

On a more serious note, I'm trying to track down suitable replacements for the RC Logger propellers. 65mm with a roughly 11mm wide prop is proving difficult to find. The Heli-Max 1SQ V-Cam props are the right shape, but they're only 55mm.

Aerial photography is a relatively new process in which the photographer always faced a paradox of being caught spending a great deal of money on their aircraft or having a compromise on the type of camera that they want on their drone. Fortunately, manufacturers have recognized this point and offers an option on cheaper, more efficient drone while providing some very strong cameras on these types of aircraft. On some of these newer drones have a powerful 4 K and some of the more expensive cameras actually offer zoom, a capability that was not available before hand. Below is a list of the best drones with cameras for first-person view and aerial photography.

Number 1 on the list is DJI's Phantom 4 which is agile and can fly in some pretty amazing places including indoors. The camera is 4 K and works in conjunction with multiple flight modes-not to shabby of engineering to say the least!!!

Number 5 is the Phantom Vision Plus-an aircraft that DJI no longer in product which is a testimony to the types of cameras that was installed on these units.

What needs to be consider is not about the amount of money spent but what you do with the camera. Don't just focus on the technology but what you can do with the aircraft. Remember, this is an industry that will grow. Therefore, consider outside the box and what your needs may very well be. Personally for me, it's more about being a master over technology rather then letting the technology master you.

Rogers RMC2 test run on glow plug (0 min 22 sec)


The 1940s Rogers RMC2 all aluminum " slag " engine was a very popular engine of which most would run, but wore out quickly due to the all aluminum construction. The spark ignition timer prevented many from running at all until the glow plug was introduced. SIG 5% nitro 20% castor oil glow fuel and a Fox glow plug were used. The next test will attempt a run on spark ignition....

best regards,

jeff

Tried it out on the runway !

EDF seems to have enough power to pull her out of the grassfield. Once started I needed to reduced the throttle to avoid her taking off !

Eachine E5C RTF Quadcopter from Banggood.com (2 min 59 sec)


Back at the dawn of nano and micro quads, it was possible to pick up a halfway decent version for, oh, about a hundred bucks.

I know. That’s what I paid for mine and I still have it.

Like any other consumer (or hobby) item, R&D coupled with improved production methods send prices plummeting. Economics 101, as it were.

Today, a mere thirty dollars with free shipping nets a vastly improved mini quad. Or, if you prefer, $29.99.

That model is the camera equipped Eachine E5C from my friends at Banggood.com. Eachine dabbles in some higher end hobby quads, but their bread and butter seems to be little entry level machines like this one.

The E5C comes with the usual accessories such as propeller guards, two spare props, a small screwdriver, a USB charging cord and the model itself which only needs the installation of the camera and the landing skids for completion. Buyers need to ante up for a standard micro SD card and reader along with four AA-cell alkaline batteries to power the transmitter.

Unwrapping the plastic and foam used to ship the model revealed an attractive display box. Inside, the E5C came with propellers installed and with the 500mAh flight battery waiting inside the model itself.

An unexpected surprise came in the form of a neat little pair of sunglasses packed inside the box! I’ve tried doing some flying with them and I have to say that they work quite well.

I've just received a couple FS-i6 radios and straight out of the box, they're awesome! Amazing value for a beginner radio.

Update:

Wiki page, plz help if you can: https://github.com/opentx/opentx/wik...i6-Development

Test project, to test drivers / features: https://github.com/nathantsoi/fs-i6-test (currently just blinks the backlight)

Pin mappings: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...HMk/edit#gid=0 just request access if you want to edit and I will add you

Radio link works great, there is diversity TX and RX, they're cheap and powerful and the UI is intuitive. Then I thought to myself: self, why not put the DIY 4-in-1 multiprotocol module into the radio. We'll much trial and all error later. It doesn't work. Through that process though, I've decided the best thing to do for this excellent hardware, is build new firmware!

As folks already probably know, there is 8channel and 10channel firmware out there for these. But it's all based on the shipped binaries (I don't think we have any source for this, right?) and to get the DIY 4-in-1 radio module working with minimal latency, it's best to skip ppm entirely.

This post is going to be all about reversing the hardware so we can port it to OpenTX. OpenTX because it has built in support for the 4-in-1 module. I've created a fork with the libs here: https://github.com/nathantsoi/opentx/tree/target/fs-i6

and a chat room here:

https://gitter.im/nathantsoi/opentx

Any help would be much appreciated.

The first steps are:

I was so excited about the brass prop arriving for the Simply Stellar foam board racing boat today! I installed the prop, loaded up the car and headed to the lake. I had tested all the functions at home and found everything working properly.
I get to the lake and do a pre-launch check before taking her to the water. (As usual) When I turned on the radio the rudder turns hard to one side and the throttle refused to work. Thinking I may have attached a depleted battery pack, I changed out the battery. Turned on the system again the same thing happens. OK....so now I am thinking the antenna for the receiver must be buried too deep in the hull. I pull the antenna wire out and lay it across the table. Turn it on again and things are a little better. I now get throttle control ( at half speed ), and the rudder has somewhat straightened. A little more tinkering and I get a "somewhat" normal response. I decide it is good enough to test the new prop.

I put her in the lake and she starts going in reverse (slowly). No problem...a little trim adjustment should fix that. I start to go and notice that the throttle response is very sluggish and slow. The minute I return the throttle back to off, we get reverse again.

I felt very uneasy about doing any further testing in fear of losing control. I bring her back to shore and pack-up to go home.
As I am pondering what could have happened to change things so radically from the test at home, it occurred to me...Continue Reading
