Now the Proto X comes with a full-featured transmitter, and uses the SLT protocol so that you can bind it to a Tactic radio, or other hobby-grade brand radios by using the AnyLink adapter.

Tried my hand at it for the first time this past weekend.

I didn't get a video but it was so much fun. And really really hard too. I never realized how difficult it was to cut a silly ribbon! I have a new found respect for that type of flying.

You play the game you pay the price. The Bloody Wonder did well in regular flying but a few dumb thumbs later and bit of cockiness ends up being a walk of shame. However,
a balsa power pod covered with two layers of ultra thin fiberglass makes for a very very tough pod. This one nosed in from 50 feet and there is not a scratch on the pod! It's
ready to go into the next frame.

At least now I get to build another plane!!

First time cutting tapers, was interesting for sure. Now that i've got the templates and the know how I'll probably cut a couple more. This first one was for a buddy, he's gonna finish it and put some FPV on it.

Blog-Update!

4/22/15

Hi guys and gals. I've been having fun chatting on RCG with members. Thanks for reaching out to me. I'm still flying my RcTimer Spider quad/ Pixhawk setup. I haven't mastered my brushless gimbal setup to my liking. I will keep working on that. Currently I fly with 3s 4500 packs and I get up to 10 minutes flight with my APC 10 in props with 2812 980kv rctimers. I want to get a few more minutes if possible so i'm considering lower kv motors and 4s packs.

Thankfully there is a ton of information available on the groups. Thanks for everything.

Scott


Hello fellow RCG members,

I wanted use this space to tell everyone a little about me. I became a RCG member a few years ago and since then I have used the groups to learn a lot about multicopters, fpv, and lipo batteries.

Years ago I raced 1/10 scale buggy and 1/8 scale nitro buggies on dirt tracks in metro Michigan area. Continuing in the hobby, I moved in to flight. First I got a Zagi flying wing, and then ended up getting a Blade Cp Heli. Eventually I got a HDX 450 electric heli and an Align Trex 250 as my need for flying progressed.

As of late I have been pretty involved with multicopters, having a 650 quad, Dji style 450, Reptile 500, and now a TBS Discovery. I have been enjoying flying LOS and FPV with my quads. I have used original KK FC as well as Multiwii, APM 2.5, and Pixhawk.

I have built (2) 3d printers and currently Iím using a mendelmax 1.5 that I sourced...Continue Reading

The Blade Nano QX is an excellent value for anyone starting off flying quadcopters. Its SAFE technology makes it easy to fly, but the quad has a ton of power and is super agile so you won't get bored of it even after you've mastered the basics! Highly recommended for any new flyer - read the full Blade Nano QX review with pictures here: http://quadcopterhq.com/blade-nano-qx-review/.

Blade Nano QX Review

The Blade Nano QX is an excellent entry-level small/mid-size quadcopter. It is easy to learn to fly on, but it is powerful enough to ensure that you really won’t get bored with it anytime soon – it can be tough to master it! Read on for our full Blade Nano QX review and see how it stacks up against other quadcopters like the Syma X1 or the Parrot AR.Drone!

Packaging

The Blade Nano QX comes in a small cardboard box, with everything that you need to start flying. It includes:

Blade Nano QX quadcopter
One 3.7V 150mAh 25C Li-Po battery
4-channel DSMX transmitter with batteries
Compact USB Li-Po battery charger
Yellow and green accessory canopies
Extra set of colored propellers

Blade Nano QX Design

The Blade Nano QX is a small to mid-size quadcopter, measuring about 5 inches wide by 1.5 inches tall. If you are familiar with the Hubsan X4, it is slightly larger than that (but not by much). The Nano QX quadcopter weighs about 16.5 grams, which is essentially half of the weight of the regular Hubsan X4 or the X4 video version. Since there isn&#...Continue Reading

Hi guys,

Here is a new F450 Quad FPV version with APM2.6 auto-pilot for drone hobbyist.

This combo equipped with latest 2212 900KV FPV BL motor,makes flight with little vibration ,improving the battery efficiency by over 20%,.

The current version comes with all components you need to build your quad:
ENIG PCB frame,30A High-speed controller,2212 900KV FPV motor,Apm2.6 auto-pilot with Ublox 6M GPS module(with antenna and compass),1045CF propeller,or you can also use 9443 Self-tightening pros for optional,tall landing gear,soldering accessories.

Currently, we found most pilots install their gimbals directly to the bottom of this F450 bottom plate which will have some vibration during flight,to solve this ,now you can hang directly your gimbal to the tall landing gear with the mounting hooks we provided,no need to spend lots of efforts to get it under the bottom board.

Please note when you build this quad,it's recommend to learn some basic knowledge of configuration about APM2.6 auto-pilot.

Finally had a break in the wind after last weekend's blustery conditions.

I did a few hand tosses and added in a BUNCH of down elevator.

Anyway, this plane flew great and it will slow down in a tight circle, and pick up a lot of speed with a few clicks of down. It got a little breezy as the afternoon progressed and it penetrates into the winds very well.

I did wind up adding a little nose weight, after doing the dive test.

Landings were a piece of cake and I didn't try to stall it, but if you slow down too much in a turn it just noses down until there's enough airspeed to correct it glide path.

It's a great little sailplane.
