Hey everyone!
FPVstyle.com is having their second Flash sale for a Handheld brushless gimbal! Since the first Flash sale was so popular for the ANT ARF Kit for only $249.

This weeks Flash sale is a full Ready to Record set for those wanting to record from the ground or do reviews! This thing works great and is very stable. With a great range of motion, the CUBE 3 axis gimbal provides plenty of smooth motion to stabilize just about anything you can throw at it!

Vendor Description:
Introducing the high end Mini FPV Multi-rotor. This Quad has a cross directional arm
span of 250mm. The propellers and engines have been chosen to allow for superior flight times of up to 15
minutes. Attach a 808 Mobius camera of your choice and you are ready for a superb FPV flight that lets
you film longer, go farther, and free yourself from the constraints of ten minute flight times. The folding
design allows for compact transport without the need for disassembly all the while allowing for a prep time
to flight in just a few seconds.

This is a ARF combo for Ant 250. You just need to open the box and spend little time to assemble them, power up and fly. we have transmitter in the store, Want different motors? Contact us for different quote.)

This is a video of my Weekly series that I am able to start up again with help from a few vendors

Each week I will be covering 2-3 minutes of various things related to rc, from filming to flying, Ill try to cover all those odd and often asked questions.

Quick Tip of the Week - Bone Support (2 min 17 sec)


Quick tip of the Week!
Bone Support.

This weeks Quick Tip of the Week is brought to you by FPVStyle.com
Check out their newly redesigned website! www.fpvstyle.com

Bone support is basically the method of reducing stress on muscles that can create camera shakes and unwanted movement. This is the same as resting the camera on a bench or a tripod since it provides additional support to the camera.

If you are filming for long periods, bone support can be used to relax and give time for recovery while still filming.

Other ways to reduce stress are counterweighting the camera with a shoulder rig but that is a lot more to build.

Other ways to stabilize footage would be through the use of a brushless gimbal. Check out FPVstyle.com for a variety of handheld brushless gimbals for everything from cell phones to DSLR's

Please subscribe and let me know what you think of the quick tips!

If you are interested in getting your product out there, please contact me! I prefer through RCgroups.com but will communicate through what ever method you need!
