It was boredom vs cold.....boredom won and I got out of the cave for a couple of flights. I really enjoy my 1cell micro FPV....they are quiet and safer than the brushless

Every FPV racer should have a 1cell racer as a prerequisite

Hubsan motors and props

Marking this day, first outdoor flight of the 120.....I am once again hooked on micros

120 build with Nano FC and 8.5 motors....turning unusable flying space into race tracks!

It starts with a Nano Qx brainz....

You can build an insane micro acro machine or a micro FPV rig that flies like a 250

Thanks Micro Motor Warehouse

If Benedikt didn't share.... Would we have any fun micros?

....I highly dislike the way Hubsans fly

Should I?

Horizon Hobby Outburst 1/14 Scale motorcycle

I am impressed with the build, you can take body off and the led lights have connectors, that's a great feature at this price point

4 sold at my LHS and counting....the goal is 50 in October!

I get to test how far I can go with my Mach 25 this weekend. I'm tempted to buy another mini patch since I only have a full size RHCP patch...the mini is so much more convieninet and also has a wider beam.

I hope my patch antenna does the job so I can just fly my Mach 25 the way she is.

I really like my full size patch antenna with a 13db gain...I can fly in noisy rf fields with little to no video problems...

My mini patch just got delivered today at Robin's Hobby in Glendale!

Of course I had to get matching LHCP antennas for the quad...

This mini patch looks so tiny!

Im a Horizon supporter, I haven't even flown my Virtex and I bought a Mach 25 as soon as it hit my LHS.

She looks great nice and compact.....its smaller than a regular 250

I have one big problem.....the canopy cuts half of the picture and the camera doesn't have tilt, this maybe my first Horizon Hobby return

I really wanted to like this...I would keep her at $300....but since I paid $429 I expect this guy to be as well thought out as the Immersionrc Vortex

my first Horizon Hobby that I regret buying

I need more practice..... And better goggles with more resolution. I forgot to upgrade, I can't believe I'm really into this. I purchased the FPV vapor set just to try FPV....just to see if I like it. I like it!

First IDRA race:....oooops I really shouldn't be running these anymore. Hope the new Domintors come in soon or I might have to qualify in San Diego . Long Beach is so much closer.

Emax 250
1806 with 5040 on 3s is where I'm currently most comfortable in.

thanks to my 13db patch antenna I've been able to practice my high speed runs....now it's just the battery that's giving up on me

6 packs good times....I had a close call when I heard rustling leaves....had to land in a hurry and check if it was a snake

No snake

Bent landing gear....my eMax 250 is great!

Hi I'm helldiver and I am a nerd!

I'm having too much fun....I got bummed every time I heard the time warning on my DX9....I just want to fly

Good times, I'm happy FPV gave me the satisfaction of flying again
