Recently updated my business website, Custom FPV Setups. Put on some new information, and working on the mobile site as well. Business is in full swing, spring time is a great time to get ready for the summer flying season!
My Axial SCX10 Deadbolt (only upgrade is aluminum steering pushrod). Spring is coming... eventually... and everything's melting. WARNING: the RX box in the stock Deadbolt is NOT WATERPROOF, it has a big hole in the side (LOL) for the RX wires. You have to waterproof it yourself. I used a balloon, zip ties and a little hot glue to completely seal both the box and the RX itself inside the box just in case.
The truck performs VERY well though in these conditions. SUPER torquey.

Flying behind obstacles? 15:05
Long range = More fun? 16:23
Spektrum = OK for FPV? 19:13

For anybody who's interested in pure gliders, here's a ready to assembly high start kit for about $30, called the "Up Start" by Dynaflite. Looks good to me so far.
~300 feet of launching space needed for a 200 foot launch. Takes up to 3m wingspans from what I've read so far. There also is a 2m or less version with 1/8'' tubing compared to this one which has 3/16'' tubing.
