For gods sake don't do anything stupid with your machines. Keep everything out of the NEWS right now, it is vital to our hobby to fly with the upmost respect around the public. It seemes to me they are looking for a reason any reason to shut this whole thing down. Untill it simmers down "lay low" and let thing settel down a bit. We dont need any hot dogers or show off's right now. Try to teach folks around you that it is not a invasion to them, but a step in technoligy to better them. I'm just saying...

I just saw on CNN that the feds are now outlawing the use of "Drones" in all national parks in the USA. What next.

I wanted to fly my mini quad at night, so I built a lite kit that velcro's to the underside of the quad. It is fully self contained with it's own batt. pack and has bright green solid lit for the front of it. The rest of them blink red and blue, so it is very easy to fly it at night. I made it from two old mini heli's I had laying around. What I did was rob the whole board and then sodered the 4 lites that go out to the arms. It turned out really nice and is just what I was looking for. I will try to post a video of it in flight later.

Hi guys, I recived a gift from one of my customers the other day and wanted to post it.
It's a AMF Wen Mac teather car from the 1960's It's powered by a rare Thunderbolt .049 (still in the bag). it's brand new in the box with all hardware and decals. I did some research but was not able to find much on it.
Anyways just thought it would be fun to post.

A buddy of mine loaned me some Fat Sharks, I hope the weather will allow me to use them this weekend. This FPV thing is new to me so I wan't to see what kind of learning curb it is before I buy my own, and I am working on a shoot with a filming crew and I wanted him (the director) to use them so he can fram the shot. So this weekend looks like it should be fun and different, as well. I hope the Quad does well I will post some footage later if all goes well.

Well I finished my build on the 650 and I think it will be a great machine. I am still getting it diled in. Here is a video of some hover testing. I turned the PI and I gains down after this video and it did tame it down a bit.
