The Mobius Action Camera is great for alot of RC enthusiasts. It gives us a light weight camera for aerial photography and videography. The firmware keeps improving, adding to the cameras usages. It's great as a dashcam. Recently, I wanted to add some time-lapse footage for an intro. The time-lapse photo option gave me chuncky video, regardless of the editor. So I tried the time-lapse video feature and was blown away.

Now that's one hell of a roll rate. I find learning 3D much more difficult, than flying a 90 mph flying wing.

The Twisted Hobbys/RC Factory Extra Slick, with a twist. Very different flight characteristics. Both wings are ripped, at bottom, giving it an upwards shape.

It still flies, but rolls take a fortnight

Decided on adding no music for this video.

Extra Slick V wing (3 min 39 sec)


The more wind, the more pressure to the wing structure, giving it an unpredictable flight experience. It was still fun. I had the Crack Yak 55" in the car, but this was so unique to fly, so decided on putting all my packs through it.

Floaty on 2s, agressive on 3s.

All stock Blade 300 X bound to my DX 8. It flies surprisingly well out of the box. The plastic servo gears have held up, so far (4 flights). The tail has no wag, and stays solid.

On idle up though, it makes a strange sound I have never heard before. Not sure if it's canopy resonance, or something else completly. For now I'm still getting the hang of it, so idle up is sometime in the future anyway.

Heres a little vid of the 2nd flight. Nothing fancy, just getting a feel for the bird:

This is the plane to get if you want to roll faster than your makita drill. I like the size of the thing. It is very light and suprizingly durable. All up a good investment for anyone wanting to get into 3D or take their game to a new level.

All of these videos are without a camera gimball and GPS. It's all hands-on flying The videos at the top are the newest, and the ones at the bottom are the "oldest"
I usually fly with a GoPro at the front facing at an approx. 30deg downwards angle. The GoPro is in it's waterproof housing, and has a cheap 52mm ND4 filter pressed on. On the back of the quad is the mobius w. anti-jello setup (set the to sunny and added the flitetest ant-jello mobius mount)

Only managed to get 13!! flights in before one of the motors crapped out. Tried some v959's, but they lacked power. Checked where I purchased the Alias, and noticed they had some "Black Devil" motors in stock. A guy called Benedict Haak confirmed his company Micro Motor Warehouse made these motors. So I changed out the 959's with the plug'n'play "Black Devils" and now feel the dark side of the force

130 X stock setup

These videos show the Blade 130 X flying with zero upgrades, bling, subtrim and the like. The tail wag is obvious and will be my first fix.

2014 all about the Crack

RC Factory/ Twisted Hobbys products take a beating better than most. They are easy to fix and cheap. Most of my retailers sell their stuff, so it's a good choice for my crummy flying

Finally getting the hang of hovering:

January 2014


Most of my flying is indoors, due to the cold/dark/windy weather outside

I have also managed to *upgrade* my first TelinK Toro 900 with a 3S battery configuration. It's alot quicker now, but much less floaty (have the 2S version for that)

Nighthawk74 the last 4 years

I have had a ball in the last 4 years. Started out trying a co-axial heli, and from there on, I was sold. The co-ax flew over my house roof never to be seen again, but I stuck to it. Later progressed through the UM Blade helis and UM planes, from Horizon. Now I like Wings and 3D Foamies. Every now and then I go back and have fun with the UMs, but mostly fly the bigger stuff now.

The HeeBeeGeeBees


This bird is a firecracker. Certainly not for the noob, or the 2nd plane even.
It does have AS3X, which makes it less responsive to wind.
