RCFS#9: The Cost for Good R/C Electronics + HK Price Comparison! (4 min 54 sec)

Episode 9 of the RC Foam Show (RCFS)

Watch the video to learn how much I spent at my LHS for some electronics for a 3D foamie. The parts and electronics in the video are GOOD quality, TRUSTED products that will not fail or die out easily. See about how much it would cost to get the same stuff from HK.

The whole point of me building this foamy is so that it will last a long time. So, I bought some quality stuff to go with it. Peace of mind.

Subscribe to support the RCFS and to see the Crack Yak build and get flown!

Blade mCPX V2 Slow Flight in the Wind (1 min 26 sec)

Slow flight with my Blade mCPX V2. All stock except for the extended tail boom upgrade. Flying without the tail fin; that way it'll fly better in the wind.

For this small of a heli it's nice and stable in the wind.

Blade mCPX 3D With Inverted Crash on Tar! (1 min 3 sec)

Motor bogged out at the end, I was using full negative pitch but the brushed motor is wearing down from all the fast 3D lately... I may go brushless eventually. Sorry about the bad filming, my brother is still getting used to following the tiny thing around. NO damage from the crash! But later on the mCPX did break. One of the servo's gears stripped. I'll try to get it back up and flying relatively soon.

Thanks for watching and please subscribe!

I get a trainer airplane to learn on > the wind carries plane into a tree

I buy a DLG to have fun with > its wing cracks in half

I get a micro heli to do some 3D with > I don't have the money to pay for more parts

I buy some foam to get in scratchbuilding > I can barely afford the electronics/parts to make it fly


LOL... *Sigh*
