Yo everybody -

Here's the custom FPV setup that I soldered together for a member on here. The equipment:

RMRC 1.3 GHz, 300mw vTX
RMRC 1.3 GHz Standard RX
RMRC 1.3 GHz Standard Patch Antenna
Plug for PZ0420
Plug for vTX
Two Plugs for HobbyKing Simple OSD Connection
Deans "Tap" Adapter
In-line Filter
Deans Plug for Receiver
Two (Stock) Whip Antennas

Total build time took about 3 hours plus a little bit. Not bad, actually... I double and triple checked all the connections and such just to make sure that they were solid. I'm very proud of my work! If you're looking for a custom FPV setup then please contact me!

Yo everybody -

I recently ordered the Binary 900 DLG kit from Hobby King with 3 servos and an RX pack. I'll be using a BEC that I already have... I can't wait to build this one for a second time! My first one unfortunately met its demise in a tree, so I won't be flying this one that's coming in the mail in my backyard. It should be getting here by the end of next week, and you can definitely bet that I'll be putting up lots of videos on it!

I'm hoping to get an unboxing video too, and lots of build videos on what I did to get it ready to fly.



...so stay tuned and get updates by subscribing to my channel HERE... I'm really excited to get back into DLG, and for about $170 shipped this wasn't a bad deal at all. I'm hoping to maiden it by spring once it gets warmer and thermals start coming out. But I can always test fly it before then

Thanks!

Yo everybody -

I made this compilation of the footage that I had of my Binary 900 DLG quite a while ago. I'm hoping to build this plane again... but I'll see... I was just going through my old videos on it and found this one. Enjoy!

(and subscribe/like/comment, etc.)

HK RadJet PNP: Setup/CG + Overall After Flight Thoughts (13 min 22 sec)


Enjoy + subscribe for more!

More mods on this... now it has a 6x5.5 prop, 30A ESC, and I've removed the coins in the back for optimal performance and cut out the foam more so that the battery gets the CG right.

CrashTestHobby Pelican Flight, Calmer Conditions... Flying Fast ;) (3 min 43 sec)


Flying my CrashTestHobby Pelican at this school's field. Handled the slight breeze fine, it was off and on most of the time, and around 7 MPH. I've got a 7x6 prop coming in the mail for this plane so I'll get longer flight times and more speed. But this plane really isn't designed for speed

I'm getting about 25-30 minutes of flight time off of this plane currently. Setup:

ExceedRC 1360kv Motor, 7x4 prop (soon to be upgraded to a 7x6 prop)
Fli-Power 30A ESC
1600 mAH 3S Turnigy 20C Battery Pack
Parkzone SV80 and Solar Servo A107
DX5e + AR400 (soon to be DX6i and OrangeRX, probably)
