Their Vision:

Tried, tested and true, the TBRC 60 V2.0 is the ultimate in FPV flying wing platforms. Since its incarnation it has proved to be a first class design finding its flying playground all over the globe. We didn't just bring back the 60, we have improved it. Months of R & D has gone into the re-release to give you everything you would expect from a TBRC Wing.

Durability, stability, unequivocal performance and flight characteristics. This craft is as sleek and sexy as ever. By using complex methods to perfect and tweak it there was only one possible outcome.... This wing kicks ass!!!

We strive for perfection in all of our designs and use only high quality components for our wing kits. Our cores are manufactured from durable 1.7# EPP foam purchased directly from a Canadian Manufacturing Plant. The Balsa we use for control surfaces is of the highest quality as are the fiberglass and carbon fiber spars we use. Every kit ships with more than enough high quality 3mil laminate to do the job. If its not perfect it will not make it out the door.

I've got a bunch of LED's available that I'm not using. So if you want set of LED's for your Mini to add some "bling", these are pretty darn bright, light weight and easy to hook up. They are great for making a light bar at the rear, under the belly and/or on the arms. The fpv buddy I fly with can spot me a lot easier. See pic.

Included in each set: $5
  • 4 Strips of SMD 5050 LEDs - no pos/neg wire - for wire diagram only.
  • Each strip 50mm long -(3 lights in each strip) - 12 volt
  • Peel-away stick-on backing. I suggest placing electrical black tape between LEDs & carbon frames.
  • Non-waterproof (Lighter in weight)

Colors available:
  • Red
  • Green
  • White
  • Blue (sold out for now - expect to have more end of the month, you can order if you want. You'll be first to get when they come in)

You can choose any variation of the colors that equal 4 strips - ie
  • 2 blue & 2 red
  • 4 strips white / red / green / blue
  • 3 green & 1 white

PAYPAL - Money must be gifted at Paypal. I can't eat the paypal fees, stamp & envelope.
Free shipping CONUS.
Comes in standard first class envelope.

If interested email me at fpvaviator@gmail.com or PM me here.
Put "LEDS" in the subject line.

OR

To make things easier, if you want to just "order" yourself, just go straight to paypal. My PayPal is tylerddarby@yahoo.com

1. Go to paypal and check out there. Must be gifted or sent to friend/family.
2. Make sure to incl your user name, color choice(s)...Continue Reading

Guys..I can't figure it out. I just turned on my new Fatshark Dominators V2 and the video that's recorded in the built-in DVR comes out in black and white.

Video in the goggles is in color. It also makes a weird clicking noise. Maybe you have better hearing than me. Can you help?

I'm not sure of the entire back story, but RMRC at one point was selling an LC Filter that I really liked. It performed well. I think the company's name was "Let'sFpv".

One day about 6-8 months ago it just disappeared from their inventory list and never came back in stock. I used to buy the LPF-01 from RMRC until they got this one so I was pretty bummed. The LPF-01 is ok, but I don't dig the Jst connectors and it only has pos/neg leads, leaving you to still deal with the signal wire.

That was the beauty of this filter, it had all the connections. Pos/neg/signal. Just plug in. So I was flying mini quads with a friend last month and he said the guy that makes those is gonna start selling them again. WAHOO!

I just received two in the mail after he had a pre-buy special going on. So it's back and he's got 4 vendors for it. Tough luck RMRC (I think they'll stay in business anyways).

Chatted with the guy via pm over at fpvlabs and was very happy he was gonna continue making this filter. So here's a vid showing off some DVR footage results & how to set it up.

Enjoy.

Disclaimer: I get nothing from this. I paid for my filters and won't get anything in return for this plug. I just like to share a good product for fpv when I see it.
