We got a ton of snow today. I was sort of hoping winter was over

Once thing this plane has over the EF16 is the intake isn't on the bottom, so the snow doesn't get sucked into the intake. ROG isn't a pretty sight on the F16, but the Habu can do it in the right snow conditions.
Yup, the iPhone trumps the inexpensive Sony. Nicely done.

Call me a quality snob but there is no way a 1300 Sony camera is inferior to an Iphone. Zoom, image stabilization and a viewfinders are all necessary for good video, otherwise it's just another home movie. The only thing missing is a good videographer (which is vanishingly rare).

That being said it's a cool vid.

Well, yea, that's what I meant. If the end product isn't good, that means the camera was too hard for the videographer to use. As you know, mastering the zoom takes a lot of effort for fast action panning. It's easy to get tunnel vision and miss everything, or shake so bad the footage is unuseable. See my previous video and you'll see what I mean:

I didn't mean the quality was better. That would be silly.

Oh sorry, it was a sarcasm comprehension fail.

Admiral14, SalamSyed, Perfeet: Thanks for the simulator program info. If anyone gets to use one of these programs or some other one(s) in which the Habu can be "flown", let us know.

Habu Battery Choice

Hi Chaps,

I'm looking into purchasing a few batteries for my Habu and I'm toying with buying the following batteries. DLG RC Battery 20C 40C 3200mAh 14.8V 4S Li-Po @ $34.95 a pop.... cheap yes!!! Will I have an issue with having a 40C Burst Rate?

Cheers,

Gordon

No, but a good 30c battery will increase your power, the 4s 3200 30c from xtremepowersystems.net is what I use. They fit great and produce a peak of 800 watts.


Hobbycity also has some nice 30c batteries for even less than the xps ones

The shipping cost on the battery you posted is 30$. Which brings the total price to 65$, which hobbycity can beat.

http://hobbycity.com/hobbycity/store..._30C_Lipo_Pack

there is a 30c version of that battery for 40$, and hobbycity shipping isn't going to be 30$

Depends on where you get the 30c from although 25c would cover it,the more c you got the better.

Your welcome! The zippy and rhino packs have worked well for me
