Here is the flight of my Durafly EFXtra 975mm PNF on 4S power.

Durafly EFXtra 975mm PNF 4S Flight (4 min 40 sec)

My friend Zach made a surprise visit at the park to see my Durafly EFXtra in action and decided to try his hand at capturing the flight footage. He did an excellent job considering that he normally doesn’t record anything like this. I think the Durafly EFXtra and its ridiculous 100+ mph speed took him by surprise. As Zach would say, she’s “stupid fast!!”

JJRC H345 Foldable Drone Review and Flight Test - You Get Two Quadcopters for the Price of One (18 min 4 sec)


Ok, so the first question some of you might ask is: can you fly them both at the same time? Well, technically you can since they both bind to the controller at the same time, but you won't be able to control them both adequately. These little foldable drones/quadcopters fly great and the fact that you get two for the price of one is a pretty darn good deal. These are good flippers with bright LEDs and they charge up within 30-minutes or so. They have built-in 3.7v 200mah batteries and both will get you 5-minutes each. The listing says they have altitude hold, but they definitely do not.

This programming card is specifically designed for the ZTW Mantis Series electronic speed controls.

HOW TO USE THE LED PROGRAM CARD:

ZTW Program card with LED display is easy to use and convenient to carry. All of the programmable functions are shown on the program card.
Turn on the ESC. Remove the signal wire and plug it into the top-socket on the program card, wait for 2 seconds until the LED is on.
If ESC is not connected with the batteries, the program card should be connected with other power supply, the range of power supply is from 5.0V to 6.3V.

http://www.ztwshop.com/product/Program-Card/
Press the button ”Menu” on the program card and circularly select each programmable function. At that time the number of programmable function will be displayed on the left of the LED, the current value will be displayed on the right side. Then press the button “Value” to change the value and press the button “OK” to confirm. At the same time the Red indicating LEDs of both program card and the ESC will blink. Turn off the ESC, the modified settings will be saved in the ESC`s memory.
Press the button “Reset” to restore the default settings.
SPECIFICATIONS:

1.Size: 70.0mm*45.0mm*13.0mm (L*W*H)
2.Weight: 23.0g

Real Flight 8 . This is my first RealFlight SW purchase. Now that they support third-party USB devices that made it more appealing for me.

I was on ClearView RC for years before this.

I was initially a bit disappointed since the improvement in physics over ClearView didn't seem enough to warrant an extra $100. I pretty much fly fixed wing 3D.

However after trying out the Sbach 32% and I more satisfied. That plane seems be way more realistic than the other stock 3D planes, off-the shelf tuning is better.

However I still find it too easy to hover in RF8.

ClearView while a bit quirky in the hovering space presented more of a challenge. Therefore anyone practicing hovering in ClearView would stand a better chance in real life. Expect that RealFlight supports torque rolls that ClearView does not do a great job with.

However I am failing to see a large difference between the other stock non-3D planes in RF8 and CV. In both sims the planes track as if they have a gyro....i.e. very well and fly pretty much the same.

I would say that anyone on a budget should still consider CV, it got me years of mileage and still learnt 3D on it. I can totally see a parent on a budget purchasing CV for their kid who wants to get into RC and needs a very decent simulator.

However for the $100, RF8 has tons more features (challenge, scenery creator, drones, VR support, easier plane model setup, better wind simulation) and the stock SBach 32% is more generally realistic on RF8 than the best 3D plane in CV.

Hey fellow Classic Pattern Enthusiasts,

Image updates - Just want to post a link to the submissions thread for Classic Pattern Plane images that you'd like to see in the Gallery.

Sorry for neglecting the Image Gallery. I have several other online projects that I'm focusing on right now.

I have a large cache of images, actully the second part of an update I started but haven't finished, i think its M thru Z planes collected over the, eek!, last few years. So haven't lost interest, just a lack of time issue.

Here's the link to the submissions thread I started for adding photos. RCG-s-Classic-Image-Gallery-update-A-Z-planes submission thread.

Post them here and I'll eventually get them in the Gallery.

Hope to update the Gallery soon.

Regards,

Bryan

This ZTW Gecko series ESC is a high-quality,

Source from: http://www.ztwshop.com/product/ztw-g...brushless-esc/

efficient brushless electronic speed control with an integrated switch-mode BEC. It can operate without the need for a separate receiver battery to power your servos and receivers saving you weight and simplifying your electronic connections. The Gecko series includes an aluminum heat sink body which is lightweight and helps dissipate heat more efficiently. The BEC on the Gecko has been specifically designed to support higher current applications to eliminate the possibility of unwanted shutdowns, and it is also capable of supporting simultaneous multiple servo operations typically found in large-scale airplanes and CCPM equipped large-scale 3D helicopters. If you are looking for a top of the line, full-featured ESC at a competitive price, the ZTW Gecko is the logical choice.

FEATURES:

Data logging system such as temperature, voltage, current, and RPM
SBEC Voltage Output 5.0, 6.0, 7.4, and 8.4V
Advanced Governor Mode and soft start
High SBEC Current Output, continuous 8A and burst 16A, designed to meet your high current applications
Power arm protection, over-heat protection, low-voltage protection and lost-signal protection
Secondary sub-menu setting by the LCD program card or your PC
Super smooth and accurate throttle linearity
Support for most motors, including high RPM motors
Programmable motor timing
Utilizes new smaller MOSFET technology...Continue Reading
