well I wanted to do this for sometime now so I started the ball rolling.

I am tearing down a HP plotter to use the components for a cnc mill, just another project I will never complete but it sure is fun so far.

Product page @ Banggood

Banggood sent me the Drillpro 400W 220V Variable Speed Rotary Tool for review . So I would just like to take this opportunity and say thank you ! I have owned a lot of these rotary tools over the last 30+ years and in all fairness some have been decent , some have been junk and all of them have been less than perfect . I am referring to the collets that are used to hold tools in the rotary tool . If you use anything not designed specifically for that rotary tool then you will most likely suffer frustration when the drill bit or what ever just does not fit right .

So many times I have had non original tools just spin in the collet and been left with either trying to do something silly to get what I want or simply being forced to give up and go with a much larger and clumsy drill to do what needs doing . Well no longer . Cruising Banggood ( as I do sometimes ) , I came across this motor tool with a chuck . I was a little surprised ( pleasantly ) and after a quick enquiry I was very pleasantly surprised to find that a Drillpro Rotary Tool was on the way for review . So I took some video and just let me post that here .

What you get is a bag full of tools , sorry I didn't bother to count them . But for me , they should last for years considering just how much I use my current motor tool . It's a 220v tool and comes with a US plug , so you will...Continue Reading

Washington County, Hagerstown consider drones for emergency services. Drones could help emergency responders find a lost victim or a fire on a mountain. The county's concept plan for a consolidated Washington County Public Safety Training Center, south of Hagerstown, includes a drone-flying area. A drone-response system in the county for emergency responders is wanted.

For me the Holy Grail of DIY quads is to have some of the features that the expensive RTF multirotors have like HD Video with RC control and telemetry on the same radio. It is a pain having a RC receiver/transmitter and a telemetry transceiver and a Video transmitter. They tend to interfere with each other in the close spaces of a quad. There are commercial versions like Lightbridge for DJI. There are some expensive DIY attempts like the CUAV Hack Link which is supposed to provide HD Video and RC control but I have not seen anyone get it to work yet with RC Control.

Low Latency 16:9 CMOS RunCam Sparrow And Micro Sparrow Are Awesome!!

RunCam Sparrow & Micro Sparrow Review (16 min 28 sec)

Check out my YouTube review, setup and preferred settings for the RunCam Sparrow and Micro Sparrow. These are awesome little fpv camera's if you have goggles with a 16:9 aspect ratio, such as the Dominator V3's, Aomway Commander's or box type goggles.

Soup up your DM002 (8 min 1 sec)

Hello everyone welcome back.

Todays video is showing you how I took the DM002 and upgraded the Flight Controller, motors and camera. I had to make some slight modifications to the frame and camera mount. A huge thank you to Aaa at the Micro Motor Warehouse community for the inspiration. I love these hybrid builds.

In this build I used the BetaFPV Flight Controller along with the 17500kv 7mm x 20mm motors. This was a very simple build and required not soldering and was pretty much plug and play.

After flight testing the Funter I settled on spoilerons for approach and landing. I was hoping that flaperon would work to slow Funter down but the speed reduction was not signifigant and I had problems with aileron correction. The problem went away when I programmed spoilerons in the landing mode. I used slight camber in the D 1 postion as this slight camber had little to no effect on roll correction. I tried to program aileron to rudder mix but took it out when rudder reversal took place with both sticks being used. This yaw rate in the Apprentice receiver is set and all I could do is to bring rudder throw back down from 125 to 100% and high rate from 125 to 100%. Funter yaws fine with just rudder and would roll a little better with just a slight amount of dihedral. I will be making a bent wing tube with 6” of music wire at the mid point to set the 5 degrees of dihedral. Self Level works fine for pitch and roll despite only one aileron providing roll correction. Pitch leveling works fine. The weird thing about the Funter is that the Apprentice receiver is placed reversed so that the antennas face rear and the servo plugs face forward. The RX is Dual Locked on 3/32” balsa that is level and approx over the CG. A 30 amp Apprentice ESC is used (with brake programmed with a standard RX) and the 18 amps max power does not heat up the 1200 KV motor and 8x6 prop. Climb is OK but I will try a 4S 2200 for extra thrust (and noise).

Full power pitch down is...Continue Reading

Good flyer. World Models ARF is a good quality ARF but features like the landing gear are pretty crude. That is, no articulation. The access door is not hinged but rather it is held in with self tapping screws. Wings, of course, are removable for transport and storage but threaded screws and glued in blind nuts are a bit of an adventure to install when fastening the wing.

Setup notes for World Models 1/4 scale clipped wing Cub
  • Front switch is NOT connected because IBEC ignition eliminates a need for an ignition battery.
  • Charge A123 battery using Electrodynamics lead and the rear Electrodynamics switch for charge input.
  • Aftermarket ignition with red light mounted to the lower left front windshield. Tx must be on and Gear switch set to the ON position to run the motor.
  • Kill / ignition switch mapped to gear switch on transmitter. Red light on is to run he engine, no light means ignition is killed.
  • Motor is a DLE 30 side carb with a Bowman ring.
  • RX is a Spektrum DSM2 AR 6200 with satellite bound to my DX8 Gen 1 TX
