Does it look familiar? No, this is not the DJI Mavic Pro. He's an unapologetic imitator with a considerably lower price.

If you're stuck in this seemingly inexhaustible deadly grip of winter right now, flying a drone is probably the last thing you think about. But better climate will arrive so why not take advantage of a drone agreement while you can?

Have you heard about the DJI Mavic Pro, the $ 1,000 quadcopter that everyone wants but few can afford? Guess what? There is a clone For a limited time, Rcmoment.com has the Obtain F803 for $ 347.99. That is after applying the promotion code RCF803 in the payment process. (Make sure you have selected the white or black model, the other costs even less, but lacks the remote control, which I consider essential)

The Obtain F803 looks and feels very similar to the Mavic Pro: metal chassis, folding arms , intelligent flight modes, more than 20 minutes of flight time. Does it fly the same? I do not know that yet. It's too cold and too windy to try it. I can say that its built-in camera has a maximum of 1080p instead of 4K, and both the remote control and the application are different. A great feature that is missing: Obstacle of evasion.

Got the Cub out for more flights today. Put an APC prop on it and a 30 amp ESC. Enjoyed the day. I am going to put a .10 Power up in it. Think that will be the last mod. It's a great little flyer!

I am late to the party on getting the Flyzone Seawind but am pleasantly surprised by how well the Flyzone Seawind handles in the Air, on the ground and on water. It's also surprisingly easy to grease her in at a slow pace (1:45). Well just see for yourself...

As I've been growing in knowledge & making mistakes I've had to adjust my builds.

I was having issues getting my GPS & MAG running. I tried doing the pull up resistor mod to 2 different GPS puck without success.

I decided to remove my F4V3 board & install my F7V2 board into the first build quad in order to see if I had a FC problem or just bad pucks.
It turns out I believe I have smoked both my pucks doing the Mods.

While doing the board swap, I added the Run-Cam Pro2, Video TX to the quad.

I have new DJI pucks ordered for the builds along with another F7 FC.

I also have 2 sets of BL-Heli 32, 30A D-shot ready ESC's in my parts box.

Once I get all my goodies installed & configured I'll be ready for test flights.
I can't hardly wait.

Hey Everyone!

I'm new to RC & Quads.. I have an electronics background, Good with all the assembly, fabrication, soldering, schematics, etc...

I wanted to start a hobby that expanded my electronics knowledge & one that I could share/teach my kids & have a ball at the same time. RC Quads seemed to be the obvious choice.

I am currently building: Completed / not flying yet

250mm All Carbon Nighthawk
EMAX MT2204/2300KV motors(came with kit)
12A BL Heli OneShot 125 ESC's (came with kit)
FrSky X9D-plus
X4RBS / SBus
Matek PDB
Floureon 4S 45C 1500mAh
Omnibus F4 V3 Pro FC
Running iNAV 1.8

I wanted to build this Quad & learn as much as possible to get my feet wet & learn to fly.
I have a large yard & a giant open field across the street as an all line of sight playground.
I am having issues getting the GPS & MAG working properly. I need to resolve these issues before I can get off the ground. I'm thanking everyone in advance for any help & knowledge I can gain here. I also apologize up front for any dumb questions I have. I'm positive there will be some.

I also have a second build: Incomplete

250mm Nighthawk ( same kit as above )
X4RBS / SBus
OmniBus F7 V2
iNAV 1.8

Run-Cam Eagle Pro
Mach 2 Video Transmitter.

Please feel free to question, comment or bash.

I have a zmr 250 frame with emax 2204 motors and I was wondering what motors would be good to upgrade and replace the ones I have and I like emax. I was thinking the 2306 race motors but I didn’t know if they would fit on my frame and I heard they have a lot of thrust and are reliable motors. If anybody has any ideas on motors that would be great!

I got a hull from a friend. Electrics were dead so I threw in some leftovers. Tested in the bathroom sink. Water everywhere. Promising! Since the black hull and orange canopy looked incredibly toyish and plasticky I did my own Pollock with tape and paint. I broke most painting rules

Next was the Syma S800g. 4 channel indoor helicopter, more speed and agility than the 107, and more difficult to master. Rudder on the right stick and aileron on the left stick wasn't helpful

Hi everybody,

so a friend of mine and me are working in our free time on a project, we call it Dexx Diversity, basically in the beginning was it a triple 5,8 GHz Receiver which you mount on a stand like a Ground Station. With the time we developed the Hardware we thought that i would be cool if the Long Range guys could have some of out project so we developed a proper a 1,2 GHz full diversity adapter which can work with the Fox or Comtech receivers.
Between the hardware samples we added the Bootloader and the possibility to update the software via the USB, the possibility to turn on/off the receivers in example for battery saving, the second, parallel video output and some other features that I cant more remember

So here the specification:

- ARM microcontroller
- 2-4S supply,
- 3 x5,8GHz receiving modules,
- every RX module independently switched on/off,
- 2 parallel audio/video outputs,
- 48 Channels including Low Band on 5,8 GHz
- 8 Channels on 1,2 GHz
- Bandscan for 5,8 and 1,2 GHz,
- battery monitor with Low Voltage alarm function,
- 1,2 GHz Long Range adapter,
- firmware update via built in USB Port,
- 3D printed casing,
- dimensions 5,8 GHz 83x70x23mm
- Laptimer in beta mode

We are working the whole time on the software and housing to make it better and prettier. For now we have a separate housing for the 5,8GHz and 1,2GHz Module but we are working on a combo housing that can hold all the 5,8GHz and 1,2GHz electronics.

A few pictures from the workbench this weekend. I didn't get much time to work on the Poke, but I did manage to compete the center section of the wing and start one of the panels. The hand plane and balsa stripper have come in handy.
