New $40 adventure! Wonder what it will cost by the time it's all put together? Parts for the older style 270T are near impossible to get. Might have some custom parts and modifications on this one.

I made this from a GWS Pico retract unit that I modified. I cut the main axle in half and drilled all the way through the trunnion. This way I could run the strut all the way through and mount a 90 degree arm on it. Then connected a tiny ball link.

It seems that the AMA relishes the fact that Mr Turner's win against the FAA has been overturned, and the registration of all powered model aircraft and drones will continue, or be required.
For the Law abiding flyers.

The Drone pilots that caused all this concern will continue to fly unlicensed Uav's, and will continue to thumb their noses at any authority trying to govern their activities.

Apparently, the AMA is as ineffectual at controlling Congress as Mr. Turner is...But Mr.Turner had great results for a while...
.AMA, not so much.

AMA will put a great 'spin' on this, as to how we should join the Righteous fight, but guys, it's a lost cause...Tell the AMA to spend your membership money (from now on described as 'their' money) on flying sites, instead of fighting an unwinnable war on the FAA..

If the AMA had distanced them selves from anything that didn't look like a model airplane, years ago, this may not be the subject of our discussion.
If you hold a drone and a model airplane in front of a standard citizen, they will recognize two separate items. The AMA only 'sees' one...
If they are THAT blind, there is no hope...
How many plans are available for a scratch built drone ? Are you 'hearing' me yet ?

The Rohingya refugee crisis is an age-old tale of displacement and suffering, but technology is providing new tools to tackle it, rights groups and charities said on Wednesday. Powerful drone and satellite images are bringing to life the urgent needs of more than 800,000 Rohingya refugees who fled to Bangladesh from Myanmar, while also providing strong evidence of abuses, which could be used to lobby for justice. The UNHCR is using videos and photographs shot with drones to show the scale of the displacement crisis and bring it to life to spur action from the public and donors.

I have been having some issues with my drone just falling out of the sky and I have been trying to fix it but a solder came lose and I resoldered it back on and then I notice a component was missing on the board and then flight controller (seriously dodo) started to get hot and I was wondering if it was because the component was missing. If anybody thinks it that and if I should get a new pdb? But I donít know

I've got 2 to build now.....that little blue foam fighter (The Blue Brick) and now this one..a twin engine (wing mount) variant of the Avro CF-105 Arrow....I've built this one before with moderate success.....hopefully this one will perform much better.....I call her the CF-105.2

I built it a couple of years ago with cardboard nacelles and a lot less knowledge about fan sweep areas and efflux cones...she flew, but I'm hoping this version will fly better, especially with new (read : better designed) nacelles

VIFLY is a relatively new FPV Racing Drone manufacturer, but they are diving in head first, and arriving with quite the bang!

The new VIFLY R130 is an amazing looking quadcopter that is built from high quality components. This little racer is designed to be tough, fast, and user friendly.

Aimed at pilots that are graduating from LOS quads, that are ready to get their feet wet in the world of FPV racers, this 130mm bird is loaded with features. For starters the model is available as a Frsky, Flysky, or Spektrum BNF. You also get the popular Omnibus F4 FC, BLHeli-S DShot 15A ESC's, 1306 4100kv motors, a 700TVL 1/4 inch CMOS FPV camera, and a 5.8ghz 40 channel VTX with 25mw/200mw/500mw power output options. They also include two full sets of DAL 3045 props, a prop wrench, and some rubber landing pads. All in all this is a very complete package for getting started. Just add your choice of radio, batteries, and charger, and you have yourself a very high quality, high performance racer.

Speaking of high performance, VIFLY wanted to be sure you didn't outgrow your racer too quickly, so they made this quad capable of 3s and 4s power. For most getting started with FPV racing drones, 3s power is plenty, and is quite fast with 4100kv motors. You will eventually be ready for more speed, and punch though, and when you are, just strap in a 4s battery, and off you go. I will be posting video of this quad flying on both 3s and 4s so that you can see exactly what kind of performance to...Continue Reading
