We also have in stock the Foxeer HS1185 1/3 700TVL Mini CMOS Camera Super WDR at a great price.
I'm currently using one on my 5" Shiv from Drone Eclipse, and I have been very pleased with it. Light handling is great!

Hello all,
I like to store my batteries at 50% charge so I decided to build a discharger. I found a small and inexpensive discharge controller which is perfect for the job. The power is dissipated by two 6 ohm 50 w power resistors (commonly used to add a load to automotive LED lights). This discharger automatically shuts down when the battery reaches about 50% charge (15.06 volts). I added a voltmeter and an aluminum heat sink case to finish the project. Inexpensive and reliable. Hope this helps. Thanks.

iSDT SC608 150W Balance Charger Review (4 min 55 sec)


Where I got it http://goo.gl/FS0GvC

Talk about a handy machine! The iSDT SC608 can do it all. I like how compact it is, and how easy to read the readout is, as you see in the video the screen is above the rest.

It will charge, discharge and storage your battery, is fully adjustable, can be powered by almost anything, Ive seen others use a cigarette lighter plug adapter, I plan to use 12 volt sources as well.

Its very intuitive to operate, and very easy to use, they did a great job! This will live in my field box for something to use on the run. Love it.

Hello,

I bought a Walkera QR X350 PRO Quadcopter and I am unable to code bind it and unable to upgrade the fireware. i am getting no help from the online vendor I bought it from which is Rotor logic.com. Could someone please give me some advice on who in the USA can help me resolve my issue. I have not got to fly the quadcopter and I really would like to get some flight time in the fall with the foliage coming in. I live in North Carolina so if any of you now anyone that could help me please let me know.

Thanks,

Matt Stewart:

I recently bought a sailboat model at a thrift store and know very little about it. From what I have found on the internet it looks to be a 1934 America's cup J-class Endeavor. Unfortunately it seems that i just have the "hull". I would like to finish the boat with sails but am not familiar with what ti look for. I have attached an image below and would be welcome to any type of information that someone may have on the boat and what to do in order to finish my boat. I appreciate your time in advance.

Best,
Taylor

I've been working on/thinking about this one for a while, I found a spare cosmic interceptor kit in my box that wasn't allocated to kits, and put this together. Based on an F-16, of course with a longer nose due to the interceptor cone. I went with a mid mounted wing and full flying tail only. I had to cut off one of the speed brake tabs on one side so that I could slide the wing in the slot, then glued it back in place, then slide the stabilators on and glued on the capture rings to hold them in place. Did some glide tests in the house before equipment install and took a swag at the boost CG. RTF weight came out right at 11.25 ounces before finishing. Did two test flights today in about 10mph winds, handled it really well, and I was able to move the CG back slightly.

I started using some vinyl to do the markings and so far she is coming out pretty nicely. I had to modify the thunderbird scheme slightly since I'm cutting this freehand and the nose being long, I did some nose and mid stripes so the middle wouldn't seem too plain. RTF now she is 11.75 oz. Just waiting for some small stars/bars and lettering.
