Here is a beautiful sunset flight of my FMS 750mm A-1 Skyraider V2 on 3S, using the Lemon Rx 7-Channel Receiver with Stabilizer. (Click the "Show More" tab for details..)

FMS A-1 Skyraider V2 750 mm w/ Lemon Rx 7-Channel Receiver / Stabilizer Sunset Flight (5 min 4 sec)

I found this FMS 750mm model sadly collecting dust at a Hobbytown USA store, an hour and a half south of my home on sale for $74, with a $20 off closeout sticker. Recognizing the FMS model, I immediately asked for it from the salesman.

Setup on this plane was fairly straightforward. However, like most of the FMS 750-800mm line that Ive experienced, there were a few hurdles to get past. To begin with, there was some was some confusion regarding the proper CG for this model. The Skyraider box had indicated a 40mm CG, but the manual called for a 65mm CG. To get a hint of which CG to go with, I measured the chord at wing root, divided by three, and started there for my initial measurement (thanks for the tip, Crash Override of RCGroups.com). The measurement was evaluated to be at 35mm, which is where my Skyraider balanced at. A few additional factors that helped dialing the CG was the usage of the heavier Eflite 3S 1350mAh 30C Lipo Battery (placed full forward in the battery slot with no foam cutting required), as well as swapping out the stock FMS 20-Amp ESC for a slightly heavier Eflite 30-Amp Pro Switch-Mode BEC Brushless ESC (V2) (placed in the port-side midsection of the...Continue Reading

Pics of the P68. Looks like there are bulkheads and templates for just about everything. Title block says 2 sheets, and that's what I have. So nothing is missing.

Here is my latest completion of an intense build. This model is the second try after the clearcoat messed up the decals on the first. Thankfully I was able to salvage the lightbar and get another car in to rebuild. I then installed 77 LEDs and 6 circuit boards. More is in the video.

From where I started, I am surprised to see the DHD D1 eating up my time.

I'm on a side track off a diversion from a detour. I'm proverbially up to my armpits in alligators and have forgotten about draining the swamp.

And loving it.

Tracing the circuitry has proved difficult impossible.

I had to crack open another (!) DHD D1 so I can take a different approach. I will probe the circuit while it is alive with the original firmware, perhaps "on the table" hooked to my LEDcopter rig. I do have the motors but it is enough fun and I could argue diagnostically useful in advance of deployment.

I made a tiny probe out of a carpet needle. I have an old logic probe that will work well enough. It will take my time.

No luck getting outside this blustery autumn day a bit cold, way too windy.

Vertical stab anchored in the fuselage.

I'll make the stab first and after sheeting it, plug it into the fuselage.
Then fuselage planking.

Hi guys, this will be my first review on rcgroups. I got a 105mm brushed quadcopter from gearbest. You can find it here http://www.gearbest.com/rc-quadcopte...#lkid=10128250. It's pretty standard, based on a F3 brushed flight with 4x 8025 coreless motors. It comes fully loaded, you only need to add a receiver and your transmitter. I'm not the best pilot, but flying is just great. Last but not least, you have no hassle with the transport due to the small size of the quad.Here is a video of my first flight tests:
LT105 brushed fpv quadcopter test (1 min 26 sec)

It comes in a small box, which includes
  • ARF 105mm quadcopter
  • AIO FPV cam, 520TVL, 5.8G, 32CH
  • 2x600mah 1s Lipo
  • 4x 60mm propellers
Here is a short unboxing video:

A new batch of X-Racer F303 Flight Controller V3.1 has just arrived today. You can now order and enjoy the same day shipping.

The link: http://www.fpvmodel.com/x-racer-f303...ler_g1106.html

The newest version of the X-RACER F303 is Version 3.1. We have listened to your requests for SPI and weve went and changed the MPU 6050 over to MPU 6000 in order to give you those faster loop times that youve been asking for.

We've tried to keep the changes minimal with this and have left all of the previous changes that many requested the same. This board still comes with the through holes for Vbat, RSSI, and the buzzer. It also comes with the dedicated SBUS and RGB LED connections. X-Racer is designed for racers and acro pilots so we keep the desing simple and durable. Have fun with it!
