AGA-POWER Hi-Voltage LiPo Batteries

LiPo battery technology continues to progress and AGA-POWER have introduced a series of Hi-Voltage LiPo Batteries in 2016.

What is Hi-Voltage LiPo Battery? It’s a similar type of battery like LiPo but allows you charge it up to 4.35V per cell safely.

When you charge HVLi batteries(short for Hi-Voltage LiPo Batteries) like standard LiPo to only 4.20V per cell, they perform pretty much similar.

However when you charge them fully to 4.35V per cell you get the following advantages:

With a fully charged HVLi battery, voltage is higher than normal LiPo’s (on a 4S, HVLi is 15.2V, LiPo is 14.8V), therefore your motors will run harder at higher RPM, and your quad can fly faster theoretically

Secondly, LiHV can store more energy than LiPo per weight, so theoretically (again) you get longer flight time. AGA HVLi battery can increase 10% in capacity than standard LiPo’s of the same size and weight.

Lastly, good quality HVLi has lower voltage sag on high throttle.

FPV Racing Outside Office for Fun - X-Racer X-1 (1 min 30 sec)


Something new from FPVModel.
EZlap timing system: https://www.fpvmodel.com/ezlap-timing-system_g1308.html

The EZlap timing system is a race management system that specially designed for both indoor and outdoor small scale drone racing. It allows 4 pilots to race at once.

The EZlap timing system comes with a master controller, 3 infrared receiver modules, 8 transmitters. The system is powered by a PC or laptop via a USB cable connecting to the USB port of master controller. It is easy to install, simply mount the master controller and receiver modules in the racing gate, install the transmitters in the racing drones, then install the free RCM Beginner software (can be downloaded at the bottom of this page) in your computer and connect with the provided USB cable, you and your friends will be able to start the racing just in a minute.

The master controller sends the signals that received from the infrared receiver modules to the computer after processing.
The infrared transmitter is 0.4g only, it will not increase any weight to the racing drone since it is so light in weight. It has 8 different address codes which are switchable via the 3-digit DIP switch. Start to send the address codes after powering on via USB.
The infrared receiver modules receive the address codes from the transmitters and send them to master controller.

Connection and Use
  • The master controller is powered by the USB

Hello. I was wondering if there is a good way to mount the new Runcam split. I noticed that if you put it in the frame you get propellers in the shot. Is there a better way? The frame I'm using is a QAV - XS

This is my review of the hbx ground crusher, otherwise known as the 12883P. There are a couple of different styles available for this car. First of all, there is a monster truck version, which I have. There is also a truggy and a buggy version of the same car, with different tires and body shells. Here is where I got mine from:

Here is a review video:

Hbx 12883P Rc Car Review (7 min 1 sec)


To start off, the car comes in a pretty small box. There are a few things included in the package. I will list them and then talk a bit about them.

-Users manuals

-Decal Sheet

-AC charger

-Rechargeable battery

-Radio Controller

-The car itself

First of all, there are two users manuals included. The first one is a simple sheet describing the different features of the transmitter. Then, there is a very thick manual dedicated to the car. This one is excellent, as it is written in good quality English. It also has a full parts listing in the back, although I do not know what the availability is like. There are quite a few blown up parts diagrams, which is always helpful for taking apart and reassembling the car.

The decal sheet is similar to what you might expect from a traxxas vehicle, or any other rc car. You can use the super sticky stickers to customize the car however you would like to. There are a bunch of them available, so you will not run out easily. They are colourful, so they add a nice contrast to the...Continue Reading

I recently put together an E-Flite Valiant 1.3m (BNF version ), and found a day with less than 10 mph winds to fly it myself. A couple weeks ago I had it flown by a Propmasters Club instructor to make sure I had the transmitter set up OK. I put some build notes, from the very quick build, on the Parkflyers forum. https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show...postcount=1758

I used a 2200 mAh Glacier 3S battery and pushed it up against the back of the battery compartment. The 6 ounce battery made the Valiant a bit nose heavy, but made little difference to flying. I could have used my 1600 mAH battery, since I didn't fly very much at high throttle.

The Valiant is completely stock, with some duct tape hinges on the front of the battery hatch to keep from losing it. I put the SAFE mode on a switch on my DX6e transmitter, and I flew my first flight with SAFE on. I set dual rates to 100% and 70%, with aileron and rudder on one switch and elevator on another. I used 100% with the SAFE on as the manual suggests. I took off with half flaps from a smooth asphalt runway into the wind and didn't need to use rudder. The Valiant took off in about 15 feet, and climbout was very reasonable. Turns were fairly slow, so I took up a bit more sky than I figured. Visibility at altitude was good because of the wing stripes. Getting the Valiant down from altitude was a little tricky. I landed it on the mowed grass in a corner of the field, with a soft nose over.

The only strange thing was the lack of sound from the big prop with the low kV motor. There was no sound feedback from throttle position, even on takeoff. I put the Valiant down on the down wind end of the runway, walked over to the pilot station, then after I started the motor and took off I didn't hear the motor at all.

All in all a decent first flight by a low time pilot. Thanks to SAFE. I'll stick to winds of 10 mph and less, though.

I finally decided on a new build. I was leaning towards a Balsa USA 1/4 Sopwith Pup, but I decided to build something sportier this go around. I've ordered a Great Planes Extra 300s 60 sized kit. I think this will be a great sport plane and the larger size will allow me to fly more often as it should be able to handle some wind! The build does not seem to be too difficult but I do plan on altering the rudder and elevator a little to get more authority out of them. Now to begin thinking about covering schemes!
