1. Wire 4 lines between each gate and the correct esc input.

2. Use a balanced plug and get 1s for FC. JST for four ESCs.

1. Change to ESC driver, and set dshot600

2. Chose a PID from WIKI

1. 拉四條線
2. 拉平衡頭電源

It takes close coordination between lead & chase pilots to make a smooth chase video. Thanks to Denny for flying very smoothly as flight lead. Looking forward to tightening up the formation next time!

I made a compact keil_v5 pack for command line.

1. Unzip and put keil_v5 in root.
2. Unzip NFE_2_16_18 and you can find a.bat

The batch processes need existing obj files so just downloaded from github can't be used because the obj folder is empty. I don't know how to fix this.

Tinting the Commander canopy with Tamiya Translucent Purple spray paint

A clubmember friend gave me a spare Commander Canopy to modify. I removed the clear plastic from the foam using an old credit card. The glue is extra grippy and left small holes in the foam but can easily be reglued using a Canopy glue like Formula 560 Canopy Glue. While the canopy was removed another clubmember mounted a $30 video camera on a piece of foam with double sided fiberglass rug tape. A piece of velcro was used to retain the camera. Video came out very nice with just a little nose showing and some prop blur. It would me nice to set the ESC prop brake so no windmilling prop blur would occur.

At home I scraped off the grippy canopy glue and used Frogtape to mask the inside of the canopy. Using two coats of Tamiya Color 10-12” away I got the amount of tint desired. The next canopy I try will be using the Rit clothing dye as I think this gives a more consistent tinting. However it will be difficult to protect the areas where no tinting is desired.
I will be using 20X 3M clear tape to secure the canopy to the foam.

I recieved this toy Quadcopter from my Dad as a late Christmas gift. It is not what i consider hobby class but it has decent performance for a beginner quad.

It even has a 'flip' function and supposedly some sort of camera system, though i prefer flying from 3rd Person at the moment.
I am impressed with these quadcopters' stability. We had a Blade Inductrix, which was great for pestering Cats, that was quite a bit smaller.
This one has brushed motors with a geared drive. It is loud and has a bit more 'presence' in the living room.

I can see why quadcopters are popular--they can be quite a bit more fun than i thought. I prefer airplanes over everything else--any day. But this one is fun in the house.

I flew this quadcopter up and through a stairwell, impressing my dad. He has not seen my 3D planes yet. I have an Eflite Viking 280, Parkzone Sukhoi SU29mm, & Eflite Ultimate2 that would likely leave him speechless

I am looking at some Blade helicopters and Quadcopters... they look fun and can be flown in a small space.
Atm, i admire the Torrent 110, 130S, and 230S. I am pretty sure i can pick up basic aerobatics fairly quick.

Nothing will replace my love of RC Model Airplanes, but these little helicopters look like fun on lazy days

Here is the battle hardened Stinger in T-45 scheme. Several patches/scrapes from the field landings, all electronics work so 100 bucks if you would like. I think the stock 6S outrunner with a lighter 5000mah lipo is the best setup but I have also flown this on 10S

Eachine Wizard TS215 - Review & Flight Testing - Excellent!! (16 min 59 sec)

👍 👍 👍 A great new Racer Drone from Eachine and Banggood. This one seems to have all the right parts... well mostly. All but the onboard DVR were high quality parts.
In this video, we take a look at all the components making up the TS215, a quick setup (removal of DVR & Betaflight settings), and some flight testing.

🔴RCgroups Thread: https://goo.gl/EPuCBG

⌘ Pros:
°Powerful/ Fast
°High quality components
°Great Handling/ Stable
°Feature rich
°Excellent VTX penetration
°Smart Audio - allows setting changes through radio/ goggles
°Use of 2mm hex head screws all around "even the screw holding the bell to the motor!"

⌘ Cons:
°DVR (Latency/ Lag or framedrope involved with DVR)
*Removing the DVR fixes the issue
