Last year I tried to get my son interested in the rc hobby by making a couple of "cars" out of a sheet of dollartree foam with a motor and prop pushing it. He enjoyed driving it but couldn't get into the building part....computer games are way more fun according to him. Anyways just thought I'd post them and the video if it'll work.

Got the data all worked up on the Leopard .15 using 4S. Total flying wt. 45 3/4 ounces. 2800 4 S battery wt. 10 3/4 ounces. 12x 6E prop. Amps = 40, watts= 642, 97 ounces of thrust. With a 13x4E prop= Amps= 37 1/4, watts 538, thrust 102 ounces. 13 inch prop does present the problem of prop strikes on a rough field.

wow, our new products come, please just have a look and check it the power function

High-precision positioning: Many drone applications require higher accuracy than traditional GNSS offerings, such as drone mapping, agricultural surveying, and high accuracy takeoff and landing.
C-RTK is a Real Time Kinematics module for mass market launched by CUAV. The complete RTK system can be composed of two C-RTK modules (one for aircraft and one for base station)

Small body, big power

Integrating the RTK GPS (M8P) + GNSS system dual positioning module and a COMPASS geomagnetic compass in just 53MMX32MM volume greatly reduces the need for aircraft installation volume, increases reliability and greatly reduces hardware costs.

CNC aviation aluminum alloy shell

C-RTK uses a CNC formed aluminum alloy shell, in addition to reducing external electromagnetic interference, reliability and durability also have some improvement

Double-ended design

The use of TYPE-C interface design, clever use of port redundancy design, the aircraft end and ground end only need to insert different specific data line can be double-ended switching, convenient and rapid iteration, reduce operating costs

Centimeter level positioning

Run advanced differential algorithm, so that the positioning accuracy of centimeter level positioning accuracy.

Hey guys
I just want my doubt cleared
I'm making a RC airplane. I have used 4 brushless motors and I want them to run at the same speed. Can I use 1 ESC. if so please send the diagram on how to connect them with an Arduino.

Holly Smoke Batman !

Everything fits like it was laser cut .. ( Its crazy )

The 3.7g servos fit perfectly , I don't think you need to glue them , perfect tension fit .
The motor (?)

The motor is mounted on a round servo arm with two screws ...
So there is a round protruding mount for the servo , + two screw heads ...

At the back of the wings fuse there is a fiber mount . With a hole in the middle ... I drilled this out to 7mm to accommodate the servo mount ..
I then drilled two more holes for the screw heads ..
The motor fits so perfectly that it is held in place by tension .. You could pick up the fuse by the motor shake it and the motor will not come off .

The ESC

I cut a slot into the fuse to bury the ESC out of the way .
After test running the motor the ESC remained cool ( 8A full throttle - 12A ESC )
The only thing to warm up was the motor .. My guess would be 8A would be close to max with this motor .. ( I think its rated 10A continuous )
So thats where I am at the moment ( ATM ) .


Next I have to install the Rx , locate it in the fuse and bind it to a Tx .. ( Then test everything - set up servos ) ...

Waiting for ESC's ...
The 6A ESC was not going to cut it ...
So I ordered some 12A ESC's just in case ..
Funny thing , I was sure I had a 10A ESC ... ( I did , I found it in a box when looking for props ) ...

Oh well !
Motor is soldered directly to the ESC now ( yes I checked direction )
With the 5x4 prop it pulls 8Amp @ full throttle ( 2s ) ..
The thrust is monumental for such a small motor ( I was surprised )
I expect half throttle will fly this wing without problems ..

I did have to balance the prop ( 4000kv x 2s - lets call it 8v = A lot of RPM )
Next I will graft the ESC and motor into the air frame as well the servos and Rx .. Then bind and test ... If everything is ok I will glue up the wing ...

I am torn now , because an even smaller motor should fly this wing ...
I think a 4 or 5 amp combo would do the job as long as you don't pile on weight ...

HMDVR-HD 1080P HD DVR 90 Degree M12 Mini Camera AV Output Low Latency for FPV RC Drone

I was looking for a camera/dvr combination with high resolution that could also used with a a seperate vtx and came accross this one at Banggood. But there is not much information about it on the product page and I only found one or two reviews about it with not a lot of information. So I informed my contact at Banggood about the lack of information and offerred to review it. My contact agreed to send it to me. It shipped by Air Parcel Registered with China Post on February 8, 2018 and I recieved it on February 28, 2018. Not sure, but the Chinese New Year Holiday may have slowed down the shipment. It came in an anti static plastic bag well wrapped in foam. No damage to the camera or video recorder.

The mod's made to stiffen up the frame are noted on my prior posting, with the addition of replacing the rubber O rings with springs, ( found at the local ACE Hardware store ).
I used the DUBRO- 4- 1/2" Tundra tire to closely resemble a 1/6th scale of the Full Scale 29" wheel.
The completed gear, ready to mount as soon as the covering is on.

I wanted one of these since they came out, but just couldn't cut loose of the money. Found one for less than 1/2 price at a swap meet, so picked it up. The guy told me he had flown it once, ran out of battery and did some minor damage, which looked about right.

Checked it out closer when I got home, did some minor repair last night and test flew it today, will put it back to perfect later. I was a little concerned about overall weight, but the plane flew beautifully, very little trim needed, all controls, especially ailerons were very effective. Landed very slow with flaps and a little headwind. Overall very nice plane, will fly again tomorrow. I'm using Roaring Top 5500mah 45c which worked out perfect. Here is a quick picture, will have the video by tomorrow.
