Having gotten my new quadcopter working, I wanted to fly it. Too bad in my cold inhospitable state it won’t be spring for a couple more months. So I decided to go to my little brothers basketball practice to see how this thing flies. I started in horizon mode and hated it. I switched over to angle mode and found it to be fun I noticed this small space. I switched to Acro to try to do a flip. One thing is I forgot you are supposed to let off the throttle. What happened is my quadcopter went upside down full throttle into the gym court. My friends 3D printed fpv camera mount exploded, and the rear 2 motors are stuck. I am going to see if any the tips I have seen online work. (pinching the sides, top, etc.) This is very sad and infuriating for me.

I have been working in IT for 40 years and decided to upgrade my firmware on my system. Spent time looking at many videos on how to upgrade. Just a piece of advice don’t do this it’s a crap shoot. You have a 50% chance of complete disaster. I followed the instructions and my entire system was wiped out. It’s as if I just got a new system, all my settings are gone. I did what every good IT person does I backed up my system before upgrading. After the disaster upgrade the system would not allow me to restore my models. I have 10 planes that I have to re-program. It’s not worth the risk

DO NOT UPDATE YOUR FIRMWARE

Hi Guys,

after the crash of my B727-100 (EDF 64
Maiden Crash (1 min 33 sec)
)
I said "never again in this size" . But I didn't say "never again a B727"
This time I build it in edf30 size. The main parts are finished. Now I am thinking what I should use, edf30 or a pusher ?
I know this depends on the RTFW . In the moment I could estimate it ruff more or less.

I started out with "entry-level" drones that typically are under $75 to $100 with brushed motors... It was a revelation moving up to a brushless model, but now I m going back to a brushed model with the Holy Stone HS300.

I d looked at the HS100 largely due to it's GPS capabilities and it's "follow me" function. But thought the HS300 fit my budget for now, it has a 1080p camera and looks to be running the same motors, so any investment in spare parts should make the upgrade a little more cost effective.

Straight out of the box not a single issue... It flew nice n smooth... Don't judge the cam too harshly as all there is to see is mud, ice and snow right now,.. I ll give the props a quick balance too before it fly's again as the video has a pronounced jello roll going on.

Holy Stone HS 300 First Flight Feb 22 2018 (2 min 23 sec)


In the course of reading up on the HS100 and HS300, I found a wealth of information on the Promark GPS Shadow, as it's a screw for screw mirror of the HS100 with the only notable difference being complaints about (Promark's) support and spare parts availability.

I m indifferent to who the actual manufacturer is but if YouTube forums and hack/mod websites are any indication Promark has a larger market share since getting on to Walmart shelves this past Xmas.

Has anyone found or noticed a similar scenario between the HS300 and model xx ??? I saw some speculation that it was an upscale Syma X8 clone, but haven't looked at the various model to see which one.,.

Any thoughts feel free to post below or send a link to an existing thread

There seems to be some interest in the Tiny Whoov hovercraft at the moment.

Which got me thinking of a very simple hovercraft that can fly.

Hi People,

I finally made it up to the hill for some flying and to my surprise DJ was there! We had a good time flying and catching up. Here's a few shots of his awesome plane, this plane just loves to have it's picture taken. It's one of the easiest planes to photograph IMO I also attached a few Eagle pics I took before I got to the hill at the eagles nest, the mom took off shortly after I arrived and hit a thermal almost instantly and started soaring and the baby was watching her from the nest, I could see it looking up at her with the binoculars, great stuff, Life is Good!

Yep Les Amis,

Quand ça veut pas ... Lol ! GPS en panne, Axe cassé, pluie etc ... Voici aujourd'hui la BISON V2 (nouvelle édition) de chez VKAR RACING . Un bolide interressant, puissant et collé à la route ! Son empatement énorme pour une 1/10, lui confère une tenue de route impeccable et ses amortisseurs bain d'huile font un super travail sur tous types de revêtements . Off road, Sauts, Bitume, ce truggy passe vraiment partout ! Si vous cherchez un engin de ouf à pas trop cher, voilà ce qu'il vous faut. Les pièces détachées sont faciles à trouver et très peu chères. En bref, un très bon investissement mais rapelez-vous, c'est du modélisme et vous devrez forcément mettre le nez dedans, que ce soit pour l'entretien l'upgrade ou les réparations .

N' hésitez pas à laisser en commentaires, vos remarques sur la VIDÉO ou le sujet ... et si vous avez apprécié le montage, le contenu ou le Crash Test (involontaire) ! LOL... LIKEZ svp.

Got the new prop for the Leopard .15 Tundra. Also, put the rear struts on the stabilizer as I noticed flutter when you romp on it!

Hi guys! Has been awhile since I posted but im going to make it a goal too start posting weekly for you. It has not been from lack of fpv but more so putting more time into my builds and tuning them. I had been flying a build that had nothing too be desired and it was time for a change. I decided too build up a couple new 5 inch quads for my 2018 flying season and add a new gopro as well for much higher quality footage. The build list here:

-Martian 2 5 inch frame
-Raceday Quads/Josh Bardwell f4 flight controller
-Spedix 25a d shot escs
-Raceday Quads 2205 2450kv motors
-Racekraft 5040 tri blades
-xm+ receiver
-akk x1 vtx with aomway cloverleaf
-Rotor Riot Swift 2 camera
-Gopro session with 3d printed mount

Overall flying this new build really opened my eyes too what a good build should feel like vs a low quality build. Even with a good tune sometimes a bad build is just gonna fly bad, although I know some people have good luck with cheaper products, its just not for me so I went with quality.

I also made sure to post a raw clip for you guys on the channel so you can truly see what I see here:

The stick feel is amazing and it made my skill level feel as if everything I was doing was easy compared too before. Let me know what you think!!

Hi folks!
In the last few weeks I was trying to make my idea become real. The idea was a small glass fuse, geodetic wing DLG glider. I was just curious about those gypsum moulds. Would it work? There was only one way to see it. After I decided to go this way things happened quickly. I made an MDF plug, separated the halves, and with a help from my dad we casted both moulds and it worked (almost). Gypsium have this awful shrink characeristic. It helps with pulling the plugs out of form but it also changes the overall shape of the fuselage (halves are more less the same because of similar shrinkage on identical shapes).
Will keep you up to date!
