My wing is here from FastTech dot com ...
I put it on the scales and got 46 grams ( for the foam components ) , that leaves me some 54 grams to play with to get to my goal of 100 grams RTF
Just waiting on the 2.5g servos now and some small ( 1.5mm ) screws

Review (ip) of Eachine E010S PRO - 65mm 5.8G 40CH 800TVL Camera F3 Built-in OSD High Hold Mode RC Drone Quadcopter


This quad remained my on the Jaws. Too bad it cant go underwater



This cool design aldought brings great benefit for beginners because all electronic parts are well protected in canopy it makes life a little bit complicated (we are spoiled) to initially setup the quad because bind button for RX, CH/TX button and USB port are all hidden under canopy.
Good thing is that after initial setup there's no need to do that again because quad has OSD so most important BetaFlight settings are tunable via OSD.

I can reccomend this quad already to beginers because its great protection of el. components and antennas.




VTX antenna is hidden in shark tail ant RX antenna is laid horizontal "out of the box". When I opened the shark to adjust my CH/TX I put the RX antenna to upright. I believe it should be better that way.

I did a short hover and LOS test after setting in BF my modes and it flies great.
Flight video footage to come tomorrow so stay tuned.

I was involved in the power selection for the HK Avios Grand Tundra when Stuart Warne was still at the helm. Now that Stephen Neill has taken over he graciously sent me one for my personal use after I beat up a prototype model Stuart sent me last year. The proto is still in good flying shape, but kinda dented and dinged. Originally just an "albino", Stephen sent me a set of decals for it. I also converted it to clear windows which I will show how that is done after the pre-orders have reached the modelers. but until then I would like to discuss the inflight data I will be collecting on the model.

Batteries up, props down!


Finally got a GoPro Hero5 Session and have been playing with the iPhone apps lately. Just need to make some longer clips now. I've mainly been posting clips on my instagram www.instagram.com/archervr1
Here's a short 1 min clip I just posted on my YouTube, you can also see I'm flying a lot better than I was 7-8 months ago. Still using the 210 budget quad but in the process of building a floss 2 and a new freestyle rig using premium parts. Pics and vids to come on that one.

Yep Les Amis,
Selfie or not Selfie ... Voici un nouvel engin spécial selfie qui avait l'air prometteur sur le papier, le SG700, un appareil qui propose pas mal d'options sympas. Le positionnement optique fonctionne plutôt pas mal, pratique pour les prises de vue et selfie. Le maintien d'altitude par contre, est un peu aléatoire avec une légère brise alors qu'en indoor pas de soucis. La résolution d'image Photo/Vidéo reste moyenne malgré les 2M de pixels. Gros soucis par contre sur la reprise de stabilité après des accrobaties .En bref petit drone sympatique pour se faire la main grace à son assistance mais il ne faut pas trop lui en demander.

SG700 Selfie et positionnement optique Review Test Démo / De belles promesses ! (22 min 39 sec)


NOTATAZ : 14/20 Rapport qualité prix moyen !

Les + : Nombreuses Options de vols, Appli assez réussie, facile à piloter avec la radio, Positionnement Optique correct.
Les - : Perte de contrôle lors des Flips auto, résolution caméra moyenne et maintien d'altitude pas régulié.

My model boat room I think it’s a bit full haha
Posted by Jack Crossfire | Today @ 01:16 AM | 594 Views
If the price is based on 100 passengers, with only 40 staterooms, they're planning on people traveling in family units with some of those families having kids young enough to sleep in the same room. The actual price per room is $500,000.

This is might have been Elon's parent's organisation, but it's definitely not the mane social organisation today. Lions still insist the mane customer will be confirmed bachelors looking for the ultimate retirement home.

Most families today from baby boomers to generation X to millenials still have a single male breadwinner earning most of the money & a "partner" earning pinch money.

What's advertised as $200,000 per person is really $500,000 a man has to produce for a room, whether traveling alone or with 2 family members. There might be a way to split it with a room mate, but that still hits $250,000. Suspect that's the mane way most of us will go, but since we wouldn't have to sleep at the same time, there wouldn't a real need for each person to have an entire room.
