Today we feature Rodger Hecht's build of a John Morgan design...

This is a seldom seen North American Aviation FJ-1 Fury over Rabbit dry lake in Lucerne Valley, California !
North American FJ-1 Fury at Rabbit dry lake (6 min 22 sec)

This early US Navy jet directly led to the development of the FJ-2 Fury and the legendary F-86 Sabre jet of Korean War fame !

If you want to help me out, all I ask is that you open it in "YouTube" click the "HD 1080P" gear, and watch the video does help, trust me !

Wishing everyone all the best during the COVID madness...

I was asked by a customer to modify my F106 kit into a Dagger, I had to make new tail and side plate templates, move the cockpit back and shorten the spine, but the rest was identical, this one is slightly heavier due to the extra foam at 8.65 oz rtf, but still 27.5" long, 20" wingspan.

Here is a video of my Delta Dagger in flight, was a nice day , first flight which is the last in the video I misjudged my distance a bit and just caught the edge of the long grass...

Here are the two shown so you can see the differences.

Here is a video on the run times of two different drill battery sizes.

Brushless Rc With a 18v Drill Battery? (Part 3) (3 min 30 sec)

Honestly, I think I was hoping for a little bit better run times than that, but it's still not bad considering that I could probably run non stop with my four total batteries and two chargers. As stated in the video, the bigger battery seemed to do a little bit better on the take off (can put out more peak amps), but I had expected that. Again, overall the batteries did a fantastic job. Way better than I ever thought they would. I also think that I chose the absolute perfect motor for this application. Anyways, have a great day everyone!

Hello good people!

Was super lucky and acquired a super nice and Brand New (In-the-Box) Hangar9 F22 Raptor PTS. This is the Gray version and it came in record time all the way from White Rock, New Mexico via FEDEX Ground and came one day earlier (on a Saturday)!

This one will be Electric as well!

The A100 / TRAWO is no a "new" model name, but the camera itself went through some upgrades, while on the producer site it mentions [email protected], it now records [email protected] with EIS satbilization. In the product page the specs say that it uses a Hisilicon Hi3559 chiset and a Panasonic MN34120 image sensor. During my test I've observed an above average image quality, it has very good and clear focus, has a lot of details and the [email protected] works flawlessly and it's not using double frames. Also the stabilization is extremely good and smooth whit no jerking around and no annoying image warp effects.

Here is my initial video review, i will also add more video samples later

This past month was the 1 year anniversary since my first RC helicopter flight attempts. A couple flights have me thinking I must be learning something, because I'm able to do some maneuvers that almost look like inverted funnels, and my half-piro attempts don't always end in crashes (only sometimes).

I am working on making a crash reel with some featured crashes and descriptions of the model and the days, hours, and moments before the crash, along with my best analysis of the why and what and wherefores.

Here's 7 minutes of heaven on a beautiful spring day about a week ago with my orange M2. So much fun!

I picked up an E-flite 70mm F-16 from a friend that had a few pebbles take out the fan. Gave it the twin tractor swap, and it's now a whole new "jet" experience

HQprop T5x3 5 Thrust test (1 min 9 sec)

My little 1306 could only handle 15,000 rpm .
Motor was getting hot .
Going on BG the largest motor for this style of prop is a Aokfly BS1408 .. This motor might be able to turn 20,000 with this prop . (?)

We'll find out cos I ordered the motor .

helivsFMX found a strangely cheap Rock Racer "clone" of some sort for 92 bucks and I took a the website and it sure looks scammy. They also offer a SCX10II for 90 bucks. No-one seemed willing to take the plunge and I myself is straight up too poor right now to shell out for them, otherwise i'd totally take that bullet for the forum.

Anyway, helivs suggest a GoFundMe and I said I'd set one up and make a video if we reach the goal, so here it is: RCG buys suspicious vehicles together

If this works out, maybe we can buy suspicious stuff together again.

We have a 6 -axis multi rotor A8 from ART-TECH, how to choose the industry video+data+control transmission ? 5 improtant factors to choose it !
We test 5 products , I am glad to share some experences for you.

1. The distance: the distance is the basis of price . To the multi-rotor, 10-15km is best , becase of the flight time is 30-40mins.

2.The frequency: we need the 1.4G (1427MHz-1447MHz) . Finally, we choose one perfect products that OWN 800M+1.4G+2.4G all ,that's wonderful:D
You can set different frequency by yourself , WOW, i made it whice means 1=3 sets transmission. LOOK PICTURE 1-Meastro 51 is great!

3.The interface:This is base on your gimble camera interface: HDMI/NET/SDI/AV/UART/SBUS...

4.The price : about $1900--2100

5.The test data: the best distance is 16.9km, but the sales tell me noly 15km:p LOOK THE PICTURE 2

SO, we choose the Meastro 51, that is really great!
