iFlight Crystal HD is the most beautiful, Lumenier AXII HD has better Stubby antennas and TrueRC X-AIR DJI is the best, but also the largest DJI FPV antenna.

If you want the best reception for long-range quads, you should get two of the X-Air antennas.
Unfortunately, the antennas are very large and not suitable for everyday use. If you want to carry the goggles in your backpack, You would always have to unscrew the antennas. But the reception is great with the two X-Air antennas. The Lumenier HD and iFlight Crystal HD, on the other hand, are super practical. These antennas always stay on the DJI goggles, are noticeably better than the original DJI antennas and the price for the antennas is not too high.

Well, POOP ! Both of them flew, and both of them died, both due to loss of orientation and lack of altitude....seems like I'm going backwards.......I got 2 successful flights out of each of them....the third one did me in......let them get too far away, and against an overcast sky, well, what could go wrong?? lol...saved all the electrics, so I'm just out some foam and some time.......I've got plenty of both

Straight up pilot error......both birds were rather quick and let's say "responsive" to control inputs......like trying to fly an epileptic monkey on meth.......I just couldn't recover quick enough.

But to take some "positives" away from all of this....I learned a new covering technique, a new hollow body fuse cutting technique, and that a CG located at 25% of wing chord might be a little too far back for me to control on the first flights......ya' think..lol

My H9 30cc spitfire next to club members TopRC spitfire. I sure do like the appearance of his Spitfire. This is my second H9 spitfire. Mine flies nice and smooth and when landing it just sticks to runway. The TopRC spitfire is gas powered and has problems with engine getting hot.

I extended the firewall about 3 inches and still needed about 6 oz. lead bolted to firewall.

Below is a link to my review on the Diatone Roma F4 LR micro long range quadcopter.

https://www.quadifyrc.com/reviews/diatone-roma-f4-lr-review-and-diatones-attention-to-detail


In this review I cover:
  • Discussion of specs
  • A look at the frame design and build quality
  • Betaflight setup
  • Flight performance
  • Battery options and flight time
  • GPS performance
  • Nebula V2 cam vs Nebula Pro
  • Final comparison to other micro LR quads and conclusions

This is a text and picture review, not a video review, hope you find it useful

Another 8.7 mile drive with stuff came in with the same power consumption as an empty lunchbox: 237mAh/mile. The lunchboxes were pretty efficient, with their gearboxes & roll resistance.


The remote control revision ended up not compelling enough to use. The more compact design just became more natural over time.

Hello good people,

I just Love this hobby.

January 12th, I picked up one of these for a Cool $80 US Cash but, I had to drive almost to Tampa, Florida which is just under one and a half hour drive each way. I saw it over at Face-book Market.

Well, it was worth it, both the Cash and fuel cost.

The model was owned by someone who purchased it from the original owner and he decided not undergo an Electric Conversion which is exactly what I will be doing. The model was maintained at the garage floor and it was certainly flown using GLOW power and it smelled and the covering had this dull look because it was full of Fuel residue.

Came home and using the DAWN Power Wash Ultra it did the trick and the covering looks like new again.

The Right Wing assembly had some damage internally and initially before the purchase it looked like a simple rip but, looking into the Right wing at that location the rib is fractured which really is no big deal. However, just recently, someone posted a Right Wing assembly for this exact model and I jumped on it so, will soon have a nice Great Planes RV-4 (1.4 Size) with the eye candy effects and minimal repairs to be done.

Found an article here on RCG's:

Anybody have an extra Eflite Edge 540QQ Cowl?
Posted by old4570 | Yesterday @ 07:45 PM | 2,679 Views
Ok , looks like I have found an issue with the CG making the A160 a little touchy feely !

Looking inside the battery bay , there was a bump in the foam ( from the moulding ) ..
I got some steel wire , heated one end up ( red hot ) and melted away the bump / protrusion ..

Now the battery slips in further forward . But it's a real slop fit !
So I got some 3mm depron scrap and glued it to one side of the battery bay .
Now the battery is a non slop fit with just a small amount of friction grip .

And for the heck of it , a picture of my micro Rx and servos that replaced the flight control board .

A160 has been handled a lot - paint peeling ! Things needed fixing .....

XK A160 with more down thrust (7 min 43 sec)



I may have previously mentioned !
That I removed the motor+ mount and rotated it 180deg for more down thrust !

Because - When I applied power , the nose would lift and the A160 would climb seriously hard over 50% throttle ..
Up to 50% was ok but once I wanted more ( like 100% ) the A160 just lifted it's nose .

Rotating the motor mount seems to have seriously improved things . I did change my elevator setting causing the A160 to climb . I did put in some down trim , but looks like I have to go back where I was .. But never the less a serious improvement .

Having solved one issue , looks like CG might be next . It does hunt up and down a bit and drag it's beehive in turns ( signs of a rearward CG )
Oh well ! Not the end of the world ( like the death spiral ) . I will have to see if I can push / make room . for the battery further forward .

In the 1920s biplane "barnstorming" was going full tilt. A surplus of Standard J1s and Curtiss Jennys had flooded onto the civilian market after WWI and brought the concept of barnstorming with it. As the old surplus biplanes that were only intended for pilot and copilot tired out, there was a big demand for a biplane which seated two in the front cockpit. Throughout the 20s many new companies and models sprouted up to fill this void. Among them were the Travel Air, Waco 9 and 10, Alexander Eagle Rock, Swallow, Command Aire, and the Stearman C3. But in 1928 in Glendale, Brooklyn, New York built by Brunner-Winkle Aircraft Corp., there emerged a new type. The Bird Model A as it became known. With a handsome (and uncommon on civilian production airplanes) "tunnel cowling" housing the radiator and a wing design that neared a sesqui-plane design with most of the lifting area being on the top wing, the Bird was an attractive airplane to look at. Particularly for a Curtiss OX-5 V8 powered airplane, many of which had big forward facing radiators ruining their looks. The airplane was debuted at the Cleveland Air Races in 1929 to a warm reception. After a production run of 85 airplanes, near the end of 1929 a new model of Bird was announced. With the supply of surplus OX-5s running thin and air cooled radials taking precedence, a new power plant was in order. The Bird Model BK was unveiled with a Kinner K-5 radial 5 cylinder producing 100hp (10hp more than the OX-5)...Continue Reading
