I have spent half the day window shopping ( internet ) and my brain is ready to explode !

I did see a few interesting things , but with minimum orders around 500 to 1000 pieces ( Not dropping $2500 USD on a foam model )

I would like to see a distributor taking on a larger range of models , be nice ..

The other problem is the Ozzi banana ($) , it only worth a little more than half a banana ..

So everything costs more !

I will admit I have a few models to fly , but the weather is not playing nice !

Plus , the low iQ of some from the land of Oz is worrying . Is social distancing really as difficult as rocket science ? ( Apparently )

This is GBLynden's E-flite UMX Turbo Timber Flight Review In Strong Wind With Bonus Footage.

GBLynden's E-flite UMX Turbo Timber Flight Review In Strong Wind With Bonus Footage (3 min 33 sec)

Here are my Review Notes for this E-flite UM Turbo Timber:

- Even with I prop I bent without knowing it before the maiden, it still flew really well!
- Wheel plastic piece update over the first E-flite UMX Timber
- It has a 3-bladed prop like the E-flite UMX Cirrus
- A higher 3400kv brushless motor comes with it for more power
- The plane can fly with 550’s as seen in some of my videos.
- Its lights all over the plane are awesome!
- The new chipset they use in this Timber UM allows for telemetry, just not the new advanced Smart Telemetry!

- Longer nose compared to the original UMX Timber.
- Shorter flight times compared to the Ultra Micro Timber.

The front yard was right on the verge of becoming somewhat solid...before this latest "Gully Washer" rolled through and returned it to a near-marsh condition, so no circle-turning gonna happen out there.

Didn't feel like working on any projects, and couldn't spray paint in the liquid air, so decided it was time to turn some fuel to noise, and jam it all together on Movie Maker.

I promise that SOMETHING will actually fly at some point, and I'll video it!

Hey Guys,

I put the Extreme Vanquish MKII together and came away very impressed with the quality of this ARF. It's really very good:

Need to make little adjustments and should be good to test when I finish the build. Don't want to un-settle my other K110.

It have the k123 swashplate converted to 3mm from 2.5mm and the washout arms from the k130 - a bit long, but ok I guess.

I’ll post this again in classifieds. I’m looking for Traxxas Parts. I’m giving my 4-Tec new life and the carbon fiber upgrade. I can’t find the aluminum posts for the bell crank anywhere. Any advice is helpful.

Part number: Traxxas 4321x

Any hobby stores with vintage parts bins would help too.

Halloa people

Time for a side-by-side comparison this time   
on paper the Foxeer Predator 4 & Runcam Racer 3 are very both very similar & capable Racing FPV camera's..
To this I should add that I generally very much prefer the Racer 2 & 3 from Runcam over other camera's.. BUT I am ready to be proven wrong!

I really like these Micro EPP Planes because they are so durable and easy to fly with Gyro Stabilization.
I also like the fact that they have an Expert or Manual Mode setting to really have Fun!
Let's take a look at the Features and then get it into the air and see how it performs.
We'll evaluate the stock setup can see if any adjustments are necessary.

Yep Les Amis,
De mieux en mieux !!! Encore une excellente surprise avec cette nouvelle mise à jour Flysky pour la NIRVANA NV-14 ! En effet, Underground FPV nous a un peu abandonné sur ce coup là mais Flysky continu à améliorer son produit, donc si vous avez fait comme moi et commandé votre Nirvana en Flysky, voici une MAJ qui va vous faciliter la vie et vous occuper en cette période de confinement. Décidément une excellente radio, critiquée dès sa sortie par beaucoup mais très largement adoptée depuis par de nombreux pilotes ! Pour le moment ma radio préférée vous le savez ...

Yep Les Amis,
Une Bugatti volante ?!?! lol . Comme je vous en avais parlé dans ma vidéo du Tinyhawk II Race, voici le HGLRC VEYRON 3 . Un Cinewhoop plutôt efficace dès la sortie de la boite. En effet, une fois bindé et avec un minimum de préparations sur betaflight, il est opérationnel ! Pas de mauvaise surprise donc et au contraire très agréablement surpris par le travail fourni par HGLRC, un appareil de bonne qualité et surtout un excellent support sur le site internet. Non seulement on pourra trouver toutes les pièces détachées mais on y trouve également une notice complète sur l'engin et ses réglages fondamentaux ! En bref, même s'il n'est pas le moins cher des cinéwhoop actuels, il est performant et très rassurant ... Affaire à suivre ... Bon Film à Tous et Merci de votre soutien .

HGLRC VEYRON 3 - Review Test Démo - Cinewhoop léger et efficace (27 min 25 sec)

NOTATAZ : 18/20 Une bonne surprise .

Niveau : Débutants et Confirmés
Les + : Réactif, Précis, Très stable, Autonomie correcte, Doux et puissant, Très bonne qualité d'image, VTX performant .
Les - : Pas le moins cher des cinewhoop, A voir sur d'autres tests ...

For those who have asked about my previous day job (and nights, and weekends..), the short answer is Electronics. A slightly longer answer: A little bit of everything. And as to some of the details?:

From age 13 I was tinkering with Electronic Experimenter kits, then put together my first RC Tx and Rx kits at 15.. and other related gizmos thru HS. Joining the Army for 4 years in 1970 (yeah, just shoot me..), I got a year of good electronics school in the ASA at Devens. Theory thru transmitters, receivers, antenna systems, and specifically DF, ECM, and even worked avionics during half of my year in Vietnam. When I got out, I worked as a Field Engineer repairing and installing information systems (1st Electronic Store Information System in Indiana).. then the 1st Automated Teller terminals in Indiana. Got my 2nd class FCC and started a company to do CB repairs, followed by 2-way, and another 2 years of avionics, and some cool High-Energy Physics work at Fermi-Lab. I worked at the 2nd oldest PC store in the US, where we stuffed and soldered the components, and repaired VERY EARLY personal computers. One of mine so advanced to have a 5MB hard drive!! (Yeah, I know, funny huh!) In 1982 I started my consulting business, and designed a full duplex S-100 communication board, to link my customer as the 1st to use direct computer billing to Blue Cross/Blue Shield. Helped another company sell millions in stock, with my 6 prototype battery powered CMOS smart terminals...Continue Reading
