Review of this neat little R/C Construction loader alongside the Hui Na R/C Excavator.

There can be no doubt that the Blade 180CFX is a bit less discussed since the Oxy2 helicopter came on the scene. I have an Oxy2, and I love it, but I still fly my 180CFXs because they fit so well in my front driveway. Although the Oxy2 is a much more stable, precise, and high-performance helicopter, the Oxy2 can get away or get too close much more quickly than the 180CFX. I think I will eventually switch all the way over to flying Oxy2s, but not yet--I still love the smaller size of the 180CFX.

One thing that always bothered me, however, is that I didn't have complete control over the way the 180CFX flies. I purchased my 180CFXs used, and so I never registered with Horizon Hobby, nor did I care to purchase extra cables just to update the 180's AR6335 firmware. And then, there was the notorious tail behavior--sometimes twitchy, or wagging, or just slushy. Sure, a lot of this tail behavior could be improved by updating the Blade FBL firmware, as well as upgrading to a Spektrum H3060 tail servo. Even then, however, the Blade FBL firmware offers limited control over the 180CFX's behavior.

I had my first experience with an MSH µBrain2 during building the Oxy2. A great feature of MSH receivers is that they offer free software that helps with imputing all the settings that control the helicopter's flight behavior. MSH even offers a Bluetooth Module that can connect the receiver with a phone! At first, the software seemed a bit daunting, if only because it provides...Continue Reading

I've just finished field testing the new full speed tx200 piggyback 25/200mW VTX with the HGLRC F428 Elf Camera.

To summarise the camera is a great mod that will really improve your FPV experience. I used the camera from the HGLRC XJB F428 Elf which performs very similarly to the foxeer micro and runcam micro as well.

The VTX was good but I needed to route to VBAT because of the electrical noise I got through the FC's 5v circuit. The upside of this is it reduces current draw on the FC 5v which can lessen the risk of receiver brown out especially when transmitting at 200mW. Having 200mW available is very good btw!

When you have to solder thin wire to a deans plug drill 1.5mm holes in the solder tag to improve solder and mechanical connection.

Fly safe.

I have scanned the Antic Bipe construction manual. It is too big to load here.

If you want it mailed to you just send me your email address.

Fly safe.

All BNF versions are currently on sale for only $169.99 Click me.

With the popularity of Drone Racing growing more and more by the day, manufacturers are hard at work to bring us the latest, and greatest features. FuriBee is no exception to this, and they have been steady releasing some awesome new products, including some very nice FPV quadcopters. One of their latest releases, the DarkMax 220 is turning the BNF quad world upside down.

The FuriBee DarkMax 220 is absolutely loaded with features! It starts with the new ARTOWER F4 Plus flight controller with SD card slot, integrated OSD, VTX, and current and voltage sensor. Next is a 4 in 1 BLHeli-S 30A DShot ESC, capable of handling up to 6S power. They also teamed up with DYS to bring us some excellent new SR2205 2550kv Race Edition motors. To make things even better they used the popular 960H CCD FPV camera for some of the best FPV image quality currently available. As if all this wasn't enough, they also include 2 sets of Gemfan Flash 5152 tri blade props. The end result is one heck of a bind and fly package, and all for only $169

I managed to get my DarkMax set up in Betaflight this afternoon, and got it out for its first flight. I am very impressed with this quad! It is fast, smooth, and agile. It actually surprised me how much power it has even on 3s. I can't wait to get some 4s and 5s flights in with it. I can only imagine what the speed, and power will be like when I hit these motors with more voltage.

If you're...Continue Reading

Breathe Some Life Into Your Old Quadcopter (3 min 50 sec)

Hello everyone welcome back.

In todays video I want to show you how you can breathe some life into a old poor performing quadcopter.

In this video I used the Eachine FB90 also know as the FatBee 90. The Eachine FB90 out of the box is not the greatest. It comes with a carbon fiber and plastic frame. The ducts themselves are too small and rub the 41mm 4 blade props. Flying the FB90 is nothing exciting. I originally found a frame that was really light. This was a 105mm frame sold by USmile. I liked the way it flew but the thinkess of the carbon worried me. I dont beleive it will do too well in crashes.

The new frame I used is called the QWinOut Smart Carbon Fiber 100. I used this frame with a BetaFPV flight controller and some 8mm motors. It was a lot of fun but I wanted something that was 2s. It was time to move the FB90 parts into this frame to see how it would perform. I'm impressed by how well it flies. I've crashed it a couple times and there was no noticeable damage. You will see a light crash at the end of this video.

Yes, even If I'm actually 43 years old, I've just ended the quadcopter High School: my first quad was a Cheerson CX-20, the best drone for learning components and settings. The best quadcopter also to learn how to troubleshoot problems.

And thanks to CX-20, I've started teaching and helping each others on how to upgrade/troubleshoot their respective arducpoter drone, by the launch of my Yuotube channel DRONELANDER.

Many video's are focused on Cheerson CX-20 but they can be used even on different quadcopter equiped with APM or PIXHAWK.

And this is my first and latest building: so proud of it and any time I see it flies, the only word that I can say is WOW!!!

MMCX connector,Power level Switchable FPV Transmitter support OSD configuring via betaflight flight control board, and it could stack with AKK F4

Yep, decided that it was time to add ailerons to my triplane. It’s been crashed so many times that it flys like crap, unless you want to only turn left.
I’m thinking of rebuilding the landing gear with some normal bracing and a plywood plate. It needs to be a little more forward of the CG and have some give to it.
Also, I think that pulling the top wing off and fixing the struts with better reenforcements will make for a smoother flight.

I have officially completed my first build, and I am so excited. My soldering is not the best but they are strong connections and no smoke when I plugged in the battery,LOL!!!
