Every once in a while we spot our motors in magazines or on TV. This Honda spot caught the attention of many Avroto fans. That's our 3520 flying what looks to be a custom quad made as a prop for the spot.

There is a sensitivity setting for the Hobby Eagle A3 super II. It seems to work best set for "low".

Hey guys, I'm sharing this post as a preview of a new wifi FPV quadcopter on Hobbywow, called the UDI i350HW. Check it out here:

http://www.hobbywow.com/en-udi-i350h...tf-p242579.htm

Here are what it brings to the table:

- Standard 6 axis gyro stabilization and 4 channel controls. It also has altitude hold, which should make this a decent FPV flier. The altitude hold is always on, however, so you wouldn't be able to get very sporty with this quadcopter. The built in barometer should also help in stabilizing the quadcopter, so the video quality should be decent.

- This drone also has one key takeoff and landing. The former will help beginners get started without worrying about altitude control at all, while the later will help maintain the motors, as they will shut off automatically on landing, preventing the propellers from getting caught in grass and overheating the motor. If you feel like you are about to crash, or if you do crash, then there is an emergency stop button that will kill the motors right away, to prevent propeller or motor damage.

- It's physical features are nice and convenient. It is big enough to be able to handle moderate winds outside, especially in high rates, but at the same time, you should be able to fly it inside without risking damage to anything from bumping into things, especially if you are a decent pilot. It is extremely lightweight, so in the case of a crash, even if it falls 50 feet to the grass, it should be able to survive it...Continue Reading

A while back I had an idea, a real lightbulb moment, regarding the KF-Airfoil, and finally I have a way to communicate it visually.

I had been interested in the KF-Airfoil for a while and when I came across the “Voyager” by Viking60 https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show...&postcount=237
with its inward tapering KF-Step, it hit me that the faster propwash would not only pull the vortex inwards towards the wing root but also increase the speed / RPM of the vortex and increase the vacuum of the vortex. This is for a KF-Step that is at an angle to the primary airflow. I envisioned it as a rope-shaped vortex that curled under and at an angle. Here are a few still-photos of what I envisioned and a brief video that successfully shows airflow going at an angle instead of simply downwind. It looks convincing at 20 degrees, later I might go back and see how good it looks at 5, 10, 15 degrees.

Thanks for reading
JD

Cool “Visual-Aid”!

DJI Mavic Selfie Drone - LEAKED IMAGES & SPECS

Sources from the Verge and Heliguy say that DJI is slated to release the MAVIC "Selfie Drone" in a New York City presentation. This sub 1.5lb drone is sporting GPS, 4K Camera, 2 Axis Gimbal, and more. Check out the initial specs and images released today. New releases also coming in September: Yuneec Breeze, and GoPro Karma Drone. Fall 2016 seems like the rise of the "selfie drone" where 4K drones gets smaller, foldable, and more portable ...

DJI Mavic Selfie Drone - LEAKED FIRST LOOK & SPECS (3 min 8 sec)

fuse molds done. My first molds made with a plug. There are issues, but not bad for a first attempt. And they are usable. So I will continue on and make a fuse for the wing and tail I have and get it together to get her in the air.

Hey guys, this is my preview of the Kai Deng K70F FPV quadcopter. Right now, it is available on Hobbywow. For more information, check out the link:

http://www.hobbywow.com/en-kai-deng-...hz-p240216.htm

To start off, I'll list it's main selling points. Here they are:

- Altitude hold is included on this bird. Being an FPV quadcopter, the barometer to maintain altitude should be very useful, and it should help the quadcopter get better video stability. Altitude hold is also a big help for beginners, as they can learn how to control pitch and yaw without additionally being responsible for adjusting the throttle. The one drawback is that altitude hold can not be turned off, which restricts how sporty you can get while flying.

- Headless mode and one key return are both included. Although a lot of quadcopters have these modes, many of them do not work well. I guess we will see about that later. For beginners, I recommend only using headless mode at the beginning stages of learning how to fly, so you do not become dependent on it. The one key return will likely not be very accurate, since this is not a GPS drone. However, one key return and headless mode are included, if you wish to utilize them.

- There are quite a few LED lights in each arm, compared to most quads only having one on each arm. The multitude of LED lights should make this a good night flier as well as a bird that is easily identifiable when it is in low battery mode. The lights also make it look...Continue Reading

So I got tired of walking down the street with quadcopter in one hand and radio in the other so came up with this. It's a regular backpack stocked with spare batteries, ESCs, motors, props, RXs, and just about any small tool I might need to swap any of those out. Also battery logbook, dollar store mini raincoat, hat, glasses, water bottle, and couple candy bars in case I need a pick-me-up.

The key to success here was a small quick release nylon belt which loops through the backpack handle and holds up to three or so quads. Costs a buck or two on Ebay and well worth it.

This is one of my heats at the Australian International Drone Championships, it's not my fastest heat, but it's probably my smoothest heat so far.
