What can I say?The Vkar Bison is my current favorite r/c ground vehicle.It is fast with the stock powerful brushless motor, 3s lipo battery and if you are running the 120 amp esc version like mine it will handle a 4s battery and be even more wild!
Is it perfect?no but you bash anything hard enough it wil break .
Dollars for fun and with a huge following and parts easy to find the VKAR Bison is a fantastic R/C

Here is some of the fun I had with it

I recently received this Furbee F90 fpv quadcopter from Gearbest to review ,unfortunately I can not get it to connect to Betaflight ,that being said I am unable to arm the motors to fly this quadcopter as it is necessary to set up this in the Betaflight configurator.
I will be sending this inquary to Gearbest in hope to find a solution.

So winter has been in full affect in my area, and been stuck indoors for my r/c fun for a bit .I installed a plate on the bottom of my Vkar Bison for added strength,apparently they now come with one installed now so that's good for new buyer's of the Bison,wish I waited a month on my purchase ,would have saved a few dollars .Anyhow waiting for things to get above 0 degrees outside .Till then inside flying for me

Here is a nice little fpv quadcopter ,the Eachine E013./This is basically a E010 that is built up with better motors and a nice all in one fpv camera installed..This is quadcopter is best suited for indoor flying but on a calm day like I had here it does well outside also..

Have a look at my flight here

I have had many runs since this video was recorded a couple weeks ago meant to post this sooner,better late than never lol.l

I also confimed that this is the 120 amp esc and here is a link to more info on this esc as it is not the esc which is marked on the Bison packaging box.https://www.hobbytown.com/ezrun-max10...

And here is the video of my first drive

Here is a really cool little r/'c truck I have been checking out,this is the GP Toys s608 Green Thunder.The Green Thunder is a 1:24 scale 4x4 brushed motor buggy.This little thing has a lot to offer such as near hobby grade build quality,independent suspension and runs on 2 3.7v 800mah LI Ion batteries.Did I mention this is a fast little thing?

Have a look at my test run here

Yay!My Vkar Bison is here at last I have had a couple runs on it so far and really like it.The truggy itself is great,I do have some minor complaints to the seller mostly it appears to be an 80amp version when I had ordered a hobbywing 120 esc vesrion,kinda need to research it more as the box it came in indicates two versions now,the bison with a 60 amp esc and the bison extreme which comes with a 80 amp esc and neither check box is indicated on my package.I also have a different controller than the one I have seen in reviews as there is no lcd screen on mine ,this may be a good thing as I have heard previous models have issues with the stock tx/rx and I have had no problems thus far.

More to come from me on this Bison for sure ,I will say I am really enjoying it so far ,here is a highlight video of some run time I have had with it

So I picked a really windy day to try the Attop A1 for a outside test flight but the little quadcopter held it's own despite the wind gusts,this is a really nice flyer,it also has a 180 degree flip function so it can fly upside down.Also the A1 comes with a nice large controller for more flight control accuracy.
The red version I bought is no longer available at Gearbest.com but they still have it available in blue.

You can get the Attop A1 here https://www.gearbest.com/rc-quadcopt...&lkid=11715892

I know this quadcopter has been out for a while but I still find it is my best camera bird so here is another flight with my Hubsan H501S ,went a bit higher and flew a bit toward the river for better views.Very happy with the Hubsan H501S,in my opinion it is the best gps quadcopter available in its price range,thinking I might get a second one with the pro edition transmitter as well

Hope you all enjoy my video

Here I have put a CM275T mini AIO 5.8ghz FPV camera on top of my MJX X708 Cyclone This basic fpv setup works excellent and the MJX Cyclone flew perfectly for a very enjoyable FPV flight experience.

Update,Gearbest confirmed,1-2 days to wait,so OK please do ship then

Been hoping to get a run on the VKAR Bison out but Gearbest has seems to be dragging it's feet on shipping mine,been on packed status for over a week.What is the hold up Gearbest,you have done good for me for a while now and now this is my most expensive single purchase and it has sat for almost 2 weeks now with no shipped status,.Is Gearbest moving backward with things as far as customer service?I am worried as I thought they had been gaining customer support.Three products on order at the moment and none have arrived in almost a month now.COME ON GEARBEST ,YOU WERE DOING GOOD
