Today I rounded up a bunch of my quadcopters and took them out for a flight test with the Jumper T12./This is such a fantastic transmitter to have,I brought out five quadcopters and only needed the one transmitter to use them all!Awesome

Check out my unboxing and first flight of the Virhuck T905F Drone,prices seem to vary on this depending on where you get it,I paid under $60 for it and think is just about a perfect price point.
More to co ame on this one so stay tuned ! is pretty good for a drone that has 5.8ghz fpv and a built in fpv monitor on the controller

So this started out as a nice smooth flight with my Walkera Rodeo 110 until that last loop when I got it caught in a tree!
Fortunately after a bit of tree climbing I was able to recover my Rodeo 110 and ready to fly again another day

Just a quick peak and system test of the Virhuck T905F. This looks like it should be a decent low cost fpv drone that uses 5.8ghz fpv!Full field test coming soon,stay tuned!

Liking this r/c a lot,this is kinda a re-brand of similar buggies that WL TOYS and JJRC have put out.I think this is a little better package than the others as it comes with a nice tool kit and some spare parts and the body is metal,kinda neat I think.
I will be posting a video review and some night drive stuff soon (I installed some lights on it) Nice little buggy

Getting a couple of my older but still top of my best quadcopters list ready to take out for a fly.Hmm I think of that I should do a video or something of my favorites of all time to date,got some older ones and some new ones,it would be an interesting comparison I think.Anyhow back to this evening flyers,I have my Walkera Rodeo 150 ready to go,Stiill loving this one,a decent fpv flyer in my opinion and really nice for los flying.
Also I have my XK 252 which is a really nice quadcopter,seems support for this one has faded sadly as it is a very capable machine.I like everything about this one but one thing,they really limited this quadcopter with the propriety battery it uses,really wish it used a. common battery as I find it becoming hard to find replacement batteries for it,at some point I assume I will be needing to modify it's battery setup.
Anyhow,I am off for some quality flying time ! Cheers!

Here is my full test flight and review of the new Eachine E010S Pro micro fpv quadcopter.
I gotta say this one is a blast to fly fpv indoors and also very fun for some outdoor fpv flying.The 5.8G 40CH 800TVL Camera supply a clear video signal with good range.Also has OSD which is useful for monitoring battery voltage. The Lemon F3 Flight Control is set up nice out of the box and is available in DSM2 Receiver Flysky Receiver Frsky Compatible Receiver configuration.

And here is my test flight and review video

Well i,just got this quad and was waiting for a chance to try it out,got home late,thought I would go for a night flight but blew it put it in a tree!Was not the best selling it to fly at night and the lights on this quad are not really bright as well.I should be able to get it back in the daylight,maybe it will rain before then and this will get a good waterproof test test as well .Looking for a bright side here.

Been going back through some of my older quadcopters and getting in some flights on them.I guess I could call this my "keeper" series.Some of these may not be available anymore which is unfortunate as manufacturers are moving so fast to pump out new stuff or in this quadcopters case the company may be gone now.Fortunately this kind of a universal quadcopter which parts should be easy to find as it is basically a Eachine Racer 250.I plan on giving this basher a tune up and keep it air worthy as long as possible !
