Halloa people

another quadcopter from Diatone! Happy days! Why? Well.. I think most of us were pretty impressed by last years Crusader GT2 from Diatone.. So I couldn't wait to get my hands on this new TyrantS

I'll do several video's on this quadcopter.. In most cases I included a short test-flight in the first overview-video.. In this case I wanted to go into a bit more detail in my 'Show & Tell'.. So flight video's will come up After this one..

Halloa people

a short tool-tip video this time Most of us do some soldering now & again I think? I have never really liked to, and that was partly due to the 'helping hands' not really helping out to much..

And well.. I keep a close eye on several sales sites for new gadgets.. A few weeks ago this Realacc octopus
popped up Realacc Strange Third Hand

Yep.. that looks a bit Weird at first :P

But:

Hi there RC people

It can be a lot of fun to buy / order up a ready made RC, and go out & fly / drive it right away On the other hand great satisfaction can be found in selecting all components yourself and then build the craft
This allso gives you more insight into how things really work (and how they do Not work :P)

The objective in this project is to build a light / nimble FPV quadcopter. It is allso a bit of an experiment, so who knows.. it might not work out right away. That is O.K. though! As long as we learn something

This series will be quite a nr. of video's and I'll try to put as much info into the individual video's as possible. This allso means the project won't be ready in just a few days as well offcourse

Let's start the project with an overview of the components I've selected for it
