I've got the geprc mark2 bnf and only flown about five packs (all together not one flight period), and all the sudden my video feed has gotten really dark in the shadows and the colors are grainy and off, getting a rainbow of colors, and after a few minutes the video goes completely dark. I've tried contacting geprc and haven't heard back yet. Just looking for any answers. It's using the f4 span tower fc/vtx in one.

Damage to intake valve seal on an FA-50 'type ii head' as i call it. Using OS F plug.
Both valves somehow hit piston. Dunno why, am not original owner. Not the engine's fault.

Brand new Saito valves, it's the head seal. A new glow plug seemed to help a lot. But it would not idle low without dying. I would start at half-throttle or a tad more. Difficult to start when warmed up well--a lot of priming and wasted fuel (as it drips out of carb) from too many tries yet no fire.

If you never get a fire, or pop, even when cold, check glow ignitor battery.
Compression feels low; comes up a bit when primed but low overall. Sometimes erratic power at mid or lower throttle--especially with old plug.

I ran it pretty good at mid to high throttle using a 13x4 Xoar. No improvement. I want to take another look at that head seal. Not sure if its brass insert or just the newer (cheaper) plated aluminum head.

The head on mine is 'kinda rare' too as it's a 'newer FA-56(A) style.' Now, some of the early FA-56's had the original-style FA-50 head
The rest of the engine is similar to Saito's small 4-strokes. It would make a good parts engine for FA-50 thru FA-62(A). The .56 and .62 use a wider piston but otherwise are similar.

I think i'll keep this engine for parts, afterall.

All great powerful thumpers. i say that with experience bench-running them. I easily get 10,050 rpm on my other classic FA-50 with Xoar 12x6 wood propeller (on the bench). Excellent transition, control, and idle.

I believe the same-weight FA-62 can get over 9,000 rpm using a 13x6! These small Saitos are some of my favorite engines (adding to the fact they can be used in small affordable .40-size air frames).

10,000+ rpm holy !

I recently crashed my plane into a tree and it was still working (stuck in the tree) I retrieved it the following day (today) and I can’t get it to power up, I assumed the battery died and charged it for the 30 minutes until the charger showed no red led, then I plugged in the battery to the plane and it will not power up whatsoever, I’ve checked the main wires as far I can tell they all seem to be in order any help would be greatly appreciated

I recently bought a 13x6 two blade prop for my eflite turbo timber 1.5m, and am curious what others who've done this conversion are using for spinners? I'm not sure what will fit the longer collet on this plane.

Happy Weeokend! We hope your week starts out well.
We did a short Flight WITHOUT RC Transmitter and Datalink, only use 4G LTE to control our Fixed Wing.
And the result are very good, feels like we were a bird .

A few videos ago, we asked the question which frame should we use to build our 3-Inch Micro FPV Quadcopter, the FlexRC Ascent 3 HD or the HGLRC Arrow 3 Hybrid. At that time "The People's Choice" was the FlexRC Ascent 3 HD and it has turned out to be my favorite flyer-Thank You!

Now, we build out the other 3 inch drone frame, the HGLRC Arrow 3 Hybrid. Why is it a “hybrid?” The front arms are a stretched-X type (narrower) and the rear arms are a “normal-X” type (standard). Theoretically, this "hybrid configuration" should create more stability on the pitch axis and enable smoother and tighter cornering around turns (like on rails!). FPV FlightClub has used this hybrid configuration in their latest racing frames the 5" Proton-R and Neutron-R. One of the (if not, THE) best FPV Race Pilots in the world, Captainvanover, is running this hybrid setup starting this race season!

We complete our Hybrid 3 Inch Drone Build with our own custom components (not the ones which come with the BNF version of this HGLRC Arrow 3 Quad). In the video, we show a complete list of the components we use along with each of their weights, the overall dry weight of the build and the All-Up Weight along with the Thrust-to-Weight Ratio of this build in comparison with that of the FlexRC Ascent 3 HD. Guess which one wins that contest! What do you think of this Hybrid configuration? Also, the 2nd of 3 “Keywords” is revealed to unlock the Mystery of our upcoming announcement. Take a Guess for your chance to Win!

Amazing SD Raw Footage 😲😲 (Apologies for the swearing)
Test of light handling, colour range and bitrate with the Caddx after sunset.

Caddx Ratel 🐼 Modified vs Stock FPV Footage - Caddx Tarsier not required, cheap Topsky DVR is!! (2 min 33 sec)


I think the Caddx Ratel coupled with a Turtle (if you already have one) may beat buying a new Tarsier. No HD footage for a change but the image captured from the goggles is good enough in low light.

This was my first day flying with the Ratel Starlight camera and I got stuck in a tree with my first lipo. After 5 hours I managed to get it back with some rope and a stick but I just about found the energy to fly a couple of lipos after sunset and before total darkness. Great to have a dedicated FPV Camera especially as I've been flying a lot with the Caddx Turtle lately. it makes such a difference to be able to see in low light and have no latency issues!

Personally , I feel the stock footage is great for visibility in the shadows and makes the early evening feel like daytime; great for Golden Hour flights. Amazingly the footage from my old TopSky Prime 1S Goggles is really good and better than the image produced by my trusty VRD2-Pro Goggles (Topsky sent me a new board to rectify the receiver issue).

Yep Les Amis,
Dans la famille Wizard, je demande ... Le petit fils du X220 ! lol . Voici aujourd'hui le test sur le Eachine Wizard X140HV . Une "Torpillette" en 3 pouces qui accepte les batteries 6S !!! J'ai commencé avec une 4S par sécurité, j'était satisfais mais pas du tout impressionné .. Par contre, quand j'ai branché une 6S, là, j'ai été un peu surpris, excité et effrayé ! mdr ... C'était pour moi la première fois que je testais un si petit engin avec autant de " Patate " ! La conception est bonne, les éléments utilisés sont très corrects pour son prix mais par contre, je ne donne pas cher de ses bras en cas de chocs un peu rudes ! Je trouve que le carbone n'est pas de très bonne facture, donc s'il y aura un truc à changer sur cette bombinette volante, ce sera ça . Bon Film à Tous ...

Eachine Wizard X140HV un 3 pouces en 6S - Review Test Démo - ça Couine ! (30 min 41 sec)


NOTATAZ : 17/20 "Lourdeau" mes Propre !

Niveau : Débutants et Confirmés
Les + : Puissant et souple, Réactif, bonne autonomie (conso faible ), Stable, Bonne qualité d'image .
