Hi Guys,

after the crash of my B727-100 (EDF 64
Maiden Crash (1 min 33 sec)
I said "never again in this size" . But I didn't say "never again a B727"
This time I build it in edf30 size. The main parts are finished. Now I am thinking what I should use, edf30 or a pusher ?
I know this depends on the RTFW . In the moment I could estimate it ruff more or less.

I started out with "entry-level" drones that typically are under $75 to $100 with brushed motors... It was a revelation moving up to a brushless model, but now I m going back to a brushed model with the Holy Stone HS300.

I d looked at the HS100 largely due to it's GPS capabilities and it's "follow me" function. But thought the HS300 fit my budget for now, it has a 1080p camera and looks to be running the same motors, so any investment in spare parts should make the upgrade a little more cost effective.

Straight out of the box not a single issue... It flew nice n smooth... Don't judge the cam too harshly as all there is to see is mud, ice and snow right now,.. I ll give the props a quick balance too before it fly's again as the video has a pronounced jello roll going on.

In the course of reading up on the HS100 and HS300, I found a wealth of information on the Promark GPS Shadow, as it's a screw for screw mirror of the HS100 with the only notable difference being complaints about (Promark's) support and spare parts availability.

I m indifferent to who the actual manufacturer is but if YouTube forums and hack/mod websites are any indication Promark has a larger market share since getting on to Walmart shelves this past Xmas.

Has anyone found or noticed a similar scenario between the HS300 and model xx ??? I saw some speculation that it was an upscale Syma X8 clone, but haven't looked at the various model to see which one.,.

Any thoughts feel free to post below or send a link to an existing thread

There seems to be some interest in the Tiny Whoov hovercraft at the moment.

Which got me thinking of a very simple hovercraft that can fly.

Hi People,

I finally made it up to the hill for some flying and to my surprise DJ was there! We had a good time flying and catching up. Here's a few shots of his awesome plane, this plane just loves to have it's picture taken. It's one of the easiest planes to photograph IMO I also attached a few Eagle pics I took before I got to the hill at the eagles nest, the mom took off shortly after I arrived and hit a thermal almost instantly and started soaring and the baby was watching her from the nest, I could see it looking up at her with the binoculars, great stuff, Life is Good!

Got the new prop for the Leopard .15 Tundra. Also, put the rear struts on the stabilizer as I noticed flutter when you romp on it!

Hi guys! Has been awhile since I posted but im going to make it a goal too start posting weekly for you. It has not been from lack of fpv but more so putting more time into my builds and tuning them. I had been flying a build that had nothing too be desired and it was time for a change. I decided too build up a couple new 5 inch quads for my 2018 flying season and add a new gopro as well for much higher quality footage. The build list here:

-Martian 2 5 inch frame
-Raceday Quads/Josh Bardwell f4 flight controller
-Spedix 25a d shot escs
-Raceday Quads 2205 2450kv motors
-Racekraft 5040 tri blades
-xm+ receiver
-akk x1 vtx with aomway cloverleaf
-Rotor Riot Swift 2 camera
-Gopro session with 3d printed mount

Overall flying this new build really opened my eyes too what a good build should feel like vs a low quality build. Even with a good tune sometimes a bad build is just gonna fly bad, although I know some people have good luck with cheaper products, its just not for me so I went with quality.

I also made sure to post a raw clip for you guys on the channel so you can truly see what I see here:

The stick feel is amazing and it made my skill level feel as if everything I was doing was easy compared too before. Let me know what you think!!

-Big thanks too Tattu for helping me stay in the air!!!

Hi folks!
In the last few weeks I was trying to make my idea become real. The idea was a small glass fuse, geodetic wing DLG glider. I was just curious about those gypsum moulds. Would it work? There was only one way to see it. After I decided to go this way things happened quickly. I made an MDF plug, separated the halves, and with a help from my dad we casted both moulds and it worked (almost). Gypsium have this awful shrink characeristic. It helps with pulling the plugs out of form but it also changes the overall shape of the fuselage (halves are more less the same because of similar shrinkage on identical shapes).
Will keep you up to date!

Thanks for looking at my mini review thread here on my blog! Let me first start off by saying I'm a fan of the ZD RACING brand. I bought my first models back in 2011 and scooped all three 1:16 models (truggy, buggy and Monster Truck). I still have them all and raced the buggy with my friends in at a private track. What a blast! Now this comes along, a version 2 of the series. I'm a big fan of all the models including the 1:10 and 1:8. There's a lot of quality in these models and the price fits pretty much anyone's budget!

This model is very cool looking, i like the camo body and newer tires versus the chevron style on the original model from 2011. I do a side by side comparison in the video. I like to thank Gearbest for sending me this to review and if you like what you see, check out my channel and search ZD racing to find all the other videos I got about the RCs I own.
