The first version of the SG906 was pretty amazing and it is the only Aerial Photography quad that I still fly due to the GPS actually working exactly as it should . This time we have a 2 axis gimbal and some upgrades made to the Camera, 5G Wifi and software ( which is always good) and we even have some flashy Gif's (thats my trademark thanks very much ), could ............ could this be the ultimate budget AP Quad ????? If they would upgrade the cam to Firefly 4K or CaddX Tarsier quality this would be killer !

After contacting the manufacturer it seems the new camera is not backwards compatible, which is a shame. Waiting on a raw video sample.

Following on from the previous P-51 we have another gyro stabilised micro plane from Eachine/Volantex, this time the USAF F- 22. Things are a little different this time with a direct drive pusher prop ( micro edf at this price point is a little too much to ask i think ) and a removal of the rudder in favour of a locked twin elevator ( the two servos control an elevator each but cannot be controlled independently FSSR )

Some quick "Tricks"

OPENTX/DEVIATIONTX : With the latest version of the software and the latest MultiProtocolModule firmware you can control these planes. Protocol V761, they are 6 channel boards with CH5 being Gyro mode/sensitivity. This gives a MUCH finer control IMO

Reversing Aileron or Elevator Direction : BEFORE arming (connect battery but do not throttle up to arm ) Move the Elevator/Aileron stick to the maximum and hold it for 2-3 seconds. The Transmitter will BEEP and the Elevator/Aileron will Twitch. You have now reversed Aileron/Elevator direction.

Taileron Control : Remove the aileron servo plug ( and Servo for that matter ) This will start the board in Taileron control, WHY ? you ask , well , removing the Aileron servo and its linkages will make the plane a few grams lighter increasing performance and Taileron control is more than enough for a tiny little stabilized plane imo, ALSO you can install this board in a FLYING WING and have Elevon control or install it any Chuck Glider,...Continue Reading

To sit alongside their growing popular range of Cruiser and Long Range planes ,an incredibly simple GPS and Flight Controller or Mini FPV Cam/Vtx combo Zohd have put together a simple set of battery packs A 2S 7.4v 18650 pack for your favourite choice of Goggles, the 2S pack should be a good replacement for the Fatsharks, Aomway or even Eachine VR D2 stock battery and a 4S 14.8v 3500mAh 18650 pack which at 210grams is comparable to a 2200mAh 3S 11.1v LiPo but with 50% more mAh and an extra cell to boot !. They do of course have a lower Amp draw but these are not meant for your racing drone or pylon racer and instead are more suited to your long range 'Cruiser' loaded up with 4K cameras to take some wild and explorative video......................They would also fit quite nicely in my FeiLun FT011 RC Boat

2S 7.4v 18650 pack

Lithium Ion batteries are not stranger to the RC & FPV scene. They have been around for years, especially for those who like to DIY.
Most pilots are very familiar with the advantages and disadvantages of Li-ions but its also known that the advantages for FPV pilots (especially long rangers) are way more than the shortcomings. With a well-planned power setup, this packs can give you up to double the flight time you will get with a similar Li-Po battery, not...Continue Reading
