1/16 scale R/C Army truck that I haul out with my bombers on occasion. The 55 gal. drums, and the tarp covered cargo that hides the batteries, are all scratch built. It has power to all six wheels.

Thanks for taking a peak here. If you like, my YouTube channel (Mike's RC Corner) is full of these videos and love to have you along for the ride!

I found this Radio for sale online and from the features list, I'm very impressed for what you get for $50!! It has a gyro installed in the receiver for steering assist, 7 channels, flashlight built into the radio, temperature sensor, 15 model memory, etc... Receivers are only $12 to boot too!

Check out the video and I'll be following up with more with how it performs and how the features work. More info is in the video notes.

Here is a link to the Video:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bXqIyP2apRU

I have everything repaired after my 1st Crash with this plane.
That will teach me not to fly this plane in too much wind ;-)
I had to reattach one of the Landing Gear and straighten the other one.
I have also increase the Dual-Rate on the Elevator for insurance ;-)

Repairs Completed: Straightened and reattached Landing Gear.

This Kit is discontinued but they still have the F6F Hellcat ;-)

Hi fellow rc pilots & rc enthusiasts

SJRC F11 Pro, MJX Bugs 4W, ZLRC SG906 Beast, SJRC F11 review camera shootout - Which video do you think is best?
I replicate 4 short flights with these great low cost GPS FPV Quadcopter Drones that all have min 1080p HD cameras as close as possible in the same weather conditions for comparison, but I do not disclose which video was taken with which drone,Öyet. Please comment and say which video you think is best,ÖDrone 1, 2 , 3 or 4.

And,.... I will also disclose which video was taken with which drone and the one that gets the most likes, votes or general consensus on this channel in one weeks time.

WLtoys959 + sq12 (2 min 38 sec)




A) Yes , I nearly flew the wings off the F959 .. Toward the end of the video it got very squirrel'y so I decided to land it . Honestly , I was probably one second away from the wings falling off . Yes they were glued in , but apparently I had gone a little overly weight saving in the assembly and the windy conditions broke the glue bond . And the wings backed out of the fuse ....
B) I did want that flight video ..
C) Calmer conditions needed , but with all the bad weather . There is only one good day on the weather forecast , and that day is scheduled as UMx whipit day . I better charge some batteries ....

Hi guys,
I ended up in a pond and burned some electronics .
I've disassembled the drone, cleaned end dried , bought new fly controller PC board, assembled again and now I cannot pair the drone with the old remote transmitter.
After turning on the drone itís light are blinking fast and then slow (thatís how it was before) after turning the remote controller and moving speed stick up and down the transmitter beeps and nothing is changing on the drone (lights are still blinking slow)( same with both sticks down at 45 degrees)
Is it possible that Iíve damaged something else on the drone (possible camera PC board, all motors are O.K.) ?
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Best regards,
SG

Uruav UR85 HD test (2 min 19 sec)


Get it here

Test flight with my new Uruav Ur 85 HD. The full HD footage is straight from the Caddx Turtle V2, just on the first part a filter was applied. This cinewhoop flies nicely, but it is not very suited for freestyle.

Tried ordering this from HobbyKing, TWICE. Both times my order was canceled for whatever reason I'll never know. I've read similar tales elsewhere. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. Some guys swear by them. Turnigy's no help either. They're still out of stock in the U.S. warehouse, with no known ETA. I may convert my home-made nitro stand to electric. Not as pretty as that V3, though. George

I should be getting this next, should stand a better chance of 3d flying ( inverted ) than the sailfly due to the bigger motors , I got the sailfly to 3d but not brilliant due to the smaller motor and ESC sizes, this might work perhaps...

And a couple of coupons to try to get it cheaper.
Coupon 1 ($111.75): BGToothpick
Coupon 2 ($115.56): bgssaff9

Full speed toothpick pro.
Looks good from specs, bit more speed and power is always good lol.
Definitely worth checking out and I'll update when I get mine.

Description:

New hybrid drones are being designed here at the sandwichaero laboratories, smaller and cheaper than our actual 2000W hybrid drone.

next model is going to use 15" propellers and a 1000W generator, a configuration which will provide 5 hours of flight time with a light payload (up to 500g) and more than 2 hours with a medium payload (up to 2kg).

You can buy our 2000W hybrid drone from here: https://sandwichaero.com/products/hy1000-hybrid-uav
