MJX BUGS 5W - How far it will goes? RANGE TEST (7 min 54 sec)



MJX BUGS 5W keeps surpise me every time I fly it: how far it will goes? In this video I have performed a range test to understand how reliable is this drone.

For just 122€, I think MJX BUGS 5W this is the best drone with gps, brushless motors, compass and a very good 1080p camera.

The coupon is also valid for other versions with more batteries.

Since I was a little kid I've been fascinated with aviation history. My Grandfather attended the Cleveland Air Races in the 30s and 40s and he really got me hooked on the early era of aviation. As I grew up this 'passion' expanded in to WWI and WWII history. Fortunately aviation was well documented through photography. My previous job allowed me to travel...a lot. Each city I visited I tried to find a historic site or famous aviators grave. I love the challenge of finding these places and recreating the photos. Here are a selection from the last few years.

I recently installed a Heli-Max tail rotor gyro in a 2WD Indy car and it made a night and day difference.

So I bought another heli tail rotor gyro, this time it is an Assan brand. And I have installed it in my Raider XL buggy.

The wiring and connectors were a very tight squeeze under the receiver box but I managed to cram them in there!

Hi everyone! I hope all of my old pals here are doing well! I got a new v930 from banggood and of course the battery was missing and I couldn't fly it until some separate batteries I ordered arrived. I told banggood about the missing battery but they want me to take pictures of my box and barcodes etc. Which seems ridiculous to me but whatever. Seems like too much of a hassle. Anyway I finally got to fly the thing today and it's been quite a while since I flew a helicopter. Also it was on the unstablized mode and I didn't realize it. Long story short, it flew back at me and cut my arm in a couple of places like I saw happened to a few other guys here, so I guess I joined the club. A tiny bit deeper I would have needed stitches lol. Be careful everybody, even us experienced guys get nailed occasionally! 😊 Besides the injury it seems like a pretty cool heli!

In making my epp plank wing I had inadvertently made a crushable fuselage - shock absorber when I extended the front of the fuselage by putting a smaller diameter rod inside a larger one. When I crashed nose-on the fuselage collapsed and just wrinkled up the epp foam and the motor just popped off, no real damage. Just hot-glued it all back together again.
Wish I had taken photo of fuselage all crunched up. Hopefully it wont happen again. I had just launched my plank but it was responding to a turn so slowly because the tail was loose and bending back and forth.

Ok , I have been ho-humming over the UMX Whipit DLG for quite some time now .
Well , not exactly jumping on the bandwagon ..
When it first came out , they were not available in The Land of Oz .
So if one wanted one , well you had to pay some horrendous shipping to land one .. ( 80 to 120+ USD )
So while it was a great deal for some , it was not such a great deal for others .
Yes , thats what I have waited for , for a long time . For the Whipit to be a $$ deal I can live with .
$99.99 Ozzi Bananas with free shipping , I can live with that !

Most of the things said about the Whipit were true for me .
The decals have serous air bubbles ...
The screws for holding down the wing , overly tight .
Is the elevator supposed to be glued ? Mine wasn't !
Why does the rudder sort of go left - almost like the plastic rudder grip twists a little to the left (?)

Anyways , fixed the overly tight wing hold down screws ..
Epoxied the elevator ..
Not sure I like the way the rudder is set up ( held by tape )

.. The battery ! ..

I thought I had a battery !
Was from my Eachine 12 , but guess what ?
The plug has the polarity reversed .. ( ?? ) I kid you not ..
I thought I had fried the electronics in the Whipit ..

I pulled the battery apart and re soldered the wires ..
The Whipit lives

Just need some decent weather to go out and Whipit !
I think the rudder will probably come lose on the first landing ( Probably )

Definitely Worth The Effort

I decide to take an EPP Chuck Glider with a 480mm Wingspan and Make an RC Pusher Glider out of it ;-)
The end result was great!
I set it up with Flaperons so I could slow it down for landings and it has a pretty wide flight envelope and turned out to be fairly acrobatic as well.
It's powered with a 2S 400mah 35C LIPO and I can get approx. 7minutes of flight time with that setup.
It carries a Micro FPV System for FPV flights and has an AUW (All-Up-Weight) of 115.6 grams.
The 1104 motor and 3" prop produce approx. 169 grams of thrust so it has decent power for a glider ;-)
I've produced a Video Tutorial of the RC Conversion and posted those to Youtube and provided Plans, Notes, Decals, etc. for download on our Patreon Site.
Here is the Patreon Site Link: https://www.patreon.com/groundcontrolrc
The files are freely available for download.

So if anyone is interested in converting one of these Gliders all my information is provided.
All the videos are available on Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/c/GroundControlRC
We post on Facebook as well: https://www.facebook.com/pg/Ground-C...=page_internal

Happy Flying!

It's been rather busy few days, but I managed to fly the Kadet and Brigadier at the MARKS R/C field while visiting my father. He's belonged to the club for years, but it was my first visit to their field. I've also managed a few hours in the workshop to continue covering the Poke.

I've adopted a CG Super Chipmunk, and I'm learning about the late, great Art Scholl. From what I can find Art learned about aviation with models, and got into full sized aviation with a determination to learn aerobatics. His classic Super Chipmunk is really a different aircraft than the DHC-1 Chipmunk it was based on. Art clipped the wings and enlarged and changed the shape of the tail. He shortened the fuse and made it a one place instead of two, with a custom bubble canopy. He eventually changed to a different engine layout and added retractable landing gear. There were so many changes to the aircraft it was essentially a ground-up redesign. Few would argue Art's place in aerobatic aircraft design history. How did he get there? Did he just whip out his changes on a full size Chippy and go for it?

We know he licensed his design to numerous model manufacturers, such as mine from Carl Goldberg. I came across a video from 1966 where Art was using a model of his Chipmunk in his aviation class. Whats interesting is its apparent the model is flyable based on details like control horns on the control surfaces, and this version of his design was a very early iteration before he changed to a flat 6 engine. So, I was imagining if I were Art. If I had extensive hobby experience and I wanted to design an aerobatic airplane I was going to fly, it makes perfect sense to build a model and wring it out first.

Perhaps I'm out in left field, but we know Art had a very early version (likely) flyable model around 1966, and he later sold design rights (and plans?) to multiple hobby companies. I'm thinking about taking on my CG Chippy, but I may take a closer look and see if I can build a replica of this early version model.

Since I'm not going to compete in BBCC 9 (not a conversion contest anymore), I've decided to revise and rebuild my SU-25, taking what I learned from the original build and flight and incorporating that into the new one..here's a pic of the first one
