I do not have an ultrasonic cleaner. I use a plastic tub i bought at GoodWill for cheap...

The tub is large enough to cover a small disassembled engine (saito fa-56 size) with one bottle of LA's Totally Awesome Cleaner.
May need another bottle for a medium engine (.91). Or just turn air-exposed parts over for soak. Depends on container size, skinny and tall will cover more.

Always have extra bottles of cleaner, $1 at Dollar Tree. You may want Q-Tips or pipe cleaners for carbs and intakes.
Will need a towel, an old rag for drying, paper towels, and 3-in-1 oil (or your preference--oil the entire engine after cleaning)

Let metal parts soak for 30 minutes to an hour (or so). If you are going to clean plastic parts, there is a dilution scale on the side of the LA's Totally Awesome Cleaner bottle. I do not put o-rings or gaskets in the cleaner.

I soaked a disassembled FA-45 carb (some plastic parts) in un-diluted LA's cleaner for about an hour and it turned out very... clean! This was before i saw the dilution scale...

It's simple. Yet takes me about 3 hours (thumpers). I prefer to take my time during assembly. No need to rush, then you lose teflon spacers in white shag carpet

(2-strokes are quicker to assemble but not a big deal)

This is the first 4S Test Flight of my Durafly Me 163 Komet 950mm PNF.

Hobbyking Durafly Me 163 Komet 950mm PNF 4S-Powered Test Flight (4 min 34 sec)

As I thoroughly enjoyed the flight characteristics of the RocHobby Swift and Durafly EFXtra, I decided to get my Durafly Me 163 Komet up to speed as well. I was definitely in for a surprise when I made the switch to 4S, as I now consider this plane to be ridiculously fast for its size. More fine-tuning with the rates / throws will be required on future flights as the controls are a lot more sensitive on 4S speeds.

Using the Hitec Energy Sport 60-Amp ESC / APC 5.5x4.5 Speed 400 Electric Propeller setup and powered by a Roaring Top 4S 1800mAh 70C, I measured 38.1-amps max static with 586 watts on the Eflite Power Meter. The Nerf Vortex Whistle adds a unique sound during flight and was installed by drilling a hole on the circular canopy hatch indent and is secured by GE Type II Silicone. The Pretty Woman Designer Nails Set: Stiletto Shape / Long Length that I found at Walmart are also the perfect shape to protect the vulnerable painted foam wing tip bumps that are commonly scratched during landings, and are glued on with Loctite 5-Minute Epoxy. Lastly, the airframe finish is protected with 2 coats of Minwax Satin Finish Polycrylic.

GnarlyFPV's Blitz Spec motors The Fastest 716s on the Block (3 min 15 sec)

Hello everyone welcome back.

Today's video has me really excited. I have been on a mission to find faster 716 brushed motors. Well my mission is over. Thank you GnarlyFPV. These are the Blitz SPec motors. They are by far the fastest 716s I have flown. First launch sent me straight into the ceiling. That hasn't happened in a long time. I installed these motors into my BetaFPV Beta 65s. I also traded out my triblade props for some of their 4 blade props.

These motors are compatible with
Eachine E011
BoldClash Bwhoop
BetaFPV Beta 65s
and any other micro quad that runs 716 motors.

Pick up some GnarlyFPV Bllitz Spec motors today

Check out my video on how to build and maintain your Tiny Whoop.

Check out this incredible model the "Detroit Miss" P-51 Mustang Warbird, seen here flying at the BRCM annual warbirds over the bay event. Gotta love the scale rivets, attention to detail, and placards on this historic fighter! Absolutely breathtaking seeing work like this show up at flying fields, and even more breathtaking is the flight that you can check out in this video!

This is the outdoor flight review video for the XK X130-T RTF Micro FPV Race Drone. It is a user friendly setup for the first-time FPVer, much like the MJX Bugs 6, only much smaller and less expensive.

XK X130-T RTF Micro FPV Race Drone - Outdoor Maiden Flights (5 min 10 sec)

Review Notes:
- An easy to use RTF package
- A good beginner FPV package
- Handles wind well
- The video looked surprisingly good through my Fat Sharks
- Carbon Fiber Frame
- True 5.8 GHZ FPV
- Stability and Acro Mode
- High and low rates
- Long flight times (8 minutes)
- Readily available batteries
- A great value
- Compatible with BS - FHSS protocol radios
- The range was good with my Fat Shark FPV Goggles
- It was very fun to fly

- The antenna is vulnerable and delicate
- The props are very bendy and fragile (The curled a little in the cold air during the outdoor flights)
- The elevation dropped more quickly in forward flight than expected for the pitch
- It is 1S, so there is a ceiling on power

Howdy people

allright.. not Really a RC proeduct in this thread, eventhough I do regularly use this phone when flying a video-quad
So.. I recently ordered up a new Smartphone from Gearbest. Originally I had not really planed on doing a review of it, but the other reviews I came across omitted some crucial info.. So I decided to do a review of it anyway

Here's something I bought and I'm doing a review on for my youtube channel, Mike's RC Corner. This is the WLtoys 20402 (Agility) 4wd Monster Truck. It's 1/20 scale so right there it's something a little different. The specs claim this truck does 45km and it is indeed quite fast, it definitely needs the wheelie bar that comes with it. It's super fun to run that's for sure. Here's my video taking it out for spin and testing to see what it can do. I've reviewed a lot of RCs and I'm impressed with this one (and it's hard to beat the mid $50 price tag).

Long time since my last entry , been very busy with life in general ,not getting much time in the workshop . Hopefully That will all settle down mid 2018 with a new house and a
good size workshop . I really am itching to build something new and big ,but again it will have to wait . I am trying to get time to work on my Higgins R10 and hopefully fly it at MSF18 . i also want to build a new set of wings for the Hudson as I decided that the wing loading was way to high to survive a landing ,we will see how that turns out till then thats all from me.

Oh man if I could parlay my RC addiction into something that produces enough cash to cover my rent and to replace my wrecked airplanes... I've got the hang of flying, I've got the hang of filming, I've got the hang of editing. But I've made a hundred videos and only have 49 subscribers, not even close to bother turning on ads. I'd like to shove my fledgling channel into search visibility, which might take a thousand subs after which I suspect it becomes much easier to accumulate more.

Take Flyin' Ryan. This guy makes simple RC review videos, the format generally is several minutes split in half, the first half talking about the plane or helicopter or drone (usually drones), and then he flies the thing in a small room, banging around the walls in a lighthearted, comical and endearing way.

Silverlit - Pico Falcon (2015 World's Smallest RC Helicopter) - Review and Flight (7 min 56 sec)

That video has 2.6M views, a no-budget video of a tiny Radio Shack-tier heli. No script, not much editing involved; it might take maybe, I don't know, three hours to produce a clip from unboxing to posting. However long it takes him it's definitely less than I spend on a single two minute clip. I go crazy trying to perfect everything. Here's my desk working on my next video. Overkill, I know, and proof of no return on excessive editing; but I'm a bit OCD.

If he monetized that well, that single seven minute video might have already made him in the neighborhood of five...Continue Reading
