Priority number one for modifying the transmitter would be to place the gimbal assemblies far enough apart to prevent my hands and stylus from contacting one another while flying. Second priority was to place the various switches on the transmitter into positions that would allow me to either bump them or hook them with my fingers to select different flight modes and channels.

The first serious idea that I considered was to strip all of the electronics out of the case of my new Spektrum DX6 and cut out holes for the gimbals, display screen and all the various scrolls and switches in a wide, thin piece of Lexan in a configuration similar to a Jeti DC-24 transmitter but spread out wider and longer. I ran the idea by my cousin, who has professional experience designing and building electronic panels, and he thought it would be something that could be done and was willing to tackle the job.

While I was thinking about what I thought would be the best layout for the gimbals and switches on the planned Lexan board, I asked my cousin to modify the case on my DX6 as it was currently configured by cutting off the plastic horizontal antenna housing/carrying handle so that my transmitter could lay flat on the current Lexan board I'm using. When we opened up the transmitter and got a look at just how complicated the transmitter was and how much work it would take to place all the individual electronics onto a Lexan board, I decided it would be a good idea to go...Continue Reading

I got out for some "spring flying" on our hill after work today, 37 degrees 18 mph wind and snow...Yup I Love New York

Had one to maiden,cant say it went well.
Acted very tail heavy added a bunch of nose weight,barely flying ,conditions were not fun and tired after a full work day...I will get back to it

Then I put The Knife Edge up
This Plane just kicks Butt !
spent the next hour or so ripping with it,gusts that rocked me on my heels ,crossed and bumpy ,sink, snow ,grovel you name it the KE just does it .

Flying it in close on the top of the hill and standing it on a wing tip , pulling elevator to do a paper clip turn ,it seems to accelerate thru the turn like it was shot out of a canon,I think it is the flex in the wing loading up and then unloading like a slalom ski.....
Great way to end the day

It's been a good while since Gearbest have had any good quad specials on, I noticed their website has improved so maybe that is where the focus has been. Anyway I've posted my pick of specials below at http://quadifyrc.weebly.com/coupons-and-discounts.html

I like the fact that both the TX200 and an OEM CCD micro camera are both on special meaning you can upgrade your AIO camera in your brushless micro to a CCD cam with variable power vtx for less than $30. More details on this here for the leader.

Emax BabyHawk R for $122

Tattu 3s 450mah battery for $9

Tattu 3s 850mah battery for $12

Tattu 3s 850mah battery for $16

Leader 120 PNF 2.5" brushless quad for $110

Full Speed TX200 25/200mW VTX $10

Furibee MS Micro CCD Camera $18

HAKRC 20A 4in1 2-4s 20mm ESC $17

Whoop pro f3 light controller with OSD $18

Emax LHCP pagoda antennas (pair) $5
