I was in a need of a new charger , so I came across this the EV-Peak A1 100W 10Amp Touch Screen NiMH / LiPO Battery Balance Charger.

I've been using this now for a month and I have to say it's really nice! The touch screen controls are very intuitive. It can also charge those high voltage packs.

The interface on the charger is fairly easy. I did refer to the manual to set it up, but I was charging in a matter of minutes. Once you input you batteries specifications on the charger you can save that profile on the charger, so next time you go to charge (or you have different cell count batteries ) you don't have to put in all the battery specs.

I also wanted to begin parallel charging, so I needed a charger that could do the job.

I purchased this from Getfpv for $70 free shipping and this has been great so far. I highly recommend this if your in the market for a new/hobby grade charger at a decent price.

This is the beginning of a lot of fun to come, at $40 this is a really nice quad frame for either 5" or 6" props. The ability to fly either basic LOS or fpv equipped is fairly versatile, and can appeal to more people.

3mm version shown, their is now a 4mm version!

All in all very nice frame for the money!

This blog entry is the first of many more installments going over the Armattan carbon fiber 355. Chris over at Armattan was gracious enough to send out a diy kit for me to document from the time received, to the first flight. Going over kit contents,frame assembly, component configuration/soldering, flight setup, as well as maiden flight.

Many of these video's are in the pipeline over the next few weeks. Be sure to check out video's below

Hey guys

I got a new radio.....The highly talked about Taranis X9D plus. I purchased this from GetFPV last Sunday the 25th and received it Friday the 30th, not bad on turn around.

A little on my own transmitter history, I first started with a dx6i . It was a really good unit to begin with, though limited me once I began my road to FPV. The next setup I got was a turnigy 9xr with orange module. This help get me off the ground via FPV for a decent price, but had it's own draw backs, such as the gimbal pots being really stiff, and I really wanted to use telemetry!

First impressions the the Taranis X9D Plus is very nice! The overall quality you can feel in your hands, moving the sticks, and adjusting the switches is what makes this transmitter stand out from the rest. Not to mention the capability of the OpenTx software as well as price point is what makes this hands down a top contender. I'm now seeing what all the fuss is about!

Just received a set of MC3508-580kv motors from FPVModel.

Received some new motors from witespy. These are the new 2208 1800kv. Initial impressions are really good. They all have a nice spin, long motor leads, and a standard prop adapter as well as a t style prop adapter.

Hope to get these mounted soon on an acro quad to further test performance.

Past few months I've been building different quads for people. Mainly the ever popular mini h quads. I noticed that a lot of the big name guys that design these frames only offer the frames, and not a full build. Some do offer ARF's too.

After a few builds I wanted my own space to show and share AND offer rxr's on popular models.

This is for those who want something ready to go just add your own receiver

My new place:

Finally got this frame in! Waited for awhile now, and all in all it looks a lot better in person rather than starring at pictures on the screen. Really nice cuts of the carbon fiber. The edges are seamless no nicks or scratches, just plain beautiful!

This build will be a 4s capable build using high voltage F12a esc's accompanied with the Lumenier FX2206-13 2000kv motors.

I haven't decided of the fc as of yet, but and leaning towards the acro naze 32, which is what I use on my personal builds, or may give the Lumenier branded CC3D a try. I 've heard good things about them, so I may give it a go!

Stay tuned more to follow!

I'm wanting to offer up my time and experience to help those who are new or just doesn't have the time to build/complete their own projects.

The whole idea is to design and put up a website to illustrate current builds,past customer builds, and to inquire about getting your multirotor built.

You can see some of my other blog's a few builds I have completed. If you find that you're interested just shoot me a pm. We can discuss detail on what your wanting done and I can get you an estimate and turnaround time on completion.

A simple build you can send me all your components i.e. frame-motors-esc's-fc and I'll do the rest as far as connectors, soldering and making sure the build is as neat as possible.

I know a lot of learning comes from building your own, but I believe there are many out there that would like to skip the whole build process completely AND FLY

Any questions send me a pm.

I'll be building this in the next few weeks! It's going to be a great small acro platform.

Read up on it:

All credit going to Soma creator of the Warpquad!

Prepped looming process. Very easy to achieve this. Tho you do need a good soldering iron that is one thing I'm finding out.

-Esc's prepped for motor attachment. This is the tedious process, but reduces a lot of unnecessary weight.

Overall build is going quite well. It's pretty straight forward as far as building it from the ground up goes.
Decent soldering skills is need to add to that also is a good soldering iron setup. When mounting the motors the leads had to be shortened then re tinned. To achieve this a really hot iron is needed. Standard low wattage irons won't cut it....Continue Reading

I built this a little over a month ago. I have done a few flights on it, and so far it's amazing. The frame itself is in it's own class due to the fold-able arms. This has been in my opinion my best build!
