Just bought 2x E011c and removed the annoying christmas song speaker.
This was the cheapest way to go rather than buying the E011 from Banggood.
My question is does any one know what budget transmitter works well with this drone? only asking because the one provided is too small and up/down toggle is so touchy that i cannot control it.
I bought a Propel nano 2.0 previously and this was easy to learn how to fly but one of my motors fried. Propel do not get back to me about where i can buy new motor so i gave up on that venture and that is how i came across the Eachine E011c.
Read some info on the Bayangtoys X9 transmitter being compatible.
One drawback, the X9 transmitter lacks a button to flip to inverted position what ever that means??

Emirates Airline has pledged to order up to 36 extra Airbus A380s, and, in doing so, has essentially saved the European firm’s flagship commercial plane from the scrapheap. Airbus needs to make at least six A380s a year in order to maintain an efficient production line, and no orders came in during 2017. A few days ago, the company warned it may have to end production unless a big new order came in soon.

This is what some of us RC guys do when the weather is not going well. I picked up one of these inexpensive kits on eBay. It uses 512 3mm LED's formed in a matrix. It dances around in animation and is nice conversation piece. So if you enjoy soldering or were an avid Heathkit guy like I was back in the 70's this is worth building. I made a video to help out anyone who suffers through the bad documentation that is included.

Next on my drawing board is a Waco YQC-6 "Sesquiplane" that I translated into foam from an old "Skymasters" free-flight plan. I made a few adjustments to wing incidences for powered flight vs rubberband, then I worked backwards from the outlines to create crutches and formers that tab together for quick assembly. The exterior is then skinned with 3/16-1/4" (6mm) FFF or Depron, etc. I'll finish it with masking paper/Tite-bond-II like my Grumman Goose... gives a great finish, easy to paint, prevents a lot of hangar rash, easy to patch, and adds a lot of tensile strength to the foam.

This is another in the series of foam planes that uses the same 5.125" "peanut jar" for a cowl. I've been hoarding these plastic jars for some years now, I use them in my garage to sort nuts and bolts, etc... but they work great as a cowl for radial engines. I even designed a paper-model radial Wasp Jr. engine that I can scale to fit.

64" DeHavilland Beaver
59" Grumman Goose

I currently have a 1/6 scale Sterling Stearman on my build table, so this will have to wait until my desk is cleared... but should be a quick build once I get started. This will make use of a removable "power module" battery tray for easy battery swaps, similar to how I modded the Sterling Stearman. Everything slides out the front of the firewall and is held in place with a spring-loaded pin, disguised as the air intake snorkel.

for many years, i never missed the Tommy Hunter show. folk music. when i was in vancouver, he was in toronto. when i went to california, he went to nashville. when i came back to canada (this time to a place north of toronto), he came back to toronto. but i never had the chance to meet him in person. it was until, in recent years, he came to windsor, where i live, that i had the chance to meet him. i liked his show because had a message of optimism. not only happy music. at the end of each show he hung his guitar and had a phylosophical talk. 1 of them was about a nearby farmer that he went to visit. he said that his wife was going to have another baby and he was out of money. his house needed roof repair as leaked all over; the bank denied a loan so his helper left due to lack of payments; the cow broke in the fence and eat all the beans; the hogs got cholera and died; the soil was so dry that you couldnt rise an umbrela on a sack of fertilizer; and his mother in law was moving in to stay. then he said: but we are still living, so everything is o k.

Eachine E500 Review

Introduction
The Eachine Mirage E500 is a 497mm wingspan VTOL aircraft. Designed to eliminate a lot of problems that plagued “conventional” R/C VTOL aircraft, the E500 may have the potential of becoming a VTOL for the masses. In this review we are going to analyze this aircraft from my perspective as a product developer, and hopefully provide you with some insight towards what it’s like on the ground and in the air.
Special thanks to Banggood.com for providing the sample unit, which was provided under the understanding that my review of the E500 would be unbiased.


A bit of history…
VTOL (Vertical Take Off and Landing) technology has been one of the holy grails of the R/C industry. With the (rather recent) advent of lightweight brushless power systems and lithium polymer batteries, the only thing that stood in the way of developing a true VTOL was the flight control system.
In my previous life as a developer for a certain US-based R/C company, we played with numerous VTOL designs- a quad motor with pivoting pods and two wing-sets, and a V22 with an EDF in the tail section to provide balance. While advanced for the time, these models did still suffer from some of the fundamental problems in VTOL design- highly complex structures which led to added weight, shortened...Continue Reading

Best to wait a year or two, before you purchase a multirotor (drone) for racing, sport flying, video or photography. There are rumors that some major changes in regulations from the FAA and FCC are in store. Of course, they're only rumors right now, but it will affect whether or not you will be allowed to fly or even own a multirotor aircraft. So don't plunk down any of your hard-earned money just yet, unless you're very wealthy and/or have your own private land to fly over. Here is an example of what can happen and worse: https://forum.dji.com/thread-96803-1-1.html

Video of the Crazy Sukhoi. It is designed for indoors but it coped fine with a very light breeze and I enjoyed it so much I kept flying and charging packs until the wind picked up too much.

Hi fellow pilots & rc enthusiasts

Good gloves for rc outdoors. If you do rc outdoors in cold weather like me and hold a radio controller in your hands for long periods of time, it can be very unpleasant. I find these very comfortable & effective, so I thought I would tip & share this with you:
