Atomik Barbwire 2 First Run & Speed Test (9 min 36 sec)

What a fun day we had today. We started work on the mud pit for the new mud truck build and then went out to test out Atomik Barbwire 2 RC speed boat. It was my first experience driving an RC boat and I was nervous. I didn't have a recovery boat of shame to take out if something went wrong and the only place I could think of was a canal that isn't very wide. I'd have preferred a lake, but we mainly have rivers and canals down here. In the end, it was plenty wide and the boat was fast and fun! It's pretty small which makes it very portable and it was very quick for the size. It turns on a dime, dives into the water and pops back up. The self-righting feature works great and saved me several times. The only scares I had were when some leaves go caught around the prop and it could only slowly come back to shore - that's due to the dirty water. I didn't expect to have as much fun as I did. My boys loved watching it and Dino even drove it.

I plan to test the speed again after the batteries and motor have broken in.

Huge "thank you" to my wife for trying to follow my erratic driving with the camera. It's not her favorite thing to do (by a long shot), but she did came out and did great.

CCxRC Mud Pit Test With Dual Motor SCX10 (4 min 45 sec)


We're getting ready for the first run of the custom 1980 Chevy Mud Truck build...so we had to build a mud pit in the backyard. Try getting permission from your wife to dig up the backyard and fill it with mud. Haha. My wife rolled her eyes, but was cool with it as she knows how important the channel is to me. So my boys and I set out to make a mess (in hindsight I could've made sure they weren't wearing their brand new pants or best shoes...oops...my bad). We've never built a mud truck course before, so we wanted to test it with the SCX10 to make sure it wasn't going to be too easy - it was. We did ad more dirt in the mud pits to make it soupier, but it was still easy. However, the more we ran it...the harder it got. So I think we'll keep it wet and soupy and run the SCX10 through it a bunch the really make it hard for the mud truck. We want to show it off, but we also want it to have to work for it.

You'll see that it starts to get stickier as the video goes on. Also, you know that I love Venom batteries, but you'll notice some extra mentions. That's because they've just stepped in to sponsor the channel and keep the vehicles powered.
Enjoy.

The attacks on our freedoms continue. We had to register for anything we fly over 0.55 lbs. to 55 lbs. And then, a ruling saying we didn't have to, because it was unconstitutional, temporarily restored our right (ie: the pursuit of happiness). Did we get our five bucks back? No. With the arrival of the new administration in 2016, it was reintroduced into the verbage of legislations passed, and again, we have to register. I'm just curious if this will make ultramicro aircraft to become even more popular. I'll certainly be flying more of them from now on. The hobby industry here and abroad should take note. We are all in this together. Advocating for our right to fly as free as possible is mutually beneficial. If we can't buy model airplanes and kits, because it's too darned expensive to register them, that'll shut down many businesses and jobs. You guys gotta help us out.

Ok it turned out to be a simple correction for me ...
https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/5pcs-Cre...53.m2749.l2649 Got me some of these , fit the Eachine VR006 almost perfectly .

So after playing around for a while , the cure seemed to be to lay the magnifying card over the existing lens on the outside .
All I had to do was cut a grove for the nose relief .
Then use a small piece of tape to hold the magnifier in place ..

And thats it ! How simple ( Bush League ) is that !

Now I can see ! ( To FPV )

Hi Folks,
I have been out of work here for about 6 months, I do not have the DOD clearance to get a job near by, but I'm trying. Anyway. Delivered a heli Gaui X7 formula to a happy customer yesterday at the IRKS field. Today I was in Fort Lauderdale delivering an Ultra-Stick for a guys son.

I really like to build, not fly to much. Foamies mostly. I like the Crack Yack by twisted hobbies and their beaver is cool too.

Selling stuff off that are collecting dust, so you might check the classifieds to see the model items we have.

That's it for today.
Laura M,

Lots of fun watching people fly that know what they're doing! Really need to get some practice. Hadn't flown but once since November - and my landings sure showed.

Didn't take that many pictures this time, didn't want to push my knee too much (I was really giving out at the end)...anyhow, here are some snapshots from today:

This is the Maiden Flite for the E-Flite Pawnee Brave Night Flyer 1.2M BNF Basic RC Plane With AS3X Technology. In this video I fly the plane around and even do a loop on a cloudy windy day. The combination of wind and further trimming being required made this plane not feel that great in the air. I do think with additional trimming that this will be a good flyer and even during the day, the lights were awesome!

E-flite Brave Night Flyer 1.2M BNF Basic RC Plane With AS3X Technology Maiden Flight (3 min 22 sec)

Here are my preliminary review notes for this Crop Duster RC Plane:

Pros:
- The lights are amazing!
- It takes a 3S 2200 lipo
- It fits in my car, but just barely with the seats down
- It has a unique look

Cons:
- Even at the specified CG point and control surface recommendations, it did not fly level and smooth
- There were numerous defects out of the box including a bad battery bay cover, a pilot that wasn't glued in properly, and an uneven horizontal stabilizer.

Review (ip) of Eachine TX5258 - 5.8G 72CH 25/200/500/800mW Switchable FPV Transmitter w Support OSD Configuring (SmartAudio)



This is first, at least that I know of, SmartAudio capable VTX named TX5258 from Eachine.
I find Smartaudio protocol, and its capability to control VTX settings trough Betaflight OSD or with BetaFlight LUA script for Taranis (OpenTX) super convenient and I am starting to use it on all my newly built quads.




Specification:
  • Antenna Gain: 3dBi
  • Frequency: 5645-5945MHZ

My arkbird tiny can't find any satellites.

After powering on the indicator light (on the gyro unit) double flashes. Appently this indicates that it is searching for satellites. The green light on the GPS unit itself flashes a steady green. The manual also specifies that the elevator should be up at this point, however it remains stationary.

I have tried it without the GPS plugged in and all the surfaces function normally.

I have left it outside for a good twenty minutes and it is still indicating no signal.

Anything to try?

Drone racing career beckons for Australia's teenage world champion Thomas Bitmatta. The 18-year-old from Melbourne hit the big time last year when he edged out more than 300 of the world's top drone fliers to win the MultiGP International Open in the US. Bitmatta, from Roxburgh Park in Melbourne's north, has been accepted to study mechatronics but will defer for a year to travel the world particularly the US racing drones. Bitmatta will head to Florida this month to compete in the first US competition of the season.
