Hello I'm Eric the owner of Prestigious Innovation Development, A Step Above RC LLC, And DirectLink Antenna Co. I'd like to interduce a new one of a kind quad that we have developed. We are just wrapping up testing on the proto type and, have got some great results. We are now looking for dealers for the exciting new quad. We plan to only sell to Dealers but we are willing to sell 10 to the public at a discounted rate to get some feedback on the quad.

The Quads name is the Dual Sport By Prestigious Innovation Development or P.I.D. for short. The quad has some very unique Features that we have never seen on a quad before. It can change from a high quality 430mm 117MPH 6S Racing drone to a Search and rescue or aerial photography platform with ease. All you have to do to switch modes is change the props, Flip a switch, change lipos, and bolt on the Night Vision 1-27X Zoom Cam. Here are some of the great features that the quad has to offer. I'll split up the features into all modes, sports mode, and stealth mode.

All models.
1: Redundancy on all sensors and power. Including 2x power modules, 3x accelerometers, 3x Compass, 3x Gyro, and Here GPS With centimeter Ground plane.
2: Also has an acro Mode.
3: Pixhawk 2.1 With Eddison Carrier board and Edison Chip.
4: Dual Lipo's and power modules
5: 3+ Miles range
6: On Screen Display
7: Flight Deck App Installed on a QX7 Taranis. This gives you all the info that mission planner offers on the screen of your Taranis...Continue Reading

We Now manufacture the 6S Blaze its the fastest BNF/RTF Racing Drone in the world!!!
I'd like to introduce the new 6S Blaze Mar by A Step Above Rc Llc. We have a few fishy models available. We have 3 different games and sizes fit starters but we can build the eyes on your frame of choice upon request.

The 4s Blaze 180,200,and 210 is theccheapest but don't let that fool you. It's a top of the line, race ready, or tuned 4S beat that's a great choice for beginners or pro's alike.

Every Blaze Quad is built one at a time by hand to order. That way we can make small adjustments to cut the buyers wanted and needs. We spend over 9 hours labor on every built assembling, updating to the newest Bl-heli_s firmware, Betaflight, testing and tuning every quad to perfection. We use nothing but the best race tasty c components on all the Blaze series. The differences between the different models are listed below :

4S Blaze comes with:
Emax Dshot 30:amp 2-4s bullet series ESC's
Our own new motor line "Prestige" that rivals the Emax RS2205-S motors. They come in 2300 kv or 2700kv options

The only difference between the 6S Blaze V1 and V2 is:
V1:
PRESTIGE 2205 2300KV 6S motors

V2:
PRESTIGE 2306 2450Kv 6S ready motors

All of the above use these other great posts on all the models.
1:Omnibus F4 Pro V2 Fc with built in beta flight Osd and SD card reader for Blackbox
2: all but the 4s Blaze use Emax bullet series 35amp 3-6s blheli_s ESC's
3: Mantech PDB...Continue Reading

Ok here us a simple trick that most people never think of.
I'll use when you extending a servo wire as an example. Normally yo would have 3 or 4 P ices of heat shrink one for each wire and then a forth to go over All the pieces of heat shrink to make it look a little neater. The problem with this is it ends up making a thick part in the wire that don't look so neat. so here's a self explanationitory picture. It shows you how to use one piece of heat shrink saving space and making a much neater looking connection. Hope this helps. Please leave a comment so I know If anyone likes this. That way I know If I should keep posting little how to tips and tricks like this.
Thanks for looking.



Kind regards.

This is a way I came up with to use Samsung Gear VR Goggles for FPV For the following Craft with no HDMI mod needed or any expensive hardware. Best of all I found a way around it being mandatory to use a Samsung Device with the goggles. Any Phone that will run the DJI app will work fine.

DJI Drones that this will work with:
Phantom 3 Advanced
Phantom 3 Pro
Phantom 3 4K Phantom 3 Standard
Inspire 1& 2
DJI mavic
And Maybe Vision +

Ok, so what are the benefits of this little hack. It allows you to Buy a relatively Cheap Set of new or used SSamsung Gear VR goggles and Achieve great a Great FPV experience with Head tracking for a very small amount of money.

I have another post on how to Use your Gear VR Goggles with any normal VTX and VRX FPV Setup. That way Uses you phone As a DVR and monitor for you FPV and records Flight Telemetry info to your phone sd card or hard drive. You can also do a mix of the 2 post to use none Samsung devices with Gear VR and a regular FPV setup. It doesn't have to be a phantom with that option. But back to this.

Your gonna need to spend a small amount of cash to get it going but it's not going to break the bank. If you don't have a set of Gear VRs they can be found used like new all over the places online like eBay or LEGO app. Not long ago they were giving them away for free with the purchase of aS7 or Note & Phone And many people did use them or tried them once and they have just sat in the box. I wouldn't pay more...Continue Reading

Hello, I'd like to share some info that I had a hard time finding. It enables you to use them with any FPV setup including phantoms, Solo and any drone that you have a HDMI video out plug on you remote or, a regular VTX. It also uses your phone as a DVR and, you can use one of the components to optionally use your laptop as a DVR that shows telemetry on the screen. If you have a drone with GPS it can be a life saver if you loose it. You can Pay back the telemetry video to look at the GPS location on the telemetry.

First your going to have to download a couple apps to your Android. The are free to download.

The first one is called "FPV VIEWER" they have it in Google play. Or I'll post a link below.

The second one is "Disable for Oculas"

Fpv viewer automatically picks up the FPV feed when it is sent to the phone and records it to your phone. It also splits the video info two screens so it's campatable with the vr goggles. You can partially open up the phone away from the goggles while keeping it plugged in and pinch the screen to make it bigger or smaller. You can make it so large that it's the only thing you see. It does get a little hard to read telemetry if it's too big though so keep that in mind.

Disable for oculas makes it so that when you plug the phone into the vr goggles it don't automatically open the oculas app.

You start by opening disable for oculas app and clicking disable before opening fpv viewer or at attaching...Continue Reading
