So I picked a really windy day to try the Attop A1 for a outside test flight but the little quadcopter held it's own despite the wind gusts,this is a really nice flyer,it also has a 180 degree flip function so it can fly upside down.Also the A1 comes with a nice large controller for more flight control accuracy.
The red version I bought is no longer available at Gearbest.com but they still have it available in blue.

You can get the Attop A1 here https://www.gearbest.com/rc-quadcopt...&lkid=11715892

Here is my video

I know this quadcopter has been out for a while but I still find it is my best camera bird so here is another flight with my Hubsan H501S ,went a bit higher and flew a bit toward the river for better views.Very happy with the Hubsan H501S,in my opinion it is the best gps quadcopter available in its price range,thinking I might get a second one with the pro edition transmitter as well

Hope you all enjoy my video

Here I have put a CM275T mini AIO 5.8ghz FPV camera on top of my MJX X708 Cyclone This basic fpv setup works excellent and the MJX Cyclone flew perfectly for a very enjoyable FPV flight experience.

Update,Gearbest confirmed,1-2 days to wait,so OK please do ship then

Been hoping to get a run on the VKAR Bison out but Gearbest has seems to be dragging it's feet on shipping mine,been on packed status for over a week.What is the hold up Gearbest,you have done good for me for a while now and now this is my most expensive single purchase and it has sat for almost 2 weeks now with no shipped status,.Is Gearbest moving backward with things as far as customer service?I am worried as I thought they had been gaining customer support.Three products on order at the moment and none have arrived in almost a month now.COME ON GEARBEST ,YOU WERE DOING GOOD

Ha Ha ,so I seriously broke my budget recently with my recent r/c purchases but so far have liked what I have bought.I do get free review stuff from time to time but mostely I see things I just gotta try and buy it myself,)as this is my hobby and fun for me.That being said I have spent a good deal(for my budget) lately on some r/c goodies that I am looking forward to share my reviews on soon. Mostly quadcopters ,a fpv camera,and the big purchase for me the VKAR Bison

Hey All,

So I have been considering buy the VKAR RACING BISON for a while now and this weekend it went on flash sale at Gearbest for about $245 ! I had to jump on it :") Sale is over now so glad I ordered when I did.

The Bison looks to be a good deal compared to other r/c buggies in this class but at more affordable price point.

I will be doing a full review as well and some possible mods I have seen soon as my Bison is delivered,can't wait

As I said flash sale is over but the VKAR RACING BISON is still a good deal here https://www.gearbest.com/rc-cars/pp_...?lkid=11487335
