The video was shot at 1080p / 30fps, EIS - on, WDR - on... waiting for a better SD Card to handle 1080p@60fps...

The original 720p cam has been refitted into pill-box and mounted as a "Fixed" ground/deer cam.

The cost of living in "paradise" permeates in pretty much everything around you if you are are a resident in Hawaii. Being born and raised on the Big Island of Hawaii, I really never new what the cost was until I got older AND with the coming of the INTERNET! Until then, you just accepted how things were and what they cost. Until the digital age came about, my only reality was through printed magazines, catalogs, newspapers and tv! As a young modeler, I tried to read all the model magazines that the library and newstands had to offer. That was my modeling world.

Then with the coming of the internet, things changed...a lot! I was no longer limited to what Hawaii had to offer. I didnt have to wait for the latest issues of the model magazines or to get the latest catalogs, I could go online and see the latest and greatest things that were hitting the market! I now had access to what the world has to offer, except for those dreaded words, CONUS and lower 48 ONLY! I am beginning to believe that the word CONUS is actually two words..Con Us!

I have recently started to sell off some of my decades worth of modeling equipment that I feel that I no longer need here on the RCG classifieds. While researching shipping costs on the USPS website, I was surprised to find out shipping via Priority mail costs the same to ship from my zip 96720 to New York 10001 as it would if I shipped from the west coast 90001 to 10001. I haven't tried the reverse but I would...Continue Reading

Very happy to report my smoke lasted over 7 MINUTES (20oz of oil) because I changed muffler and used a Atomizing smoke oil injection nozzle from 'Crankcase'

Go to https://www.flyinggiants.com/forums/...d.php?t=196895 for a thread of his method of SPRAYING oil into the muffler as opposed to POURING oil into the muffler!

No chance yet to fly one of them, but I now have two "new" models for relatively little time, effort and money.

The rebuilt Flyzone SkyFly 2 is ready to rock and roll! Weather, repaving of the club's runway and a major two-week tennis tournament which put the kibosh on an alternate field all came together to keep me grounded, but I hope to take it up on Sunday...if it doesn't rain. The very stiff control surfaces may have led to the demise of the original servos. No problem! I had two nearly new 9g analogs which not only fit, the control arms had the same splines. Hinging the elevator and rudder of the new tail section with CA hinges was easy enough to do and it stands ready for its maiden flight. I even found the original nose wheel in the parts stash. I thought I'd lost it.

Also reborn is a Rotor Concept HPQ1, better known as the LotusRC T380. It was my first big quad, I paid way too much for it, it's been a money pit since then, it's been sitting idle since goodness knows when and that same company has the gall to sell it on Amazon for 400 bucks as I write.

That love/hate relationship really began when the motor driving FETs fell off of the FC like so many rotten teeth. I won't bore you all with details, but it eventually wound up with a new FC from Multirotor Mania and ESCs from Armattan. The motor shafts kept pulling out of the endbells whenever I went to tighten the props, so I paid good money (waaay more than I wanted to spend) to have them pressed back in and secured.

The end result? Quite satisfactory! The PID settings needed attention, especially the proportional since it was constantly over-correcting in hover. Really twitchy. After some tweaks via Cleanflight, it's nearly perfect. The really nice thing is that I now have two models which had some money sunken into them placed back in service.

Pictures to follow.

***TBS Caipi2 just arrived! Pre-orders will begin shipping right away!***

Hey folks, its been awhile but I wanted to let everyone know that we have some crossfire nano rx's still available. I see everyone is out of stock everywhere so if your in need, hit us up as we should be good for a bit longer till our restock order arrives. This is the non-SE version meaning it only comes with the standard rx antenna, not the immortal t. We should have our nano se back soon.

TBS Crossfire Nano Rx:

For those getting ready for the 6s revolution, checkout the pulse 1250mah 75c 6s lipos. At 205g, these are the lightest and best packs so far that we've tested for hv mini quad racing. Also the Xnova lightnings are tearing up the racing scene lately and ar4e one of the best 6s motors when it comes to pure performance. Available now in 1650kv and 1800kv for hv racing or long range applications.

Pulse 1250 75c 6s:

after an hour and a half flight time (and a few crashes )indoors and out ,mostly fpv the x130 is holding up well and so far probably my favourite quad yet (only had a couple)
very similar to the x100 but so much better feel to it, hopefully last longer than 5 days !
changed the camera for one I had (for PAL and slightly better under low light
would definitely recommend one
