Hey folks.... here is a quick review of a nice quad that has amazing features for a nice price (less than $100).

Something that was only a DJI fantasy 5-6 years ago for much more money.

Now this is not a high performance quad, but a nice advanced toy level quad that almost anyone could enjoy... and it takes pretty good video and snaps nice photos.

I like it and would recommend it.

So after buying Mavic on Mondey I finally flew it on the week-end. I took six batteries worth of flight so here are my first impressions:

The good:
  • It flies, it's very docile, catching it by hand and starting from hand is pretty easy, the overall stability is pretty great; controller is decent, though I still find the smartphone part bit awkward, though I understand why DJI do it this way.
  • I use Android phone and I thought of dedicating my old HTC One M7 for this, but it sometimes experiences partial image blackouts and also feels little sluggish. My current HTC One A9 on the other hand seems to be completely OK, so I guess that's what I am going to use.
  • It's cold here and my fingers are freezing after few minutes so I haven't tried anything too wild, like flying into great height or distance, but at about 500 m the signal seems to be rock solid.
  • The setup is quick. I don't even have a good bag yet, but it still far cry from setting up my F550. I look forward to taking this on trips.

The bad
  • Remote controller battery drains fast. As if that wasn't enough, it also charges Android phones. What the hell, DJI! You could easily limit the provided current, but you don't care. I tried to few utilities on my (rooted) M7 to disable charging, but none worked. This sucks. I think the remote can last three batteries, but I am pretty sure there's no way it can make it through the fourth. This is stark contrast to my FrSky Taranis which I charge like... 5 times a year?
  • And now for

I'm currently creating a design brief for an F5J class electric sailplane and would like to ask some questions about what other glider pilots seek from their thermalling flagships.

Some specific constraints I have incorporated include;
- A very compact disassembled size of 100-80x30x20cm in case. (I plan to be able to transport it in bag and on a bicycle.)
- Total wingspan of 3 - 3.8m's
- Total flying weight between 750-1500 grams
- Assembly of the plane should take 5 minutes

After a couple weeks of this design process I will eventually link to a build log.
I'm thinking of a 3-5 piece wing that incorporates a DLG style tail to increase compactness.
This is for my Product Design Tech class, in my last year of school. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
What design features would you like to see in an F5J sailplane?

I inherited 6 RC Planes, tools, parts & related gear. My favorite was an original Carl Goldberg Super Chipmunk. I've already removed the glow motor, mount, tank & old electronics for a fresh electric power plant & modern electrics makeover.

Blade 130S FPV (3 min 11 sec)

I have to say that this is the most fun FPV aircraft I have ever flown.
I used:
I get about 4-5 minute flight times with 450mAH batteries. Take-offs and landings are difficult to say the least. That's where I eat up the most tail blades.

Just thought I would share my TT01 which was bought from Ebay. I completely stripped and rebuilt the chassis added bearings, replaced the plastic drive shaft with a metal one and replaced all the screws with new hex ones, then brought a HPI Dodge Viper Shell, just waiting on some gun metal wheels and trim items (exhausts, wiper blades & wing mirrors). Paints used where Tamiya PS-15 Metallic Red & TS-6 Matt Black.

I want to get the spektrum dx6i but it has to be able to get 2 receivers running at the same time. For my tank one receiver for the top part and one for the turret that way it can spin 360 degrees without stopping. Can it do it? And can I use both sticks to celf center?
