Here is another evolving platform project that's a little interesting . Not much to say about it, all specs are the same on the EVOLVE 02 ,just another platform that is catching dust. One thing I added was installing my RC3 on this for aerial fun video and I guess the video was just fine.
By looking at the pictures ,all I did was move the whole motor and yaw assembly to the dismantled tower quad frame ,connected all the electronics and that's it, nothing special....just another fun build.

Lastly , the name NINELEVEN was to remember all the people that died during that day....and it's the day I started this project.

Here are some close-up pix .
Maiden video will be added next.

Flip32 AIO F4 Helheim Flight Controller Review (5 min 12 sec)

A new design with six motors, anhedral in the wings and dihedral in the tail.

Update: Turns out that 6 motors just makes the plane too heavy and slow. It flew fine but the anhedral made it too unstable, especially turning at slow speeds.

Hi everybody,

my name is Matteo, I'm from Rome, Italy, and I’d like to share my story with you. Last christmas my girlfriend bought me my first toy drone, a JXD 509G. I was really happy and I started to play with it. Unfortunately I broke it soon and i bought another toy, a SYMA X8G and I really enjoyed it, making first pretty good video with its camera.
Then I started to watch lots of videos on youtube of professional racing drone pilots and I fell in love with this hobby and I began to fly with a racing drone. In March I purchased an entry level racing drone, an Eachine Wizard X220, that seemed amazing for me, like the real racing drones that I had watched on youtube, and I started to fly and learn to pilot in First Person View.
I got into the hobby more deeply and I started to buy new stuff: frames, motors, flight controller...and build new models on my own. Now I have to different quads and I’m trying to improve my abilities.
I opened a Youtube channel to monitor my progress and share my passion with other people!

This is my channel, please subscribe if you enjoyed my story and if you want to watch some FPV!

Lipo Fires Are Real, you can see also lot of warnings about lipo charging and storage problem, when the lipo was over charged and caught on fire, people even suffer in huge property lose due to lipo fires, so the lipo safe bag is a good protection for charging lipos, and storage of lipos, to prevent the flame fire.

Recently HOBBYMATE bring to Amazon a new Lipo bag, using completely new fire-proof material that rarely used on the market, unlike those old material which may also cause the fire if the lipos are in real danger during charging or storage. After our bench test using a flaming lighter and try to burn both the inside prevent layer and the outside surface, it does not even change the surface, except the black smoke imprint

Finally, the bidirectional zipper and strong velcro make the lipos inside as a sealed space, which block the oxygen maximally, no matter if you are charging a lipo or more lipos or you store them inside, you are not worry about them anymore, very useful to keep the surroundings safe and sound either at home, or in the car or in the basement

it is available from amazon.com, prime eligible

Thanks for stopping by, comments welcome

Well, here is another one I'm getting ready for the St George Electric Fun Fly. With the 2 Park 480's and that thin wing, it won't be breaking any speed records but should scoot along pretty good.

Item Name: ARIA 35A

Weight: 4.37g(exclude the wire)

Input voltage: 3-6s Lipo

Size(mm)L*W: 32*16*5

Firmware : BLHeli_32

Features:

With 32bit ARM Cortex MCU STM32F051 48MHZ micro processor, throttle 2048 resolution ratio,strong anti-interference capacity.

Built-in sensor can be reaction of temperature,output power,output current etc,also programmable for protection.

Support Blheli_32 firmware,can use the signal wire to upgrade the firmware or change the configuration on line.

Current Meter to help show current indication of OSD

With USB linker can be programmable throttle setting like support positive and negative,two way mode,FPV 3D mode,motor speed,braking ,PWM frequency, inlet angle speed setting, onboard RGB LED for customize color, Beep etc.

It use the self-adaption control system,can go automatic with the all kind of the motor in the market,at the mean time it support up to 500HZ PWM,oneshot 125,oneshot 42,Multishot and Dshot 150/300/600/1200.

With special optimize in multi-axis,the motor can launch smoother in a good throttle curve, fast response,great power, and highly support the multi-axis,fixed-wing and helicopter.

The twisted-pair signal wire can lower the crosstalk inside cooper wire when it transfer,which will make the flight more stable.

MCU hardware,Driver circuit ,Mosfet will come with double voltage protection.

To adopt the new process MOSFET of low internal resistance, will help increase resistance to flow. Also,the professional MOS driver chip makes the best efficiency.

Mosfet is covered with aluminum sheet for cooling,which can bring more efficiency and stability.

With special process of 6 layer thicken PCB will lower resistance, small calorific value and bigger impact resistance current.Nice optimize layout of the components and parts makes a smaller size,lighter weight and easy to build.

What do you think about this esc? very glad to hear from your feedback about that.

A man donated a Navy Trainer 31.5" wingspan foam remote control airplane that he got out of a tree! He donated it to the Assistance League Thrift Shop where I volunteer in toys. Since I know nothing about RC airplanes I took it to the local Hobby Town for advice. They said to try posting on this site about it. I just want to sell it to someone who can use it. They said that it is a T28 Trojan and has an AR600 Spectrum receiver, 20 amp speed, control 1000 mah 3 cell lipo, 4 channel. There is not remote controller and it needs a 9-6 prop, also needs ahloron installation and linkage. The guy at Hobby Town said it is in good shape but needs these things. I am in San Marcos, CA. If you have any ideas of where to sell this for cheap to someone who knows how to use it, please advise.

Hey guys , I'm pretty new at all this stuff . I'm in desperate need of help . I have built a lobster style / Downeast work boat and having hard time powering it . I had bought a boat from harbour fright and basically took the internals out and put them in my boat . The boat will run but it's too big for the set up . I'm having a really hard time getting this in motion for there is no hobby stores within 2 hours . I need help on the motor ,collet , shaft prop , rudder , servo , controller and transmitter . Pretty much the entire thing internally . I am open for nitro or battery . Just need some help ! The boat is 22 inches long by 10.5 wide . Made out of fiberglass hull is about 4 to 5 pounds . Thanks !

Hello,
Im curious if anyone knows when betaflight will have the omnibus F7 for betaflight 3.2. I believe I saw something somewhere that said by October which is fine because that when I get my googles apparently the EV 100's I pre-ordered (a week before bg even released) from a different site than bg, are now apparently back ordered until October. So i mean it sort of works but I would like to get my quad all flashed and set up with bl heli suite 32 and betaflight 3.2 if possible. First quad and I apprciate any help.
