EDIT-6/12/2019 Currently available and on sale for $169.99 here.

After using the Creality Ender 2 3D printer for nearly a year, and being very happy with the overall performance, and quality of the printer, it was time for an upgrade. See my time with the excellent Ender 2 here.

I wanted a new printer that would be of at least equal, if not greater quality than my Ender 2, and something that had a larger build area, but still had a heated build plate, yet remained affordable. Enter the Ender 3. The Ender 3 is one of the new printers for 2018 from Creality3D. This printer has a 220mm x 220mm x 250mm print area, a heated build plate, the popular MK10 extruder, and arrives with most of the assembly completed for you. I had mine from the box, to ready to print, in just over an hour.

I just built my Ender 3 yesterday, and have only done a few prints on it so far, but I am very happy to say that it has exceeded my expectations. I am amazed that such a nice printer can be had for under $200

This will be more of a log than a review, as I will share my prints, and experiences with the printer over the course of the next few months. My Ender 2 proved to be a very reliable machine. I did hundreds of prints, and for nearly 6 months the printer ran continually without a hiccup. I look forward to seeing if the Ender 3 proves to be as reliable. It has already proven to me that it is a solid performer, that requires very little effort to assemble and start using. So far my...Continue Reading

Eachine has been bringing some excellent RC models to the market over the past few years. Some of their drones have been really big hits with beginners, and expert pilots alike. Today we are going to be taking a look at one of their new offerings the EX2H.

The EX2H is a complete ready to fly package that includes the brushless drone with 1806 1800kv motors, 2.4ghz radio transmitter with weak signal, and low battery telemtery, 7.4v 2s 1800mah LiPo battery, charger, and a 1080p HD camera for taking aerial videos, and pictures. You also get a set of prop guards, a set of spare props, and an 8gb micro SD card for the camera. The only thing you will need to get up and flying are 4 AA batteries for the radio.

Many of you will recognize the style, and design of this quadcopter, as it is very similar to the MJX Bugs series of multi rotors. It may even be a rebrand of an MJX model. Regardless, it is a very nice drone, that has a high quality look, and feel to it.

The EX2H is a very stable flyer that performs well in altitude hold mode, or in pro mode (no altitude hold). There is a switch on the transmitter that makes it very easy to select which mode you want to fly in. There is also two different speed rates, that can be used by pressing a button on the transmitter. In high speed mode the quad is quite sporty and capable of some pretty fast speeds, and makes it capable of flying in some pretty windy conditions.

Whether you are a beginner pilot, a pilot looking to take...Continue Reading

Lula Toys 8807HD-G RTF Mini Review. Awesome $24 Beginners Camera Drone with WiFi FPV.

The 8807HD-G is a folding drone with a style, and appearance heavily inspired by the DJI Mavic. This great flying package offers WiFi FPV, Voice Control, and G-Sensor Mode. This is a complete ready to fly package that includes everything needed to start flying except for 4 AA batteries for the remote.

All camera functions can be controlled via the APP that is available in the Google Play Store for Android users, and in the APP store for Iphone users. Thanks to its folding design this quadcopter is very compact, and easy to travel with. When unfolded you still have a decent 250mm size drone that is incredibly stable, and very easy to learn how to fly with. Thanks to its 3 different speed modes it is also a drone that you can grow with as your piloting skills improve.

Check out the pics and stay tuned for flight video, and footage from the on board camera coming soon.

The drone is currently on sale and available in the USA warehouse here for only $23.99 with free expedited shipping to the Con US, and is also available in the international warehouse here for $39.99
