Hello there!

I've had this idea for a while now.. But here it is! You (and me) are being challenged here.. How many drones can You fly at the same time??

Anyone can have a go at it.. And so will I

Here are the rules of engagement:
+ you have to fly them with ONE radio.
+ you have to fly them for at least 15 seconds.
+ the multi-rotors can not be physically attached to eachother.
+ the multi-rotors can't have GPS

Here is my kick-off video for this series.. The series itself might continue for Years actually

Fellow pilot,

some of you might have tried the OrangeRX 3-axis stabelisers before.. They have been around for quite a while now. Last year HK released the V2 version of it, and recently they released a identical one but with updates V2.1 firmware.

The real change here is that this one should be able to be used on HS digital servo, where the previous version could not.

Here is my how-to for these stabelisers, and offcourse I'll allso test if they in fact do work with HS Digital servo's!

Hi there people!

I picked up this very nice looking 330-size quadcopter from HiSky.. It comes with a brushless setup and CC3D flight controller..
The version I got is actually the RTF, but there are other configurations available from several vendors..

I ordered mine from Banggood.. Here is a link with reduced price:
http://www.banggood.com/HiSKY-HMX280...13974002015038

In this video I'll show you what comes with that version and what the quad is all about

Hello people

It's time (for me) to do another scratch-build project! (partly because the weather is dreadfull over here :P)
This time it's gonna be a flying wing again BUT this one is going to be flying backwards

This might turn out to be a longer running project because the first versions might not even fly at all..

Here is my kickoff for this project:

And I'll be posting updates on this shortly
