The past couple of days I've been attempting to modify the phantom 2 battery so I can use normal (much cheaper) lipos with it. I think this method shown by Verid1st on YouTube is the best as it doesn't require any modification to the actual drone so normal phantom batteries can still be used.

Phantom 2 battery MOD (15 min 8 sec)

This post is really just a written up version of his method, with a bit more detail about each individual step and some pictures.

Before you start this mod, remember that this is quite a large lipo battery you're dealing with. Read all the instructions and watch verids1st's video before you begin and take each step slowly and carefully, particularly the steps that deal directly with the lipo cells such as removing the case and later removing the cells. If at any point the cells heat up or you can see them swelling immediately put the battery in a fireproof container e.g lipo bag and take it outside. Failure to take care while doing this could cause a fire or at worst an explosion. You are doing this at your own risk, please don't blame me if it goes wrong

Also, I've made up most of the names for the parts of the battery so just in case you don't know what I'm on about at any point, below is a labelled picture.

1. Pull the cap off the battery. Get your thumb under the edge and just pull hard until the glue breaks and the cap comes off. Be careful not to lose the button.

2. Cut round the seam of the battery case using a scalpel. Do...Continue Reading

A couple of weeks ago I was sent the new eachine e012 from banggood to test and review. I've spent far too long playing  with it, so now I've got round the the review here's what I think of it.

Although it looks a lot like a tiny whoop/inductrix with the ducted fan prop guards it really is quite a bit smaller, more like a hubsan q4 or cx10. I think this is the perfect size for flying indoors as it doesn't feel too confined even in a small room. You wouldn't really want to fly it much outside unless there is absolutely no wind as not only does it get out of sight quickly but it is quite hard to control in the wind (although it does put up a respectable fight; it's better in the wind than I thought it would be). It has smaller motors than the inductrix but due to its low weight, it still has plenty of power. This is helped further by the suprisingly large battery - 200mah 1s, which also gives it a respectable flight time of around 5 minutes of fast flying. The battery in the e012 is replaceable unlike many similar quads which is very useful, although it is a bit fiddly getting the battery into the clip. I found I had to first plug the battery in and then slide it into the clip as when the battery is in, it covers over the plug socket. This is a bit annoying as it makes it inconvenient to turn the quad off however it is worth it for having a replaceable battery.

Another thing that makes the e012 perfect for flying around the house is its durability. It is made out of

I had an empty space in a shelf and I needed somewhere to store some of my small planes so I made the hanger hangar
I'm listening out for the crunch as it all come down though...
