A quick update on sales leading into the weekend. Quality over quantity this time:

First up the emax hawk 5 is only $209 using the code GB$THRCEH5. This is thebest price it has ever been.



Next the FRSKY Taranis QX7 is only $99 here. I believe this is that lowest price as well.



Lastly AKK currently have a VERY good sale on their already low prices. I higly recommend their VTXs for their featureset and price, especially in this sale

I've just finished the review of the AKK FX3 Ultimate VTX and it is fantastic. It's hard to believe this is only $18 ($16 at the AKK sale at present)

My full review is here:

http://quadifyrc.weebly.com/reviews/...-vtx-available

Key Features I've grabbed from the review are below:

Features as listed
The product I am reviewing today is the AKK FX3 Ultimate which builds on the AKK FX3 as mentioned above. Key features are:
  • 25mW, 200mW, 400mW and 600mW power switchable - a 200mW increase in maximum power from the regular FX3
  • OSD configuration using Smart audio - it has smart audio and yes it is compatible with all versions of betaflight
  • 7-24V input with 5V output - up to 5 direct input or of course any voltage if you power via FC
  • Support Pit Mode - very low power output that is useful for setting up at races.
  • One button frequency and power setup - Support if you do not use smart audio
  • MIC - same as the FX3 however audio is much improved (will get to that soon)
  • MMCX and UFL connectors. It has both!!!

AKK has a sale on at the moment that is well worth checking out - they generally roll around about once every 3-4 months. Clicking on the banner below will take you straight to it.

This review has been written by a young friend of mine who is looking to contribute to my website more regularly.

This is his experience as a relative newcomer to sub 2" micro quads, specifically those suitable for indoor flight. Full extensive review is here:

My first and arguably favourite micro quad has been updated. The Leader 120 was an extremely popular micro brushless quad that defined the 2.5" category and largely killed off 2" with an improvement in speed, efficiency and handling. The Leader 120 was launched in August 2017 and although still relevant is looking dated with the AIO CMOS camera vtx limited to 25mW and motors that are targeted towards 2s or 3s at a slight stretch. I have multiple reivews of the quad and props here and of improvements here

The new leader 3/3SE addresses the camera with a Caddx Micro F1, 25mW - 600mW vtx with smart audio and moves to a larger motor at lower kV that is capable of 3s and 4s. Additionally it jumps to 3" to allow for the extra weight this brings - approximately 20g extra to move to 87g. This means that power to weight and disc loading is kept similar so feel should be similar to the original with big improvements in FPV and torque.

The new leader 3 retains the classic frame design that served it so well with the allowance for the now standarf 19mm wide micro cams. I have a review sample on the way and am very much looking forward to this. Preorders are up now from $127 for a canopy-free PNP to $137 with canopy and receiver (FRSKY, FLYSKY or Spectrum).

Did you know the Leader 120 micro quadcopter by Full Speed RC is almost a year old? A lot has changed in this time including improvements to specification but this quadcopter is still relevant today especailly with some considered modifications. The link below is a summary is all I have modded and improved over this time without loosing track of its lightweight heritage.

I've just completed a comprehensive initial review of the Hawk 5 focusing in on stock betaflight settings, initial flights, recommended changes and all the parts available. This is the best RTF quad I've ever flown with the tune to match.

This is currently in stock at Gearbest the time of writing (4 July)
