I'll share my build videos here, and I'll keep the first post updated with the most recent.

Lots of people say to find a formula and stick to it, but I love building new quads with different parts and seeing how they perform. I think it's fun to see how cheap parts perform, and sometimes you will find a fantastic deal. I've been surprised more than once.

Here is the most recent build I've done.

This is a cheap camera available on Banggood. It has a very wide angle lens and records true 1080p30 video. It is smaller than a GoPro session and very light. I think it's great option for 130-150mm quads, and would make for a good practice camera on any quad, so you don't have to risk an expensive one.

After I received my Topsky F7x FPV goggles, I made this video to comment on how I perceived all the complaints made by people about them. I found them to be quite exaggerated. I have been using these goggles since I got them, and I love them.

I have since received an Eachine Pro58 module, which fits in the goggles like it was made for them, and with new firmware on the module, the image and DVR recordings are significantly improved. I will be making a few more videos concerning the Pro58 module in the goggles and the DVR when I can get some free time and I will post them here. Subscribe or post in this thread to be notified when I post them.

A quick and to the point review I did of the Gofly-RC CP90 quadcopter.

The frame of this makes it very durable and resistant to crashes, and it flies very well on 3s lipos. There is an updated version of this quadcopter available, and I think it is definitely worth considering.
