Today I had what could of been a horrible mishap with 3s lipos Floureon 1500 mah and a Venom dual Charger , I Charged 4 of them up at 2.6 amp to go out for a couple quick flights, Something came up,,plans changed , and as always I set the charger to store my 4 lipos about 3 hrs after they were charged ,,as I don't like to keep them up on a full charge if I'm not gonna fly them.. The first 2 stored fine , plugged in the next 2 and to be clear these lipos only have about 6 Cycles each at most no crashes no lose wires,, I'm anal on my connectors ,,, 30 minutes into the Storage mode I began to smell Smoke in the house ,, In my hangar Room the charger was on a top shelf and with planes hanging on the ceiling 30 seconds more I believe I would not of been able to control the fire !! Still so uncertain on what it could of been , I bought that Charger new ,, when they first came out and used it numerous times but if you study the pictures of the Charger it appears it started from within the Charger itself Because the lipo had just started burning when I turned the corner ,,,Any feedback on what might of caused this I'd like to hear ideas... I never thought this would happen to me ! But luckily I caught it prior to my house burning down , The bad thing I'm out a Charger , burned a hole in my carpet , the Shelf it was on was a loss, and Brand new Eflite shoestring got a little Grilled that was hanging above the blaze !!! O let me mention the worst a Pissed off Wife lol !!

I recently had the pleasure of joining the guys from the RC Roundtable Podcast, back in December. Fitz, Terry and Lee are great guys! Their podcasts are informative and discussions fun. Educating and sharing their passion for the hobby is what these guys bring, and their podcasts are a must listen.

Does it look familiar? No, this is not the DJI Mavic Pro. He's an unapologetic imitator with a considerably lower price.

If you're stuck in this seemingly inexhaustible deadly grip of winter right now, flying a drone is probably the last thing you think about. But better climate will arrive so why not take advantage of a drone agreement while you can?

Have you heard about the DJI Mavic Pro, the $ 1,000 quadcopter that everyone wants but few can afford? Guess what? There is a clone For a limited time, Rcmoment.com has the Obtain F803 for $ 347.99. That is after applying the promotion code RCF803 in the payment process. (Make sure you have selected the white or black model, the other costs even less, but lacks the remote control, which I consider essential)

The Obtain F803 looks and feels very similar to the Mavic Pro: metal chassis, folding arms , intelligent flight modes, more than 20 minutes of flight time. Does it fly the same? I do not know that yet. It's too cold and too windy to try it. I can say that its built-in camera has a maximum of 1080p instead of 4K, and both the remote control and the application are different. A great feature that is missing: Obstacle of evasion.

Got the Cub out for more flights today. Put an APC prop on it and a 30 amp ESC. Enjoyed the day. I am going to put a .10 Power up in it. Think that will be the last mod. It's a great little flyer!

I am late to the party on getting a Flyzone Seawind but am pleasantly surprised by how well it handles in the Air, on the ground and on water. It's also surprisingly easy to grease her in at a slow pace (1:45). Well, just see for yourself...

As I've been growing in knowledge & making mistakes I've had to adjust my builds.

I was having issues getting my GPS & MAG running. I tried doing the pull up resistor mod to 2 different GPS puck without success.

I decided to remove my F4V3 board & install my F7V2 board into the first build quad in order to see if I had a FC problem or just bad pucks.
It turns out I believe I have smoked both my pucks doing the Mods.

While doing the board swap, I added the Run-Cam Pro2, Video TX to the quad.

I have new DJI pucks ordered for the builds along with another F7 FC.

I also have 2 sets of BL-Heli 32, 30A D-shot ready ESC's in my parts box.

Once I get all my goodies installed & configured I'll be ready for test flights.
I can't hardly wait.

Hey Everyone!

I'm new to RC & Quads.. I have an electronics background, Good with all the assembly, fabrication, soldering, schematics, etc...

I wanted to start a hobby that expanded my electronics knowledge & one that I could share/teach my kids & have a ball at the same time. RC Quads seemed to be the obvious choice.

I am currently building: Completed / not flying yet

250mm All Carbon Nighthawk
EMAX MT2204/2300KV motors(came with kit)
12A BL Heli OneShot 125 ESC's (came with kit)
FrSky X9D-plus
X4RBS / SBus
Matek PDB
Floureon 4S 45C 1500mAh
Omnibus F4 V3 Pro FC
M8N GPS w/ MAG
Running iNAV 1.8

I wanted to build this Quad & learn as much as possible to get my feet wet & learn to fly.
I have a large yard & a giant open field across the street as an all line of sight playground.
I am having issues getting the GPS & MAG working properly. I need to resolve these issues before I can get off the ground. I'm thanking everyone in advance for any help & knowledge I can gain here. I also apologize up front for any dumb questions I have. I'm positive there will be some.

I also have a second build: Incomplete

250mm Nighthawk ( same kit as above )
X4RBS / SBus
OmniBus F7 V2
iNAV 1.8
M8N w/MAG

Adding:
Run-Cam Eagle Pro
Mach 2 Video Transmitter.

Please feel free to question, comment or bash.

I have a zmr 250 frame with emax 2204 motors and I was wondering what motors would be good to upgrade and replace the ones I have and I like emax. I was thinking the 2306 race motors but I didnít know if they would fit on my frame and I heard they have a lot of thrust and are reliable motors. If anybody has any ideas on motors that would be great!

I got a hull from a friend. Electrics were dead so I threw in some leftovers. Tested in the bathroom sink. Water everywhere. Promising! Since the black hull and orange canopy looked incredibly toyish and plasticky I did my own Pollock with tape and paint. I broke most painting rules
