I have been wanting to Review this Aircraft since first seeing it and Banggood was kind enough to send one for Review!
This Mustang looks awesome especially with the paint scheme.
It's called a Mini but I would categorize it as a Micro.
It's made of EPP Foam which should make it very durable.

Test Flight #2 - Nano Rare Bear with a 1020 Motor & 3" Prop

Here is a link to the Video:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tl3FAn7QA34

#GroundControlRC #GlueAndFly #ScratchBuildPlanes #MinimumRC #RareBear

I finally set aside time to replace the stock 8520 Motor with a 1020 Motor.
I was hoping for a greater amount of additional power but after watching this video and a video with the Stock Motor the 1020 Motor provides just a tiny bit more power.
I'll take all the power I can get ;-)

Here is a link to the Playlist which also includes the Build Tutorial Videos:

Here is a link to the Pro PNP Version of this Kit:
https://www.minimumrc.com/f8f-rarebe...cer-p0016.html

*Banggood no longer has the Pro Version, however, you should be able to add another servo for the ailerons to get full 4 channels, this may require a MOD to the fuselage.
Also, the 3 channel comes with a 720 motor but I like the 1020 Motor ;-)

Here is a link to the Video:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eINt-NpnPY0

#GroundControlRC #GlueAndFly #ScratchBuildPlanes #TinyWing450

I thought this Tiny Wing would make for an excellent Micro FPV Wing ;-)
It has several flight modes; 6-axis, 3-axis, and manual.
It's made from EPP Foam which makes it extremely durable.

Let's blow the Dust Off ;-)

The skill level needed for this Parkjet is Intermediate to Advanced.

Well, I took the DHC2 Beaver out for another DustOff Flight and could not get it to go into 3D Mode.
I'll try the spare transmitter than came with the XK Edge Plane and hopefull it's a transmitter issue and not a gyro issue.

Review - Micro Tundra Wheels - Too Cool for Nano Planes ;-)

#GroundControlRC #GlueAndFly #ScratchBuildPlanes

Here is a link to the Video:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wuqTbBip2dQ

I was looking for some small foam wheels to use for front landing gear on my Mini Wings and Mini Parkjets.
I came across these Fat Micro Wheels which are half as wide as they are tall ;-)
The first thing that came to mind when finding these was "Nano Bush Plane" ;-)
It looks like I'm going to have another build this Winter but I just can't help myself ;-)
These wheels range in size from 16mm diameter to 85mm diameter.

DustOff #7 - Glue & Fly Series F22 Mini V2 - What an absolute Blast ;-)

#GroundControlRC #GlueAndFly #ScratchBuildPlanes #DustOff #F22Mini

Here is a link to the Video:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yC3poxk8Et4

Time to relax and have some fun with this Parkjet ;-)
Maybe learn a new trick or two in the process.
I'm amazed at the extremely wide flight envelope this Parkjet has and how stable it is.
When it's time to rebuild this Pakjet I have a couple of changes in mind that will make it even better.
So much fun!

Here's what it cost me to Build this Parkjet ;-)

Ground Control F22 Mini V2 – BNF Build $49.01 | PNF Build $38.42

That's pretty darn Cheap I'd say ;-)

I'd like to see a Factory Plane that inexpensive that can Fly this well ;-)

The skill level needed for this Parkjet is Beginner to Intermediate.
Beginner setup is a 2S Power System with a 6x4 Prop.
Intermediate setup is a 3S Power System with a 6x3 Prop.
It's a great Trainer on a 2S Power System, Fast & Acrobatic with a 3S Power System.

Plans are available to Youtube Subscribers & Patrons!

If you would like a copy of the Plans & Associated Documents send an email to [email protected]
In the Email Subject enter: GFS F22 Mini V2 Plans
We will get them to you as soon as we can.
You're going to love it ;-)

Here is a link to the Video:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=slSDS_noJAk

I had an issue with my Brand New Mobula 7 Power Whoop which has a CrazyBee Flight Controller.
The Flight Controller would reboot during flight about every 10-15 seconds.
This fix took care of this issue ;-)

Review Part1 - Mobula 7 Brushless Micro Quad - 1S-2S

#GroundControlRC #GlueAndFly #ScratchBuildPlanes #Mobula7 #PowerWhoop

Here's a link to the Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wbf_y4WGr9U

Well, I completely wore out my Brushed Tiny Whoop a few Months ago so I decided to get a more powerful Micro Brushless Quad that I could fly indoors as well as outdoors.

The Mobula 7 seemed to fit the requirements and has gotten lots of positive reviews.
I'll list the Specs, things that give me pause, some things that perhaps could have been done better, Tips, Problems & Solutions, as well as some of the Cons I've heard from other reviewers.
I'm way out of practice with Quads so rather than try to impress you with my flying skill I'll show you how easy, or hard, it is to fly this Quad from the perspective of someone that's so out of practice they might as well be a Newbie ;-)

Part 2 will be outdoors on 2S ;-)
Nothing fancy but we'll see how well someone can progress in skill with this Micro Quad.
