The Eachine TD600 is a stackable Video Transmitter that combines an "inline DVR" ( it records on the vehicle ) and a 40Ch video transmitter with SmartAudio !!. The board is a standard 36x36mm board and can easily be stacked along with your FC, ESC's etc. The TD600 is EXTREMELY well made as the photos will show and with all necessary wiring already attached and protected by silicone the only thing you need to do is solder it to your existing equipment. I had mine connected in less than 10 seconds it really is that simple. The icing on the cake is of course the MMcX connector, more and more antennas are produced using this little "Click in" connector , i have been using mine since last year on another model that has had multiple antennas used during testing and the connector is as solid as the day i bought it.

The result of the RTH function . The X7 kept climbing and then zoomed off towards the houses , LUCKILY it hit a tree and that stopped its runaway flight back to China . It laid itself to rest 100+ METRES behind its "power on" location and its supposed home point and 5 yards away from 4 cars. I had ZERO control over the drone and nothing i did would stop it running away.

Durafly Excalibur High Performance 1600mm V-Tail Glider PNF Maiden flight (20 min 50 sec)


Video courtesy of the very famous Captainz Petrincic and Blaz and a link to their very funny Youtube channel. Please use their links so that any revenue via ads is directed towards the pilots https://www.youtube.com/user/petrincic1/videos





Forged for a King in a distant realm, the legendary Excalibur is here.

The most anticipated Durafly release this year, The Excalibur must be flown to be truly appreciated. Innovative design features, such as the cantilever forward swept wing, V-tail tail surfaces, incredibly strong construction and stunning lines.

Just like the legendary sword, Excaliburs strength is paramount. The engineers at Durafly were given their hardest challenge yet, to design a wing that is ultra thin but incredibly strong in EPO foam!

The wing has carefully positioned carbon fiber reinforcement and pre-tensioned glass fiber strips. The fuselage is feature packed with a square carbon fiber tube and glass fiber strips. The V-tail along with control surfaces are reinforced. All these features combine to make the Excalibur a weapon.

Servos are all pre-installed with a whopping 3542 800kv Aerostar brushless outrunner motor up front. 60amp Aerostar brushless speed controller. Two piece removable wing makes assembly fast with wire-free PCB connection between the wing and fuse.

Rule the sky with the Excalibur.

I like my stuff to go FAST and if it will go fast AND carry a camera so much the better, so, when HobbyKing approached and asked if i would like to try the V2 of their 1/8 scale Rc Superbike i of course instantly agreed. In the past i have repaired/upgraded a fair few of the previous generation of Nitro powered aluminium and plastic models but as with everything in our hobby materials and power systems have evolved and Carbon Fibre and Brushless motors have taken over as the main building components allowing powerful but light models to surpass the (relatively) heavy and complicated models of old.
An added bonus of using Carbon fibre and Brushless systems is the reduced cost in manufacturing and this lowering of costs plus the simplicity of using Brushless motors and Lipo's as a source of power has brought what was previously quite a niche product back into the realms of affordable Rc products.
With the complexity and mess of the old Nitro engines gone we can now spend more time doing what we enjoy and the reduced costs means we can buy more

On to the blurb..........

Most already know that i do enjoy "tools" that Work ! and by work i mean screwdriver inserts that dont break off or bend when you try to dig out that last stubborn screw or the screwdriver itself doesnt fall apart when you use it on anything other than foam. There are a multitude of different options available from pound/dollar shop sets that are a gamble on quality ( ive had some good sets and bad ) to mid-priced general sets and all the way up to expensive high quality sets that look very nice but are out of my price range ( doesnt stop me looking ).

My go-to set has been the Daniu 25in1 set in the 3rd post below and it suits me perfectly fine ( because its CHEAP, $4.44 atm ) the Daniu set is contained in a simple imitation leather wallet and the supplied bits are enough to take care of the majority of jobs you would use a mini screwdriver for. More importantly the bits are reliable and quite sturdy and havent bent or chipped even with my usual heavy handed abuse. The Daniu bits are held in the wallet in an angled slot which helps prevent the bits from falling out or coming loose in your pocket. I have had the Daniu set for quite a while now and its still in excellent condition with all bits in tact and i honestly have ZERO complaints about this set so i will use it as a benchmark to gauge the quality and reliability of all future sets.

The Christmas period left me a few £'s in my wallet and having plenty of toys to play with i decided to buy a couple of...Continue Reading

This will be a minor review of the XK A800 mini 4ch "warm liner" stabilised glider, it is worth noting that XK is a branch of WLToys and so during the review i will make some comments regarding the similarities or differences between the two manufacturers .
WLToys are of course a relatively well known brand to most of us and they produced the forerunner to the A800 in the form of the WLToys F959, the F959 was a little limited by its use of only Rudder, Elevator and Throttle but was still quite a nice little summer afternoon time burner for many of us and the availability of low cost spares meant it fit into the purpose of being an easy trainer very nicely. There are many differences between the A800 and F959 but fundamentally they are aimed at the same market with the A800 having a more modern feature in the form of stabilisation.
