Well with the recent success of my first wing, the divinity II I'm hooked. To me wings are one of the most enjoyable aircraft to fly as they have no protruding bits such as a fuselage or tail section to break away in a less than perfect meeting with a solid object, (ie..the ground)!! They are a blast to fly and can be as aerobatic or docile as you wish. The are excellent platforms for payloads, cameras, or lights for night flights.

I'v just completed an FPV49 designed by FPVTrond. (search youtube for many of his beautiful videos) I'm super proud of how she's turned out. I will eventually be using the full FPV setup in this wing and have lovingly named her the VIEWFINDER. I've set it up for now with a dummy Boscam HD19 in the nose. (A wooden block version of the cam weighted the same as the original) I've also modified the original design by adding 2 extra layers in the center to allow for a covered battery and electronics tray, and my own wing tip design. The 55amp speedy is neatly tucked away behind the bay with the heatsink exposed for cooling.

I've just recently purchased my DX6I. I love it and I find it very functional for What I fly....BUT It looks like what it is.... A cheap radio!! So I have done a few upgrades to improve its comfort and usability. I will probably add a few more soon

1. I had some black 2mm adhesive neoprene and decided to cover the handgrips on both sides.

2. I also used a carbon fibre decal material to cover the area around the screen and the antenna base section.

3. I didn't like the look of the all chrome switches sticking out everywhere so they were fitted with custom covers made from neoprene.

4. I've now added a power indicator, a green led with a chrome bezel in the center or the...Continue Reading
