Halloa guys

yes sir.. I've got me a couple of new quads in, and the concept of them is more interesting in itself then just these quads.. These are 4-inch quads, and that is obviously nothing new.. These aren't the powerhouses we've come to expect though, and I think it's good to at least Try this approach

Hi there RC people

It can be a lot of fun to buy / order up a ready made RC, and go out & fly / drive it right away On the other hand great satisfaction can be found in selecting all components yourself and then build the craft
This allso gives you more insight into how things really work (and how they do Not work :P)

The objective in this project is to build a smooth Freestyle FPV quadcopter. My last build was more of a Powerhouse.. This time I want the quad to have a more liniar power-output..

This series will be quite a nr. of video's and I'll try to put as much info into the individual video's as possible. This allso means the project won't be ready in just a few days as well offcourse

Let's first have a look all the components for this build

Halloa guys

I've got me a new 3D printer in a few days ago, and got right into building it.. Well I should say I got right into shooting video's about it :P
This (new) Ender-3 is quite similar to the hugely popular CR-10 but it's footprint is a bit smaller, as is it's price

I will be doing a good nr. of video's on this printer! Here is my build-report of it (sorry.. long video)
