Review of FLYFOX from HOBBYCOOL - 110mm, 2mm ARM, 3K CARBON FIBER, FPV RACING BNF DRONE Fly Fox

This is my first drone from HobbyCool, a company in China which deals with all kinds of RC hobby products.




FLYFOX 2nd flight - HOBBYCOOL - 110mm, 3K CARBON FIBER, FPV RACING BNF DRONE Fly Fox (2 min 44 sec)



This is the cleanest build I have ever seen. As if Swiss Watchmakers were building this quad. Everything is so neat and all wires are perfectly tucked in the stack. I am really impressed by the build quality. Please see these details:

Review of Eachine Lizard105S FPV Racing Drone BNF Omnibus F4SD 28A Blheli_S ESC 720P DVR 5.8g 25/200mW VTX 4S (beta-reviewers sample)



This is beta-reviewers sample of Lizard105S, mean looking 86g machine from Eachine running 4S. Frame with vertical arms and side support reinforcement looks really complicated but also aggressive.
I thought Lizard95 with its 66g on 3S was crazy fast and more than enough, but, fortunately, enthusiasts from Eachine taught differently and designed more feature packed product Lizard105S, the successor of 95. I hope it will outperform 95 one of which my review is HERE.


Lizard105S looks beautiful. I love aggressive appearance of this quad and its color scheme.
Bind to my transmitter and quick in-house hoover maiden flight went OK. Test flight to follow, so stay tuned.

Review of Eachine Beecore Upgrade V2.0 Brushed F3+OSD Flight Control Board For Inductrix Tiny Whoop E010 E010S

My Beecore V2.0 FC just came. The first bind to Taranis and flight test went well.
Its almost plug n play. I connected motors and soldered power lead for an initial test that went great (I only had to adjust ch order and arming switch, all other is default).
Later I soldered FPV cam&VTX combo which I had laying around from my Lizard95 as I changed original one for SpeedBee SEC.




Eachine Beecore V2.0 Brushed Flight Control Board is a new upgraded version which integrated Betaflight OSD and MPU6000 at SPI bus. The new version also integrated 2.4G receiver with 3 versions to choose(FRSKY/FLYSKY/DSMX). It's the best flight controller for indoor brushed quadcopter (BeeDuctrix / Tiny Whoop / Inductrix setups/Eachine E010 E010C E010S ect.).
