Update instructions:

Unplug power from ProDVR. Put micro SD card into card reader and connect it to the computer. Extract CRESFW.BIN file into root folder of the SD card. Put micro SD card into ProDVR. Plug in the power. ProDVR led will start to flash. First slower then faster then slower. Wait about 1 min until the LED will turn off. Don't hurry and don't unplug power too early!

MJX BUGS 5W 5G WIFI GPS drone FULL REVIEW (15 min 23 sec)

The MJX BUGS 5W is the latest addition to the MJX RC: the Bugs 5w is a very interesting and complete drone, brushless motors, GPS, compass, gyroscope, 1080p camera and 5g wifi, making it an entry level semi professional gps drone.

Thanks to the GPS and the 1080p camera the Bugs 5W enters the right in the ranking of the best echeap drones: thanks to WD10203 coupon you can buy it from TOMTOP by clicking this link for about 130 €, the lowest market price. The coupon is also valid for other versions with more batteries.

The 1080p camera produces really excellent videos and photos saved in the sd card installed on the drone or alternatively on the smartphone.

Remember that the drone transmits FPV video via 5G wifi so if you have an incompatible smartphone, you have to get one that supports this frequency: thanks to the 5G wifi, the video transmission reaches up to about 200 meters while the drone control via radio control, arrives well over 400 meters.

Also thanks to the GPS, there are several interesting functions available such as the ORBIT MODE, the FOLLOW ME and the possibility to carry out autonomous missions using a map and POI.

In short, a very interesting gps drone to be considered for future purchases.

Warlark Pro 85 is some time old, but you can get it on offer for about 80 € with a Frsky, Flysky or DSMX receiver. The Tiny Whoop is with 2S Lipo what makes it so interesting. With 2S power it's much faster and more aggressive when flying than a 1S Tina Whoop. Ok, the weight of 50g is of course more than a micro Tiny Whoop with 20g.

A quick note that it is possible to use 14500 batteries which can give you more options when there is limited availability of 18500s

Better yet for my fellow Kiwis and Australians I've found an option at Bunnings for less than US$7 to get you started. I've done something of a writeup here plus a budget option for charging with your standard lipo charger.

Gets to be a bit of a job of work to follow someone's posts on how they worked through building Gary's plywood sailboats.
What follows in not in order of work date but just topics that some may find some value from. Many have since been modified as I gain experience with two schooners and two sloops.
Feel free to comment or ask me about anything I've written (PMs are fine), sometimes it takes a bit of clarification.
As Ned Kelly said as they slipped the noose around his neck , "Such is life".

To kick off..

Here is how I've gone about making my latest. It is pretty much standards procedure but may have some aspects of interest to some of you.
Fin box construction ideas.

Select the best quality ply for this if your sheet is not uniformly prime all over.
Cut the pair of sides exactly to the plan.
It is prudent to make a fiberboard template of the fin in the same thickness to build the fin box around and to include the locking holes. This template makes marking the aluminum precisely when making the keel itself. I strongly recommended this template. It will be also used to line up the fin box in place, vertically before fixing into place.
The inner surfaces need to be coated with a durable, 100% waterproof coating which is epoxied fiberglass matting.
Matting is available on hobby king in various grades, I use either Reading
