-silicone hotend sock
-borosilicate glass bed
-new springs
-heat insulation
-stepper motor damper
-TL smoother
-Noctua silent fans
-metal extruder
-Mean Well power supply

This one is actually better than expected! It has enough torque for all the drone stuff I'm doing. Recommended!

Got me this FPVcycle Edition of the Caddx ant lite. Attention! Mine came with swapped 5V/GND cables! I like the FPV feed quality. For around 12$ you can't complain!

Gaoneng GNB27 lipo connector (2 min 2 sec)

Here is Gaoneng's new lipo connector for tinywhoops and toothpicks. It's supposed to increase conductivity over the PH2.0 connector and, thus, performance and flight time. I'm using it on my 1s Babytooth. Only trade off over the PH2.0 is the higher weight of about 0.8g for a pair of male and female plugs.

My new standard prop on my TBS Source One. The drone is way smaller so I can easily pack it in my backpack. For my flying skills the prop is good enough!

Took me some time to set the Beitian BN220 GPS sensor up. I made this video so you can save some time. It's awesome to have on your OSD data like speed , altitude and distance and direction to home. Love it!

Happymodel Mobula6 HD unboxing + test (2 min 1 sec)

Here is another happy(model) Mobula 6 HD owner. Overall I was surprised by the HD footage I received from the onboard DVR. IMO there are only 2 major shortcomings: battery life is very short (below 2min on Gaoneng 350mAh) and some fail safes with Frsky D16.

I'm using this ultralight yet powerful Eachine Nano VTX on my 3inch whoop. I like the vtx but the Nano 3 cam I ve used is not well suited for outdoor flying.
