I just got my EV100. It probably won't look this way for long. I'm pretty good at voiding warranties and this will not be an exception to that. My plans are to install a Realacc FS style diversity receiver, with remote secondary receiver. I'm going to try to use the existing antenna mounts, but I'll see how much room I have to work with, once I crack into the case. I might have to warm up the 3D printer for this job.

The answer is no, you can't align the rear wheels. They're doomed to wear out from being toed in. The tires can't be removed. H King sells an alternative set of wheels with removable tires. The rear wheels can't be swapped with the front wheels.

Hey there guys, last night after some long thought about it I decided to create a patreon page for myself and my flying and the progression of my channel. My goal out of this is to put it right back into my content that I will be creating for you guys! Even working a full time job on top of my freestyle flying and my current sponsor from gens ace/tattu it can be hard to produce the quality content I want with the limited equipment I have. So please consider supporting me via patreon!


Wether the support comes in from you guys or not the content will continue to come dont worry! But this will allow me to be able to progress into proper content and the goals I want to reach with it much faster then just what my full time job allows me to support.

Thanks for reading guys and please check out my latest videos!!! Ill give you a little hint at whats to come, 5 inch chameleon first flight video!!!

Thanks guys!!!

Bought it in February and finally got to the assembly table this month! Maidan went well......but it is true......the Mini Talon not likes but LOVES a long Fast approach! Just some fine tuning, attach the pan & tilt set up and it will be out some distance on a regular basis.

Halloa people

for an upcoming project I needed me a Slightly smaller FPV camera, and offcourse I could have just gone with the RC Swift Mini.. While looking that one up though, I came across a new contender in the arena of FPV cams: the Caddxx Turbo S1.. They claim it to be better in several aspects, so I decided to compare the 2

Option nr.1: the Runcam Swift Mini

Option nr.2: the Caddx.us Turbo S1

And this is what things look like side by side:

Slip ring is used to connect two relatively rotated 360 and current or signal transmission components, there is a common number of channels 1-36 channels. With the continuous development of industry, equipment is more and more complex, the number of slip ring channel demand increased, multi-channel slip ring can meet this demand.

JINPATs LPC Capsule Slip ring channel can up to 125 wires, the number of channels LPT through bore slip ring channel can up to 300 or even higher, while the power ring, signal ring, hybrid signal, fiber and hybrid signal, high-frequency signal is mixed with the power can be achieved.

JINPAT has been producing fiber optic rotary joint for over ten years, is famous for its quality products, which are produced not only in the domestic slip ring also in the world to get many customers, the products are exported to Europe, America, Japan and other developed countries.

Multi-channel optical fiber is widely used, but because of the difficulty of processing and complex design, which is very expensive, many industries and fields due to budget exigencies. Cannot use the multi-channel fiber optic slip ring.

Bad news - For me !
My order for the WL toys 977 was cancelled ( I was really looking forward to flying this one ) Shuzbutt !

The good news !
Who does not love motor tools ? I love them ...
But there has always been one issue that gets my claw ! The inserts for drill bits and tools ..
They never seem to be just the right size .. Especially for drill bits .

I was on banggood just cruising all the goodies they sell when my eye spied this motor tool with a chuck .. ( A Chuck )
I just had to have it ( for review purposes mind you ) .. Because I love motor tools .
Currently on back order ...

Now I haven't seen a motor tool with a chuck before , this is a first for me so excuse me if I'm a little like a 8 year old waiting for Xmas . So hopefully some time in October I will have a really cool motor tool to play with ( eeeer I mean review ) .

This will test the performance of a straight leading edge versus the swept wing. Also will have the directly under wing mounted motors. I've been speculating if this is the single factor why the C-1 outperforms other versions in vertical manouvers.

So another of my hobbies is DJ'ing and mixing! Some good stuff to fly to if you are into dance music
