Field preparation is one of the most essential part of your rc flight career. From Field box to baseball cap and bug spray bottle, you just simply can't miss any of 'em. Let Joseph show ya how this is done with his casual field setup and detailed explanations.

I Just received the Evolution3D CrystalSky Mavic Mounting Kit



After a few hours playing I'm really impressed with this bracket tbh it's perfect for me, mounts both the 7.85 and 5.5" models in 2 positions depending on your preference, has adjustable tilt and is quick and easy to fit.

The Bracket

Evolution3D specialise in 3D printed parts and as a printer owner I can honestly say the print quality is 1st class, these brackets are extremely well made and it's a great design, every part of this kit that's not metal is printed and it's all solid and well designed.

There are 4 parts in the kit

The MJX Bugs 2 is the next , well , i say next but the numbering sequence some manufacturers use is mind boggling , quadcopter from manufacturers MeiJiaXin Toys , the Bugs 2 is available in two models , the B2C which is a brushless quadcopter sporting a 1080p camera with onboard recorder and GPS adding position hold and return to home functions as well as altitude hold and various "failsafe" modes which will automatically initiate a Return To Home command and the B2W which adds an FPV via WiFi component which is needed for the positioning of video or photographs.
Following on from their very popular "Bugs 3" the Bug2 B2C and B2W has a redesigned hard plastic shell compared to the Bugs 3 soft flexible body and comes with LED lit short clear mounts under the motors instead of the 3's long legs. The transmitter is similar to the Bugs 3 but obviously adds the extra functionality of the GPS and onboard video recording. The Bugs 2 battery is pretty much identical to the Bugs 3 version with the addition of an end cap which locks the battery in to the Bugs 2 internal bay , however the Bugs 3 battery fits perfectly and all that is needed is something to secure the battery in place, i have already modified mine so that i can use other batteries , proprietary batteries are sometimes useful but mostly theyre just a pain.

Then it arrived. It was a brick compared to the gopro. Something would have to be done to protect the lenses on a vehicle. It didn't output JPEG photos. Its timelapse movies were all H265 files. Its MTP implementation barely worked. It didn't work with any phones in the apartment. Fortunately, all the required modes except remote control were accessible from the hardware.


The lack of video editing software was disappointing. It'll take reinstalling Linux merely to compile an H265 decoder, which is about as bad as reinstalling Windows. The decision was made to have the Samsung make timelapse photos on a tall pole, with the gopro making 4k video right below it. Starting them up remotely & cooling them is the tricky part.


Things didn't go so well in the narrow angle video department either. The t4i doesn't support Av or Tv in video mode, only fully automatic or fully manual. Fully automatic might actually be enough. Narrow angle video isn't the mane priority.

There is so much to cover about batteries , I always find something I left out , so sorry about that .

Lets talk performance .

Batteries are not created equal , just like there might be variance in car engines coming of an assembly line , there is variance in the cells that make up a battery pack . So many variables here .

Anyhow , are these individual cells tested and graded and then matched for battery packs ? ( I really don't think so - certainly not the cheaper ones ) So depending on where the pack builder sources there cells could seriously affect the over all quality . Lets get to performance ..

Batteries are graded by Capacity / number of cells / and discharge ... We are interested in discharge .

Now you may notice batteries have 20C / 25C / 30C and so forth on the labels ..
This is the discharge rating .. It means ( 20C ) 20 times capacity .
So lets say you have a 1000mAh 20C battery that is 3s with a nominal voltage of 11.1 volt

1000 x 20 = 20 Amps lets multiply that by the nominal voltage 11.1 ( Lets call it 11 ) 11 x 20 = 220 Watts
So on paper , we have established that this battery might be suitable for applications where the motor ( ? ) might produce around 200 Watts
So what just happened is we matched the battery pack to the power needs ..

Do you have to do this ? ( Well that's up to you ) The battery pack might be able to do better than that , but you also might run into issues where the batteries are maybe not that...Continue Reading

I was given a van load of "stuff" from a old flying baddie. it was ALL good stuff. Several kits one was a kadet, I have been flying the "ARF"Kadet, with old eyes it was good size to see, so as soon as we got to Fl. for our winter break I started on the kadet, I added a really large front hatch, Flaps an ailerons work together till told to do otherwise from my great dx#7.
I never had a clear plane so this was my attempt at it
It has a 60 electric, 80 amp castle creations, 5500 6 cell. great flyer!!!very pleased.

Had to take some time away from the sport and get my other businesses off the ground and running, but now its back to fun in the sun... & with these new babies some fun in the night skies also. I've flown with teleport V4s since the beginning of my FPVing days. Well, after dropping the goggles and breaking the crystals about two months ago I decided to save up and grab the Dom V3s by FatShark.

When you have trouble binding or it is not binding and the blue light on the FC is blinking. You should try doing the whole binding process from start to finish as described in the manual. Here is a video link to what the problem might look like.
I had this problem and fixed it as described. If you guys have any more questions, let me know and I will see what I can do. I have 2 Convergence's so I have had some problems.
