IT IS RC................Just something i thought might interest some of my fellow RC'ers. It seems to be similar to Lego Technic ( and might be fully compatible, i dont know ) but in some videos it looks to be a little faster than the Lego version. This could be quite a good starter kit for someone interested in RC who also likes Lego and the fact that its a building kit means you could create some unique vehicles...................and its $30.........find me some Lego at that price.

There is also this pretty cool kit which can be built into a car or a haulage truck for $25. If the two sets could be combined it would create a pretty awesome racing truck.

The first version of the SG906 was pretty amazing and it is the only Aerial Photography quad that I still fly due to the GPS actually working exactly as it should . This time we have a 2 axis gimbal and some upgrades made to the Camera, 5G Wifi and software ( which is always good) and we even have some flashy Gif's (thats my trademark thanks very much ), could ............ could this be the ultimate budget AP Quad ????? If they would upgrade the cam to Firefly 4K or CaddX Tarsier quality this would be killer !


After contacting the manufacturer it seems the new camera is not backwards compatible, which is a shame. Waiting on a raw video sample.

Following on from the previous P-51 we have another gyro stabilised micro plane from Eachine/Volantex, this time the USAF F- 22. Things are a little different this time with a direct drive pusher prop ( micro edf at this price point is a little too much to ask i think ) and a removal of the rudder in favour of a locked twin elevator ( the two servos control an elevator each but cannot be controlled independently FSSR )

Some quick "Tricks"

OPENTX/DEVIATIONTX : With the latest version of the software and the latest MultiProtocolModule firmware you can control these planes. Protocol V761, they are 6 channel boards with CH5 being Gyro mode/sensitivity. This gives a MUCH finer control IMO

Reversing Aileron or Elevator Direction : BEFORE arming (connect battery but do not throttle up to arm ) Move the Elevator/Aileron stick to the maximum and hold it for 2-3 seconds. The Transmitter will BEEP and the Elevator/Aileron will Twitch. You have now reversed Aileron/Elevator direction.

Taileron Control : Remove the aileron servo plug ( and Servo for that matter ) This will start the board in Taileron control, WHY ? you ask , well , removing the Aileron servo and its linkages will make the plane a few grams lighter increasing performance and Taileron control is more than enough for a tiny little stabilized plane imo, ALSO you can install this board in a FLYING WING and have Elevon control or install it any Chuck Glider,...Continue Reading

To sit alongside their growing popular range of Cruiser and Long Range planes ,an incredibly simple GPS and Flight Controller or Mini FPV Cam/Vtx combo Zohd have put together a simple set of battery packs A 2S 7.4v 18650 pack for your favourite choice of Goggles, the 2S pack should be a good replacement for the Fatsharks, Aomway or even Eachine VR D2 stock battery and a 4S 14.8v 3500mAh 18650 pack which at 210grams is comparable to a 2200mAh 3S 11.1v LiPo but with 50% more mAh and an extra cell to boot !. They do of course have a lower Amp draw but these are not meant for your racing drone or pylon racer and instead are more suited to your long range 'Cruiser' loaded up with 4K cameras to take some wild and explorative video......................They would also fit quite nicely in my FeiLun FT011 RC Boat

2S 7.4v 18650 pack

Description:
Lithium Ion batteries are not stranger to the RC & FPV scene. They have been around for years, especially for those who like to DIY.
Most pilots are very familiar with the advantages and disadvantages of Li-ions but its also known that the advantages for FPV pilots (especially long rangers) are way more than the shortcomings. With a well-planned power setup, this packs can give you up to double the flight time you will get with a similar Li-Po battery, not...Continue Reading

UK 'Drone' regulations ( they're Quadcopters not Drones, Drones carry weapons or surveillance equipment ) are ruining the hobby, now we either stay below 250grams or submit to their ridiculous and constraining requirements. SO, I am now reduced ( even though micros fly extremely well that mental boot print is still at the back of my mind ) to flying sub 250grams. If this can carry a Firefly 4K or a CADDX Tarsier I would be very happy.

I'm assuming this is the decal scheme used. 'Hats off' to Capt Roscoe C Brown Jnr.

Roscoe C. Brown, Jr graduated from Tuskegee Flight School in March of 1944 and went on to command the 100th Fighter Suadron 332nd Fighter Group. On 24 March 1945 Brown became one of only 15 pilots to shoot down an Me262. A week later he added a Bf109 and destroyed a locomotive while on a fighter sweep near Munich both while flying "Bunnie/Miss Kentucky State".


The Eachine 450mm 'Miss Kentucky State' P51 Mustang is one of a collection of 4 micro brushed Warbirds ( P51, Spitfire, Grumman F8F, Mitsubishi Zero, there is also a Cub in the same and smaller sizes ) that are available under different brand names, the planes are full 4 channel control ( Aileron, Elevator, Rudder and Throttle via a geared Brushed motor ) and incorporate a Gyro for stabilised flight. These planes are a step up from the previous generation and should be suitable for anyone who has flown the previous models ( C-17 Transport , GD-006, Z51 Predator, XK A130 Y20, XK A150 Boeing 747 ). Being small, 4 channel and Warbirds they are of course more complex in their flight behaviour but the inclusion of the Gyro should tame things down to something very manageable and for those with experience, the Gyro can be disabled via the top Right switch giving you full control over the aircrafts control...Continue Reading

Eachine Cinecan 85mm 4K Cinewhoop 3-4S FPV Racing Drone BNF/PNP F4 PRO V3.0 Caddx Tarsier Cam DVR

Introduction

The times - thankfully- are changing.... Over the last few years Quads have evolved in nearly every aspect, more efficient motors and props have increased the available thrust giving us more agility in our acro, flight controllers have incorporated an OSD, battery monitoring and RSSi and Video Transmitters have given us expanded channel choice with its own RSSi allowing us to choose frequencies that offer better signal penetration. Whilst all these advances have occurred the most important system of all has remained ( pretty much ) at the same basic level as it was 5 years ago, minor advancements have appeared in the form of low resolution CCD cameras and later with the addition of a large, bulky box style Action camera but these were heavy meaning larger quads were necessary IF we wanted to produce high quality video.

Thankfully cameras have taken a huge step forward and manufacturers have started to produce cameras and DVR boards to the same specification used in our Quads, now we have single or dual lens cameras with separate DVR boards that fit within the 30x30 confines of our other equipment and some combine PWM signal control enabling remote access to settings via the flight controller and our Transmitter and even WiFi allowing the most common of remote devices ..the mobile phone.. to control and...Continue Reading

Very quick one, I needed some new servos and these popped up when I was looking. Normally I will buy Zohd Digitals or Tower Pro MG90S Metal Geared servos depending on what they're intended for but these appeared as a multi-pack of 6 so I bought a pack.
The servos arrived today and I have spent an hour or so messing around with them before writing this. All of them work fine (as I expected ) and come with 3 servo horns and 4 screws ( 2 for securing the servo and 2 that fix the horn in place) In operation they feel and sound a little smoother than my Tower Pro's which work perfectly but sound a little "meshy" in use. I dont foresee any issues with using them in the planes that they are intended for and because of the price I have bought a second pack and will double or triple up next time ( I didnt buy enough "spares" of the awesome Eachine 5Gram servos when they were available, I wont make that mistake again).
