Halloa guys

soooo yes.. I've got me another FPV quadro in about a week ago It's a 110mm size one, and if you have followed my channel you might remember me daying I didn't really want smaller then 140/130 size quads anymore.. Mostly because most/all of them have crappy Cmos camera's, and are mostly quite fragile..

So yeah.. I couldn't resist ordering this Fly Fox because this one Does have a nice CCD cam, and on top of that: Smart Audio (Tramp protocol)

Link to this quadcopter: Fly Fox 110 micro FPV quad at HobbyCool

And here are my initial findings:

Hi there guys

yes.. we don't Only have lipo's etc to charge in this hobby :P Sometimes you need AA's or AAA's for radio's.. But these kinds of batteries are used in all manner of house-hold stuff as well offcourse
So far I used like really Dumb chargers for those types of batteries.. Time to step that game up a bit

Hi there guys

Recently I was getting a new FPV quad ready (again :P) and though it might be nice to record that process.. So this video is mostly aimed at people that transition from a brushed (FPV) quad to a brushless one, with all the Betaflight bells & wistles Can be quite dawnting I think!

As I've said over and over: it's Very advisable to first get the flying part down with a brushed quad.. such as this one:

DutchRC - THE beginner FPV Quadcopter?? The XK X130-T (32 min 6 sec)


And after that.. here is a how-to on getting your new brushless monster in the air (safely):

Howdy peoples

soooo yes! I'm going to be doing another giveaway! Quite a nice (IMHO) 145-size FPV racing quad I'm giving away this time
At This point it's new-in-the-box.. What do you say.. Should I fly it first or give it away as-is?
