Just a quick shout-out to all the Fusion 180 flyers out there to recommend installing protectors onto your LIPO balance leads. The protectors simplify unplugging the balance leads after charging without feeling like the wires are getting ripped loose from the connector.

Securing LIPO Balance Lead Under Fusion 180 Canopy (1 min 53 sec)


There are a wide variety of sites that sell these protectors. Following is a link to a vendor I went with:

Lipo-Balance-Charging-Port-Protector-Saver

Of course, the protectors are bulky and interfere with installing the canopy onto the heli! As a solution, I zip-tied a small loop of elastic string onto the front of the frame so that I can tuck-in the protector before putting on the canopy. The elastic loop really works well, it doesn't look ridiculous on the heli, and it doesn't get in the way of anything else under the canopy.

I haven't yet tried it, but I bet this will also work well with the Blade 150S, the 180CFX, as well as the Trio 180CFX.

Here is a link to the Video:

This is another Great Micro Warbird from Eachine and well worth the money in my opinion.
It is a bit Nose Heavy out of the box but .75g of Tail Weight and it balances perfectly.
I think this Plane is a bit faster than the P51D and not quite as stable due to the Gull Wings.
It has a very Wide Flight Envelope but flying too slow will cause a Wing to Dip.
I like the weight of the 1S 360mah LIPO rather than the 1S 400mah LIPO in this Plane.
I need a bit more Elevator and Rudder Movement so I'll adjust the Linkage and Test it out again.
Part 4 of this Review will be Testing the Adjustments and then I'll state my Conclusion on this Warbird ;-)

Mine will get repainted in a russian camo scheme, that Slovak Tiger digital camo on a MiG-29 looks a bit odd to me (plus I have enough boring gray planes ).

All the "Hans" family of fairy tales transport us through time and space to THE SPECIAL CONDITIONS, which decided how things would look out , and what shape they took ..

Frankness identifies Hans .. It directs his steps, his Evolution, Fort-entwicklung, Cheminement ..

Une vigilance supplémentaire lui devient nécessaire, à partir de la première "lecture a vue", pour s'avancer à la rencontre D'UN SENS SECOND ..

I made a quick video explaining how to use the 9th channel on the Graupner S1019 receiver as a telemetry port. Most of us don't use 9 channels and might want to monitor your Lipo battery while flying using a Graupner voltage sensor.

The WL TOys 144001 is excellent value for money but there are a number of quirks, one of which is that the tyres are not especially grippy on much else than hard packed clay/dirt or carpet. I've found two sets of off-road tyres/wheels that are compatible with the 144001 in that they physically fit and just as importantly don't upset the gear ratio significantly. Here are my findings and more importantly recommendations:

SJCAM SJ10pro Action Review:

After playing around with my SJCAM SJ10 10 action for a few days, I really feel that this Native 4K Action camera is really give Gopro Hero 8 and DJI OSMO a run their money.

As a serious Gopro contender, SJ10 picks up much needed slack after the lackluster launch of the SJ9 Strike.

The first impression is this sports camera has a very sturdy frame. Made from Polycarbonate and reinforced fiberglass with a rubberized matte black finish, the SJ10 is sturdy and shock resistant.

the SJ10 Action weighs 85 grams. The camera is waterproof for up to 10 meters without a waterproof case. You can add a waterproof case and take the SJ10pro up to 30 meters below!

Are you into FPV aerial / drone photography? The SJ10 supports FPV using the remote shutter and FPV av-out cable.

Want to mount the SJ10 Pro onto your motorcycle and speak into the audio using a Mic?

Just mount the external Mic accessory and begin recording native [email protected] video and crystal clear audio!

The SJ10 pro supports Dashcam mode so this can be used as car DVR for safety / insurance purposes.


Without further ado, let's delve into the SJ10 Pro Native 4k action Camera features.



SJCAM SJ10pro Action Native 4K Features:

- Waterproof body up to 10 meters. Dive down to 30 meters with the SJ10 Pro Waterproof Case accessory

- Record up to Native 4k at 60 frames per second. 4k/60fps

- Live stream your videos to Instagram and Tiktok

- Supersmooth Gyro...Continue Reading

A mate of mine recently had a laptop battery which was swollen to about three times its size – I was concerned it might pop and I only had my Bat Safe box to put it, leaving my own RC LiPos out of a suitable home. (I have LiPo bags but I prefer more solid protection). I realised I needed better battery storage options but due to the pandemic, freight to Australia has been limited and I was unable to buy any more Bat Safes….. so I decided it was time to make my own. It ended up costing me more than the commercial ones probably would have but I’ve got a lot more storage capacity for the price and the satisfaction of having done it myself…

I made a toolbox “Dual charger” version and some single Ammo Box versions so I can charge and store separately. This should minimise loss of batteries if one should go up and try to take any others with it.

I took some inspiration from posts here and on the web, supplies are what I can get hold of here in Australia, you would probably need to re-work the design/s depending on what you can get hold of locally. The main aim was in the event of a battery fire, to minimise the temperature of the outer container as much as possible and provide effective venting with suitable non-flammable materials.

For venting, I found some Galvanised Brick vents that have their own mesh built in and are just the right depth for 13mm glass wool “blankets”, all I needed was to find a way to cover with some stainless mesh, and attach to lids of either the...Continue Reading
