Best to wait a year or two, before you purchase a multirotor (drone) for racing, sport flying, video or photography. There are rumors that some major changes in regulations from the FAA and FCC are in store. Of course, they're only rumors right now, but it will affect whether or not you will be allowed to fly or even own a multirotor aircraft. So don't plunk down any of your hard-earned money just yet, unless you're very wealthy and/or have your own private land to fly over. Here is an example of what can happen and worse: https://forum.dji.com/thread-96803-1-1.html

Video of the Crazy Sukhoi. It is designed for indoors but it coped fine with a very light breeze and I enjoyed it so much I kept flying and charging packs until the wind picked up too much.

Hi fellow pilots & rc enthusiasts

Good gloves for rc outdoors. If you do rc outdoors in cold weather like me and hold a radio controller in your hands for long periods of time, it can be very unpleasant. I find these very comfortable & effective, so I thought I would tip & share this with you:

Thanks to this youtuber that found a lipo that fits PERFECTLY into the QX7 battery tray, I now have a claimed 6000mAh (5000mAh-ish actual) pack for my Taranis. Four 3000mAh cells wired up 2S2P. Now I just have to fix my balance charger to quit complaining about low voltage when charging 2S batteries so that I can charge it fully.

I received a RunCam Split Mini yesterday and I'm very impressed by how small it is.

The build quality on the camera unit is great but the two boards have to be mated to each other and great care needs to be happen to do it properly. There is a small blue pad that is between both pieces that is used to transfer heat and pins that are on the boards that have to line up perfectly. The blue heating pad needs to stay clean along with the surface to where the blue pad sits on the board surface. If not done properly I think heating will become an issue.

Overall I'm very happy the direction that RunCam went with this unit and with the weight of the unit with metal standoffs is 18g so 13 grams above a Swift micro. The ribbon cable is also much better than the Split V1 and V2 and is more robust. Overall I don't see the need for the V1 or V2 except for the mounting pattern of the mini is 20x20 as opposed to the 30.5 mounting pattern of it's predecessors.


Take a look at my video

A passenger plane skidded off a runway and was left stuck precariously on the side of a cliff in northeast Turkey. All 162 passengers and crew on board the Pegasus Airlines' Boeing 737-800 miraculously escaped, with no serious injuries reported, following the incident at Trabzon Airport, on Turkey’s Black Sea coast. Panicked passengers were evacuated from the aircraft early on Sunday after emergency service crews arrived at the scene.

It flies again! My Claes Meier Autopartner Crazy Sukhoi resurrected! The missing Depron pieces were replaced with some new ones. I used permanent pen and redid the green/chequered/streak pattern by hand. Some BlenderM tape and UHU Por was needed to fix various cracks etc and all servo horns were re-centered.

CG was guessed, Dual rates set to 30% and first launch, ouch, super rear heavy. Combined with being a bit out of trim it was almost unflyable. Slow though so easy to land. Some adjustment of battery and some trim and it transformed completely, becoming very stable and nice.

It is very fragile though. I broke it several times on the board and pulled the fuse apart when clumsily removing the battery. Normal for Depron I think.

Anyway, I went through pack after pack until the wind started picking up too much. Very fun and being my first plane of this type I’m positively surprised and impressed!

Yep Les Amis,

Quel KIFF ce BUGGY !!! Voici le FS RACING 9.5, un super Buggy au 1/8 qui envoie sévère . Je ne m'attendais pas à être aussi agréablement surpris par cet engin, habitué aux grosses roues pour les sauts et la stabilité, j'ai découvert de nouvelles sensations au raz du sol avec ce bolide . D'une stabilité impressionnante, ce petit monstre atteind sans problème sa vitesse max SANS BRONCHER ! Sa puissance et sa réactivité permet également de récuperer facilement votre assiette lors des sauts et ses amortisseurs Big Bore vous assurent un atterissage tout en douceur et stable . Aucune perte de contrôle ni dérive, sur terre ou bitume il envoit du steak et réagit au doigt et à l'oeil . Après 2 sessions, dont une de Bash et sauts, rien n'a bougé (à part une petite cassure sur la carrosserie), bien sur, après le nettoyage, une vérification des serrages s'impose, comme les autres ... JE VALIDE !!!

N' hésitez pas à laisser en commentaires, vos remarques sur la VIDÉO ou le sujet ... et si vous avez apprécié le montage, le contenu ou la JLB J3 ELASTIQUES ! LOL... LIKEZ svp.
