Ultralight quadcopters - Toothpicks, Twigs and Cinewhoops are gaining bigger popularity these days. Size and weight of the components is the crucial factor for these quads. So there is high demand of a small and lightweight VTX, of course with a decent performance and reasonable price. There are a few really good receivers out there, like TBS Unify Pro32 Nano, or Cricket Nano VTXbut they are pricy.Echine has its own line of the small video transmitters with VTX03, ATX03 and ATX03S. RecentlyEachine released even smaller, lighter and more powerful Nano VTX. Lets take a closer look at it and test the output power of this VTX.

It is understood that many countries including China and Canada have already launched drone air patrols and participated in highway traffic management. The drones focus on traffic violations such as emergency lane parking and big car occupation.

UAV patrol duty is mainly used for aerial photography to observe road traffic congestion and capture traffic violations. According to the traffic police who used the professional training of the UAV in the early stage, within the scope of the radiation coverage of the drone, it can be said where to shoot, and all kinds of violations of traffic rules and road safety can not escape its law. The trajectory of all vehicles and the number plate of the vehicle can be taken very clearly. For some motor vehicles that do not follow the prescribed lanes, illegal lanes for illegal lanes, and emergency lanes, they can be captured, providing strong evidence for the traffic police department to be punished according to law; and capturing and exposing some illegal activities such as retrograde vehicles. Elimination of blind spots in road enforcement.

It is reported that most of the traffic police departments in China currently use the most advanced UAV monitoring equipment, including the Thyea Z40 HD zoom head and the Cirrutitan detachable tether system independently developed by MMC UAV. The Z40 camera pan/tilt is custom-made with a 40x optical zoom lens with a pixel count of 25 million. Even in the air, the inside of the car and the cab can be clearly seen. The Cirrutitan detachable tether system is designed to deliver power to the drone for long periods of time in the air, enabling the drone to perform 24-hour flight monitoring in the air.

I am trying to find the best priced and reputable supplier for the families drones. I can’t seem to find the right 3.7v batteries in the right dimensions. We are in Australia but also happy to go online.
Can anyone out there help this Newby to Dronesville ????

31st year. Wow! For the first decade or so I was a regular. Then in the early 00s we lost our big field and the IMAA, for which I was the local AVP, started its slide. I lost heart and family issues flew very little for a decade. Im getting the urge to fly big planes again. This trip reinforced that urge.

The emphasis at Bomber Fields annual event is bombers. Historically B-17s but this year there were others including a buck of B-24s, a couple of B-25s and a B-29.

You can find a lot more about this years event on Social Media . Check Bomberfield (one word), the NASA scale and, my friends, RC Roundtable pages....Continue Reading

Yes !
The first one was WLtoys F949 with a 8520 brushed motor .
But it is a two wing kit
So what to do with the 2nd wing ?

Brushless of course ..

Motor = RacerStar 1103 1-3s / props came with the kit
ESC = 6A EBAY job
Rx = FS2A from BG ( My Fav 4ch Rx )
Servos = ? I dont know , either 5g or 4.3g or something .

Been in limbo for a while waiting for a motor . Hopefully do 1:1 thrust or better ( I hope ) .
This motor seems to run fine . ( The first one was FUBAR )
Flying soon I hope .

Well after 50 missions I got fed up with the stock gear getting wabbolly and loose so I decided I needed to do some exploratory surgery and come up with a fix. I moved the retract over 2.4 centimeters and will get rid of the ugly spring the stock strut has. In doing so, I can put Oleo struts on and fix the stance a little....Continue Reading
