I should be getting this next, should stand a better chance of 3d flying ( inverted ) than the sailfly due to the bigger motors , I got the sailfly to 3d but not brilliant due to the smaller motor and ESC sizes, this might work perhaps...

Since I bought my hobbyking 4 port charger a while ago I always wanted something quieter and then the thing stopped working on 2 channels and the other 2 don't do storage charge anymore so I guess you get what you pay for...

Hobbymate D6 duo pro charger review and feature look plus lipo safe bag. (14 min 49 sec)

After watching some reviews on this charger I decided to give it a try and i am glad I did, after updating firmware as per instructions and disabling wireless charging the charger is totally silent ( fan only runs when temperature inside is over 60c and goes back off again when it goes bellow about 50c iirc ) most of the time and is much smaller and runs off mains power or a DC source like a battery.

Has great features and balances cells perfectly.

I got mine from Amazon UK too so no need to worry about postage times and import duties.
Product link none affiliate

If you want to help me please my affiliate referal thanks.
And this lipo safe bag is great and pretty cheap and big.

Been using both for a about a week now and very happy with them, the bag is useful for storage and carrying batts and chargers etc,
But the charger itself is great, almost makes charging fun lol, the display is big and bright and shows either single battery info or both at the same time, whilst charging it even shows internal resistance...Continue Reading

This is a genuine 1080p 60 FPS recording camera which actually records 2.5k at 30 FPS IF you want to but I wanted the 60fps firmly quads and planes.
It also provides live video out at the same time as it records so could be used as fpv camera with a seperate vtx.
I'm going to do that later and add head tracking to my gliders for both recording hd and live fpv from one camera.
Usb for file transfer too so no need to mess about with SD cards all the time.
Again this will be a written review but video review done too and some flight footage from my glider.
If you find this or any of my articles useful please consider using my Affiliate link no extra cost to you and helps me fund the next review ( no need to buy this camera , anything you buy after clicking on that visit will earn me a small % commission )
