After completing an initial review of the EMax hawk 5 (here) I can happily say this is my favourite 5" ready to fly quad due to the well-tested and balanced components. That being said I still like to play and have found a number of mods that have improve the feel (in my opinion) and another must-do mod that addresses the poor vtx antenna mounting solution. The full blog where I discuss this and other possible improvements is here:

Hopefully you find something useful here for your own Hawk 5.

DJI Ronin S Unbox and Information with Panasonic GH5



Costing $699 US and £669 in the UK and its available to pre order from DJI Here

http://click.dji.com/AHaZe1oTt0pits2...0034&pm=custom



The Ronin S is a single handed DSLR and Mirrorless Camera gimbal that can support models up to 3.6kg and still provide stabilises footage while on the move, I purchased mine at the same time as the Panasonic GH5 and have been using this combination for over a month now.



Features



Superior 3-Axis Stabilization with 3.6 kg Tested Payload Capacity


The Ronin S is fitted with very powerful motors, its been tested up to 3.6kg but many people have exceeded this with large cameras like a RED and still got solid stabilisation results.

The Ronin S has Autotune that is able to tune its motor power so no matter if you have a Sony A6300 or and GH5 with Cage its always giving you great performance.


Camera Control

On supported camera models you can control the shutter, start and stop recording and focus via the built-in buttons on the Ronin S Grip, it also means the Ronin S can automatically fire the shutter in intelligent modes like Motionlaps.

Currently the GH5 offers the most compatibility, DJI are working on updating camera support all the time and there is a up to date list on the DJI site of officially supported models.


Built in Focus Control

DJI include the find focus control with the Ronin S kit, this allows you to do actions

I created this series of videos for my subscribers on youtube as I was regularly being asked questions around how the GPS works, what relationship the compass has and how these all work with the individual flight modes.

Halloa people

in case you have come across my channel lately, you probably know I like the KHX5 Elegant frames from GepRC quite a bit.. By now I have build 3 quads with that frame..
BUT.. now there's allso a BNF / PNF version of it, for those of us that just wanna fly instead of building the quad themselves

Link to this quad: GepRC KHX5 Elegant BNF / PNF version

Excellent! The drawback of a ready-made quad is offcourse that you can't pick & chose the components yourself.. So has GepRC done a good job at that for us??

Greetings gentle readers;

I’m continuing to work on the 3D printer enclosure. I’ve got the two side panels completed, inside painted white, and four ¾” aluminum angle riveted into place, and the top panel partially complete, inside painted white, and one ¾” aluminum angle riveted into place. I’ve ordered and received the hardware for the clear acrylic doors. I’ve ordered and just received a battery backup for the printer. I was printing a couple of parts to test the fit of the parts with some purchased parts. During the 14-hour print, we had a power glitch (lost power for about 5 seconds). That shut off the entire print and left me with ¾ complete parts. Had I been ¾ of the way through a 7-day print, it would have been more of an issue. With the battery backup/surge protector, I should be able to continue printing for approximately 45 minutes before the battery is depleted. Our house power supply is quite reliable, but there are times when the power will trip off for a few minutes every so often. So the idea is for the battery back-up to keep the printer operating through these short power outages. If we lose power for an extended time, then I’ll lose those prints. In the meantime, the printer continues to be idle.

Just got back home from attending the 2018 NMRA National Train Show in Kansas City, Missouri. Just WOW! Fantastic modular layouts in O, HO, N, and Z scales and also LEGO trains.

As for the boat itself, I have been working on the battery...Continue Reading

Epp Plank finally flies. It flies fast considering it has a slowfly prop and tiny 2206/1400kv motor. It is heavy, 450 grams and I have to really heave it to get it into the air and then it sort of fights its way up. Way under powered plane but great once it gets going. Unfortunately I had a tiny ESC on it and it was too much at full throttle. Plane doesn't really land, it just kind of falls out of the sky onto the ground. But built Ford tough. Looking forward to getting this one up to speed. It sounds kind of cool because one end of the wing is open. Also replaced crooked control rods with stronger straight ones cause they were bending - that's why it ended up in a tree. Got it down with a 5 meter bamboo pole.
See if you can hear when the ESC gives up the ghost.

Everyone I know in aviation, whether it be modelers or full scale pilots, has a favorite airplane. My first ride in a Piper Cub happened when I was really young and it changed the trajectory of my life. I knew I wanted to fly, and one day fly a Cub. It took me 30 years to get back in to a Cub, but it was well worth it. Idling at the end of the grass runway, pushing the throttle up and pushing the stick forward to get the tail flying...50mph and it flys off with gentle tug on the stick. The Cub doesn't go fast, doesn't really climb well, and isn't very aerobatic, but what it does give you is a sense of being one with the air. Cruising at 85mph with the door open doing lazy 8s, working to keep the ball in the middle, is fun, just plain old fun. There is something about looking out at those yellow wings knowing that for the last 80 years or so the Piper Cub has been teaching or providing many a person with their first taste of flying or the nuances of keeping a taildragger straight. I can't think of any other airplane that gives such a great reward for such simplicity. With no electrical system you have to hand start the engine, there is no radio so diligence in looking for traffic is mandatory. Plain old stick and rudder skills will sharpen quickly. On grass the Cub is a pussy cat, pavement can provide you with an entirely different landing or takeoff experience. The heel brakes might as well not even be installed so attention to directional control on pavement is...Continue Reading

I got the go-ahead from the family to get a street bike. I explained that if i feel the road is too dangerous i may trade it for a dirtbike

I have decided my SV650 dream is a bit too expensive, heavy, & fancy for my wallet. If i win the lottery however... to me the SV650 is motorcycle art!

But I can't afford anything 'artistic.' The Honda CB500F or Yamaha SR400 are the best i can do. Honestly, i think they look sweet These are $6000 bikes not including fees.

$6000 bikes are supposed to be utilitarian, according to the US Motorcycle bible. That is considered cheap to modern motorcyclists. For me, it's about all i'd ever like to spend. The used market affords more promise, but i am hoping to get a new bike

(Every motorcycle magazine has dug up a piece of this 'bible.' And I'm pretty sure it was written by men....wanting to sell $18,000 VMAXes and mid-life crisis supersport bikes)

What! Why buy new!? Because... I'm getting older. This may be my only chance to get a new bike. Heck, it'll take me 3-4 years before i am even ready to purchase one.

And yolo (gotta take care of a few deals first)
