This plane is the 3D Hobby Shop 75" Edge 540. I'm partial to white planes so I took the orange color scheme and stripped the covering off right out of the box and recovered it in UltraCote White.

The plane has a new DLE-35RA motor and Hitec 7954 servos all around. The elevator and rudder servos are equipped with SWB arms. It has a Tech Aero cutoff switch and an Emcotec switch from Esprit Model in Florida. It also has a Xoar 21x8 prop inside a Tru-Turn 3.5" Spinner.

The motor cowling and canopy were painted in a local auto body shop and the paint looks like a car finish.

This plane has not been flown as of June 23, 2018

Here is some sample footage from the new Foxeer Monster Pro. Very impressive for a $25 camera.

Foxeer Monster Pro (V3) Sample footage - Topsky F7X DVR (2 min 55 sec)

The video was recorded from my Topsky goggles with an Eachine Pro58 module.

I'll have a full review of the camera coming soon.

Por conter a tecnologia Smart Audio, a mudana de canal ainda pode ser feita atravs do OSD do firmware como o Betaflight ou Butterflight. No entanto eu no cheguei a fazer uso deste recurso.

Com o produto em mos eu j pude...Continue Reading

Yep Les Amis,
MJX BUGS 3 PRO en action ! Aujourd'hui je test l'engin en vol, les diffrents mode de l'application et ses ractions. Agrablement surpris par son positionnement GPS et sa stabilit malgrs les petites rafales de vent ce jour l, il est vraiment scurisant . La porte radio et vido est bonne et mise part un petit souci de compatibilit avec mon smartphone (car c'est un import qui n'est normalement pas prvu pour la France) , tout fonctionne parfaitement bien comme vous pourrez le constater. Je reste sur mon premier avis propos de la vido, les images sont plutt bonnes mais le manque de FPS (25) donne un rendu lgrement saccad sur les vidos en mouvement. La bonne surprise c'est que mme si vous dsactivez le GPS en vol, l'appareil reviendra quand mme son point de dcollage en fin de batterie. En bref, MJX reste sur sa ligne de conduite, un appareil qui l'air fiable et performant mme si quelques petits dfauts (vido) viennent obscurcirent le tableau, pensez que vous pouvez toujours le commander sans camra et y installer la votre ... Bien sur, si vous utilisez la Onepaa vous pouvez galement installer le VTX Onepaa FXT pour avoir le retour d'image en FPV .

MJX BUGS 3 PRO GPS Drone Review Test Démo / Follow me etc ... (27 min 0 sec)

NOTATAZ : 16.5/20 Ca se confirme !

NIVEAU : Dbutants
Les + : Stable, Bon positionnement GPS, Modes de vol fonctionnels, Trs scurisant .
Les - : Vido Saccade (25fps), Autonomie correcte .

I am thinking Saito should make a new Inline V-Twin similar to thier FA-100Ti.

Only, i think it should be based on the wonderful FA-62B. So it will be an FA-124Ti or FA-125Ti depending on the combined displacement. Being 'inline' it may fit in some warbirds such as a Spitfire or Mustang.

I would probably put one on a stick plane and be good to go

I just got through running my used FA-62A some more. It seems awesome! Great power and sound in a small package

I would've had it tuned days ago but i keep missing the Sunlight for my tachometer. I just about finished tuning it today ...but Sun = gone

It seems to have more power than my FA-56 yet i have not checked valves on the .56. I also did not set my .56 to peak, rather 9400rpm. I read it can spin a 13x4 to 10,500 but i would lower it.

Pretty sure the .62 was doing 10,100 rpm easily with the Xoar 13x4. I'll see for sure when i find some Sun.

If the .62 continues to show promise, my current 3 favorite Saito engines (that i own) are:
FA-40A (have yet to run but it looks like a little gem)
FA-62 (1hp engine yet manages to weigh less than the classic .50 that i love)
FA-91S (have yet to run mine but she is a heck of a looker)

May i also add i enjoy the older style mufflers and pipes.
The newer mufflers seem to be made very well but look a bit odd. The older long mufflers look like a real 4-stroke muffler. The one-piece black mufflers look classy to me. I also do enjoy pipes

I think the FA-120R3 is based off the FA-40A. It is definitely on My List
