Just finished up a nice video review of the Hubsan Spyhawk H301S.
This is the newest version of the Spyhawk.

Not exactly a cool name for an Fpv plane, but it's a pretty nice plane
with around 1000 meters range.

Enjoy the flight. - Justin

Lumenier QAV ULX, PRO BUILD Video by Drone Camps RC (33 min 33 sec)

Posted by surferguy | Nov 09, 2016 @ 02:43 PM | 1,025 Views
The DJI Mavic is pretty awesome but not everyone wants to spend $999.

Yuneec Breeze 4K is under $500 and a lower cost alternative to the popular DJI Mavic. This is not a Mavic VS Breeze video comparison. because we can't honestly compare software stabilized video to a mechanical 3 Axis gimbal that cost $999. The point of this video is... Is it an acceptable alternative for under the $500 mark? It's time for the prices of drones to come down to a sober level.

Watch the full review of the Breeze 4K to see if it's something you might like.

For more information on the Breeze 4K check out
http://www.yuneec.com

YUNEEC BREEZE 4K - Review, Tested, and Pros VS Cons :

What I liked :
- This is the smallest and lightest 4K drone I have flown this year.
- The 1080p stabilize mode worked well in 20mph winds.
- The 4K mode works better in still to no wind.
- Extreme portability. The lightest in the weigh off between the
Breeze 4K and DJI Mavic.
- Looks harmless to people on the street.
- Small and quiet in the air. None noticed much and if
they did they didn't care. Most people walked up to see it in person.
- Not intimidating for new people to fly. My wife flew this and loved it.
- The price for this is a winner with me. I think all of the new drones should start coming down below the $500 price point.
- The APP is super easy to use.
- This drone has the fastest GPS load time of any drone I've seen.
- 16-20 Satellites in under 1.5 minutes.
- Looks durable....Continue Reading

FMS EDGE 540 Review, Setup, and Flight Video

EPIC flying session and build tips of the FMS EDGE 540 Airplane. The EDGE 540 is a worldwide famous aerobatic plane used in the Redbull Air Races. This is an ARF that you can setup in a few hours time. Join us for some wild aerobatics with forward and rear facing video. Ps. Watch out guys this is not a beginner plane.

What I liked about the FMS EDGE 540:

- FMS is known for making great quality foamie airplanes.
- Made of durable EPO foam that is dense and tough.
- FMS Metal Geared servos are just $13.99 each and perform well.
- Durable landing gear in my testing so far. I had some bumps as
you can see in the video.
- Loops, inverted eights, rolls, knife edges, outside loops, and hover maneuvers.
- Large control horns for maximum throw if you want. Or tune it down to fly on rails.
- Good power system. The motor is already mounted. All you have to do it put the prop on.
- All the servo cables are already inside the plane and labeled
so you know where to plug things into the receiver.
- Scale looking pilot inside the cockpit is kind of cool.
- Color schemes come in light blue and white or red.
- Works well with Spektrum, Futuba, or Taranis Radios.
- Flies for more than 6-7 minutes in my testing on a Turnigy 4S 2650
- 60Amp FMS ESC. Tip: If you turn on your plane and it just beeps at you. Take off the prop and do this. Turn on your radio. Put the throttle stick in the full up direction. Now turn on the...Continue Reading

Avant Nex X4 Quad Review ...

This Halloween take a trip to the Devil's Pit with Drone Camps. Watch the full Avant review and watch the daring flight demo at the end.

You only get one chance. Don't Crash guys...

AVANT Quad is here: www.avantquads.com

Full Review of the AVANT NEX X4

What I liked -

- BLUE CARBON! Yes I have seen it before. But I like it.
- Durable little 180 frame
- 4mm Carbon unibody frame
- 2mm top and side plates
- Dove tail shaped rear of the quad is smart. Weight reduction and classy design here guys.
- RS2205 2600kv Motors
- 20A Littlebee Escs
- 4" Props
- Already came with Betaflight ready.
- SpRacing F3 Flight Controller
- 3mm standard motor shafts
- Flies with 3S or 4S batteries
- Rips on a 4S 1300mah 90C Tattu R.Line Battery
- 5.8Ghz, 200mw Video Transmitter
- Standard FC/Pdb stack and easy to build frame.
- Avant Battery strap held up in my testing. I break straps a lot.
- Runcam Swift / HS 1177 Compatible Camera housing
- Cam tilt-able up to 70 degrees
- High power to weight ratio.
- Roomie enough to add a painless receiver with no problem over the FC.

CONS:
- I would like to see more colors available for purchase.
- No other gripes with this quad yet.

Over all score: 5 out of 5.

The reason I gave this quad 5 stars is simply because I can't find anything wrong with it. It flies on rails in Betaflight defaults. The motors and escs are a winning combo with the frame. It was like a rocket ship in the pit. I would like to see more carbon colors available from Avant in the future.

- Optional Gimbal support
- Detailed Radio with GPS inside for follow me
- Sturdy construction and parts
- 15min Flight time
- Low battery red led light
- Close to out of range red LED warning light

with a regular charger.
- Does include a charger that can charge two batteries at once.
- 2 Sets of 6" props included
- Altitude hold
- GPS Hold
- Compass calibration is easy to perform
- Transmitter strap included
- 3" clearance for the landing gear for adding a gimbal

- Additional LEDs in the front.
- You can use any 6" props. Not a proprietary prop setup!

CONS:
- I like the credit card style gimbal myself. The other gimbal
than comes with it seems to get ok video. A Runcam 2 has better
video and more vivid colors.
- Manual was not easy to read. Bad google translation.

This quadcopter comes setup with CC3D and ready to go in Libre Pilot. This racer is really mild or can be a beast on full throttle. If you are looking for a quad with plenty of cargo space and power. This quad has plenty of room and power to share.

Lumenier Qav-X Charpu - Overview and Pro Review + Parts list.

The Qav-X Charpu edition racing quad is wicked to fly. It has a super light weight frame and high power system. There is no other quad I have flown this year that feels this light and powerful in the air. I have let others who fly the popular Alien quads fly this and they say it feels way lighter in the air. Even holding it in their hands they notice how light it is. This is no hog folks... Lightweight and fast! The Qav-x gets 5 Stars even before I had it totally tuned in Betaflight. Definitely selling my Vortex Pro.

Lumenier QAV-X Charpu Edition Kit Review. Pro Parts List and links
can be found below the review article.

PROS:

- 3mm or 4mm bottom plate available.
- 3mm is very durable. I did crash it into a steel post. Did not break.
- Low profile frame and stack. I really like this.
- Pinless build setup. Direct solder your wires to each board.
- Use a pinless X4R receiver and hide it under the pdb.
- Lumenier RX2205-12s are way light and powerful
- Lumenier tri-props perform better than the Bull nose Dals.
- Power OSD Pro is absolutely the bomb. Easy to solder up
and connect your camera and video transmitter straight to.
- Lumenier 1200 mini cam works great. Even with my Fatsharks.
- The Charpu X frame has a ton of vertical boost at full throttle
and floats as light as a feather in Airmode. So much time between the air and the ground you can do multiple tricks.

NEW Radiolink AT9S Transmitter& Receiver Review.

How to bind a receiver and use with SBUS for quadcopters.
And a full overview of transmitter specs.


The RadioLink AT9S is an economical alternative to the popular Taranis, Spektrum, and Futuba Radios. At $140 you get a radio with PPM, PWM, ad SBUS capabilities for flying multirotors, planes, gliders, rc cars, and helicopters. The receivers are affordable between $12 and $29. The nicest thing about the AT9S is the ease of use. It has a push-button bind feature on the receiver. Simply turn on the radio, power up the aircraft and push the button and the radio automatically binds. Very easy to use.

XK A1200 Fpv Plane Review

I eagerly charged up the flight battery. Took 2 mins to build by adding two screws to the tail and snapped the wing together. Added the JF-01 Fpv camera/tx, and I was ready to fly! This is a full flight demo and review. One of my favorite and best flying planes so far this year. The A1200 is going to stay in my hanger. I got mine from gear best.

Did you fly it yet? Any opinions?

Drone Camps RC - Full Review

PROS:
- LONG FLIGHT TIME... 20mins+
- Super durable EPO Foam. This is the most dense foam available.
- Fun to fly and fpv. So relaxing in 6G stabilize mode. Just cruise
and look around at your surroundings.
- The extra red JST plug coming off the ESC is for plugging in an FPV cam setup that can handle 7.2 volts or more. Don't plug in a 5 volt cam system into this!
- 2S 2000mah battery ( affordable to buy more ).
- Two versions available: FPV version and Non-Fpv version
- Non-Fpv version $125 ready to fly! Come on thats awesome.
- Low power draw motor for long flights.
- Comes with a switch for turning on and off the stabilization board.
- Mildly suitable for long range Fpv experience.
- Comes with 3 flight modes
- Wing snaps off for easy transport.
- servo wires dont hang out. It has micro jst plugs!
- Rear facing "pusher prop" is great for belly landings.
- Comes with an extra prop
- Comes with a good transmitter
- Suitable for a beginner to advanced pilot

CONS:
- Hand launching for the first time is a little sketchy. The auto-level will make the plane appear to wag up and down on launch. The auto-level will be fighting to keep it level as you gain altitude.

Star Rating: 5 out of 5.

Product size (L x W x H): 22.50 x 89.50 x 120.00 cm / 8.86 x 35.24 x 47.24 inches

My IDEAFLY F210 just came in this week. This is a decent fpv quad for anybody who wants to start out in fpv. It comes with a 3S Battery so it flies way more mild than some more aggressive racer quads. When you are ready you can fly on 4S and turn up the rates in Cleanflight.

Pretty cool quad with everything you need for some fpv fun. Check out the field test and some bench tips for yours to make sure it's setup properly.

Drone Camps RC - PROS vs CONS :

Who it's for:
Beginner / Intermediate / Expert Level Quad Racer

PROS:
- 3mm carbon fiber frame.
- Low Cost
- 3S battery suitable for mild to wild flights.
- Comes setup with horizon and barometer modes
- Use Cleanflight to make Flight controller changes
- F3 SpRacing Flight Controller
- Compatible with other controllers and receivers ( Taranis, Futuba, Spectrum)
- Boscam - 10 Video Freq Channels
- 700 Tvl camera
- Good carbon housing around camera for protection
- 5min flight time
- 2204 Motors
- 2 Sets of 5" props
- Motor guards
- Industrial plastic landing gear

CONS:
- Needed receiver antennas moved behind camera deck
- Video transmitter was heat shrinked so I could not find the
channel switch button. I had to cut a hole in the heat shrink to
find it. Not a big deal. I would like to see them use clear heat
shrink so we can see it in the future.

Star Rating: 4.5 out of 5.
- 5 for the vtx and receiver antenna placement.
