Seems we are not allow to post a free quad on here.

No idea why they wouldn't allow a free quad for someone to be given away. Not everything is a scam.

Jeez RC Groups.

Just go watch our Drone Camps Youtube Channel.

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

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

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
