Halloa people

for a video-quad project, I was looking for a GOOD 3D gimbal. This time not so much a budget-driven choise.. I just wanted something that workes well..
After quite a bit of research, I decided on getting the Feiyu Tech Mini3D..

Link to this gimbal: Link link link

In this first video I've tried to give you a good impression of what the gimbal does.. I will probably add more aerial video's to this thread once I have the video-quad all setup..

Howdy people

Sooo.. I've waiting for the JJRC X1 to become available for a while now.. A Brushless quad in the Dromida / Vista size I think if it has been done right, it might be the end of us farting around with geared brushed quads?

Link to the quad: JJRC X1

Has anybody seen it being available anywhere yet?

Cheers from the netherlands

Halloa people

I came across this small little FPV monitor that you'd attach to your (sun-)glasses, and then have an FPV monitor for 1 eye:

Link to the display: Click click click

What are Your thoughts on that? I really wonder if everything ellse you see wouldn't be to distracting.
It would offcourse be far from emersive, but I guess that's not the point.. It might be usefull if you just use FPV to line up shots..

Hey! You can be your own spotter with this!

And.. maybe people here have allready tried this one?

Hello people
I picked up this affordable Eachine 800TVL FPV set with 600mW VTX, to see if it was any good
In this video I'll unbox it and give you some tips & info.

I'll do a more in depth review of it after having used it a while..
