Getting a couple of my older but still top of my best quadcopters list ready to take out for a fly.Hmm I think of that I should do a video or something of my favorites of all time to date,got some older ones and some new ones,it would be an interesting comparison I think.Anyhow back to this evening flyers,I have my Walkera Rodeo 150 ready to go,Stiill loving this one,a decent fpv flyer in my opinion and really nice for los flying.
Also I have my XK 252 which is a really nice quadcopter,seems support for this one has faded sadly as it is a very capable machine.I like everything about this one but one thing,they really limited this quadcopter with the propriety battery it uses,really wish it used a. common battery as I find it becoming hard to find replacement batteries for it,at some point I assume I will be needing to modify it's battery setup.
Anyhow,I am off for some quality flying time ! Cheers!

Here is my full test flight and review of the new Eachine E010S Pro micro fpv quadcopter.
I gotta say this one is a blast to fly fpv indoors and also very fun for some outdoor fpv flying.The 5.8G 40CH 800TVL Camera supply a clear video signal with good range.Also has OSD which is useful for monitoring battery voltage. The Lemon F3 Flight Control is set up nice out of the box and is available in DSM2 Receiver Flysky Receiver Frsky Compatible Receiver configuration.

And here is my test flight and review video

Well i,just got this quad and was waiting for a chance to try it out,got home late,thought I would go for a night flight but blew it put it in a tree!Was not the best selling it to fly at night and the lights on this quad are not really bright as well.I should be able to get it back in the daylight,maybe it will rain before then and this will get a good waterproof test test as well .Looking for a bright side here.

Been going back through some of my older quadcopters and getting in some flights on them.I guess I could call this my "keeper" series.Some of these may not be available anymore which is unfortunate as manufacturers are moving so fast to pump out new stuff or in this quadcopters case the company may be gone now.Fortunately this kind of a universal quadcopter which parts should be easy to find as it is basically a Eachine Racer 250.I plan on giving this basher a tune up and keep it air worthy as long as possible !

What can I say?The Vkar Bison is my current favorite r/c ground vehicle.It is fast with the stock powerful brushless motor, 3s lipo battery and if you are running the 120 amp esc version like mine it will handle a 4s battery and be even more wild!
Is it perfect?no but you bash anything hard enough it wil break .
Dollars for fun and with a huge following and parts easy to find the VKAR Bison is a fantastic R/C

Here is some of the fun I had with it

I recently received this Furbee F90 fpv quadcopter from Gearbest to review ,unfortunately I can not get it to connect to Betaflight ,that being said I am unable to arm the motors to fly this quadcopter as it is necessary to set up this in the Betaflight configurator.
I will be sending this inquary to Gearbest in hope to find a solution.

So winter has been in full affect in my area, and been stuck indoors for my r/c fun for a bit .I installed a plate on the bottom of my Vkar Bison for added strength,apparently they now come with one installed now so that's good for new buyer's of the Bison,wish I waited a month on my purchase ,would have saved a few dollars .Anyhow waiting for things to get above 0 degrees outside .Till then inside flying for me
