We've been waiting for these radios to hit the market for awhile now. We finally got our hands on them and are excited to try them out and see what our customers think. Early prototypes showed some flaws but frsky was quick to rework them for the production launch. It took many months of tweaking but finally they have released them and they look great! The upgrade switches and pots feel really nice and when holding the radio in your hands, it has a very comfortable and natural feel for placement of components. If your looking for a new radio with lots of high end features at a very reasonable price, check out the new Frsky Horus X10!

We also just got a special order from Runcam, the new Runcam Split V2 has arrived along with the Eagle2 Pro and the new Rotor riot edition Swift2! These cameras are amazing, the new split has finally fixed many of the issues people had with the v1. The Eagle2 pro now has 16:9/4:3 switchable aspect, 170 degree fov and hd like image. The RR Swift 2 has a special mode that only comes with the RR edition to enhance video image clarity.

Hey Guys and Gals, I'm really excited to show off the new Xnova 2207 lightning series motor. This bad boy is a race spec motor designed specifically for fpv racing in . Xnovas have the highest build quality of any mini quad motor currently on the market. There performance is next level and are starting to become the go to motor for serious top racers, at 32g each these are going to set some seriously fast lap times. Even freestyle pilots will enjoy the lower to mid kv versions as they are unmatched in performance and quality.

Ok Folks,

We've decided to do a massive price dump on the Vortex 250 ARF Kit, comes with the zipper case AND 2 free Pulse 4s 1550 75c lipos for just $299! W.T.F. is my boss thinking? Who knows so take advantage of this retardedly cheap deal. You won't see anyone selling it this cheap anywhere, probably not even used and with 2 brand new 75c pulse lipos! This is perfect for beginners looking to get into fpv racing/freestyle or even seasoned pilots looking for something easy to get back in the air with. Check it out right now at Rotorquest.com, very limited quantities and once there gone thats it!

I'm really excited for this new product, the Hobbywing Xrotor F4 flight controller and 40a 4in1 esc combo. Hobbywing is the benchmark and industry standard when it comes to speed controller performance and durability. If you look at any serious mini quad motor thrust test results, you will always see the xrotor esc pumping out the best numbers. In the past they were too big to use on mini quads but now they've got their products lined up with current fpv standards.
Even though you may never need 40a capability, it doesn't hurt to have it. From my experience, the bigger the fets and higher amp draw capability usually results in faster responses and better performance as well as durability. In the past I used to run small esc's for the weight savings aspect but with frames and motors getting lighter and lighter, we can run bigger batteries and gear and still have the optimal performance we're all after.

Now with Hobbywings entry into the flight controller market, they made a good decision to go with the F4. Dshot 150/300/600/1200 capable, as well as Multishot/Oneshot42/Oneshot125 and PWM protocols supported. F4 is becoming the new standard now and the coding for the firmwares is beginning to peak at F3 limits so HW is on track with this newest entry into the fc market. Betaflight osd, sd card slot, pin bank to stack directly with the 40a 4in1 esc and Xrotor quality makes this combo a top offering in todays market.

Hobbywing has always been known as a top performer in other RC fields and now they have put down a serious contender in the fpv market. I am looking forward to trying this out and any of there future offerings for fpv!
