TBS Caipirinha I bought new when these first released and must say the Foam TBS uses is very Durable , I Modified the Wing a Bit By Strengthening the Nose with 1/6" Carbon Fiber, to make it solid as I knew I would Not use a GoPro , I also Made a Beefier Motor Mount to house the ESC with the Same Material and Clear Laminated the Entire Wing! This is a Jewel I love this Wing, Using all TBS Electronics came in a PNP ,, was a Bit tricky learning to Launch Properly but with Proper Balancing and Proper input throws its one of My favorite Park Fliers ,, I have not added any FPV Equipment or made any Major Cut ins as I moved to other Projects, but look forward to Experimenting with a V2 that is still in the Corner !!

Vas Specter Bought the Kit from StoneBlueAirlines Several Months ago and Had a Blast on the Build , Inside the Compartment The Rx is Team Black Sheep Full size Crossfire 1.3 Ghz With Immersion 5.8Ghz 600 MW Vtx Mounted Out on the Wing,, a Fatshark 700 TVL Camera implanted within the Nose ! Running all Recommended Power System and Electronics From VAS Using a 3S 5200 The Black Fuselage Covering I did with 1/16" thick Black color Board,, then Ironed Clear Mono,, it worked very well and Highly took the Place of chloroplast,, Flight Times Exceeded 32 Minutes if I was Not Hammering Away ,, The Foam on these Kits are Like Battle Tanks Very Strong, This was one of My builds... I just slowly Built Up in a 3 Week time!! Would Buy Another !!

I have had the Mini Drake Built up now for Several Weeks and Must say Drake has some very Impressive Kits,, The tracking on the Mini and Speed is very Impressive, and I used all the recommended, Electronics!! I decided against using Paint and used the Carbon Fiber Sheet To accent the wing Prior to Laminating. No Fear after the Maiden of Adding my Spare Vector Mini to Send this one out! Only Other Mods Made,, I used the Boopido Wing Joiners which allows me to break the bird Down and travel through tight Rough Terran Should the day ever Come !! Very Impressed and will invest more in the Future with Mr. Drake!

Today I had what could of been a horrible mishap with 3s lipos Floureon 1500 mah and a Venom dual Charger , I Charged 4 of them up at 2.6 amp to go out for a couple quick flights, Something came up,,plans changed , and as always I set the charger to store my 4 lipos about 3 hrs after they were charged ,,as I don't like to keep them up on a full charge if I'm not gonna fly them.. The first 2 stored fine , plugged in the next 2 and to be clear these lipos only have about 6 Cycles each at most no crashes no lose wires,, I'm anal on my connectors ,,, 30 minutes into the Storage mode I began to smell Smoke in the house ,, In my hangar Room the charger was on a top shelf and with planes hanging on the ceiling 30 seconds more I believe I would not of been able to control the fire !! Still so uncertain on what it could of been , I bought that Charger new ,, when they first came out and used it numerous times but if you study the pictures of the Charger it appears it started from within the Charger itself Because the lipo had just started burning when I turned the corner ,,,Any feedback on what might of caused this I'd like to hear ideas... I never thought this would happen to me ! But luckily I caught it prior to my house burning down , The bad thing I'm out a Charger , burned a hole in my carpet , the Shelf it was on was a loss, and Brand new Eflite shoestring got a little Grilled that was hanging above the blaze !!! O let me mention the worst a Pissed off Wife lol !!
