Eachine QX65 Review | Inspect, Binding, Betaflight Setup and Flight Test | Project Mockingbird Tip (29 min 45 sec)

I have flown Eachine's E010 and E013, but I consider the QX65 as their first proper tiny whoop. In this review I take you through inspection, show you how to bind to your transmitter, setup in betaflight and show you how it flies. Also, check below for a link to a tutorial on how to setup the QX65 with Project Mockingbird PIDS and settings.

Since the video is on the long side, here's a legend so you can go right to the information you're looking for:

Are Refurbished DJI Drones Worth it? | Refurbished DJI Phantom 4 (8 min 24 sec)

I looked really hard for blemishes and obvious signs of use. The questions I had prior to buying a refurbished Phantom 4 included: What kind of warranty do you get? What happens if something is wrong with it when I get it? I try to answer some of those questions with this video.

Mfi Bluetooth Controller for the Ryze Tech Tello Drone | Madcatz C.T.R.L.i Review | Part 3 (13 min 40 sec)

This bluetooth controller works specifically with Apple devices, but there are several others available for Android users. Ryze recommends Gamesir and Gamevice controllers for Android users. There are also Gamesir and Gamevice controllers compatible with Apple devices, but they run $80 or more. This glossy blue MadCatz controller was $29.99 out on Amazon.

KingKong (LDARC) ET115 Micro FPV Racing Drone Review - My New Favorite! (27 min 1 sec)

This one checks all the boxes for me. The only things I would add are an OSD and the ability to tilt the camera. Other than that, this has been the most trouble free micro out of the box.

WINGLESCOUT XT-1 Foldable Mavic Pro Clone Review and Flight Test (15 min 25 sec)
