Greetingz readers,

Yesterday went the backyard field to train myself a lil bit more with that new way to fly...

Flew 2 lipos... the second one was his last... A R2205 2500kv SunnySky motor fried while flying!!!

So crash and almost lost GoPro...

The motor has now a freaking bad smell... and it has builtin braking forever now .... ( copper wires wielded together... )

I question seriously the quality of these motors... It was my fourth flights with them and never crashed...

My First combo didn't last long too... was an R2205 2300kv... I crashed them in a grass field one times they were already unusable after this (one crash YEA Ball bearings from 3 motors were deads)...

In other side my PULSO COBRA CP GOLDEN LASTED WAY MORE THAN THAT.... I'm still flying with them they have crashed a lot!!! even on ASPHALT!!!

Just swapped ball bearings and they still flies smooth....

To me it's obvious... QUALITY of THESE SunnySky R2205 Is freaking questionable...

Top perfromance : 8/10
Quality: 5/10
Look: 7/10
Durability: 2/10

Having a bad time...

Greetingz readers!

If you look for some quality ball bearing...

https://www.aliexpress.com/item/10pc...751291655.html

These are my best from all those I did test since a year now...

Freaking durable... Crashed lot but they are still smooth...

I do use them for my PULSO COBRA CP GOLDEN 2205... original one are too expensive...

Have fun, go fly & pick up nice gear

Greetingz readers,

It was a test, I got inspired from Sean FPV, but had none 6S battery :/

I had to make my own xp about it. So I did and there the result.

GoPro mount+GoPro is around 140gr more added to the kwad 493gr...

The props used was a mistake...

Shud have used 2 blades high pitched props...

Anyway 4S isn't enouf... 5S would be better and I intimately guess 6S would be just perfect...

Without GoPro mount and GoPro using Gemfan 5046 dual blade on 4S it's a bullet! But flight time reduced to 2mins...

I'll make some DVR footage soon...

Looks like you got an update from my Ridge Racer!

Have fun, go fly!

Greetingz readers,

Bought an EWRF E709TM3 with FC mounting holes

First look VERY OK.

Then I did try to config the VTX to fit the default channel from my predator goggle...

And surprise...

I did believe that the number blinking after band and channel was just an error....

Then discovered on my goggle I was able to pick many frequencies sending the video signal...

As you will discover bands naming is wrong... You should refer to the frequency blinking after band and channel.

I'll buy a new one finally!!!

Have fun, go fly! (and learn from your mistakes...)

Greetingz readers,

Some legit pictures I've done from my kwads...

Maybe way better than reading the spam reviews around...

Dunno... It's up to you.

Have fun, go fly!

Greetings readers,

I dunno how is the story with your Runcam3 but mine died herself just by staying on the desk...

I never had an hard crash... The camera just look like brand new... But it's dead after only 2 months~ ...

So I have opened the camera to see if something is noticeable... and yea... both batteries "puffed!"

One of them spread chemical outside battery...

Finally bought a GoPro session, I now think I shud have done this first!!!

To the next times, readers!

Hey readers,

Received some new FLASH 5152...
Didn't screw them before testing them this times
Well the feel is, when I do blink my eyes while punching out... The kwad move too fast...
These props are very good! Thumb up!

Video when the crappy VTX is replaced...

Have fun, go fly!

Hey readers!

Looks like I've done something...

Here is the replacement base plate for the Realacc Y frame...
For me the 200 frame were too flexible... adding an insane noise reaching the FC even soft mounted...

So, well I've made a replacement...
I give you the dev files and a picture... you'll need FreeCAD to play with the files and export to the format you need...
It's 5mm should be very solid!

A gift from the sky!

Have fun, go fly!

Hey readers,

I'm building a new machine...
And I'm running into a glitch...
I need a new camera and vtx...
if you are kind to send this... I'll show the result there on my blog as well...
Don't think I can't afford a camera and vtx... you would be wrong
Contact me if you are kind.

Regards.

Hey readers,

It's been a while I had post about it...
I've now gathered enough data while flying
To me inner mounting is the best mounting...
I dunno how explain my feel, but I can say that the "feel" while flying inner mounting is way better than outter...
Only bad point the arms looks to broke more easily using the inner mounting...

Have fun, go fly!

Hey readers,

First of all thanks to all the ppl feeding the RC with their ideas/labors! We know why we do this, We like this! and it's an awesome hobby...

Today I went out to fly with my ridge racer, the result isn't very good because I'm not comfortable enough with that new QX7 transmitter and my old VRD2 to record some footages... (I usually fly fatquack now...)

Anyway, I'll do more videos with this new machine in future... Hope you like.

Hey readers,

I'm sincerely "Tired" of affiliate links... It's like 90% of the blog stream...
You could have more respect by having something interesting to tell/show about rc...

Best regards.

First read the manual set 25mw for your VTX and unplug it...
Bind your tx...
Check everything is fine...
FAILSAFE...
Then look at the pictures for the rest...

Then use blheli suite to enable programming tx...
Disconnect from blheli, unplug battery then re plug...
Reconnect blheli, calibrate your escs... if you follow pictures, use 1000-1900.
When done reconnect to blheli and disable programming tx!
Then you are done with calibration, unplug battery...

At this step you should be done to check if your motors heats while hovering also it should fix vibrations...

I know I suck at explanation... I'm not teacher in mind...
Ask if u feel stuck......Continue Reading
