Hi guys

The excellent HGLRC XJB 145 is only $106 at present using the code IT$RCqc01. This is the lowest price it has ever been by some margin.

Product link is here (it is an affiliate link) :

I've been running the AKK FX2 VTX for about 4 months now in my primary racing rig and am really pleased with the performance, especially given it is a $19 vtx. Key features are:
  • Smart audio
  • 30.5mm stack mounting
  • Switchable 25mW/200mW/500mW/800mW output
  • MMCX antenna connector
  • Microphone
  • 7-24v input

In summary it has been an excellent receiver with a clean signal in racing situations where I've run with up to 6 pilots. It is reliable and easily mounts on a standard 30.5mm stack. For me performance is on par with the Matek and TBS unify receivers which I've also used but at a fraction of the cost.

Everytime I go out the Furibee X215 is my last quad standing because it is so tough!

I've made some recent changes to improve the FPV feed including the install of a micro CCD camera (much better light transition and lower latency) plus converted the VTX antenna from RP SMA to the more common SMA.

Both of these changes have improved the FPV experience for me greatly and give me more confidence to run in trick light conditions.

Here's 3 of the latest I've chosen from Gearbest.

The X140 and Kopis are back near their best price ever but I'm loving the price on this ESC - 40a BlHeli_S 4 in 1 that will do 6s for only $25!

Clinking the links below will take you through to my coupons page with more product detail, codes and other specials I've picked out previously.

$25 4 in 1 30a 6s ESC with 30.5mm mount

$107 Furibee X140 3" quad with FRSKY receiver

Good news, Gearbest are finally offering some deals reminscent of their old bargains that we haven't seen since New Year. It's a hodge-podge mix so I've picked out the best. All but the Kopis below are at historically low prices.

All details and historical specials here: http://quadifyrc.weebly.com/coupons-and-discounts.html

Taranis QX7 FRSKY transmitter - $92 with code GB100-$20off

GEPRC MX3 Sparrow - $169 with code GB100-$10off (This is easily the best 3" power quad I've had and is superior to the HGLRC XJB)

Furibee F36 brushed micro quad - $7 with code GBSale165 (Great presents to hook friends and family into quads or add an AIO cam to make it into a whoop)

Holybro Kopis 5" racing drone - $229 with code GB100-$10off (This is the one Bardwell helped developed. Well balanced and flies very nicely)

Their overall specials page is hard to navigate and even harder to tell the final price which is why I've separated the good ones above. Here is the link anyway: https://www.gearbest.com/promotion-C...?lkid=14076088

The Happymodel Snapper7 is the first brushless whoop (super micro with gaurded props) that has actually delivered on expectations - same size and flight time as a brushed ducted micro quad that can run safely indoors but with the power to execute and recover from acrobatic flight.

The price is comparable to BNF brushed whoops like the Kingkong tiny6x but being brushless it offers a lot more and the 'standard' pack comes complete with 3 batteries and an excellent 6-port filed/home charger ($95 retail at present)

It's very easy to recommend this model after several disappointments in the super micro brushless class. It is light enough to run safely indoors without damaging anything like a tiny whoop but powerful enough to do real acro an run outdoors.

My full review including discussion of specs, full betaflight setup and flight discussion can be found here:

It's been a good while since Gearbest have had any good quad specials on, I noticed their website has improved so maybe that is where the focus has been. Anyway I've posted my pick of specials below at http://quadifyrc.weebly.com/coupons-and-discounts.html

I like the fact that both the TX200 and an OEM CCD micro camera are both on special meaning you can upgrade your AIO camera in your brushless micro to a CCD cam with variable power vtx for less than $30. More details on this here for the leader.

Emax BabyHawk R for $122

Tattu 3s 450mah battery for $9

Tattu 3s 850mah battery for $12

Tattu 3s 850mah battery for $16

Leader 120 PNF 2.5" brushless quad for $110

Full Speed TX200 25/200mW VTX $10

Furibee MS Micro CCD Camera $18

HAKRC 20A 4in1 2-4s 20mm ESC $17

Emax LHCP pagoda antennas (pair) $5

I've just completed my review for the Babyhawk R 136mm (3 inch version). Although at first I didn't find anything about the specs of this micro quad that great, the way that they come together means that is is much better than the sum of it's parts.

Further to that the PIDs that are supplied by Emax are really good and allow me to fly much tighter in proximity with more confidence.

The robustness of the frame, the well thought out components and community support make this little quad pretty easy to recommend to a micro quad newcomer or FPV drones in general.

Of course being a lightweight 3inch you also have more confidence flying in smaller areas where it is much more quiet and less frightening to on-lookers than 5" or larger quads.

Check out my review here:

Battery voltage is probably the most important telemetry you can get from your quad to stop battery damage however you can get a lot of false alarms especially in quads that use small battery cells and powerful motors (micros or 5" with large motors on 4s).

Rather than dropping warning voltage and damaging batteries, you can get it to ignore short term sags by changing the hysteresis value.
