I was given an opportunity to review a little FPV camera and I jumped on it. What I didn't expect is what I received. This has to be one of the best little cameras I have ever tried. It is a CCD camera, mine is IR Sensitive so it will do much better in low light and will even work in the pitch dark with IR LED to illuminate your surroundings. Do I suggest flying at night, hell no lol, but you could with this camera. If you would like better image quality (better colors) then you can get...
I have had enough of not being in FPV! So I ordered the cheapest goggles that I possibly could, and that is the Quantum V2 Pro goggles. At $36 you can't beat it. Unfortunately, at the time of the order they were out here in the states and I had to order it from china where shipping was over $25!!! I should have waited because 4 days later, they were in stock one state over from me... Go figure. So the FPV Series begins with the Goggles!!! VRX and VTX are on their way to me. More to come...
The Eachine TS835 Video Transmitter is a fantastic transmitter for the price. But it does have some downfalls. For the good, it's powerful, great signal strength and works well in the trees. The downside of this VTX is the output voltage for the Video Camera is only 4.92 volts and most cameras require at least 5 volts. And yes, the .08 volt makes the difference between having a video, and a black screen. Enjoy the video and don't forget to click that like button. Eachine TS835...
Time and time again I hear people that are worried about soldering those pins on the flight control boards. In this video, I show you just how easy it really is to solder those pins. It takes all of about 5 minutes (10 if you have never done it before) and if you follow what I show in this video, you will end up with a great looking job every time. Don't forget to give this video a thumbs up! [MEDIA=youtube]oP8Cuqy1Ui8[/MEDIA]
After a few members told me about these servos, I hit up Jason over at Banggood to see if I could get my hands on them. He agreed and sent them to me. In the video below, I explain the servos which are already installed in my SE V2. If it could have gone wrong, it did go wrong on this video. Including completely smashing my helicopter into the ground on a test flight, but this was not the fault of the servos, they did exactly what they were supposed to do. Have a watch and tell me what you...
I thought I would go ahead and post this here since we can use this just like the 6 port charger that I reviewed a while back. Except this time, you can charge your stuff in your car instead of having to have AC power. Have a watch. It's a short video. Click this link to get yours today!

Had this sent to me from Anglink and I have to say, this is going to be a big help in charging multiple packs for the little quads that have USB only chargers. Have a watch and let me know what you think. AngLink 50W 6 Port Desktop USB Charger Review - YouTube
Banggood sent me a little hex and I had to get it up in the air. Unfortunately, it was quite windy outside today but that didn't stop me from getting this hex in the air. When you order this hex, you are going to have to install the sticks into the Tx as well as 3 AA batteries. You are also going to have to install all 6 of the motors onto the frame. It's a simple plug in, push on and install a screw. From there, you get a very stable little flier for first time pilots if you are not in...
Forgot to upload this last night. This is what is being called the worlds smallest hexacopter! and if flies like a larger hex. Very easy to fly, very stable and has a SICK piro rate in high rates. Best of all, it's cheap! Click on the link below to check it out on Banggood's site.

I wasnt sure where to post this, hope it's ok here..... I recently picked up a 'Hobby Eagle A3 Super II' flight stabiliser. I got it locally but these things are available from a number of places including Banggood for about $27, or a bit more if you want the programming box (highly recommended) These things are far more advanced than any of the stabilisers I've tried before: Features Works with all major receiver brands including Spektrum, Futaba, Hitec, JR, Tactic, and more....
This is the longest it has ever taken to do a review video and I have to say, it was worth the wait. I have read multiple reviews of this quad and I heard everything from it's WiFi on the FPV (which it's NOT) and it doesn't handle ANY wind (which it does). Well, I put it all to the test in the video below! And I have to say, it felt good to be in front of a camera again and flying again even if I DON'T and NEVER WILL have an FAA number! Have a watch and let me know what you think!...
It has taken me way too long to get this done, but here it is. And I have to say, this hex is a mean little thing. Watch the video to see it attack me! Friggin thing hahaha. WLtoys Q272 Hexacopter Drone Product Review - YouTube
I was pretty excited to get this balancer in the mail. I have been wanting one like this for quite some time now. But never wanted to drop the coinage on it. Now that I have used it, I'm kicking myself for waiting! This balancer can do just about anything from props, to entire helicopter heads to wheels and tires to clutch fan assemblies, they all mount on this fantastic ballancer! Have a look at the video and be sure to post up your questions, comments and suggestions! OCDAY...
If you are looking to get into any hobby, most likely you are going to look for some good deals on used products. In this video, I show you what you are more than likely going to get. I purchased both of these trucks for a really good deal and I couldn't pass it up. Such a good deal as a matter of fact, that the issues I found when looking at them was not an issue. Take a look at the video to see what you could possibly get for a little amount of money on a used nitro truck. And...
In this video, I show you how to completely tear down the engine out of your Traxxas T-Maxx. This is not as hard as some would like you to think. We start by pulling the engine out of the truck, followed by removing the ez start then removing the backplate, sleeve, piston & rod and crank after removing the clutch bell, clutch, and flywheel. And if you want to see a very nasty engine, this is it. This is NOT what you want your engine to look like. As always, if you have any questions,...
