  1. Goblin Build Pt 1 Unboxing

    It Has Begun!!!

    The build of the Goblin 380 has begun. For those that do not know, this helicopter was donated to Rc-Help by Syndicate on YouTube. I have tried to get him to sign up on here, but at this time, he has not done so yet. I'm still trying lol.

    This helicopter is being built by the members of Rc-Help and we have 6 people who have supported this build, not including myself. This build is split up into parts to reflect each segment of the build per the manual.

    In this video, I...

  3. Ikon2 Installation & Wiring #rchbacktobasics #keeprchelisalive

    In this video I show you how to install and wire the Align 450 to the Ikon 2 Gyro. The helicopter I'm using in this video is the Align 450 Pro V2 With The Align 450L Dominator Frame so I can put the gyro inside the frame. Everything about this helicopter is stock Align Pro V2 including all of the electronics.

  4. Installing The Ikon 2 Configurator #rchbacktobasics

    Installing the Ikon Configurator may seem simple to some, but for those that have little to no experience with computers they may not know how, and that is what this series is going to cover.

    We are starting a brand new series that is called RCH Back To Basics (#RCHBackToBasics) to get back into some of the things that we all have to deal with when we first get into the hobby. If you have suggestions on what you would like to see in future videos, post them in the comment section below!...
  5. Simulators & Why You Need One

    Everyone that has been in this hobby for a while already knows the benefits of having a simulator. But for those that are new to the hobby, justifying spending $150+ on what some consider a game is quite hard to do. Well I'm here to tell you, that $150 investment will pay for itself, very quickly!

    The two hottest Simulators out there right now are Phoenix and RealFlight. I prefer Phoenix because you get lifetime updates compared to RealFlight where you have to purchase updates. We are not...

  8. Qx 110 "interior Traversing Machine" (their Words, Not Mine!)

    I was hit up on my email from a vendor asking if I wanted to do a review on YET ANOTHER cheap POS plastic quad, and I said NO! Instead I asked if they wanted to send this one and they agreed. The link to it is below if you don't believe they call it an "Interior Traversing Machine" lmao.

    If this was an Eachine, it would be called the EX 110 and not the QX. I have no idea why...

    Below are a couple links that you may need to get this thing going. First is a completely stock dump file that I...
  9. Furibee F36 Quadcopter Review

    GearBest sent me this quad for xmas and I figured why not do a review on it. My thoughts on this little guy are about like they are on the Eachine E010, but it feels like this little guy has more punch than a stock E010. With that being said, if I had to choose between this one and the E010, I think I would go with this one! It is just a fantastic little quad to start out on!

  10. Complete Cc3d Beginner Setup Guide

    In this video, I show you how to do everything from program the transmitter (in my case, a DX9) to the maiden flight switching through all of the different flight modes.

    Setup of the CC3D is very easy thanks to the Setup Wizard. Just follow along and you will have your CC3D in the air in no time. The only thing that you will have to setup that is not in the wizard is your flight modes. I go through that as well in this video.

    Have a watch, tell me what you think and ask questions.
  11. Flash Cleanflight On Your Cc3d

    In this video, I show you just how easy it is to flash CleanFlight on your CC3D Flight Controller. The first thing you need to do is download the OpenPilot GCS and download the Cleanflight.cc3d.bin file which are linked below. Once you have those, you need to go into your Google Chrome Web Store and download the Cleanflight-Configurator. I have linked the Configurator below as well. Once you have those 3 items, you are ready to install CleanFlight onto your CC3D.

  12. P.i.d. Tuning Explained

    In this article, I'm hoping to explain what PID is, what it is used for and how to tune it. PID has become a way of life for the RC Industry, especially with quadcopters. So what is PID?

    First, lets break it down into each letter...
    P - Proportional (Kp). This is the gain that corrects what has already happened. Using a quad as an example, lets say the quad is at a 45º angle, and it wants an angle of 0º or flat. The Proportional gain is going to sense thequad is located at 45º and is...

  14. Eken H8r Action Camera Review

    As ou all know, I lost my Mobius in a crash that killed the board and Jason over at Banggood suggested this camera to replace it. In the video below, you will see what I think about this camera.

    If you have this camera, post up and let me know what you think about it.
  15. Anglink Dx300 & Dx400 Power Inverter Review

    I decided to go ahead and put both of these videos in the same thread since they are virtually the same. The only difference between the two is the DX400 is 100w more power and the DX400 has an extra 2.4a USB port. The lack of voltage still worries me a little bit though but not enough to keep me from using them with electronics that are NOT sensitive. Have a watch and let me know what you think about these inverters.
