FPV – A Faster Cut
Really did it this time. Caught up with my learning – and flew the heck out of it.
A Simple 3″ HD Drone (DJI FPV)
This is the tale of a newly built drone, arising from a broken arm on an actual new DJI FPV HD drone, and the fact that I had on hand an analog 3″ drone I was no longer interested in flying. I had an iFlight Titan DC2 that I got a month back. A nice flying quad … Which met an untimely end after colliding with a basketball backboard while indoor flying this week. It dropped 15′ to the hardRead More
First 5″ Drone – Radix FC
My first 5″ quad – flew it today. Been flying 3″ and smaller. This is a honey. BrainFPV supplied the BrainFPV Radix F4 FC, the Hobbywing 45A 4in1 ESC, the Hobbywing Xrotor 2306/2400 motors, the 5×3 Gemfan props, the TBS nano CRSF, the TBS vTx. I provided my own cam, frame and batt. I let BrainFPV source the gear cuz I’d not done 5″ before. And I’m really glad I did that. This thing flew for 8.5 min before myRead More
Sailplane Settling In
Summer Pond in Neon Blue
Set your resolution to either 1080p or 720p. Else it’s not worth watching … Best bits from some pond videos. Shot in the summertime. In our backyard. On some simply gorgeous days. Nature is simply too stunning to ignore. Vids made with two craft: 1) a Phantom 3 Professional 2) and a custom built drone sporting a Hero 3 Black camera. All done in 1080p 60fps.
Loki-X3 Frame – Dodo FC
A new frame – the 130mm Loki-X3, from helipad.com. I put the gear from my HB-122 into it. I find this frame better than the RMRC HellBender 122 because it doesn’t have loose motor mounting holes, it protects the camera and it has more prop clearance (sometimes the rear props touched on the HB frame). It just about fits in the palm of my hand. Configuration Storm 130 Loki-X3 frame RMRC 3s35c1100 battery pack (83 g) RMRC BLheli 4 in 1Read More
