    DIY Foamboard CNC foam cutter

    Hey Guys, I've been wanting to build a CNC for a long while. I've tried one last year, just like the one in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zgbCy2tQg9Y but had a lot of problems with jagged movement. This week I decided to scavange all parts I had laying around and start a new...

    Cheap FPV

    Hey guys, I've been into the hobby for a while now and, recently, I've been wanting to fly FPV really badly but I'm not able to afford the cost. This is when I thought I could try to hook up a standard FPV camera to my phone and place the phone in a cheap, cardboard VR headset. The problem is, I...

    DTF (almost) foamboard in the UK

    After buying loads of foamboard from various companies in the UK, trying to find one that is as light as DTF and has a paper surface that peels like DTF, and is relatively cheap, I have to admit, I've failed. However, the last box I bought is the closest so far. It is lighter than most, the...

    Super simple and cheap gimbal system

    I was wondering why everyone needs gimbals with motors/servos and a electronic circuit. Why don't people just put a weight on the bottom of the camera to make sure it always points up and doesn't flip over? With good axles (or whatever the camera would turn on to keep it level) that don't have...

    First built quad log (Or V-tail?)

    I'm unsure if this will be a V-tail or a quad. I'm more interested in the authority that a Vtail has, with the advantage of the Tri without some of the negatives. (Such as: a motor goes out and the Tri crashes. Same is true for quad or V, but less likely to destroy all things.) I'm also...

    Does anyone have a recommended GPS Tracker?

    Hi! I'm rather new to the forum and I've been looking around since my last mishap with my quadcopter. The quad sustained damage to the receiver and continued to fly, flying away from me into the sunset. I never found it. :( Having learned from this experience, I am looking for a GPS tracker...
