    Hi, just want to share an issue I'm having, hope somebody knows how to solve it. I was just calibrating my ESCs throttle to get them in sync on a quad powered by a KK2, but instead of the two beeps at full throttle and then one beep at idle, after the usual ''1+4 button, power up, wait for...

    Shipping Cheers & Jeers

    Some of you might know I've been drooling over the Excalibur. Thursday, just after midnight (making it actually Friday), I ordered one along with a bunch of other things for me and a friend coming into the hobby. The order was split because the charger and 1 LiPo was not available in the US...

    Can you make the swappables with HK foam

    In australia you cant get the dollar tree foam board, so this is the best alternative. When watching the build videos it seems like the designs rely on the paper backing, which I do not believe the hobbyking foam has. Is it then possible to make the designs with it? Link...

    There are some pretty amazing people in the world. And doing the podcast has connected me with some many. One gentleman named Scott from Australia decided I needed a challenge. I needed to fly 3D. This stemmed from the fact back in the fall of 2015 we were having access issue to where I...

    Hobbyking Graphene

    I assume some of you fine folks have seen them on the hobbyking daily, instagram, facebook, vision-from-above. Anyway, I have been flying the 1500 4s multistar and although they are good, they are damn heavy on my already heavy MXP230 so I went ahead and ordered 3 of the 1300 4s Graphene...

    Durafly Tundra, My First Impressions

    Received my Tundra in the mail today about 1:00. It is now 7:30 as I start this and the plane is ready to maiden save the velcro to hold the battery.

    Durafly Tundra review please!

    I just listened to the FT Afterhours podcast re: the Tundra and the interview with Stewart and based on their praise I'm really excited about this new plane. I would love to see a Bixler/FT crew review of this seemingly excellent model!

    Testing HobbyKing Foam and glue...

    I received two boxes of HobbyKing foam board this past week. This morning I'd cleaned off my bench for a new 3D EPP kit build and I got to thinking about the new HK stuff and what glue it might use. This is in no way scientific. Or well planned, thought out, or possibly even effective. But it...

    Hi. I'm doing an after school program that will have middle schoolers build their own FT22's. The budget is tight. The HobbyKing HK6s should do the trick, if they work. Does anyone know if these are reliable or not? I have seen some videos on Youtube of people having them hooked up wrong...
