    HK X550 & HK Spec FPV250 FOR SALE

    I have two quadcopters for sale. Both are practically new. Selling because I have another 250 that I fly a lot more often than these. The HobbyKing Spec FPV250 is RTF and a fairly clean frame. It flys ok, but I prefer the Naze32 board over kk, so I would recommend picking one up with it. The...

    Easter bunny? Nope! Easter Drone leaving eggs to hide!

    A small skit I did with my little sister. The easter bunny?! Turns out NOPE! It's really drones that deliver and hide our easter eggs and presents! This explains everything. A little girl wakes up early to see if she can see the easter bunny hiding eggs, she gets a huge surprise when she sees...

    Made In USA Aluminum Quadcopter Frames

    The video above is a comparison between our aluminum frame and a G10 counter part. It tests things like strength, weight, and overall durability. The idea came about after we got tired of buying knockoff G10 frames online, each time we crashed hard we pretty much needed a new frame. So I had an...

    The Props Aren't Always The Only Sharp Things That Spin

    Check out this video from Tested. Jamie Hyneman attaches a circular saw to his quadcopter to do some landscaping...or is he preparing for the zombie apocalypse? It's one use for a multirotor that is unique because it does not involve a camera or cargo transport.

    Getting in some stick time with the mini quads...

    This isn't article material but I had such a great time exercising the fingers the other day I wanted to share a couple of the videos. The two frames I was flying were the R220 & PM300 mini quads. Both are frames I CNC cut myself as those who follow my articles on the main site will be aware...

    Quadcopter or Tricopter

    I have been flying quadcopters for quite some time but mainly have been rtf. I really want to make a multirotor for fpv racing. I'm stuck on the fence between trying to make a 250 class quad or a tricopter as I like the yaw characteristics of a tri and they are relatively cheaper to make. Any...

    Good 400 to 500 size quadcopters?

    I am looking into buying a 400 or 500 size quadcopter to be used for some sport flying, as well as some aerial photography. So far I have looked at the Xugong Pro, QAV400, as well as the Cinetank Mk2. Is there any other good frames in this size bracket (400 to 500)? I would like to have the...

    Good Aerial Photography Quadcopter

    I plan on doing some aerial photography during the summer, but my only multirotor at the moment is a FPV250L. I want to upgrade to something a little bigger and more reliable. I want to be able to carry a gimbal and gopro as well as my fpv gear (I already have a gopro and fpv gear, but i need to...

    FPV Snowmobile Chase

    I had the chance a couple weeks ago to chase a snowmobile out on the frozen lake using my FPV250L. It was a great evening to get some footage with a beautiful sunset. Check out the video below!

    Give yourself space when launching...

    Leave your self plenty of space to get stable. Don't launch when the space is going to be extra crowded by your subject matter, and if you have to, just wait for the next run. In other words don't be this guy... Thankfully no one was hurt and it looks like the semi thought it was a bug.

    Quad Flips on takeoff

    Hey guys I just built my first quad and am having some issues. When I give the quad enough throttle to take off, it just flips to the front or side. I have the FC mounted in the right direction and have tried the full throttle punch to do a quick take off and it still flips. I have tried with...

    Landing gear suspension with dampening - maybe.

    Hey all. After seeing some great examples of board isolation on multicopters thought some of these ideas might also apply to landing gear. So, the idea I've borrowed is to use earplugs as suspension and I hope the attached image explains this. BTW, not sure about outer/inner diameters of CF...
