    Educated Guess on Quality of batteries?

    I have a 3s 2200mah 30a discharge lipo and a 2s 1750mah 25a lipo for my quad and 2 planes. These are the only two batteries I've ever had, as I'm not that deeply involved in the RC hobby. I haven't used them in a year because I don't have a liscence yet and biking to the nearest field with an FT...

    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...

    Greetings and a quick question re: balance of FT Flyer, plus bonus question.

    The FT Flyer is not my first plane, but it is my first FT foam board build. Previous scratch builds were wire-cut foam ribbed planes that flew very well in the hands of a decent pilot. That is something I am not, so I switched over to the FT Flyer for getting better, before I put my current...

    Can I use a fpv camera switcher on the 350qx3?

    I have a 350qx3 with a gopro gimbal hooked up to control from my dx8. The quad has two servo connectors in it and one is occupied with the gimbal. So my question is could I control another device like a servo along with the gimbal at the same time? Thx.
