    Flying the Everglades

    Well, not really, but had I thrown some toy alligators around the yard, it would have been. This 3" started out as a 2" BabyhawkR and now the only thing left of it is the motors. Now I can say that I have successfully flown over water.

    Doing the Mamba

    After three months and 10 days of hard abuse, the ESC board on my BabyhawkR brain gave out. Not a bad run considering it was my first brushed and I put it through the ringer. I ordered the Diatone Mamba Power Tower and poured into getting it ready to go. I was only planning to tin the pads and...

    Murphy Strikes Back

    My first build. Got everything wired up, plugged in a smoke stopper and then the battery… All powered up, nothing went poof. Plugged in straight to the battery, rear motors smoked. Unplugged, found the bolts I used were too long and arced the coils, switched them out and plugged in again…

    Feeling accomplished.

    So a few weeks ago I managed to break my Firefly in the most unusual of ways. I hit something that drove the micro USB plug off the board so I lost the ability to charge the battery or access the videos from the sd card without removing it. I went to Banggood and was planning to pick up a new...

    I tried my first inverted yaw, got disoriented, tried to flip upright and didn’t quite make it. Heard it hit and cringed knowing something had to have broke. Then I saw this. I crashed in the soggiest part of our yard and also into one of the many mole tunnels throughout the yard...

    Brain Transplant and the Spirit of MacGyver

    Got my iFlight iX2 Lite V3 2.5 inch frame in the mail yesterday and I performed a brain transplant from my BabyhawkR. The biggest issue I had is that the stack just fits, so no room to put the battery strap through the frame, so I had to call on the spirit of MacGyver to find a solution.
