    Launching Model rockets from f450 drone!

    You must realize this is against federal law in the U.S. right?

    OUCH crash photos

    If you orders the tyro 79 you get a box of parts you have to assemble. You'll have to solder the motor wires onto the escs, not too difficult. After mine crashed I rebuilt it onto a 3" Martian frame. It is a very solid performing kwad, fast and handles more like a 5". Excellent value for the money.

    New wizard 220x wont lift of the ground, i leaned the quad on all 4 sides testing the motors and the back right motor glitches and cuts out

    I bought a wizard 3 years ago and right out of the box one of the motors was bad. Soldered in a new motor and all was good. It's probably just a bad solder joint like holtneil said. Is it the original o.g. wizard with single escs? Or one of the newer ones with 4in1 escs?

    Flying pipe idea

    If you want to learn I say start small. You could build a cheap hobby grade quadcopter kit like the tyro 129 to learn how the motors, fcb and escs are programmed to work together. Add in a flysky transmitter and for about $200 you're getting real world experience. Flash the inav firmware and...

    Flying pipe idea

    It's definitely possible. I don't know where you could get the parts, flight control board or specs but this design used by Walgreens to fly in meds to hurricane ravaged Florida is intriguing:

    Flying pipe idea

    Figure out how much a 20'x2 1/2" diameter pipe filled with liquid will weigh. That's a good start. So let's say it's 200 pounds. That's getting into full size helicopter territory. The problem with flying liquids is weight.

    Looking for prebuilt longer range quad

    Depending on the range you'll have to get licensed by the feds.

    Flying pipe idea

    Yeah it's also possible to land a man on the moon but we don't do it because it's inefficient. Flying around with liquids is problematic.

    Is my drone hobby going to be a short lived one ?

    So the million dollar question about these trackers that report telemetry info and location. What do they look like, how much do they cost, weigh etc. Does this technology even exist for 5 inch home built kwads? Are these rules just being made up by a bunch of government appointed hacks who...

    Cheapest kwad build yet

    On a side note, the stickers that came with the escs make it look like they took a prop strike lol:

    Cheapest kwad build yet

    Well I spent Christmas eve putting this thing together. It's a rather odd frame design with the two shorter stand offs in the back actually screw into the stack screws lol. The integrated pdb is weird to me too. It's funny soldering wires directly to the frame. The fc and the escs work well...

    How Did DJI’s Digital FPV System Change the FPV Game?

    I think it's cool what dji is doing however it's not for people who like to tinker, customize/repair and upgrade their kwads.
