New: Emax BabyHawk 85mm Micro Brushless FPV Quad
At a $100 average retail price, the 85mm Emax Babyhawk is the first affordable micro brushless FPV quadcopter. It comes as plug-and-play, which requires a flight battery and, thanks to its F3 Femto Flight Controller, a receiver from a variety of capable protocols.
New: HolyBro Shuriken 180 Pro FPV Racer
Almost ready to fly FPV quadcopter available in DSMX, FrSky, FlySky and Futaba protocols. Requires no building whatsoever to get you in the air fast. The only additional items needed are a battery and of course a charger, transmitter and FPV goggles.
New: Inductrix Converted for FPV, Light Version
Stock Blade Inductrix converted for FPV flying using a lightweight 25mW AIO FPV camera with dipole antenna, upgraded 14,000Kv motors, 2-bladed props, and 220mAh 1S 50C LiPo batteries. Includes explanation of items that impact flight time, including the primary reason: stock battery connectors.
New: Inductrix FPV Conversion
I converted a stock Blade Inductrix for FPV flying by installing an all-in-one (AIO) FPV camera and upgrading the motors and battery connector. I also used 2-bladed props for slightly better flight times.
New: Inductrix Upgrades & Accessories
Many upgrades and accessories designed for the Blade Inductrix and other micro quads: carbon fiber frame braces, many different 2- to 4-blade props, upgraded motors, 1S LiPo batteries, 1S voltage checkers, 1S battery chargers, add-on FPV gear, and more.
New: Multiplex ParkMaster Pro
I built the latest ParkMaster offering from Multiplex, the ParkMaster Pro 3D foamy airplane. The goal was semi-lightweight with high end components, such as good high C-rated LiPos, Castle Creations’ Talon 35A ESC, and a Leopard 315W 71g motor swinging an APC 11×4.7 Slow Fly prop. Includes landing gear mod to make the carbon-fiber replaceable if needed.
New: Hacker HotWing 500 Flying Wing
Hacker HotWing 500, EPP flying wing, 19.6in or 500mm wingspan. Current power setup includes an Eflite BL180 2500Kv motor, T-Motor 6A ESC, GWS 5030 EP propeller, and Gforce 2S 500mAh 30C batteries.
New: Hacker HotWing 750 Flying Wing
It seems there are fewer and fewer companies producing flying wings. I have always enjoyed flying my 30in EPP Flying Wing and wanted to get another so I could have one with lights. When Tower Hobbies got the Hacker HotWing 750mm in stock, I decided to get it and put LEDs on my other wing. After a light build and maiden flight, I’m really happy with the Hacker 750mm flying wing!
Coming Soon: Multiplex Shark Converted for FPV
I will be modifying the Multiplex Shark for FPV flying. Being tough and lightweight with its Elapor foam and having a rear-facing pusher prop should make this powered glider style fixed-wing aircraft a good platform for FPV sky surfing. Stay tuned…
New: Thunder Power Adrenaline Fat Shark Goggle LiPo Battery
As you may already know, the original Fat Shark goggle battery has a built-in cell balancing circuit and can’t be charged at more than 1C. Thunder Power has a 2000mAh 2S 7.4V LiPo battery specifically for Fat Shark goggles. It has the same power plug, a working balance tap, and an XT60 connector for charging up to 4C.
New: CustomFPX Prescription Lenses for FPV Goggles
Instead of getting standard diopters for my Fat Shark Attitude V3 FPV goggles, I wanted to try a set of prescription lens inserts because they would be more tailored for my particular vision. So I ordered a set from CustomFPX.
New: Thunder Power 220mAh 1S Adrenaline 50C LiPo Batteries
The Thunder Power 220mAh 1S 3.7V FPV Adrenaline 50C LiPo Battery is one incredible battery! With a hopped-up Blade Inductrix, flight times were a full minute longer than a leading competitor’s 220mAh 45C battery!
New: Thunder Power 4-Port 1S 3.7V LiPo Battery Charger
Probably most known for high-end RC batteries, Thunder Power also offers the TP103CQ 4-Port 1S 3.7V AC/DC LiPo Battery Charger for the world of ultra-micros.
New: ISDT Q6 Plus Smart Charger
After getting into micro quadcopters and wanting to charge 1S batteries back-to-back to support the addiction, I found myself looking for a small portable charger. Something lightweight, with usable features, that can be powered from a 3S or 4S LiPo battery.
