RCSparks Studio - Radio Control in Motion Lynh Phan's Flytrex Live 3G Hands On Review - Dronethusiast Editor’s note: I have been using the Flytrex Live 3G unit for quite some time now and it is my favorite tracker for my quads. I have done my own review of the Flytrex Live 3G on my old DJI Phantom 2 back last spring. Lynh is my favorite DJI “guru”, I really admire his unselfish and helpful attitude towards the entire DJI pilot community. So it was a great pleasure to make this “marriage” happen and set these two favorites up so they get to know each other. Here are some more useful posts from the our site if you are interested in the Flytrex Live 3G tracker: I was really curious to hear Lynh’s opinion and experience with my favorite tracker and drone social tool.

FPV Miniquad Revolution Miniquads are great for an endless number of reason; portability, agility, and speed to name a few. You see their popularity grow more and more as they rise in accessability and lower in price. They come in all kinds of shapes and sizes and to some, seem a lot less intimidating than their big siblings. We've touched on the subject of racing before when we visited the Airgonay Racing Club in Argonay, France.

We can't wait for the day people crowd areas to watch a jumbotron transmitting FPV for an X-Games style fly-off, or a high speed race through the woods.

My First Quadrotor: Parts Selection and Build Note: All this happened in mid-January. I've just been too busy to finish this and post until now... Yupp. I built it! Here's how it happened... Being a practical man, I want to build a quadrotor for a few concrete reasons: I want to write the flight controller from pretty much scratch, as an exercise in my control system knowledge. Parts Selection: I began the process by asking the experienced quadrotor-ers around MITERS and the IDC about where to start. Looking at the F330 frame's listing on the HobbyKing website gave me the proper specifications I needed for the various components. Building the Quadrotor: About a week after placing the order, I received the XBee starter kit from Makershed and the four SK3 2826 motors from the HobbyKing USA Warehouse in the mail. After waiting a few more weeks, a package from China came! And check out all the new toys! Somewhere in the pile of new toys was the Power Distribution Board that Banks highly recommended I purchase.
