DM002 DIY drone review
DM002 - Cheap DIY quadcopter with FPV camera Recently, I received the DM002 quadcopter for tests, a Chinese RC toy quite entertaining with an attractive price.

FPV Airport Backpack for racing fanatics

FPV Airport backpack review
FPV Airport Helipak backpack by Think Thank Photo In my opinion, the most important goal of the FPV backpack manufactures is to design a product that fits any racing quadcopter. Nevertheless, if you want to fit inside more than one drone, the challenge is even bigger. At first impression the FPV Airport Helipak by ThinkThank is not just very customizable but also comfortable. Thanks to the wide range of products, Think Thank Photo (TTP) became over the...

Tablet harness for drone professionals by ReadyAction At the time I started my journey in the word of quadcopters I didn't have thought about the utility of such a device like this tablet harness.

X73S super mini brushless FPV racer

X37S ultra compact FPV quadcopter
Jumper X73S aka Eachine X73S Probably, this X73S is currently the smallest brushless FPV quadcopter. Actually it is smaller then most of the similar brushed models. Anyway, even if is so small I recommend it only for outdoor flights. Brushless motors are much powerful than brushed ones. Like many racing drones, this X73S is also based on the versatile Naze 32 flight controller. This...

The advantage of this model over dirty cheap toy drones is the versatile and programmable flight controller. After I reviewed many RTF packages, I liked...
