  • JeremyE: The surface is constantly changing and you have way less time to react.
    June 27, 2017, 10:55:22
  • JeremyE: F1 requires way more skill!
    June 27, 2017, 10:54:31
  • ched999uk: Rally is great to watch and they display amazing control and skill. The problem for me is only seeing very limited clips of cars and it's a tie trial only. OK so the surface changes and they don't get to try the track before it matters. I like to see F1 drivers overtaking, OK so before anyone says what overtake in F1, it is getting better :)
    June 27, 2017, 10:35:24
  • shawdreamer: dont mean to take anything away from F1 drivers but when they race they rely on the road surface being dependably and consistently the same everytime..... a rally driver has to has to adjust his technique on every single turn and bend and take account that everytime another vehicle go's through that turn and bend ahead of his it changes the nature of the surface, F1 drivers are skilled, Rally drivers are skilled and brave..... and more than a little nuts

  • Hozza: BTCC is a good one to watch also, after all rubbing is racing

  • ched999uk: true
    June 26, 2017, 10:31:03
  • shawdreamer: "once ina while" is all very good with F1 but you watch a rally and everytime its a spectacle.
    June 26, 2017, 09:10:35
  • ched999uk: I assume you missed the F1 today. It was ore like rally cross!!!
    June 25, 2017, 23:45:50
  • shawdreamer: thats why Rally motorsport is the only motorsport ill even entertain anymore, those guys display almost inhuman skill levels everytime the go out, compared to driving round and round a flat tarmaced race track in a F1 is just a piece of pi55

interesting whats the carbon rods in the legs for, wiring and to add a little strength? hopefully help stop them from flopping about.

wonder if it helps with twisting too.

Nice. There is something about a well presented product that oozes quality when you see it. 

@nub - The CF rod insert in the rotor arms is supposed to improve rigidity and strength.

@mm - Mine came by DHL, ordered Saturday, attempted delivery yesterday (Tuesday), rebooked for delivery tomorrow (Thursday)

I ordered two of these frames - DHL have not said anything about customs duty!  Weird inconsistencies ..

I am transferring all my electronics from the 450 Firefly (DJI clone) so the motors will be SunnySky 2212 980KV that I simply adore. They are superb!

After the Gimbal and GoPro I may have to up the LiPo to 4S though.  Thus far I have only used 3S for all my quads (even with GoPro).  The Tarot T-2D gimbal may just tip the weight over the edge for 3S I feel - although as a camera ship I don't need big performance, its more about stability and flight duration.

And I now have my delivery from EMax via DHL. Curiously they had the correct shipping address on a slip inside the packing. But the parcel was addressed to my billing address.

Yeah prob will put the ESC's on it earlier  (HK Blue 30A flashed with SimonK)  and will put the Emax 2213 935 KV motors on it tomorrow and take some more pics.

Haven't decided between a Naze Full with GPS or a KK2.1HC FC (Leaning towards the Naze to be honest). Got the bits on the way for a Mobius Gimbal (3D Printed) got the BGC Controller ready along with the Mobius and got a Boscam VTX/VRX on the way from HK and one of there cheap Google kits.

I also have a couple of MinimOSD boards as well but haven't a Clue yet on how to use them But will do some reading on it and get that sorted a little bit down the road.
