A little bright blue plastic soldier with wrapped up parachute.


Oh, No, Sorry, that was the Drone Junkie free gift.........................    :slap:

Set of 8.5mm Dark Edition motors. (Upgrading my "Whoopee")
Set of E010 0615-14 motors

Three 750mAh 1S from Banggood

Two more LED drivers from Banggood for that "Christmas" effect lighting on a couple of foamies for our Indoor Special Event(s). A previously supplied one that has yet to find its way onto a plane or quad is cycling the LED strip over my head on a shelf edge as I write!

HobbyKing Walrus
Be sure to check the motor mount, on mine the screws were a bit short and only holding on by about 2 threads, I put longer ones in with a washer to avoid catching the windings.

Thanks Darrell I remember you saying that now, will check this one.

For the record I marked a screwdriver and counted the turns from the thread "click" to tight, 4.25 which equals about 2.13mm, the base of the motor is only about 2mm thick and checking it outside the model the thread is just proud of the inner face. This had screws with two washers on each (and threadlock), I';m happy that this build as delivered, would be fine (Nov 2016 delivery).

I think I';m finally almost up to date with my BangGood orders !!!! I had 3 orders turn up today with various non RC related stuff mainly in them, But the one thing that turned up that I';m really liking the look of is this......

http://www.banggood.com/Blade-Inductrix-Model-MQDFV-100A-100mm-Aggress-Mini-DF-DIY-Frame-Quadcopter-Support-8520-Motor-p-1106550.html

...... It seems to be pretty well made, So all the bit';s I';d earmarked for the 3d printed BG "Whoopy" frame build now have somewhere better to go. This frame feels pretty robust, But it all depends on what grade of alloy the ducts and motor supports are made from. It could be that the blanks are cast from the cheapest pot metal they could find and are going to bend or snap the first time I bounce the thing...... We';ll see. :)
I need a pay rise........ Though I'd settle for a reduction in the amount of hours I need to work to get the same money.

I got a tiny QX80 frame and some 8520 motors to put together, I';m going to use the TX-02 camera I plonked on my Hubsan X4 and borrow its FC until I can get the right F3 board to bind straight to my Flysky transmitter, maybe fix that in the new year, for now this setup should do the trick.

been flying them for a while mate, I know steel just posted a vid where he didn';t rate them but I really like, we are not all running lumenier 2206 motors, no issues with them on cobra champions and zmx v3s, fly really nicely
The steeper pitch seems to compensate for the fact the bulk of the lace is close to the hub, wouldn';t have said I have more power than with HQ 5x4x3 or more efficiency but less prop wash

A set of tbs triumph antennas and my lost GoPro session. I returned it under warranty as it had a software issue (possibly crash related, so possibly not warranty covered!). Anyway UPS managed to lose it and GoPro have sent me a new one!

Today, From HobbyKing I received a handful of tiny little Nano-Tech 200mAh Li-Po';s for my (Increasingly less standard) Eachine E010, And a couple of the 1000mAh Turnigy Bolt 3S packs (65/130C !!!!!) to use on the Realacc MM130-O frame I';ve had half built for about a month. The Nano-Tech 200';s seem marginally better than the Eachine 200';s I';d got before, With a slightly longer flight time and less propensity to voltage sag when pushed hard (Showing up as a big drop off in power while hammering it in FF flight, But it recovers again if I land for a few seconds...... I first thought the motors were overheating). I';m still not impressed with the little quads power, But I';m slowly making it better.

Also, I received another Eachine E010 that I';d won in BangGood';s "Thanksgiving" compition. That turning up surprised me because it';s still not even marked as dispatched on their site (?!?!). To be honest, I';ve already got mine (With a brushed F3 micro FC, DasMikro RX, Chaoli CL-615 motors, And a de-cased EF-01 AIO cam), Then there';s 2 more of them sitting behind the telly that the niece';s kids play with when they come over........ I';m at a bit of a loss who this ones going to go to. :)

What motors are in your E010? I';m using 14,000kv and they';re good and pokey. Also keep an eye on the Bolt lipos, there are many report of HV batteries puffing and performing poorly after only a dozen or two cycles.
