  • Bad Raven: I think a lot of us will have seen the published (leaked) training instructions to police officers on FPV, which was both incomplete and incorrect. Only the Little Hitler types will be comfortable treading any of that path!

  • Reman: Thought for the day - If a knowledgeable police officer stopped you and saw that you had a "600mW" VTX on your quad he'll get funny about it, But would even a VERY knowledgeable officer know what they were looking at if the same VTX had a professional looking label under the heat shrink that proclaimed that the VTX was in fact a 25mW unit?  :hmm:

Finally decided to upgrade my old FPV screen, So out with the budget 7" single VRX unit, And in with an equally budget orientated 7" screen, but now with diversity and DVR built in !

Woo hoo, What a rock and roll lifestyle I lead.  :laugh:

Start a thread on it and inform of your findings please!

I have a Black Pearl diversity screen (bought ages ago and def not budget) and frankly its rubbish, the menu system being particularly awkward and non user friendly. (no DVR or channel seek either, things I'd now consider essential)

I learnt long ago that if you're buying electronics with a "User interface", The cheaper the device, the less user friendly it's going to be.

I've had several cheap chinese touch screen car stereos, and most of them looked like the software for each feature (DVD, CD, Radio, And config menus) was cobbled together with code wrote for several other units, And by different programers. There was never a common style or method to use any of the layouts like you'd get with a name brand head unit.
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.

Skyzone Sky03 goggles

So want some of these. I had my HD3's, been so tempted to order all week as they went back down to £307 on Banggood.

Added the shims to the faceplate and that gave no light leaks, the image quality is far superior to my old fatshark attitude v2 and Sky01.

I picked them up from bg at that price and chose priority direct mail and got them in 6 days

I think I've kept the postman in a job just lately! I'm building a reptile 500 from scratch and every single component is coming through the post (admittedly, about a third has come by courier).

I can't vouch for today, I haven't been home but apparently yesterday my batteries arrived from bg (according to the tracking) but I'm told the parcel claims to be a charger (which is yet to arrive too) so I'm none the wiser.

With a bit of luck, the charger, motors propellers, propeller adapters, 2 meters of each (red and black) 14 awg wire and some strips of leds will all show up this week so I can finish assembling it and start worrying about how to set everything up.....

Well, because it was raining and I was bored I've ordered some red ones. Go with my SWANK X-Lite.

Are you in UK and did you get the batteries please? I cannot get ANY batteries sent to me in UK by Banggood, the last two (micro quad packs) were intercepted and returned, and now I have "We cannot send to your destination" on all battery pages.

Yeah, uk. I guess that's why they were marked as a charger.

HOWEVER, I've since seen some nearly the same on ebay for less and uk seller apparently so I'm not sure I'd worry about buying abroas to be honest.

4 stroke engines............................. spit...................  :sick: Why throw away half the power strokes?   :nananana:   :laugh: :laugh:

What the postman (not the normal guy) got caught doing today was leaving a packet on the doorstop and walking off, no card through door, no knock or ring. His ears likely are still ringing.   :slap:

Firstly I love the sound,    second  an oil spewing two stroke screamer  don't look good on a Tiger Moth, and lastly my finger slipped when i was just looking. :whistling:

With regard to the postman  :o :o should be ashamed of himself, even my rats are house trained.
