  • Reman: Got stuck in traffic yesterday. After an hour I started using my phone (And an OTG cable) to look through the media files on a keyring of my old USB sticks. Found one that had the entire run of "Firefly" on it. I got through 3 episodes before the traffic started moving again....... God, That really was an amazing show.

  • mo_miah: Gav- if its a camera ship then TBS crossfire is definitely what you need, the FrSky has limited channels and telemetry options, TBS crossfire has much better features and more channels to control camera gimbals etc

  • hoverfly: I coated a couple of Slipstreams  a few years ago  It stiffened up the wing nicely .On the down side although it prevented dings when i had an high speed"arrival" it left the resin cracked. and the glass lifted slightly.  Well stuck laminate stiffens the wing and is flexible..

  • DarkButterfly: I'm doing laminate, just put my order in for some, also got some balsa wood for the side parts, had to use a kitchen knife to seperate the foam from the busted wood

  • atomiclama: @DB well you obviously need a bigger motor and ESC, as flying slower is just not possible.  ::)

  • hoverfly: If you put a couple of coats of Eze Kote on the wing before the laminate it sticks really well ..no lifting.. :smiley:

  • DarkButterfly: If it makes you feel better, I’m going to completely refurbish my falcon Evo with new balsa sides and new laminate ~~

Struggling to resist the temptation
« on: July 08, 2018, 19:38:38 »
I loved building my Rooster and I'm feeling the temptation especially with the summer hols coming up.

I'm tilting towards trying out a kiss build, but not 100% sure as my Rooster is a joy to fly and I feel I either need to sell a few of my quads or fly more:D

So far,
Kiss V2 FC
Kiss 32amp Escs - worth it? or spedix 32bit 30amp
Impulse Reverb Frame
F40 Pro 2 2400 kv motors / or 2500?
TBS unify pro
Might stick a swift 2 in, what's the best option now?

The kissed alien is a well established setup, I think it would go with kiss ESCs if I was going down that route.

Cam wise imho, best of current crop is the foxeer predetor on runcam sparrow but not sure how well they fit in a reverb frame

F40 pro 2 really can’t fault, 2400kv would be where I go, 2500 are really for that extra bit on racing but they are not quite at high kv level

I agree with Cheredanine, keep with the KISS ESC's if you are going down that route.

Not sure if the Mr Steele PDB fits on the Reverb...if it does, then that would be a good addition to get OSD enabled on the setup, not to mention making the build easier and cleaner as well.

Reverb has its own pdb, you get it with the frame from droneislife but have to buy it separately from other suppliers I have seen, although price reflects this

That is correct yes, but it's merely a point to point PDB with a JST GH connector for the ESC signal connection. The main thing is to try and get OSD for a KISS setup (and connector types) without having to look at 3de party suppliers like Matek, and the only option currentluy out there is unfortunatly the Mr. Steele PDB.

I didn’t say it was a good pdb

Thanks guys,
Alien £160 with PDB, ahhh!


I have a Martian 2 cheap build that I might take apart, could use that frame.

Seen a few get the PDB to fit the Reverb, so that's an option.
Going to be a pricey build I think.

CAM/ VTX I'm sure I have a Unify / Swift 2 lying about & also have the Cam from the Diatone gt200s spare.


At the same time I was looking into upgrading my tiny whoop, old ones a bit battered and does not like descending one bit.
Would love one cable of some acro.
