Squishy, destroyer of worlds

After about a year or so of mix matched parts and 1 blown up esc, I finally have squishy in his final form, although it is very different than before.
It went from being a modded martian 220 III to a QAV R and now to a poorly-cut-but-still-somewhat-accurate Alien 5 knockoff. You may ask "why the fuck would you spend an extra 20 dollars to get the same martian frame?". Surprisingly, this Chinese amazon dealer made the frame based off the actual alien and not the Martian. sure the quality of the carbon is jack shit, has a poorly recreated top plate, and needs to be washed/ filed down in some spots but still, 50 dollar Alien.

The difference between the martian and the alien is that the alien is generally more slim and light, while the martian is generally wider and chunkier to avoid a lawsuit as it isn't directly accurate to the Alien blueprints. This same idea tended to be very popular with fidget spinners as companies could easily slightly modify the fidget spinner design and name and could get away with it as the original design is copyrighted.

Hi mate, are these blue props racekraft ones? I tried similar ones on my rs2205s but my motors didnt handle it well at high throttle. lm not sure if it was overproped or if it was an esc or battery issue tough.

yep, those were the RK 5051's. decided to switch em out as the v1s props are much better for my style of flying. Still haven't gotten it off the ground as all my computers seem to be cursed, but they work like a charm with the motors in liftoff

I program all mine on a 5 year old Linux laptop. What issues are you having with programming?

thanks! switched over to a QAV-R 5" clone because I'm more of a freestyle geek

This is the 3rd revision in the "Wizard Killer" series of builds based on the Martian II frame. The original Wizard Killer was my response to the successful Eachine Wizard RTF quad. The Mark III supersedes the more budget oriented Wizard Killer Mark II and is the most featured packed, simple to build and powerful of the three. The base weight with props is about 326g and fully loaded with a battery..

At last, the Topsky F7X V2 is available. This is the updated V2 release which came 3 months after the failed V1 model from October, 2017. V1 had several issues and most reviewers declared it an utter failure. Did Topsky fix the issues and are these worth buying? Let's find out. On paper this sounded like a wonderful new goggle. Unfortunately we were let down. The displays exhibited ghosting, the..
