Squishy, destroyer of worlds

THE BOYE IS HERE

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

Available for $361 with coupon toyho at Banggood The Aomway Commander V2s are the 2018 followup to the successful Aomway Commander V1 FPV headset. Unlike their predecessor, which targeted the FatShark Dominator V3s, the Commander V2s have set their sights higher toward the FatShark HD3s. Instead of 16:9 displays with a 32 degree field of view (FOV) the V2s now sport 4:3 displays with an impressive..

The FB 009 is a lightweight and compact budget FPV headset. When I first saw this I thought it might be worth a try. I'm never quite sure which headset to recommend at this price point, so let's see how this stands up. Most notably it includes a USB chargeable 1S 1200mah battery which is a decent capacity for an internal battery. The headset is compact and features a 3" 480x320 16:9 display. The..
