190 size FPV racer build & review from GEP


A 190 size FPV racer kit review from the GEP brand (so called ZX5 model). What's different about the previous FPV racers build I did before is a X frame while my former builds were always made with a classical H frame.

X frames have an advantage over H frames in that they are more symetrical (useful in FPV racing) and they twist…

NAFPV 2015 - Badges? We Don't Need No Stinkin' Badges.

Rightly or wrongly, the FPV community has long been seen as the misfits of the RC aircraft world; and while FPV is steadily going mainstream, at NAFPV 2015 there was still a palpable sense of "this is not your grandfather's RC event."

Obviously the flying requires the drone to be flown at a location with decent cellular coverage but we have been optimizing the platform to…
