MSRL Big Race Day Event 2015


I didn’t race at this event, but I was there.  It was very cool and very professional.  I can’t wait to race quadcopters one day.

Turnigy SK450 RTF Quadcopter setup and review

So I just got a new quadcopter, I’ve never flown one before, and it took awhile to get everything figured out, the manual is a tad bit confusing, but generally ok with a bit of online help as well. Next video I’ll give this thing a go and see how it handles for a noob like myself. I have only flown airplanes, and about 5 flights on a 400 size helicopter.

Top Flite P-40 Warhawk Giant Scale With Belly Landing

Hi Everyone
Welcome to Cal’s Top Flite P-40 Warhawk, Giant Scale Maiden Flight. This is the airplane that I build for Cal and it was featured in the preview video, Top Flite P-40 vs Aeroworks P-51 Mustang. In this video you see me and Kirk assisting Cal with his airplane. It was a very windy day and the winds were 45 degrees from runway center. As you can see, during Cals first landing attempt one of the Main Gear struck a dirt pile as cal was at the edge of the grass. This caused one of the Landing Gear to rotate from center, so a gear up landing was decided. Thanks for viewing and Happy flying from TMRC.

Boston Dynamics Cheetah Robot runs 28.3 mph

Cheetah Robot is a fast-running quadruped developed by Boston Dynamics with funding from DARPA. It just blazed past its previous speed record, getting up to 28.3 mph, about 0.5 mph faster than Usain Bolt’s fastest 20 meter split. This version of the Cheetah Robot runs on a treadmill with offboard power. Testing on an untethered outdoor version starts early next year. For more information about Cheetah or the other robots we develop, visit www.BostonDynamics.com.

The Hobbyking SK450 is a brilliantly designed 450mm quad frame built from top quality materials. The main frame is high quality glass fiber while the arms are constructed from ultra durable polyamide nylon.

This quad not only looks great, its very well thought out as well. Assembly is a breeze with pre-threaded brass sleeves for all of the frame bolts, so no lock-nuts are required. It utilizes one size of bolt for the entire build, making the hardware very easy to keep in order and only requiring one size of hex wrench to assemble.

The SK450 also has an orientation feature which is quite clever. It includes a yellow foam ball which you install on a carbon rod that mounts between the frame arms. This not only acts as a bumper to prevent running into obstacles, it also makes for a great orientation aid to keep track of the front of the quad while flying.

We offer a full line of multi-rotor electronics such as multi-rotor control board, ESC & motors. It has never been easier or more affordable to get a quad in the air!

Features:
Built from top quality glass fiber and polyamide nylon.
Pre-threaded brass sleeves for all of the frame bolts.
Yellow orientation ball to keep you flying in the right direction.
Easy assembly.

Width: 450mm
Height: 80mm

Hobbyking T-50 Jet First Flight!

Earthling1984 took the HobbyKing T-50 out for a flight.

Joehandsome99 joined me in Illinois at my local flying field and today I took the maiden flight with my T-50 from HobbyKing. I did modify this jet by adding an e-flite EDF & Motor(same as original Habu came with) and an upgraded ESC(capable of 5cells). Today the maiden flight was on 4cells and I hope to get another video soon on 5cells(there isn’t much space in the canopy so I am going to have to get a smaller sized 5cell and have a shorter flight(probably around a 2000mah 5cell). It was a blast flying with Eric and Chris today! And Lorenzo joined us as well behind the camera!
