Build log Alien 5″

Hi Pilots!

Here is my Build log of my current FPV Acro/Racing boat. Generally, I am very happy and impressed by the Alien Frame, coming from a ZMR250 v2 from FPVModel. I love my ZMR250 Frame, its very sturdy and was a good frame for my first flights I did in FPV. As a first step into FPV Racing, I still recommend a ZMR250 v2 frame as its very cheap and hard to break ( I actually wasn’t able to break it at all ).

Part List:

  • Lumenier LUX Flightcontroller
  • xNova 2204-2300KV Motors
  • Flyduino KISS 24A Race ESCs
  • HS1177 FPV Camera
  • TBS Core PNP50
  • ImpulseRC Alien 5″ Frame
  • HoTT GR-16 Reciever
  • Lumenier TX5G25 VTX
  • Some build materials

Let’s get started!

FPV Acrobatics and Racing!

Hey People!

Sorry for not posting for a long time! I had a very busy time, new job, new year, new hobby!

I started to get interested in flying a quad copter for some time now, and about 6 Months ago, I started to build my very first Acro/Race frame. It was the ZMR250v2 from FPVModel.com with Cobra 2204/2330kv motors and DYS 20A BLheli ESCs. I used a a SPF3Racing Flight controller, which I like though I soon had issues with the USB port not working properly.

Now, some month later, I bit the bullet and bought parts for my new frame, a frame to get serious: The ImpulseRC Alien 5″!
Soon, I will post a build log about how I built it and with pictures =) My first impression is that it is a very, very clean Frame and the parts bought for it are excellent! I hope to join the Swiss National Championship with this frame, even if I probably won’t win because there are far better pilots out there than I am.

What is Quad racing/acrobatics or FPV?

For those that don’t know what that hobby is, let my try to explain it here:

Arrival Japan – Adventure Start!

Hi Guys!

So, the time has come and I have arrived in Japan. I took the Narita Express to my place to stay and thus the adventure starts! I am very tired as I haven’t slept so far but enough hyped up to write about japan.

First steps in a very different world

After a quick nap and shower – which was definitely required due the about 16 hour flight via Istambul – Continue reading

Mikrotik Fast Track that excludes IPSec

Hi Network Engineers!

So, Fast Track is a new feature introduced in RouterOS 6.29. Its quite nice! With that, you can forward packages in a way that they are not handled by the Linux Kernel which greatly improves the throughput of your router.

You can activate Fast Track with that:

Next in Japan!

Hi Guys!

Let me tell you a little story about Japan.

So, soon (in about a Month) I start my third journey to Japan, more precisely to Tokyo! I will Blog about Japan and the Journey and now, I will tell you some outlooks to what you can expect to see. Or read.
So far I have only been in and around Tokyo, though the plan for the next trip would be visit some other prefectures. And of course, Tokyo Game Show!

What do I think of Japan so far? I have only been there for 4 Weeks, and that split into two vacations of each 2 weeks.

My experience so far…

Changing signature algorithm for CSR generation on Plesk

Hi Webhosters!

If you are running a Plesk, commercially, for fun or whatever other reason, this information might be for you.

When you want to order a certificate from a CA, there are now several CA’s that stop taking orders from CSRs that are using SHA1 as signature algorithm. Google also wants to accelerate the end of SHA1 by stopping marking a connection as secure if a certificate is used that is signed with SHA1. You can read more about that here.

Sadly, Plesk generates the CSR with SHA1 by default.

Legendary VR

Hi VR enthusiasts!

So, it is well known that more and more film studios are looking into VR business, while for example Oculus VR already has its very own studio called Storystudio. Legendary Pictures just announced on ComicCon 2015 a partnership with Google and created Legendary VR, a studio focusing on Virtual Reality experiences!

They did not only announce it, they also released their very own Google Cardboard simply called “Legendary VR”. They plan to distribute over 50’000 Google Cardboards during the duration of ComicCon:

RouterOS on a PCengines APU

Hi Guys!

This is a guide on how to get RouterOS from Mikrotik that is able to deliver Gigabit throughput, without having to buy expensive hardware! As I had a little struggle setting this up, I wanted to share this information and workarounds with people so it might get easier for you.

(Disclaimer: I am used and like Mikrotik with its RouterOS. Next to that it is a European Company. <- NSA Paranoid me speaking)

Introduction

I finally got around to get a fancy new ISP at home that delivers a gigabit synchronous (1 Gbit/s Up-/Download)! For those living in Switzerland, the ISP is Init7 with its product called Fiber7.

While it is still expensive to rent static IPv4 addresses for your home (and will probably get more and more expensive over time), you get a free static /48 IPv6 network yay!
