My first achievement in quad racing!

Hi Everyone!

So, this super exciting event took place. For the first time, I went to an organized race.

Thank you Coptermonkey.chand Backstreetpilots.ch for this amazing experience! Thank you Highflyer for taking me with you =)!

Everyone was super nice, people were happy and we had a lot of stuff to exchange. Many ideas came out of this event and I have experienced a whole new facet of this new sport.

I apologize in advance for the wall of text! =)

Graupner GR-16: Removal of the casing

Hey Racers!

Naturally, you want your racer as light as possible, as compact as possible and remove all “useless” weight. I use a Graupner radio which has SumD (Similar to sbus) and meets all my requirements. I like the higher build quality of a Graupner radio in comparison to the most common used in the Racing scene, the Frsky Taranis.

The Reciever for the Grauper radio I use is a GR-16. It’s one of the smaller ones, but I really wanted to make it use even less space. I searched online for help about removing the casing which was sadly fruitless so I decided to do an adventure on my own.

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!
