Volantex Xpilot AX601 6-Axis Stabiliser

https://youtu.be/Gu3_hcoru4A
30/10/20

The Volantex Xpilot AX601 is a 6 axis stabiliser for a fixed wing plane. It was not easy to set up and caused me a few problems to get working correctly. Most worrying is the motor fired up when I connected the battery even though my motor was disarmed!

Please watch the video to see the problems I had and how I solved them, I would suggest you watch to the end to see my summary conclusion and if I would buy it again.

Review: JHE42B Finder Self Powered Model Buzzer

https://youtu.be/PkDmkQhAfz0
23/10/20

The JHE42B is a self powered buzzer for you drone, it was very easy to attach to my Taycan’s flight controller with just 3 wires. If your battery becomes ejected from your drone in a crash the buzzer has it’s own battery so will keep on buzzing for an extended period. The battery charges for your drones battery. The buzzer is very loud and the finder has a bright LED which flashes which would assist you locating your model in low light situations. It weighs just under 8 g.

Review: BeeRotor BNF Micro Class Drone

https://youtu.be/-JtgbrUMemI
09/10/20

This drone does not have an OSD (On Screen Display) It will struggle outside but will be a nice sedate quadcopter for flying indoors. It is not very powerful so will not do acro but great for days when you cannot fly outside with your bigger drones. The camera looks ok but you can make your own mind up from the flight footage in my video.

The downside with the one I purchased was both batteries where dead they would not charge pass 1.17 v! So I need to cut off the connector supplied and solder one that matched my batteries. I am sure this would be very disappointing if you received your BeeRotor and then could not fly it.

Another problem was that only Angle Mode was set up on the flight controller and no Arm / Disarmed mode so there is a little work to do when you get it. I also adjusted the rates as I thought the pitch was too sensitive for a small indoor drone.

 Would I recommend it, the batteries are a problem for me but that could have been my bad luck. For the price it’s ok and will allow you to practice FPV on rainy days when you cannot get outside. Is it for a beginner? Yes I think so but you will need to know how to set it up in Betaflight.

Review: FPV 5.8G Receiver Monitor

https://youtu.be/Oo0FW39a2LY
02/10/20

I wanted to get a monitor I could use for FPV so when working on the bench I did not need to get my goggles out. This is what I found on Banggood and it does the job. It will be great for using when I am out flying and people ask what I am doing so I can now show them.

There is not much to it, a built in battery, a power switch and a channel button which I forgot to mention in the video also starts the auto scan mode by long pressing it.

In summary I think this is a good value for money, a good buy.

RadioMaster TX16S Run Through
https://youtu.be/1giXFVLIwd8
23/09/20

The RadioMaster TX16S arrived a few days ago and I have now started on the playlist to help people new to RC flying set up and use their new radio.

First up is the run through video me going through the basics and giving you my opinion of the radio, basically comparing it to the Jumper T16. So far I like it, the ergonomics are very nice and it has features sadly missing from the Jumper T16. It has very convenient in radio battery charging. The scroll wheel is very precise and the access buttons are slightly different to the T16 I do like the separate page back and forward buttons which I am sure would add to reliability. 

Please look out for my how to videos.

I purchased my TX16S from the Flying Robot Co in Cape Town. This is not an affiliate link but I want to share where you can get yourself a RadioMaster TX16S in South Africa

Review: Motive-RC R8SB Telemetry Receiver

https://youtu.be/HJuOpSPFDkc
21/09/20

I wanted to purchase a telemetry receiver to put in my fixed wing planes and I came across the Motive-RC R8SB receiver on Banggood.com. Operating with the FrSky D8 protocol the receiver has physical channels PWM outputs and can be used with PPM, SBUS and RSSI outputs for a flight controller. It only weighs 6.8 grams and has two antennas to position at 90 degrees to each other but is not a diversity receiver.

The manual that comes with the receiver is very good and explains how to set up the receiver concisely. Choosing the operation mode and binding the receiver to my Jumper T16 was very easy.

In my video I complete an unscientific range test which it appears to perform as per the manufactures claims, over 1.2 km. Once I have put the receiver into a plane I will publish a follow up video.  

In summary I think this is a good value for money telemetry receiver.

Review: Diatone Tina Whoop

https://youtu.be/SBrYPM_xvxk
16/09/20

The Diatone Tina Whoop is not difficult to set up or fly. I feel it could be a beginner’s drone because it is not over powerful. The version I purchased is only for 2S but there is a 3S version if you want to send it. Apparently there have been problems with the 2S version which was not using Betaflight it had turtle mode set up automatically which was causing the ESC to burn out. My version is the 2S so I have decided not to use turtle mode. The exercise will be good for me!

The quad is not loud so will not draw attention to itself which I think would also help the newer pilot not having screaming motors.

In conclusion this is a nice quad and worth the price I know I am going to have a lot of fun flying it.

First Impressions & Set Up of the Diatone Tina Whoop https://youtu.be/pvwwD-TZLz8
11/09/20

First impressions and set up of my Diatone Tina Whoop, I wanted to show you it is not as easy as plugging in your receiver in to a PNP quad but not difficult you just need a little knowledge.

My first impressions of this quad are good not difficult to set up and flying it Line Of Sight was easy. Much Quieter than my larger Diatone Taycan quad because of its size and “open” ducts.

After I have flown the Tina Whoop for a few packs I will come back and give you my review opinions.

Review: URUAV 6 in 1 Pro Charger 1S

https://youtu.be/x06Hc5OdiTc
14/08/20

Here is my review of the URUAV 6 in 1 Pro 1S battery charger. As normal it is easy to use once you know how to but is not as intuitive as the ISDT Q8 that I reviewed recently but that is not designed for 1S batteries. The only gripe I have with the charger is it defaults back to a charge rate of 500 mAh when you disconnect the power supply. It would also be nice if it buzzed when your batteries have finished charging.

Other than that I think a good buy.

Here is my review of the TBS M8 GLONASS GPS Module. It is a great addition to your drone being able to find your drone if it goes down in a difficult location and is hidden. Bonus is you can see your drones GPS speed.

I have nothing to compare this unit to but it does the job and is easy to install and set up.

This is my review of the Eachine E010S Pro quad copter which I used in my video series Setting Up A  Quad Copter by a Newbie for Newbie’s.

It even has telemetry!

Using iSDT Q8 battery charger as a power supply

https://youtu.be/zvq3sCUlojE
22/07/20

In this video I show you how useful the iSDT Q8 battery charger is, it can be used as a power supply so can supply a constant voltage to your quad copter when you are calibrating the battery voltage in Betaflight.

I think there will be many other uses for the function.

I bought my Q8 with my own money from The Flying Robot Company who have a shop in Cape Town but ship anywhere in South Africa.

Here is my review of the iSDT Q8 battery charger I really like the functionality of the charger it is very intuitive to use I did not need to consult the manual to operate the charger.

The charger is a little noisy but is bearable and the destroy function very useful most of all I liked the battery internal resistance (IR) function which helps you check the health status of your batteries and to know when to retire them.

Would I recommend you buying one? yes I would. I bought my Q8 with my own money from The Flying Robot Company who have a shop in Cape Town but ship anywhere in South Africa.

Review: Hawk Eye Little Pilot VR Goggles

https://youtu.be/2_Z6vEFNzCE
08/06/20

I have had my Little Pilot Goggles for some time now and I am very pleased with them. These are the only goggles I have used so cannot compare them to others but I would recommend them if you are on a budget. They are easy to operate and the screen is very clear even though they are not sealed against you face they work great. They have true diversity receiving the video signal via 2 antenna’s I changed the straight antenna to a patch antenna. Range seems to be good. They do not have a built in battery I attached mine to the back of the straps with Velcro.

The goggles do not have a built in DVR. I wear glasses and they work just fine.

If you are starting out in FPV and would like to test the water then the Hawk Eye Little Pilot VR Goggles are a great budget option.

My review of the Ntech Veryfit H115 fitness tracker.

If you take a look at the Data I complied for the fitness tracker against my Polar devices the results are poor .

Battery Charge Time 1 hr
Operating Time 6 Days

It is comfortable to wear has a good quality strap with a nice method of keeping the strap in place. The App and fitness tracker are very easy to operate and the touch screen button is responsive and works nicely.

Phone alerts when connected to your smart phone worked well.

I would not recommend this fitness tracker for a cyclist because of the big variances in my results and other reasons stated in my video review.

It is more expensive that the Nevenoe 4K camera but in my opinion is worth the higher price. It is a lot heavier then the Nevenoe which gives it a more robust feel.

Review: Final Follow Up Nevenoe Ultra HD 4k Sports Camera

Hi Everyone, here is my final follow up for the Nevenoe ultra HD 4K sports camera as I needed to return it due to the following faults developing.

When the camera boots up the start up melody started playing very crackly so I was concerned it was developing electrical problems. Then around 2 weeks later the camera started randomly not recording video and the image went blank but the sound carried on recording. This did not happen every recording but roughly every 3rd one so the camera became unreliable so I returned it.

Review: SnoMaster Cordless Portable Pressure Washer 12V https://youtu.be/LbruEgWga84
09/10/19

We all like to keep our pride and joy nice and clean and sometimes need to do this when we are away from home. The SnoMaster cordless portable pressure washer will do the job. The pressure is not going to strip the paint off your bike but it will get the mud off. Had a slight problem when first using the pressure washer which led me to drop one star rating please see video for explanation. Mine is going to have a secondary use when I go bush camping as a shower and it comes with the shower attachment. The water container holds 17 litres.

Cleaning a motorcycle with the washer would be ok but a motor car maybe a bit tedious. Quality of the pressure washer and the supplied attachments is good.

Wahoo Blue SC Speed & Cadence Sensor https://youtu.be/Hhp8ji6de2M
28/08/19

My review of the Wahoo Blue SC speed & cadence sensor which I have used for some years now. There is not much to say other than it does the job very well I have had no problems at all with both units on my bicycles. Rain, mud and briefly going under water, do not ask!, they have worked flawlessly. Very easy to pair to your phone or head unit. There are two Wahoo apps you can use with the sensors the Utility app allows you to check the unit is operating correctly and shows you the odometer reading for the unit showing you total Km's logged. The second app can turn your Smartphone into a bike computer. I connect my sensors to my Polar V650 head unit which works fine but for one slight flaw which occasionally happens, discussed in my video, but it is not a major problem.

Coin batteries (CR2032) are used to power the sensors and last around 12 months and I ride at least 3 times a week. I would recommend Wahoo Blue SC.

Garmin Varia Radar https://youtu.be/kuimloSv4oM
21/08/19

Just an overview of the Garmin Varia Radar system. An updated system is available so I just go into the basics of what the radar does. I use a Polar head unit on my bicycle so needed to purchase the head unit for the system. Certain Garmin head units can connect directly to the radar system and display the approaching vehicle data without the need of the radar head unit. Approaching vehicles are displayed as white LED lights and the unit is very good a picking up multiple vehicles. If a vehicle is approaching at a high speed the top LED goes Red otherwise the LED will be Orange for approaching vehicle beware and Green no vehicles approaching. I have had on a very few occasions a false alarm but it has never misses an approaching vehicle.

It is very simple to use just a on / off button on each unit cool feature is that when you turn off the head unit the rear radar unit turns off automatically.

In my opinion a good cycling safety device.

This is my go to hydration pack when doing 3 to 4 hour rides. It comes with a 2 litre bladder but I normally use a 1.5 litre bladder for that duration of ride. It is very comfortable and I forget I have it on. The materials it is made of are of very good quality, I have used mine for some time now and it still looks like new. The two side pockets which form the lower body strap are very convenient to access without taking off the hydration pack. There is enough space in the pack to get any tools and spares and snacks you will need on your ride. I use my bigger camelbak for trips to shop in town because it has more space. For adventure rides the Octane XCT is great not cheap but a great product.

I wanted to follow up the Nevenoe 4K Ultra HD camera being used for RC model flying. It worked very well with no jello and the camera was mounted to my Clouds RC plane which has a very high rev'ing motor. It also handled well a rather fast landing I made which the camera mount was thrown forward and the camera survived the impact.

I think it may make a good quad copter camera at 59g I shot the video at 1080p 60fps

Recently I reviewed the Jogalite warning triangle. I had a problem with the waist strap when attaching it to my Camelbak or rucksack and mentioned in my review I was going to try and modify it to make it more easy to attach. I have now completed the conversion.

Nevenoe 4K Ultra HD WiFi Action Camera Follow Up

When I completed my review of the Nevenoe 4K Ultra HD WiFi Camera I had a slight problem with the 4K 30 fps recording resolution as the picture was jerky. I concluded that I had not been fair to the camera because I was not using a 4K compatible micro SD card so I purchased one and now can show you the footage so you can come to your own conclusions.

I would still recommend the camera as the price is very reasonable.

Very short review of a very useful GoPro camera mount. This is a great little product that will make it much easier to attach my camera to my model planes for aerial photography. I also use this mount all the time on my bicycles so the sound quality is better.

Go visit xtreme's website they have nice camera goods. www.xtremexccessories.co.za

Nevenoe 4K Ultra HD WiFi Action Camera

I was very impressed with this camera for the price again it's not a GoPro just as the Nevenoe 1080p camera I reviewed recently but it is much better than the 1080p camera. Recording in 1080p @ 30fps is very acceptable. I need to purchase a fast writing micro sd card to give the camera a fair chance of recording fluid 4K, I will report back in the future.

The camera is very easy to use and the Smartphone App an asset to use with the camera.

I bought my camera from Takealot.com

Swiss Mobile Gear Smartphone Photographic Kit

Product review of the Swiss Mobile Gear Smartphone Photographic Kit. I needed a selfie stick for my mobile phone and one came on offer on Takealot. In summary I think this is a good deal the quality is good and the Bluetooth remote connected very easily and works a treat.

I doubt the usefulness of the lenses the only one I could possible use is the macro lens if I wanted to take a close up view of a flight controller or ESC on my quad copter looking for bad solder connections after a crash.

Would recommend this product just for the selfie stick and the remote.

Jogalite Warning Triangle, Cycling Safety

This is a short review of the Jogalite Warning Triangle. I feel as a cyclist we need to take our safety on public roads as seriously as we want other road users to do so. This is a simple device which will make you far more visible to other road uses.

I know road riders can be all about aero but safety first?

This is a great addition to your photographic accessory arsenal it is made of plastic but should last if looked after. I particularly like the mini tripod for those fly by pass's on the trail. In an upcoming video you will see the selfie stick works well and gives you steady on bike footage.

At the price I would recommend it, I got mine from Takealot.com https://www.takealot.com/mix-box-3-wa...
