Posted by: VoltsAndBolts - 08-06-2015, 10:09 AM - Forum: Hardware - No Replies

I plan to ues the DT-750 kv motor on my Tri project. Though I would post a little info on it. It has a short bell and a relatively large diameter that contains 14 magnets, the stator has 12 windings. Bearings are 4x8x3mm I hear older units from around 2011 used a 4x7x2.5mm. I may take one apart measure it up and model it on CAD.

  SSG for FPV
Posted by: VoltsAndBolts - 07-18-2015, 10:23 AM - Forum: Hardware - No Replies

I was hunting for a simple DIY gimbal setup and I think this is it!

I found it over on RCGroups,  it's the SSG or Super Simple Gimbal  by crezzee

Take a look for your self. I think it works pretty damn good considering the low parts count, all I can say is "Good Job!"

  Ever been dive bombed by a hawk?
Posted by: VoltsAndBolts - 07-01-2015, 08:08 PM - Forum: RC News - Replies (2)

PARK CITY, Utah, June 30 (UPI) -- A Utah RC enthusiast whose miniature planes were repeatedly attacked by a dive-bombing hawk recorded the bird's attacks with onboard cameras.
The YouTube user behind the rctestflight channel posted a video explaining his RC planes were frequently being attacked by a hawk at the Park City park where he creates most of his test flight videos.

The user said the hawk was apparently "not to keen on RC aviation" so the man and his friends "decided to mount some cameras on board to see if we could get any good shots of him."
The cameras recorded the hawk repeatedly dive-bombing the plane, scoring hits including one direct blow to a GoPro camera.
The camera ended up pointed straight up, but did not break or come free of the plane.
The man said he took care to make sure his plane did not pose a danger to the bird.
"Once the hawk started to dive, I would cut the throttle to avoid any injury from the prop," he said.

That is one persistent bird!

  Silverlit’s DigiCam RC Helicopter is a Tiny Camera with Rotors Attached
Posted by: VoltsAndBolts - 06-25-2015, 07:22 PM - Forum: RC News - No Replies



If you have ever looked at a camera lens and wished you could simply stick helicopter rotors on it and then fly it around the house, you are in luck. Toy Company, Silverlit, has introduced the Nano Flacon DigiCam: an incredibly tiny RC helicopter with a built-in camera capable of photo capture and video recording. Costing 8,980 YEN ($72), the little copter may just be worth picking up for a joyride when it is released this July.


After charging the helicopter, you will have up to four minutes of continuous flight time to capture some photos and video. Beyond knowing that the camera will only be able to capture VGA 640×480 resolution content (that is 0.3MP), there is not much else known about the camera itself. That being said, you probably won’t be buying this toy for more than a bit of fun around the house.



The Nano Falcon DigiCam can be folded up for storage and charging within the unit’s remote controller.
A full charge will take around 35 minutes and all recorded content is stored on a swappable SD card. If your Mac or PC doesn’t already have an external SD card slot, you can use the included USB cable to transfer your images.
If you’d like to pick up one of these small camera copters, pay a visit to Silverlit’s website come July 18th.
