Raging Rotors: Not a Confession, But Declaration of Int…

It may sound cliche, but I feel like a true pioneer. On many occasions in the past year or so that quadcopters/drones/multirotor technology, flight, and regulations have been compared to the early days of the internet, calling it a ‘wild west’ phase for the technology. That pretty much nails the current situation of the whole multirotor hobby right on the [...]

Raging Rotors: HAM it up!

I have mentioned on a few occasions that a specific FCC license is required to use high powered FPV transmitter systems (like a 600mW Immersion RC TX system). The license I refer to is an Amateur Radio License, or Ham Radio License. This license gives you the ability to stay out of trouble when the high powered transmitters accidentally cross [...]

Guy Attempts to Save Drone on First Flight

If you haven’t seen the video already, it’s pretty funny. What’s slightly suspicious is the way he’s perfectly framed in the shot. Having flown and tried to film many things with our drones quadcopters, it’s rare that we get it so lined up. Either way it’s an entertaining video.
