I suppose it’s safe to say that FPV drone racing is blowing up. The recently announced World Drone Prix promises to pay out a ridiculous $1 million in prize money.

ImpulseRC Alien – FPV Miniquad Frame

Aliens are coming! With what seems like a million frames to choose from when building an FPV racing mini-quad, it feels almost impossible to decide which one is the right choice for you. I would definitely consider the 2015-Drone-National-winning Alien from ImpulseRC as one for your short list. Available in three sizes (4″, 5″ and 6″), this frame can accommodate a huge [...]

Raging Rotors: Not a Confession, But Declaration of Intent

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 [...]

ECX Torment

Racing The Horizon ECX Torment Short Course Truck

Racing The Horizon ECX Torment Short Course Truck By: Tim Mohr During the 2011 iHobby Expo the BigSquid guys got in a rather heated debate, we knew the ECX Torment was a good basher, but could it actually win a race? Cubby was rather vehement that it was impossible, even at the local level, while I was sure that indeed it could. Once [...]
