Many new pilots are looking for advice on what to buy when it comes to multirotors. The sheer amount of choice on the market at the moment can be overwhelming and there is no perfect model for every pilot (despite what a few in the forums may tell you!).

I fell in love with this airplane the moment that I pulled it out of the box. It was well packed and sealed to protect it during transport and this is important when you consider just how far a model has to travel to make it half way around the world.

We’ve all seen the guy who runs like an ageing warrior with a spear at the ready, determined to launch his spear into a close earth orbit. In reality, his sprint falls short and he tosses the glider like he has given up the will to live. Never was there a greater anticlimax!

I have no supporting evidence for my claim but I’d like to know your thoughts, so leave some comments below. Continue reading Cleaning a Dirty Glow Engine the EASY Way
The last few years has seen an explosion of the multirotor part of the hobby and driven a huge amount of innovation in the flight controllers and the software and firmware that runs them. Ask a handful of pilots for advice on which you should use and you will get many different answers depending on their experience, models they use and style of flying. You often get pilots recommending the same flight controller with different software and firmware! Continue reading Comparing Common Flight Controllers

The festival was great, filled with awesome attendants and vendors, and hosted by a great group of guys: Jeremiah Guelzo, owner of Stone Blue Airlines, and his team. The festivities started on Thursday, May 19th, and concluded on Sunday the 22nd. There were over 100 pilots who braved the occasional storms on the mountaintop this year.
