Happy New Year!
January and February are going to be busy months for the channel as I have two fully equipped FPV planes to finish building and to get them flying. The AR Wing Pro is complete and ready to maiden. It’s actually been done for a few weeks but Covid made it’s way through our house so I had to quarantine for a few weeks.
The AR Wing Pro is setup to travel with the stock Sunnysky 2216 1400Kv motor, 4s 5000mah LiPo, and a Crossfire Nano Receiver. I’m using a standard 5.8ghz VTX and I have the Runcam2 mounted on the top deck for some nice HD footage while flying.
In addition to the AR Wing Pro, I also need to get the Strix Globin in the air. This little hot rod is mostly assembled as of mid-January, but it needs the electronics installed. I’ll be flying this plane with the original PnP Motor – The Cobra 2217 2300Kv with a 6×4 prop and 4s battery. The Goblin also has a Matek F722-WPX Flight Controller and a Radiomaster R161 s.Bus receiver.
Did you know there are articles right here on the website? Yeah, in addition to the videos on YouTube, I also write supplemental articles for certain products. I just put some material together on the whole Radioking TX18s entry into the multi-protocol OpenTx radio market. Check it out!
Have you ever noticed RCVideoReviews.com is ad free? I must be the last website on the entire Internet without ads. I can turn ads on with the flick of a switch–believe me, they’re installed and working. I made this decision because I am SO SICK AND TIRED of having ads stuffed in my face everywhere I go. So I’ve opted to take a different approach. I’ve recently added affiliate links and opened a Patreon.com account.
You can help keep rcvideoreviews.com ad free by joining me on Patreon and using my affiliate links. If I can generate enough income from alternative channels, I would even turn ads off on the YouTube videos–ALL OF THEM, but that can only happen by developing revenue streams outside of YouTube. If you are willing to help, keep reading.
Affiliate links are provided by retailers to content creators and reviewers as a means for those content creators to earn commissions for referrals. Those commissions cost you nothing. Using affiliate links doesn’t cost you anything extra, it doesn’t save you anything extra. Commission expenses are part of the retailer’s marketing budget. So one way you can help the channel without spending a dime of your own money is to use my affiliate links for Amazon and Banggood. The best thing you can do is to replace your own bookmarks for Amazon and Banggood with these:
If you use my links, anything you buy at those two sites will generate a small commission for the channel. So please consider taking this very small action to help support the hard work I put in to bringing you information on YouTube and here on RCVideoReviews.com.
It takes a substantial effort to continue generating material for RC Video Reviews in both man hours and money. There is no production company or venture funding behind this channel. It is a one man show. If the material from RC Video Reviews has helped you and you’d like to support my efforts keeping new material coming, please consider joining me on Patreon. For as little as the price of a cup of coffee, you can help me keep making videos and generating content for the channel. I have 4 tiers ranging from $3.00 to $20.00. I’m sure you know, every little bit helps, so if your budget allows, please consider helping out.
RC Video Reviews Latest Video
The latest RC Video Reviews video is always available right here. Feel free to watch below or to visit on YouTube. The descriptions below the video have turned into a real bodge job ever since I started adding things like affiliate links. I’ll apologize for the text beneath this video up front–so just go watch the video and read the description on YouTube! 🙂
UPDATE: During the video, I didn't use the screws correctly. After the video, I took the plates back out and re-assembled them. When finished and when the screws are used correctly, the sticks are perfectly straight up and down. Here are the updated instructions: The thin rings need first to be attached to the thick rings with 2 short screws each from the bag supplied by Hawk-RC. Use two M2x6 screws from the bag of Hawk-RC per gimbal here. In the final step attach the gimbals with the screws provided by Hawk-RC bag. And while attaching the gimbals use long M2x14 mm on the inside (towards Multimodule) and the short M2x6 mm outside. Let's install the awesome 4096 FlySky Gimbals in a Radiomaster TX16s! We'll add other CNC goodies too. This video is sponsored by Hawk Creation RC who sent me the gimbal install kit and the CNC hardware for review. ► TX16/18/16S/18S M.O.D FLYSKY Hall Sensor Assembly Kit http://www.hawk-creation.com/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=6862 ► FLYSKY Hall Sensor http://www.hawk-creation.com/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=6863 ► Hawk TX Switch Caps www.hawk-creation.com/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=4568 ► Hawk TX Switch Knobs Caps http://www.hawk-creation.com/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=5454 http://www.hawk-creation.com/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=5450 ► Hawk Creation CNC Magnetic Transmitter Stand http://www.hawk-creation.com/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=5670 ► Hawk Creation Universal Transmitter Balancer http://www.hawk-creation.com/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=3547 AFFILIATE LINK ► Wowstick https://amzn.to/3C6iWna RESOURCE LINKS ►EdgeTX Radiomaster TX16s FlySky Firmware https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/839856795781431317/883980245693251594/20210905_EdgeTX_TX16S_with_FlySky_digital_hall_gimbals.bin ► Mod Details https://github.com/EdgeTX/edgetx/wiki/Flysky-Hall-Sticks-Mod ► Gimbal Drift Measurements https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?3493859-RadioMaster-TX16S-16Ch-2-4ghz-Multi-Protocol-OpenTX-Radio-System/page750#post47689403 RCVR CHANNEL LINKS ► Support the work I do here on Patreon: https://patreon.com/rcvideoreviews ► RC Video Reviews Website: http://rcvideoreviews.com ► Discord - Hang out with the RCVR Crew: https://discord.gg/jSFTASU ► RC Pilot T-Shirts! https://teespring.com/stores/rcvideoreviews AFFILIATE LINKS ► Amazon Affiliate: https://amzn.to/3lEz5ZL ► Banggood Affiliate: https://www.banggood.com/custlink/3DDRJ4cBuV #RCVideoReviews #edgetx #flysky
