Product Review: HobbyKing Quanum DIY FPV Goggle Kit v2

My full review of the HobbyKing Quantum DIY FPV Goggle Kit v2 available at HobbyKing.com for around $55 depending on your location.

While they won’t pull Fatshark or Skyline users away from their beloved goggles, they are the perfect way for first time FPVers to jump in without have to spend hundreds of dollars. Only the viewing distance stops these from being the perfect product.

Pros:
– cheap
– customizable
– big screen

Cons:
– screen may be too close for some users to view comfortably without modification
– top strap doesn’t adjust

Product Review: Hovership ZUUL Superbeast: Part 2

The wait is over for the first carbon fiber mini quad frame from the King of the 3D printed quads: Hovership.

For those of you who don’t know (aka: live under a rock), Hovership’s MHQ is one of the most downloaded and celebrated 3D printed quads in Thingiverse history. Last year, the MHQ2 was released, which was a GoPro toting 4s machine that defied the laws of plastic by taking more abuse then anyone expected.

But why stop there? Why not make a carbon fiber racer the comes in two flavors? Enter the ZUUL.

Setup:
Hovership 12amp ESCs
Hovership 2204 1960kv motors
Hovership ZUUL Superbeast frame
D4R-II Receiver

Hovership ZUUL Superbeast: The Yi Sessions

Sometimes you have an FPV session that makes you feel just like a bird. It’s not about racing or time trials, but pure, free flight. I just had what I would consider to be the best session of my entire time flying, and I am not afraid to say that I am so happy that I’m actually tearing up a little. This is why we fly. This is FPV. Thank you all for sharing in this with me. You are my FPV Family, and your support and your kindnessss in helping us to all bring this hobby to the masses means the world to me. ‪#‎MQC4Life‬

– 1.5mm 3K Taiwan Matte Carbon Fibre main plates
– 3mm 3K Taiwan Matte Carbon Fibre arms
– FPV camera plate sized to suit most common 33mm board cameras
– Anti-vibration Mobius plate
– Complete fastener pack

My Setup:
Cobra 2204 2300kv motors
12a Blue Series ESCs
Naze32
Fatshark 250mx VTx
