7 separate deliveries, would have been 8 if the FedEx guy delivering my Revolectrix batteries bothered to knock.
I needed to lay down and bask in the afterglow after all this unboxing.
Look how tiny that CC3D Revo Mini FC (lower right). That’s an F4 based FC! Raceflight here I come.
The highlight, or at least most anticipated delivery were my LaForge FPV modules. They add true diversity to the Fatsharks, as well as improved ergonomics. Flying FPV with a bunch of people is such a pain in the ass. No more dip switches, no more counting how many times I pressed rhe channel button. No more wondering how close Boscam E channel 4 is to Fatshark channel 1. My initial tests prove out what my early adopter friends have been raving about. They offer incredible range/penetration compared to well just about anything. They had a race in a cave system this weekend, and the LaForges were out-doing the ground stations. Took about an hour of fettling to install them.
Oh yeah… I’m sure that chicks won’t be able to resist this look.
And although using it and attaching it to my home network gives me the sense of comfort I’d expect from shooting up with a used needle I found at a bus stop, this little Chinese tablet looks like it will be a winner. I got it for $82 on Banggood when it was first released. It’s $97 now. Dual boot Windows 10 / Android 5. My first taste of Windows 10 and it’s as bad as I expected, but not worse. Only took a few min to load Chrome, Cleanflight/Raceflight configurator, BLhelisuite and the drivers to go with them. It even came with the USB2go adapter.
Now I can do just about anything in the field! Sweet.
