New video! – “The Mall”

Filmed during the Rotor DR1 shoot at Rolling Acres mall in Ohio, USA
Link to the episode in which the footage was used.

The Rolling Acres mall closed down in 2008. It is a really creepy place. It’s huge and empty. Every single piece of glass is broken. The glass sky lights were broken and water was dripping on the floor with an echoey splash. It was absolutely awesome! Someone in the Rotor DR1 community knew the owners and arranged that we could shoot there. Naturally I had to bring the tricopter.

Reception was surpassingly good considering I was using 5.8Ghz. Probably because there weren’t a single electrical device in or even a power-grid nearby. I broke a total of 8 props during the day and flew a total of 8 batteries. I lost all 3 landing gear during the day (couldn’t find them) due to low flying and scraping the floor.Continue Reading

New product, new shipping…

Things have been really busy over here lately. You guys have been ordering like crazy, thank you for that! I have some new things in the works that I’m not quite ready to announce just yet, but they are coming. I’m also trying to squeeze in editing a video, which I hope to have ready soon as well.

Since people have been asking for it, the store now has an insured and (to some countries) trackable shipping option. The standard non-insured option is still available. A list of the trackable countries and more info on the different shipping options is available here.

Hobbyking seems to have trouble stocking the TGY-210DHM and the high quality BMS-210DHM is nearly impossible to find online for some reason. So to make things a bit easier I for people to get this excellent servo, I decided to buy a small batch of 100 units. Check it out in the store here.
