Here is a quick walk though how to build the Eachine Tyro69 Toothpick Micro Quad, and some thoughts after flying it a few times. The Tyro69 is probably the cheapest DIY FPV drone kit you can get on Banggood.
Frsky released a new Taranis X9D+ 2019 radio! It has the same classic X9D+ shell with upgraded hardware and additional features. But is it as good as the original, and should you upgrade? Let’s find out!
There has been a lot of fuss about the Emax Tinyhawk Freestyle micro quad, so I got myself one and try to find out what’s special about it.
The Skystars Talon X110 is one of the first “toothpick” style micro quad that supports 4S. It has a slightly stretched-X frame with reinforced struts for the arms. It’s using Skystars’s own 20x20mm F4 FC stack with a powerful 15A 4in1 ESC.

Let’s face it, the first buzzer by ViFLY was a bit premature, and they released a few more revisions in a very short amount of time. I wasn’t a big fan of that so I skipped all of them.

The Aomway Commander V2 FPV goggles is a long-awaited successor to the V1 released back in 2017. Improvements including better optics and a revised OSD menu. These goggles have similar spec and price to the Dominator HD3 and Skyzone SKY03, is it going to be a competitive choice? Let’s find out.
