FPV Freestyle!

FPV Freestyle!

One of the newest events coming out of FPV racing is the informal aerobatic competition known as “freestyle.” This event usually follows the FPV racing contest and is performed on the same racecourse, with the option of using the gates and flags as part of the pilot’s routine. Right now, freestyle is very informal and optional, but interest in this offshoot of […]
An Inexpensive Printer that Delivers

An Inexpensive Printer that Delivers

For many people, 3D printing is something that they’ve heard about but which they figure is either too expensive or too complicated to dabble with. Since the arrival of the very first $350 plug-and-play-style 3D printers late last year, however, that belief might be on its way out. Consider the M3D: a compact, consumer grade 3D printer that promises “high quality […]
