    One of the best

    posted by eelcogg on 12/04/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    Great performance, amazing laminated screen, exceptional battery life (3 days with normal use, light use can be up to 5 days I guess). Comes with stock android, already set to English. The system was already rooted so you can install the OS of your choice. ...
    Cons:
    Several sites report issues with the GPS, as with all mediatek-based smartphones. Luckily there are fixes available, ranging f...

    Good product

    posted by eelcogg on 06/10/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    Operates as stated in the description: If the signal on the channel does not change for one minute, it starts beeping. I plugged it to the aileron channel, but it should work for any channel. Maybe not recommended on the throttle channel. The beeping is lou...
    Cons:
    Maybe a bit expensive, since it only has one piezo buzzer and a few other components. A low voltage buzzer is cheaper, and that...

    Prop saver

    posted by eelcogg on 04/03/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    Price, it's cheap. The machining is good. All the screws fit the threads, all the holes are centered. No complaints there.
    Cons:
    The 'shaft' that fits the propeller could be a bit longer. It is only 2mm or so. A large propeller will not fit because it does...

    Nice camera, but narrow FOV

    posted by eelcogg on 04/03/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    Can't beat the price! It appears to be good quality. The dome is perfectly clear and arrived scratch free. Night vision works well. There is a foam ring around the lens to prevent the IR LED's reflecting on the dome.
    Cons:
    Colors don't look quite right, not very vibrant. Red seems a bit brownish and overall the picture is a bit washed out. I guess ...

    Good motor

    posted by eelcogg on 04/02/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    Spins nice and true, no noticeable vibrations even under load. Currently swinging a 10x4.7 prop on a 2S lipo. Lots of low end torque and quiet. Comes with mount, collet type prop adapter and screws.
    Cons:
    Heat shrink was not shoved all the way up where the wires exit the motor. An easy fix with new piece of heat shrink and a dab o...

    Just for fun!

    posted by eelcogg on 12/04/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Very fun to watch as it tries to follow a track. Turns like a real tank. It comes with a printed track and a very thick (=good) black marker. Comes with batteries! You can really get creative with the tracks, do spirals, intersections. The tank tracks are ...
    Cons:
    Original packaging was damaged during transport. Not good if you want to buy this as a gift. It's won't recognize tight turns. ...

    Why are you reading this review? Buy it!

    posted by eelcogg on 12/04/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    Cheap, only 89 cents so just buy several. The plug fits snugly. It does not feel cheap at all. Delivery was very fast. It only took 2 weeks to Europe.
    Cons:
    The first time the socket can be a little stiff. Don't be afraid to use force and wiggle it in. After that it's okay and goes s...

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    -Very bright -Cold white light (yes I will list it as a pro because that was what I was looking for). It's not too blue of greenish, just cold white. -Rugged: One of these lamps has been outside for a year. It's under a roof, but otherwise not protected fro...
    Cons:
    The aluminium LED-holder is screwed in the black heat sink. The thread is of poor quality. If you twist it ever so slightly the...
