“The Age of The Drone” from Zoot Pictures – Premiers 19 Feb 2015

The documentary from Zoot Films is releasing on Canadian Broadcast Corporation at 9PM tonight, 19 Feb 2015.

I am unsure how or when it can be viewed outside of Canada.  I will have access to this soon, as Zoot Pictures is sending…

Frame is a DRQ250. Did you count the number of rolls? And I just picked it up and kept flying. Amazing little guy!

The Most Awesome RC Review EVAR!

Please SUBSCRIBE, COMMENT, and LIKE this video if you found it helpful! Thanks! http://everythingcpo.com

This honestly is the best RC review video you will probably ever see. Not only do I do an unboxing, review, and flight…I also add a GoPro AND even perform the first re-boxing demonstration. This, folks, has never been done before. You saw it here first!

Share if it made you smile at least once!

CPO’s FPV 250 Racing Quad – Current Setup and TX/Telemetry (DRQ250)

Please SUBSCRIBE, COMMENT, and LIKE this video if you found it helpful! Thanks! http://everythingcpo.com

This video shows you what the near final assembly of my FPV 250 quadcopter looks like. I’ve made a few changes from the original placement of components based on feedback from Facebook…so I thank you all for that.

I do have another build video coming, which covers the top half of the build, but I wanted to get this out…



CPO’s FPV 250 Racing Quad – Motors, ESCs, Power (DRQ250)

Please SUBSCRIBE, COMMENT, and LIKE this video if you found it helpful! Thanks! http://everythingcpo.com

This video covers the dirty section assembly on the DRQ250 FPV racing quad that I am building. This is how I chose to put the lower half together, and I think this is going to work out nice for my needs. Next video will cover the clean section and final assembly of the two sections.



DRQ250 Maiden Basement Hover

I couldn’t wait until tomorrow to do a maiden…so I had to do a quick test hover in the basement. So far so good…

DF DRQ250 (Mini D) Frame Assembly (Dirty and Clean Sections)

Please SUBSCRIBE, COMMENT, and LIKE this video if you found it helpful! Thanks! http://everythingcpo.com

In this video I complete the build of the dirty and clean sections on the Drone Frames DRQ250 (Mini-D) FPV racing quad I am putting together.

The assembly is pretty straight forward, but I tried to really simplify the assembly for you by showing a lot of detail during the process. My plan was to make this the easiest-to-follow-along 250…



CPO’s FPV 250 Racing Quad – Overview

Please SUBSCRIBE, COMMENT, and LIKE this video if you found it helpful! Thanks! http://everythingcpo.com

Hey everyone! In this video I am showing you the components for my FPV Racing Quad. ReadyMadeRC was gracious enough to send me some gear for build and review…and I intend to share it all with you!

This will be a multi part series, starting with this video…the intro. This video is a little “talky” I admit…but I really wanted…



ReadyMadeRC 5.8GHz FPV CPO 135 Tricopter Test

Please SUBSCRIBE, COMMENT, and LIKE this video if you found it helpful! Thanks! http://everythingcpo.com

This is the initial testing of the ReadyMadeRC Quick Start FPV Package. I strapped it to my tricopter (which I hadn’t actually flown in a while) – partly to get used to flying FPV and partly to test the 5.8GHz system to make sure it will meet my needs. It was very nice to have a truly “plug and…



CPO’s Dromida Kodo Overview with In-Camera Video Footage

From Dromida.com:

Ready to film and fly, anytime, anywhere!

You can pay two — even three — times more for a camera-equipped quad if you want to. But why would you do that when you can have the KODO for just $59.99? It’s as complete as any ready-to-fly quad out there, shoots crystal-clear photos and videos, does flips at the touch of a button and measures just 3.5 inches (90 mm) diagonally.

And that’s just part of the…

Dromida Ominus Inverted Autos

Playing around with “inverted autos” with the Dromida Ominus quadcopter from Tower Hobbies. Well…I wasn’t really landing them…but I think they still qualify as autos.

CPO’s Dromida Ominus Quadcopter Review

Hey everyone, this is my look at the Dromida Ominus “nearly impossible to break” quadcopter. You can pick this up at Tower Hobbies. My best piece of advice… get two. They are that much fun. You are going to want to fly with someone! 😉

This is a really cool quadcopter. It looks good. Flies good. And has that interesting design that allows it to survive prop impacts. I don’t know exactly how the prop stops…
