I've been looking forward to this review for a while. My current main search and passion is to find a performing, HD cinewhoop that flies like a toothpick. And the short of it is, that I think I found it, and that's why I'm going to be reviewing, setting up and flying the GEPRC Skip3 HD

Holybro Kopis2 HDV with DJI digital FPV
I've finally decided to take the plunge into digital FPV drones. I've been very interested for a while now and lucky to finally be able to get into it. For my first digital FPV experience, I've chosen to go with an already assembled quad, instead of building my own from scratch.

Mobula6: Complete setup and flashing 48kHz JESC firmware
It's a truly great time for our FPV racing and freestyle drones hobby. For one, we get to enjoy a pretty rapid rate of tech improvement. Even though I've been into FPV drones for about a little under 3 years, it never ceases to amaze me how much things have changed.
Eachine E016F: Hovercraft and drone
But while figuring out how to put together my own craft, and while waiting for the snow to come (it's been record high temperatures in Finland and we still don't have any snow?!), I bought one of these ready to zip around, cheap hovercraft to see what they are all about.
How to get started with FPV quads
About a month ago I stumbled accross a YouTube video of FPV drone footage. For whatever reason it felt quite captivating. So much so, that within a week I ended up ordering a ready to fly drone set - namely the Wizard x220.

If you are new to FPV, the Wizard x220 provides a decent flight experience out of the box. That being said, there are a number of small, cheap and easy to do upgrades that will dramatically improve your overall experience. In this part 1 of the upgrade guide, we're gonna cover: props, antennas, low voltage buzzer, chargers and velcro straps.

How to direct solder an antenna to your vtx
If you are lucky and your angle antenna socket snaps in the 'right place', you can get away with just soldering it shut where it snapped. However if you are unlucky and you break the pin inside the socket or lose one of the pieces, the only remaining option would be to direct solder an antenna to the vtx.
Living with smart home automation for a year
I first got interested in smart homes and home automation technologies roughly about 2 years ago (early 2016) and for the duration of the first year, that was it, just interest. Reading articles, exploring software. Then I found Home Assistant.
