Where to mount your LiPo Battery?
Building an FPV Racing Drone for the Beginner
Where should I put it? Last week someone asked the question about top mount vs. under-slung battery mounting for racing quads. This started plenty of debate as you would expect, a lot of which in my opinion was complete garbage, so this got me thinking. It turns out that the problem isn’t as simple as […]
Next level track features
This is a simple guide of what to purchase if you’re looking to build a racing drone. We’ve been getting quite a few people asking how much it costs, what to buy, etc, so we’ve come up with this list of components that will make for a cheap-but-good drone for a beginner — good enough […]
WizardTracker Lap Timer: Never miss a lap!
The SDRL is well underway and the Propnuts team are out as often as possible practicing messing about with our quads crashing into the DYS gates and Red Paddle flags. As the Scottish weather turns and the days get shorter we will be headed back indoors to fly and the LED lights come back out, […]
THUG Team Elite 240 Frame Build and Review
Remember that time you ripped the best lap of your life? You were sure it was way faster than any other lap you ran before. Way faster than anyone else, infact. You made no mistakes, hit every gate perfectly, and that throttle was pinned the whole time. Except, then you go check in with the […]

S800 Sky Shadow fixed wing build log and impression – part 1
Fellow Propnutter Dan recently built a 130mm quad and it’s seriously impressive. Really it is, and I knew I had to build something similar myself. Enter the Realacc RX130. For the build I went with the following parts: Frame – Realacc RX130 carbon frame kit with PDB Motors – Emax RS13-6 3300KV Race Spec Motors […]
Adventures With The Eachine QX95: Building From Scratch
2016 will be marked down in history as ‘Year of the Miniquad’. Honestly, the amount of new kit that’s came out in 2016 was absolutely hideous. There isn’t a week without a new frame, new motor, new protocol, new cam and new hype. But, just like your mini quad, what comes up – must come […]
QAV X Pod Build (Realacc X210)
So, the magic smoke came out of the board on my printed brushed micro after it slammed into the ground and refused to disarm. Rather than buying just another board, I figured it was a good idea to build anew and test out one of these nice Eachine micros. They offer a fully built BNF version but I […]

Hype! One of our first posts on PropNuts was a build log on the Realacc X210 QAV X Clone Frame (available here) which was built up with a basic spec load out and a custom GoPro Session mount. 3 months on we have decided it is time to step up the game and build a […]
