Fire Fighting Drone Walkera Zhun FE15

Wallkera FE15

Happy 4th of July and we are not here to talk about a cannon for fireworks but a cannon for Fire Fighting, called the Zhun.  Walkera has began developing and testing with their local fire agency to secure a bid for a full scale deployment.  The Zhun has an ultra strong load capability and anti tremor design, folds up ready for a fire fighter’s deployment. The quadcopter carries a high magnification telescope and the high frame rate night vision camera. With high precision, it can launch the fire extinguisher projectile accurately in a complex fire weather environment.  I had the privilege to preview the testing and edited this video.

It is amazing the Zhun is able absorb the amount of force created from the cannon. The real-time target control points are displayed on the ground control points, which greatly improves the accuracy of shooting and improves the efficiency of rescue…

Walkera Drone VR Games Devo F18

drone virtual reality

2016 might be a great time to get those Gamers outdoor for a new challenge. We have been wondering what it would be like to bring Gamers and First Person View (FPV) Pilots in one room or rather in one field for an intense world of Virtual Reality competition. Walkera Drone VR Games are not only Virtual games, but a Reality concept that is applied to GPS Racing Drones. Pilots actually fly their GPS drones into virtual Funnel Gates or shoot on virtual targets using the new advance Devo F18 radio transmitter.  See these initial tests we recorded.

If this has not caught your attention yet, I am sure it will with the AMA or FAA. First in the world, Walkera initial beta test included three Real Flight modes: Battle mode, Race mode, Classic Collecting mode. In Battle mode , FPV pilots will get on their F18 and begin an intense battle with targets. In Race mode, pilots compete on an Agility Course featuring various obstacles, funnel gates and hairpin turns…

Walkera QR X350 Pro

Year 2014, time to look for a low cost, quick to assemble quadcopter, to be modified with FPV gear, something to travel with, overseas. So we purchased the Walkera QR X350 which can be assembled in 2 minutes, with no tools on hand. Today, our SAR teams were informed of another exciting version of the 350 size, the QR X350 Pro that uses Mission Planner. Lets see how hardy this drone is, as we take it for a stress test in every way… yeah.. in extreme ways..

First Impressions: I must say the X350 Pro flies very well, pre-tuned. It Loiters perfectly out of the box. sure enough, it did every standard thing with the Mission Planner. The only thing, out of the box, without any modification I am not able to add telemetry module or osd, however others have managed to solder them on…

Walkera Devo 10

Devo 10

Synopsis: We have been looking for a low cost quality transmitter. One transmitter does it all, the Walkera DEVO 10 2.4Ghz Digital Transmitter. Walkera DEVO 10 is one of the best priced versus performance radio system on the market. Usually for more channels, it cost more, now this DEVO 10 has 10 channels and comes with a RX1002 10-Channel receiver for under US$150! This DEVO 10 has a clear and easy to understand menu, the respond time is quick. Walkera placed a new computer chip inside the DEVO 10 and re-wrote the program menu, making it fast and responsive. It is one of the few transmitter that has telemetry functions.  Best of all you can deviate it to fly DSM2 and many protocols.

We like the DEVO 10 radio system alot and we recommend this to all RC modelers, we use all the 3 ways switches for different flight modes. You can use this DEVO 10 for the Walkera DEVO series helis, the famous QR x350 Pro, QR-Ladybird, Genius CP, Mini-CP and of course all diy builds!
