Any idea if this is a good toy ? (Mind, I've just had to service the car, so the credit card is feeling the pinch at the moment :violin: )

Nothing wrong with the hubsan, its very similar to the the V939 beetle - small size for indoors and stable for beginners and you can get replacement parts for it so once the pinch is off the credit card, nab one or two.

Super easy!:

Remove from packets:

Connect to a wiring harness:

Add electrons from a handy Lipo:

Mounting them to the Quad is easy to as the LED strips have a 3M adhesive backing.

Shopping lists can be compiled here, I've used the JST-XH to 6 x JST harness and LED strips with JST connecters:

Yes, good, wasn't it. That was a quadcopter type thingy, and I'm curious about how they manage to work it into a car show :think:
