Wilf's Ranger EX
« on: March 22, 2019, 11:43:12 AM »
Spring has sprung, and out from the Wilf's Lair emerges a new FPV plane! This one is the Ranger EX, what we think is an ideal FPV plane. In fact, Wilf forced me to order one the day after this video was taken.

Wilf has a 4K camera mounted on a gimbal system beneath the nose. As well, he hasa Runcam mounted on top for the actual FPV piloting. Soon to be installed is the iNav Flight Controller but for the initial flights, it is just an ordinary receiver in use - one step at a time, a wise approach.

This was a great Spring flying day, albeit a bit breezy and turbulent, as you can see. The iNav will take care of that for this lightly loaded aircraft.

Enjoy:

Well, we're trying very hard to do just that!

After all, you are the one who taught little Danny and me everything we know about flying rc power planes over 30 years ago, at the Toyground. (Of course, that may not be saying much.) We's gonna have bigly fun with our Rangers, plus we will get Herman's outfit sorted out. Good times!

The poney express arrived at my door this morning, with a big box tied in hand. My Ranger! Yipee ky o! The box looked like it had been dropped from a cargo plane but the contents were welll packaged and  initial inspection shows perfect condition.

This was ordered from Banggood in late March, arrived right on their predicted schedule. Unlike some places, there were no funny charges added. They gave 4 choices for shipping, three of which were over $100. The fourth option, EMS, charged  $30-something  so the choice was obvious. I had checked its web site at   ems.post  first, as it sounded too good to be true. I did decide to pay $2.50 for shipping insurance, just in case, as that seemed like a pittance anyway

As with previous orders from Banggood, I got delivery to my door and no further charges. I like these guys very much! All of their prices and charges are quoted in $CDN, so there are no surprises.

Now, to stick it together and install the Lemon Rx, Vector flight controller and the Vtx plus its camera, etc., and set out for the Toyground.
