7 drone license plates for the camera drone in your life

Screen Shot 2015-08-20 at 10.46.37 AM

Researchers at the University of California, Berkley are suggesting drones and camera drones have license plates. Well, maybe not actual license plates.

To solve the lack of drone regulation which has had officials up in arms (don’t fly your drone at a wildfire scene, you guys. Just don’t do it.), researchers have come up with the LightCense, which are LED lights that are mounted underneath a drone. The LightCense flashes a light pattern that can be decoded by a phone app or specific camera, meant to uniquely identify each drone, linking that drone to its rightful owner.

Though this sounds great and all, we couldn’t help but envision actual drone license plates. You know, like car license plates. That is why we compiled a list of drone license plate numbers that should exist, regardless of the LightCense, which, though is a huge step for technology, isn’t as fun as making up drone license plate numbers. Yes. We do have a lot of time on our hands.

Drone racing is here


So you did your homework, selected the right drone that complimented your sick or beginner skills, and you’ve even named it. Yes: named it. Now that you’ve given your beloved drone a couple of laps around the park, and now that you have been appropriately deemed as the “drone guy” (or ‘drone chick’) by locals, it is time to take it to the next level. As, in street level. Continue reading…

Flying The Hercules Like A Pro

I’ve noticed a bit of comments online of people having a hard time flying RC helicopters. Whether the helicopter is big or small, inexpensive or high-end, or whether they themselves are old or young, some people just have a hard time with flying helicopters.

To be honest, it took me a while to learn to fly one. I tried to do everything at once and ended up crashing again and again. It wasn’t until I slowed down and read some material online that I was able to learn to fly really well.

The Unbreakable Hercules RC Helicopter is a seriously awesome helicopter. Anyone with a little patience can be flying it around their house or outdoors like a pro. Check out the video below about a guy at a hobby store that flies it with grace and elegance.


Do you want to fly your Hercules or other helicopter with this much control? It’s simple, just practice. But the most important thing to practice is the hover. Start indoors and slowly increase the throttle until it’s hovering a few inches above the ground. Keep practicing until it becomes natural and easy to hover. Then turn, without moving forward. Turn left and right while hovering. Once you get this down you’ve mastered the basics of flight.

Just keep taking it easy and you’ll be flying like a pro in no time. It may not sound as fun, but imagine flying your RC helicopter with precision through the house or office, or showing off to your friends as you fly it outside. Because if you take it slow and follow these simple steps, you’ll be flying like that in no time. The other option is to fly it haphazardly and crash it frequently and hope you can figure it out as you’re zooming through the air with little to no control.

Whatever helicopter you’re looking for, the Unbreakable Series is a great place to start. Check them out on HobbyTron.com.

Even A Child Can Fly It…Sort Of…

In this video a very young girl tries to fly the Hercules Unbreakable Helicopter. It’s not really meant for an audience this young as their motor skills aren’t quite up to par for a helicopter of this calibre.

The father flies it for a bit and he isn’t much better, but it shows how much fun this toy is for a family of all ages. The filming isn’t very good until the father takes over for a minute.

Just watch the first 3 minutes to see /hear the Hercules in action. The rest of the video is unrelated.


You can purchase any of the helicopters in the Unbreakable Series here on the HobbyTron.com website.
