There's "OR" there in the statement. So drone not need to be able to fly beyond line of sight or autonomous. As long as it is unmanned then it is drone.

If many people use rc helis or planes to capture videos & in the process causing issues like multi-rotor rc have, probably we would call them drones too.

i get your 2nd point. most likely the PR is what causes the commotions in the 1st place. no one uses "drones" on RC flyers before "the issues" with AP drones arises. even on helis attached with a camera . shakehead.gif

People who doesn't really fly quad will call simply coined these quad as drones. When you say drones, these peoples will know what is that but when you say quadcopter or quad for short, they will keep asking what the heck is that.

Nowadays, even RC forum such as RCGroups.com changed all the quadcopter forum naming by adding drones to it in order to capture wider audience.

wider audience is good point. yeah, "RC quads" does sound a bit more daunting as oppose to "drones". however, i think a "drone" would imply some kind of fancy tech and toy quad like the syma x5c(and the likes) don't really qualify.

I just got myself a MJX Bugs 8. Basic kit without fpv (optional). I just read reviews that the mjx fpv goggle not that good. Can someone recommend me alternative fpv goggle that is compatible with bugs 8 but not expensive? Do I need 3rd party camera too or the mjx ones should be good?

I'll definitely get that. Thanks.

Is it normal for the live view cut off (noise screen) now and then while flying, even with good goggles & good 5.8GHz fpv camera?

depends how much interference you're getting on the selected channel. typical mitigations:
- try using different channels
- ensure both antennas are the same type, ie: RHCP w/ RHCP.
- ensure both antennas are screwed properly
- get better antenna (if video degrades as you go further)
- ensure vtx antenna not too close to motors.(if video degrades during punch outs)

There's a rc reviewer on youtube that got two Bugs 8 that have one sticky motor. It'll come down when the motor stuck. So that yikes! Mine too have one of the motor a bit sticky. Another youtube video by different user show that the problem was the ball bearing that was destroyed. If this is true then it is fixable at low cost but still not fun. There are other affordable brushless quad/drone that don't have this problem, so don't give me "you get what you pay for" excuse.

I don't know whether I should return mine or fixed or even upgrade the motor myself.

I'm waiting Banggod to release this new Jumper T8SG Multi-Protocol 2.4G 10CH Compact Transmitter for Flysky Frsky DSM2 Deviation Futaba.

Seems to be a very compact TX running with Deviation firmware. Same as those on Devo 7E/10/12E with a modded 4-in-1 module. Will be very good for micros and whoop  as travel companion.

Seems Banggood is throwing price for this TX to flood the market. Even this TX still have some flaws that need improvement but is darn cheap not to get one. Now at $69.99 compared to official price of $99.99. I have one inbound even though I already have two modded Devo, Devo 7E and Devo 12E. Hopefully it comes in a week or so.

That is one cool project you got there @SupermotoXL. I would love to jump into it since I have almost all the similar parts laying around.

Too bad as I don't have access to a 3D printer and this much of printing cost way more than just to grab few good 3K carbon fiber frames.
