ESTES proto X nano quadcopter

RC quadcopters have been around for a long long time and I really wanted one, so I did some research and found myself a perfect RC quadcopter, a ESTES proto X nano quadcopter, probably the smallest quad in the world.  it uses a 2.4 GHz controller instead of those cheap infrared ones, USB charging, built in gyro, tons of LED lights and it is super small (take a look at the size of it on my Samsung Galaxy S3)!!!  Charging time is about 20 mins and you get about 5-8 mins of play time, with the built in gyro, it is very stable while flying BUT you will probably need some practice first because after all, it is very small in size and IT IS a quadcopter.  I find the controls are very very sensitive but after a few small crashes, flying in a small room is really not a problem at all.  Price wise it’s very affordable, only $40, sadly I had to get it in Mississauga because I couldn’t find it in GTA area.  Anyways, you never know if it would become available everywhere in Toronto soon because it is really a super fun toy to have.  BTW, their official website is estesrockets.com but they dont have this on their site yet, maybe this is too new?!?

P.S.  because it uses 2.4 GHz, you could actually have a few friends flying a few of this at the same time, sounds like fun doesn’t it?  hehe

Sony Bluetooth madness!!

I am always a bluetooth fan, most of my gadgets have bluetooth connectivity built in, and yes, another temptation drove me nuts again.  A Sony bluetooth Headphones (DRBTN200W) and a Sony bluetooth Wireless Mobile Speaker (SRSBTV5W), all I wanted to get was the headsets because my other bluetooth headsets that I use at work don’t work so well, so it was a perfect excuse for me to get a new pair AND I found this bundle deal, an added bonus little bluetooth mobile speaker… which I totally fell in …  Anyways, I was pretty impressed with the sound quality of the headsets compare to my old ones, still trying to figure out how long the batteries would actually last, guess I will know it soon 😛  I was extremely surprised the sound quality of the little mobile speaker, I have tried a few other brands but they all sound horrible, but this one has bass and everything, I strongly recommend this to people if you are looking to buy something similar, tho it costs more but I think it’s well worth the money 🙂

TRAXXAS Rally

Welcome the newest member of my RC family, my new TRAXXAS Rally 🙂

DSC06601What a coincident, my best friend Raymond asked if I wanted to play RC with him, and of course I didn’t mind 😛  After doing some research, I figured I should get something that I don’t have, maybe a Rally?  I used to play a lot of different on road and off road RC cars, I think I have about 10 RC cars in my basement, but they were the old days toys, time to see what’s out there.  I found this TRAXXAS Rally, great reviews, love the ready made body cover and everything.  Don’t really want to surprise anyone but you know, I had never had any of my RC cars running 7 cells, this is actually my first 🙂  Anyways, I am charging the battery right now and will probably try it tomorrow if the weather allows.  If anyone has something similar and want to play together, let me know and we can figure something out 🙂  plus I hope I will take some awesome video on this baby in the coming future too 🙂

SCOSCHE® motorMOUTH II Handsfree Car Kit

Instead of using a bluetooth headset while you are driving, this is a really good solution, SCOSCHE® motorMOUTH II Handsfree Car Kit.  If you have an auxiliary input in your car, all you need to do is pair up this baby and plug it in your AUX and you are done!  This thing is very small, rechargeable, it just turns your car stereo into a bluetooth handfree.  I have tried a few other bluetooth handfree kits including headsets but I am not very satisfied with them all, so I did some research and found this.  Keep it in mind that this is a lower model that I bought which means cheaper, a higher model motorMOUTH II stereo is awesome as well because on top of being a handfree kit, it would also allow you to play music from your phone to the device, but it’s a little bit too expensive for me since I can still play music from my car stereo 😛  Anyways, just wanted to share this with you all because I am sure someone out there must be looking for something like this 🙂

Sony ActionCam (HDR-AS15) and CamCorder Cradle (AKA-LU1)

Sony ActionCam (HDR-AS15) and CamCorder Cradle (AKA-LU1)

It is that time of year when I have to waste some of my Sony points.  A Sony ActionCam, A mountable POV camera matches Carl Zeiss® optics with a rugged exterior that can take on mud, snow and water. So go legend, record it all in HD!!!  I know you would probably ask why not a GoPro?  I know GoPro has good reviews, some even said the video quality is the best and everything, but I did a lot of research on YouTube where people post their video comparison, I totally adore what everything Sony ActionCam has to offer, 4X slowmotion, full HD WiFi, amazing night recording!!! and much more, not to mention the price is soo affordable too.  I will try to make some videos with it soon, I already did a few tests and I am very very happy with it, might even try to mount the cam outside of the car and make some highway videos as well, will see 🙂

BTW, Sony is doing promotion on a few things, ActionCam is one of them if you want a good price now 😛
