RC Electric Plane E-flite Apprentice 15e – Reviewed

Written by Joe Baker on . Posted in Miscellaneous

 

Read more: RC Electric Plane E-flite Apprentice 15e – ReviewedThis is the first of the seven RC Electric planes, peripheral equipment and add-ons supplied by www.rchobbies.com.au.  We intend to do seven separate in-depth reviews over the next few months - on the E-flite Apprentice 15e, Hobbyzone Champ, Mini Super Cub, Super Cub LP, Trojan T28, Cessna 182 and the new Cessna Classic 500 with a final comparison grid on all planes.  Hence, we were very pleased when the Apprentice 15E arrived at our door a day or so earlier than expected. 

As described in the “Upcoming Reviews”, we will be evaluating the planes from both a true beginner as well as from an expert perspective and will report on all sorts of info in areas that you are unlikely to have seen in other reviews, ie space required to fly each plane as a beginner pilot or an experienced one, take off and landing distances, type and condition of landing medium required for that plane, peculiarities of flight, advantages of Li-Po performance batteries, up market DX6i transmitter, simulators, and Swallow EQ chargers to mention but a few.  We are hopeful of covering everything that anyone wanting to fly RC electric would need to know.

So let’s get started!

We all love a well-trained dog.  But training a dog is not always easy and we need all the help that we can get.  These days electronic training units are very much in vogue.  After our first dog training unit which we reviewed a couple of months ago we received a request to take a good look at the BigLeash from DogWatch  and supplied by courtesy of Ace Dog Supplies. The BigLeash seems to be the top dog, so to speak, when it comes to these remote training units.
I don't know if my dog was looking forward to this training session but I certainly was and here are the results.

 

B&D Rolling Door Opener – Reviewed

Look at this!  Installation made easy, well built and quiet to operate.  What am I describing?  It’s the B&D Diamond Power Drive door opener graciously provided for a review by www.bnd.com.au

What they didn’t know was that I have had one of their older products before and that is still going strong operating one of my five roller doors, pretty much on a daily basis, so just maybe I might be a bit biased.

At digitalreviews.net we tend to only pick products we are fairly sure come from a good stable, having used their older products before or are impressed with the supplier’s code of ethics.  Anyway, I shall take you through the installation, which I intend to do on my own and check that this later model, the Diamond PD - Power Drive operates as well, or manages to equal my older one.  Surpass it?  Let’s see!

Read more: Blu-Ray Disc and Network Media Player Inside -- HDi Dune BD Prime 3.0 ReviewedWith the sheer number of Network Media Players on the market today, manufacturers are increasingly looking to find a clever angle to distinguish their products from the others. In putting a Blu-Ray drive inside the BD Prime 3.0, HDi Dune's angle is more of a convergence. A convergence of everything HD.

Apollyon Rising 2012 - a Book Review

Written by Martin Regtien on . Posted in Miscellaneous

Read more: Apollyon Rising 2012 - a Book ReviewImagine writing a book that you know will have a lifespan of only two years.  That's the danger of publishing a book with the date 2012 in the title.  However, it also gives an immediacy for the buying public as we all want to know what's going to happen in the very near future, rather than decades down the track. 

And so it is with the book Apollyon Rising 2012-- The Lost Symbol Found and the Final Mystery of the Great Seal Revealed by Thomas Horn.  If you think that is a long title, there is also a synopsis on the cover: A Terrifying and Prophetic Cipher Hidden from the World by the US Government for over 200 Years Is Here!

This sounds like the ultimate conspiracy theory in the style of Dan Brown.
Except...
there are some disturbing facts that sets it apart in this popular genre.

If you have read the news article written about this product, then you already know that I am very nervous about this.  I see my little dog, a Bichon Frise, through “rose coloured glasses” I’m told, but I do need to stop her welcoming people by jumping up at their cars.  The experts at www.dogmaster.com.au who are only a phone call away and have supplied the Petsafe Deluxe remote trainer to me for a “hands on” review, have absolutely assured me that if I follow their instructions religiously, all will be well.

 

So here goes!

The little unit I just received from www.oo.com.au is just the shot if you are visiting a foreign country and don’t know the native language well.  I threw some batteries in and ran it through its numerous functions.  You can see some of the translator’s capabilities within the product description and I can report that what it does, it does well.  For its size, the Trinvo translator is pleasantly surprising.
