TrueRC is a business started in 2002 by Daniel Naumowicz in Chicago, they principally sell lipo battery and RC acc. Their main focus always been honest rating of their batteries by careful testing off all manufacturer's offering. Many vendors claim 65 or even 100C discharge rate because they know nobody will get to that point (65C mean sub minute flight). Test them with the proper equipments and you'll hand a fire extinguisher at 40C. I started the Canadian branch in 2006 making custom batteries to supply a market where 10-12S 8000mAh packs are rare. I then started FPV, having a good background in electronics, I had good success with my first planes. I added the Thomas Scherrer LRS to my shop in a first step toward making it a FPV shop.


The CP antennas rage came with pionners such as OMM, devonboy and of course IBCrazy. I started building SPW and testing them on an analyzer, I knew the SPW could be optimized as it is a design of the 60s. I worked hard with computer simulations to refine the SPW as much as I could, I finally abandonned and started from scratch. This is when I designed the "virevent" (french word for pin-wheel) a high axial ratio omni. The "turbine" followed, the added lobes where to "even out" the circularity for even higher axial ratio. It is still the highest axial ratio omni out there. Friends pushed me to market my antennas, I setup to build them in batch and added them to my website. I also made tutorials for them, so DIYer like me can make their own. Me and IBCrazy exchanged a few mails/phone calls and we decided to work together for new antennas developpment. At last, peoples of FPVlab where kind enough to open me this place for me to offert support for my antennas or any other aspect of FPV. I must say it feel great to be involved in such a great hobby.

Welcome to the board, Hugo. It's good to see that you have made it over here to the lab. I'm sure you and I will continue to innovate together and keep pushing technology to the limit.

I noticed Hugo's store from a link that Alex had put up on his site, while he is off on hiatus. It's great to have another Canadian store to add to my bookmarks. :)

While I'm here and hoping you notice this post Hugo. Would you check your store's email Hugo. I have need of some antenna and miscellaneous parts help, please. I'm hoping that you could assist in bailing me out since Alex's extended holiday. I hope that you haven't also disappeared with him on research/development work.

Regards
Terry

Yes Hugo I got it. I don't know where it was for so long, but it finally arrived this morning. So I responded and sent you the payment. When it ships I hope I'll get an email notice, just so I'll know when to roughly expect the order.

Anyway Hugo. Thanks again for helping me out and responding to me so promptly. I'm excited while I wait for your antennas to arrive and then testing them out.

Hey guys im looking for a set of goggles (fast shark) to connect with my ground station, so it has to have video input but i dont know if all the fast shark goggles have video input or is it only the fast shark base goggles that has video input!!! and if the base is the only one then can i eventually get a receiver module into the goggle?
so i want something that i can use with my WS and also by itself if im not using the WS

anybody knows
