Welcome to New Generation Hobbies. Beside being one of the leader FPV solution providers of the world, we are actively looking into making this hobby better and more affordable to everyone. We are looking into new products, and bringing you news about FPV products and solutions. Please click on the links below to read the new articles, or follow the links under the “New Products” menu.
April 29th: we just opened a new section on the website dedicated for LiPo battery connectors. With the FPV quad racers destroying the balancing connectors on the batteries, there is a need for replacement balancing housings. We bring you now a variety of these balancing plugs, housings and terminals as well, from 2 pin to 7 pin, corresponding to 6S batteries. Click here to access the connectors section on our web-store.
April 26th: From today till the end of the month we will include a free NGHobbies battery strap with every order or every purchase made through our online store or showroom. the Strap is 220mm long and 20mm wide, should fit most of the 160+ size racers our there. Please note our battery strap has an anti-glide surface, so your battery will not slide out:
April 26th: Brand new 600 line FPV CCD cameras arrived from RunCam. These are the new SWIFT cameras in 3 different colors for your convenience. I did not have time to test them yet, perhaps I will record a few minutes of video tomorrow to compare the performance with others.
April 25th: This past Saturday I managed to test the new Cyclone antennas. Well folks, I have to tell you that there is no magic. It’s all science. If somebody calls out for a magical performance antenna, well, then put another evenly priced set right beside it and test it both. Put the videos side by side – as I did – and watch it back. Then you can draw your own conclusion if one set works better than another one. The Cyclones are indeed an excellent performing antenna set, but so is the similar priced Spironets. See the video we did over the weekend at the end of the article. Click on the below image to read the article and see the video:
April 21st: Attention, new racing antennas from VAS (Video Aerial Systems) arrives. These are the Cyclone antenna set, available to order from us by clicking here. Read our article about the three flagship antenna comparison from VAS by clicking on the image below:
April 19th: Fat Shark announced Yesterday that the new FSV2444 Diversity Antenna modules will be shipping form their facilities at the end of April. We hope the get the first shipment in the first week of May. To clarify for all, this is not a true diversity module with two separate receivers. This is an antenna diversity which checks the signal quality and switches to the other antenna if the quality suffers:
Please note this product is not available for purchase yet, as soon as we receive pricing information, we will update the website with prices. Even if this is not a true diversity, the following demo video shows the power when used with a high gain directional antenna in conjunction with an omnidirectional Spironet antenna:
As you can see as long as the high gain antenna is selected when flying forward, the reception outperforms the standard Omni antenna on the right side of the image. However when the racer flies behind the ground station, the two images are identical as both have the omnidirectional Spironet and breakups, interferences are identical on both.
March 30th: A new section was created on our website to include HDMI cables. With the digital video technology advancing in the FPV hobby the latest releases of the Fat Shark goggles are capable of displaying downscaled 720P images on the Dominator HD, Dominator HDV2 and Dominator V3 goggles. In order to connect various DJI, AR-Drone and other HDMI capable drones to the Fat Shark goggles, carious combinations of HDMI cables are required. Please not – if you did not know till now – the HDMI is a digital signal which can be split in “Y” or even more than 2 branches without the loss of signal quality. So from a DJI Phantom you can run a “Y” splitter to display the image on a set of Fat Shark goggles and on an HDMI capable display monitor as well. To access our HDMI selection click on the picture below.
March 26th: Our web store will be down for maintenance tonight between 10PM and March 27th 2AM EST. We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause.
March 20th: We received a shipment of the new EMAX 2205 motors. Please see our article about this here: EMAX 2205 Motors. You can also purchase these motors by clicking on the images below:
March 16th: In order to keep our customers finding things on our website, we are constancy improving the menus, the categories and the selection on the website. The Racing Drone Motor section was so busy with all the available motors that it needed a little reorganization. Now the motor section is organized by racing motor size, giving our customer a clear view on the selection by size:
March 14th: We have created a new section on the website called Tools, Glues, Thread-Lock. This section will host all the tools, glues and the much needed blue thread-lock for any serious racing drone build. We have metric and imperial hex wrenches down to 1.5mm as well as metric and imperial socket tools to get those hard to install nuts in place.

February 21st, 2016: I tested the new Fat Shark 900 line 16:9 camera during an FPV flight. This camera is amazing, the ground stays pretty bright even when 2/3rds of the image is bright sky. This is a perfect companion to the wide screen Dominator V3 goggles. This video was recorded directly on the Dominator V3. The wind was a bit gusty for this flight and a spot got onto the camera on the first take off, I did not notice that till I landed the second flight. Even with that, the FPV performance of this camera is pretty clear. I barely can wait for a sparkling sunny day to fly it off a lake:
February 19th, 2016: The TBRC Reflex 38 racing wing is in stock now. Check out the presentation about this wonderful wing below:
This great flying wing has given countless of wonderful FPV flight and wing racing hours to lots of people around the world and now it is in stock at NGHobbies. Click the image below to go to the product page.

There is only limited quantity available, so consider this gift a treat! Se how beautiful this pen is:
February 2nd, 2016: Today is Groundhog Day. It looks like this year will be the year of the racers in North America, all three groundhogs predicted an early spring. Halleluiah! I love winter, but till not there was no sign of winter in Toronto. I never even had a chance to go out skiing. So at least we can start FPV flying early. Anyway, in light of all that we enabled the “3D Printing Services” on the website. Some people requested items from Thingiverse to be printed for them, and we can offer that for our Canadian customers only, at this time.
January 25th, 2016: We quickly tested the new Dalprop tri-blade 5045 propellers for thrust. Please see the video below on the results:

Click on the image to see the product page. Please tune in next week for a new video on testing and measuring the thrust of the tri-blade propellers.
January 21st, 2016: We have received a shipment of Helical and Duraspec antennas designed and manufactured by Video Aerial Systems – aka iBCrazy. The VAS helical antennas are nothing new, they do a nice comeback to New Generation Hobbies with these new flexible feed lines which allow them to be installed directly on the goggles. The Duraspec antennas are the latest nearly indestructible set from iBCrazy, just watch the video on what he is putting them through for testing. Amazing strength, hopefully will withstand your crashes as well.
January 20th, 2016: The 5.8Ghz antenna section of our website got a face-lift. We rearranged the 5.8Ghz antennas by manufacturer to have a better visibility in your search and selection process. Once there are too many of them in one section it becomes difficult to oversee and find things.
January 10th, 2016: All Black Pearl monitors are 15% off in January. To order click on the picture below.
January 2nd, 2016: We prepared a video to compare different FPV cameras in low light situation. This video was prepared with the sole purpose of demonstrating the performance of the RunCam Owl camera claiming 0.0001 lux sensitivity to light and to see how it measures up to other FPV cameras on the market. See the below video for the results:
December 31st: New Generation Hobbies wishes all our customers Happy New Year. We wish all your FPV and radcing wishes come true in 2016!

September 27th we went out to fly and thank to the slow motion video capture on the new iPhones I was able to capture the following video in slow motion:
Yesterday (September 25th, 2015) we added several new products to our online store. We are happy to provide you with the Mobius Action Camera in two different options, Standard and Wide angle. We also have accessories, like the always sought FPV Cable for Mobius. Beside the Mobius, several antenna adapters were added, as well as a new Low Voltage Battery alarm which measures the voltage of each cell and provides you with a screaming 110db signal when any of the cells – or the total voltage gets low.
IBCrazy’s new race spec antennas can be found below or on this page. He also posted a new video on how to repair these and how to fix broken SMA connectors, with a very convincing way on how to break off the SMA connector from an antenna with a hammer when it’s held in a vice. Please be sure to check it out by clicking here and scroll to the bottom of the page.
