Xbox Elite Controller

The Good

  • Four grip buttons lessen the need to move thumbs off the sticks
  • Hair-trigger switch is useful for first-person shooters
  • Swappable, taller analog sticks make fine control a bit easier
  • Nice rubberized grips
  • Solid build quality and pleasing black-and-silver aesthetic

The Bad

  • Rear grip buttons are much too sensitive and make holding the controller somewhat awkward
  • Replacement d-pad feels a bit too squishy
  • Rounded analog stick option is slippery and near-useless

The Ugly

  • Paying $150 for a few features you want and a bunch you probably don’t

For the longest time I have said that the Playstation controller was the best controller. Not any longer. The PS4 controller sucks! The touch pad is way to big, the share and options button are flush and hard to press. Then the option button when it is not hard to press it is pressed accidentally because it is so close the square button. For me it is not comfortable to use!

I have been playing my Xbox One a lot and I actually much prefer the Xbox One controller over the PS4 controller. It feels more natural even though it is more bulky and much heavier. I will be buying an Elite controller at some point, probably not on day 1 though. I would love to see Sony come out with something similar because they really need something different. The PS controller design is flat and boring!

Cooler Master MasterCase 5 Pro

The MasterCase 5 Pro is a Free Form modular system that allows you to easily upgrade any hardware component inside your PC case. What Cooler Master defines as Free Form;

“Free Form enables you to vertically adjust or entirely remove drive cages via an intuitive clip-and-click panel, opening unparalleled flexibility to integrate replacement accessories like fans, water cooling reservoirs or even extra-long graphics cards.”
When choosing a case I wanted something that not only looked great but was also a beast in terms of being able to add more hardware to it as I built my gaming PC. Basically I wanted to future proof it in terms of having enough room on the inside for dual video cards, multiple hard-drives, water cooling options for when I overclock my machine, and something that was easy to manage. The MasterCase 5 Pro was that case! Look at the design of it, the black on it is sort of a matte black which gives it an even more bad ass look to it. The thing looks like the frigging Batmo…

FIVE must have accessories you should purchase with your Phantom 4

Extra battery - I’d recommend two extra batteries but they are expensive so at the minimum at least get one extra battery. The battery last about 25+ minutes or so, depending on what you are doing with your Phantom 4. If you are in Sports mode, flying fast, then the battery will drain quicker or at least it seems that way to me! I currently have three batteries and I am seriously thinking about adding a fourth to my arsenal.Bigger capacity MicroSD card - The Phantom 4 comes with a 16GB memory card which is just not enough storage capacity to be useful for most video shoots, especially if shooting in 4K. I’d opt for at least 64GB. Make sure it is 4K Ultra HD ready, faster write speeds are a bonus too! Currently I have two 64GB cards plus the 16GB card that came with the Phantom 4. I use the 16GB card for still images and the bigger cards for video.Phantom 4 Propellers - If you are new to unmanned ariels / drones then you might not have heard but accidents happen, often. Usually the pro…

ProCraft Cases backpack for Phantom 4

I recently purchased a ProCraft Cases backpack to use with my Phantom 4 and I wanted to give a brief overview of the product; as well as some of my initial opinions. The most important aspect of this bag is that the Phantom 4 does indeed fit, this bag was designed for the Phantom 3 initially. That is one of the biggest problems with the Phantom 4 just launching, sellers are trying to market their products made for the Phantom 3 as being for the Phantom 4. Some things do work well, like ND filters, but other accessories might not work with the Phantom 4 being a bit different in design from the Phantom 3. So as I purchase these items I will probably do short demo videos and write-up reviews on the products as I get them. The outside of the ProCraft Cases backpack is made of a vinyl material that feels very well made. It has 2 straps that allow you to wear this over the shoulders — there is also a handle on top of the bag if you prefer to carry it. There are 6 pockets (including the pouc…
