The term upgrade refers to the replacement of a product with a newer version of the same product. It is most often used in computing and consumer electronics, generally meaning a replacement of hardware, software or firmware with a newer or better version, in order to bring the system up to date or to improve its characteristics.

If you compared the price of a raptor metal head and a Futura one, you will see that the price is very close. I was always complaining about the price (it is too expensive) and at the end, i add so much upgrade on my rappy.... I must be crazy !!

with a lot of crazy metal parts, this beautiful metal head cost only 200â?¬
release a swashplate and has now a page for the
and add depending on your Ubuntu version either
For Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid:
deb http://nginx.org/packages/ubuntu/ lucid nginx
deb-src http://nginx.org/packages/ubuntu/ lucid nginx
For Ubuntu 12.04 Precise:
deb http://nginx.org/packages/ubuntu/ precise nginx deb-src http://nginx.org/packages/ubuntu/ precise nginx
Now you can run
When using the public nginx repository for Ubuntu, you’ll get this error
W: GPG error: http://nginx.org lucid Release: The following signatures
couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY ABF5BD827BD9BF62
First of all this is only warning and you can ignore it, if you know what are you doing and in case you prefer to add public key, used for signing packages and repository, just run:
gpg -a --export 7BD9BF62 | sudo apt-key add -
wget http://nginx.org/packages/keys/nginx_signing.key cat nginx_signing.key | sudo apt-key add -
apt-get update should now run fine, however after running an
apt-get install nginx
you may still get this kind of error:
dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/nginx_1.2.2-1~precise_amd64.deb (--unpack): trying to overwrite '/etc/logrotate.d/nginx', which is also in package nginx-common 1.1.19-1 dpkg-deb: error: subprocess paste was killed by signal (Broken pipe) Errors were encountered while processing: /var/cache/apt/archives/nginx_1.2.2-1~precise_amd64.deb
just remove nginx-common and retry
apt-get remove nginx-common

These are the most difficult part to find... more to come soon
Can be bought at www.draganfly.com for 80â¬ + shipping costs.
|The original frame is weak in many places and was designed more for indoor flying. A lot of people work on the Roswell Flyer and they all designed their own frame using carbon pipes. I decided to buy the carbon upgrade frame. As usual, all models: Roswell Flyer (sold out), HMX4 (copy of previous), Dragnaflyer are sharing the same design and are fully compatible. They were all created by the clever Mike Dammar from www.spectrolutions.com|
|Content of the upgrade Kit.|
The manual given explain everything and is completed. All screws, heat rubber for isolation, and a small hex key is given. Nice job. The overall frame is light and the wires are hidden in each carbon tube. A spare carbon tube is also in the kit.
Aerodynamic canopy, very light, the circuit board is
maintian by the four pylons.
Maybe the motor mount has a little too much flexion. Let
see if it survive in a small crash. Note that the pinion is now
after the motor mount and no more inside the imaginary
inner circle. It will also be in contact with the ground in case
The kit is not overprice and the frame seems to be reliable and light. A must for all old roswell flyer!
