A couple of months ago Shabbir was on holiday and while he was there, he built himself a Shrieker. The quad is tiny but very fast, Shabbir later converted the Shrieker into a more tame, indoor flying micro quad.
NTSC and PAL are two video system standards. There are difference in frame rate per second and resolution between the two.
FPV Goggles have been around long ago since RC hobbyists flying their fixed wings and gliders. But now FPV gets even more popular with multirotors especially quadcopters, and FPV goggles is one of those things you can’t miss if you are into FPV flying.
A common question we get asked a lot is how to monitor or measure battery voltage on a quadcopter or multirotor during flight. It’s important to know your LiPo battery level to avoid over-discharging them.
RSSI is a measurement of how good radio signal is, which stands for Received Signal Strength Indication. It’s an important safety feature to help avoid lost of radio signal, which could lead to unexpected quadcopter crashes and damage to properties.
How about some ESC that isn’t BLHeli or KISS? Castle Creations developed the Quadpack ESC’s for multirotors that use their own custom firmware, with some very interesting features.
Tiny Whoop is great, but how about running Betaflight or Cleanflight on it? Now it’s possible and there is more than one option.
Polystack is an innovative modular flight controller system by Chickadee Tech. Instead of taking everything on one single FC, Polystack allows you to stack multiple extension boards on top of the FC. Therefore you can mix and use any functionality you want on your quad.
Testing our 2nd BLHeli_S ESC – DYS XS30A on the thrust stand.
There are many AIO FPV setup out there that includes both camera and VTX. Today we are testing the Eachine EF-01.
We recently received a set of these SE2008 2550KV motors from DYS. What’s interesting is the smaller stator diameter of 20mm instead of the common 22mm. I also run it on my thrust stand to see what size propellers perform well.
In this post we tested a new player in mini quad motor, the Tornado T1 2205 2600KV motor by BrotherHobby.
