I am working with AKK on a new VTX – the OBVTX (Oscar’s Backpack VTX). It has some unique features and can be mounted on the back of a micro FPV camera, hence the name “backpack”.
Here are some of the best FC (flight controllers) for racing mini quads using Betaflight, KISS and Raceflight firmware, based on their features, spec and user feedback.
In this article we will recommend some of the best mini quad ESC based on my personal experience as well as community feedback and reviews. We will cover the pro’s and con’s of each ESC, and what should consider for your next build!
In this tutorial I will show you why and how to setup GPS in Betaflight for a quadcopter. I will also explain which is the best GPS module to get.
The Runcam Split Mini camera is a smaller version of the Split V2. The mini uses a smaller camera and a smaller 2-layer PCB with a 20x20mm mounting pattern. It can be used as an FPV camera as well as recording 1080p HD footage at 60FPS.
Buzzers with built-in battery can help locate your crashed RC model even after the main battery is ejected or dead. We will compare a few popular options to find out which is the best for you.
In this review we will check out the iH3 micro quad – an RTF drone (pre-built) with a Runcam Split Mini HD camera. The Split Mini records 1080p HD footage, and can be used as the FPV camera at the same time.
The Flycolor X-Cross 35A is the upgrade of their popular Raptor 30A ESC’s. The X-Cross ESC runs the latest BLHeli_32 firmware and support Dshot1200 protocol. It’s compact and lightweight at an affordable price.
As the name suggests, the Runcam Racer FPV camera is designed specifically for drone racing. In this review we will find out what makes it great for racing, and how it compares to other FPV cameras in image quality.
I liked the Holybro Atlatl HV VTX because you could install it in the FC stack and made a clean build. It had all the features you’d need in a mini quad including SmartAudio and a microphone. And they have just released an improved version – the Atlatl HV V2 VTX.
The two most popular top end FPV Goggles are no doubt the Fatshark HD3 and HDO. Since the release of the HDO, I have been asked many times if it’s worth the extra cost to upgrade over the HD3. I have used both for a while now, so I will compare the two and try to help you decide which is more suitable for you.
Lipo batteries degrade over time, sometimes this degradation results in dead cells. It seems to be a waste to throw the whole pack away because other cells might still be working. In this post we will show you how to make a working LiPo by combining the good cells from multiple damaged/defective batteries.
