I’d like to re-introduce something really old, but not many people know about but can be very useful and fun – the Hobbyking’s store and found this 3-channel video switcher. I have plans using it on an RC airplane so I bought one see how it works.
Printing TPU had been problematic for me in the past year. The filament often got stuck mid way through a 3-hour print which was frustrating. I tried many different things and nothing seemed to work. The solution was simple, I only had to change out the tube which costed me only $5!
The Reptile S800 V2 is my second FPV wing and I absolutely love it so far! Extremely durable, affordable and easy to build. It flies pretty nice too! In this build log I will document what I did and offer some tips for anyone new to wing FPV.
Diatone keeps on improving their R90 series micro drone, and it’s just getting more affordable and durable! This model is intended as a starter quadcopter for new pilots. But I also see potential as a platform for installing a split-mini style camera for HD recording.
Is this possibly the most popular 1.3GHz VTX for long range flying on a fixed wing and plane? Let’s check out the 1.3GHz 400mW VTX from ReadyMadeRC.
A flying wing needs mixer setting up in your radio for Aileron and Elevator to work correctly. Using flight controller you might not need to worry about this, but without an FC you’ll have to set this up manually.
The Nano Cricket 5.8Ghz VTX by ReadyMadeRC is probably the smallest video transmitter I’ve seen that is capable of 200mW output power. Let’s take a close look at its performance in this review.
Although I do think the naming/marketing is a bit misleading, the Binary F10, nevertheless, is an interesting new flight controller. It is faster than any other existing FC on the market because it can run 32K PID loop at the lowest CPU utilization.
The brand new Foxeer F722 Dual flight controller has just landed and I can’t wait to find out what new features it brings to the table. In this review we will take a close look at the spec and build quality, and how it performs in a mini quad.
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.
What drone pilots see while they are flying, are the low latency video from analog FPV cameras. To choose the best FPV camera for your multirotors, there are a few things to consider which we will discuss in this post.
Flitetest came up with the idea of turning cardboard pizza boxes into small RC wings. They kindly shared the plan of the plane and that’s what we are building today!
