The Runcam Owl Plus 2 is about to be released. In this review we will take a look at what the new features are, and how it compares to the previous version and other FPV cameras.
Capacitors can make your FPV video cleaner, and your mini quad fly better. But what capacitor should you get? In this article we will discuss the type of low ESR capacitors for your quadcopter.
FPV antenna is the deciding factor that determines the range and signal strength of your FPV system. This guide will explain the basics of 5.8Ghz antennas used on mini quad VTX and VRX, and hopefully it will help you choose the best FPV antenna.
Antennas for FPV can be categorized by their polarization: linear and circular. In this article we will discuss the differences between linear and circular polarized antennas.
When choosing flight controllers, F1, F3, F4 and F7 pop up all the time. These are the FC processors and this article explains the differences and which one we should get.
Runcam 3 has been discontinued world wide due to possible ornamental design infringement with GoPro Session. However when you go to their product page on Runcam’s website, it redirects to a new product called “Runcam Split”.
The Charsoon Antimatter 300W LiPo charger is a powerhouse and it doesn’t lack performance nor functions. This small charger can output a hefty 300W or 20A on 4S and should be perfect for most mini quad charging needs.
There are a whole range of Frsky receivers on the market and we have rounded up the ones suitable for mini quads and micro quads in this article. We will explain the differences in spec and hopefully it can help you choose the one for your next build.
With high power motors, the flight controller can experience high frequency mechanical noise and leads to vibrations and oscillations in flight. Soft mounting is a way to isolate vibrations from getting to the gyro sensor on our flight controller.
We learned FPV flying (first person view) the hard way, crashes after crashes until we get it right. Later on I realized there are exercises beginners can do to gradually build up their skills and confidence. Also, there are also simple safety rules we should follow to avoid accidents and injury to ourselves and others.
In this article we will show you how to start and improve flying a drone in FPV (or multirotor if you prefer). If you are new to mini quad flying, make sure to check out our beginner’s guide first.
The gain of an antenna could change the radiation pattern, and it reflects what the maximum range is going to be for the FPV antenna. In this article we will discuss how antenna gain affects range, and the pro’s and con’s of high gain antennas.
