GPS Rescue mode in Betaflight is similar to “Return to Home”. When you lose video or radio signal, the quad is supposed to return to you using GPS.
The Hive_16 from Newbeedrone is a 16x16mm all-in-one stack including FC, RX, VTX and ESC. It’s probably the smallest complete package you can get for an FPV drone right now!
I used to love AIO (all in one) flight controllers, but they can be awkward to use with 4in1 ESC. With 4in1 ESC getting more reliable and easier to work with, I have been looking for a non-AIO FC that works well. This time we are looking at the Spedix F4 FC!
Long range radio systems using 900MHz including the Frsky R9M and TBS Crossfire typically use a single dipole antenna on the receiver. The optimal antenna positioning can be different from traditional 2.4GHz systems with diversity monopole antennas on the receivers.
In this post, I will be reviewing and building the Ummagawd Acrobrat 3″ micro frame from Rotor Riot, with the latest Runcam split Mini V2 camera.
F1, F3, F4 and F7 are the different processors in flight controllers. This article explains the differences between these MCU, the advantages and disadvantages and help you decide which FC suits you best.
The Aomway Commander V2 FPV goggles is a long-awaited successor to the V1 released back in 2017. Improvements including better optics and a revised OSD menu. These goggles have similar spec and price to the Dominator HD3 and Skyzone SKY03, is it going to be a competitive choice? Let’s find out.
This tutorial explains how to setup the R9M TX module and R9 Mini receiver in Betaflight. The R9M is a long range module that operates on 900MHz band. It’s compatible with most Frsky’s radios including the Taranis X9D-Plus, QX7 and Horus X10.
The Jumper T12 might be one of the best value radios on the market right now. It’s convenient and flexible as it supports multi-protocol and works with receivers from Flysky, Frsky, Spektrum and most toy quads.
I have been asked a few times whether the TS-80 soldering iron is better than the TS-100. In this article I will give you an overview of the TS80 and how it compares to the TS100.
You might wonder, “isn’t Crossfire faster than SBUS? Why would you still want to use it?” Well yes, you should use CRSF over SBUS whenever possible. Crossfire requires both RX and TX pins of a UART while SBUS only needs the RX pin. When you don’t have a spare UART that then your next option would be using SBUS.
