Christmas is coming and people start to ask me what quadcopter (RC drone) they should buy as Christmas gifts in 2017. In this guide I will cover the important factors in choosing a great drone for present, and I will also provide you with a few ideas and recommendation.
Softserial stands for “Software Serial”, which can create software emulated serial port (UART) for connecting extra devices on the flight controller, and it’s also a great solution to the inverted SmartPort on F4 FC’s.
If you use Telemetry and voltage warning on your Taranis TX, you might notice the frequent false alarms due to voltage fluctuation, e.g. sudden drop in voltage due to punch-outs. In this tutorial we will show you how to set up Logical switches to make a more reliable voltage alarm.
The GT-R90 is a micro racing drone from Diatone that uses 2″ propellers and supports 3S and 4S LiPo batteries. In this review we will check out its features and performance.
While reviewing Diatone’s new micro racing drone, I found they integrated the current sensor in the XT30 connector (LiPo battery connector). I think that’s an interesting idea and I have to share it with you guys.
The BWhoop B06 micro quad is made by BoldClash. Similar to the famous Tiny Whoop, all the propellers are protected by ducts on the BWhoop so you don’t need to worry about crashing, but it’s bigger and more powerful.
Parallel charging allows you to charge multiple LiPo batteries at once using a single charger. Parallel charging is a more effective and faster way of charging your batteries, and it allows you to go out and fly more often, which is what this is all about.
This micro quad thing is getting out of hand and the community keeps breaking the records in “the smallest micro quad”. Winter is coming, and we all need a micro drone to fly indoor, and I think it’s time to build one for myself!
This article explains what FC looptime is and how faster looptime might affect your quadcopter’s flight performance. We’ll also talk about gyro update frequency and ESC refresh rate which are equally important.
In this review we will take a look at some new video transmitters from AKK, which are affordable VTX’s that come with SmartAudio.
In this guide we will explain the most important factors when making the decision to purchase an HD action camera for your mini quadcopter (a.k.a. racing drone). We will also list a few of the most popular cameras and provide some pros and cons of each.
VTX Control is a new feature in mini quad VTX’s that allows you to change VTX settings such as channel and output power in your Betaflight OSD or using your Taranis LUA Script. VTX Control is sometimes also called “VTX Telemetry”.
