The URUAV Gimbal Backlight is a DIY kit that you can install in the TX16S radio. The LED strips light up around the gimbal sticks, it looks awesome at night, even visible during the day.
Li-Ion cells such as 18650 or 21700 have higher energy density than LiPo (more capacity mAh for the same weight), they make great battery for long range flying. I will recommend what to buy, and also show you how I built a 4S 18650 Li-Ion battery from scratch.
You can build a working GoPro Hero 6 with spare parts and it might be cheaper than buying the whole camera. If you want a naked GoPro this is way more convenient as you won’t have to spend time taking the camera apart.
The Radiomaster TX16S is a great radio, but you can’t remove/swap/upgrade the antenna for the internal multiprotocol module. In this tutorial, I modified my TX16S with a SMA pigtail so it has a removable antenna.
This post explains how I built my FPV display, a great tool for bench testing, and it lets others watch your flying in the field. This project requires 3D printing, some cheap components and basic soldering skills.
I downloaded the latest version of BLHelisuite (BLHeli Configurator) recently for my BLHeli ESC, but the program won’t open on my Windows 10 PC. There is just no response no matter how many times I click on it. This solution also for BLHeli_32 / BLHeli_S.
Here I will list some of the upgrade parts and accessories for the Jumper T16 / T16 Pro. Feel free to let me know if there are custom parts that I am missing here!
The Anti-fog fan in Fatshark’s FPV goggles is primitive, so I decided to upgrade mine. You’d be able to switch on and off the fan whenever you want, and it supports higher voltage input and adjustable fan speed.
I designed some 3D printed parts for the Martian II mini quad frame. They are not going to make you fly faster, but definitely will make building and repairing more enjoyable!
Are you having trouble with motor outputs on a flight controller? One of the motors just doesn’t spin when you arm the quad? In this post I will share some experience how to troubleshoot and fix “dead” motor outputs on an FC.
