Mr Markus Grocholewski shared some amazing photos with me where they took at 36Km above ground using a balloon. The shots are simply breathtaking, so I asked him why and how he managed to send a balloon and camera to space.
iSDT LiPo chargers are great and I’ve been recommending them a lot, but they aren’t the most accurate when it comes to voltage reading. The error is usually quite small and shouldn’t be something to worry about. But it’s always good to check and here is how you can calibrate a iSDT LiPo Charger.
In the new Gopro Hero 5 Session camera updates, they removed the option to change Shutter Speed. You need to install the older 1.5 firmware to have this option back.
Very annoyingly the Foxeer and Caddx FPV cameras don’t have a OSD ground pin. Especially the cable that comes with it have male connectors on both ends making it nearly useless for me. In order to use the camera and play with the settings at the same time, I had to make a DIY cable that breaks out the OSD signal and GND.
If you accidentally damage your 2.4GHz receiver antenna in a crash or by spinning propellers, don’t worry! You can easily fix it without buying a whole new receiver or replacement antenna. And there are considerations about the length of the antenna you should know about.
In this tutorial I will show you how to make FPV Goggles Battery Connector for connecting different power sources and batteries. This hack will make battery charging easier, and allows you to use LiPo batteries that come with standard discharge connectors.
I will show you how to build a DIY LiPo Battery discharger easily with 12V halogen light bulbs. It’s capable of discharging 2S, 3S, 4S, 5S and 6S LiPo batteries.
Flying FPV at night can be the answer to the cold winter with the days growing shorter. Getting bored of flying micro drones and tiny whoop? Let’s get out and fly our racing drone in the dark :)
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.
I will show you how to flash Frsky receiver firmware on your R-XSR, R9 Mini, XSR, D4R-II, X4R-SB, XM+ and some other RX. Updating RX firmware is useful when you have the wrong firmware that prevents you from binding, and getting the improvements and bug fixes in the latest firmware.
