George Chatzisavvidis is very kind to share with us how he enabled OSD menu for the Fatshark Diversity module and goggles button support, by adding a minimOSD.
DShot is a new communication protocol between flight controller (FC) and ESC, substitute to Oneshot and Multishot. DShot stands for Digital Shot.
When it comes to radio receiver protocols, acronyms are often used: PWM, PPM, SBUS, DSMX etc. In this post we will explore the differences of these RC radio receiver types.
This is a story of a FC that died right after I finished the build, and there came another FC to the rescue. Thank you Newbeedrone, thank you BeeFlight FC!
Recently I tested the RE1 F4 FC and mPB (PDB) from BrainFPV. When I looked up the FC/PDB combo, I found several ads stating that the RE1 is the most advanced racing flight controller ever made! Wow that’s a big statement, guess we will find out in this review.
One big confusion and misconception when it comes to FPV Cameras are the CCD and CMOS. Despite the huge amount of science and technical information behind the subject when comparing the two, we will only discuss the few basic things that matter to us as FPV hobbyists.
SMA and RP-SMA connectors are widely used in FPV transmitter and receiver systems, it’s important to understand the differences. The gender of SMA and RP-SMA connectors are just as confusing.
How about some ESC that isn’t BLHeli or KISS? Castle Creations developed the Quadpack ESC’s for multirotors that use their own custom firmware, with some very interesting features.
Polystack is an innovative modular flight controller system by Chickadee Tech. Instead of taking everything on one single FC, Polystack allows you to stack multiple extension boards on top of the FC. Therefore you can mix and use any functionality you want on your quad.
The Kombini FC is developed by FuriousFPV. It’s a PDB integrated F3 flight controller.
The Piko BLX flight controller is basically a F3 flight controller that is integrated in a PDB, yet it’s tiny and light weight. The FC is developed by FuriousFPV.
The inevitable question for RC hobbyists is how to get rid of old or damaged lipo (Lithium polymer battery). There are tons of Youtube videos showing how dangerous lipo batteries can be if not handled correctly, causing explosions and fire flames. So how do we dispose damaged or old lipo batteries safely?
