Apart from aerial photography, what else can you do with a quadcopter (or multicopter in general)? Racing! Drone racing is quickly becoming a popular sport around the world, you cannot miss it if you are into flying multirotors or FPV.
This tutorial aims to help you understand the basics of multirotor motors and propellers, which will help you choose the suitable motor and propellers for your quadcopter build. There are some general rules you can follow, and considerations to bear in mind when choosing the optimal and effective motor and propeller combination. Read More
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.
I wanted to review this Eachine TX01 VTX/Camera combination, because it can potentially be used on brushed micro quads such as the Tiny Whoop, and only half the price as a FX797/FX798.
What drone pilots see while they are flying, are low latency analog video from FPV cameras. To choose the best FPV camera for your multirotors, there are a few things to consider which we will discuss in this post.
I reviewed the iSDT SC 620 500W battery charger, which is going to replace my good old Accucel-6. Features including XT60 power input connectors and max 20A charge current.
The Foxeer Arrow HS1190 FPV camera is probably the only camera on the market that provides voltage OSD capability. And in this review we will check out the performance and how it compares to the Swift and Eagle.
We have tested the new Cobra Champion 2205 2300kv motors. This review is purely based on flying experience and impression about these motors, thrust data was not measured.
I got this RCbenchmark 1520 thrust stand to replace the Turnigy thrust stand I have been using for my motor, ESC and propeller testing. Here is a quick comparison and review.
In this article we will review & build the Zuul Racehound V2 frame (Hovership), which is a H mini quad frame with replaceable arms.
PDB (power distribution board) is used widely in mini quads, they make builds much simpler. This Arris PDB has dual BEC (5V and 12V) and LC-filter built in. What’s interesting is the integrated OSD that can overlay vital flight data: for example timer, voltage and mAh used from current sensor. It can also be used as a convenient tool for PID tuning in the field.
The Radiance FC is a new line of stand-alone flight controller by FuriousFPV, a company that is known for the insane amount of innovation they have been coming up with the last few months.
