In this article I will explain what an ESC is, and cover all the basics of ESC used in FPV drones (aka mini quad). Hopefully you will find this an informative guide for beginners getting into FPV or RC in general.
FPV Goggles are an important part of the first-person-view experience. With the growing popularity of drone racing and FPV flying, there is a rapidly growing market for FPV equipment, and as such there are more and more FPV goggles released all the time. This guide is to provide the information you need to decide on which one best suits you.
This tutorial explains the basics of mini quad motor: construction, design features and other factors that affect the performance and efficiency of a motor. This will help you choose the optimal motor for your next quadcopter and racing drone build.
Dedicated FPV cameras provides low latency real-time video to the drone pilots when they are flying. To choose the best FPV camera for racing drones and multirotors in general, there are a few things to consider which we will discuss in this tutorial.
When it comes to choosing a video transmitter (VTX) for mini quad, the considerations shift from long range and high power to small size, bandwidth friendly and accurate transmitting frequency. In this article we will discuss all the factors on how to choose VTX for a quadcopter.
FPV racing drones are fueled by LiPo batteries, they are able to store and deliver large amount of power. In this guide you will learn how to read the spec of LiPo for your mini quad, and how to choose and handle them safely.
In this article we will compare the best simulators for FPV Drone Racing. Quadcopter simulators have been around for decades, but only recently we’ve begun to see decent options designed specifically for drone racing and FPV freestyle flying, some of which are even free!
In this post we will discuss the differences in frequency bands for FPV: 5.8GHz, 2.4GHz, 1.2-1.3GHz and 900MHz. Each of these frequencies have pro’s and con’s such as range, cost, antenna size and regulations.
The Reptile S800 V2 is my second FPV wing and I absolutely love it so far! Extremely durable, affordable and easy to build. It flies pretty nice too! In this build log I will document what I did and offer some tips for anyone new to wing FPV.
Some people love listening to motor noise during flight because it makes them feel more connected to the quadcopter. This tutorial will explain the different ways of getting audio for FPV, and discuss other benefits of doing so.
Lipo battery balance plug can sometimes be damaged by spinning propellers in flight. it’s extremely unsafe to use this LiPo with a broken balance lead as it can short itself easily and cause fire. In this article I will show you how I fixed mine.
