The inevitable question for RC hobbyists is how to get rid of old and damaged LiPo. LiPo batteries can extremely dangerous if not handled correctly, causing fire and even explosions. In this guide we will show you how to dispose LiPo batteries safely.
LC filter is one of the most basic filters in electroincs, which comprises of just one inductor and one capacitor in its simplest form. This circuit is widely used by FPV hobbyists to suppress noise in power created by ESC and motors. Read More
This tutorial explains the basics of quadcopter hardware, what each component does and how they connect with each other. There is a lot to cover, make sure to check out the links for more information on each quadcopter component.
The media tends to use the term “drone” to refer to what we RC hobbyists call a “quadcopter” or “multirotor“. In this article I am going to share some of my ideas what drones and quadcopters are, and what the differences are between them. And how a quadcopter flies.
Quadcopters aren’t the most efficient aircraft compared to planes and fixed wings, therefore they tend to have relatively shorter flight time. I will explain the many factors that affect flight time on a drone, and how to keep you in the air for longer.
Here is a glossary of technical terms, abbreviations and acronyms often used in FPV, mini quad, quadcopter, racing drones and RC in general. Some jargon can be difficult to understand for beginners, hopefully this list of drone technical terms will help clear the confusion.
Most quadcopter software including Betaflight and KISS allows users to adjust PID values to improve flight performance. In this post I will try to explain what PID is, how it affects stability and handling of a drone, and also share some tips on how to tune PID. Read More
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.
When it comes to flying multirotors, generally there are two main flight modes we use. One is acro mode, and the other is self-level mode.
This article provides an extensive list of brands and components for FPV mini quadcopters and racing drones. It’s an ever growing resource to keep you updated on all the new and exciting parts available for mini quad running 5″ and 6″ propellers.
Adjusting the tension in your Taranis TX Gimbal sticks can make a big difference to your flying. In this tutorial I will show you how to loosen/tighten the transmitter gimbals for better performance.
In this article we provide advice on how to choose hardware for an FPV setup, some useful tips about flying FPV and explain both basic, and advanced configurations of FPV systems.
