Forum Highlights #5 – Betaflight filter adjustment, why ESC signal ground, how to keep old cleanflight GUI, why test new components and more

In the latest “IntoFPV forum highlights” we discussed how to adjust betaflight filters, why we use ESC signal ground, how to keep the old version of Cleanflight chrome app, how to test new components before a build, and what everyone’s the favorite part of the hobby is.

What are these forum highlights?

IntoFPV forum is one of my favorite places to share and discuss multirotor and FPV related stuff. IntoFPV is getting more and more popular, some valuable and interesting threads/posts are easily buried in the ever growing discussion. So I decided to share some of the “gems” here to help our readers get to know more about what’s going on in the FPV hobby, and at the same time promoting our forum.
