Flashing or updating Betaflight firmware on flight controllers is simple, in this tutorial I will show you the steps and how to troubleshoot problems during flashing.
I highly recommended the Holybro Kopis 1 as a pre-built racing drone, one year later they stepped it up with the Holybro Kopis 2 SE! Let’s check out the new features and hardware and whether it’s better than the first version.
Foxeer has just released a new FPV camera, the upgraded Predator
V2 V3! Let’s find out what the improvements are and how it compares to the older versions in terms of features and image quality.
The Foxeer Falkor is a new CMOS camera featuring “Global Wide Dynamic Range” (G-WDR). It’s a feature that offers superior performance in showing bright and dark objects clearly in the same frame.
You are probably still using F3 FC, did you know that our BLHeli ESC are going to use F3 processor too?! Around 2016, ESC’s started upgrading from 8-bit to 32-bit with the F0 processor, and it’s just become the standard in the ESC market today. And now they are upgrading again, to the faster F3. But are we even surprised? :D
The Holybro Kakute F4 and F7 flight controllers now support Ardupilot firmware for more advanced and reliable GPS capability. Features include Return to Home, GPS Way-Point and Position hold etc. In this tutorial I will show you how to flash Ardupilot firmware on the Kakute F4 and F7 FC.
This tutorial shows you how to setup Betaflight firmware for the first time. You first need download the configurator, and connect the flight controller to a computer USB port. I will then go through each necessary setting with you for your first flight.
Spoiler: the Kakute F7 AIO flight controller is pretty sweet! With Betaflight performance of F7 FC’s continues to improve, it’s safe to say that F4 is no longer the only option when it comes to choosing your next FC!
We reviewed both KISS flight controllers in the past, but finally they released an AIO (all in one) board that has integrated PDB and OSD! Interestingly this board is not manufactured by Flyduino but iFlight.
The new GoPro Hero 2018 edition is cheaper than the Hero 5 Black, but it won’t do 4K nor 2.7K, only up to 1440p. There are some other features missing too. Interestingly there are smart people out there managed to turn it into a Hero 5 Black that is capable of recording 4K videos!
This article explains what Feed-Forward is
Setpoint Weight and Transition are, and how to tune it in Betaflight. “Derivative of error and measurement” are closely related to Setpoint weight / Feedforward, and they can give you very different flight characteristics.
