In this article we will compare the best quadcopter simulators for FPV. Drone simulators have been around for decades, but only recently we’ve begun to see more options designed specifically for drone racing and FPV freestyle, some of which are even free!
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.
What drone pilots see while they are flying, are the low latency video from analog 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 get asked frequently what gear I use and what multirotors I fly, so here is a list of mini quad and equipment that I regularly use. Note that I am not sponsored by any companies, I only recommend products that I have good experience with.
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.
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.
This tutorial explains the differences between RC Rate, Expo, Super Rate, as well as Throttle Expo and Throttle Mid, how these settings affect the performance of a quadcopter, and some tips on how to set them up.
If you accidentally damage your 2.4GHz receiver antenna in a crash or by spinning propellers, don’t worry! You can easily fix it without buying a whole new receiver or replacement antenna. And there are considerations about the length of the antenna you should know about.
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.
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
