Antennas for FPV can be categorized by their polarization: linear and circular. In this article we will discuss the differences between linear and circular polarized antennas.
When choosing flight controllers, F1, F3, F4 and F7 pop up all the time. These are the FC processors and this article explains the differences and which one we should get.
We learned FPV flying (first person view) the hard way, crashes after crashes until we get it right. Later on I realized there are exercises beginners can do to gradually build up their skills and confidence. Also, there are also simple safety rules we should follow to avoid accidents and injury to ourselves and others.
In this article we will show you how to start and improve flying a drone in FPV (or multirotor if you prefer). If you are new to mini quad flying, make sure to check out our beginner’s guide first.
The gain of an antenna could change the radiation pattern, and it reflects what the maximum range is going to be for the FPV antenna. In this article we will discuss how antenna gain affects range, and the pro’s and con’s of high gain antennas.
AWG stands for American Wire Gauge, which is a wire gauge standard based on the diameter of the wire. The diameter of the the wire chosen for RC models and quadcopters is important. It determines how much current should go through it and can go through it safely without failing.
When it comes to choosing a video transmitter (VTX) for mini quad, the factors you need to consider shift from long range and high power to small size and bandwidth friendly. In this article we will discuss all the factors on how to choose VTX for a quadcopter.
FPV Goggles is an important part of the first-person-view experience. As FPV gets more popular with multirotors especially quadcopters, there are so many more FPV goggles options on the market, and learning the basics in this guide is going to help you decide which one to buy.
The most commonly used antenna for the 5.8Ghz FPV are onmi-directional circular polarized antennas due to the all-around radiation pattern. Helical and Patch antenna are directional antenna and they provide longer range but smaller angle of reception.
The number of mini quad flight controllers on the market can be overwhelming for beginners. This guide aims to explain some of the considerations in choosing the best flight controller for your quadcopter. I will also introduce you to some iconic and popular FC boards.
We get many requests to recommend mini quad parts, but It’s impossible for someone to review every product in this hobby. So we have created these “Top 5 Best” lists to feature some of the most recommended products by our community through polls and reviews. This time we have 5 mini quad frames that we’d like to feature in March 2017.
