F1, F3, F4 and F7 are the different processors in flight controllers. This article explains the differences between these MCU, the advantages and disadvantages and help you decide which FC suits you best.
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!
Some people love listening to motor noise during flight because it makes them feel more connected to the quadcopter. This tutorial will explain the different ways of getting audio for FPV, and discuss other benefits of doing so.
Lipo battery balance plug can sometimes be damaged by spinning propellers in flight. it’s extremely unsafe to use this LiPo with a broken balance lead as it can short itself easily and cause fire. In this article I will show you how I fixed mine.
We get many requests to recommend mini quad parts, but It’s impossible for someone to review every product in this hobby. We have created these “Top 5 Best” lists to keep the community informed of the latest and most recommended mini quad frames in the hobby.
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.
Lipo batteries degrade over time, sometimes this degradation results in dead cells. It seems to be a waste to throw the whole pack away because other cells might still be working. In this post we will show you how to make a working LiPo by combining the good cells from multiple damaged/defective batteries.
RSSI is a measurement of how good the radio signal is between your RC transmitter and receiver. It stands for Received Signal Strength Indication, and is an important safety feature. It helps avoid loss of radio signal, which could lead to unexpected crashes, damage to your quadcopter and other people’s properties.
The inevitable question for RC hobbyists is how to get rid of old or damaged LiPo (Lithium polymer battery). There are tons of videos online showing how dangerous LiPo batteries can be if not handled correctly, causing explosions and fire. In this guide we will show you how to dispose damaged and old 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.
