You often hear “higher gain antenna has longer range”, but don’t be fooled! Antennas doesn’t amplify radio signals, but rather just changes the radiation pattern, which is a trade-off between coverage and range. Antenna gain is a reflection of the maximum range you can get.
In this post we will discuss the differences in frequency bands for FPV. You may want to choose one over the others due to factors such as range, cost, antenna size and regulations. There is no “best” frequency, only the one that works for your particular case.
Parallel charging allows you to charge multiple LiPo batteries at once using a single charger. Parallel charging is an effective way to quickly charge the amount of LiPo’s that mini quad pilots use. When you do it properly, it’s not particularly dangerous and actually brings benefits too.
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.
Christmas is coming and quadcopter (aka RC drone) is a great idea as a present for your geeky friends and family members! This article is written for those who don’t know much about drones, but want to buy one as a present. I will explain the important considerations and provide you with some recommendations in 2018.
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.
