I don’t review many pre-built racing drones, because I believe mini quad’s that are self built are usually better in terms of value and performance. But The Holybro Kopis 1 might have changed my mind about it.
When choosing flight controllers, the term “F1”, “F3”, “F4” and “F7” pop up all the time. These are currently the most common types of processor used in flight controllers. In this article we will look closely at each, explain the differences between them and help you decide which best suits your needs.
We will compare the best flight simulators for FPV quadcopter flying. Computer flight simulators have been around for decades, but only recently we’ve begun to see more and more sims designed specifically for drone racing and FPV freestyle, some of which are even free!
In this article we provide advice on how to choose hardware for an FPV setup, some useful tips about flying FPV and explain both basic, and advanced configurations of FPV systems.
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 and interesting mini quad frames by our community through polls.
In this article we will explain what an ESC is, and the factors that affect your choices. We will look into some of the fundamental factors that beginners should consider when buying ESC’s for a mini quad or racing drone.
Over-discharging your LiPo battery can lead to permanent battery damage, therefore it’s important to monitor your battery voltage while flying your quadcopter and know when to land. In this article we will explain how you can monitor your battery usage in a drone.
So you are new to Drone Racing (aka FPV Mini Quad / Multirotor) and wondering where to start? I created this guide to help explain the basic process of buying, building and flying a drone. I will also recommend some other great resources related to FPV mini quad throughout this tutorial.
One of the most useful features of FrSky radio would be telemetry. Telemetry is designed to transmit in-flight data from the radio receiver back to the radio transmitter. These telemetry data informs the pilot what is going on with the aircraft.
In this article we will show you how to flash/update firmware on your Frsky receivers such as D4R-II, X4R-SB, XSR and XM+. This is useful when you have mismatched firmware that prevents you from binding, or you might simply want to update to the latest firmware version.
In this post we will have a look at the differences of mini quads running 3S and 4S lipo batteries. Many who are building their first mini quad might struggle in deciding which setup is best for them, I hope this post can answer some of those questions. I will also talk about how to move from a 3S mini-quad setup to a 4S setup, as I have been asked by FPV’ers who are looking for more power and speed.
