Parallel charging is an efficient way to charge multiple LiPo batteries simultaneously. Parallel charging is an effective way to quickly charge the large amount of LiPo’s that mini quad pilots use. When you do it properly, it’s quite safe.
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: 5.8GHz, 2.4GHz, 1.2-1.3GHz and 900MHz. Each of these frequencies have pro’s and con’s such as range, cost, antenna size and regulations.
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.
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.
