This review is of another entry into the tiny whoop category of quadcopters. An increasingly popular category because they are inexpensive, easy and just fun to fly. This entry from Oversky, like most in this class, is primarily an indoor flyer being too light to fly in much of a breeze.
I was researching for the best free / low cost flight simulator for quadcopter FPV. There are already many simulators for fixed wing and glider, and we are also seeing more and more multirotors FPV Sim’s designed for Drone Racing. Quite a few of them are even free!
The Swift has just gotten smaller – The Runcam Swift Mini. Here is some spec of the camera.
Betaflight F3 Flight controller and Quadrant 25A ESC are new products from FPVModel. In this review we will have a look at how they perform on a new mini quad build.
GoPro Session is becoming a popular HD camera to use on mini quads due to its compact size, but it’s expensive! Here I have the new Runcam 3 which is designed for FPV and supposed to be much cheaper yet maintains the same form factor.
In some situations we want to light up our quads to make them more visible, such as in races or night flying. Chroma LED driver was created as an easy solution for powering LED’s and controlling the colour.
Thinktank is a company that designs and manufactures backpacks and camera carrying cases. They have recently introduced a new line of products designed for drones. We will take a look at two of their products made specifically for FPV pilots.
In this review we are testing the new RS2205S 2300KV motor from Emax. With better magnets and design from the previous version, we’ll find out how they perform.
Here we have an interesting mini quad frame from InventorFPV.com – The Sparrow Knight R220.
This is a review of the Taranis Q X7 by Frsky. It’s just been released, and it’s the younger sibling of the Taranis X9D – probably one of the most popular radio transmitters (TX) among FPV mini quad pilots.
The X-Wing Battle drone by Propel does justice to it’s name.
It’s very close to an actual X-Wing – obviously. It’s modified from the movie to fit 4 motors that sit underneath with clear props – but when you see it there is no doubt that it’s indeed an X-Wing.
FrSky just released the new M9 Hall gimbal for Taranis X9D radio transmitters, it was a much awaited upgrade for Taranis users. In this article, we will compare the new gimbal to the stock Taranis X9D, and demonstrate the installation.
