Just want to share with you how I did the Taranis X9D antenna mod – replacing the original 2dB antenna with a RP-SMA pigtail, making the antenna removable so I can use a 5dB dipole antenna, or 2dB whenever I want.
Flitetest came up with the idea of turning cardboard pizza boxes into small RC wings. They kindly shared the plan of the plane and that’s what we are building today!
There are some pretty cool built-in tools in Adobe Premiere to make your FPV look way better! In this tutorial I will show you how to use Warp Stabilizer and Lens Distortion Effects on a shaky video.
GPS Rescue mode in Betaflight is similar to “Return to Home”. When you lose video or radio signal, the quad is supposed to return to you using GPS.
I was flying at this beautiful seaside spot a few days ago, but my quadcopter failsafe’d and fell into the water. This is a good case study and we can talk about what to do after getting the drone out of water.
The location of the battery affects the performance and handling of your mini quad. The LiPo battery itself is a mass, in fact it’s so heavy it can change the centre of gravity. In this article we will discuss the benefits and downsides of mounting the LiPo on top and bottom of the frame.
This article explains what Feed-Forward is
Setpoint Weight and Transition are, and how to tune it in Betaflight. “Derivative of error and measurement” are closely related to Setpoint weight / Feedforward, and they can give you very different flight characteristics.
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.
The Fatshark battery case is a convenient holder for 18650 cells. However it’s not designed for charging, and you have to take the 18650 batteries out of the case to charge them. It’s quite annoying so I decided to modify the case so that I can plug it straight into the charger for charging.
Buzzer can help you locate your crashed drone, but typically it won’t work if the battery is disconnected in the crash. Here we will show you how to build a DIY lost model alarm with its own little built-in battery.
There are settings you can play with in BLHeli_32 to achieve better performance on your mini quad. In this article I want to share the settings in BLHeli_32 configurator that have given me the best result.
