This tutorial explains how to estimate FPV range using the dB values of your FPV equipment. Being able to calculate dB will help you understand the capability, performance and limitations of FPV components.
There are settings you can play with in BLHeli_32 configurator to achieve better flight performance of your mini quad. In this article I will share the BLHeli_32 configurations that I use which give me the best results.
I had to replace the DVR board inside my Fatshark HDO, so I thought I should document my process of opening up the plastic housing to access the electronic hardware. It’s also interesting to see the inside of a Fatshark FPV goggles :)
There are a lot of resources out there regarding PID tuning, but filtering is a topic closely related to tuning and a source of confusion for many. This article is intended to be a basic introduction to the core concepts of filtering.
This is a review of FuriousFPV’s True-D 2.4GHz Module, and . While we were testing this system, we also ran some tests against the 1.3GHz FPV setup to see how they compare in terms of performance in the same condition.
BLHeli_32 ESC firmware allows you to play music with ESC by uploading custom startup tones to each ESC. You can now form a band with the 4 motors in your quadcopter and play a cool tune when powering up your drone.
Not getting enough FPV range on 5.8GHz? This guide will explain the many aspects of using 1.2GHz – 1.3GHz video transmitters (VTX) and receivers (VRX) to get longer range. It will take you through selecting gears and some tips for optimal performance.
This tutorial will show you how to make your own DIY SBUS to USB converter. This would allow you to fly FPV simulators wirelessly using any FrSky SBUS Receiver. All you need is a cheap STM32F1 development board.
In this article I will show you how to build a 1.2GHz/1.3GHz to 5.8GHz wireless relay (repeater). It’s an ancient idea but a powerful DIY hack that can bring various benefits to your FPV experience if you are a 1.3GHz user.
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.
Inside the Taranis X9D+ and QX7, there is a built-in RF module, they too have their own firmware. In this tutorial I will show you how to update the firmware on the Taranis internal RF module.
