LQ and RSSI can be confusing for first time TBS Crossfire users. I will try to explain the differences between LQ and RSSI for Crossfire. I will also show you how to set it up in Betaflight and OpenTX to monitor your link quality and range.
Minimizing the radio control latency can improve flight performance of the FPV drone, as well as giving the pilot more confidence and faster response. In this post I will explain how to reduce RC link latency as well as the considerations.
As Li-Ion cells have higher energy density than LiPo (more capacity mAh at the same weight), they make great battery for long range flying, in this post I will show you how I built a 4S 18650 Li-Ion battery.
GPS Rescue mode in Betaflight is similar to “Return to Home” on a DJI drone. It is meant to help bail you out when your video feed or radio signal gets sketchy, the quad is supposed to return to you automatically using GPS.
DJI FPV footage has an aspect ratio of 4:3, and it leaves two massive black bars on the sides of the screen on Youtube. I will show you how to create 16:9 Superview for DJI FPV footage in Davinci Resolve :)
You can build a working GoPro Hero 6 with spare parts and it might be cheaper than buying the whole camera. If you want a naked GoPro this is way more convenient as you won’t have to spend time taking the camera apart.
The Radiomaster TX16S is probably the most versatile budget radios out there right now. However one of the biggest complains has been the unremovable antenna. I modified my TX16S to have a removable antenna.
Here is information regarding “naked” GoPro Hero 8 camera – a stripped down GoPro 8 can have the weigh reduced from 126g to only 15g.
This post explains how I built my FPV display, a great tool for bench testing, and it lets others watch your flying in the field. This project requires 3D printing, some cheap components and basic soldering skills.
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.
Apart from tuning PID, you should also tune BLHeli settings on your ESC to achieve better flight performance with your FPV drone. In this article I will share my BLHeli_32 configurations that I use which give me the best results, and explain what they do.
