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.
There are settings you can play with in BLHeli_32 configurator to achieve better flight performance on mini quad. In this article I want to share my configurations in BLHeli_32 that have given me the best result.
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 or QX7, there is a built-in XJT transmitting module. In this tutorial I will show you how to update the firmware to the Taranis internal module.
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” 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.
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.
