When it comes to radio receiver protocols, acronyms are often used: PWM, PPM, SBUS, DSMX etc. In this post we will explore the differences of these RC radio receiver types.
Have you seen 3D RC Helicopter flying? Do you know that quadcopters can also fly inverted in 3D, by enabling your motors to rotate in both directions? Here SeekNDFPV shows you how he turned his mini quad into a 3D Aerobatics monster.
Ben Joslin shared his project with us, where he turned his powerful computer/server PSU into a LiPo chargers power supply, which saved him a lot of money.
3D cameras for FPV have been with us for a while but the technology doesn’t seem to have stuck with people yet. Sure, 3D technology is getting popular with movies, so why aren’t people using it for 3D FPV flying?
Building a DIY CNC machine might be easier that you thought. Especially so if you are capable of building a quadcopter from scratch, it’s should be straight forward enough. Jocelyn Da Prato shares with us how he built his CNC machine at home, for cutting carbon fiber multirotor frames.
Anton from CapeFPV team shared with us how to get better and more linear throttle response, by doing ESC (BLheli) and flight controller (Cleanflight) calibration and configuration.
Hans Turpyn, a group member of Multicopter International FB Group showed me how he combined the good cells from a damaged/defective LiPo batteries, into a good working one.
In this article we will show you how to flash firmware on your Frsky receivers such as D4R-II, X4R-SB and XSR. You can get the most out of your hardware by upgrading RX firmware, there is also dedicated version designed for users that live in the EU, which we will explain why.
In this post, we will talk about how we learned from extensive testing and meet-up races, to setup and manage video transmitters and frequency channels for quadcopter racing, making it possible to allow maximum of 8 people flying at the same time.
“If the planet is 70% water why don’t people fly their quadcopters in the water?”
“Because quadcopters are not water proof ?”
Oh Well, think again.
Just a quick post on how to change bootloader on an ESC, from SimonK to BLHeli. Or if you are not sure what bootloader you have got, you can just flash it anyway to make sure.
Mischa, a group member of MI (multicopter international) kindly shared with us how he soldered a memory chip on a Naze32 Acro board.
