In order to activate flight modes and features in Betaflight you need to setup the switches in your radio first. I will show you how to do it in OpenTX which is the same system used in the Frsky Taranis X9D, QX7, Horus X10, X-Lite, and Flysky Nirvana.
One great thing about the Skyzone SKY03 FPV goggles is that you can update the firmware easily for bug fixes and new features. In this post I will show you how to flash firmware on the SKY03 goggle.
In this article we will compare the best quadcopter simulators for FPV. Drone simulators have been around for decades, but only recently we’ve begun to see more options designed specifically for drone racing and FPV freestyle, some of which are even free!
Multirotors (aka drones) are fueled by LiPo battery, they are able to store and deliver large amount of power. In this guide you will learn how to read the spec of LiPo for your mini quadcopter, and how to choose and handle them safely.
This tutorial shows you how to backup and restore Betaflight settings. It’s important to always back up your Betaflight config before updating FC firmware because it can erase your previous settings.
Flashing or updating Betaflight firmware on flight controllers is simple, in this tutorial I will show you the steps and how to troubleshoot problems during flashing.
This tutorial shows you how to setup Betaflight firmware for the first time. You first need download the configurator, and connect the flight controller to a computer USB port. I will then go through each necessary setting with you for your first flight.
Buzzers with built-in battery can help locate your crashed RC model even after the main battery is ejected or dead. We will compare a few popular options to find out which is the best for you.
In this tutorial I will show you how to check the Betaflight firmware target for your flight controller. Different FC might use different Betaflight firmware targets. if you flash the wrong firmware to your FC, you could “brick” the board and unable to connect or flash it again.
I sometimes rush to fly my quadcopters right after I finish building them. Unfortunately there were times the drone didn’t take off as expected due to mis-configuration. I even had magic smoke a few times because of faulty parts and short circuits.
Learning my lessons the hard way, I have come up with a list of things to check every time I build a new mini quad. Hopefully this guide will help you avoid surprises when powering on for the first time, and make sure your drone is ready for a safe maiden flight.
LC filter is one of the most basic filters in electroincs, which comprises of just one inductor and one capacitor in its simplest form. This circuit is widely used by FPV hobbyists to suppress noise in power created by ESC and motors. Read More
