The Hive_16 from Newbeedrone is a 16x16mm all-in-one stack including FC, RX, VTX and ESC. It’s probably the smallest complete package you can get for an FPV drone right now!
I used to love AIO (all in one) flight controllers, but they can be awkward to use with 4in1 ESC. With 4in1 ESC getting more reliable and easier to work with, I have been looking for a non-AIO FC that works well. This time we are looking at the Spedix F4 FC!
The Holybro Kakute F4 and F7 flight controllers now support Ardupilot firmware for more advanced and reliable GPS capability. Features include “Return to Home”, “GPS Way-Point” and “Position hold” etc. In this tutorial I will show you how to flash Ardupilot firmware on the Kakute F4 and F7 FC.
Spoiler: the Kakute F7 AIO flight controller is pretty sweet! With Betaflight performance of F7 FC’s continues to improve, it’s safe to say that F4 is no longer the only option when it comes to choosing your next FC!
We reviewed both KISS flight controllers in the past, but finally they released an AIO (all in one) board that has integrated PDB and OSD! Interestingly this board is not manufactured by Flyduino but iFlight.
This is the first time I review products from Flycolor – the X-Tower stack. I was impressed with the performance and value of their BLHeli_S Rapter ESC’s, so I am looking forward to testing their latest offering.
There are times I wanted to configure my quadcopter using smartphone app, but I couldn’t install a bluetooth module because there isn’t a spare UART. Check out the Speedybee USB to Bluetooth adapter, an alternative to Bluetooth modules.
Rotor Riot finally released their first flight controller, the Riot Control FC! In this review we will check out the board layout, build quality, strength and weakness.
The new Omnibus Fireworks V2 flight controller covers a lot of bases and attempts to meet the many needs from pilots in flight controllers today.
It’s important to setup failsafe properly on your mini quad for maximum safety and preventing fly-away. In this tutorial I will explain what failsafe is, and how to set it up in Betaflight as well as on your Taranis TX radio transmitter and receiver.
The Runcam Camera Control Adapter converts the OSD pin on an FPV camera to a UART interface. This allows you to use the UART port on the flight controller for Camera Control without the need for additional resistor and capacitor.
