FPV antenna is the deciding factor that determines the range and signal strength of your FPV system. This guide will explain the basics of 5.8Ghz antennas used on mini quad VTX and VRX, and hopefully it will help you choose the best FPV antenna.
Here is a list of tools and drones that I frequently use. Note that I am not sponsored by any company, I only recommend products based on my experience.
The DJI Digital FPV System consists of: Air Unit, FPV Goggles and the optional DJI radio controller. I will skip all the specs and basic stuff which you can look up on the manual, and get straight into the user experience side of things.
FPV Goggles are an important part of the first-person-view experience. With the growing popularity of drone racing and FPV flying, there is a rapidly growing market for FPV equipment, and as such there are more and more FPV goggles released all the time. This guide is to provide the information you need to decide on which one best suits you.
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.
To create smooth and professional looking FPV videos, stabilization is essential. There are two popular methods of digital stabilization for GoPro footage, both are very easy to use and do not require heavy gimbals on your drone.
In this article I will share some tips on how to fix issues and best practices to follow to avoid FPV video problems. Interference and noise in your FPV video feed can be a major headache, and some issues with your VTX can even affect other people you are flying with.
Dedicated FPV cameras provides low latency real-time video to the drone pilots when they are flying. To choose the best FPV camera for racing drones and multirotors in general, there are a few things to consider which we will discuss in this tutorial.
Can the Fatshark Byte Frost HD FPV system challege the highly praised DJI Digital FPV system? While the Byte Frost has some great quality, there are things the DJI does better. In this review we will go through the pros and cons of the Byte Frost and how it comes to the DJI.
You often hear “higher gain antenna has longer range”, but don’t be fooled! Antennas doesn’t amplify radio signals, but rather just changes the radiation pattern, which is a trade-off between coverage and range. Antenna gain is a reflection of the maximum range you can get.
In this post we will discuss the differences in frequency bands for FPV: 5.8GHz, 2.4GHz, 1.2-1.3GHz and 900MHz. Each of these frequencies have pro’s and con’s such as range, cost, antenna size and regulations.
I’d like to re-introduce something really old, not many people know about but can be very useful and fun – the Hobbyking 3-channel video switcher. I have plans using it on an RC airplane so I bought one to see how it works.
