This tutorial explains how to calculate/estimate FPV range using the dB of your FPV equipment. Learning about this topics really help understand the capability and performance of FPV components, at least for me it was huge.
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. You may want to choose one over the others due to factors such as range, cost, antenna size and regulations. There is no “best” frequency, only the one that works for your particular case.
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.
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.
Some people love listening to motor noise during flight because it makes them feel more connected to the quadcopter. This tutorial will explain the different ways of getting audio for FPV, and discuss other benefits of doing so.
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.
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
I get asked frequently what gear I use and what multirotors I fly, so here is a list of mini quad and equipment that I regularly use. Note that I am not sponsored by any companies, I only recommend products that I have good experience with.
Today we are reviewing the GTeng T909 FPV watch with 2″ LCD screen! It’s a really cool gadget with a built-in battery and VRX, providing decent run time and range, all in this tiny package. I have been having fun mounting an FPV watch on my Taranis TX for watching other’s flying and also for testing my FPV setup.
Onboard DVR is a way to record FPV videos in the best possible quality without all the signal interference from your VTX, by installing a DVR in your mini quad or any RC model really.
