SMA, RP-SMA, MMCX and U.FL are the three types of connectors widely used in FPV transmitters, receivers and antennas. This guide explains the differences to help you avoid getting incompatible equipment. The gender of SMA and RP-SMA connectors are just as confusing.
NTSC and PAL are two video encoding system. For FPV cameras, the main differences are in the frame rate per second and resolution between the two.
There are many AIO FPV setup out there that includes both camera and VTX. Today we are testing the Eachine EF-01.
In this post we are testing some high quality, hand made antennas from a maker in Germany. They are made for racing mini quads and crashes, and offers tuning to user preferred frequency.
The DYS Lightening X220 is a neat ARTF package. It comes with pretty much everything you need to start flying FPV. In this review we will discuss the pros and cons about this racing mini quad.
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?
Because of the lack of suitable radio receiver (always out of stock), my brushed micro quadcopter build with the Lulfro FC was left unfinished in my spare box. But finally I found a good RX alternative that fits perfectly in a micro quad, and here I share how it was completed.
Diversity video receiver is becoming popular for FPV, and Quanum recently released their first diversity receiver for 5.8Ghz which we tested this week.
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.
Many people have asked how I overlay sticks movement onto my FPV videos, so in this short tutorial I will show you how I do it.
Today we will be reviewing something very special, it’s our first 180mm Mini Quad Frame from XElitesDrones.com! 180 class mini quad are tiny yet can be pretty powerful, which are good for outdoor and indoor flying. This review is just a sneak peek of the XElites 180. The frame is not on the market yet.

Hi all – here’s my entry for the build contest log; my first 250 size racing quad! I’ve been watching videos of 250 FPV racing, rolling and flipping thinking that I really need to try this! I spent far too long looking at options and finally settled for the kit at 4 props. The value for money is fantastic, I was worried it was too cheap but the reviews for the frame have been good, it’s a solid piece of kit (so far!). I was considering 4S but 3S seems pretty zippy for a first 250 build, especially if you have a high C rating. An important part of the build for me was to make sure it looked tidy, so the ESCs are hidden underneath. I was also keen to try out a Naze32 and cleanflight as I had read good things.
