Flying Multirotors and FPV is very addictive, but with the cold winter settling in and the days growing shorter, when exactly do we have the time to fly our toys? How does flying at night sound?
Adjusting the tension in your Taranis TX Gimbal sticks can make a big difference to your flying. In this tutorial I will show you how to loosen/tighten the transmitter gimbals for better performance.
Softserial stands for “Software Serial”, which can create software emulated serial port (UART) for connecting extra devices on the flight controller, and it’s also a great solution to the inverted SmartPort on F4 FC’s.
Parallel charging allows you to charge multiple LiPo batteries at once using a single charger. Parallel charging is a more effective and faster way of charging your batteries, and it allows you to go out and fly more often, which is what this is all about.
This article explains what FC looptime is and how faster looptime might affect your quadcopter’s flight performance. We’ll also talk about gyro update frequency and ESC refresh rate which are equally important.
VTX Control is a new feature in mini quad VTX’s that allows you to change VTX settings such as channel and output power in your Betaflight OSD or using your Taranis LUA Script. VTX Control is sometimes also called “VTX Telemetry”.
tune Capacitors (caps) can make your FPV video signal cleaner, and your mini quad fly better, but what capacitor should you use? In this article we will discuss the types of low ESR capacitor, and explain why low ESR capacitors are important especially for an FPV quadcopter.
Resource Remapping is an awesome feature in Betaflight, that allows you to swap some pins around on a flight controller. Using Resource Remapping there are so much you can do, for example, to change motor ordering, relocate pins in case of ripped-off solder pads, and many more!
In this tutorial I will show you how to setup a switch on the Taranis to simply read out the voltage of the battery on your quadcopter.
There are a whole range of Frsky receivers on the market and we have rounded up the ones suitable for mini quads and micro quads in this article. We will explain the differences in spec and hopefully it can help you choose the one for your next build.
Do you notice the start-up beeps the motor/ESC makes when you plug in the LiPo battery? It beeps even when there is no buzzer (piezo beeper) connected, and we can turn that feature into a lost model alarm.
With high power motors, the flight controller can experience high frequency mechanical noise and leads to vibrations and oscillations in flight. Soft mounting is a way to isolate vibrations from getting to the gyro sensor on our flight controller.
