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”.
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.
The stock Taranis speaker is pretty bad in terms of sound quality. It’s sufficient for what we use it for, but if you are looking for better sound quality, especially for background music, you might find this tutorial useful.
In this tutorial I will show you how to play music with your Taranis X9D TX that can be activated with a switch. Also you can setup S1 or S2 to adjust the volume of speaker.
