Here is a list of useful and essential tools, spares parts you should have on hand when building your first mini quad or quadcopter. Some equipment listed are not necessary but will make building/flying multirotors much easier, more enjoyable and professional.
AWG stands for American Wire Gauge, which is a wire gauge standard based on the diameter of the wire. The diameter of the the wire chosen for RC models and quadcopters is important. It determines how much current should go through it and can go through it safely without failing.
FPV Goggles is an important part of the first-person-view experience. As FPV gets more popular with multirotors especially quadcopters, there are so many more FPV goggles options on the market, and learning the basics in this guide is going to help you decide which one to buy.
The number of mini quad flight controllers on the market can be overwhelming for beginners. This guide aims to explain some of the considerations in choosing the best flight controller for your quadcopter, FPV mini quad or racing drone.
In this post I compiled a list of parts and brands for FPV mini quadcopters, that runs 5″ or 6″ propellers (aka Racing Drones). It’s an awesome time-saver for your research of next mini quad build, and keeps you updated on all amazing parts .
This tutorial aims to help you understand the basics of quadcopter motors, which will help you choose the optimal and effective motor for your next mini quad or multirotor build. Read More
What drone pilots see while they are flying, are the low latency analog video from FPV cameras. To choose the best FPV camera for your multirotors, there are a few things to consider which we will discuss in this post.
One big confusion and misconception when it comes to FPV Cameras are the CCD and CMOS. Despite the huge amount of science and technical information behind the subject when comparing the two, we will only discuss the few basic things that matter to us as FPV hobbyists.
SMA and RP-SMA connectors are widely used in FPV transmitter and receiver systems, it’s important to understand the differences. 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.
A common question we get asked a lot is how to monitor or measure battery voltage on a quadcopter or multirotor during flight. It’s important to know your LiPo battery voltage level to avoid over-discharging them.
