The number of 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. I will also introduce you to some iconic and popular FC boards.
This tutorial aims to help you understand the basics of multirotor motors and propellers, which will help you choose the suitable motor and propellers for your quadcopter build. There are some general rules you can follow, and considerations to bear in mind when choosing the optimal and effective motor and propeller combination. Read More
Parallel charging allows you to charge multiple LiPo batteries at once using a single charger. Parallel charging is also a more effective and faster way of charging your batteries.
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.
In this post I compiled a list of parts and brands for the 210-250 size mini quadcopters, that runs 5″ and 6″ propellers (AKA Racing Drones). It should save you tons of time doing research for your next mini quad build, and won’t miss any amazing parts .
NTSC and PAL are two video system standards. There are difference in frame rate per second and resolution between the two.
FPV Goggles have been around long ago since RC hobbyists flying their fixed wings and gliders. But now FPV gets even more popular with multirotors especially quadcopters, and FPV goggles is one of those things you can’t miss if you are into FPV flying.
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 level to avoid over-discharging them.
RSSI is a measurement of how good radio signal is, which stands for Received Signal Strength Indication. It’s an important safety feature to help avoid lost of radio signal, which could lead to unexpected quadcopter crashes and damage to properties.
A few people asked me what the best quadcopter is to start out with for beginners. I will share with you some good quadcopters options to start out with. If you have no RC flying experience in the past, you might find this post useful.
