HGLRC is taking a different approach at the “toothpick” style ultra-light micro quad. They are using bigger motors with much lower KV and pair with heavier triblade props. I can’t wait to try this out! Spoiler: it’s a freestyle beast! :D
I recently tested some more 6S LiPo batteries in 2019 for racing drones and mini quads, comparing their performance including discharge rate (voltage sag), and actual capacity.
Frsky released a new Taranis X9D+ 2019 radio! It has the same classic X9D+ shell with upgraded hardware and additional features. But is it as good as the original, and should you upgrade? Let’s find out!
Here is an overview of some of the best Tiny Whoops we have right now in the market. When talking about Tiny Whoops we generally mean those tiny little FPV drones that have ducts around the propellers. They are tons of fun to fly in the house especially on rainy days and winter.
In this ImmersionRC Rapidfire module review, we will go over the features and take a closer look at the build quality. We will also test it against other popular FPV Goggles receiver module for video quality and performance.
In this article we will compare the best simulators for FPV Drone Racing. Quadcopter simulators have been around for decades, but only recently we’ve begun to see decent options designed specifically for drone racing and FPV freestyle flying, some of which are even free!
I designed some 3D printed parts for the Martian II mini quad frame. They are not going to make you fly faster, but definitely will make building and repairing more enjoyable!
Cinewhoops (cinematic tiny whoops) are getting extremely popular recently, every manufacturers are jumping into it. I will be checking out a few popular options in the market. The first one is going to be the BetaFPV 85X HD.
There are many transmitter options available for mini quads. While many would recommend a high end transmitter, beginners might choose to save a bit of cash on selecting a TX. This is completely understandable when you don’t know if the hobby is really for you, and this is where the FlySky range comes in.
The Holybro Tekko32 F3 65A ESC is probably by far one of the most premium ESC on the FPV market for 4S and 6S setup. It features “Metal Capped” MOSFET’s that have superior cooling ability, with an incredible 65A continuous current rating.
The Strix Screech 5″ freestyle frame is a great value option developed by ReadymadeRC. I am still finding it hard to believe you can get a frame of this quality at such a low price.
Here are some coupons from all major online RC shops, and good deals for FPV products. Feel free to bookmark this page as it will get updated frequently.
