I was looking for a way to hang my mini quads and FPV wings on the wall. This would save so much space and is also nice way to display my collections. Thanks to the suggestions from my Facebook group, I found the perfect solution – 3M Command Utility hooks!
I recently found an awesome power supply for the TS100 I’ve to share with you guys! When I first got the TS100, I was powering it with a 4S LiPo. The performance was okay, I wasn’t blown away by it. That’s because at 16V, you are only using 45% of the power. To get the most out of it you should really use 24V.
Sometimes when testing FPV stuff, they all require different input voltages and it can be annoying when you don’t have the right battery for the job. That’s when an adjustable voltage regulator comes in handy! I found a cheap one that might be something I’ve been looking for!
I have been asked a few times whether the TS-80 soldering iron is better than the TS-100. In this article I will give you an overview of the TS80 and how it compares to the TS100.
Field repair tools should be portable and flexible, it’s also important to find a good tool kit that covers all of our needs. I will review some of these options and share my thoughts with you which tool sets are worth spending money on.
OWLRC recently came up with a compact and affordable SWR meter that can measures 5.8GHz antennas performance, well, roughly. It has a simple UI, a bright touchscreen and powers off a 3S LiPo battery.
Too lazy to build a smoke stopper? RaceDayQuads and BengineeringLabs have you covered with their “plug and play” solid state smoke inhibitor. It gives you peace of mind when testing new mini quad builds and minimizes the chance of hardware damage due to electrical shorts.
A smoke stopper can help avoid damage when you power on a mini quad for the first time. Sometimes you might have a defective part or a short somewhere, the smoke stopper can limit the current flow and prevent “magic smoke”. In this tutorial I will show you how I build a DIY smoke stopper.
I get asked frequently what gear I use and what multirotors I fly, so here is a list of mini quad and equipment that I regularly use. Note that I am not sponsored by any companies, I only recommend products that I have good experience with.
Low quality solder makes soldering tremendously harder. If you have trouble soldering the reason is most likely to be the solder you use. If you want to have better quadcopter building experience, invest in good quality lead solder!
Loctite Threadlock is an important tool for a solid multirotor build. We use Loctite to secure threaded fasteners to avoid loosening from vibration. Here I will share some information about Thread lock and how to use it.
