So you are new to Drone Racing (aka FPV Mini Quad / Multirotor) and wondering where to start? I created this guide to help explain the basic process of buying, building and flying a drone. I will also recommend some other great resources related to FPV mini quad throughout this tutorial.
One of the most useful features of FrSky radio would be telemetry. Telemetry is designed to transmit in-flight data from the radio receiver back to the radio transmitter. These telemetry data informs the pilot what is going on with the aircraft.
Are you having trouble flashing FC firmware? Most of the times, it could be a FC driver issue and this guide might help you fix it in a few simple steps.
What is Betaflight OSD?
Betaflight OSD (on screen display) is an integrated component/feature in Betaflight flight controllers that shows important flight data on your FPV feed, such as battery voltage, current draw and much more.
You can even use it as a menu to change your quad’s PID, rates, filters and other settings. This article will go into what Betaflight OSD can do, and how to setup it up.
Proshot is a new ESC protocol “concept” created by a RCGroup user “Ub3r”, that encodes DShot with PWM pulses. In theory there might be some benefits in using Proshot over DShot, but whether it makes a noticeable difference and overweight the downside, that’s another question.
Buzzers for quadcopter is one of the most basic hardware in the hobby, but a few beginners are still getting confused. So hopefully this article can help clarify a few things.
In this article we will show you how to flash/update firmware on your Frsky receivers such as D4R-II, X4R-SB, XSR and XM+. This is useful when you have mismatched firmware that prevents you from binding, or you might simply want to update to the latest firmware version.
For quadcopters there are several ESC protocols and firmware available, which could get confusing for beginners. In this summary we will explain the difference, a little bit of history and links to articles for more technical detail.
Are you having trouble soldering? Check your solder first! Lead solder makes soldering a lot easier, and it’s possible your issue is due to having lead-free solder (or mislabelled/fake lead solder).
In this article we will talk about the ways of how to charge LiPo batteries in the field where there is no electricity.
