What drone pilots see while they are flying, are the low latency video from analog 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.
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.
The differences between 2306 and 2207 mini quad motors are often discussed. In this article I will share my understanding and experience to help you pick a suitable motor size for your next quadcopter build.
You can configure Betaflight settings on your quad by installing a Betaflight mobile app on your iPhone, iPad, Android Phone or tablets. This is handy when you are out in the field and don’t have access to a computer. There are a few different options which we will introduce in this post.
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.
We all know bigger FOV gives you “bigger screens”, but how much bigger? In this short post we are going to find out. I also made a handy tool to let you quickly compare the FOV between two sets of goggles side by side. It’s scary what a strong cup of coffee can do to you :D
Having trouble connecting flight controller with broken USB port to Betaflight Configurator?Don’t throw away the FC just yet, you might be able to fix it easily and I will show you how.
More and more top pilots are posting cinematically edited long range FPV videos of mountain dives, flying across rivers or sweeping over villages. The sense of exploration in these videos is truly amazing, and reminds me of what got me interested in FPV in the beginning, to explore!
There are a whole range of radio receivers (RX) on the market and we have rounded up the ones suitable for mini quads and micro quads in this article. We will explain the differences in spec and hopefully it can help you choose the one for your next build.
Does ND filter on GoPro cameras actually remove jello and make your FPV videos look more cinematic? We are going to find out in this post, and I will also explain what an ND filter is, and how ND filter affect GoPro image quality.
Given the amount of crashes we have with mini quad and racing drones, we ought to do more to protect LiPo battery from physical damage. In this tutorial I will show you the different ways of adding extra protection to your LiPo batteries.
I tested some high KV motors with 6S and the result is pretty interesting. Generally it’s recommended to use low KV motors around 1700KV for 6S and 5″ propellers. But when I first heard the idea of using high KV motors on 6S I was a bit skeptical so I decided to find out for myself :)
