You can use any radio transmitter (TX) to play FPV simulators wirelessly using a Betaflight flight controller, all you need is a F4 or F7 FC and a radio receiver. I will show you how to set it up in this tutorial.
When talking about radio receiver (RX) and transmitter (TX) protocols, you will surely encounter some confusing acronyms like PWM, CRSF, SBUS, DSMX, FPort etc. In this guide, I will explain all the common RC protocols and the differences between them.
There are over 100 channels in the 5.8GHz frequency spectrum between analog and digital FPV systems (DJI FPV & Shark Byte). I included all these channels in a table and plotted a diagram so you can easily look them up and choose the best possible signal for video.
I saw this interesting 1S 3-inch FPV drone using 18650 Li-Ion cell for long range, and I had to give it a try. I will share my rather unsuccessful attempt and what you can learn from my experience if you want to build this too.
Here is a list of tools and drones that I frequently use. Note that I am not sponsored by any company, I only recommend products based on my experience.
Given the amount of crashes we have with flying FPV drones, we ought to do more to protect our LiPo batteries from physical damage. In this tutorial I will show you a few ways how to add extra protection to LiPo and make them tougher.
I often get asked what motor size and KV should be used for FPV drones of certain prop size and LiPo voltage. There is no single answer but a range of options you can explore. So I made this list based on the builds I have flown and seen over the years, trying to give you an idea what sort of combinations are possible and popular.
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.
FPV Goggles offers immersive drone flying experience, it’s like sitting in the cockpit of the aircraft, hence the name FPV flying (first person view). This guide is to provide the information you need to decide on which FPV goggles best suits you.
Field of view (FOV) is an important consideration when buying FPV goggles, but FOV is not something easily comprehensible. That’s why I created this tool to help you compare screen size of goggles with different FOV side by side.
This tutorial walks you through how to setup the Radiomaster TX16S radio. I will try to explain everything you need to know how to use the TX16S for the first time, including battery, radio settings, model setup and gimbal calibrations.
Even if your motors KV are for 4S LiPo (for example 2208 2500KV), you can still put a 6S LiPo on your quad. This is a new feature in Betaflight that auto adjust motor output to compensate for the voltage difference.
