One common issue quadcopter pilots tend to have with mini quad motors are using screws that are too long, and they can make contact with the winding/wires inside the motor.
Do you notice the start-up beeps the motor/ESC makes when you plug in the LiPo battery? It beeps even when there is no buzzer connected, and we can turn that feature into a lost model alarm.
This article explains some of the benefits of reversing your motor and propeller rotation for quadcopter and mini quad flying.
In this article we will discuss the basics of a transmitter (RC Controller) and what you should look for when buying one: price, the number of channels, modes, frequency and other features.
A visitor asked me for advice how to start building a quadcopter after flying with a RTF (pre-built) drone. The flying experience and basic understanding with RC and FPV he has had will definitely help him with this first racing mini quad build. The path he should take could be different from a complete beginner’s.
It’s possible that you can brick your flight controllers due to human error (where FC doesn’t talk to computer anymore, just timeout or says connection fail). You might still be able to fly using that FC as normal, but there is no way you can connect the board to Cleanflight or Betaflight configurator.
In this post we share some tips and tricks for building, maintaining and flying mini quad, quadcopters and drones.
In this article we will briefly explain the different flight controller firmware options available for mini quad (FPV Racing Drones). We will take a look at the background of these FC firmware, as well as what they were intended to do.
Capacitors can make your FPV video cleaner, and your mini quad fly better. But what capacitor should you get? In this article we will discuss the type of low ESR capacitors for your quadcopter.
FPV antenna is the deciding factor that determines the range and signal strength of your FPV system. This guide will explain the basics of 5.8Ghz antennas used on mini quad VTX and VRX, and hopefully it will help you choose the best FPV antenna.
Antennas for FPV can be categorized by their polarization: linear and circular. In this article we will discuss the differences between linear and circular polarized antennas.
