This tutorial aims to help you understand the basics of mini quad motors, which will help you choose the optimal and effective motor for your next quadcopter or racing drone build. Read More
When it comes to flying multirotors, generally there are two main flight modes we use, one is acro mode (AKA manual mode or rate mode), and the other is self level mode.
Google has recently announced to stop support for all Chrome Apps which will soon lead to the end of Betaflight configurator and a few other multirotor related apps on the platform. In this article I will show you the solution to this, where and how to download the standalone configurators for our flight controller firmware.
Winters can be hard on RC pilots and models, low temperatures can even lead to such profanity as “Nice weather for flying, but it’s too cold to go out there!” Here are a few tips and products that can help you and your quad survive those winter FPV sessions.
In this tutorial I will show you how to build an FPV mini quad (aka racing drone) from scratch. I have chosen some of the most affordable parts that have good performance, and I will also show you how to assemble this quadcopter and configure it for your first flight.
FPort is the latest RC serial protocol that brings a few improvements over the existing RX and telemetry protocols. In this article we will take a look at the advantage of FPort, and how to set it up with Betaflight flight controllers in your mini quad.
You can now adjust a lot of Betaflight settings from your Taranis TX with Betaflight using LUA script and Smart Port, including PID, rates, looptime, filters and VTX settings . In this tutorial we are going to show you how to set it up.
In this tutorial I will show you how to setup Betaflight firmware on a flight controller by going through each tab in the configurator.
I always prepare my new mini quad frames by chamfering the edge using a file or piece of sand paper, which is good for your carbon fibre frame.
ESC telemetry allows you to monitor the temperature of ESC, and the RPM of the motors. You can also monitor current usage without having a dedicated current sensor on the FC or PDB (real-time current draw and mAh consumed)
Adjusting the tension in your Taranis TX Gimbal sticks can make a big difference to your flying. In this tutorial I will show you how to loosen/tighten the transmitter gimbals for better performance.
Softserial stands for “Software Serial”, which can create software emulated serial port (UART) for connecting extra devices on the flight controller, and it’s also a great solution to the inverted SmartPort on F4 FC’s.
