You can prolong the life of electronics in a quadcopter with waterproofing, the most common method is Conformal coating. It helps prevent components from moisture and chemical damage when flying in extreme conditions.
Just a quick post to document the differences between 30-Core and 60-Core servo cables.
Not getting enough FPV range on 5.8GHz? This guide will explain the many aspects of using 1.2GHz – 1.3GHz video transmitters (VTX) and receivers (VRX) to get longer range. It will take you through selecting gears and some tips for optimal performance.
There are settings you can play with in BLHeli_32 configurator to achieve better flight performance on mini quad. In this article I want to share my configurations in BLHeli_32 that have given me the best result.
It’s frustrating, but not uncommon that quadcopter flips over when trying to take off. Usually, the issue is due to wrong configuration or faulty parts. In this guide I will help you troubleshoot the problem.
The Taranis X9D Plus radio transmitter takes 2S LiPo or Li-Ion battery. 18650 Li-Ion cells would have been an obvious option given the excellent capacity to weight ratio. However they don’t fit the Taranis battery compartment without some modifications.
FPort is a new Frsky receiver protocol which brings a few improvements over the existing SBUS and SmartPort Telemetry. This tutorial will explain the advantages of FPort, and how to set it up on Betaflight flight controllers for your mini quad.
This tutorial explains how to setup the R9M TX module and R9 Mini receiver in Betaflight. The R9M is a long range module that operates on 900MHz band. It’s compatible with most Frsky’s radios including the Taranis X9D-Plus, QX7 and Horus X10.
You often hear “higher gain antenna has longer range”, but don’t be fooled! Antennas doesn’t amplify radio signals, but rather just changes the radiation pattern, which is a trade-off between coverage and range. Antenna gain is a reflection of the maximum range you can get.
This tutorial explains how to install and setup TBS Crossfire in Frsky Taranis X9D Plus. I will also show you how to connect Crossfire receiver to flight controller and configure it in Betaflight. The steps should be similar in other Frsky radios running OpenTX.
In this post we will discuss the differences in frequency bands for FPV. You may want to choose one over the others due to factors such as range, cost, antenna size and regulations. There is no “best” frequency, only the one that works for your particular case.
This tutorial will show you how to make your own DIY SBUS to USB converter. This would allow you to fly FPV simulators wirelessly using any FrSky SBUS Receiver. All you need is a cheap STM32F1 development board.
