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 :)
Throttle timer in Taranis measures time based on throttle level. It can used to “guess” when you should land without monitoring current draw or voltage of the battery. In this tutorial I will show you how to setup Throttle Timer in Taranis TX.
The timer in Taranis TX is a useful feature we can use to keep track of how long we have flown, and help us decide when we should land. In this tutorial I will show you how to setup up a timer on a Taranis radio, that you can start, stop, pause and even reset using your arm switch.
I received these Holybro Tekko32 35A ESC a few months back but I haven’t had time to test them yet on a mini quad. Anyway I want to get it out of the way so here is an overview of these ESC’s. We will take a look at the features and build quality, and I will update this post once I have tested them.
You can use Throttle Curve to change throttle output at different throttle level. This is useful to change the sensitivity, the minimum and maximum output of the throttle stick. I will show you what you can use Throttle Curve for and some examples.
This tutorial explains the basics of quadcopter hardware, what each component does and how they connect with each other. There is a lot to cover, make sure to check out the links for more information on each quadcopter component.
Charging LiPo batteries in the field is an excellent way to let you fly for longer. I will share my field charging solution which I believe is better than buying more LiPo batteries in many aspects.
