For radio receiver, there are a few output signal formats. The traditional and also most common type of RX signal is the PWM and basically PWM requires 1 cable per channel. PPM is now getting more and more popular, because it can handle all 8 channels in 1 signal wire.
Recently I received the tBeacon GPS tracker for lost multicopter/plane RC models. I haven’t used this device long enough yet to make a in-depth review, so this post is more of a introductory post.
For those using Cleanflight, here are a few CLI commands that might help you improve your multicopter’s performance! Many people are running these now and having good feedback.
As 180 Size mini quads are getting more and more popular, many people ask what is the best motor for this type of small quadcopters that runs on 4 inch props.
.So yesterday I tested a few popular propellers on my favourite mini quadcopter motor, the Cobra 2204 1960KV brushless (not affiliated saying that! :D ). The propellers I tested was Gemfan 5030, 5040, 5045, 6045, and HQ 5045 Bullnose, 6045.
I recently received a DroneLab 4S 1500mah LiPo from RadioC.co.uk for review. I have flown with this battery more than 10 times now, and so far I am very pleased.
Blackbox feature in Cleanflight is useful for tuning PID, and diagnose any performance related issue you might have with your multicopter.
There have been so many reports of ESC catching fire the past 3, 4 months, it’s unreal! And I burnt an ESC yesterday, there was so much smoke and flame it was horrifying! I am trying to find out why this is happening so frequently.
It’s possible that you can brick your Naze32 flight controller due to human error (where Naze doesn’t talk to computer anymore, just timeout or says connection fail). You might still fly the multicopter as normal, but there is no way you can connect the board to Cleanflight/Baseflight configurator.
Spent one whole day building this new Catalyst Speed Addict Racing Quad! And it looks absolutely fantastic!
Wooden quadcopters are nothing new, but in my review career, the PeasantCopter is my first mini quad frame that is completely made of plywood.
Here we have the Speed Addict Racing Mini Quad frame from Catalyst Machineworks, which was only released on 3rd of August 2015. I got really excited when I knew this frame comes with a GoPro/Mobius protective cage, since I am a camera destroyer :)
