Some motors come with CW (clockwise) and CCW (counter clockwise) versions. The difference is the thread orientation on the prop shaft are the opposite. That means one prop nut can be fastened by rotating clockwise, and the other prop nuts needs to be rotated the other direction.
I have the Frsky D4R-II Receiver, in PPM mode, signal comes out from Channel 1 and RSSI comes out from Channel 2. You can have RSSI displayed on OSD by connecting it to the FC or OSD directly.
FPV is quickly becoming one of the most popular and unique sport all over the world. It gives every ordinary person the chance to be able to fly like a bird, and for me it’s just the most surreal and addictive experience.
I bought this electric paper plane from Hobbyking the other day just for fun. It’s a ready-to-fly kit, and seems to be a great gift for a young kid.
OSD is a great addition to Multicopter FPV flying. In this article we will look into what an OSD is and the benefit of using it, how we connect OSD to our FPV system, and finally some of the options we have around OSD products and their features.
After a quadcopter/multicopter crash, your propellers might be slightly bent even not totally snapped. As a result there might appear white crease lines around the prop hub. My advice is, Replace that propeller !
I was very excited to build this Demon EVO250 quadcopter, as this is going to be a powerful mini quad setup: running 6045 propellers on 4S.
In this article we will explore what ESC, BEC and UBEC are, look into detail how to choose ESC, what are the advantages of using UBEC, and linear VS switching.
250 size Mini Quad are popular due to small form factor, agility, fast and ease to build. Then, we also have the popular brushed micro quadcopters. They are great fun to fly indoor, but they don’t perform particularly well outdoor due to the lack of power.
Creating additional calendars and sharing it with other people, is easy and can be done in outlook client in a few steps. You can even manage permissions which I will show you at the end of the post.
Many mini quad frames come with built-in PDB (power distribution board) bottom plates, which saves quadcopter builders a lot of time and troubles. ESC’s, Battery connector, even your FPV system can be soldered directly on to the PDB, that keeps the use of wires to the minimal. This not only reduces weight but also makes a super clean build.
