    HELP static when motors spin....

    A crash of any type or severity isn't good. A crash into soft stuff like grass is not as bad as a crash into a tree. The magic words I see are "when i give any sorta throttle or motors spin..." Whatever was shielding the camera from the electrical interference from the 'motors' is not doing it...

    Flying off on it's own......

    The colloquial term for this situation is called "a bummer". It sound like you have a heating problem in the ESC. It gets hot and it takes off on it's merry way. Check all the circuitry in the ESC to see if there is a component that is weak. With a flow of current, it may heat sufficiently to...

    To register or not to register

    I still have several CB Radios that still work. My FCC License is still viable even though I don't need one anymore. My handle is Night Stalker. I was in a CB Radio Civilian Patrol for 20 years. Once in a while I'll take out my portable CB Radio and listen to the "chatter" on Channel 19 (the...

    To register or not to register

    Back in the 1950's through the 1980's, CB RADIO was the rage. Everyone needed a FCC CB Radio License. We paid our $5.00 and got a license for 5 years. About the 1990's cell phones made their appearance and CB Radio became a novelty not a need. The CB License was no longer required mostly because...

    This looks good

    From looking at the video, he has a ducted fan to provide lift and uses compressed air jets to perform balance and directional control. Those plastic bottles can't carry enough air to do much controlling that I can see. Perhaps using compressed Freon 134A would be a better choice...

    Yes, cool, but, a lot more work to do!

    Careful flying under a surface!

    The opposite of Ground Effect? Must be Negative Ground Effect! The closer you get the a ceiling, the less air that's available and so it has an effect of a vacuum on the ceiling. Sounds good, but probably isn't right too. I looked up what the opposite of ground effect was, there was no answer...

    Mobula 7 Camera Issue After Crash

    Funny thing about crashes, they usually do irreparable damage to something. Digital Cameras all have circuit boards. The shock of impact could of damaged a component that doesn't show up in an eyeball look over. Get out the multi meter and start checking for shorts in the components. It may not...

    Hunting hogs

    An after thought... It doesn't sound much like we have a whole lot to do today!

    Hunting hogs

    Kind of an expensive way of making a BLT. My question on that is "Does the drone stop at a garden and pick up the lettuce and tomato? and, what about the Mayonnaise?".

    Hunting hogs

    So. when the drone finds the hog, what does it do? Turn it into Ham and Bacon?

    Newbie to the forum and we are being screwed

    That's a good reason for me not doing builds. I'm all thumbs anyways with the hardware, so I buy all built and ready to fly only. May be a cop out, but then at least it gets off the ground the first time.

    Tech question: how does FPV transmit so far over WiFi?

    To illustrate, the WiFi in your house has a limited range set by the device manufacturer, usually around 300 feet. WiFi is another Radio RF Source and is a double superheterodyne transmitter/receiver, like your cellphone is. It produces a transmission along the 802.11 MHz wavelength. Any device...
