    Newbie Drone build help needed

    I'd be a little leary of that first cheap no-name lipo from BG. Probly poor quality and inflated specs. Tattu lipos have gained a name for great performance and longevity and probably the most popular lipo among quadcopter pilots. That being said, i use only RDQ Series lipos from...

    2 motors spinning up when armed

    The process that WJ posted is for any ESCs, 4 in 1 or single. Never hurts to do this but seeing as you're running DShot, calibration isn't required. It's normal for motors to spin up on the bench, but the fact that it's doing it in the air and it's only 2 of the 4 motors makes me think it's a...

    Flynoceros Cerberus V2

    Next on the chopping block, just rebuilt last weekend with all new components. If you're ready to step up to hobby grade, the Cerb is very tough and one of the few Multi-GP class frames on the market: Cerb V2 frame with Color Bomb Stikit skin CLRacing F4S flight controller and Racerstar REV35 4...

    Motors / batteries question

    You hit the nail on the head when you commented that the difference between brushed and brushless. With brushed motors, you should them a break for a couple minutes before flights as they'll be a little toasty. If you're quad is using brushless motors you don't have to worry. Just switch out...

    SJRC F11 - 1200m max follow me?

    When you arm before takeoff, it records that spot as your homepoint.. So yeah, whether you're walking, in a car or boat, when you get 1200m away from that recorded homepoint, it hit's the wall. I have a DJI Spark that I can change the settings so that the drone,s home point is the transmitter...

    Hello from Oregon

    Welcome to the forum! Hopefully someone can help you with the issue on your Hubsan, unfortunately I have no experience with that quad. But I have lots of build experience, as do a few others here. So get a parts list together and lets get at 'er

    Out with the old problem, in with the new

    My next step would be to bypass the flight controller and connect your camera directly to the vtx. If you get video (which I suspect you will), at least it will narrow down the issue

    Hubsan range

    Yes, you'll always get different answers and results. This is due to the environment you're flying in. The same quad that has a range of 400 metres in an open field out in the country may only only get half the range in a park in the middle of the city due to magnetic and electrical interference

    looking for long range fpv (not racer)

    You could get 1 mile out of any 220 size race quad with the proper transmitter and receiver such as the FRSky QX7 transmitter with R9M module and R9MM or Slim+ receiver. Problem is it would be out and back real fast, as the most you're going to get with any race quad is 5 or 6 minutes on a...

    ESC Wires - To Twist Or Not To Twist??

    Should definitely help. And here's a great article on electromagnetic interference and how to properly go about reducing it. It's important to note that it's not just about twisting your wires, but how to do it properly.

    Out with the old problem, in with the new

    Just a couple things. Firstly, you didn't mention you camera wiring. The video wire on the camera should go to the video in pad on your flight controller, and video out on your flight controller goes to video in on your vtx. If this is correct, then the other thing to check is have you...

    Cannot make the One Key Return function to work

    "Binding" is simply the process of powering your transmitter and drone, then quickly moving the throttle stick up then down which binds the drone to the transmitter. This is now your RTH spot and where your drone will return to when you activate RTH. So basically your RTH spot is where you...

    Newbie seeking advice on first professional purchase

    Both have their pros and cons. For ease of use, flight duration and portability goes to the Phantom. The Yuneec is much larger and has 6 props so it's much more stable in breezy conditions. It also has a 360 degree rotating camera and a huge video screen. But it also has a larger learning...

    How to set the setting to fly

    You just need to do a simple ESC calibration. With PROPS OFF and battery unplugged: -Turn your transmitter on and put throttle stick to full -plug your battery in (don't worry, your motors won't spin up) You will hear a series of beeps, as soon as they are done, quickly drop your throttle...

    Newbie question about 5.8ghz compatible goggle
