    Help! Racestar Brushless BR2205 Motor issues

    I'm having issues with my quadcopter's motors. I'm using Racestar BR 2205 brushless motors, but when I mount them to the frame and test the motors in Cleanflight, they spin slowly and make a rubbing/grinding like noise (I'll attach a video). But when I unscrew the motor from the frame and test...

    My Tarot 650 Sport Build

    I thought that I'd document the build process I went through with my Tarot quadcopter. Yes, this is the one that I had trouble getting the landing gear to retract, as well as using the AR8010T receiver. All issues have been resolved except for one minor problem: I need to calibrate the roll...

    Newbie quadcopter kit without Tx and Rx.

    I've just purchased the Flysky FS-i6 Tx/Rx combo and want a quadcopter kit to use with it, but WITHOUT Tx and Rx. Can anyone recommend a good, not too expensive ($30 - $80) kit that has everything - frame, motors, props, perhaps battery, NO FPV and NO Tx/Rx?

    I finally did it! (450mm Quad build)

    I finally got all the parts from China and around the USA to put the little hot rod together! I started out using a Naze32 Full REV6 but that turned out to be a big hassle trying to upgrade it with GPS and an autopilot. So I got a NAZA-M Lite on ebay for dirt cheap. It has everything I needed...

    Hi from South Africa everyone!
