One of the main things in the miniquad world is, charging batteries. Here you can find some more advanced information about how to charge your batteries.
While flying FPV it happens once in a while that your camera gets bumped on the floor and stops recording. This results in a corrupt video file. Nothin is more frustrating than finding a ~1GB video file that won’t play, you know it’s there, but it doesn’t work! I found an app that will fix corrupt video files from the Foxeer, Xiaomi and GoPro (maybe runcam too, but i don’t have one to test). It’s free 🙂
Failsafe should be set immediately after you finish building your miniquad. Failsafe will determine what stick position will be used when your receiver stops receiving information from the transmitter, or when the connection is lost. Setting up frsky failsafe is very straight forward and should take less than a second.
To update Foxeer Legend 1 via the SD Card you will have to download the latest version of the foxeer software. It is very simple and only requires the latest firmware.
ReadyEdi from multirotor4fly is now selling his own new miniquad batteries made especially to suit our racing needs. Those 4S 70C batteries are a blast! They come in 1500mah and 1300mah and are THE best batteries I have ever flown!
My friend ReadyEdi from Multirotor4fly came up with an awesome (!!!) upgrade for the already great Puffin 210. The upgrade allows to mount the battery in the frame, between the motors – at the center of gravity, instead of on top of the frame.
You followed my miniquad parts list or bought your parts and want to put it all together now? This miniquad build instructions will cover the whole build process, starting from wiring your motors and ESCs to the PDB and hooking up your Naze32, FPV and OSD.
I see too many pilots flying miniquads they built as kits from aliexpress, eBay and some other weird places to buy miniquads from. Their miniquads are more prone to breaking because of a bad choice for a frame, cheap motors and ESCs with low performance and etc…! This Miniquad Parts List is here to battle all those crappy kits and save the newbies some money…
We all know that kv defines how fast a motor spins in relation to the voltage, or RPM = kv * v. If so, why are two 2204 2300kv motors from different brands not the same? Why is a cobra 2204 2300kv diferent from an Emax 2204 2300kv and Sunnysky 2204 2300kv?
Steven from ZTW was very kind to send a pack of 4 ZTW Black widows 2204-2300kv for me to review 🙂 In short, i found them to be great! They are nicely wound, made of good quality and are very easy to mount, making a very clean build.
