With the next version of betaflight 3.4 just around the corner (expected release date of 1st July 2018), this is a quick post to highlight some of the best new changes you can expect to see and use!
This is short guide that takes you through the bare essentials of setting up any quadcopter (i.e. any flight controller) with BetaFlight as quickly as possible. To reiterate, we’re just going over the basics – that means no fancy PID tuning or optional extras like setting up LED’s!
When it comes to selecting a receiver module for your FPV goggles, the usual recommendation is to use the True-D or LaForge modules – they offer great performance for a reasonable price. On the budget end you can pick up a Pro58 module from Eachine for much less money (about 1/3 the cost), which is […]
Like many, I have been a big fan of Emax motors. The first game-changer was the RS2205 motor, also known as red bottom motors. When they were released they quickly became the default motor to use on any 5 inch FPV quadcoper build. They offered insane performance at the time, and cost less than many […]
New laws regarding how and where we can fly drones going to come into effect on 30th July 2018.

Since 3DR (used to be the official manufacturer of pixhawk boards) have shifted their focus to purely software, there have been a couple of variations on the […]
Fatshark is known for making the best FPV goggles, and although many others have tried to compete, fatshark still remain on top. The recently released HD3 Core has proven to be very popular with great features at a more affordable price compared to the regular HD3 goggles. More recently Fatshark has also released their next […]
If you asked, just about everyone (including us) would suggest a beginner start with the Wizard X220 from Eachine. The first wizard offers a great balance between performance and price. The Wizard X220S added some new components, giving the S version more performance, but at a higher cost. Now it is about 6 months later and […]
Gearbest have been selling their Furibee FPV quadcopters for a while, and it has generaly been well received. The main concern that many people had with this quadcopter is the poor reception from the VTX unit.
