SkyZone FPV video glasses/goggles (part 2)

UAV News - Mon, 2013-12-16 01:14
Now that I've had more time with the SkyZone FPV glasses I'm really starting to like them but if they make some small changes they would be truly amazing. Despite the small problems I mentioned in the review, I think these will now be my primary FPV glasses for the summer because they really do work nicely and that in-built camera is great. Stay tuned because there will be a Part 3 of this review in a few weeks, once I've had a chance to do some ongoing comparisons between the SkyZones and...

Walkera QR X350, FPV-ready in 15 minutes

UAV News - Mon, 2013-12-09 00:56
It only takes 15 minutes to add an FPV under-pack to the Walkera QR X350 quadcopter and all you need are a board-camera, FPV transmitter, some coreflute and a hot-glue gun. Since I have a lot of FPV gear here to review and nowhere to fly fixed-wing FPV, I figured I'd FPV-enable the QR X350 that I'm reviewing. To start, I'm using the 600mW 32 channel 5.8GHz FPV transmittter sent by FoxTech for review and a Sony 600TVL camera sent by SurveilZone. On the receiving end will be the SkyZone FPV...

Many people will already know this stuff but there are some who may be unaware of the simple factors that affect the electrics of your RC plane. However, if you think this is too "dumbed down", please let me know. In this video I look at the relationships between voltage, current, resistance and power. You'll see how something as simple as going from a 3S to a 4S battery can cause a significant change in the power your motor has to deliver. You'll also see how using a larger prop can cause...
