Flight controller repair or buy a new one?

Flight controller repair of Eachine QX110 V-Tail quadcopter drone
Few months ago I received the Eachine QX110 V-Tail mini racer for review. First flights went smoothly, even after minor crashes it was flying like a new one. Courageously, I tried to do some flips in "Acro" mode and I landed upside down. Lots of smoke and fun was gone. Arrived home, I powered up the drone - one motor started...

Eachine TX01S camera review: Good range, Flexibility in mounting

Eachine TX01S VTX camera review
The Eachine TX01S camera is specially designed for mini FPV drones like the TinyWhoop where space and weight is critical. Due to its modular design, the TX01S VTX camera can be also successfully used on low profile aircraft. At first look, excepting the nice price tag, the biggest advantage of this combo camera over purchasing separately a camera and 5.8G VTX is that...

Eachine ATX03 VTX review: Cheap and lightweight

Eachine ATX0 VTX review and test
Today I will review a super light VTX module for FPV drones. Weighting only 3.5g, the Eachine ATX03 is suitable for small sized quadcopters. VTX modules are used to wirelessly transmit the camera's video signal. The most common frequency for FPV is 5.8Ghz. In order to allow the use of multiple VTXs in the same time (such as during a drone race) the frequency...

Propeller mod for Eachine QX70

Propeller mod for Eachine QX70 quadcopter
3-leaf propellers on Eachine QX70 (aka Tiny Whoop) Having some free time, I decided to mod my QX70 by replacing the stock props with Hubsan 3-leaf propellers. I got this mini FPV drone about a month ago but, due to its limited flight time and noise operation, I kept it in the box till now. Doing some research, I found out that these shortcomings...

F450 my first DIY Quadcopter

F450 my first DIY Quadcopter
F450 quadcopter with ArduCopter flight controller My son is always willing to help me in building or disassembling of any kind of stuff, so he was very enthusiast when I told him about the plan to build a quadcotper from scratch (OK, almost from scratch). His only complain was why we didn't build an octa-copter or at least a hexacopter. I...

Through the USB port the owners can update the V303 Seeker firmware but first...

Inside the JJRC H8C transmitter

Looking inside of the JJRC H8C remote controller Today I opened my JJRC H8C 2.4Ghz remote controller to find out how I can improve it. The default control range is around 80 meters and I want to extend this range adding a true 6db 2.4Ghz antenna. It was very easy to open the transmitter. I used the screwdriver that comes in the package with the JJRC H8C quadcopter. Inside...
