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...

My first flight with the Cheerson CX-20

my first flight with Cheerson cx-20
CX-20 - My first big quadcopter In past I had only the little and famous Cx-10 witch truly is a toy. When I ordered the cx-20 I was a little bit uncertain because this is a BIG quad-copter and for my budget is not a cheap one. Finnaly I conviced myself that buying this copter is the best decision to spend my money and, after...

HAKRC Storm32 cheap 3D gimbal review

HAKRC Storm32 review
Affordable Storm32 3-axis gimbal from HAKRC You can have the best quadcopter camera of the moment but, without being accompanied by a steady brushless gimbal at least like this HAKRC Storm32, is very hard to capture some nice and smooth aerial videos. According to the number of installed brushless motors, the camera gimbals can be categorized in 1, 2 or 3-axis gimbals. A 2-axis gimbal is not necessarily worst...

XK Detect X380 Downloads
XK Detect X380 Firmware, driver and ground station As I'm a XK Detect X380 owner I thought it would be very useful to gather all the important files related to this quadcopter (like:firmware, drivers and tools). I'm also planning to add to this post gimbal and FPV connection diagrams and other useful details, guides and tutorials related to the X380. I promise that I will try to...

FPV 2 axis brushless gimbal review

2D Gimbal review
The cheapest 2D brushless gimbal First of all, cheap does not necessary mean poor quality... OK, not all the time:). The popularity of the FPV 2 axis gimbal is the best proof of this fact. Lets talk a bit about what means exactly a gimbal and why we need such a device. A "Gimbal" has roughly two main functions: to keep the camera steady and to allow...
