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...

Feiyu Tech FY MiNi3D Pro review
MiNi3D Pro 3 axis brushless gimbal for GoPro I have heard for the first time about Feiyu Tech few months ago when they announced this MiNi3D Pro 3 axis gimbal.

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...

Syma X5C repair

Syma X5C repair - motor replace Few month ago I crashed my Syma X5C in the backyard and I recovered the quadcopter only after few minutes. Unfortunately, because the motors of the quad didn’t stopped after hitting the ground, the propellers have hooked in 20cm high grass. After I removed all the grasses around the propellers and motors shafts I tried to fly again with my Syma X5C but two of the motors didn’t...

Syma X5C Battery Hack

After one of my X5C's battery died, I had two options: to order a new one (and wait for it 3-4 weeks) or hack a generic LiPo battery to work with the Syma X5c quadcopter, typically for me. I chose both. As backup plan if my battery hack will not work, I ordered a new 600mAh battery for my X5C at...

For redundancy you will need at least a hexacopter but, the best for motor or prop failsafe operations are the octacopters. In the YouTube video below you can see what happens if you lose one propeller of your quadcopter. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bsHryqnvyYA Thanks for the new quadrocopter failsafe algorithm, the aircraft can recovery after propeller or...

Syma X5C range Hack

Yesterday, finally, I had enough time to hack my Syma X5C transmitter. Why I had to make this hack risking to brick my transmitter? because I need more the 30m for a decent outdoor flight. Last week I was curios what's inside the Syma X5C transmitter and how can I extend the control, as well the flight distance. Of course, like a bad...
