Aomway 1/3 camera review: CCD, 650TVL, OSD and Mic

Aomway 1/3 CCD camera review
With the Aomway 1/3 CCD 650TVL you got more than a simple camera. Its OSD allows you to monitor the elapsed flight time and battery voltage. Frankly, in case of FPV flights, these two are the most important telemetry information. It is critical to know if you have enough craft to return and land. Aomway was founded in 2011 and, as their...

Turbowing CYCLOPS 3: DVR Camera for FPV

Turbowing CYCLOPS 3 camera with DVR
Recording the journey of your FPV flights without a DVR camera like this Turbowing CYCLOPS 3 can be pain in the ass. Firstly, I used an external mini DVR which I connected to the output of my FPV display. Quality was nice but complicated to wire everything together. Later I purchased another monitor with built-in DVR, wiring problem solved...

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...

Foxeer HS1177 V2 review: Better housing, improved electronics

Foxeer HS1177 V2 FPV camera review
Foxeer's XAT600M classic FPV camera gets new skin and some extras. The upgraded Foxeer HS1177 V2 comes with metal case and wider input voltage. To be trendy, the camera is available in 3 colors (orange, blue and black). First edition of the HS1177 camera, due to its low weight and good image quality has quickly become popular among professional FPV pilots and...

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...

Foxeer Legend 3 review: 4K FPV at decent price

Foxeer Legend 3 4K camera review
While many drone camera manufacturers moved to cubic shape, Foxeer Legend 3 sees the return of the candybar form factor that Mobius debuted few years ago. Don't be afraid, the old design is paired with UHD 4K video recording which is a must have in 2017. When it comes about racing quad-copters is very hard to find a proper camera...

FrSky Taranis Q X7 transmitter review

FrSky Taranis Q X7 review
Last week I reviewed two FrSky receivers and now it's time to review the Taranis Q X7 transmitter - which is the latest and cheapest TX from FrSky. When it comes about remote controlled gadgets, FrSky is a very popular radio system among RC fanatics. They are future packed, reliable and now also affordable. When I saw the price of the Horus X12S I was totally discouraged, my wife...

FrSky receivers with PPM, CPPM and SBUS: XSR and D8

FrSky receivers: D8 and XSR
Today I will review two FrSky receivers, the mini D8 and the XSR ACCST. While the Micro Frsky D8 features PPM and SBUS, the FrSky XSR has S-Bus CPPM output. Those who are new in the field, let me say few words about radio receivers. Their main function is to interlink wirelessly the flight controller with the transmitter (remote controller). Additionally they can offer also...

Aomway HD588 Full HD FPV monitor with DVR

Aomway HD588 fpv display
Although the Aomway HD588 was announced about 1 year ago, it is still one of the most versatile FPV monitor that you can buy for its price. Generous 10" LCD display, built-in 40CH diversity and integrated DVR with playback are the features that recommend this monitor. The HD588 5.8G FPV comes with HDMI input which allows to be used together with DJI's...

Eachine DVR03 review: Camera, VTX, Antenna and DVR

Eachine DVR03 FPV camera with integrated DVR (video recorder) At first impression, adding video recording feature to a FPV camera sounds very good. Using the Eachine DVR03 camera you will not need any additional device to capture the journey of your flight. Yes, this is great, but think about you crash on a river and your videos are gone. Over the last year...

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...
