ELEGOO MARS 2 PRO review: My first 3D printer

5
Elegoo Mars 2 Pro 3D printer
I think there is no drone pilot that at least once didn't need urgently a 3D printed part or accessory. No one can contest how convenient (fast and cost-effective) is to make your own camera mount in the comfort of your own garage instead of ordering on eBay. The ELEGOO MARS 2 PRO is the first-ever 3D printer I...

BetaFPV ELRS review
Starting with July 2021, BetaFPV introduced a new product line based on LoRa powered ExpressLRS radio communication. Their offer ranges from radio receivers and transmitters to flight controllers. You can opt from 2.4GHz, 915 MHZ, or 868 MHz systems according to your needs and RF local regulations. While 900MHz systems allow longer-range and better penetration (for Bando - flying...

Zhiyun Weebill 2 review
The Weebill 2 is Zhiyun's newest camera stabilization system with a distinguished design and a flip-out color LCD. With 3.3Kg (7.3 lbs) payload, it is suitable for full-frame Mirrorless cameras and DSLR cameras. In addition to 3-axis stabilization, the Weebill 2 gimbal connects to a wide range of cinema cameras and allows varying degrees of control, from start/stop recording...

Insta360 GO 2 Review: Still tiny, but more versatile

8
Insta360 GO 2 review
The Insta360 GO 2 is a tiny camera that you can mount on almost any size of FPV drone, allowing you to capture high-quality stabilized videos. Insta360 wanted to provide a super-light wearable clip-on camera that allows capturing your every day's best moments with the original GO. It fits into your pocket just like your AirPods. Combined with the...

Caddx Vista Nebula Nano kit review: Lighter but not better

3
Caddx Vista Nebula Nano review
The CaddxFPV Vista Nebula Nano is the most affordable and probably the lightest HD digital transmission system compatible with the DJI FPV goggles. With a total weight of just 24 grams, it can be installed on compact FPV drones. You can also find it in pre-build systems such as the BetaFPV Pavo30 CineWhoop. Caddx is the only company licensed by...

HGLRC RaceWhoop30 review: Fly, Crash, Repeat!

10
HGLRC RaceWhoop30
Last month I was contacted by HGLRC regarding the opportunity to review their upcoming product. RaceWhoop is a trendy concept in the France FPV community due to its power and endurance. It uses big motors and 3D printed PCTPE blade guards, perfect for bando and racing. They have so much confidence in this drone that they requested me to...

Pro battery for FIMI X8 MINI: Finally under 250g

10
FIMI MINI Pro battery review
The FIMI MINI is advertised with two types of batteries, but everyone believed that the Pro LIPO pack is just a myth. FirstQuadcopter is between the first drone blogs that test and review the FIMI X8 MINI Pro battery. We will also compare the performance of the Standard versus the Pro battery pack, of course. FIMI advertises the X8 MINI...

DJI FPV Goggles V2 review: Redefine FPV!

28
In-depth review of DJI FPV Goggles V2
Since the announcement of the second generation of DJI FPV goggles, I decided that it is time to get one and make the switch from analog to digital FPV. In my DJI FPV Goggles V2 review, I will discuss the specifications, features, compatibility, comfort in use, and what are the major differences compared to the original V1 goggles and...

MJX B16 PRO review: Best BUGS for now

13
MJX B16 PRO drone review
The MJX B16 Pro is the very first drone of its kind. Many Bugs series drones have been released with many good choices, but none of them had a 3-axis gimbal combined with EIS. Our MJX Bugs 16 PRO review covers unboxing, quick-overview, camera quality, and flight performance. As usual, we will squeeze out the maximum from this drone...

BetaFPV Toothpick F722 flight controller review

4
BetaFPV F722 review
A few weeks ago I reviewed the BetaFPV Pavo30 drone that was based on this Toothpick F722 flight controller. Due to some accident, a few of the MOSFETs on the board fried and I decided to order a new one. In a nutshell, a flight controller (aka FC) is the brain of the drone. Its central processor receives data from...
