For quadcopter beginners, they need to know much knowledge about quadcopter, such as how to choose the motors, lipo batteries, frames…If a beainner want to build quadcopter, how can he do it?
Drones are awesome. They are great tools and some fun to mess around with. This post is designed to help you build a cheapish quadcopter that can get you started on your love of quadcopters. You may have seen the dpi phantom and such which cost around 1000-2000 dollars [Read More…]
I recently head a question: “I am new, I want to build a mini quadcopter, but I don’t know how to choose my battery voltage should I skip 3S and go straight for 4S? ”For many newbie, they don’t know how to choose their battery voltage, so there is a question How do newbies choose their battery voltage, 3S or 4S? I think the first step is know the Difference between a 3S and 4S Setup for Mini Quadcopter. [Read More…]
When you plan to build a mini quadcopter, how do you choose your battery voltage? 3S lipo battery or 4S lipo battery? Maybe for newbie, you don’t know the difference between 3s an 4s lipo, even though you may don’t know what’s the mean of 3S lipo and 4S lipo (you can read these articles: RC Lipo battery knowledge or The analysis of lipo battery parameters); so I wrote this article to tell you the difference between 3S and 4S for mini quadcopter.

For the past couple of years, I’ve been flying small UAS(Unmanned Aircraft Systems, or FAA-speak for drones) as a hobby, and have found the video graphy aspect fascinating. So much so, that I’ve decided to make the hobby a bit more than a hobby. Tomorrow I’ll take delivery of a Yuneec Typhoon H Pro – a six rotor photography platform with a built in 4K video/still camera, and active collision avoidance from Intel. [Read More…]
High discharge rate lipos are popular in racers, like FPV race, car race, UAV race and so on. And if you are a FPV Amateur, you want get a high speed and do some beautiful flight actions, you also need a high discharge rate, too. Because high discharge rate Lipo can provide high current electricity and powered a high speed to FPV and rc cars, so it is very important for racers. Next let’s know more about high discharge rate.

When you are build a quadcopter, propellers are the same important to the motors and lipo battery. Propellers generate thrust by spinning and moving air. The more air it can move, the more thrust it will generate. This guide will tell you some knowledge about propellers. [Read More…]

This is my Frist quadcopter FPV250 build, I have took much time on it, and I will share my quadcopter build experiences to you and teach you how to build a quadcopter by yourself. Before build a quadcopter, you’d better know some knowledge about quadcopter and prepare the materials of quadcopter. When you plan to build a quadcopter, you must have a ideal that what’s the size of you quadcopter do you want to build? [Read More…]
I think most people have meet a trouble like this: When you bought a new 5000mAh lipo battery and your drone can fly about 15-20mins, but as time goes by, you will found your drone’s flight time get shorter and shorter. Why is it so? Each battery have its life, when it use very often, its life and capacity will get small, so we need to maintain our lipo batteries. About How to maintain a battery, mainly is charge and store, there are two guides about charge and store. [Read More…]
This guide is about lipo battery is for RC beginners(if you are a Rc car, UAV, drone, Rc heli and some other Rc lovers, this article may give you some help), but if you are a old players, you can share this guide to newbie. I wrote this article mainly to tell you what’s the lipo battery and what all the numbers mean on the lipo battery. If you know these, these guide will give you some help in future, these are some basic knowledge about battery or RC. [Read More…]
When you have bought a lipo battery, you can see the battery data on your battery; such as a 5000mAh 3s 25c lipo battery, it tell me the battery’s capacity is 5000mAh, voltage is 11.1V, discharge is 25C.(if you don’t know What are these battery data mean, you can read this article: The analysis of lipo battery parameters) But in fact, are these battery data is true? In order to prove these battery data true or false, I have a battery capacity test.
Since my UP100AC charger lets me discharge & balance charge and see the total measured capacity (both from a charge or a discharge) I’ve kept notes on actual measured capacity vs. rated capacity. I just thought I would share them here. As I come across (or borrow from friends/family) more batteries I’ll update this post, obviously if you have the same type of info feel free to add to this thread! [Read More…]
