The Tinyhawk 2 Race is basically the outdoor version of the Tinyhawk 2. They share a fair amount of components. The Tinyhawk Race is a 2S, 2” toothpick style quadcopter which you should definitely fly outside.
You can also fly it on 1S, but honestly - once you tried the Race on 2S there is no going back.
BetaFPV just released a Runcam split like camera. It can be used as an FPV camera but will simultaneously also record HD footage to a micro SD card. It is intended to be mounted on a whoop, above the all in one flight-controller.
This camera is also used on BetaFPV’s new 2S, 65mm whoop, the BetaFPV 65x, but you can also buy it separately for about $65. It is currently the lightest HD camera available on the market.
I was testing a new camera and I was under the impression that the latency was quite high. Usually I am not susceptible to high latency, but this was driving me crazy. I was not sure if my mind was playing tricks on me, so the only way to be sure, is to actually measure the latency.
In this article I will tell you a bit more about my setup and why I chose to go the way I did. If you have a digital, 2 channel oscilloscope it is probably easier to do the measurements with that, but since I do not have one, I had to find a different solution.
Another version of Betaflight is getting ready for prime time - version 4.2. In this article I want to take a look at the changes and see what interesting things have been added - especially focusing on things that might be interesting for brushless whoops and micros.
To see what has been added to the newest version, I am filtering by milestone and closed PR’s in the Betaflight github repository. Since I want to focus on new features I am mainly going to focus on the following tags: RN:IMPROVEMENTS and RN:MINOR FEATURE.
In this article I want to discuss one of the most important tools you can have in this hobby - a soldering iron. There are many different soldering irons and stations from a multitude of brands that you can get.
But if you are just starting out and do not have a soldering iron yet or if you want a device that you can use at home and in the field the TS100 might be the perfect soldering iron for you: a compact device that you can power from a 12-24V power supply or directly from a LiPo battery.
I was (and still am) a big fan of the first Tinyhawk, especially the RTF kit with goggles and controller. This is how got my wife into flying quadcopters. Now there is a new, improved version available - the Tinyhawk 2.
In this article I am going to take a look at what sets it apart from its predecessor and give you a general overview of this quadcopter.
In this article I am going to compare the BetaFPV C01 Pro versus the Runcam Nano 3.
First of all, the Runcam Nano 3 is not really a Nano sized cam - it has no enclosure and no M2 mounting holes - I am not entirely sure why Runcam decided to go with this confusing naming scheme here.
Both cams are bare PCB’s with the lens attached to it - basically the same style that you know from most AIO systems, just without a VTX.
There are quite a number of different OTG FPV receivers available. Those are receivers which you can connect to your phone via USB and record your FPV feed - you phone is basically your DVR.
Your phone has to have the UVC driver enables and has to support OTG, so make sure that your phone meets those criteria (all newer android phones have at least OTG support). There are a couple of apps in the Play store that will check for you if your phone has the UVC driver enabled.
Foxeer released a new nano sized camera. After the Foxeer Predator Nano, their second nano sized interpretation of one of their micro sized cams - the Foxeer Razer Nano.
The Foxeer Razer Nano is a 1200TVL nano sized FPV cam. It weighs in at just 3.9g (without the wires). Ther Razer Nano comes in multiple different options: you can get it in PAL or NTSC and in 4:3 or 16:9.
