The Skyzone SKY03O FPV goggles are my first non boxed, FPV goggles. So I am not going to compare it to Fatshark’s HDO’s or any other goggle of that style for that matter.
This is just a plain review of these goggles and what someone switching from boxed goggles might expect. I have been rocking boxed goggles for almost three years. First it was a set of DIY 3D printed ones, then I upgraded to the Quantum V2 and that is what I have been stuck with for the past two years.
Foxeer was kind enough to send me one of their new Predator Nano FPV cams. The Predator Nano is a low latency, feature packed, small FPV camera.
The Nano form-factor is 14mm wide and 14mm high and thus a perfect size for your larger brushless whoops - I would recommend to use the Nano form factor on 2S builds, 75mm and up - definitely not something for your super light 1S build. But it might be an alternative for your cuurrent Micro or even full sized FPV cam.
After the NamelessRC AIO 412T the BetaFPV Toothpick F4 AIO is the second flight-controller that was developed especially with toothpick sized builds in mind - small form factor, single, feature packed board.
Same as with the NamelessRC flight-controller, Bob Roogie (KababFPV) also helped designing this one. This is also the reason why these boards are so similar to each other - they even have the same build target.
In this article I will show you some details about this flight-controller and maybe help you decide if this one is the right one for your next build.
After releasing their first set of AIO flight-controllers, NamelessRC now released a nano sized video transmitter, the Nano400. The form factor of this VTX is very similar to the HGLRC nano, the Eachine nano or the TBS Unify Pro Nano - smaller than the nail on your thumb.
The NamelessRC Nano400 video transmitter weighs in at 1.8g with wires, antenna and heatshrink. The PCB itself weighs in at just 0.75g and the antenna at 0.55g. The VTX dimensions are 12.4mm by 12.4mm and 3.5mm at the highest spot - the antenna connector. The VTX has a u.FL connector as they all do in this form factor and comes with a linear antenna - you can change this to a circular polarized if you prefer.
A couple of weeks ago, I got wind of a new all in one flight controller catering to us brushless whoop and toothpick fanatics but not just a new flight-controller - a new company: NamelessRC or NLRC for short.
They reached out to me and asked me if I would be interested to take a closer look at their product - sure, I always like to check out new gear. So they sent me one of their NLRC AIO412 and one NLRC AIO412T flight-controllers. In this article I will show you what the differences are and maybe help you to decide which one is the right one for you. The T in AIO412T supposedly stands for “Toothpick”.
If you have read some of my articles, you know that I am a big fan of the FrSky Tararnis X-Lite - and now it got even better, with a new, upgraded version: the Taranis X-Lite Pro.
In this article I will be looking at what makes the Taranis X-Lite a great transmitter, what the cons are and how it compares to the new Pro version.
At the end of the article you will know if the Taranis X-Lite Pro is transmitter you should consider buying.
The Holybro Atlatl mini is a FPV video transmitter with MMCX antenna connector. The board measures in at just 19x16mm and 4.5mm thick - the thickest part is the MMCX connector. It weighs in at 1.6g without the antenna and 3.6g with the included linear antenna.
I picked mine up from Banggood for less than $20.
The PCB itself comes heat-shrinked and has silicone wires already attached. The wires are 10cm long and the pads are big enough to solder your own wires.
This article is about something, that I am very excited about - the EMAX tinyhawk ready to fly kit - it comes with everything you need to start flying FPV. The entry into the FPV hobby has never been easier and cheaper!
The kit comes in a sturdy carrying case, it was shipped to me in the black plastic bag with the carrying case inside - if it survived the shipping from China, it should survive any abuse you put it through.
Let’s first get a quick overview of what is in the case. The kit contains FPV goggles, a battery case for the googles with 18650 battery and a USB cable for charging. Further it contains a gamepad styled transmitter, again with 18650 battery and another USB cable for charging. Of course it also contains the star of the show, the tinyhawk itself with one battery and a USB battery charger from which you can charge six 1S high voltage batteries. The kit also contains a set of spare props, some stickers, a small screw driver, some spare screws and a quick-start manual.
