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.
Recently Runcam added another VTX to the repertoire of Nano VTX - the Runcam TX100 Nano. This Nano VTX weighs in at just 1.5g with antenna (without wires) or 0.92g without antenna.
It can be powered from 4.5V to 5.5V. Of course this one also allows settings to be changed via Betaflight OSD - it uses the ImmersionRC Tramp protocol.
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.
