Fully modded UpAir One

After a few days of testing I can finally say that all the mods I have done worked out great! The Racestar motors work perfect, the strobes are highly visible, and the colour is just awesome! Here are some pictures and video’s of the UpAir, it look great!

Reset the ESC of an UpAir One

If for whatever reason one or more motors are not performing as they should, you could try to do a ESC reset. The ESC reset does exactly what it says, it resets the ESC’s in the drone, and supplies the same amount of power to all 4 of them. If you are planning to upgrade0

I have asked Gten what motors are fitted in the UpAir, and the answer was 2212 motors 920KV That made me start to think about the next mod on my UpAir. So I have ordered some red Racestar 2212 920KV motors from Banggood (LINK HERE) And it was time to take apart the drone.. again0
