Powerbanks, they come in all shapes and sizes. Most of them are good enough to charge a phone, but are dead after 1 or 2 charges. I needed a better solution! I use my phone to fly with the Phantom 3, and I could hardly get 2 flights out of 1
I have bought a parallel charger board from Banggood, and it works great. I can now charge all three batteries the same time, and faster than 1 at a time as well. It is available here: https://goo.gl/aCCtN7
MJX r/c Bugs 8 review The all new Bugs 8 has landed, and I have been flying it the last couple of days, and what a load of fun it is. For this review I got the Bugs 8 with camera, screen and goggles. Standard the package comes with a
The UpAir is a great drone, but it only has a 2 axis gimbal, It would be even better when it had a 3 axis gimbal. Good news, that is possible!! Get yourself a Storm32 3 axis Gimbal (get one here if you like) And a Firefly 6S camera (Get
People streaming their flights to social media, we have all seen it on Facebook, or Youtube… This is a great way of sharing and showing what you are doing. This was already an option with a DJI drone, but there is also a way to do it with any other
you might have updated your mission planner only to find out you have lost a few functions you had before. Well, there is a way to get back all these extra functions. After opening your mission planner, but before you connect your drone you need to do the following Go
If you have modded your UpAir you can do simple things like calibration and change some flying modes. But the mod also gives you the opportunity to adjust the PID’s The PID’s control how the drone behaves on user input and influences from outside like wind. Every drone is different,
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!
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
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
The one thing we fear the most are the moments our drone seems to get a mind of it’s own, and flies to a place never to be seen again… also called a flyaway! but did you know that flyaways are 9 out of 10 times caused by pilot error?
this is probably the coolest mod you can do to your UpAir. Adding strobes makes it look a lot better. I have bought 2 strobes from FLyTron, Click here for the strobes My idea was to retrofit them in the UpAir, and replace the rear LED’s First you need to
We all know that upAir is a great drone to tune and mod, and with this mod you can make it just that little bit better. *UPDATE* this has been done by a few people I know, and the results vary a lot. Please make sure you have a SCREENSHOT
This has been tested and does not work on the PLUS model Create a new text file called TIME.TXT (use CAPS) Put the file in the ROOT of your card Open the file and type YOUR current date and time in this format: YYYY.MM.DD HH:MM:SS so it would look something
Drones4Life means drones… but when the weather is not good to fly we need to have something else to take control of our RC addiction. I have bought a powerboat, and it is so much fun! It is the SkyTech H100 powerboat. It’s fast, it’s fun, and I am so
It appears that there is a firmware update available for the UpAir One V4 camera board. This is the one that is mounted under the UpAir that has a PX4 board! You can check this by removing the battery, and look up inside the drone. It says UpAir and a
