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
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
This is the sequence to calibrate the compass on an UpAir One Plus drone Only calibrate the compass when UPair APP or the status indicator prompt you to do so. 1-When the Status” YELLOW” shows on the APP, start the calibration. The status shows “BLUE” after successful calibration of the
As you might have read, I have been painting my drone. It was bright white, and now it’s black and blue. The batteries were still white, and since the weather is bad at the moment I thought it would be time to put some colour on them as well. First
When you have a PX4 board, you should try to use QGroundcontrol instead of Mission Planner. You can download it here Some people already found out that they don’t have an USB port inside the drone. That is right! This is the V4 UpAir One. **UPDATE It seems that the compass
If you want to calibrate your UpAir Camera (as described here) but you can’t get it done because the PID settings are too difficult, or maybe you have reset all the settings. Then I have my file right here. These are my settings, and I have spent well over an
One major concern for people that own, or want to buy an UpAir One drone is parts availability. GTen doesn’t have a great customer service, but we can manage ourselves! I want to have some parts for you right here on this page. There are more and more parts available,
Not too long ago I have written about my battery mod. I have flown the mod 2 or 3 times, and the only successful one was the first ever flight. Back then I was happy with the results, not knowing what I know now. At an event in December I
As you might have read in this post I have calibrated the gimbal of my UpAir, and the program I have used is available for download on this page, and it’s called Simple Brushless Gimbal Controller. You can only use the 2.2 b2 version on the UpAir gimbal, newer and older versions
Did you know that windsocks actually tell a lot about wind speeds? Next time you see one close to where you are flying, or if you are on your way to another great flying spot and see one of these, read them! they could help you decide to fly or
