GTen has an update for the UpAir One V4 that has a PX4 board fitted. this should help you fix problems with “No MAV Data” showing on your screen. The update is easy, but be 100% sure your UpAir is a V4 with a PX4 board, it will not work
Gten says that the V3 doesn’t need calibrating.. That might be true, but calibrating the compass is a good thing to do, and is very important as well in case of a RTL. If you use RTL and the compass orientation is not good you might get a fly away!
Yesterday digital images appeared of the UpAir 2. Today I want to present you the first, official photo of the UpAir 2. UpAir 2 is expected to go on sales september/october 2017 The specs are looking very promising! 3 Axis Gimbal Optical Positioning 3D + 4K Camera 1Km HD Wi-Fi
I have seen messages pop up on the internet that appear to be a new release from the Gten drone group. Sounds of a new UpAir drone were already around, there is even a link on their site. Now an image with specs appeared as well. The specs as they
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
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
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
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

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
Before you think that this is an easy job, be advised that you have to take apart the complete drone! There is no soldering required! The motor is soldered, but I am going to use connectors instead as I have heard that soldering on this board is not advisable. I
First, I want to tell that I am not being paid to promote these drones. I have picked random drones as an example to show what is possible, and also used my own as an example. I have ordered a lot at Gearbest, and therefor using their site to show
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
