  • Issue#466: Quadcopter - Udi U842 video won't play

    Hello, I am new to this forum and new to the hobby. My daughter gave me a UDI U842 which I have flown all of four times so far. This model has a camera with a TF card. After the first flight, I plugged the card into my computer (comes with a little thumb drive style holder that plugs into a USB port) and was able to play the two videos I recorded on Windows Media Player without doing anything but hitting the play button. After viewing I copied the videos to my external hard drive because... Udi...

  • Issue#467: Quadcopter - Hmx280

    After replacing the motors on several of my toy quads I'm thinking it's time to think about getting one with brushless motors.

  • Issue#469: Quadcopter - Phantom camera performance

    It's been suggested that DJI intentionally degrades the performance of their products. This may be a marketing ploy so they can sell you the same equipment down the road as a new and better performing piece of kit. It is suggested that the pro model camera is capable of 260mbs write speed but is cropped down to a mere 40mbs leading to poor performance issues, the industry standard is 100mbs... It is suggested that DJI is deceiving it's customers... Is it true... Sounds plausible. See t...

  • Issue#470: Quadcopter - Mounting A Camera... Do I need To Balance?

    I tried to mount a GoPro to my Tarantula X6 the other day by just doing a really quick and dirty rubber band job to hold it to the body. However, when I went to take off, it basically dove to the back right and after about 3 attempts and taking off, I could never get it to take off straight up and down. I assumed there was some sort of self leveling sensor in this thing but I guess I am wrong. So, do I need to someone balance my copter after rigging up a camera? If so, can you explain how?... M...

  • Issue#472: Quadcopter - FAA On Quadcopters

    Guys, so i was roaming around and found this site Quadcopter Reviews. Saw something really interesting and i am sure many of you already know it. I thought i would summarize it for those who don't know about the FAA policy on Quadcopters. First of all, FAA doesn't differentiate between a drone or a quadcopter. All are same in their eyes and here is the current scenario: If you are in the US, you will have to register if you fly anything larger... FAA On Quadcopters...

  • Issue#474: Quadcopter - What the heck is up with my batteries or charger????

    Hello guys, I recently purchased a Tarantula X6 and hooked the battery up fresh out of the box and flew it. Then I tried to charge it and it would never charge. I then purchased a 2-pk of batteries that included a cheap 2 port charger off Amazon. I was only able to get one charge on these new batteries and then they would not charge again. Am I doing something wrong? Am I supposed to charge these before first use? Do these LIPO batteries expire and if so, could I possibly have old batteries?... ...

  • Issue#475: Quadcopter - I don't want to witness my quad lose its 2.4 control signal

    So I built a nice external receiver ground station (goggles). It came out pretty nice; simple but effective. But riddle me this: now that I (potentially)have great 5.8 range, do I need worry about my controllers 2.4 range? I don't mean interference, I just don't want to lose control of my quad while my video signal is fine. Perhaps I'm being a paranoid here because I doubt I'll even fly that far away. I'd just like to be in the know about it. Thanks for any replies...

  • Issue#479: Quadcopter - Drone Registration Labels

    Whether you agree with the FAA’s requirement to register your drone if it weighs more than 0.55 pounds (250 grams) so you can fly it outdoors for fun as a hobby this is now the law as of 12/21/2015. I am sure you don't want to face the possibility of a penalty up to $250,000 and/or imprisonment for up to three years. You can view the full rule here: www.faa.gov/news/updates/media/20151213_IFR.pdf When registering you... Drone Registration Labels...

  • Issue#550: Quadcopter - FPV Ground Station Plan

    First, I am going on 70 years of age so I don't anticipate needing a fully portable ground station. Instead I am putting together a rather heavy power user. Any suggestion or ideas before I get too far along would be appreciated. My plan is to use a case in which I have a 12 Volt to 120 volt inverter. I will have space for my laptop and will have it running Mission Planner. Mounted in the top lid will be a 17"computer monitor for FPV. The laptop processes the input and delivers it to.....

  • Issue#551: Quadcopter - DM007 quadcopter... flies it one direction no matter how much I trim

    Hi guys! Wanted to say hello at first. I bought this quadcopter to sort of get my feet wet. I can't seem to get this thing to do right. it actually tends to hover better once the battery has died a bit. when the thing is fully charged, when I go to lift off it takes off going to the left. I have trimmed it COMPLETELY over to the left and still can't get it from wanting to fly in that direction. I have torn up a bunch of props in the process because I can't get it to land properly ...
