After building may FT foamies, I decided to jump on the wing craze. I'm planning to run 4S & 5S, so I opted for an 1800kv 2306.

Also, I highly recommend the Chroma LED kit from RDQ. I mounted 18 LEDs along the trailing edge and they look amazing. Super easy method for tons of color and design options. Click the link below for more info.

The X4R-SB will output s.bus, so you'll plug the Recruit's white, red, black plug directly to the S, +, - pins on the X4R-SB. That's it. You don't need the additional wires on the Recruit's board.

Next, you need to map the outputs on your Taranis to AET for channels 1-3. Then set a mode switch (Stabalizer) for channel 5.

An FC isn't required for FPV. Mine has the camera (Eagle 2 Pro) directly wired to a VTX (Mach 2). I picked the Pro version, because it has a built-in OSD for voltage & flight time. However, the betaflight OSD chip built into most current boards will give you more on-screen details.

It can fly upwards of 20 minutes on a 4 cell Li-Ion battery pack and in ideal conditions it's got a range of over 4 to 5 miles. In this guide I'll walk..

With the release of the DJI FPV Drone cinematic FPV has become a lot more accessible, but you certainly don't want to crash a $750 drone! The QAV-CINE Freybott is a compact, lightweight cinematic FPV drone that can take a hit and keep going. It's a lot safer to fly indoors and around people. With a naked GoPro or the SMO 4k you can capture some great stabilized footage. In this guide I'll show you..
