    Eachine Wizard x220hv arms but motors wont spin

    So I was flying it yesterday and everything was alright. I didn't crash it and got some great footage. Anyway, today I took it to a park and tried to fly it. I was surprised when it armed and everything, but the motors didn't spin. I went onto betaflight and all the settings are the same...

    Destination Unknown

    The weather throughout the week was just catastrophic, only rain and clouds and hardly any sun, but we decided to fly with our FPV Race Drones anyway because there is no bad weather just the wrong equipment.

    Help! Missions Planner

    Hello, I have just built my own drone using a Pixhawk 2.4.6 from mRobotics. I did all the firmware calibrating and stuff, but I’m getting a preflight error on mission planner.

    Gremlin Review

    I was considering buying a gremlin when I saw a review on the power pack g v2 saying that it didn't work properly on the gremlin frames. I was wondering if this is still an issue? If this is still an issue is it possible to fix it?

    Hello my name is Andres, I am building a quad copter that will weigh at most 5 pounds. It will need to fly a long way ( not sure but a mile? maybe more), but I am looking for efficient motors with a low amperage take so that the battery will last longer. I was planning to use a 2300Kv...

    Winter Sunset in the Moutains before a storm comes

    that was an absolute lucky shot, first because of high wind speed weather forecast I was thinking the day will be no flying but shortly before the day end I watched some nearby webcams and I a voice in my head said lets to it :) I should hear on my inner voice more often...

    Use the gyro to control the ESCs in Betaflight

    Hi everyone, I am working on a free falling drone that could orient it self mid air using reaction wheels instead of propellers (this is my second post about it here) and I got some good advice to use a pre-made flight controller. So I just bought a Lumenier F4 AIO board with some ESCs and...

    Minor crash and now my quad gets no input.

    So I powerlooped on an extremely flat battery (stupid) and couldn't pull out, so I plopped down relatively lightly in the grass. I didn't lose telemetry (lua, voltage, ex.), but the fc is getting no sbus signal. Connections are all good. I tried a different receiver, no luck. I also tried to...
