    18s capable Flight Controller non existant?

    Hi guys first time posting, I intend to use 3x128mm EDF for a drone. The motors to output the thrust i require is 18s Lipo, Im currently struggling to find a flight controller that can handle that power. Im currently reading up how to design a PCB board that can handle that power for a custom...

    A3 Pro Gyro won’t Bank left

    I’m hoping somebody has more experience than me. I’m using the A3 Pro gyro in the explorer and when I’m in auto stabilize mode I can bank left at all. I still have full rider control but I have to switch back to normal mode to bank left. When I’m in the ground ask the controls respond as they...

    Motors won't move and receiver won't connect to flight controller.

    I have been trying to finish up my first quad build. I have wired everything up according to the speedy bee f7 manual and gotten the flight controller connected in Beta flight. I have been trying to setup my receiver and ESCs/motors. Receiver I have gotten the receiver to bind with my...

    Help! Is my flight controller dead?

    So my Mamba F405 Mk2 flight controller won't connect to betaflight anymore. It was working fine the day before. When it is connected to my pc the flight controller has the correct LEDs lighting up as you would expect but then nothing happens. It's not even recognized in windows at all, as if it...

    dRehmFlight VTOL - Teensy (Arduino) Flight Controller and Stabilization

    Hi all, I'm sharing my custom flight controller code written for the Teensy 4.0 and MPU6050 IMU. The best summary I've been able to prepare thus far: "dRehmFlight VTOL is a bare-bones flight controller for hobbyists or researchers wanting to get something flying fast with the ability to...

    What's the difference between a flight controller and flight computer?

    Does the thought of building an autonomous drone overwhelm you? I've broken down some of the critical processes happening onboard and explain a bit about why you might want to keep the flight controller separate from an autonomy flight computer

    Drone parts on fixed wing

    Just wanted some ideas about using drone parts on a fixed wing. Have some old parts that could be used and I’m sure others have done the same. First just starting with a PDB and an ESC without BEC. And then maybe also adding a betaflight f3 board. What are others experience on the matter...

    Help! Need help with wiring up an FC

    After reading about this thing called a Flight Controller I was anxious to see that if I could incorporate one into my project. It can do some remarkable things like Go Home and Self Stabilization for beginners. The only problem is, it came with minimal instructions on how to wire it all up. If...

    What 'flight' controller for open water swimming?

    The idea here is to develop a device to 'flight' control a swimmer via haptic feedback. This is to solve a problem that it can be very difficult to keep on track to a distant target, such as a point on an opposite shoreline across a tidal inlet. Freestyle swimming is pretty much blind and I've...

    Receiver to flight controller issue

    Hi there! I'm new to this and have never posted on any forums before so... have mercy! I've never flown or built an fpv quad or any rc things before. I'm dying to do it though! And determined to do so. I'm building an fpv race quad, for the first time, following this guide: I'm using the...

    Arduino Scratch Build - "Screamin' Seagull II"

    Welcome to my build log for my next Arduino controlled RC scratch built airplane! Much of this project is going to be based off of work (especially in terms of software) found in my previous build log here. After my *very* successful test flight with my last Arduino plane, I've decided to...

    Help! F3 femto FC on gremlin setup

    Hey everyone, I need some help with my F3 femto flight controller on my gremlin. I first built my gremlin a couple months back and after many flights and crashes it was time for me to replace the f3 femto FC. So I ordered a hole brand new micro power pack that comes with new motors, ESCs, and f3...

    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...

    Looking For FC

    Hey guys! So I have (on accident) bought a SPRacing F3 clone board, and it is very unreliable, very... Ive been looking around the web for a cheap, but realiable, Beta-flight board. I have found a bunch, but very few support Spektrum. The one I found...

    Building first quad - am poor at soldering - recommend a PDB / FC pair or combo ?

    Greetings. Am looking to choose these two key components. Would like to do as little soldering as possible - for fear of destroying electronics with excess heat. Most online stores I have checked have a suprisingly small selection of these things. Can anyone recommend a good place to shop or...

    Naza Lite ESC/receiver

    My brother picked up parts from an engineering class at UCI. 2300KV cobra motors, props, and a naza lite flight controller. Apparently, the naza lite is powered by the PMU, so I was wondering if I get 30 amp simonk esc with BEC, can it power the FC or are all the positive wires that go in the FC...

    Missing Some Key Components

    I had a blast at the first Flite Fest in Florida. I brought my Eachine Goggles Two so I could experience my first race the right way. I loved the feeling of a 5 inch quad over my Tiny Whoops. I'm ahead of the game in that I've already got a TBS Tango, goggles, an original Chameleon frame...

    Need an FC

    Hey guys, I started with a Naze32 knockoff (bad idea) and could not get it to work no matter how hard I tried. I then got an SP racing F3 the was legit, and that fried somehow. I happened to accidentally order an SPF3 knockoff, and that worked until a bad crash. The power light wouldn't turn on...

    Total noob. Help me!!?

    I'm pretty new at building. I fried my brand new Holybro Kakute FC because I'm using a horrible soldering iron and no flux. My motors are are trash too. I just gave them to a friend. Botgrinder has been giving me advice and helping me with betaflight but I can't keep my quad in the air because...
