    how to connect a flysky FS-i6 to Skyzone 02X goggles for headtracking or how to use headtracking at all?

    hello, I want to buy a Skyzone 02X for Christmas and already have a pan and tilt gimbals. The skyzone has a ppm signal out cable in for of a PS2 connector... So can I just plug it in to my transmitter and assign a channel or so (I don't know how to do the channel stuff so I would appreciate it...

    OSD/GPS with home arrow WITHOUT a flight computer?

    Hey all, I just want to fly around manually with a pretty long range. That means I'll need some indicator for which way "home" is. I don't really want to go through all the hassle of learning/wiring/configuring a flight computer, is there a way to accomplish OSD/GPS for FPV without a FC?

    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...

    FPV Drone Made Of Cardboard

    Hi everybody, I'm a long time watcher of FliteTest, but this is my first time posting here. I wanted to share a project I recently completed - building an FPV freestyle/racing quad from cardboard and epoxy resin. I was very inspired by the FliteTest DIY philosophy and wanted to bring that vibe...

    First design - Sub 250g FPV Wing

    I've built quite a few FT models, RcPowers, various designs from rcgroups, etc. However, other then some tweaking and modifying I've never done my own design. Sub 250g matters depending where you live. Where I live being under 250g means no registration, no license, no logbook of all flights...

    DJI Digital FPV

    Hey guys, I've been thinking about getting into FPV this year ever since I started building foamies. I know that FPV is its own animal and there seems to be a bit of gear tribalism at play on forums, especially eschewing companies like DJI since they have not traditionally been a part of the DIY...

    FT Goblin which flew?

    So I finally got the editing done for this video. I thought I'd share it here for you guys to see. Slight disclaimer I forgot to put in the part where I actually put the googles on my head so I will have that video coming up in the next week as I am currently working on it. If you wouldn't...

    Mini talon wing meets twin boom

    Not really a build thread as I didn't take any pictures. I just wanted to show someone before it self destructs. After crashing my xuav mini talon (definitely not a beginner plane as I discovered) I found Flite test. I haven't even looked at the Mini talon since, so I decided to pinch its wings...

    A bit of Porch Flying

    Well it doesn't compare to the freestyle flying that you see around the forums. It's just a bit of fun on a lovely sunny evening to sit on the porch and fly my FT Gremlin and get some aerial views of my wife's lovely garden... and please no supercilious comments about the fact I am flying in...

    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.

    Getting into FPV, and some tips from a Newbie!

    Hey folks! I've recently (a few days ago, maybe a week) gotten into flying FPV, and oh boy is it nice. I've put together a short video with some of my experiences with getting into FPV, and I'm also talking about some tips for newbies. The plane is based on an FT Explorer, but with 20cm...

    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...

    Fpv camera issue

    Hey so I recently built a mini whoop drone and got the fat shark recon v2 goggles for fpv. I got 2 cameras and they both worked great. After flying my drone around a while and crashing it quite a bit the Fpv footage was getting worse and I noticed the antenna on the drones camera was broken. And...

What about the build should I look out for as I build. pitfalls or improvements that are needed or advice like a don't put the servos in the fuselage or something. Do you recommend landing gear. I plan...

    Cheap Fatshark Goggles

    Recently I have been flying, and crashing, my tiny whoop around, and have been enjoying viewing it on my EACHINE EV800. I wanted to both be able to record and to have a lighter more compact goggle (something like a Dominator v3) but have trouble getting over the hurtle of how expensive Fatshark...

    DiA Tiny Whing - the minimalistic, easy build and fly micro wing 1S/2S

    Hello guys! I like flying wings. And I like minimalism and small scale. One day my friend got me to try small AD/HD Delta wing, with a 40cm wingspan. I loved it. But still had feeling to do some more minimalistic. As I like FPVWRA Spec class racing wings and tiny whoop quads, got some...

    FPV Dogfight with Head-tracker in a Spitfire... a Journey to get there

    Though there are many FPV flyers, I am surprised that very few of them have taken an interest in flying from the cockpit of a scale plane with head-tracking to imitate the experience of flying a real airplane (sans G forces). Flying from onboard FPV perspective makes some challenges that were...

    Spent two weeks on improving my Video edit skills and made a little Race Drone Edit

    The last three weeks the weather here was really bad, so sadly no flying so I used the grounded time to watch over 100hours of video edit tutorials and put together this little clip it is a cinematic edit (only 24fps) cinema bars and so on, in a Race drone Edit out of my footage from the last...
