    Plane B-58 Hustler - Quad 70mm EDF Beast --

    This was my "quarantine build" in early 2020, and I'm so happy with how it came out! It's big, about 7ft long and 4ft span, but it actually is a fairly simple build. The fuselage is simplified, square cross section, but its presence in the air is undiminished! Details in the build thread...

    0s - no battery in Betaflight even when my battery is connected.

    I have this really weird problem where Betaflight doesn't seem to recognize that my battery is plugged in. I've tried 4 different batteries and I'm still getting the same problem. When I'm not connected via USB I can arm my motors and get them spinning with just the battery so I know I'm getting...

    HDMI Out & Building an FPV IRL Streaming Drone

    I'm new to fpv and I'm currently planning on building out a project where I need HDMI video out. What I'm finding is that most things fpv are analog with only HDMI in on goggles, unless you're going with something like lightbridge, but then you're limited to only flying dji gear right? I have a...

    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...

    Help!!! im not even sure what my problem is other than my quad falls out of the sky!

    So I can take off. But then when I go above or below mid throttle-ish, it decides to flip over. First I thought it was the gyro. Then the esc because I realized they had different versions flashed. Now I'm suspicious of one of the motors because it feels looser than the rest. But when I...
