FPV


-FPV-

F.irst P.erson V.iew

If you’re looking for a truly amazing Experience, Flying a drone using FPV is the way to go. First Person View means there is a camera with a transmitter on the drone or UAV that sends a video signal (usually 5.8ghz, 2.4ghz or 1.3ghz) to a set of goggles that you wear on your face. So you’re flying the drone as if you’re in the drone.

 

Getting Started

This page is meant as a guide to get you started. We’ll be going through everything from Props, motors, ESCs (Electronic Speed Controller) to frames and Flight controllers.

Before Diving head first into parts and training programs  and controllers and goggles, There is a very important question you have to ask yourself…

What do I want to do with my Drone?

The reason why this is so important is because it will drive all your decisions when building your drone. Every part you plan for plays an important roll in a successful flight.

  • There are so many different prop styles now that its a bit ridiculous but when your’e looking for the right props for your drone, you do have to take a few things into consideration. Here are a few things to to consider when choosing your props.

How Much does your drone weigh?

  • This is very important for your entire build but when it comes to the props it stands apart. All the different parts of the prop need to be taken into consideration. Prop Length, Pitch, material and honestly I know it sounds ludicrous but even the color of the props matter to some extent. The different color dyes used in the manufacturing process have different properties in then that allow a better or worse effect on the over all stability and strength the prop has.

 

drone, repair, uav, fpv, racing, redbull, monster energy, rockstarHow long do you want your drone to fly?

 This questions requires you to answer another question first… “What am I using my drone for?” If your’e racing, you are most definitely not going to use the same props as you would for a large heavy lift Photography drone.

  • Racing – 3″ 4″ 5″ & 6″ props
  • Photography drones – This is a much larger pool of possibilities so knowing what you want to accomplish with your uav project is very important. to generalize prop sizes, these are the different common sizes used. 10″-“25”

MOTORS

 

ESC (Electronic Speed Controller)

Flight Controller

PDB (Power Distribution Board)

OSD (On Screen Display)

 

Tx (Transmitter/Radio)

There are a number of different radio/transmitters out there but in our opinion these are the best radios for the cost. Everyone has their own opinion about the best radio to but but it will ultimately be up to you and what your’e comfortable with. When looking at radios, you also have to look at the size, quality and weight of the receiver that bind your drone to the remote.
