New to quadcopters

by Bewaren

I am completely new to Drones and have purchased all the components I require to build it but I am running into an issue binding my FlySky FS-T6 to the receiver, I have tried binding it externally with a ESC and it works fine that way but from what I can tell the board is getting power but the receiver pins are not, unsure why this is as I can not see any visual issues but I have noticed the PDB is getting quite hot but not smoking or making any signs of it short circuiting however I am still very new to this so it may be that I am just missing something obvious. Any help would be great!

I am using a Turnigy MultiStar 30A BLHeli_32 4-In-1 Race Spec ESC W/ F4 FC, OSD & BEC (2-4S) control board, if anymore information is required feel free to ask, as I said I am quite new to drones and so may not be providing the correct information.

by dronemesh

I created a full mod to enable Flysky FS-i6 and FS-i6X to use almost any frsky module on the market from TBS crossfire to R9M and even the Multiprotocol Modules.

Check it out have a detailed video on the build process also.

I modeled up the DALRC ESC and Flight control boards for anyone needing to use as reference in their quad designs. If you have any requests for other boards let me know.

New Live Stream Channel - FirebeardFPV

by WickedFog

If anyone needs help with building quadcopters, want to see unboxing of some of the latest gear, etc - this will be the channel to watch. Headed up by one of the most knowledgeable, but as of yet unheard from electronics engineers in the hobby. We have convinced Darkbeard to come out of his electronics closet and start sharing his knowledge with the masses. I can't stress enough how much this guy knows. I have listened to him perform live help on complete builds, repairs, diagnosis, and general FPV knowledge for hours on end and it is absolutely amazing what this guy knows. Streaming LIVE right now! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kOZgE9zx1K8

Can you please help my student?

by mohern

Hi Quadcopters group!

My name is Matt O’Hern and I am a professor at the University of New Hampshire. I am contacting you, because I have a student named Courtney Shaw, who is going to be graduating later this month. Courtney is writing her honors thesis about innovation in 3D printing communities. She has been working on this topic for the last 5 or 6 months and on her behalf, I would like to ask if you could help her complete her honors thesis.

Courtney has created a short survey that focuses on designers’ experiences on Thingiverse.com. The survey is pretty short and takes about 10 minutes to complete. To support Courtney’s research and to show my gratitude to the participants, anyone who completes this survey will automatically be entered for a chance to win a $500 Amazon gift card. I expect that about 100-200 people total will participate in this research, so the odds of winning the card are not bad.

The drawing will be held on or before June 30, 2018 and the only eligibility requirements are that you must be 18 years or older and must have posted at least one digital design on Thingiverse in the past year (May 2017 and May 2018). As an additional “thank you” for participating, Courtney would also be glad to send a summary report of her research findings to anyone who wants one. There is an item on the survey that lets you choose this option if this is something you’d like to see.

Thank you very much for considering this! I would be really grateful if you could help Courtney out by taking the survey. She is a nice girl and a hard worker and this is literally the last thing she needs to do before she graduates. If you have any questions about this research, please contact us at [email protected] We’d be happy to respond and give you more information about this study.

If you are interested in participating in this research, simply use this link to access the online survey:


Thanks again!

Easy drone builds

by SavedDoughnut16

Hi, Im somewhat new to quadcopters, and I think it would be fun if I 3D printed one. But my soldering skills are severely lacking, and I don’t even own one. Does anyone know a way I could print and build a quad/drone without soldering? Thanks
