If your Cleanflight or Betaflight quadcopter won’t arm, there’s a relatively short list of possible causes. I’ll take you through all the possible things that could be preventing your quadcopter from arming, so that you can find the one that’s affecting you, fix it, and get into the air!


GoolRC G90 Cheap F3 EVO Micro FPV Racing Drone Flight Test Review


This little quadcopter might be for you if you’re Looking for an inexpensive but great performing micro FPV racer. Buy the GoolRC G90 here https://goo.gl/H8knEZ (only available for Frsky)

– Great flier out of the box. Fast little quad with 8520 brushed micro.
– F3 EVO flight control board loaded with CF SPRACINGF3 1.13.0
– 800TVL 40 channel, 25 mW all in one FPV camera.
– As this is a small micro, you can safely fly this just about anywhere (even indoors).
– Probably one of the least expensive micro FPV racers that you can currently find with a configurable FCB. Likely cheaper than you can build yourself.
– Does not require FAA registration.

– Currently only available for Frsky
– Video reception was perfect on my VR01 goggles, but scratchy on the recorded video from the VRD2 goggles. The quadcopters FPV antenna was “bent” out of the box. I’m thinking that I probably should have straghtened it out 😉
– Motor leads are soldered to the FCB. Wire splicing is recommended if you need to change a motor.

Freestyle FPV Drone Tricks with Stick Overlay


Do you want more stick overlay?

I’ve been wanting to share some stick overlay footage for some time now. I know when I was starting out learning to fly, the basic tutorials tapped out when it came to advanced acro and freestyle manouvers.

I was left having to try and figure it all out on my own.

For anyone wanting to get better at freestyle, I highly recommend you focus on the relationship between your mind, what you are seeing through the FPV feed, and what angle the copter and it’s thrust is facing.

Mastering the use of inertia along with the translation of the actual angle of thrust vs your feed will drastically improve your skills. I hope that makes sense.

And as always, work on your throttle control.

Take care everyone, thanks for watching.

In this video I’ll be going over the setup process in Betalfight and the BlHeli Configurator for the Multi-Purpose FPV Quadcopter. If you’re looking for a really high-performance FPV Quad then look no further. This quadcopter packs a serious punch! The components are on par with what most Professional FPV Pilots are flying. If you are new to FPV, this quad will be perfect for a beginner pilot since it will take a beating against whatever you throw it at. At the same time, it’ll have all the performance you need when progressing as a pilot.

This is the exact same quadcopter that Jack will be using for all How-to videos on the channel. Jack will also be racing this quadcopter at National and International events.

I wanted to do a follow up of what I have learned from testing out waterproofing techniques over the last month and what I am finding to work the best. Plus I really just wanted an extreme test to really put these products to the test. Stick around to find out just how they stack up.
