BetaflightF3 Flight Controller Released

http://www.fpvmodel.com/betaflightf3-flight-controller_g1231.html

BetaflightF3 is the flight controller designed to use every possible feature of betaflight. More than the last half year has been spent in development. Boris B has worked with us to go over features and design aspects to help give us insight into what betaflight users want/need.

This board features a 3A power draw giving users extra room for added attachments through uart ports. The six layer PCB is a more expensive design approach but was needed to give the ability to have a PDB that was capable of having wiring pads on both the top and bottom of the board. By using the six layer design we were able to increase the size of the pads and work around all the components all the while giving esc connections in the corners of the board rather than bunching all connections on either the top OR the bottom. Featuring a fully functioning OSD that can be configured in Betaflight this board will make configuring your OSD a breeze.

The team at betaflight have been hard at work developing DSHOT and this board is also compatible with the latest release. But we didn’t stop there, this board also features a micro adapter to accept TF cards for those of you that like to follow up your flights with reviewing black box logging…we think we know of at least one guy that will like that.

FPV Model just released the RaceGates that specially designed for FPV Racing with mini multirotors. The race gates are now available for sale at the official website of FPV Model: http://www.fpvmodel.com/fpvmodel-racegates_g972.html.

FPV Racing becomes more and more popular in recent years. The events can be found in many places. Most of the racing events are held in the woods, racing with  ZMR250 and QAV250 or other mini quads in similar sizes.  Now, with the releasing of FPVModel RaceGates, the racers have more than one choice other than to race in the woods, they can also setup the race gates and simply enjoy the racing on the park.

The FPVModel RaceGates comes with a special reflective material on the edge of the inner arch allowing the racers continued visibility throughout the night. If you like to fly after sunset, it could be a very cool choice. What about race with both FMX250, a LED mini quad, and  these RaceGates? The feeling must be very special.

The price for FPVModel Racegates is also very attractive. Only $62.99 per set, and it includes free DHL shipping!!! If you choose the 3-pc starter package and 6-pc advanced packages, you’ll save more.

The seller FPV Model also mentioned on their product page, if the MOQ allowed, the Race Gates can be customized and come with special logo printing service.ial logo printing service.

What Are Multicopters And Quadcopters?

Source: http://www.fpvmodel.com/blog/what-are-multicopters-and-quadcopters-_show30.html

Multicopters are now very popular with the FPV community. The leading companies in FPV community, like DJI, Parrot and 3D Robotics, are all manufacturing and selling multicopters.

A MULTIROTOR OR MULTICOPTER IS A ROTORCRAFT WITH MORE THAN TWO ROTORS. AN ADVANTAGE OF MULTIROTOR AIRCRAFT IS THE SIMPLERROTOR MECHANICS REQUIRED FOR FLIGHT CONTROL. BECAUSE OF THEIR HELICOPTER LIKEFLIGHT CHARACTERISTICS, MULTI-COPTERS OFFER A TOTALLY DIFFERENT EXPERIENCE TOPLANES. UNLIKE SINGLE- AND DOUBLE-ROTOR HELICOPTERS WHICH USE COMPLEX VARIABLEPITCH ROTORS WHOSE PITCH VARIES AS THE BLADE ROTATES FOR FLIGHT STABILITY ANDCONTROL, MULTIROTORS OFTEN USE FIXED-PITCH BLADES; CONTROL OF VEHICLE MOTION ISACHIEVED BY VARYING THE RELATIVE SPEED OF EACH ROTOR TO CHANGE THE THRUST AND TORQUE PRODUCED BY EACH.

The ability to slowly approach a subject,hold its position and turn on its own axis opens the airframes up to lots ofcircumstances a plane can not cater for. If you have not flown a helicopter orplane before it is probably the hardest of all disciplines to learn as abeginner. Multicopters are very varied in build, configuration and control.

Due to their ease of both construction andcontrol, multirotor aircraft are frequently used in model and radio control aircraft projects in which the names quadcopter, hexacopter and octocopterarefrequently used to refer to 4-, 6- and 8-rotor helicopters, respectively.

The Quad Copters are extremely popular. It is a multirotor helicopter that is lifted and propelled by four rotors. Quadcopters are classified asrotorcraft, as opposed to fixed-wing aircraft, because their lift is generatedby a set of rotors (vertically oriented propellers).

With 4 legs as the name suggests they require no yaw mechanism. They are available in two layouts a + configurationwith the front leading leg being straight ahead, or the much more popular andFPV friendly X configuration with the two leading legs being 45 degrees to theleft and right of the front of the platform. The platform is very stable whensetup well, it can be very acrobatic too compared to the Tri Copter. Becauseits symmetrical most pilots have different coloured front legs to back to aid orientation.It is very good at carrying a decent amount of payload, and flight times can be15 mins + at times, but 6 – 10 normally depending on weight, motor and propchoice.

Unlike most helicopters, quadcopters use 2sets of identical fixed pitched propellers; 2 clockwise (CW) and 2counter-clockwise (CCW). These use variation of RPM to control lift and torque.Control of vehicle motion is achieved by altering the rotation rate of one ormore rotor discs, thereby changing its torque load and thrust/lift characteristics.

Generally the more rotors, the more motors,the more stable and the more you can carry in weight.
