Programming the Taranis for a better Motor_stop

Posted by 1-2 Hak on

After posting my last Blog about motor_stop or not, I posted the blog to the QLD FPV gurus on facebook to get their take on the plus and minuses of setting motor_stop. As initially though this topic has a lot of controversy - with people on both camps. What I did like though was something that came a bit from left field. Most people around the mini quad circuit have heard of the infamous and famous FinalGlideAus whose amazing antics can be found on his youtube channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCuibbKUX0wT5yie0_EM0Smw The interesting setup that he uses is along the lines of a two switch setup,...

Airgate Virgin

We flew the NextFPV inaugural Airgate session today. So what's an Airgate I hear you ask... Think of RedBull plane racing and you think of those tricky cones they fly through to test skill while going as fast as you possible can through a course - now think of some carefully crafted pool noodles placed on bamboo rods so they form an arch about 2m wide and 1m high. Then fly your quads through these gates as fast as you dare while trying to keep a course. Fun...yes insanely fun - but bring plenty of Props with you because those...
