DRONE RACING INTERNATIONAL FPV – Flight Controller Opinions
Using the Hobbywing g2 and Aikon f4 30×30. Neither on the list but both solid fcs Sean
Foxeer F722 by a long shot. Never burned one and it’s super easy to tune Rui
RevoltOSD IMO is the best FC you can get for quads Silas
OFFICIAL DJI DIGITAL FPV OWNERS GROUP – Flight Controller for DJI Air Unit Opinions
So, Ive decided for all of my quads with the DJI system to run off a separate BEC (BEC = battery elimination circuit or voltage regulator). Reason being, I suck at this. Bad. I crash a lot and go for cool cinematic shots when sometimes I should hold back. One of the things I’ve noticed during my numerous crashes is that the BEC on the FC seems to be a weak point in a crash. Crashes that the DJI air unit would have otherwise survived. I’ve had 3 different FC BECs go bad during a crash from 3 different manufacturers that have smoked an air unit. I have yet to have an external BEC go bad on me. Plus, I don’t have to worry about looking up if the FC can supply power to the air unit or not Nick
Bad experience with Mamba f405 9v going bad on multiple boards. Also it skips out badly if you crash ever JT
