MultiGP Drone Racing Community – 20×20 Flight Controller for 5″ Racing Opinion
DRONE RACING INTERNATIONAL FPV – 30×30 Flight Controller for 5″ Freestyle Opinions
The Diatone F405 are variable, went through two of them in a couple of months Jordan
Although a popular flight controller, the Mamba stuff is variable Luke
For the mamba haters. For the record I didn’t vote for it. But i will defend it. For the price you pay. You get a decent stack. Its the cheapest, and when it works, it works just as well as any other FC. Ive never had an issue with one… KISS is the ONLY FC that iv ever flown that has actually “felt smoother” than other flight controllers. And im too cheap to fly expensive parts that i fully intend on smashing to oblivion. Budget builder for life Shawn
Revolts are solid (sensitive soldering pads), FC kiss v2 solid, brain solid, pyro f4 solid Jim
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
