SpinUp 2020 – FPV from a Camera Drone Users Perspective

    Welcome to the Quadcopterguide SpinUp2020 Page. Here you can find important details and info for my SpinUp 2020 presentation. SpinUp 2020 If you haven’t seen it yet be sure to check out the main SpinUp 2020 page. I was fortunate enough to partake as a Speaker for SpinUp 2020. Thanks to Kelly over at ReadySetDrone for giving me the opportunity. It was fantastic to be able to present on the same “stage” like so many other great YouTubers. My presentation “FPV from a Camera Drone Users Perspective” FPV has become a more prominent genre in the drone/quadcopter hobby recently and I thought it would be interesting to take a look at FPV from a Camera Drone Users Perspective.

Here are some interesting tidbits and some links to some of the things I talked about. Don’t forget to check out other videos regarding FPV on the channel.   Maneuverability The larger motors are of course not the only thing which makes the 7″ FPV quad more powerful and agile. Running a mich higher voltage power system onboard also helps deliver more juice to the larger motors. Mavic 2 Pro – The standard in Camera Drones 7″ FPV Quad build – Build Video Cinematic FPV Video Li-Ion battery build  – Li-Ion Build video and why you would do this   Latency For the hardcore FPV racers where every millisecond counts you will still see Analog Video technology used 100% of the time. Analog can get the latency down to 1-4ms. 0.004seconds! For everyone else out there, the DJI FPV System’s 28ms latency is perfectly fine, in my opinion.   Flight Assistance Systems When I was referencing the GPS locked hover which we get on DJI camera drones, I said that this isn’t possible with FPV quads. When saying this I was referencing the standard Betaflight powered FPV drone. Even with a GPS chip wired onboard, it will not do a perfectly still hands-off hover. There may be other flight controller firmware out there which does enable this feature. GPS-Rescue GPS Rescue if activated will actually have the quad crash land somewhere around your takeoff location. This happens if you do not regain control of the drone or you do not actively try to control the quad even if the control link has been re-established. Flight Modes on DJI Camera Drones In the video I talk about GPS Mode and ATTI mode. GPS mode is the standard if there are a minimum number of satellites locked. You...

    DJI Mavic Air 2 – Hands On Review!

    The time has come. Finally, the greatly redesigned DJI Mavic Air 2 is here. It improves on so many aspects of its predecessor, of which a few really bugged me on the original Mavic Air. If you are ready to take your content and drone-game to the next level, get excited. Today I take an in-depth look at this new drone in my DJI Mavic Air 2 – Hands-On Review! Mavic Air 2 Hands On Review DJI Mavic Air 2 Hands On Review - Detailed & In DepthWatch this video on YouTube. Check out the Hands On review above! Mavic Air 2 has officially launched. Check it out here. DJI Mavic Air 2 I have been watching the Mavic Air 2 Rumors & Leaks for a while now, excited for the moment this compact new drone from DJI will finally be revealed. The original Mavic Air was released in early 2018. In drone or quadcopter years, that was quite a while ago. If you are looking to upgrade or perhaps get your first real camera drone, this new Mavic is a worthy option. I received a Mavic Air 2 early, and have been able to put it through its paces!   My Thoughts through my testing & review When you open the box for the first time, you immediately notice the resemblance to the Mavic 2 Pro. It almost seems like a Mavic 2 Pro mini, in a way. The original Mavic Air styling was a bit different from the usual DJI drones, you either liked it or just kinda went with it. I am pleased with the size of the new quadcopter. It is more compact and lighter than the bigger brother and larger enough over the mavic mini to be less susceptible to gust while in the air. Features The new Mavic Air 2 is packed with features, some of the highlights include a new 1/2″ Sensor, 48MP RAW photos (a single file is nearly 100MB!), 4K 60fps with 120mbps video bandwidth and FINALLY OcuSync 2.0! Other key features of this new mid-range Mavic include HDR Photo, Panorama & Video, up to 34 Minute Flight Time, and Focus Track features. US & Canadian versions of the Mavic Air 2 will feature ADS-B sensors. The Mavic 2 Pro can’t even do 4K/60fps. Size & Portability The new Mavic comes in at 570 grams on the scale. The previous Mavic Air weighs 430 grams, and the bigger brother the Mavic 2 Pro weighs 907 grams. The new drone has gained a little weight, but the extra 13 minutes of rated flight time alone is worth the weight gain.  ...
