    I’ve been spending a lot of time researching which RC quadcopter with FPV real time transmission to buy. You look like you are very passionate about the topic!

    I was looking at the Syma X5SW-1 Explorers 2 Wifi FPV 2.4G RC Quadcopter 2.0MP Camera RTF

    or the

    HT F801C WIFI FPV Real Time Transmission 2.4GHz RC Quadcopter 4CH 6 Axis Gyro Eversion Flying Headless Mode UFO with 0.4MP Camera

    the wind issues look like a problem to me. Should I be looking at a different one??

    Thanks in advance

  • Mauricio says:

    Hi, I’m a beginner …
    I saw your comment on the V666 RC groups and encouraged me to buy a V666N in Banggood. It still has not arrived.

    I really like the H8 eachine but I’m not prove advisable as I am untrained.
    What would be your recommendation for me?

    I’m from Colombia, I am using Google translator.


    • admin says:

      The H8 mini have a too fast yaw rate for beginner IMHO. I am always advised to start with a micro-size model equiped of prop guard/ You have many options: Hubsan X4, JXD 388/392, Yi Zhan X4, MJX X800, JJRC 1000A among them

  • BD350 says:

    Hello, I was wondering if you could share a model config. for the Deviation firmware for a Devo 7E to control a JJRC H8C. I have looked everywhere and can’t find one and I saw in your review that you used a 7E. Thank you very much.

  • Popis says:

    Hi, i watch your video of the qw350, and i am considering buying it. If i dont hava the cable that you show, I cant use the GPS Mode to stablize it? Does it comes with the gopro mount?
    It comes ready to fly or I need to have the cable?
    And the last thing, in that price range do you recomend another or that is good?
    I am beginer haha
    Thanks for your videos!

  • Popis says:

    If you have to decide between the qw350 or the cheerson cx-20; which you will choose? Or another alternative of no more than $ 280???

    • admin says:

      Hard to say I don’t have the CX-20 but it seems that the CX-20 is more a AP plateform while the QW350 a kind of FPV plateform for medium to high altitude. Anyway, I will install a G-2D gimbal to test its AP capacity…. I like the QW350 but it’s not an objective criteria sorry.

  • Mario Duenas says:

    Hi SeByDocKy,

    I’d like to ask for help with my Cheerson CX-30w…I used my computer to connect to the drone’s WiFi, then I opened a web browser with the dron’es IP address and saw 3 fields that I was able to edit:

    Mode: Server / Client

    O changed the mode to “client” expecting the drone to connect to my home WiFi…but it didn’t work and now I can’t see the drone’s WiFi nor I can’t change any setting on the drone.

    Do you konw how to factory reset the WiFi module??

    Thanks in advance.


    Mario D.

    • admin says:

      Really strange coz your modified parameters should impact only your Local WiFi set on your computer …. You did this change on the mobile app ?

  • Mario Duenas says:

    I used my computer to connect to the drone’s WiFi and then I changed the drone’s setting using my computer (you could also do this on your smartphone’s browser and typing: on the address bar… If all the CX-30w’s are the same, it looks like you can change the name of the WiFi for the drone but DON’T TRY THAT!) So the WiFi settings that I changed were the settings on the Drone and now my App is not finding the AP anymore.

    I already sent an e-mail to all the e-mail that appeared on teh “contact us” web page of Cheerson but none of them have responded 🙁

    Thanks for your time.

    Dear SeByDocKy,

    Your videos and RC threads were the deciding factors in my purchase of a WLtoys V686G. I’m grateful for your expertise and enjoyable presentations. It’s a lot of fun learning to fly this quad and I’m thinking of purchasing 4 more batteries in addition to the two I’m using so I can spend more time in the air. Do you have any suggestions for a reasonably priced lipo charger that will handle multiple cells? Thanks in advance, and congratulations on your fine work. PS Your English is great!

  • Alain N. says:

    Thank you for all those beautiful test 🙂
    Just some question

    You order on Bang good or other site
    1. do you have some importation Taxes in your land? how much
    2. Don’t you have problem with Importation of Remote Control of big power transmitter camera ( with telecommunication authority)
    (i believe in Belgium its not easy to receive an transmitter)
    For this reason Bang good have a European warehouse ( but not so much stock)
    On advice please
    With or Without FPV for a beginner drone (my sun 9 years old but very good and myself)
    For +- 100 € ???
    For 350 €-400€: Drone GPS X380 ???

    Dou you know : http://www.hobbyking.com/

    Thanks you

    • admin says:

      1) If you avoid fast shipping services (EMS, DHL, etc…) but just the regular free shipping, in FR in general you are avoiding custom taxes
      2) For toys, in general it’s not really checked. In practice, all these toys have the “CE” sign.
      3) You can try a WLtoys V686G without the FPV module first. Then try later in FPV mode. Order also a 1 CW and 1 CCW spare motors.
      4) Yes the XK X380 is a good choice as AP.
      5) Yes Hobbyking is #1 in WebRC shops

  • Yvonne says:

    Hi, do you think you can email me a PDF of the eachine h8 headless mini? I bought one in America and seem to have left the manual at the store. Thanks so much

  • Andres Mauricio Escobar says:

    I again, Mauricio Andres Escobar.

    I need your advice…

    In recent days I bought banggood a WLtoys V666N, thinking video platform inexpensive, but have disappointments, the picture is very poor and there is a lot of vibration.
    I bought a camera xiaomi yi, which is recommended for use in my purpose of videotaping drone.
    I have seen some drones with gimbal but which should not consider ….

    Thank you so much.

  • Mauricio Escobar says:

    Hi, thanks for your attention. Sorry I can not communicate well, actually I spoke Spanish and I have to use google translator.
    my question is: I have a camera Xiaomi Yi, and needed a quadcopter to put my Xiaomi camera and use it as aerial camera. It took quadcopter but acceptable medium or low cost.I had bought a WLToys V666N thinking that would for the job but is a disappointment. The video is of poor quality and high vibration. Thanks for your cooperation.

  • William Mjema says:

    Thank you for the nice reviews which I take the in high regard. Considering that you are doing a lot of reviews, do you ever have a garage sale? If so, I would like to be informed when you have one.

    • admin says:

      For instance, I keep all the model I received but now it’s too much … I will probably sell some of … but mainly locally coz I don’t spend my life in Post office 🙂

  • Andres Mauricio Escobar says:

    Hello, I am very grateful for your help and especially for your patience …

    Then I buy the XK 380 with elWalkera G-2D Camera Gimbal …

    I saw a user Rc groups which updated with Propeller of phantom and a more powerful battery …
    It is advisable for you?

    I also saw you make a firmware upgrade … Is that necessary?

    Thanks again.

  • Filipe Fonseca says:

    I saw your extensive post on the flying 3d X8 in which you advised not to buy.

    I real want a cheap but good drone that can add my action cam(not go pro) and install fpv to goggles or to monitor. Which quad can you recommend me?
    I have 2 hubsan x4 107C.
    I would highly appreciate your expertise.


  • Manuel Pinheiro says:

    Hi, I’m a beginner and need some advice to choose my first drone…

    I real want a cheap but good drone, if it’s possible… After some reading, I selected these models:

    – JJRC H11D 5.8G FPV 2.0MP HD Camera 2.4G 4CH 6Axis Headless Mode RC Quadcopter RTF (http://www.banggood.com/JJRC-H11D-5_8G-FPV-2_0MP-HD-Camera-Headless-Mode-2_4G-4CH-6Axis-RC-Quadcopter-RTF-p-994589.html) which will be released shortly

    – WLtoys V686G

    – Syma X8C Venture with 2MP 5MP Wide Angle Camera 2.4G 4CH RC Quadcopter (http://www.banggood.com/Syma-X8C-Venture-with-2MP-5MP-Wide-Angle-Camera-2_4G-4CH-RC-Quadcopter-p-965758.html)

    – DM007 2.4G 4CH 6 Axis With 5MP Camera Headless Mode RC Quadcopter (http://www.banggood.com/DM007-2_4G-4CH-6-Axis-With-5MP-Camera-Headless-Mode-RC-Quadcopter-p-986056.html)

    Or another alternative… What would be your recommendation for me? I want to spend around 100€/120€

    Thanks in advance

    • SeByDocKy says:

      First of all I will discart the DM007, what do you aime more FPV or a video plateform ?

      • Manuel Pinheiro says:


        • SeByDocKy says:

          Well … so the match is between the H8D and V686G or the Q222G. I should review the first soon but what I know now for all of the three, they used a protocol based
          on a XN297 RFchip and the associated control range is not so fantastic (~60-70m out of the box). You can improve it a bit by modding the position of the RX antenna…
          but it’s still far of the performance of the first edition of the V686G with the A7015/Flysky protocol. Unfortunatly, they moved to theese new RF chip to save a fraction of money in their production. So as you undersand, I can’t really advice one of this machine …. because you will have to do out the box some mods to extend the range, to increase to Field of View of the lens, etc…

  • Andres Mauricio Escobar says:

    To receive the video tx ( http://www.banggood.com/5_8G-600mW-32CH-2s6s-DC-Image-Transmission-Q-Transmitter-For-Multicopter-FPV-p-984878.html?p=YL2512105842201212FR) I suggested above me, I have to buy? A receiver and a monitor? or is there a monitor that includes the receiver? Could you suggest any? Thank you. Do not cause more discomfort.

  • Andres Mauricio Escobar says:

    hello, it will be a torment to wait 30 to 45 days to receive the package with the quad ….

    • Andres Mauricio Escobar says:

      Inglés (Google traductor)

      I am that maybe I was upset and I appreciate the big help … I really have not had anyone to guide me want to experience …

      Now I have gathered about 600 USD, I think tomorrow or Monday able to make the purchase.

      Detect XK X380, plastic gimbal, transmitter and monitor everything fpv recommended battery and original (5,400 Mha and 20C)

      I think it will be a very good and stable platform video …

      You nuúltima have any recommendation to buy? …
      I can still raise more money but perhaps this is the right choice …

      I think the next level of quality or category would be very costly.

      I am right?
      I’m thinking the right thing?

      Francés (Google Traductor)

      Est-ce que peut-être je suis bouleversé et je comprends la grande aide … Je ne l’ai pas vraiment eu quelqu’un pour me guider veux faire l’expérience …

      Maintenant, je l’ai réunis environ 600 USD, je pense que demain ou lundi en mesure de procéder à l’achat.

      Détecter XK X380, cardan plastique, émetteur et surveiller tout fpv batterie et originale (5400 Mha et 20C) recommandé

      pense que ce sera une très bonne et stable plate-forme vidéo …

      Nuúltima ont toute recommandation d’acheter? …
      Je peux encore recueillir plus d’argent, mais peut-être cela est le bon choix …

      Je pense que le prochain niveau de la qualité ou de la catégorie serait très coûteux.

      Je suis juste?
      Je pense la bonne chose?

      • SeByDocKy says:

        I think you did a very good choice …
        Be sure when you will receive it to take time to fire it… make all calibration procédures, inspect all elements
        Take it very easy at beginning

      La review du CX-22 devrait apparaître sous peu (après avoir trouvé une solution pour leur batterie défectueuse)
      Le Q500 est vraiment une superbe machine… Le P3P également, tous les deux loin devant le CX-22

  • Raymondorock says:

    Hi first of all, I am a great fan of your reviews. You save us by buying things that doesn’t work or to matching up our skill level or purpose.

    I have a question if I may. I can fly a WLToy v222 back to front, do anything with it. Now I like to get a new quad that can do two things. FPV (not sport flying but just cruise around). I like it to be able to take good 1080 video camera. In video taking mode, I am ok with lower video quality for FPV since when taking video, the live video feed will only be use to check camera angle. I ok with Mobius (with its own PFV kit that I saw somewhere) but if I can have the option to lift a gopro, that will be better. Since I like to be in the video myself, I prefer to have a quad that can do altitude hold, so at least I don’t have to focus on controlling the quad 100%. For this purpose, I don’t need to quad to be sporty. I want it to be steady and with decent range! My budget for the quad will be between 150 to 250 USD.

    I have been looking at V666N, but I got a feeling that for heavy lifting, SYMA X8 will better as it has got better motors? X8 can’t do altitude hold so I am still not sure what is my best option. Flying X6/x8 seems too complicated to setup? Any suggestion? I have been looking for months but I cannot decide, except leaning towards on V666N which I am told I will need plenty of spare motors!


    • SeByDocKy says:

      In this case, I strongly advise the XK X380: http://www.banggood.com/XK-X380-X380-A-X380-B-X380-C-FPV-GPS-2_4G-1080P-HD-RC-Quadcopter-RTF-p-974720.html
      Probably the coupon “8RCHOBBY” can save an extra 8% …. so it’s pretty close to your 250$ limit

      • Raymondorock says:

        Hi, thanks so much for the recommendation. xk X380 has everything indeed. Best price compare to other GPS drone. However as Aussie dollar dropped so much recently, I just realize it may be out of my buddy when I get the full fpv kit and camera. I tried that coupon but the site won’t let me use it since it is on sale but at 6% discount only. What is the next level down? V666n with fpv is on only $200. It has a range problem due to cheaper chip set? If it can do the job j might have to live with it. X8C is a better drone if I can live with no altitude hold? Sorry to trouble you on all these question. If there are no good options, I will then try saving up for xk x380. Thx

        • SeByDocKy says:

          In this case, I would recommand more the X8C, more stable and can carry easily a gopro

          • Raymondorock says:

            Hi Seby, I have been giving Syma X8 a lot of thoughts. The only that stop me from getting it is that I do wish the ability for a 2D gimbal as I want that stablisation quality of the video. For X8C, I can see that Mobius with a plastic 2D gimbal will work thanks to your “how to” video. I however not sure if I want to go through those modifications myself. Not confident enough. Attached a GoPro might be easier but it will be way too heavy. So I am thinking, would it be possible to attach that Walkera Plastic Gimbal with the stock camera that comes with X8G? The weight should come in at ~165g which is doable? and if that works, it will be a cheap solution and require little mod on the Gimbal itself? Powering it can be an issue as the quad battery need to power both the gimbal and camera? I love to hear your opinion on this. Thanks!

          • SeByDocKy says:

            The problem will be that the Stock X8G camera will be too light for a correct gimbal stabilization 🙁 … and the gimbal will be completly unstable unfortunatly…

        • Andres Mauricio Escobar says:

          Hi, I hope not to be inopportune,
          I’m similar to his search, a drone to put a camera action similar to Go Pro …. but it was owner V666N …
          I will not recommend this drone (V666N) to put a camera action …
          I say this based on my experience lived in my own case.

          • raymondorock says:

            Thanks Andres and SeDyDocky. Reading the posting here, it seems vibration is the issue? I am guessing the camera is also a bit too heavy for V666N? If I am willing to settle for a Mobius camera, maybe it will work? I am however convince for a Gopro like camera, I need at least X8C, if I cannot afford XK X380

  • Andres Mauricio Escobar says:

    Hello. I hope not to be so upset.
    By now I have desired 600USD for purchase .. (X380, Gimbal, FPV system, battery, etc).
    I can also expect to raise more money and buy this quad …


    You think is best choice for me?

    Thanks for your opinion.

  • gian mario says:

    first of all congratulations for the blog and for channel yt , I need some advice : I own already a syma x5sc1 I was thinking of moving or a tarantula x6 or syma x8c or mjx x101 (I wanted to try to make decent videos with my sj4000 ) … which of the three tips or equivalent? or advice we say in a price range of EUR 100-150 max ? or jjrx x1 ?

  • Phil says:

    Hi From France ;^)

    i’m interested in quadcopter for a special use and would like to ask your advise please.
    is an Eachine H8 or other very cheap quads capable of automatic hover near the floor or against the top ceiling of an office ?
    this way i can just chose flight level to stay there and control direction for FPV filming inside big boxes.
    thanks for your advise and congratulations on this blog and your videos.

    best regards,

    • SeByDocKy says:


      You should try a Cheerson CX-33 with a good altitude hold feature offering stabilized hovering. In another hand, landing are more difficult, the hexcopter bouncing on the ground before full stop

    Mais en plein milieu de session, le débattement de la gouverne se décale complètement vers la droite. Impossible d’aller tout droit, même avec les commandes et trims à fond. Chaud pour ramener le bateau :-/ Rien de coincé mécaniquement. Ça s’est rétabli hors de l’eau, mais ça a recommencé au run suivant. Tu as déjà eu ça ?
    C’est marrant, le paysage de mes vacances (Hyeres) ressemble à celui de tes vidéo, on ne doit pas être loin 😉

      • SeByDocKy says:

        Surement le servo….. peut être du sel est rentré dedans ? essaye de voir ca … ou regarde la prise servo si elle est bien enfichée.

  • Rich Mickiewicz says:

    Greetings and Salutations !!!

    This 55 year old father of 2 is looking to buy his FIRST drone. Unfortunately, I’ve never operated anything that is RC so I know I need something easy. I’d like something with FPV so that when I DO master flying one, I can then start using FPV. Also, nothing mini or really small.

    That being said, I really like the Holy Stone brand (based on Amazon ratings) but no one seems to mention them. Also, nothing small or mini and up to $200

    Holy Stone X400C FPV RC Quadcopter Drone with Wifi Camera Live Video One Key Return Function Headless Mode 2.4GHz looks REALLY good !!!!

    Lastly, where do you recommend I buy it from? All of the websites seem to indicate they come from China, take weeks to arrive and have poor customer support, if any.

    Your thoughts ???

    Thanks !

    • SeByDocKy says:

      First of all avoid everything for FPV with WiFi. The problem with WiFi is the video signal shares the same 2.4G band with the radio control. Conclusion: both video and control are reduced due to their mutual interférences.
      In FPV take a solution working @5.8G. For a beginner machine I would pick up more an Hubsan H107D+ or a WLtoys Q242 but too small for you… so Why not a WLtoys Q28g ?.

    Hey SeByDocKy,

    I represent CustomFPX, a company that makes prescription lenses for Fatshark goggles (and other brands in future). Bascially, people who normally need to wear glasses can’t use Fatsharks without contacts; my company’s product overcomes this issue.

    You can check out our site at customfpx.com for product photos. (It’s a pretty nice site, I wrote it myself :D)

    I write to you to see if you would be interested in getting 1-2 pair(s) of lenses for a review video, and/or other similar promotional activities (though I can’t think of other ones immediately).

    If you’re interested, please do reply and let me know.

    Hey Seby,

    What can I say, you rock. Quick question, i mounted the tarantuala fpv camera kit to the nihui u807 and I am experiencing a lot of jello. What are your jello removal tips?


    • SeByDocKy says:

      Which tarantula FPV camera ? The Yi-Zhan FPV kit one ? …. The tarantula is known to give a lot of jello…. You will have to mount it with a of foam… to absorve as maximum… Try to balance props too.

  • Hello SeByDocKy,
    I’ve tried to ask a question through YouTube a few weeks ago, so I’m hoping I’ll have better luck here. First though I want to thank you for your unselfish sharing of your knowledge and experience.
    My question is about the antenna mod on the Devo 7e. The only question I have is about editing the hardware.ini file. I have the Deviation software, XR-Drone, setup by Patrick at XR-4Drone. There is no hardware.ini file to edit.You stated that if the file is not edited you stand the possibility of frying the tx module. I’ve been involved with antennas in one form or another for 40+ years, at times as part of a job, but mostly for hobby purposes. I’m from the analog world struggling to keep up in the digital world. I’m having a hard time wrapping my head around the need/reasoning around having to do the editing of my non-existing hardware.ini file. Can you please explain to me the reasoning of the need for the editing. In my experience as long as the antenna circuit is balanced, then the SWR’s should be in the safe range keeping the tx from heating up and killing itself.
    I really want the ability to change different antennas. I was told by Patrick that there is no hardware.ini file in Deviation, which I already had discovered, leaving me with no way of moving forward. Can you please give me advice on this problem? Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time.

    • SeByDocKy says:


      FIrst I don’t know this special version of DeviationTX from XR-4Drone…. I always use the last Nightly built available here: http://www.deviationtx.com/downloads-new/category/13-nightly-builds
      With this version, you have a hardware.ini to update according the RFchips you installed Inside your 7E. I never say that if you don’t edit this file you will cook you radio. I am just saying if you don’t edit and configure correctly
      you won’t be able to access to the corresponding protocols.

      • I apologize for my miss-understanding of your antenna mod video.I watched it again and I think when you warned about not having an antenna load on the tx it could fry the tx. You had just said to change the” hardware ini” file and I mixed the two instructions together.
        I’m relieved that I can do the antenna mod and it won’t hurt the tx. I never changed any RF chips in my TX, so I’m guessing not having the ability to edit my non-existant hardware.ini file would not make a difference even if I did have the file. The only hardware change done by Patrick at XR-4Drone was the diode mod to increase distance. Again thank you for sharing your knowledge and experience in these matters.

    Hi SeByDocky!
    How are you? I am Nectarios from Greece and i asked you a few months ago about buying a Quadcopter,Thank you so much that you help me that time I bought (JXD506G) version and i am flying it and getting better day by day. Something else now. A friend of mine bought (DM009) , and as we were have a flying test a few days ago, i lost orientation because i didn’t press ( headless mode ) from the start, the quad was 50-60M away and felt on a small tree (hanged from the arm) , and when i test it later the one motor did not start at all!!!
    the other three works perfectly until now! So what do you think is happening whith the motor (burn out, brake inner Gear maybe, or rebind the quad again? And please tell me in case i’ll buy Spare parts (Are the motors same as (DM007) ???
    Please help me whith this issue Before i procced to any Spares!!!
    Regards from Greece

    P.S Any help will be Apricciiated! Thank you so much!

    Hi SeByDocKy, I was wondering, seeing the Hubsan H501 has a bigger battery, is there a way to use this battery in the 502E? or will the extra weight offset the balance ?

    Thanks in advance !


    • SeByDocKy says:

      Unfortunatly, first it won’t fit the battery bay and second even if it would be possible, the extra weight will stress too much motors and die very fast. I won’t advise it

    Hi SeByDocKy, first of all I just want to tell you that you are the “King Of Quadcopters” if it comes to reviews, tips, etc. I’ve been following you since I bought my WLTOYS V666 two years ago from banggood. Today I maiden my Upair One (newest version with white 4k camera). Picture and video are super its just a pity that there’s no sound with the video. Do you perhaps know of a hack or something I can do to have sound with my video. I like that buzzing sound 🙂 Have a awesome day my friend. Greatings from South Africa.

    Hello Seby I have a big problem with a AOSEN MA CG035 it was DOA (dead on arrival)
    Banggood doesn’t propose me anything but to ship it back….
    No discussion, no response to message since january 17.
    Have you a contact at banggood?
    Could you help?
    Bonjour Seby, j’ai commandé un CG035 à Banggoog le 27 decembre (mon cadeau de noel…) il est arrivé HS, rien, après un mois sans réponse de banggood, je decide d’ouvrir un litige paypal…pas d’autre choix que de renvoyer pour être rembourser… à tu un contact là bas? peux tu m’aider?

    Après de nombreuses réparation , j’ai reussi a “réparer” le drone, test sans helices ok, premier vol : stabilisation tres mauvaise, j’enclenche le GPS : crash immédiat => il était monté à l’envers (les fleches pointés vers l’arière) remonté à l’endroit et maintenant le drone se met en securité directement…je peux faire tourner les moteur quelques instants puis bip bip => https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KPzab5x6wa0.
    Le GPS est bien alimenté, c’estquand il commence a communiquer que l’erreur arrive.
    Je suspecte donc en pièce HS : module GPS + gimbal (1 servo moteur HS) + coque que j’ai du ressouder suite au crash du au mauvais montage d’usine…
    Ca serait mieux qu’il m’envoi les pièces au lieu que je renvoi le drone mais aucun dialogue avec eux. En plus au final j’a ipeut etre plein de choses qui ont pris mal , il y avait plein de soudure a refaire sur la carte mere et les connecteur pour qu’il veuille bien faire son premier vol.

    Bref si tu peux m’aider, tu me sauve la vie…sinon cette expérience me fera je pense quitter le monde du drone pendant un moment (me restera mon x5 mod fpv ) 🙁

    • SeByDocKy says:

      Avec le litige paypal, ils vont se bouger. Au début ils vont te demander de fermer le litige pour t’envoyer les pièces. Tu refuses évidemment… c’est quand les pièces seront partis que tu pourras fermer

      • David says:

        Justement, ils m’ont rien proposer à part de renvoyer le drone en entier!!!
        Moije prefererai un kit fpv de qualité, des landing gear, une batterie et une coque.. histoire de repartir avec un drone normal!
        Bref aller je reste patient et je commande pas les pièces….

  • DAVOLTERRA says:

    Bonjour Seby,

    J’ai arraché le connecteur 5 broches qui reçoit les fils du compas sur la carte électronique de mon Phantom 3 standard.

    Connais tu un artisan sur le Var (j’habite à Salernes) qui fait de la soudure de composants cms, chez qui je pourrais faire ressouder ce type de connecteur ?

    Merci d’avance pour ta réponse.

    • SeByDocKy says:

      Pourquoi sur des composants CMS ? il y a des composants sur le connecteur ?

      • DAVOLTERRA says:

        Bonjour Seby,
        c’était pour préciser que je cherche quelqu’un qui sait souder avec grande précision.
        Le connecteur qui reçoit le compas est arraché de la carte électronique principale, et les points à souder sont extrêmement petits.
        J’ai fais des photos de la catastrophe si tu veux.
        Je n’arrive pas à trouver à Draguignan quelqu’un qui saurait ressouder un nouveau connecteur sur la carte, ou alors directement les fils du compas sur la carte.
        Tu connais quelqu’un qui saurait ?
        Merci d’avance, il s’agit de sauver mon drone.

        • SeByDocKy says:

          Je connais peut être quelqu’un mais ca serait à l’IUT GEII à la garde … Ils ont tout le matos pour le CMS…. Je pense qu’il y a moyen de payer un technicien au black ….

  • Amandeep Kainth says:

    Hello I love your videos!

    Could you tell me how much the XK X251 quadcopter can lift?

    Could it lift a gimball, runcam1 and an extra battery?

    Thank you!

  • Yann says:

    Tu as fait le test de l’Aurora 100 et maintenant le Lizard, as tu vu une différence au niveau des chutes aléatoires du drone? Flip of death
    Je viens de remplacer le récepteur de mon Aurora 100 qui chutait raison, je pensais avoir résolu le problème mais cela n’est visiblement pas le cas.
    Le lizard avec la v1.1 de la carte de vol a t il le même probleme?
    Aurais tu un conseil pour régler ce probleme? nouveau controleur?
    merci par avance

    • SeByDocKy says:

      Pas de FoD reportés jusqu’à présent !,,,, Pour les FoD, installé BF 3.17 + airmode semble les éviter au maximum … pas de encore de fix ultime

      • Yann says:

        Tu aurais un ensemble de remplacement à proposer, je me rends compte que le contrôleur de vol à rendu l’âme et je me vois mal repartir sur le minicube, à moins que tu penses le contraire.

  • Thomas says:

    Can you provide a download link for the sample video of the HUBSAN 501S “Hubsan_Record xyz.mp4”. I need to check whether I can join the video file with my Videoredo editing program.

  • TimboZero says:

    Hello again Seby,
    You should join the RC Discord server, I am sure we would enjoy your company 🙂

  • TimboZero says:

    Just followed your Racer 250 Pro (supposedly a RTF out of the box, F3 fc) setup video and it has change my drone from being a nightmare to a delight. Great setup guide.

  • Jerry Stern says:


    I ahve an UpAir 1 that somebody scrambled the seetings with Mission Planner. I found your default parameters zip file. Did you read that from the controller using the Arduino IDE? I have done some basic Arduino programming… would love to be able to use your parameter file to at least get back to the default factory settings.

    • SeByDocKy says:

      I did the USB mod and connected the machine to mission planner directly. If you are sure to have the Arducopter FC version, yes you can restaure settings with the file

  • Gert says:

    I have been looking at FPV goggles and really like the Headplay se v2 that you reviewed and the eachine goggles 2 but I can not find any comparative reviews on the Internet? Both is currently selling at banggood. Do you have preference? The eachine have diversity and a higher resolution screen but the headplay have dvr and adjustable lens with larger screen 7″vs5″
    But the rest is very similar.

    • SeByDocKy says:

      Hard to choose ….between. With a larger screen, paradoxaly, your eyes are moving a lot in all four directions… can be tiring too.
      As far I know, there will be a releatively soon an Eachine Goggles 3.

    • SeByDocKy says:

      Hi, thank for the proposal …. but in order to test correctly motors, I need a thrust’bench that I don’t own …. Of course I can use a scale …. but it’s a little bit hard to me to proceed the exact testing I would like to do. Anyway thanks for the proposal. Best regards.
