In the last two weeks I have put together two new scale model airplanes.

The NE-1 Cub of the US Navy in World War II. Model by Hobby King.

The De Havilland Venom Mk. VI fighter jet of the Royal AIr Force. Model by Durafly.

I had posted a blog but I guess I wasn’t clear enough.
So this is an updated one.

I have a TOZO Q1012 drone(brushed motors)
I want to use the stock FC and somehow convert it into a brushless quad.

Things I know I will need:
4 Brushless motors and esc
A Lipo battery and connectors

Things I don’t know:
How to Convert the signal?(will the resistor and diode method help?if not then why?)

Will I have to get a new transmission and receiver or will the stock one work? Or should I just build a new quad ?

Is there anything there, that’s helps me convert the signal?

Or just think of the cheapest way to lift a GoPro hero 5 using this TOZO Q1012 drone.

Thank You!

As NFE's fork is aiming more towards brushed and being based more on preset configs, thought I would keep the FW as it is now with only a few changes.

As suggested by Ian444, I'm going to add the old filters back into the code and add defines to PID file.

I'll try to add SilverAg's dual PIDs, maybe add Joelucids yaw fix and look at a few other code bits from Betaflight. I don't know how successful I'll be but the weather is crap here, so no flying and I've had myself from making anymore quads, so this will keep me entertained.

Let me know if you have any suggestions for layout it things that make a bit more sense with work flow.

Just wanted to fill everyone who is interested in on the startup of my new YouTube channel geared towards you guys... the fpv community. I will be posting videos every week of build tutorials and my opinions on some of the products I use. The good the bad and hopefully help others who might be struggling with something along the way. Come with me on a journey and watch my channel grow and watch as my video editing and and reviews get better. Here's a link to one of my first videos
A little weekend practice. (4 min 56 sec)
I'm supper excited about lending a hand to the drone racing/fpv community and hope to turn this thing into something really great. P.S. Don't forget to hit that like and subscribe button. Your friend, Jeff

Does the latest FrSky R-XSR firmware break SBUS? I found this to be true as I was troubleshooting why my brand new R-XSR that was flashed to the latest firmware (3/8/2018) was not working. I replaced it with another brand new R-XSR that was not flashed to the latest firmware and SBUS worked flawlessly. I later found that a friend of mine had the same issue. He put together this alert for anyone who is having issues with their R-XSR and SBUS. Comment if you have had the same issue.

The Mantis 85 is a mini brushless racer that comes truly RTF (ready to fly) as it includes even a FlySky FS-I6 hobby grade transmitter beside having a battery, a receiver, preset flight controller (PID) and even the TX bound to the RX ! The only thing missing is actually a LiPo charger and you can literally fly this out of the box. How does it perform ? You will see in the video.

Main Specs & Features:
- 3K full carbon fiber bottom plate set up with CNC aluminum alloy stiffeners, more durable and strong
- STM32F405RGT6 MCU BLHeli - S ESC provides stable power
- Adjustable angle of the FPV camera
- Supports Acro mode / Air mode / Angle modes
- Built-in OSD
- Radio stick to control PID tunes / FC settings.

Product summary

The pw-link data transmission module is divided into built-in antenna and external antenna version. The built-in antenna version is only suitable for pix flight control near distance and regulate the use of the calibration parameters, and the external antenna version after a number of practical test and reasonable transmission distance is 450 meters. The use of computer mission planner ground station for a long time the connection test, average stability data the transmission signal is maintained at more than 90%. Because of its small size, long transmission distance, stable data, convenient connection characteristics, very suitable for small UAV data receiving several hundred metres.
PW-Link The whole communication mode is as follows:
