Greetings, and built the updated drone, but I have a problem when using the command, the engine 4 goes slower or the engines 4 and 1 go slower, but if I accelerate thoroughly all the engines go well, I am new to This but I think that the problem is the command, in the program (cleanflight) I accelerate the engines and these go of wonder, somebody could help me I do not know what to do or if it is the control that I will have to calibrate it.

But sometimes motor 4 is the one that stops first, but when I accelerate them with the software all the engines go very well.

Started painting the Fuselage today. Thinking of keeping the gold accent on the tail fin. Figure I can always paint it black if I don't like the final result.

The popularity of drone use in agriculture has increased over the past few years, and drones are now being used around the world to herd animals like cows and sheep. People who move herds over large swaths of land are saying it’s a more efficient and effective way to get the job done, and it allows them to keep an eye on the land and cattle more easily.

Hi.
I'm a photography student, I inherited a load of parts for a camera quad. I want to put it all together and get into aerial photography for my degree and because I really want the ability to get shots I would otherwise not be able to get. It will be many months before I get this thing built (but I will, I always finish what I start) because I have no knowledge of electronics or any of this.
I have done ridiculous amounts of reading and watched a lot of videos but I've understood very little of it. The problem is that there is nothing dedicated to absolute beginners, except for tutorials on how to build a mini racing quad. My propellers are bigger than one of those and cost twice as much (18inch T-motor). I'm a student and don't have the funds to build a small quad to get some experience. And being a girl I don't have a history of taking things apart or trying to fix stuff (lol). For my birthday I asked for tools, got a pink toolkit I will not be building a pink drone!

After 2 years of owning the Mad Gear Desert Wolf Baja, I have found out that it is extremely fast and durable, but runs out of battery fairly quickly, so either by an extra battery or upgrade to a lipo. I bought a smart charger and I am able to charge the battery in about 1 hour for about 20 minutes of run time. I have only had to replace the servo, which burned out after about a year of use, and I had to replace the tires, which I did recently. One of the shock caps fell off of the car, and it took me about an hour to find. The banana plugs on the battery can be plugged into each other which I accidentally did last week, and one of the batteries completely ran out of charge, but it still worked after I recharged it. The shocks are pretty weak, so the car bottoms out on big jumps. I have driven this RC car through many puddles and it still works fine. I highly recommend buying the Mad Gear Desert Wolf as a beginner RC car.

Here are the links to a few of the videos I made of the Mad Gear Desert Wolf:
