Which Flight Control Is Better for Racing Drones: APM or CC3D

We have heared a lot people discussing if APM or CC3D flight controller is better for racing drones,most people think cc3d is faster, apm is too slow for racing rack, is it true?

Actually, you can also use the APM flight controller on racing drones,it adjusts parameters automatically. But as the racing drones are usually small in size, cc3d flight controller are usually small in size too and light in weight, this makes it very suitable for racing racks, furthermore, the newer version cc3d flight controller supports GPS/OSD. So we recommend more of the cc3d flight controller.

The mini cc3d might be a better choice.

Exploded Zero Xplorer V Quadcopter

The zero xplorer(http://www.oomodel.com/zero-xplorer-...o-p-67343.html) V is another good choice for fpv quads, with itís cool appearance, complete functions, reasonable price. We assume there are many friends want to see the exploded picture for this machine.

Just as we can see, the zero xplorer is a flyer which can be splited very easily,this is basically because of itís modular design, we believe and hopefully this design method will help us to repair the fpv flyers by ourselves, which will be just simply change the defective partsÖ

One of the most exciting thing in the FPV world would be the dji phantom 3 has been released, itís definitely intelligent, powerful, and the most important, itís cheap

The main differences between the DJI Phantom 3 and Phantom 2 will be:

First of all, you donít need to install gimbal nor image transition any more, the dji phantom 3 is all ready.

Secondly, dji phantom 3 has Lightbridge 2.4G built-in.

Thirdly, dji phantom 3 has inspire 1′s camera

Fourthly, dji phantom 3 has inspire 1′s radio and DJI PILOT software.

Last, dji phantom 3 is equipped with a 4480mAh 4S battery which offers a loaded flying time of 23 minutes, longer than dji phantom 2 though the battery is of lower volume.

We have every reason to believe the dji phantom 3 (http://www.oomodel.com/dji-phantom-3...r-p-67284.html) is smart choice for fpv addictsÖ.

Walkera Voyager3 & DJI Inspire 1, Which is Better?

There are many friends asking us which one is better, the walkera voyager 3(http://www.oomodel.com/walkera-gps-s...r-p-67267.html) or dji inspire 1(http://www.oomodel.com/dji-inspire-1...e-p-67224.html), itís hard to say which one ie better or worse but we can make some comparision between them:

Firstly, in appearance: they are quite similar, the walkera voyager 3 seems to be a bit stronger as the fixings and transmutable skids are made from CNC material.

Secondly, transmutable function. This is the main advantage of these 2 drones, and they are actually different. The walkera voyager 3 makes the gimbal and skid transforms at the same time, which allows 360 degree photography, while dji inspire 1 makes propeller and skid transforms at the same time. Theoritically transmutable legs looks nice but not as safe as transmutable gimbal, as the gimbal usually wonít affect the safety of a quadcopter.

Attachment 1 dji inspire1 transforming

Attachment 2 walkera voyager 3 transforming

Thirdly, Gimbal&Camera. Both of them are 360 degree brushless gimbal and 4k camera, but walkeraís gimbal used not to be as stable as djiís.

Fourthly, Flight controller. Walkera voyager3 used APM flight controller, and djiís flight control is also ok.

Lastly but which is also very important, price, 700usd difference, and the choice is yours

Thanks for tarotís work on all the electronics, iíve got the complete set, including tarot 250A rack, osd, cc3d,gps, esc, motor, itís not difficult to install them, if you have the earlier version of cc3d, then you may got a headache from welding the plug, but the newer version are great. http://www.oomodel.com/tarot-mini-25...9_570_575.html

Everthing looks well on it, battery and control board on top,and everything are tested to work perfectly, i have to say this is the best 250 rack iíve ever get.

The Tarot 250 Mini Shuttle Rack is the newly released creative design from tarot, a mini size flyer, flexable and funny as compare to the bigger size flyers, and it's much cheaper ( http://www.oomodel.com/tarot-mini-25...a-p-67176.html ). However the installation of this little thing need a bit time, and you have to do some creative work to make it work properly.

First of all, you need to weld the speed controller, motor.

Secondly, you need to change the plug on the battery, you may not need to according to your battery type.

There are some extra holes on the rack which hopefully are designed for future upgrading,for the controller, osd, camera and other fpv equipments.

The total weight with a 11.1v 2200mah battery make it around 420g, ideal for fpv, the flight time could be around 15 minutes.

How to install Walkera G-2D on Cheerson CX-20 Quadcopter is a newly oftenly asked question, we recently have a friend bought a walkera g-2d, he worked on it for more than 1 hour and luckly got it works, we are talking about some tips, hope it will be useful for other friends.
First of all, you need to talk to the seller before you buy the g-2d gimbal, asking them to help you to change the installation slot, this is because the cables on G-2D are not compatible with CX-20.


Secondly, the connection cable on the g-2d is too wide for cx-20 slot, so need to cut a bit to plug into cx-20, or you can just use 3 pieces of Dupont Circle line,then don’t need to do any changes.


This is how do the G-2D look like on a cx-20, it’s working properly after testing.
