In this blog you will find posts about 🚁 FPV racing drones (building, repairing and flying), 💻 web development, 🏠 smart home automation, 👨🎓️ life-long learning, goals and stories as well as who knows what else in the future.
I write code, solve problems and sometimes stream on twitch. I love flying FPV drones, 3D printing, contributing to open source, and working on fpvtips.com.

🆕 Mobula7 HD review and setup
The Mobula7 HD is right up there at the top of the line micro quads, along with side other drones such as the Eachine Trashcan , Mobula7 , Snapper7 and others.

If you are one of the unlucky folks with a busted 5v regulator on your Eachine Trashcan , fear not. There is a solution and the fix is easier to do than you might expect - add an external 5v regulator. You can grab a Matek Systems Micro BEC which would get the job done just fine. Solder a few wires to it. In my case, red silicon wire to the…

I have watched the reviews, had a rough idea of what to expect, but really wanted to experience the radio for myself and see how it would work for me. I’ll quickly summarize some of the most interesting points about the X-Lite. Different form factor than most other transmitters…
