FPV Backpack PCB build (part 2)

The RCModelReviews FPV backpack is a Continuing from part 1, in this video I show how to solder the 200mW module to the PCB and how to attach the antenna and wiring to the camera, UBEC and power. The webpage containing the full bill-of-materials and some more information on the build is on the RCModelReviews […]

Pagoda Antenna Assembly

A step-by-step guide to assembling the Pagoda antenna. The Pagoda antenna is a circularly polarized 5.8 GHz FPV antenna designed by me. You can find the specifications, test results, design files, parts etc. here: http://www.maartenbaert.be/quadcopters/antennas/pagoda-antenna/ Music by Approaching Nirvana http://youtube.com/user/approachingnirvana First song: Current http://music.approachingnirvana.com/track/current https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/notes/id988452756 Second song: Solar Wind http://music.approachingnirvana.com/track/solar-wind https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/notes/id988452756 source

FPV antenna gain and range explained

What’s the easiest way to double the range of your FPV video system? Well you can get a video transmitter that is four times as powerful, or you can get an antenna with 6dB more gain. This video sets out to explain how “gain” works and why high-gain antennas are best used in conjunction with […]

Patch Antenna for 2 4gHZ with Circular Polarisation

In this video I will show you how to build a very simple circular polarised patch antenna for 2.4GHz. This directional antenna is a simple design with a gain of 4.5dBi. source

How to Build a FPV Racing Quadcopter!

Thanks to Lumenier for providing parts for this build: www.getfpv.com After learning about the world of FPV quadcopter racing, we couldn’t wait to build our own. With the help of Lumenier and FPV quadcopter flyer Charpu, we learn about all the components needed to build a solid mini racing quadcopter for under $850, FPV kit […]

ClearBoost Final Production PCB Test – October 22

Testing ClearBoost’s final production PCB design, a couple of minor fixes and corrections over the pre-production units, and no reflow oven failure gives us some great results. We hand assembled these in house after the issues we had with the local company’s reflow oven previously. We had to check the antennas were all tight, as […]

What’s inside the Aomway 15dBi 5.8GHz FPV patch antenna?

Why did this 5.8GHz RHCP FPV patch antenna perform so terribly in my recent antenna shootout video? To try and find out, I pulled it apart. Inside, I could find no fault but I am rather suspicious of the design of the microstrip phasing circuitry and also the material used to make the patch (epoxy […]
