Drone/FPV Guides & Tools

Welcome to the guides and tools pages - they are mostly for beginners, mainly focusing on questions I keep reading over and over again. Now keep in mind, you should always see any page on the net as just one source - recommendations I make may be outdated, or controversial to others.

FPV / Drone FAQ

What is the difference between a camera drone and an FPV drone?

A camera drone is a multirotor drone with a built-in camera that captures stabilized footage. An FPV (First-Person View) drone is a quadcopter that is controlled from the pilot's point of view, with a live video feed sent from a camera mounted on the drone. While camera drones are great for capturing high-quality footage, FPV drones offer a more immersive and thrilling flying experience.

How long does it take to build an FPV drone?

The time it takes to build an FPV drone can vary depending on your skill level and the complexity of the build. A simple build with pre-built components can take just a few hours, while a more complex build with custom components and modifications like my tiny champions can take several days or even weeks.

What is the range of an FPV drone?

The range of an FPV drone depends on a variety of factors, such as the power of the video transmitter and receiver, the type of antenna used, the output power and any obstructions in the area. In general, FPV drones have a range of several hundred meters to a few kilometers, but here in europe the legal output power limit of 25mW will usually keep us below a kilometer

can I fly my FPV drone indoors?

Flying drones indoors can be tempting, especially during bad weather or in small spaces, but it can also be dangerous. Not only can you damage your drone or property, but there is also a risk of harm to people or pets.

I'd strongly recommend that new pilots only ever power up small, lightweight drones such as "Tiny Whoops" indoors until they have developed their skills and confidence. Always make sure to take necessary precautions and be mindful of your surroundings when flying indoors.
