FPV Long Range Flying

FPV Long Range Flying

 

What is FPV Long Range flying or Quadcopter Long range?

So this was only the beginning of my journey because the vibration problems are mostly from the past (small things have to be improved) there is now only one direction higher, faster and more proximity!

The Setup is based on the TBS Crossfire module and Micro RX also from TBS the copter himself is not the lightest or effecientest but it works really good.

I love creating drone videos as well as the mini quadcopter flying itself. It’s always amazing what you can do with these aircrafts for me as a technical freak, it’s like a wonderful bag full of surprises.
For example, the Runcam Swift 2 which I use in my setups surprises me again and again as in the video to see with perfect light conditions one could partially know it is a HD video stream which I see over TBS Vision Board and my Fatshark Transformer. Likewise, I’m always surprised how easy it is for such a small drone to fly with a GoPro and lipo that I also have about 6:30 flight time is simply ingenious.

In this video we fly only 5inch mini quads we built for FPV racing. But with the right Trottlemanagment and the good HQ VS1 probs we get also with these racers on very good flight time in proportion to the size, about 6:30min. The FPV system is made by TBS FPV Vision Board with TBS Triumph antennas and ground Clearview with the TBS Patch antennas.

Long range flying with our racing drones is just incredibly much fun and always the thrill whether you lose them or not. The constant tuning with the spoter whether or not this valley has sight connection, which consumes nervous glances at the battery, whether there is still enough residual voltage. It’s just an experience and with enough experience, a little bit of common sense and trust in your copter, it’s actually quite easy as long as you respect the basic rules.

Long range drone flying isn’t that easy because there are a lot of things you have to watch out for is it’s line of sight or not, if you have enough battery capacity, the antenna angle is right, how deep you can fly and so on. there are a lot of things you should watch out for, so I’m going to make a Howto videos about it soon.

As you can read in my Parts list I use Clearview for longrange flying. Important is to use reasonable antennas like the VAS Crosshair V3 from IBcrazy or comparative antennas from IBcrazy, the included patch antennas from TBS are depending on the environment at 2,5km at the upper end of their range so beware. The FPV image can be removed extremely quickly and easily.

Longrange FPV Drone chasing and Formation Proximtiy and flyng sounds super crazy, doesn’t it? But we tried and we were really nervous but it worked.
Two 5inch Race Quadcopter two TBS Crossfire systems two 5.8Ghz transmitters (TBS FPV Visionboard) and everything works incredible!
The most buzzing thing, however, was the situation with the partner to order the distance to keep the speed and not lose themselves but Manu_FPV and RensenFPV did really well and it was a hell load of fun!

FPV Formation flying with our quadcopter on this mountain was one of the best fpv moments in this year for me so epic.
The hardest thing while flying so close on a flight buddy is to not lose the focus on everything else like the mountain or the Link quality or get lost behind a mountain ridge and so on but count me in for the next action.In this video we used our normal race quads in short 5inch props from HQ (HQ VS1 5×4,3×3) 2400KV motors and a nice frame from Cherry FPV this all on a 1500mha Lipo you see nothing that fancy but with the right throttle management you can get easily more than 6min flight time out of such a quadcopter and you have still the dynamic of a racer I like this the most on 5inch Long-range flying.

Chasing a Flight Buddy up that mountain was one of my best FPV experience in the past two years!

I filmed all with a #GoProHero6 Protunes on iso 100 to 400 color flat, I love this camera and when I use it on my long range quadcopter it is always insane and I’m always happy when the copter and the cam are down here with me.

Flying and filming with my mini quadcopter in the mountains and catching a sunset in this beautiful places is a really cool experience.

TBS Crossfire is working as always perfect but in such remote areas, there is nearly no interference.

in the Vol. 02 #FPVLongRange Quadcopter in this series we will show you some fantastic formation Low Surface Proximity Flying with more than two drones 🙂

filmed in 4k 60p with my Gopro Hero 6 Black ND16 filter was used.

Cinematic ⓕⓟⓥ Formation flight | Long Range Quads | Teamup

#FluxFPV and me #KerniFPV finally met and spent 2 days full of flies and fun with our FPV Quads.
It’s like a dream finally coming true when I saw his first Drone videos years ago I always thought to myself, oh man one day I have to fly my Quad like him and my fpv videos have to look so super smooth.

In a long history where I met great guys from the FPV community like #Trappy, #JohnnyFPV, #banniUK, #Gap707 and so on, it finally happened that I meet Peter alias Flux FPV and he is a super nice guy and the flights were epic. So go out and check out his channel! https://goo.gl/vouxWC

A Cinematic Drone Video and Formation flying was the goal for these flights, but some of you would say now for sure that is not cinematic the first reason is that I stay at 60p and not 24p or 30p maybe I will do that in another video to make that super cinematic look perfect let me know if you are interested in such an edit.

We flew a lot of clear Long Range fpv proximity lines between the trees and down the mountains with our Racing quadcopter and that alone looks like I think super cinematic :), but unfortunately my GoPro Hero 6 didn’t work properly because it blurred the whole background and didn’t focus, it turned out afterward that the lens was out of focus and had to be repaired by GoPro. So please don’t look too detailed at the background 🙂

FPV Formation flying and long range flying is always fun and nothing brings my heart more to beat as this kind of flying my quadcopters, and the best part is doing this with someone like Peter aka Flux FPV, Keep talking and searching for the best mountain surf and not to lose each other out of sight in mid air is not to easy.

This making of drone videos is also something new for me in another matter this is the first time that I use Reelsteady to iron out the last macks, for those who want to see that video without Reelsteady I have a link without Reelsteady editing there you can see that it was very smooth even without it, just comment when you want the link.

I also decided to give the whole thing a color touch of its own or otherwise said I’m trying to get a uniform color look for my future videos, please let me know in the comments how you like it.

All in all, this is one of the longest edits I’ve ever made it put more than 9 days in this project (without flying)
But to deliver this ingenious footage of mr. Flux and me and his visit to me the best possible result was definitely worth it to me.

Long range flying with our quadcopter and Drone Chasing is and was always the best it’s like dreaming you see the beautiful landscape and I enjoy that a lot! And all of this would be not possible without the TBS Crossfire RC link System!

TBS Crossfire 500mw to 2W with a Switch | Taranis Battery Mod

TBS Crossfire 500mw to 2W with a Switch | Taranis Battery Mod

This time I show you a mod of my Taranis and #TBSCrossfire full module how to switch the power with one button from max 500mw to 2W without the need of an external battery, I use this now for over a year and I’m pretty happy with it maybe some of you can use this too.

SUBSCRIBE 2.4K

This is the First Video in a row of upcoming How to Videos about #Longrange flying and the parts and stuff around.

You need:
a switch like that for the Fatshark mods
XT30 connectors and some wire
and this 3D Print
https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2863132
Bigger internal Battery like a 2500 or 2800mha

The 3D print in my video was done with my new mk3 at full speed so its more a prototype, print it slower for better quality! The TBS Crossfire module is normally only designed for 500mw via the internal connector of the taranis XD9, but with an external lippo it can be amplified up to 2 Watt.

To boost this with the button from 500mw to 2 watt you have to set the TBS Crossfire module dynmaic Power to on.

Normally the 500mw is enough for the comfortable midrange surfing more than most people already have enough with 100, but if you want to fly really long range fpv and test your limits then more power is just the right thing.

Flying with our long range fpv quadcopters is a lot of fun and this mod helps to make life a little easy without the annoying separate battery plug it in etc. so try it out and have fun with it if you like you can buy me a beer 🙂 It should be said that in many countries there is a limitation of broadcasting performance and there are legal exceptions such as amateur radio and other tests, etc. Please inform yourselves just before you start.

the approach with my mod is that this can be switched on and off at any time.

GoPro Hero 7 Black Hypersmooth!? | Long Range FPV Cloud Surfing

GoPro Hero 7 Black Hypersmooth!? | Long Range FPV Cloud Surfing

Testing my new GoPro Hero 7 and her Hypersmooth stabilization on a Quadcopter, it was an extremely windy and cold day, you can see the clouds moving very fast into the picture, so the activated Hypersmooth stabilization was really at the limit you can see some light swings from time to time but with a wind strength that closed my car door effortlessly only by the wind I am very happy with the result but it could be better.

SUBSCRIBE 2.4K

I have seen many videos of the #GoProHERO7 and how the #hypersmooth stabilization works or not, it seems to work well for #Gap707, but here in this test I clearly see some bugs (maybe you’ll find them too).
I can’t stress enough what a strong wind blew over the mountains that day, but I’ve done some good weather tests and also found some faults and so on, for now, I’m going to omit the stabilization just for walking and talking is super nice. So let’s talk a bit more about the stabilization of the #GoPro Hero 7, first of all I think it’s a shame that you only have the following selection of stabilization from or auto, hyper smooth or not, then with the different frames. Of course, it’s very nice that you can choose the #hypersmooth stabilizing at 4k60p or4k50p but that you can’t choose the normal stabilizing as well is a bit annoying.

Why does this annoy me with the GoPro Hero 6 you only have a normal stabilization but it works great for quiet FPV #longrange flights or other smooth quadcopter flights. And this also with ND filter and Protunes to the current time this is however after my own try with the Gopro 7 simply not possible as soon as one uses a ND filter the Stabilization comes with it somehow not clear and one receives only to wobble and blurred footage.I’ve done an incredible number of long range flights in totally different environments from spring over summer to autumn and again and every time I put my drone in the air I normally adjust the protunes settings and try to get the best out of the picture and the environment unfortunately the GoPro Hero Back 7 restricts me in this freedom of use with my quadcopters.

For us drones pilots the option would have to come in any case only the normal stabilization to use and or as gap has already suggested the scene recognition in the Hypersmooth stabilization switchable so that one then presumably again a reasonable picture with ND filter and stabilization gets.

The Gopro Hero 7 compared to Hero 6 is nearly the same the image quality is, in my opinion, the same so the main benefit is only the hyper smooth stabilization and that alone is a nice feature but for us FPV Pilots, not all it could help yeah but not in every situation and the worst thing with an ND filter there is no way that the stabilization makes good results and that is big no go.

FPV Cloud Surfing with my Long range Quadcopter is just always fun, unfortunately, the wind was a little too strong, so I concentrated on not losing my line or losing my quad on the top of the mountain. The wind was strong enough to move the quad in a few moments by a few meters, so someone should say that FPV pilots are only good weather flyer :).

Cloud Surfing with my quadcopter (Reverb Frame) and filming some drone video with on top my GoPro Hero 7 or 6 is one of my favorite hobby
