A Power Distribution Board is also known as PDB, is an overlooked component simply because it is outdated. Electronic components have come a long way in the past decade. Back in the day, PDB’s were an essential component in the building of a drone. But is it still a viable option? Let’s find out.
Aerial drones, technically referred to as UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles), have become mainstream far beyond military use, yet those that are involved in this industry are still highly regarded as pioneers of an industry that is still in it’s infancy.
Today we’re going to check the Beta85 Pro 2 micro brushless whoop from BetaFPV. We’re quickly go over it’s features and specs and show you how to set it up. The Beta85 is a powerful 2″ micro quad that I would recommend for intermediate pilots that want to progress in FPV, practice flying and learn some freestyle. You can also fly it safely indoor, yet capable of handling breezy conditions outdoor too.
Antennas are one of the easily overlooked things by FPV’ers. Your car is only as good as your tires. FPV Antennas collect the video signals generated by the VTX and transmit it wirelessly where another Antenna placed on the receiver collects this video signal and process it and display it onto our goggles. All of this happens in less than 40ms, in comparison an average human takes 100-150ms (1/10th of a second) to blink.
This micro build guide has two objectives, one is to build a quad from scratch and second is to teach a total beginner how to tune and fly the quad he just built. The goal is smoothness, safety and being able to fly through small gaps while shooting at 1080p 60fps with near GoPro quality.
