Apologies for the silly question, another newbie here.. I like those ESC's and the option to get them with BLHeli, but I'm still trying to figure out the wiring. What are the black and white twisted cables getting soldered to? I see the red to positive and black to negative, but are there 2 (white/black twisted) cables that need to communicate with the FC, or is it just the white for signal to FC, and the smaller black is just another negative cable?

The white wire is the signal wire that you hook to the FC, and the black is a ground wire that you also hook to the FC. Personally, I snipped the ground wire off the ESC and only ran the white wire from the ESC to the FC. Others have said they had ESC de-sync problems when they did that, but since my entire system shares a common ground through the SimplePDB, I have not experienced any problems.

Looks like a good value and a clean build. Nice choice on the Xiaomi Yi, I love mine! Might want to label your flight controller as it's under "Misc Parts" at the moment.

What browser are you using and do you have access to your javascript console? Let me know if you see any errors. I'll get it fixed.

Looks like you got it squared away. I'll have to get OSD and PDBs in there. Thanks for the suggestion!

I'm using Chrome, and there are no errors in the console that pertain to categories. Let me watch the network tab and see what happens.

AirbladeUAV has done it again and this time they've brought long range to the 5" class! Based on the popular Transformer Mini, the new Transformer 5" Ultralight adopts a lot of the same design philosophies with larger props and more payload capacity. It can fly upwards of 20 minutes on a 4 cell Li-Ion battery pack and in ideal conditions it's got a range of over 4 to 5 miles. In this guide I'll walk..

With the release of the DJI FPV Drone cinematic FPV has become a lot more accessible, but you certainly don't want to crash a $750 drone! The QAV-CINE Freybott is a compact, lightweight cinematic FPV drone that can take a hit and keep going. It's a lot safer to fly indoors and around people. With a naked GoPro or the SMO 4k you can capture some great stabilized footage. In this guide I'll show you..
