Sure. But basically, all the subjects are getting cut off.

Can you pm me a screen shot of what you mean

Gaza - can you make the subject line section in the forum topic list wider? It's cutting off the subject field really short.

Had another negative encounter, it's been a few years since the last one, just an uneducated ******, going on about drones being illegal yada yada yada.    :-/
Still that didn't spoil my flying time, had an absolute blast  ~~

DB that just means you have shed loads of props in the first place ;-)

Just had a thought, even with all the crashing I've done, I haven't bought any replacement props in over a year ~~

A friend uses 2 x 2200 3s packs in parallel to fuel his 450 and 550.

I used to have a separate lipo to run the gimbal but normally one to do the lot.


If you use one battery to power everything you need a low pass filter or else you';ll get interference from the motors and ESCs affecting your video signal.

Low pass filters are covered in my minimal fpv guide;


If you want to use 2 batteries you can power the FPV gear separately and you wont have to worry about interference or a low pass filter. But you will have the extra weight of another battery.

I use a low pass filter and 1 battery only on my smaller FPV hexacopter to save weight and space.
One circlip short of a quadcopter.
 1 lobe short of an antenna.


I am still setting up my fpv quad  I am running with 1 battery and have a filter fitted works great now (after a bit of fiddling ) but when adding the Minimosd with 1 battery I get a little interference , unplug the osd and fine again .
I am trying to say test and test again


OK thank you for your answers for now I';ll stick with a battery and a filter I will see later
good evening


As a concept for redundancy, i can see a case for 2 x lipo';s in parallel for the motor power curcuit.  Say 2 x 2300 lipo';s.
