One Becomes Two: The re-release of the QuadRacer Enso

Posted by John Cotterill on

The Enso has chugged along in the background of the Australian freestyle scene for some time. We felt like we had a good offering, strong, not too heavy, versatile in build, easy to maintain. But we were approaching it the wrong way. As a racer, i'm often drawn to function heavily over form and in doing so, you actually close your mind to a whole range of possibilities. About 6 months ago Warren Mutimer (RokNRolr FPV) joined the team and started pushing me in a direction, then Sebastian Elliott jumped in and collectively with input from them and some other...

An Unconventional Metric of Success

Posted by John Cotterill on

For most companies, profit growth is a measure of success. While this is true at Quadracer also. We also operate on a couple of other metrics to measure the success of our products.

One of the things we prominently did was change our carbon to an upgraded level, absorbing the cost to improve reliability. At first there was no measurable way to determine the success of this change, but over time it's become evident in the numbers. We pride ourselves on the unconventional metric that less...

Once that's done, simply set up camera control on UART 4 under ports and you should then be able to use stick commands to access camera OSD while disarmed. Thanks to Dan Vogel for the screenshot and the work figuring out the best...

TPU and Antennas

Posted by John Cotterill on

Many if not most of you have now seen the youtube video by painless 360, if not, go have a quick look then come back here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9JZJ9X4eYvA What Painless360 asserts in this video is that TPU shifts the frequency of your video output akin to picking up R5 on F4. However, his assertion is false and the interpretation that it is of a significant impact or that it justifies a stop in use of TPU as an antenna mount is also false.What the data is really showing is a shift in the tune of the antenna. All antennas are tuned...
