Drone Theory 101: Part 1. The basics, and how an fpv quadcopter functions!

If you have no idea how a quadcopter works, but you want to, then this video is for you. I go over the basics of making FPV quadcopters, ( aka Drones or UAV, ) and explain what goes into making a quad for drone racing. Leave feedback, it’s much welcome! This is my first try at this kind of video, so if it’s hard to follow- please let me know.

    I’m a complete noob thinking about getting his first drone. Without a doubt you just gave my a very clear and easy to understand first lesson. If you’re educating people like this in 2016, you should be awesome now in 2020! THANK YOU!

  13. Toby *-* on October 26, 2020 at 12:58 pm

    Your such a good teacher, it’s so easy understand! Love the tutorial ❤❤

  19. Jon Martello on October 26, 2020 at 1:04 pm

    What if i wanted battery life in exchange for speed, can I hook up multiple lithium battery’s.

  20. Venancio Pereira on October 26, 2020 at 1:07 pm

    Come to teach physics in my country dude. I’d love to see you in developing lessons on all electronic goods.

  21. Pax Magellanic on October 26, 2020 at 1:08 pm

    thanks for the video. I needed help trouble shooting my transmitter disconnecting at 200ft or so turns out i broke the radio antennas lol. Theory is super helpful when trying to diagnose a problem.

  36. Yadel Fassika on October 26, 2020 at 1:28 pm

    if you are building a huge quadcopter that can carry a human do you really need a frame

  37. pavel1809 on October 26, 2020 at 1:28 pm

    What is the différence of 3-4s and 3–6s. PDB XT60 ?? What is better to used

  38. mb on October 26, 2020 at 1:29 pm

    You good sir are fucking awesome

  39. llcoolkat gee on October 26, 2020 at 1:29 pm

    Bro can you be my teacher for everything?

  40. Sergio on October 26, 2020 at 1:30 pm

    hey, so where is the second part????

  41. Anish Rathod on October 26, 2020 at 1:30 pm

    Nice job! You seem like you know a lot about racing drones. You messed up one part when you said that Lipo batteries are lightweight. Usually, the denser something is, the heavier it is. But you were right when you said that Lipo batteries are effecient.

  42. Tadashi KAWAKAMI on October 26, 2020 at 1:31 pm

    It is very nice video ! I should have seen this video at very beginning of my DIY Drone .

  43. Ato Cato on October 26, 2020 at 1:31 pm

    How do I get ZD6 L quadcopter QR code to activate my drone

  44. Toph BeiFong on October 26, 2020 at 1:33 pm

    You’ve got my sub, is there a way I might be able to contact you. I am working on a drone myself and I was wondering if you are able to answer some questions.

  45. Jason Marckx on October 26, 2020 at 1:33 pm

    Superb video. Thanks.

  46. Gelo Musikero PH on October 26, 2020 at 1:34 pm

    You’re awesome dude. I really want to know more on how to make a drone and you explained it very well. Thank you..

  47. Uh-oh on October 26, 2020 at 1:35 pm

    Had a slight interest in drones, and this video did exactly what you aimed it to do! Nice job

  48. kick on October 26, 2020 at 1:36 pm

    I know this may sound a bit strange but can this drone be programed and if not what would be used to run the program on the drone

  49. JustRandomPH on October 26, 2020 at 1:37 pm

    I learned a lot from this. Thanks.
