Can’t wait for Toppilot? Please check out the R-Line!

Good news! For those who can’t wait to get through the process of applying a free Toppilot battery, please look forward to our R-Line professional FPV racing batteries.

What is R-Line?

R-Line is a brand new product line specifically designed for professional FPV racing competitions. It’s the selling version of Toppilot batteries.It’s also a subsidiary of the Tattu brand. It’s got higher capacity, lower internal resistance and lower landing temperatures. They are remarkably more powerful than other graphene batteries. Generally, R-Line batteries have the same specs as our popular Toppilot batteries.

At the moment R-Line includes two items: the 1300mAh 4S 95C and the 1550mAh 4S 95C. R-Line is currently in version 1.0. In the future different versions will also be rolled out to meet the needs of different FPV racing competitions.

When and where can I get it?

R-Line batteries are schedule to be on sale since late August. You will be able to order them from our official shop www.genstattu.com. Due to the high demand R-Line will possibly be available for pre-order. Please follow us on Facebook or Instagram and check back regularly.

What is FPV and the basic introductory parts of FPV

What is FPV?

FPV is the abbreviation of First Person View, it is a device based on remote control model airplane or remote control cars equipped with wireless camera to transmit images, which can be controlled on the ground.

1
The basic common parts of FPV are aircraft kits, antenna, video transmitter, video receiver, image display and storage, remote control, camera and others.

FPV basic introductory parts:

1. Battery:

FPV batteries are generally lithium polymer batteries because of its better comprehensive performance, such as large energy density, light weight, resistance to high current. Even though, FPV cannot fly in a long time in flight, most of them can fly about 20-30minutes. Therefore, for more fun when flight, buying several batteries is a good way to deal with this problem. I recommend the Gens ace & Tattu 1300mAh battery and 1050mAh battery for your FPV battery.

2.Charger:

The Li-po battery for UAV is in series which means there are several Li-Po cell connect in series internally, so in order to have every cell charges fully, it’s advisable to choose a “Balance Charger”.

3.Motor, ESC and flying control system

The motor consists of brush and brushless motor, brushless motor is very common in photography UAVs, which is powerful and quality. The motor will transmit the power from battery to spin itself speedly and then drive propellers spin to fly. And ESC is the controller of motor, it will transmit the signal infomation of flying system to motor current. The current size through motor is the speed size of propellers.

4. OSD and GPS

The UAVs GPS system is also very important, because one-key return, fixed-point and fixed height, hover and other functions depends on it. OSD is also known as figure transmission, it is the most important in FPV. Cause if you want to really have fun, the delay degree OSD is pretty critic.

5.Remote control channel, handlers and unlock

The size of the remote control and handle feeling is not very important, instead whether the remote control button layout reasonable and complex or not. The remote control channel means the up and down (throttle size), left and right, front and back, left spin and right spin. Quadcopter need to have at least 4 channel to fly safely.

6.Propeller

Currently, the most commonly used props are the self-tightening pair opposite props. Pilots can purchase multicoloured self-tightening quality props to make your UAVs look more cool. The UAVs flight follow the principle of physics, whose installation is also two opposite sides. It mainly offsets the rotation thrust of spinning to make UAVs get rid of the earth’s gravity and fly in the air.

How to buy battery and use precautions

How to buy battery?

1. To choose has “national exemption” “Chinese famous brand” marks of the battery products and local famous brand products, that have the quality guarantee. Such as Gens ace&Tattu RC car lipo battery.
2. According to requirement of the electrical appliances, to choose the battery type and size, and also according to the size of the electrical appliances power consumption and characteristic, to purchase the fit battery.
3. Check the battery of the production date and shelf life, to choose the new battery, the new battery has better performance.
4. Check the battery of appearance, should to choose and buy the multicopter battery of package exquisite,look neat and clean and no leakage.
5. Pay attention to the battery marks, shall identify the manufacturer name, polarity, type, nominal voltage, trademark and others on battery. On the sales packaging, shall have the address, production date and shelf life or indicate shelf life of deadline, execution of the standard number. When buying the ALKALINE zinc manganese battery should has the “ALKALINE” or “LR”.
6. Due to mercury in battery is harmful to the environment, in order to protect the environment, when you purchase the battery should has trademark with “no mercury” “0% mercury” “no contain mercury”.

Using the battery should be attention

1. Keep the clean between electrical and battery contact parts, wipe with wet cloth when necessity, after drying according to the polarity marked loaded correctly. It’s very important things when install the battery should to see clearly the battery polarity, we should be according to the requirement of electrical appliances manual installation using the recommended battery; If not,maybe lead to failure, and damage the electrical appliance or battery.
2. Don’t mix of the old and new batteries, should be replaced them at the same time. And don’t mix the same type but different brand of batteries, or you will make a set of some batteries in the battery over discharge in use, thus increasing the battery of leakage possibility.
3. Don’t heat or charge for disposable batteries, otherwise the possibly explosion.
4. Don’t short circuit, to avoid the battery leakage and heat by damage to the insulating outer packing.
5. Remove the battery when you don’t use the electrical appliances for a long time, and after used should turn off the power, lest make the batteries continue to discharge its internal battery adverse chemical reaction and lead to leaks.
6. Don’t discarded the wasted battery, as far as possibly to separated with other rubbish.
