What are ND filters and why you need them on your drone

Recently I purchased a DJI Phantom 3 Advanced, and there are SO many possibilities when shooting with its camera that I soon discovered the need for ND filters to be able to get the full potential of the video capabilities.

DJI Phantom 3 vs. Cheerson CX-20

Following from my last article regarding the Cheerson CX-20 quadcopter, this time I would like to talk about how it performs compared to the "top of the line" model, the DJI Phantom 3.






Cheerson CX-20 / Quanum Nova Overview



Recently I got my full scale pilot license and I started collaborating with a local enterprise taking aerial videos with an array of different machines.
I was blown away by the stability of the video that well tuned and GPS assisted multirotors can produce, so I decided to buy a cheap quad for myself to shoot videos in the spare time. Until today I have been using my loyal tricopter, which left a lot to be desired in terms of stability and accuracy.

Banggood was having a nice sale on their CX-20, so I pulled the trigger and got one. This is exactly the same model sold by Hobbyking under the name of Quanum Nova, and it is a great entry level AP platform.

Custom Teksumo for FPV Long Range


After a lot of procrastination, here is my Teksumo wing, modified for long range FPV! I am enjoying my ZMR 250 quad a lot, but with summer approaching I needed a different rig, something which I could throw in the backpack while hiking, to be able to surf the mountains and capture amazing videos. Yes, well, this is the plan at least! Follow me along the construction...below!
