Flight Controller Repair Series - Troubleshooting Naze32, SP3 Racing boards

How to diagnose a flight controller board after seeing magic smoke, getting it wet, or crashing. There are typically 4 components that break and I show you how to isolate which one is at fault.

Here's an example of a replacement diode:

Matek F405 Smoothness Test

This is on BF 3.2 with all filters disabled and PT1. Even disabled the dynamic notch. So literally just raw. So far so good. Now it just need to be consistent lol.
Planing on doing a comparison between this and the BF F3. :)

Thanks to my sponsors for keeping me in the air:

HOW TO USE A MULTIMETER: Continuity Function

Please consider supporting me via Patreon:

If you work with electronics, you have to know how to use a multimeter. And one of the most important functions of a multimeter is checking continuity. Continuity means that current will flow between two points if a voltage is applied. This is important because 1) sometimes you want current to flow, such as when you apply power to a battery connector and need to supply power to an ESC, and 2) sometimes you don't want current to flow, such as when you apply power to a battery connector and there is a short circuit that starts a fire.

In this video, I'll show you how to use the continuity function to see if your battery is safe to plug in, and how to find a ground pad on an un-marked ESC.

Quadcopter Build Final Check | DON'T LET THE SMOKE OUT

Please consider supporting me via Patreon at:

This video details one final check that I perform on every quadcopter I build. This ensures that you haven't made any mistakes that are going to burn out a component the first time you plug in a battery. To perform this check, all you need is a basic multimeter with a continuity test function. A smoke stopper bulb is always useful. I'll also show you the most convenient way to find ground for continuity and voltage testing.

This is the multimeter that I use, and I highly, highly recommend it:
