Want a complete step-by-step RE1

VIDEO TUTORIAL?

Painless360 made a complete series on building a FPV Quadcopter with RE1. Boom. He is basically a superhero. 

Lee from Painless360 was gracious enough to make an immaculate step-by-step quadcopter video build series featuring the BrainFPV RE1 flight controller and the mini Power Board. The series includes details on how the BrainFPV Betaflight port works, how to wire up your quadcopter, and finally how to configure Betaflight and some of the RE1 special features. All videos are below, or you can see the entire series on YouTube.
