Lithium Polymer (Li-Po) Battery Technology

When I heard the term "lithium-polymer" (or Li-Po) for the first time while learning about and discussing drones, I didn't quite know what it was. Obviously it is a lithium battery in my mind. I use many small electronic devices such as smartphones and laptops in my daily routine, so I have heard of Lithium-Ion (or Li-Ion) batteries before. As a raging DIY'er I also use many cordless battery-powered tools such as saws, drills, and sanders. Some of those older tools use nickel-cadmium (Ni-Cad) or even nickel-metal-hydride (Ni-MH) batteries. The newer ones however, all use Li-Ion. I simply assumed that Li-Po was a new technological offshoot that I had not heard of previously. So in order to le

LightBridge vs. WiFi

I am excited to share some of the technological aspects of the drone platforms that we are using for training. I will keep the format casual and try to keep it under 5 minutes of reading, with links for further study on the subject if desired. As always I encourage questions, comments, feedback, and if you find an error in my information please alert me! We can find the real answer and make sure everyone has accurate information. Nearly every drone on the market uses a WiFi connection between the drone and the controller for video communication back to the controller so you can see near-real-time what the drone sees (Yuneec Typhoons are using wifi). It is a good solution for the most part, a
