BLHELI32 DShot600 or DShot150 is not activated in my ESCs from my code written in c c++ in testing with 3 different ESC

My question is more related to inner working of ESC than coding. Particularly how to activate a particular protocol like DShot600 or Dshot150. Assuming a generic BLHELI ESC has all these protocols. I ...

What is the advantage of a stretched-X frame over a true-X or squished-X design for racing?

Most racing frames on the market appear to be stretched-X (longer than they are wide). I have heard the argument that a stretched-X allows better airflow to the rear props due to physical distance, ...

Is it better to have a bottom heavy quadcopter or a top heavy quadcopter when it comes to a quadcopter stability?

Does it matter where the battery is mounted? Or is it best to have the centre of gravity aligned with the propeller plane where the thrust is generated?

How does the center of gravity affect a quadcopter?

I have heard a lot about center of gravity for fixed wings, but very little about the CG in quadcopters. How does moving the CG forward or backward impact the flight characteristics of a quadcopter? ...

Why is 900 MHz better for long range than 2.4 GHz?

There are various transmitter modules like the FrSky R9M system which operate at around 900MHz rather than the more commonly seen 2.4GHz. Why is 900MHz better for long range drones, and why is 2.4GHz ...
