We are always looking out for samples from manufacturers for the team to be able to develop and test with. The more the merrier as it gives us much greater coverage.Read more
Betaflight supports a wide range of flight controllers that have at least an STM32F4 Processor. The Betaflight Configurator runs on Windows, Mac OS, Linux, and Android.
The Betaflight Firmware supports the majority of Remote Control manufacturers such as FrSky, Graupner, Spektrum, DJI and FlySky. ESCs are controlled using a variety of available protocols including PWM, OneShot, MultiShot, DShot or even ProShot.
Even the less-related components do not remain untouched, with Betaflight allowing the control of many VTX and Camera settings directly from the flight controller.
There is so much support out there for betaflight users. Don't know where to look? We have compiled a list of our favourite resources.
Originating from baseflight and cleanflight, Betaflight continues to live and breath the value of open source. Everybody is welcome to implement their amazing ideas within Betaflight, either directly (preferred) or through a fork.
With the Betaflight OSD you can get all relevant flight metrics directly into your FPV video feed. An easy to use drag-and-drop configuration allows the placement of values like used mAh and LiPo Voltage readings.
Additionally you can change most firmware settings using stick commands wihtout even removing your goggles.
Drones are extremely dangerous toys. As incidents with suddenly spinning props often end with serious injury Betaflight implements several safety features to prevent dangerous situations occurring.
Features are implemented to prevent arming when the drone isn’t leveled, including disabling motors in case of wrong motor or incorrect flight controller orientation.
Betaflight not only strives to put the best flight code on your controller, it also looks to satisfy such requirements as perfect performance, tiny footprint, full feature set and a strong quality assurance process.
To assist in this endeavour all flight related data can be logged into a blackbox for later analysis. So pilots and technicians can objectively base their tune on the most appropriate data.
Tutorial for beginners
Don't know where to start, this video is for you. The basics all wrapped up into an easy to watch tutorial.
To configure Betaflight you should use the Betaflight-configurator GUI tool (Windows/OSX/Linux) which can be found here:
