Betaflight supports nearly all flight controllers on the market having at least an STM32F4 Processor. The Betaflight Configurator runs on Windows, Mac OS, Linux, and Android.

The Betaflight Firmware supports all major Remote Control manufacturers like FrSky, Graupner and FlySky. ESCs are directed using PWM, OneShot, MultiShot, DShot or even ProShot.

Not even less-related components stay untouched, so Betaflight allows to control VTX and Camera settings directly through 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 the idea of open source. Everybody having precious ideas is welcome to implement them for the main product.

With the Betaflight OSD you get all relevant values during flight directly into your FPV video feed. An easy to use drag-and-drop configuration allows to place values like used mAh and LiPo Voltage readings.

Additionally you can change most firmware settings using stick commands wihtout even removing the goggles from your face.

Mini-drones are dangerous toys. As incidents with suddenly spinning props often end bloody, Betaflight implements several safety features to prevent dangerous behavior.

Features are implemented as preventing arming when the drone isn’t leveled and switchig off drones in case of wrong motor or flight controller orientation.

Betaflight not only strives to put the best flight code on your controller. Also it satisfies requirements as perfect performance, tiny footprint, newest features and a strong quality assurance process.

All flight related data can be logged into a blackbox for later analysis. So pilots and techniciants can base finest tunings on objective data.
