Pushing the Limits of UAV PerformanceBetaflight is the name of a flight control software, used for flying multi-rotor radio controlled aircraft.
Originating from the Baseflight and Cleanflight open source projects, the project was branched off as a high performance 'beta' testbed.
Evidenced by years of lead development, Betaflight has matured and grown into the largest flight firmware in the FPV drone racing and freestyle community due to its cutting edge performance, features, reliability and wide range of hardware support.
Betaflight supports a wide range of flight controllers from a variety of manufacturers. The Betaflight Partner program provides hardware manufacturer recommendations from the development team.
The user community is active and helpful, with a Facebook group of over 30,000 members and a growing Discord server. Considerable support resources also exist on Youtube, made by third parties.
Betaflight is 'Open Source', so you can look at the source code and contribute to the project on GitHub. The team has a robust review system in order to maintain clean code, and we are always looking for talented contributors.
With the Betaflight On Screen Display you can use drag-and-drop to set up key flight metrics into your FPV video feed. This allows data such as battery metrics, speed, altitude and home direction.
Alerts for and arming blocks for improper setup, and disarm mechanisms are built in to avoid accidents. A comprehensive failsafe mechanism is featured to assist in flight issues.
Betaflight was created for cutting edge flight performance. This has been achieved by optimizing the reaction time to disturbances, the accuracy of stick tracking, and the processing of digital signals.
Highly skilled developers lend their time for free in order to develop and maintain this project.
If you enjoy this firmware or use it for professional work we would really appreciate your support.
We use the donations to help with out of pocket costs, e.g. test hardware, hardware analysis equipment and running build servers.
For those who do donate either their time or funds, we are exceptionally grateful for.
