Hardware Reference


This page provides details for hardware developers for future boards to ensure maximum compatibility with Betaflight.

Target Maintenance

A hardware developer is responsible for developing, and maintaining, their target within Betaflight. Target files are being separated as much as possible to the main code so as to facilitate this.

Adding new targets

If you are adding a new flight controller then:

  1. Make any PRs against the master.
  2. Don't change the travis.yml or files - these are just for a subset off all builds to check PRs
  3. Add page to board section in support describing the flight controller and giving a link to at least one supplier.
