BetaFlight F3 is a new flight controller designed to use all the features of Betaflight by Boris B. With over 6 months of development and testing, Boris B worked alongside us to go over features and design aspects to help give us clear indications into what Betaflight users want/need. Making this the ultimate Flight Controller FC for Drone Racing pilots that want features , performance and all in a compact size. This F3 board features a 3A power draw giving users extra room for added attachments through the uart ports.
The six layer PCB is a more expensive design approach but was needed to give the ability to have a PDB that was capable of having wiring pads on both the top and bottom of the board. By using the six layer design we were able to increase the size of the pads and work around all the components all the while giving esc connections in the corners of the board rather than bunching all connections on either the top OR the bottom. Featuring a fully functioning OSD On Screen Display that can be configured to show different aspects of the flight in Betaflight this board will make configuring your OSD a very simple process.
The BetaFlight crew have been hard at work developing DSHOT and this board is also compatible with the latest release. It supports all D-Shot protocols such as 150 300 and 600 But we didn’t stop there, this board also features a micro adapter to accept TF cards for those of you that like to follow up your flights with reviewing black box logging.
Choosing your power supply for video is relatively simple. BetaFlight FC has two options, 5v and battery voltage. Choose your camera voltage by jumping RAM with either the 5V solder section or the Vbat solder section.(its recommended to use Vbat, Most cameras and Video transmitters can run off battery voltage) If using 5v it is recommended to only power your camera and get the power for Vtx from another source.
