BetaflightF3 Flight Controller
#1
Hello guys and girls, we've been working with Betaflight on a new design for a flight controller. A lot of time and effort has been put into this...we all hope you like it. 

Anyway, after a several months of going over and testing prototypes we've finally stuck with what will be the finished product. A special thanks goes out to Hector Basil Hind for being there all along the way and helping with his expertise, and Boris B for jumping on board and asking if we can give the users a feature packed flight controller with an affordable price...we've all put a lot of time and effort into it and hope it's what you need. 

BetaflightF3 is an all in one design, designed to fit those critical builds but give the users the options they most commonly use, all the while keeping the same standard footprint of most flight controllers used. PDB, OSD(betaflight configurator), SD Card writer, 3A power draw, DShot compatibilty...the list goes on. We'll have more details soon. Let us know what you think!

Thank you all for your continous support!

Looks great. My only concern with this type of boards is the inbuilt PDB and how it affects gyro (heat and noise). Other stuff:

- why did you decide to put pinhole labels on the bottom of the board? For most of the time they will be useless there.
- how will we keep the SD from not falling off? That one is held by friction only I guess and the socket seems to be very short

As long as the voltage regulator lasts more than 5 minutes, I'll be happy.

Will the OSD allow for tuning in the field?

Don't worry guys, I'll test it as soon as it will be released ;p . Now I'm kind of pumped to put this on my 130 Big Grin

Question is - when will it be available?

Great, but why F3? Everybody is moving to F4. The looptimes will only get shorter, besides software evolution will likely need more CPU cycles.
The next build will be perfect! | Fleet and build info | YouTube Channel |

It takes us a several months of going over and testing prototypes to ensure the high performance, and finally resulted in the delay of releasing. It maybe a bit older than the F4, but we believe it is much more stable. Smile

Thank you Konrad. It will be available in about two weeks. In the mass production now.  Smile

Any hands on experience with this yet? Curious to see how people like it.

Love the osd
Dont love no 12v for cam, and only 25a rating to esc pads (trying to future proof a bit and leaving room for crazy motors/props down the road)
Still learning, so correct me if Im inaccurate. Thx
