Joshua Bardwell F4 AIO Flight Controller
#1
Here is a new FC manufactured by RaceDayQuads and Joshua participated in the design. The board has some similarity to CL Racing F4S which I reall like. Moreover it uses CLRACINGF4 target. Fortunately this FC doesn't have the death roll issue like CLRACINGF4S. Here are the details:

 ✓ 3-6s F4, AIO board with MPU 6000 gyro
✓ Superb board layout allowing for easy and clean builds
✓ Joshua Bardwell authored manual and selected features, manufactured and backed by RaceDayQuads
✓ Centrally located gyro
✓ Betaflight OSD w/131a current sensor
✓ Compact 30.5x30.5 board layout
✓ 7.6v filtered power out for VTXs – very strong filtering capability for clean video (the 5v output is also filtered)
✓ Power Out: 3x 5v, 1x 3.3v, 1x VBAT, 1x VTX filtered power (7.6v), 1x Camera filtered power (7.6v);
✓ 4x UARTS for FRSKY, SBUS, IBUS, SAT (2 inverted UARTS)
✓ Smart Audio compatibility and Camera Control capability
✓ Pre-flashed with BF 3.2.1 – Compatible with CLRACINGF4.hex
✓ Programmable LED pin
✓ Buzzer pins
✓ Blackbox capability
✓ No pinned-connectors – all direct solder for optimal durability
✓ Included and installed vibration dampeners
✓ 7.29g Weight

Video from Joshua:




Currently the board is not available but if this FC provides the same quality as CL Racing F4S but without the death roll issue I will buy one for sure.

Thank you Unseen. Unfortunately when I tried to register on flyinmachines.de I could choose only Germany as country in my customer account settings. So I afraid they are not selling outside of Germany.

Oh, that's annoying.

Ordering directly from RaceDayQuads really isn't an option as once I've paid for shipping and then VAT and administration charges on import, it will end up being a very expensive flight controller.

They are available from Race Day Quad, they are just sold out. I have two boards on my bench for the next build that I bought from Racedayquad a few weeks ago.

It would be great if Mr. Bardwell and RDQ could consider Europeans when they make new hardware. I don't see a single UK distributor listed.

For me, here in Sweden, I'll probably buy one from their Norwegian distributor when they arrive, but the price works out to close to $50 once the Norwegians have added on their profit.

I found another vendor. I have never ordered from them.

I had the same problem (living in europe but not germany). When emailing flyingmachines directly you can order by email no problem. You even  get a customer number but no way to log in Dodgy   a bit of a hassle. But apart from that it works fine

What a remarkable attitude!

Companies who don't make things easy for potential customers don't get my business.

I'm in Sweden. Posting a flight controller to Germany or Sweden is neither here or there as far as they are concerned. Why they wouldn't make it easy for customers from the EU but outside Germany to order is hard to understand.

I'll wait for a Bardwell F4 to turn up at a vendor who actually gives a shit.

I have one on the way from RDQ. Looking at it, I feel like it is going to have a few features that my make it a new fave! I am currently using DYS F4 (Upgrade) Pro FC's and they work great. The layout is similar, but the JB F4 FC seems great on paper.

"I have one on the way from RDQ."  Me too...suppose to be here Tuesday.....will be using it on my new build.   RDQ is back in stock for those that don't know.
