For Windows, download the file with the “.exe” extension. For macOS, download the “.dmg” file.

Once you’ve downloaded the package, unzip it on your computer. You should find the executable file “betaflight-configurator.exe,” which you can run directly without any installation.

If you receive a security prompt, simply select “Run Anyway.”

The same procedure applies to other software requiring installation.

Please note that standalone applications do not update automatically. You will need to update them manually. For convenience, a popup should appear when you start the configurator if a new version is available, directing you to the download page.

If you can’t install Betaflight Configurator using the .exe file, you can download the portable zip file: betaflight-configurator_xx.xx.xx_win64-portable.zip.

Unzip this file, and you can run Betaflight Configurator without installation. This portable solution can also be run from a USB drive on any computer.

Conclusion

Having the right software tools is crucial for optimizing your FPV drone flying experience. With Betaflight Configurator and other mentioned tools, you can ensure your drone performs at its best. Download and familiarize yourself with these applications to enhance your FPV adventures. Happy flying!

Hi Oscar, I got my Novice II a couple days ago and I tried flying it with the default gear and settings with 2s. It’s my first FPV so noooot easy! It flies pretty fast and powerful though.
Anyway, I tried the whole process of betaflight installation and drivers download (both CP210x and STM) and then reboot systems (both my pc at work and my macbook at home), plug in the quad with the provided usb cable and I got nothing.
It powers on, all LEDs on, three beeps and then no way to get the port visible in BF.
Any ideas where the problem could be?
As I’m not in the position to buy a proper RC yet, I need to get into BF and balance the inputs of the sh…ty bundle RC.
Many thanks in advance.
Best
Nicola (from Italy)

After downloading Betaflight from Github releases the side scroll bar with Welcome ,Firmware flashers appears but the complete active yellow page is not high lighted and it does not operate.

My builds take less time than F C programming. KKs worked great and tune at the field but are heavy. Betaflight drives me crazy. Local nerds are no help. U-Tubers “drone” on forever. HALO F# +OSD has got me baffled. How many apps, etc. are necessary for a simple fpv drone?
