FPort is the latest RC serial protocol that brings a few improvements over the existing RX and telemetry protocols. In this article we will take a look at the advantage of FPort, and how to set it up with Betaflight flight controllers in your mini quad.
You can now adjust a lot of Betaflight settings from your Taranis TX with Betaflight using LUA script and Smart Port, including PID, rates, looptime, filters and VTX settings . In this tutorial we are going to show you how to set it up.
In this tutorial I will show you how to setup Betaflight firmware on a flight controller by going through each tab in the configurator.
ESC telemetry allows you to monitor the temperature of ESC, and the RPM of the motors. You can also monitor current usage without having a dedicated current sensor on the FC or PDB (real-time current draw and mAh consumed)
Softserial stands for “Software Serial”, which can create software emulated serial port (UART) for connecting extra devices on the flight controller, and it’s also a great solution to the inverted SmartPort on F4 FC’s.
This article explains what FC looptime is and how faster looptime might affect your quadcopter’s flight performance. We’ll also talk about gyro update frequency and ESC refresh rate which are equally important.
Resource Remapping is an awesome feature in Betaflight, that allows you to swap some pins around on a flight controller. Using Resource Remapping there are so much you can do, for example, to change motor ordering, relocate pins in case of ripped-off solder pads, and many more!
What is Betaflight OSD?
Betaflight OSD (on screen display) is an integrated component/feature in Betaflight flight controllers that shows important flight data on your FPV feed, such as battery voltage, current draw and much more.
You can even use it as a menu to change your quad’s PID, rates, filters and other settings. This article will go into what Betaflight OSD can do, and how to setup it up.
In this article we will briefly explain the different flight controller firmware options available for mini quad (FPV Racing Drones). We will take a look at the background of these FC firmware, as well as what they were intended to do.
A new command “diff” was introduced back in Betaflight 3.0, it’s much better than using “dump” for troubleshoot and managing parameter in CLI. Still some people are not aware of it so I thought I might mention it here.
