Blackout rebirth!

Since I killed both one motor and one ESC, I entirely rebuilt my Blackout with up to date FC, ESCs and PDB. More to come …

HyperLite F4 banggood clone. How to Bind LemonRx sat and use BLHeli passthrough to program ESCs

This board Betaflight Raceflight 6DOF F4 STM32F405 1.2 Version… is a clone of PyroDrone HyperLite F4 Flight Controller. It is great but it has its secrets. I had to wire LemonRX Sat signal to RX3 pad so I could put receiver to bind mode. After that, type set spektrum_sat_bind=5 for DSM2 and type set spektrum_sat_bind_autorst=0 so it doesn’t reset when FC restart. Don’t forget to solder signal back to RX1 afterward.
Another trick to use BLHeli passthrough is to install Zadig driver and replace com port driver with CDC. Once I had worked out all of these, the board is really awesome and probably ready for DSHOT 1200.

New main quad!

I did its maiden flight this morning and I am in awe with this machine. It it really powerful but precise at the same time and I feel like I now have same quad as the ones used by the best pilots. Its main features are:

  • Dshot 600
  • FC and motors soft mount
  • F4 FC

More details to come.

Tiny Whoop build log

I wanted my tiny whoop to run betaflight and have full range reception like its bigger brothers. Also I wanted to keep its cost down. Therefore I went with combination of Lemon RX sat and Eachine F3 FC after I stumbled upon this this video on YT.
