Betaflight F3 Flight Controller

Betaflight F3 Flight Controller is taking pre-order.

Betaflight F3 Flight Controller has been put on pre-order for several days.

It’s the  flight controller designed to use every possible feature of betaflight.  The development procedure has lasted more than the past half year. Boris B has worked with us to go over features and design aspects to help give us insight into what betaflight users want/need.

The team at betaflight have been hard at work developing DSHOT and this board is also compatible with the latest release. But we didn’t stop there, this board also features a micro adapter to accept TF cards for those of you that like to follow up your flights with reviewing black box logging…we think we know of at least one guy that will like that.

The first batch of BetaflightF3 is expected to sell out fast so in order to test the demand and set manufacturing goals before Chinese new year hits  and expect the first batch to arrive by Tuesday of next week, Dec. 20th.

Thanks for your patient waiting, and we team promise you good experience.
