TLDR or a short version of my long story:

Im in progress and in search of getting funds together for startup investment. Not too much. According to my plan, around 15.000 EUR is needed pre-launch.
Since I have some web building knowledge, some marketing experience and I am an engineer without a diploma, i do almost everything myself.

Whats coming:

Exciting new carbon-hybrid sheet material. It has up to 32% better strength to weight ratio with no significant drawbacks concerning hobby aircraft frames.
Yes, I have done several prototypes and testing throughout the past year I have been developing this.

Awesome new multirotor frames. Some hints of that:

Becoming a little bored waiting for my micro Flysky receiver to turn up , a while ago i grabbed one of these......

.....but was incredibly underwhelmed with the performance of "wifi fpv" underwhelmed is a bit of an understatement. So with free time on my hands , an active imagination and a micro 5.8ghz FPV cam i decided to start hacking away with my sledge hammer , in truth no tools were needed except a small screwdriver and a soldering iron.


Remove the 8 screws and take the top off

Get rid of all this rubbish

Recently a guy in Melbourne Australia got busted by CASA (our FAA) for sending his drone to a hardware store called Bunnings (Like Home Depot) for a sausage at the veterans sausage sizzle they hold to raise money. The guy is staring down the barrel of a $9,000 fine but I think there is crowd funding in place to pay the fine if it gets slapped on him. Trivia: A sausage in Australia is also known as a 'banger' or 'snag' It is unsure if he requested onion, but it appears no onions were injured in the making of the video... No Ketchup either?

How to Turn Your Backlight On and Off Without Tying Up a Useful Switch

In Mike Shellim's F3J/TD setups, both Version 2 (F3J_200_X and F3J_200_V) and Version 3 (F3J_300_X and F3J_300_V), logical switches L1 through L5 are used to manage the Calibrate mode. Calibrate is enabled by holding the right stick in the lower-left corner (assuming Mode 2) while activating SH↓, and it's released by activating SH↓ alone.

Also, in Version 2 the backlight is switched on and off with SF↓ and SF↑ respectively, via Special Function 4. This appears to have been eliminated in Version 3 but could easily be added by the user if desired.

The following is a programming method I use that leaves Mike Shellim's Calibrate mode untouched while allowing SH↓ to also toggle the backlight on and off, freeing SF for a more useful function. When your radio enters Calibrate mode, which is normally used when your model is indoors where you might actually need the light, the backlight will automatically be on. In other flight modes the backlight will be off by default, but can be toggled on and off by flipping SH↓.

This programming can be combined with my SetFail flight mode for setting failsafe in flight, which is activated by holding SH↓ for one second, resulting in SH having three different functions:
  1. SH is used to enter and exit Calibrate mode as per Mike Shellim's setups.
  2. SH is used to toggle the backlight on and off.
  3. SH (held for one second) is used to

Hello guys and girls, we've been working with Betaflight on a new design for a flight controller. A lot of time and effort has been put into this...we all hope you like it.

Anyway, after a several months of going over and testing prototypes we've finally stuck with what will be the finished product. A special thanks goes out to Hector Basil Hind (whom I can't tag in this post) for being there all along the way and helping with his expertise, and Boris B for jumping on board and asking if we can give the users a feature packed flight controller with an affordable price...we've all put a lot of time and effort into it and hope it's what you need.

BetaflightF3 is an all in one design, designed to fit those critical builds but give the users the options they most commonly use, all the while keeping the same standard footprint of most flight controllers used. PDB, OSD(betaflight configurator), SD Card writer, 3A power draw, DShot compatibilty...the list goes on. We'll have more details soon. Let us know what you think!

Thank you all for your continous support!

I was looking for my little motor and prop testing post earlier today so that I could update it and ended up digging through a number of pages before actually finding it. I figured I'd copy the data here to this little RCGroups Blog section so that I don't have to keep digging and if anyone else finds the information useful, they can find it more easily here, too!

I'm treating this as a live document and I'll post a reply to the thread when I've made significant updates.

These tests are not scientific and the setup is pretty crude, but I think the results are useful. Decide for yourself and lemme know what you think. Just don't be mean; I'm a delicate flower!

Testing Methodology
The fixture pictured above is what I'm currently using for these tests; it's permanently mounted to that scale. The scale measures grams with a resolution of 0.01g. I've found it to be accurate and repeatable down to ~0.02g. I was initially concerned that having the motor cantilevered out from the center of the scale like that might throw off the readings, but I've placed various calibrated weights on the motor mount, ranging from 0.02g all the way up to 65g and the reported numbers were spot on. The 100g weight helps dampen the fixture and stabilize the readings. The motors and props are oriented upside down so that the direction of thrust pushes the motor down into the scale. This allows the prop wash to go into free space and prevents it from hitting the scale (or getting recycled back into
