Description:

Moving to the next generation of processor speed, prototypes are being built for the using the F7 chip. Support for F7s has been added in BetaFlight 3.1 (thanks Sambas).

So far the Features / Specification is:
  • Runs Betaflight (from v3.1)
  • 3s-6s Lipo battery input - requires a piggy backed POLOLU (500ma or higher)
  • Buzzer output
  • Voltage Sensor (off battery input)
  • Has outputs for up to 8 ESCs (Remapping will allow clean builds - as outputs 7 and 8 are on the other side of the board)
  • Serial or PPM input (does not support individual PWM channel input)
  • MicroSD Card support for BlackBox
  • Three available hardware UART ports
  • Tactile button for booting to STM boot loader
  • Standard pin headers for the majority of connections
  • SWD via JST (on the base of the board - connector not fitted)
  • i2c available
  • SPI available via through hole micro pin header
  • CAN transceiver capable (will be fitted on initial batch - continued if desired)
  • Current sensor input via through hole micro pin header
  • STM32F722RE 32-bit processor at 216MHz, 512kb flash, 256kb ram (NEW from STM)
  • ICM-20602 MPU connected via SPI (https://www.invensense.com/wp-conten...Brief-v1.0.pdf)
  • Micro USB connectivity using STM Virtual Communications Port
  • 36mm x 36mm (standard 30.5mm square mounting holes - to centre of hole)

A F7 mini version (without the SD Card, or Baro, but with a flash chip) will also be available (in a 20x20mm mounting format).

SHIPPING NOW:

BlueJayF4 is shipping now at the following retailers:
http://boltrc.com

The rev4 is released, and includes only minor cosmetic changes from the rev3, but does move to using the ICM-20602 gyro (soft mounting still recommended).

RETAILERS PLEASE NOTE:

The BlueJayF4 is now available from BattRC in wholesale quantities. Please place your orders directly with them. They are also present on Alibaba. These are not clones, and are legitimate.

Please PM me if you want to have your shop added here, and on the https://bluejayrc.com site.

SPECIFICATIONS:

The BlueJayF4 is a cheerful STM32F405 based Flight Controller.

Why a new controller? There was no simple F4 based board out there at the time to replace my F1s. This is the FC designed for those wanting F4 performance but maintaining the F1/3 simplicity - i.e. it comes with non of the extra trimmings - it's bare bones - it's acro you might say .

Keeping it as simple as the basic F1/3 boards to just get out and fly was the intention.

Features / Specification
  • Runs Betaflight & iNAV (note there is currently no support in Raceflight)
  • 3s-6s Lipo battery input - using a piggy backed POLOLU (500ma or 1a)
  • Buzzer output
  • Voltage Sensor (off battery input)
  • Has outputs for up to 6 ESCs
  • Serial or PPM input (does not support individual PWM channel input)
  • MicroSD Card support for BlackBox
  • Three available hardware UART ports
  • Built in inverter for SBUS input (UART6)
  • Tactile button for booting to STM
