Introduction
"Due to many questions about my latest Cleanflight improvements and tests here is some more central information about it. The motivation for this project is to bring the end users closer to the development. As my main focus in Cleanflight is the flight improving development. A flight test group like this is very useful.
The BetaFlight fork is from the current Cleanflight Master with possible future Cleanflight flight performance enhancements.


It's highly recommended that anyone using this firmware should take common sense precautions such as:

* Remove all props from the Copter before powering up
* Perform basic operational tests on the bench, such as FailSafe tests, motor spin-up tests etc

Motivation
The original intention of this project is only to improve testing of the current CleanFlight and new features for those who are not familiar with GitHub and compiling of own firmwares.
After a while I realised that some things in CleanFlight are not being done on the most optimal way to give the maximum performance out of our machines. My main focus is to prioritize acro flight behaviour and give that the main priority, but still maintain good and solid level modes. Also we do want to prevent advanced tuning and stick to only PID's adjustments.

Tools
Betaflight is also always being adjusted to support most current Cleanflight tools like Configurator and EzGui devices and many other MSP tools. There is no special tool needed just...Continue Reading
