While we were designing the Betaflight backpack one thing kept coming up in the design aspect was how much room the transmitter took up inside the bag. So, we thought the best design would be to make a hard shell top mounted case on the top of the bag. The hard shell top of the case allows for extra protection of your transmitter and frees up valuable space inside the bag.

We are now taking pre-orders on this backpack to judge the demand. During this time we'll be selling the Betaflight Hive Backpack at a discounted rate, please keep in mind that once the backpack is manufactured and being sold when "in stock" the actual cost will be higher.

Betaflight HIVE is a comfortable and protective FPV quad racing backpack built to carry and protect your FPV racing drones and accessories.

Anyone of you have tried this? The foam pad is made by Skyzone for Skyzone 3D goggles. But actually except the Skyzone goggles, this foam pad is aslo fitting the Fatshark goggles. No more light leaks and more comfortable.

BLHeli_32 is the 3rd generation of BLHeli firmware after BLHeli and BLHeli_S. Different from previous versions, the new 32bit firmware is close source. It utilize 32-bit MCU (STM32F0 Cortex-M0 at 48MHz) that runs much faster than 8bit. Faster input signals with lower latency and higher rate would be possible, such as Dshot1200 or even faster protocols!

Now the first ESC that supports BLHeli_32 has already been announced – the Wraith32 35A. Luckily, FPV Model has received the first batch of samples for testing purpose. The results turned out pretty good and the final production version will be available around the 15th of May. You can now preorder the ESCs from FPV Model.
