BetaFPV ET5 DJI Vista 5 inch 237g


A 5 inch toothpick Quad ET5 with Caddx Vista module, weighs 160 grams and with 650mAh 4S Lipo 237g. The quad is quiet, fast enough, agile and the lightest 5 inch quad you can fly with DJI goggles. Everything built from BetaFPV components.

Video 1 - BetaFPV ET5 DJI Vista 5 inch 237g first flight (EN - subtitles)
BetaFPV ET5 DJI Vista 5 inch 237g (4 min 42 sec)



159 grams with Caddx Vista module and CrossFire Nano receiver


Or with the 3S 850mAh Tattu R-Line battery you can fly over 6 minutes.


1505 motors are perfect for the light 5 inch frame to fly under 250g. More strength would be better, but that's fun.


I fly here with the DJI goggles, the ET5 with Vista module, CrossFire Nano, DJI FPV goggles and the compact Taranis X9 Lite with a Crossfire module on the back.

Flying 5 inches is fun with only 237 grams. The footage of the DJI Digital FPV system is great and that is completely sufficient even with 25mW video transmitter power. I use Crossfire for two reasons. I want to have a better range with the control system without failsafe even if the DJI digital video should stop. And I want to continue to be able to fly the small TinyWhoop analog.


Shopping list for ET5 DJI Edition:
1. ET5 Frame Platte

2. Canopy for Mini Camera V3
The Vista hood is the best, light and very strong molded plastic.
3. Caddx Vista HD VTX Rush Tank Antenna

4. 4x 1505 3600KV Brushless Motor 4S

5. BetaFPV Toothpick F4 2-4S AIO 20A V3.0

6. HQprop Durable T5X3 5030 2 blade Propeller (Banggood)

Other propellers with a higher pitch or more than 3 blades should not be used with the small motors, as they only use too much electricity and do not fly better.

7. Tattu R-Line 650mAh 4S 95C Lipo (Banggood)

Caddx Vista Module pins
For the Vista module I use RX9, TX9 solder pins on the FC which are controlled via soft serial. Therefore soft serial has to stay on and additionally the soft serial setting has to be adjusted under CLI.
Here Softserial 11 is adapted for DJI, since originally under Betaflight both pins run as TX, i.e. Serial RX and TX on B03

resource SERIAL_RX 11 B10


My first configuration 2020-05-23
Betaflight 4.2 with activated bidirectional DSHOT thus the RPM filters are active. Here I sit JazzMaverick blheli_S RPM Firmware 16.9 mit 48kHz ein. ( G_H_25_48_REV16_96_beta2.HEX )

Here is the complete DIFF ALL from Betaflight 4.2 rc2
The settings are not yet perfect.
