BETAFPV F4 1S 5A AIO Brushless Flight Controller SFHSS [BF-01040013_2]

The ultralight F4 1S 5A AIO Brushless Flight Controller is back in stock with new and upgraded features. Compared to the previous version, the new board uses Serial ExpressLRS 2.4G instead of SPI ELRS 2.4G so that it can support ExpressLRS V3.0 and also has a Frsky RX version to choose from. We updated the FC with high-quality BMI270 gyro and BB51 ESC hardware. In addition, this new board supports the Betaflight Blackbox function.

Tons of ExpressLRS items are available now!

Bullet Point
Come with a Serial ExpressLRS 2.4G receiver, which can be updated via Wi-Fi or Betaflight serial passthrough. It is convenient for pilots to flash any version of ELRS RX firmware and especially can flash ExpressLRS V3.0 without updating flight controller firmware.

Power cycle, while holding the Boot button to put the ELRS receiver into the bootloader.

Open the Betaflight configurator, exit DFU mode, and make sure the Betaflight is disconnected from the flight controller.
Choose target "BETAFPV AIO 2400 RX". Flash using the Passthrough option in ExpressLRS Configurator.
How to flash firmware via Wi-Fi here.
The SPI Frsky version board reserves an SBUS port and a UART port, which is available for the SBUS protocol receiver or other external receivers.
Built-in an 8MB flash memory chip dedicated to Blackbox logging. It’s an extremely powerful tool for tuning and troubleshooting an FPV drone.
Integrated motor pin connectors, it is easy to install motors without soldering work.
Particular design with only 3.6g ultralight weight, reasonable layout, and easy to build. With a 26*26mm mounting hole size, it is fully compatible with the whoop frame in the current market.

The Bluejay firmware could support the BB51 hardware now. Both ELRS and Frsky boards are powered by BB51 hardware. If you want to setup the ESC specification, please use the BLHeliSuite16714902A_Beta or ESC-Configurator.

Download BLHeliSuite16714902A_Beta here.
Download the Bluejay ESC firmware. Please choose A_X_5.HEX.
Note: Only SPI ELRS 2.4G version supports motor direction set through Betaflight Configurator and SPI Frsky version does not support. BLHeli Configurator, and Bluejay Configurator are invalid for the
BB51 ESC (both versions).

Below is the diagram for SPI Frsky RX.

SPI Frsky RX
Come with the built-in SPI Frsky Receiver (CC2500 chip), F4 1S 5A AIO FC can be compatible with Futaba S-FHSS, Frsky D8, and D16 protocol. The default protocol is configured to Frsky D16 FCC out of the factory. Pilots could set up the protocol according to your own need in Betaflight Configurator.

Configuration Protocol
FRSKY_D Frsky D8
FRSKY_X Frsky D16 FCC (ACCST 1.X version)
FRSKY_X_LBT Frsky D16 LBT (ACCST 1.X version)

Betaflight Firmware and CLI
F4 1S 5A AIO Brushless Flight Controller comes with the default firmware betaflight_4.3.0_BETAFPVF411 (ELRS) or betaflight_4.2.11_BETAFPVF411RX (Frsky). The default firmware for Serial ExpressLRS 2.4G RX version supports ELRS V2.4 RX.

Pay attention, For the Serial ExpressLRS 2.4G version, ONLY the Betaflight firmware 4.3.0 and up start to support this BMI270 gyro. For the SPI Frsky version, DO NOT flash the other firmware, otherwise, the RX will be lost in control at a very close range. We have already built our own firmware betaflight_4.2.11_BETAFPVF411RX for SPI Frsky RX version to support BMI270 gyro. Please check the below link to download the firmware.

Download the firmware and CLI dump file for the F4 1S 5A FC ELRS/Frsky board.
Note: The RX RSSI values drop when the flight controller is installed on the quadcopter with HD digital VTX (Walksnail or HDZero). For example, the theoretical failsafe RSSI values for 250Hz packet rate are -108dBm. Actually, the RX will be possibly lost in control when the RX RSSI values reach about -92dBm.

Bluejay ESC Firmware
F4 1S 5A flight controller with BB51 ESC hardware could flash the Bluejay ESC firmware now, which is based on BLHeli_S revision 16.7. With Bluejay ESC firmware, it supports bidirectional D-shot and RPM filtering in Betaflight, offers 24KHz, 48KHz, and 96KHz fixed PWM frequency for options, and custom start-up melodies. By using Bluejay ESC firmware on Meteor65 and Meteor65 Pro whoop drones with 0802SE 19500KV motors, the flight time is increasing effectively. The default firmware for F4 1S 5A FC will be changed to Bluejay ESC firmware.

For pilots who want to flash Bluejay ESC firmware for F4 1S 5A FC, please use the BLHeliSuite16714902A_Beta or ESC-Configurator and download Bluejay ESC firmware A_X_5_.HEX from the below links.

Download the Bluejay ESC firmware. Please choose A_X_5.HEX.

注: SPI ELRS 2.4G バージョンのみが Betaflight Configurator を通じて設定されたモーター回転方向の変更をサポートしており、SPI Frsky / SFHSSバージョンはサポートしていません。
SPI Frsky / SFHSSバージョンは、BLHeli Configurator および Bluejay Configurator でモーター回転方向の変更を行ってください。

Connecting External RX/HD Digital or Analog VTX
Both Serial ExpressLRS 2.4G RX and SPI Frsky RX version support external HD digital VTX or Analog VTX. Please note that the SPI Frsky RX version reserves an SBUS port and a UART port, which is available for the SBUS protocol receiver or other external receivers. You can refer to the below picture.
