Features

The SPRacingF3EVO has flight-controller features that makes it the board of choice for any new multi-rotor build.

Jaw-Dropping Flight Performance

The SPRacingF3EVO uses advanced processor, sensor and software technologies to make your aircraft fly like it's on rails.
The SPRacingF3EVO flight-controller and the Cleanflight software enables the precision flying you need for fast FPV racing.

Next-Generation CPU

The SPRacingF3EVO has an ARM Cortex-M4 72Mhz CPU with Math co-processor (FPU) for efficient flight calculations that gets more done in less time.
Loop times up to ~2x as fast as previous-generation STM32F1 based boards.

SPI sensor connection

The gyroscope and accelerometer sensors are connected to the fast SPI bus. This enables the software to get more data even quicker to help stabilize your aircraft even better

Race Timing Transponder

The SPRacingF3EVO features a race transponder system for recording your lap times. Each board comes with a special transponder code to identify you at race events. Compatible with i-LAP receiver systems.

MicroSD

The SPRacingF3EVO is the first and only standard sized board for Cleanflight that features a MicroSD card socket for logging. Supports MicroSD/SDHC up to 32GB - just leave one in and log every flight!

USB

USB socket to configuration of flight controller and for pass-though configuration of BlHeli ESCs.

USB socket is not shared with any of the 3 serial ports. No more unplugging your OSD when configuring

Configurable

The SPRacingF3EVO runs Cleanflight which can be configured to suit your needs using a cross-platform GUI (Windows/OSX/Linux).

Small and lightweight

The SPRacingF3EVO has a standard 36x36mm form-factor with 30.5mm mounting holes on a thick PCB for durability.

Stackable

The SPRacingF3EVO is a stackable design. Connect an OSD or PDB directly under the board for a super-tidy and wire-free installation.

Stackable designs are proven to be more durable in a crash.

Broad RC receiver support

Supports SBus, SumH, SumD, Spektrum1024/2048, XBus, PPM. No external inverters required (built-in), receiver powered via flight battery or USB for easy configuration.

Dedicated ports for PPM/SBus/SumH/etc for easy connections. Socket for plug and play Spektrum Satellite receiver.

Unique code

Each SPRacingF3EVO comes with a unique QR-CODE so you can download your personal transponder code.

Programmable LEDs

Output for multi-colored LED strips - great for FPV racing, line-of-sight flying orientation and night flying.

Developer Friendly

Developer friendly debugging port (SWD) and boot mode selection, unbrickable bootloader.

OneShot ESC

Full support for OneShot ESCs for easy PID tuning and a sharper response.

Battery Monitoring

Built in battery voltage monitoring, input for additional current monitoring.

Sonar

Sonar support for precision low-altitude hold.

I2C Port

I2C port always powered, perfect for external sensors or always-on OLED Screen.

Buzzer

Buzzer port for audible warnings and notifications.

Cleanflight logos and stickers

The SPRacingF3EVO features a copper-etched Cleanflight logo so you can show your support!

Each purchase direct from the Seriously Pro shop also comes with stickers! (when available)

GPS Ready *

With a full-set of sensors (Accelerometer, Gryoscope, Compass and Barometer) each SPRacingF3EVO is capable of GPS Navigation
* Available in Cleanflight soon, New GPS features under active development.

SPRacing F3EVO Top and bottom

The SPRacingF3EVO design is:

  • Practical - Facilitates multiple installation scenarios: choose to use connectors, pin-headers or direct-solder wires.
  • Durable - Though-hole connectors for all main I/O for crash-proof installation.
  • Stackable - Mount to compatible PDBs or OSDs using just 2 through-hole pins from each corner.
  • Compact - Entire board measures just 36x36mm.
  • Professional - Symmetrical, Neat and Tidy.

World Drone Prix 2016 Track

Race Transponder

The SPRacingF3EVO features a race transponder timing system. As you fly around the track the FC continually transmits your unique code via IR. As your aircraft passes the start/finish timing gate the track-side receiver records your lap-time.

  • Compatible with iLAP receiver systems, as used by by most racing clubs worldwide.
  • One LED for attaching via flying lead.
  • Reduces your overall cost for a race-ready air-craft.
  • No fiddling around trying to fit transponders in a hurry on race-day. Just turn up at the race and have the race officials scan your transponder and you're ready!
