- Built on F4 processor (without black box and altimeter; chipset: STM32F411)
- Firmware: IFLIGHT_BLITZ_F411RX
- BEC output: 5V 500mA
- Interface: Micro-USB
- 2 UARTs
- Gyroscope: BMI270
- ESC 5A (Supported protocols: Dshot, Oneshot, Multishot; Continuous/peak current: 5A/6A; with voltmeter; without telemetry; BLHeli: BLHeli-S; Input power: 1S)
- VTX (Protocol: Smart audio; Channels: 48; Power: PIT/25/50mW; Connector: UFL/IPEX; Input voltage: 5V)
The flight controller offers an integrated radio receiving (SPI) module, which must be selected at the time of purchase: either FrSky 2.4 GHz compatible with IPEX wired antenna or ExpressLRS 2.4 GHz compatible with SMD (ceramic block) antenna. The video part is an optional but integral component that operates in analog mode at 5.8 GHz, on 48 channels with adjustable power of 25 mW and 50 mW. The settings are accessible via SmartAudio. The antenna is a dipole type connected in IPEX.
