ELRS_V1.0 Firmware Information and Update Process

The AIO FC comes pre-flashed with ELRS_V1.0. It is advisable to stay on this version until the official release of BetaFlight 4.3 to avoid any bugs. If you wish to update the FC firmware using a TX with firmware ver. 2.x, follow the steps below:

  1. Use BetaFlight V4.3.0 RC1-RC3.
  2. Select the correct firmware: BETAFPVF4SX1280.
  3. Flash the flight controller with the latest released ELRS firmware.
  4. Flash the CLI and VTX configuration files provided by Darwinfpv.

Run Cam Nano 4 Camera Features

The Run Cam Nano 4 boasts a 1/3'' CMOS sensor, 2.1mm lens, and 800TVL resolution, ensuring true colors and clear low-light night vision performance.

1103 8000KV Brushless Motor

The 1103 8000KV Brushless Motor weighs only 3.7g. Despite its small size, it delivers impressive power and thrust, allowing up to 5 minutes of flight time. Note: The motor supports only 2S batteries. Connecting it to 3S batteries and pushing the throttle too much may cause permanent damage.

VTX006 Power and Flight Time

VTX006 offers 25-600mW output power, providing stable images and powerful transmission. Choose the perfect output power based on your FPV requirements (default setting at 400mW).

Updated Darwin AIO Flight Control(FC)

The new Darwin AIO features an integrated ELRS receiver, making it easier to apply to mini drones. The ESC uses Bluejay firmware and is compatible with 1-3S Lipo input, 15A continuous current, and 17A peak current.
