The BETAFPV Lite brushed flight controller V2 is a brushed FC pre-flashed with a Silverware firmware. It also comes with an integrated Bayang protocol receiver and supports an external receiver with SBUS and DSMX protocols.

You could try it with Beta655 and other brushed drones for enthusiasts and supporters of the Silverware firmware. The stock firmware is grounded from the NFE Silverware, a top favorite for the ZERO board.

With its original design of an integrated OSD, users will find it really convenient to observe and witness the flying status and make necessary changes to the rate and PID configurations. Additionally, the board was created in 25mW VTX, where the VTX channels can be changed via the OSD menu. In a nutshell, this is a top-quality brushed flight controller for both seasoned FPV enthusiasts and newbies to the hobby.

For additional info, silverware is a firmware used by some micro quadrones that has the capability to support acro mode and level mode making this ideal in whoop FPV racing. Apart from that, it can also work with race mode angle, horizon mode, and racemode_horizon. This will also permit you to tweak your custom settings or modify the settings based on your own preferences. LiteOSD is also built-in in the V2 board, so you can configure it to whatever settings you want to quickly.

Additionally, as part of the FC's primary function, it can also change your drone's color of the two RGB LEDs. You can do this via the OSD menu, and it can make your gadget uniquely colorful. What's best is, it supports firmware upgrade through USB while in DFU mode. This makes it hassle-free for the pilots to always get the newest firmware.

Receiver Connection and the Binding Method

This FC joins in with the Bayang protocol receiver while supporting external receivers. The users can toggle between the receiver communication protocols straight from the FC button.

The status can be interpreted in 3 LED lights. Note that that receiver communication protocol is automatically saved when you power it down, and it will keep the same settings when you turn it on again. Here are the light indicators and what it means:

  • Power LED is solid red – this means that the power is turned on.
  • Receiver LED is blinking blue quickly – the binding status is in progress.
  • Receiver LED is blinking blue slowly – the binding connection is interrupted or discontinued.
  • Receiver LED is off – the binding process is complete and successful.

Integrated Bayang Receiver

The BETAFPV Lite brushed flight controller comes with the incorporated Bayang protocol receiver, so the communication protocol should also be correctly set as Bayang protocol. Here are the steps to either set it up initially or verify the current settings:

  1. Press the FC key on the bottom of the FC while plugging the battery.
  2. Let go of the FC after 4 seconds.
  3. Once ‘Bayang' is displayed on the OSD information screen, your FC will automatically receive the integrated Bayang receiver information.

If you need to bind, these are the steps that you need to follow:

  1. Turn on your FC board.
  2. The incorporated Bayang receiver will go through the automatic binding status.
  3. Once the binding is successfully done, the blue receiver LED will turn off.

SBUS Protocol

The communication protocol should be modified and set as SBUS protocol. Here are the steps to verify the settings:

  1. Press the FC button, which is on the bottom of the flight controller, and connect the battery simultaneously.
  2. Let go of the button.
  3. Press the FC button again for 4 seconds.
  4. Once the 'SBUS' displays on the OSD information screen, the flight controller will receive the external receiver data through the SBUS protocol.

DSMX Protocol

Similar to the SBUS protocol, the communication protocol should also be set to DSMX if you are using it as the receiver. The steps are relatively similar:

  1. Press the FC button, which is on the bottom of the flight controller, and connect the battery simultaneously.
  2. Let go of the button.
  3. Press the FC button twice within 4 seconds.
  4. Once the DSMX displays on the OSD information screen, the flight controller will receive the external receiver data through the SBUS protocol.

Among the world's first FC boards and also compatible with Silverware firmware, the BetaFpV Lite Brushed Controller is considered the most simple and affordable for whoop FPV racing enthusiasts.
