Premium Controller with Quality Parts and Features
Featuring F7 Processor and 45Amp BLheli32 with NewBeeDrone Smoov-certified hardware design that supports up to 3-6S batteries to provide the best and reliable quality and performance for either freestyle or racing.
Designed to support the DJI Air Unit.
Though DJI Air Unit can only support up to 4S, the Cricket200 Stack can make the DJI Air Unit compatible with 6S batteries by providing a 9V 16W clean power for the DJI Air Unit.
Plug-and-Play. No need to solder tiny wires.*
The Cricket200 Stack includes a bundle of wire to connect the Flight Controller and ESC and the wire to connect the Flight Controller to the DJI Air Unit.
*Only for full DJI systems. If you use Crossfire, you still need to solder.

I purchased the Newbeedrone Infinity200 and thought I would try the Cricket200 stack and compare the two.
In my opinion other then the Cricket200 having a few less number of UARTS both have an excellent build quality and similar performance.
It would be difficult to recommend one over the other, Both are excellent choice for a 3”-5” build.
I have 2 sets of these stacks, both are crazy easy to set up. The stack height on them is a little tricky in some cases do to the heat sink and the plugs, not impossible but depending on where you run wires, I've had to be mindful of it. Love them though. Strong performer.
Threw this stack into a CMW Massive Droner HD and been thrashing it about the yard. Freaking Timex quality - takes a licking, keeps on ticking! I would trust this stack to a 5" lightweight build no problem. In fact I've got a second one in the spares box that just might have to step to the mic...
Really compact, similar price to iFlight succex (which I’ve gone though too many)
Let’s see how it holds up?!
I used it with a dji AU and then it’s plug and play and it does what it has to do!
First try the drone flipped. Props, motor direction, mounting al good. Turned out that the yaw axe was 180 degrees off while the stack was facing forward. Adjusted in Betaflight, problem solved. Had multiple good flights sofar!
