Happymodel ELRS F4 2G4 AIO 5in1 Flight controller built-in SPI 2.4GHz ELRS Receiver
The world’s first AIO 5in1 F4 flight controller with integrated SPI 2.4GHz ExpressLRS receiver has been launched.The flight controller integrates SPI controlled 2.4GHz ExpressLRS receiver, Dshot protocol 4-in-1 ESC, 5.8GHz 40ch video transmitter and Betaflight OSD. Ultra-small size and ultra-stable remote control range can improve the range of the original SPI receiver. And because the 2.4GHz ExpressLRS receiver is equipped with the SX1280 radio frequency chip with high sensitivity, high packet rate and low latency, this flight controller is the one that all Race/Freestyle pilots needed. It is suitable for use in Tiny whoop Race or Toothpick Freestyle, and can also be used in 1S ultra-lightweight Nano Long Range platform.

1.Power the flight controller by connecting USB. Please make sure that the port driver of the flight controller is correctly installed on the computer, then open Betaflight Configurator(Latest version) to connect, enter to the “receiver” interface, and then click “Bind Receiver”, the red LED at the bottom of the flight controller will flash quickly, which means that the SPI ELRS receiver enters the bind mode. There is another way to make the receiver enter the bind mode: after connecting to the Betaflight configurator, move to the CLI interface and enter “bind_rx” in the command line.
2.After correctly connecting the ES24TX or ES24TX Lite/Slim module or DIY 2.4G ELRS TX module to your Opentx radio transmitter, copy the latest version of ELRS.LUA file to the SD card in the remote controller. The directory is “SD Card/Scripts/tools”, Then run ELRS.LUA and upgrade the specified TX frimware through Wifi, and then click “bind” to link with the SPI ExpressLRS receiver. Note: You need to adjust the Packet Rate to 500Hz from the ELRS interface of your radio controller before binding.
3.After the binding is successful, the Red LED at the bottom of the flight controller will getting to be solid, and the telemetry can be received at the same time.
4.The meaning of the LED status of the SPI receiver: the LED is getting to be solid, indicating that the bind is successful or the connection and communication is normal, the LED flashing quickly indicates that the receiver is in binding mode, and the LED flashing slowly indicates that the there is no signal received from the radio controller.
1*AIO 5in1 Flight Controller build in Receiver
Since Betaflight has not yet released the official firmware that could supports the SPI Expresslrs protocol, the current version is the Beta version .
Betaflight will update it to their official target soon. Please feel free to contact with us if you have any issues with this Beta version Firmware
Firmware download: ELRS F4 2G4_Betaflight_4.3.0_STM32F411_1.0.0-RC5 and Diff Document
ExpressLRS TX firmware(which could bind with ELRS F4 2G4) download: ELRS F4 2G4 TX Firmware RC3
This is the correct interface of 2.4GHz TX module that could bind with ELRS F4 2G4 flight controller
After getting everything hooked up, I noticed motor1 was not spinning properly. I switched it out with one of the other motors that was working and it had the same issue. The problem was a small bridge of solder between the pins for the motor plug on the board.
I used some wire cutters and a hobby knife to clear the bridge and everything is working fine. Several flights and a few crashes with no issues so far.
It makes the build super clean, especially with the ceramic antenna!
