Cleanflight Backups of prebuilds we have done
Please note that these are full restore settings for Firmware listed.
These can be used as a base for your tune as well, however no two crafts fly the same due to many variables such as battery weight and other factors
These are also set up to mirror our Models from Taranis as per above, so please check all your modes/switches if using different transmitter/setup.

Eachine have been getting better at building Quads, but for the life of me I can’t understand why they still get so many basic things wrong.
Let me address some of them here as well as screenshots of all the default settings at the bottom. I will attempt to rectify and help Blade185 buyers fix most of the issues I have found. Continue reading “Eachine Blade 185 Review – Guide To How It Should of Been Setup With Cleanflight” »

The solution is to strip the motors apart, get a really hot container of water (boiling) and then jiggle it in until you get all dirt out.
I had to use a toothbrush in some parts (be careful) Continue reading “How to clean out your FPV Racing Motors from dirt or grass” »
For some strange reason which I have yet to identify… my ESC was powered when FC was hooked up to computer. This meant I could not drag sliders to MAX, plug in battery as when i dragged to max, the motor would spin and not engaged the calibration.
To solve this I had to do it a manual way using CLI commands. Continue reading “How to calibrate ESCs when your Flight Controller powers the ESC” »
Usually F3 boards will come with Cleanflight 1.9.0 and there has been a tonne of updates since then.
I tried flashing and kept getting the error “Communication with bootloader failed”
Download the latest Betaflight or Cleanflight from the website (at this time it is betaflight_2.6.1_SPRACINGF3.hex)
Then goto firmware on clean flight configuration tab and make sure you load the file then change the settings to this
-Full chip erase.
-Manual baud rate 256000.
Flash and it should work!
