SpeedyBee Bluetooth Adapter

This simple SpeedyBee Bluetooth Adapter connects to your Betaflight FC and offers an extremely intuitive App wich actually looks like the Betaflight Configurator.

Where to buy

You can buy the SpeedyBee Bluetooth Adapter from this sites:

Open Source?

I ask myself, if this App shouldn’t be OpenSource because it works with Betaflight. Well, as soon as SpeedyBee don’t use any code from Betaflight (what they assured) its all good and the App can remain closed! =)

ANZEIGE:

The App

The App is pretty simple and if you are familiar with the Betaflight GUI, you will have no problem. By the way, there is a Demo mode, so you can test t before you buy it. You can also use a USB OTG cable to connect your phone to the FC. The app is free!

Download

You can download the app as .apk or via the Playstore/Applestore.

Whats not supported?

  • you can’t flash Firmware (SpeedyBee please add this feature!)
  • you can’t set your own ChannelMap (AETR1234) (SpeedyBee please add this feature!)
  • you can’t choose/upload the OSD font
  • you can’t upload custom OSD Logo

Conclusion

Wireless Adapters and Betaflight GUI Apps are not new, but this App ist awesome gives your a good user experience. This thing is a must have for every Betaflight user. I hope in the future we can flash our flight controller as well and they keep the App up to date so we can always use the latest Betaflight Firmware.
