This is the new V1.5 version with IMU updated to MPU6000 and a re-designed and more reliable damping structure.
With Betaflight bringing to an end development for F3 flight controllers, now is the time to upgrade your old F1 or F3 FC to a latest generation F7 board, to future proof your setup and benefit from all of the new features being rolled out for F4 / F7 boards.
The Kakute series is Holybro's range of flight controllers and this F7 version is their most advanced yet. It employs the latest F7 F745 processor with support for cutting-edge features like 32k gyro sampling, along with a 6 axis gyro that is soft mounted to deliver unparalleled performance. The FC also features an onboard BMP280 Barometer and i2c port for connecting an external GPS / compass module, making it great for GPS applications like iNav or even Ardupilot. There's also an integrated OSD (On-Screen-Display) and a dataflash black box for recording telemetry data.
Holybro make two variants of the Kakute F7, a regular flight controller version, which is the one list here and also an AIO (All-In-One) board. The AIO board benefits from a current sensor and integrated power distribution board so you can solder your individual ESCs directly to it for a clean build. If you are using a 4-in-1 ESC then the standard (non-AIO) flight controller is the better option.
The Kakute F7 is a board designed for those that want the best, however suited to the pros and beginners alike thanks to a fantastic user manual which will guide you through the entire setup process.
- STM32F745 32-bit processor
- New high-performance / low-noise / high sensitivity IMU. ICM20689 with 6-axis gyro and accelerometer. Can run at up to 32 kHz
- Ready for autonomous flight: Integrated BMP280 barometer and SCL/SDA pads for use with external GPS/magnetometer units
- 6 hardware UARTS (UART1,2,3,4,6,7). All UARTS support hardware inversion. SBUS, SmartPort, and other inverted protocols work on any UART without "uninvert hack"
