Please note Seriously Pro Racing no longer manufacture this FC, so the version we sell is a ‘clone’ board.

The Seriously Pro Racing F3 EVO is the latest flight controller designed specifically for Cleanflight by none other than Cleanflight’s creator, Dominic Clifton. Like the other SP flight controllers, the EVO uses the latest F3 hardware and sensors to take full advantage of Cleanflight’s impressive list of features.

Within the SP product range the EVO sits under the F3 Mini, but considering the price difference there’s not a lot in it. The EVO uses the same next generation CPU and sensors as the SP Mini, so you’ll still going to get that incredible performance only delivered by an F3 flight controller. Like the SP Mini, the SP EVO also incorporates a MicroSD card socket for blackbox logging, and an IR transponder compatible with race timing systems as used at the World Drone Prix Dubai. It also boasts the same receivers compatibility, with PPM, SBUS and Spektrum DSMX supported without an inverter. Maybe its best selling point is its stackable design, which makes it plug and play with compatible OSD and PDB boards, including the new SP Racing F3 OSD/PDB.

For reference, the SP Mini features an in built BEC, which the EVO does not so you will need a 5v power supply BEC for it. The Mini also features a superior dual IR LED transponder system, while the EVO uses a single IR LED, and finally the SP Mini offers slightly more versatility in terms of connections than the EVO. That said, in terms of value for money, you simply can’t beat the EVO.

Mk 11 Version Updates: Slightly revised PCB for better power routing. New 2x high-current diodes instead of a single 500mAh dual diode and various other PCB changes for even better reliability.

Features

The SPRacingF3EVO has flight-controller features that make it the board of choice for any new multi-rotor build.

Jaw-Dropping Flight Performance

The SPRacingF3EVO uses advanced processor, sensor and software technologies to make your aircraft fly like it's on rails.

The SPRacingF3EVO flight-controller and the Cleanflight software enables the precision flying you need for fast FPV racing.

Next-Generation CPU

The SPRacingF3EVO has an ARM Cortex-M4 72Mhz CPU with Math co-processor (FPU) for efficient flight calculations that gets more done in less time.

Loop times up to ~2x as fast as previous-generation STM32F1 based boards.

SPI Sensor Connection

The gyroscope and accelerometer sensors are connected to the fast SPI bus. This enables the software to get more data even quicker to help stabilize your aircraft even better.

Race Timing Transponder

The SPRacingF3EVO features a race transponder system for recording your lap times. Each board comes with a special transponder code to identify you at race events. Compatible with i-LAP receiver systems.

MicroSD

The SPRacingF3EVO is the first and only standard size board for Cleanflight that features a MicroSD card socket for logging. Supports MicroSD/SDHC up to 32GB - just leave one in and log every flight!

USB

USB socket to configuration of flight controller and for pass-though configuration of BlHeli ESCs.

USB socket is not shared with any of the 3 serial ports. No more unplugging your OSD when configuring.

Configurable

The SPRacingF3EVO runs Cleanflight which can be configured to suit your needs using a cross-platform GUI (Windows/OSX/Linux).

Small and lightweight

The SPRacingF3EVO has a standard 36x36mm form-factor with 30.5mm mounting holes on a thick PCB for durability. 

Stackable

The SPRacingF3EVP is a stackable design. Connect an OSD or PDB directly under the board for a super-tidy and wire-free installation. Stackable designs are proven to be more durabel in a crash.

Broad RC receiver Support

Supports SBus, SumH, SumD, Spektrum1024/2048, XBus, PPM. No external inverters required (built-in), receiver powered via flight battery or USB for easy configuration.

Dedicated ports for PPM/SBus/SumH/etc for easy connections. Socket for plug and play Spektrum Satellite receiver (3.3volts).

Unique code

Each SPRacingF3EVO comes with a unique QR-CODE so you can download your personal transponder code.

Programmable LEDs

Output for multi-colored LED strips - great for FPV racing, line-of-sight flying orientation and night flying. (Currently mutually exclusive with the Transponder)

Developer Friendly

Developer friendly debugging port (SWD) and boot mode selection, unbrickable bootloader. 8 PWM output lines for ESCs and Servos. Arranged for easy wiring on standard pin headers.

OneShot ESC

Full support for OneShot ESCs for easy PID tuning and a sharper response.

Battery Monitoring

Built in battery voltage monitoring, input for additional current monitoring.

Sonar

Sonar support for precision low-altitude hold.

I2C Port

I2C port always powered, perfect for external sensors or always-on OLED Screen.

Buzzer

Buzzer port for audible warnings and notifications.

Cleanflight Logos

The SPRacingF3EVO features a copper-etched Cleanflight logo so you can show your support!

GPS Ready *

With a full-set of sensors (Accelerometer, Gryoscope, Compass and Barometer) each SPRacingF3EVO is capable of GPS Navigation.
* Available in Cleanflight soon, New GPS features under active development.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Design

Flexible board design and robust and easy wiring. 

  • Practical - Facilitates multiple installation scenarios: choose to use connectors, pin-headers or direct-solder ires
  • Durable - Though-hole connectors for all main I/O for crash-proof installation.
  • Stackable - Mount to compatible PDBS or OSDs using just 2 through-hole pins from each corner.
  • Compact - Entire board measures just 36x36mm.
  • Professional - Symmetrical, Neat and Tidy. 

Race Transponder

The SPRacingF3EVO features a race transponder timing system. As you fly around the track the FC continually transmits your unique code via IR. As your aircraft passes the start/finish timing gate the track-side receiver records your lap-time.

  • Compatible with iLAP receiver systems, as used by by most racing clubs worldwide.
  • One LED for attaching via flying lead.
  • Reduces your overall cost for a race-ready air-craft.
