Thanks to all of our customers for their support at this difficult time and stay safe.
This is the F3 Neo Flight Control Power Distribution Board (FC/PDB), which forms part of the Seriously Pro Neo Stack (FC/PDB + OSD/VTX).
The Seriously Pro Racing F3 NEO Stack comprises of two parts, a PDB/FC and an OSD/VTX board which stack together to form the core of your racing drone. The stacking design makes for an extremely compact and easy to install solution, with the minimal of solder connections and external cables required. For beginners it simplifies the build, for advanced race pilots it delivers one of the most powerful racing drone flight controllers on the market in a very compact package.
The Seriously Pro Racing F3 NEO board (SPRacingF3NEO) is a full-featured flight control board designed specifically for FPV racing quads. It uses the latest gyro technology and a next generation CPU to deliver unparalleled flight performance, while its integrated PDB and BECs make for a easy install. As a flight controller PDB, it supports every feature you'd need in a racing quads, such as: DShot ESCs, all main RX protocols without inverter, programmable LEDS, current monitoring, telemetry blackbox recording and iLap transponder race timing.
Easy Installation: The SPRacingF3NEO is the easiest system to install yet. Just solder 4 wires per-corner, solder on an XT60 battery connector and you're ready to fly.
Receiver, camera and VTX antenna can be connected via no-solder connectors so you spend less time building and more time flying.
Team-Race-Ready: Race features include race transponder support for lap-timing and a VTX that can be disabled remotely! The VTX can be off-by-default and turned on/off via a spare RC transmitter AUX channel - if your relay-race team pilot crashes they can turn off their VTX so you can fly on the same frequency! The iLap compatible race timing transponder system was used at the World Drone Prix and the Drone Nationals.
The NEO Stack comprises of two boards - each available separately. The NEO FC/PDB can be used on as a FC on its own, without the NEO OSD/VTX add-on board.
The height of the combined stack is just 15mm high!

Jaw-Dropping Flight Performance
The SPRacingF3NEO uses advanced processor, sensor and software technologies to make your aircraft fly like it's on rails.
Race Timing Transponder
The SPRacingF3NEO 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.
* IR LED and code available separately

The USB socket is not shared with any of the 5 serial ports.
Supports bi-directional and standard transmit-only telemetry systems including SmartPort/S.Port, HoTT, FrSky, Mavlink, IBus and LTM telemetry.
Telemetry enables audible and visible ground-station or receiver based alarms, warnings, information gathering and logging of FC data.
Measuring just 15mm high the NEO FPV stack allows for a low center of gravity and low profile frame which result in a quads with greater agility, control and speed than ever before.
It's no wonder frame designers world-wide are designing new frames to take advantage of the NEO FPV stack. Users of existing frames will find they are able to replace tall frame standoffs for much shorter ones.
The NEO features a boot button to allow easy setting of boot mode for firmware flashing of the device.
The VTX board even has a hole in the top to allow access to the boot button below it.
