KakuteF7 is a newer generation All-In-One flight controller of Holybro. It integrates flight controller (FC), power distribution board (PDB), and on-screen display (OSD) in one.

Benefits of KakuteF7 Compared to KakuteF4

•F7 is a faster processor (216MHz vs 168MHz of F4), the faster speed F7 processor allows for faster looptime in theory without overclocking like we do with F4 running 32KHz

•F7 offers more UART’s with built-in hardware inversion

•F7 has superscalar pipeline and DSP capabilities – basically that means the F7 is a better platform for future development that allows the developers to further optimize the flight controller algorithms

•Onboard Baro BMP280, Support more flight mode

•Support SD card for Blackbox logging

•I2C1 Pads for external compass connection
