EmuFlight

EmuFlight is flight controller software (firmware) used to fly multi-rotor craft.

This fork differs from Baseflight, Cleanflight and Betaflight in that it focuses on flight performance, innovative filtering, leading-edge feature additions, and wide target support.

News

Currently working on the first official release of EmuFlight. The Pegasus configurator will also be our official configurator in the coming months.

To get the latest updates as well as support from us, you can join our discord at https://discord.gg/gdP9CwE.

Features

EmuFlight has some of the following features:

  • Multi-color RGB LED strip support (each LED can be a different color using variable length WS2811 Addressable RGB strips - use for Orientation Indicators, Low Battery Warning, Flight Mode Status, Initialization Troubleshooting, etc)
  • DShot (150, 300, 600 and 1200), Multishot, and Oneshot (125 and 42) motor protocol support
  • Blackbox flight recorder logging (to onboard flash or external microSD card where equipped)

  • PWM, PPM, and Serial (SBus, SumH, SumD, Spektrum 1024/2048, XBus, etc) RX connection with failsafe detection
  • Multiple telemetry protocols (CSRF, FrSky, HoTT smart-port, MSP, etc)
  • RSSI via ADC - Uses ADC to read PWM RSSI signals, tested with FrSky D4R-II, X8R, X4R-SB, & XSR
  • OSD support & configuration without needing third-party OSD software/firmware/comm devices
  • OLED Displays - Display information on: Battery voltage/current/mAh, profile, rate profile, mode, version, sensors, etc
  • In-flight manual PID tuning and rate adjustment
  • Rate profiles and in-flight selection of them
  • Configurable serial ports for Serial RX, Telemetry, ESC telemetry, MSP, GPS, OSD, Sonar, etc - Use most devices on any port, softserial included
  • VTX support for Unify Pro and IRC Tramp
  • Latest IMUF filtering technology
