RaceFlight Revolt



Revolt

The RaceFlight Revolt flight controller is the most advanced, performance driven, flight controller ever designed. Capable of running 32kHz gyro sample and PID loop, the Revolt is truly at the top of its class. The Revolt uses a F405 MPU and a super secret gyro (SSG) in combination with RaceFlight software to give you the BEST performance possible.

Performance

The Revolt presents not only the BEST performance, but also the most STABLE performance due to the amazing vibration rejection technology implemented in RaceFlight. Our filters allow your quad to stay in the air no matter what! Damaged propellers caused by that insane gate clip on turn 3? Not a problem. You can still finish the race!

In addition to the vibration rejection technology, the SSG gives you the highest speeds currently possible with the lowest noise floor and highest sensitivity. The SSG has never been used in any flight controller before and definitely gives you the leading advantage over others.

Setup Simplicity

Simply install the Revolt onto your quad and get in the air right away – without the need for complicated tuning. The Revolt comes pre-configured with our latest official release of RaceFlight software for either FrSky or Spektrum (though it can be used on other receiver protocol brands as well). The solder pin layout is easy to read with motor connections in each corner. Just solder the closest motors and remember the order 1, 2, 3, 4.

Zadig and other complicated driver configuration tools are a thing of the past with the Revolt’s new driverless installation technology. Tired of messing around with Zadig or DFU to update your software? We were too, that’s why you no longer have to worry about messing around with them. The Revolt also features DFU free updating and a self-healing and updating bootloader, just in case something does go wrong.

Soldering the Revolt

 

The Revolt is very easy to solder and setup. The pin-through holes double as pads to easily solder wires to. Simply solder the closest corner pads labeled M1, M2, M3, or M4.

 

The Revolt requires a 5v BEC for power. The pads on the bottom of the board can be bridged for 5V or 3v3V to match the power requirement for your receiver.

 

If you are using the BB firmware, then make sure to put your inverted SBUS signal on TX1 and bridge the INV and TX1 pads. For everything else you can use TX3 for Spektrum, IBUS, etc.

 

If you are using RF1 firmware, you can solder any receiver to either TX1 or TX4 and choose whether or not the signal is inverted by bridging INV and TX or NOR (not inverted/normal) and TX.

 

The Revolt also  has the ability to power an LED light and a buzzer. Simply follow the PINOUT diagrams below for a comprehensive look at how you can connect everything to the Revolt.
