Airbot F3S AIO Flight Controller and Typhoon 4-in-1 ESC

This is a quick overview of the Airbot F3S AIO Flight controller and Typhoon 4-in-1 Pro ESC.

Overview

The F3S is an upgraded, F3 version, of the OZE32 which is a PDB, MinimOSD and flight controller all in one. I have a beta version of the F3s, the final version is gold plated.

The button on the top will switch the USB/UART between the flight controller and OSD. No more messing with dip switches, woohoo!

The integrated OSD is a MinimOSD, not directly connected to the flight controller. This board is compatible with the BetaFlight and CleanFlight SPRacingF3 targets.

The pro version has a MPU6050, which includes the gyro, accelerometer and magnetometer. There is a BMP280 barometer and 16MB of onboard flash.

On the bottom, we can see there is an AB7456 OSD chip, which is a more robust version of the MAX7456 chip with 2x the amount of character memory.

Typhoon 4-in-1 Pro ESC

The Typhoon 4-in-1 Pro ESC is awesome.

The pro version uses F396 MCUs and runs BLHeli.

Pinouts

Here is the F3S AIO Pinout:

The Typhoon 4-in-1 ESC Pinout:

Note that motors 3 and 4 are in the opposite positions expected by CleanFlight and BetaFlight, so be sure to swap those pins when plugging into the flight controller.

Mounting

We'll stack the ESC and the flight controller together.

Wire in the ESC.

The motor signal wires for the 4-in-1 ESC can be wired to the flight controller like so:

Wire power like so. The smaller, shorter leads will supply power to the 4-in-1 ESC.
