About the Firmware

The ExpressLRS official project on Github does NOT support the OLED function for the moment. BETAFPV team will work with the ELRS team and make the official repository support the OLED and button function ASAP.

    BETAFPV Micro TX Module ELRS V2.0.0 firmware is published. The firmware does not include the Binding Phrase. So please make sure the receiver works on officially major release V2.0.0 protocol and no Binding Phrase set.

    • Support 5D buttons and the OLED menu with the official ELRS 2.0.0 release.
    • The color of the LED changes automatically according to the system status.
    • Other new and various features are fully synchronized with the official ELRS 2.0.0.
    • When entering OLED menus page with long pressing, the connection between RF TX module and receiver works normally. Please do not change the Pkt Rate, otherwise, you must re-power the receiver.

    User manual of How to Flash Firmware of ELRS RX/TX.

    You could all use the ELRS official firmware V2.0-RC2 now, but lost the function of OLED and Joystick. We will work with the ELRS dev team and make the ELRS official firmware support the full function of the Micro TX Module. For the milestone, OLED will be supported in the V2.1 officially.

    https://github.com/ExpressLRS/ExpressLRS

    How do I set a binding phrase on this Micro TX module when the ELRS official mainstream does not support OLED yet?

    First, download the source code of master-betafpv-oled-menu branch to local from Github.

    Second, open the ExpressLRS Configurator and load the upzip source code from local. Select the target device "BETAFPV 900/2400 TX Micro". Now, you could setup your own binding phrase and other options as normal.

    Third, build & flash.

    Know More About ExpressLRS

    ExpressLRS is an open-source RC link for RC applications. Everyone could find this project on Github or join the discussion in Facebook Group.

    ExpressLRS is based on Semtech Lora SX127x or SX1280 hardware for RX and TX respectively. it aims to achieve the best possible link performance in both speeds, latency, and range. At 900 MHz a maximum of 200 Hz packet rate is supported. At 2.4 GHz a blistering 500Hz is currently supported with a custom OpenTX build. This makes ExpressLRS one of the fastest RC links available while still offering long-range performance.

    More and more vendors start to support the ExpressLRS radio protocol in different parts, like radio transmitter with ELRS in stock, drone with built-in ELRS receiver, ELRS TX module for JR bay, or Nano bay. BETAFPV team take part in this project and provide a series of ExpressLRS components.

    Backpack Function

    Some of the ExpressLRS TX modules include an additional ESP8285 chip, which lets us communicate wirelessly with other ESP8285 enabled devices using a protocol called espnow. We call this chip the "TX-Backpack". The aim of the TX-Backpack is to allow wireless communication between ExpressLRS, and other FPV related devices for command and control, or for querying config.

    https://github.com/ExpressLRS/Backpack/wiki

    Button and OLED

    The ELRS TX module could be configured via the OpenTX LUA script. With OLED and button, no-OpenTX radio controller that supports CRSF could use this ELRS Micro module easily. The following no-OpenTX radio controllers work well with this TX module. Futaba T16IZ, T16SZ and T18SZ (with update to 3.9e), Wsky ET16, Radiolink AT9S Pro.

    Note: All 5D button dimensions are available on BETAFPV ELRS V2.0.0 firmware. Please upgrade the firmware for new supports.

    Basic Configuration

    ExpressLRS uses the Crossfire serial protocol (AKA CRSF protocol) to communicate between the radio transmitter and the TX module. So make sure your radio transmitter supports the CRSF serial protocol. We use the radio transmitter with the OpenTX system to show how to set up the CRSF protocol and LUA script. To set this up, in the OpenTX system, enter into model settings, and on the "MODEL SETUP" tab, turn off the "Internal RF". Next, enable "External RF" and select "CRSF" as the protocol.

    ExpressLRS use the OpenTX LUA script to control the TX module, like bind or setup. With the LUA script, pilots could check, and set up some configurations of the Nano RF TX module. For more details, please check the Support Page.

    • Save the ELRS.lua/ELRSV2.lua script files onto the radio transmitter's SD Card in the Scripts/Tools folder;
    • Long press the "SYS" button (for RadioMaster T16 or similar radios) or the "Menu" button (for Frsky Taranis X9D or similar radios) to access the Tools Menu where you can find ELRS/ELRSV2.lua script ready to run with only one click;
    • Below image shows the LUA script run successfully;

    Great ELRS Tx module

    The betaFPV 1watt module is great. Mine shipped with a custom fork of the firmware, with the incorrect target name. This caused a warning message when flashing to ELRS 2.5, because the firmware target names were different. Otherwise, this module has been awesome. The 5D joystick and OLED screen now work natively with vanilla ELRS, so you can keep all the functionality this module offers and have all the latest features. The RGB cooling fan is pretty nice too, gives a little flare without being too over the top. Case has a nice bit of heft to it, and doesn't feel cheap compared to my ghost tx. all in all, great option for those looking to grab a 1watt module with a screen and joystick and don't want to spend a fortune.
