      EdgeTX Official Supported

      LiteRadio 3 Pro Radio Transmitter—An open-source radio remote control that supports the EdgeTX system, which is an open-source firmware for RC radio transmitters. The firmware is highly configurable and brings much more features than traditional radios. Therefore, you can try your best to customize LiteRadio 3 Pro such as language, voice and etc with the EdgeTX system.

      Note: Please click here to know more about EdgeTX operating system.

      OLED Display Screen

      OLED display screen with two 5D buttons is newly added to LiteRadio 3 Pro radio transmitter. Users can adjust the TX settings such as switching internal/external modules, gimbal calibration and binding on the screen by controlling 5D buttons. Compared with LiteRadio 3, it is easier to adjust such settings and very friendly to a new player.

      EdgeTX Passthrough for ELRS Upgrade

      With EdgeTX operating system, flashing ExpressLRS internal TX modules is easier for everyone. First, there is no need to disassemble the case. Compared with upgrading by WIFI, it is more convenient, fast, and stable to flash ELRS internal TX firmware by using EdgeTX passthrough flashing.

      Note: Please click here to know the upgrading steps. The passthrough is only used for ELRS 2.4G version. Currently, BETAFPV is actively communicating with the ExpressLRS official team on the latest ExpressLRS configurator to support flashing LiteRadio 3 Pro ELRS TX firmware.


      External TX Module

      Nano module bay enables the external TX module available. LiteRadio 3 Pro reaches a high level with its capability to support multi-brand external TX modules in the market for different protocols such as MULTI, CRSF, PPM, XJT, DSM2, and R9M, etc. BETAFPV ELRS Nano TX Module, which features a high refresh rate, ultra-low latency, and long-range, is strongly recommended for LiteRadio 3 Pro.

      Note: If you are ready to install the TBS external nano module, the TBS nano module case size should be 64*42*25mm, the thicker one of the retrofit cases.

      Hall Gimbal

      Features four precision bearings, adjustable spring tension, and ergonomic stick ends for an unparalleled feel. With an adjustable stick end, it perfectly fits thumbs and greatly improves the stick feel for the control.

        Confusing

        I'm new to this hobby. It took me a little bit to figure out how to flash firmware and install Lua script. But once you get the hang of it, it's not that bad.

        Great All-Around Radio

        Not my first BetaFPV radio, I liked my previous one, so I figured the screen will be even better.

        Very happy with the cc2500 model, so I can use a higher power ELRS module.

        Only issue was that I noticed this had some flickering with BetaFPV ELRS module. Will continue testing, but overall very happy so far.

        Great radio

        Got it about 2 months ago, love it so far. I upgraded from the Lite Radio (first edition) and there is a lot of improvement from the old model. Great feel in my hands, and I liked the gimbal sensitivity right out the box so I didn’t even need to adjust it. My only complaint is with the ordering process, it took almost a month to deliver to me and for the first two weeks I wasn’t even able to track the order after it had shipped. It was also very difficult to get in touch with the support team, when I emailed I didn’t hear back for about a week. Other than this inconvenience, I’m very happy with my purchase.

        Very Satisfied

        I purchased the Literadio 3 Pro one year ago and I can confirm this radio is performing really well. The internal 2.4 GHz antenna is not the best, so I replaced it with an u.FL to SMA pigtail and connected a mini Moxon antenna. I can do mid-range with this config (2 km obtaining -95 to -100 dBm). Gimballs are fine, radio is lightweight, battery lasts a lot and audio is too low as there is no openings for the speaker (this is not a problem for me as the radio includes vibration and any warning is enough with this). In general, very good radio giving you much more value for its cost.

        Convenient, lightweight and easy to understand, it’s a great option for a beginner. While I'm training in the simulator. Worth the money.
