FETtec F7 FC & FETtec 45a ESC

Skip to 2:32 for flight footage!

Important Information:
Do NOT power FC from esc AND apex regulator. Depin amd remove VBAT and GROUND wires that are at the end of the FC/ESC harness. When using a Regulator Board make sure to power the FC from the regulator only. (I use harness so I can switch between Onewire and Dshot using the GUI.Alt Tag
