It isn't a simple task to add full support for a new FC and there is a concern that we need to redo that to make it better before adding a lot more FC's.

I see that this FC has an F4 but it doesn't say which one (could be researched) so it's not obvious how much memory or speed it has.  FC dimensions are also not mentioned.

It appears that the baro has only has a +-1m resolution where the standard today is +-0.1m.  +-1m is not very good for baro or GPS flight modes.

That means it is really just an F4 racer FC less suited for GPS/baro flight modes.  It seems to me that F4 power is kind of wasted on racing where a lessor processor works well.  It does seem to have a current sensor and OSD and it is cheap.  I would try to use it with the firmware that already works on it.


It seems that @mr_w's F3 branch now supports this F4.

Omnibus F4 I am flying already. You can build mr_w/omnibus_f3_f4 branch from https://bitbucket.org/mindnever/librepilot.git.
I assume you know how to use git to add remote branch and switch to it.

Anyways, works just fine. Only thing is that you need to set UART1 from UavBrowser to S.bus, because there is no hardware page yet, but other things work fine.
This branch contains also other goodies, like fixed ASWA and ported super rate expo.

It flies really well, happens dev working on it is a racing guy :) Try it :)

P.S Here are my build from git instructions for this hardware https://forum.librepilot.org/index.php?topic=48.msg26090#msg26090
Under is the post from the dev who develops the branch and his video of FPV flying with it.

I guess you would be the first one to test it on fixed wing, but that's awesome, just what is needed.

I think the original Omnibus F4 is from Airbot.
But then there are a lot of derivatives Betaflight, HGLRC, FLIP, etc.... each flashable with Omnibus F4 firmware, as it is basically the same hardware.
As long as it says on hardware that it runs with Omnibus F4 firmware, then LP branch from mr_w will work.
