The Alien F3 Quad Brushed V1 is an flight controller designed to pilot Quadcopters using 7mm-8.5mm brushed motors. It features an ARM STM32 F3 processor, built in side USB for easy firmware flashing, and parameter editing, MPU6050 Gyro/Accelerometer, 9.5A ESCs, and a built in Bind button for hassle free transmitter binding.
The F3 Quad V1 Brushed can run Open Source CleanFlight Firmware Or the Betaflight Example F3 Brushed Quad Flight Controller Side USB – All boards are tested before shipping. to keep the price as low as possible motor plug and Spectrum plug are extra if needed .

Alien boards are unique in features, components, and design. Some designs share similar pinout and sensor orientation to make compatibility with MultiWii, Cleanflight, and other firmware.
Along with all of their project developers, I thank Arduino from which MultiWii was based upon. Alex for creating MultiWii, Timecop for the fork to Baseflight, and Dominic for the fork from Baseflight to Cleanflight.
~ Boris for the fork from Cleanflight to Betaflight, and RS2K for the fork from Betaflight to Raceflight.
Thank you Michael – MJ666 for getting the Alien’s key features and settings supported and working with Cleanflight, Betaflight, and Raceflight. Thanks for helping with V2 F3 SPI integration. Also for mentoring, being patient, and helping keep me on track when things get tough.
