The Typhoon F4 is compatible with Betaflight using the new MLTYPHF4 board target.
The F4 board mates directly with the VTX board with no external wiring between the two.

The Typhoon VTX is a self-contained video system, operating on filtered 5V provided by the Typhoon F4. The video is isolated from the PDB power distribution and delivers cleaner video.
The VTX board mates directly with the F4 controller board with no external wiring between the two.
Note: The VTX board is not powered from the USB input. The board should NOT be powered from lipo without an antenna connected.
The VTX controls are through the BetaFlight OSD functions using the RC transmitter. The VTX requires uploading a font through the Font Manager in BetaFlight Configurator. The only other control is the power selection switches. The settings for that are:
- SW1 ON, SW2 ON 25mW
- SW1 OFF, SW2 ON 200mW
- SW1 OFF, SW2 OFF 500mW
The VTX can also be configured while on USB power (the VTX is not powered) with Configurator using CLI commands vtx_band and vtx_channel.
The values (1-5) for vtx_band in CLI are:
- 1: Boscam A
- 2: Boscam B
- 3: Boscam E
- 4: Fatshark
- 5: Raceband
VTX_channel values are 1-8 for channel 1-8.
NOTE: The 3D print spacer are designed for Focus frame. If you use Typhoon FC and VTX on other frame you need to get 6mm spacer between the FC and VTX
