Review: Diatone Mamba DJI F722 MK2 Flight Controller

Diatone Mamba DJI F22 MK2 FC, a little bit of a mouthful, and its pinout is simply as sophisticated. But it’s a robust and feature-rich flight controller, and it helps each analog and DJI FPV systems.

New to FPV? You can learn more about flight controllers here.

FC + 4in1 ESC Combo: https://www.diatone.us/collections/dji/products/mamba-dji-f722-mk2-50a-6s-32bit-flight-controller-stack

It comes with equipment together with cables for the DJI Air Unit and 4in1 ESC, two kinds of rubber grommets of various stiffness (blue ones are barely softer), and a wiring diagram.

Note that within the longer 4in1 ESC cable, the wires will not be inserted within the plug? That truly means that you can re-arrange the wires within the appropriate order in case you might be utilizing a distinct model ESC. Such a pleasant contact and it’s tremendous useful!

The Mamba DJI F722 MK2 FC is suitable with DJI Air Unit with its built-in 9V 3A BEC and a devoted plug, so it’s principally plug and play. The pins are additionally damaged out to solder pads in case you wish to direct solder, which could turn out to be useful if you’re utilizing the Caddx Vista.

It additionally helps Betaflight OSD (with the onboard AT7456E chip), so you should use analog FPV system too.

It supoorts Blackbox logging with its onboard 16MB flash reminiscence, and there’s a devoted FPort pad (UART5).

The Mamba F722 MK2 FC makes use of USB-C port as a substitute of micro USB.

“LED” is without doubt one of the major themes of the Mamba DJI MK2 FC.

Firstly, there’s an array of LED indicators for monitoring all of your voltage rails (VCC, 3.3V, 5V, 95V, MCU, Gyro), which is the primary time I see this in a flight controller, and it’s fairly cool.

And they’ve put 4 separate LED_Strip, 5V and GND pads on the 4 corners of the board, I assume it’s for straightforward wiring should you plan to mount RGB LED on the arms. You may select to bypass Betaflight and management these LED’s colour and sample with a button instantly (situated subsequent to the boot button). You can accomplish that by bridging the LED pads.

Here’s the specification of the Mamba DJI F722 MK2 board:

  • MCU: STM32 F722RET6 processor
  • IMU (Gyro): MPU6000
  • Built-in barometer
  • Supports Betaflight OSD
  • 16MB Flash Memory for Blackbox logging
  • 6 UART’sLED Controller: BF LED/MB LED( 4 Set 2812 LED)
  • Input Voltage: 3S to 6S Lipo (12.6~25.2V)
  • TVS Protection
  • BEC: [email protected] / [email protected] / [email protected]
  • Weight: 9.3g
  • Dimension: 38x40x7.5mm
  • Mounting: 30.5mm x 30.5mm, M3 holes with rubber grommets
  • Betaflight firmware goal: DIAT/MAMBAF722_I2C (STM32F7X2)
  • Loaded firmware model: 4.2.4

Make positive you could have this wiring diagram when constructing your quad, as a result of the solder pads will not be labelled on the board!

Usually sq. pads signifies grounds (GND), however within the Mamba MK2 board, the sq. solder pads are literally voltage outputs, whereas the bottom pads are spherical similar to the indicators.

I’m utilizing this FC in a brand new construct. I’ll put a hyperlink to the construct log right here as soon as it’s achieved.
