Betaflight Configurator


Crowdin Build Status Quality Gate Status Build Status

Betaflight Configurator is a crossplatform configuration tool for the Betaflight flight control system.

It runs as an app within Google Chrome and allows you to configure the Betaflight software running on any supported Betaflight target.

There is also now a standalone version available, since Google Chrome Apps are getting deprecated on platforms that aren't Chrome OS. Downloads are available in Releases.

Various types of aircraft are supported by the tool and by Betaflight, e.g. quadcopters, hexacopters, octocopters and fixed-wing aircraft.


Betaflight Configurator is a fork of the Cleanflight Configurator with support for Betaflight instead of Cleanflight.

This configurator is the only configurator with support for Betaflight specific features. It will likely require that you run the latest firmware on the flight controller. If you are experiencing any problems please make sure you are running the latest firmware version.



This is the default installation method, and at some point in the future this will become the only way available for most platforms. Please use this method whenever possible.

Download the installer from Releases.

Note for MacOS X users

Changes to the security model used in the latest versions of MacOS X 10.14 (Mojave) and 10.15 (Catalina) mean that the operating system will show an error message ('"Betaflight Configurator.app" is damaged and can’t be opened. You should move it to the Trash.') when trying to install the application. To work around this, run the following command in a terminal after installing: sudo xattr -rd com.apple.quarantine /Applications/Betaflight\ Configurator.app.

Via Chrome Web Store (for ChromeOS)

available in the Chrome web store for Chromeos

  1. Visit the Betaflight Configurator product page in the Chrome web store
  2. Click + Add to Chrome

Please note - the application will automatically update itself when new versions are released. Please ensure you maintain configuration backups as described in the Betaflight documentation.

(A deprecated legacy version for all platforms is also available here.)

Unstable Testing Versions

Unstable testing versions of the lates builds of the configurator for most platforms can be downloaded from here.

Be aware that these versions are intended for testing / feedback only, and may be buggy or broken, and can cause flight controller settings to be corrupted. Caution is advised when using these versions.

Native app build via NW.js


  1. Install node.js (version 10 required)
  2. Install yarn: npm install yarn -g
  3. Change to project folder and run yarn install.
  4. Run yarn start.

Running tests

yarn test

App build and release

The tasks are defined in gulpfile.js and can be run with through yarn:

yarn gulp <taskname> [[platform] [platform] ...]

List of possible values of <task-name>:

  • dist copies all the JS and CSS files in the ./dist folder.
  • apps builds the apps in the ./apps folder [1].
  • debug builds debug version of the apps in the ./debug folder [1].
  • release zips up the apps into individual archives in the ./release folder [1].

[1] Running this task on macOS or Linux requires Wine, since it's needed to set the icon for the Windows app (build for specific platform to avoid errors).

Build or release app for one specific platform

To build or release only for one specific platform you can append the plaform after the task-name. If no platform is provided, all the platforms will be done in sequence.

  • MacOS X use yarn gulp <task-name> --osx64
  • Linux use yarn gulp <task-name> --linux64
  • Windows use yarn gulp <task-name> --win32
  • ChromeOS use yarn gulp <task-name> --chromeos

You can also use multiple platforms e.g. yarn gulp <taskname> --osx64 --linux64.


Betaflight Configurator has been translated into several languages. The application will try to detect and use your system language if a translation into this language is available. You can help translating the application into your language.

If you prefer to have the application in English or any other language, you can select your desired language in the first screen of the application.


Graphics Issues

If you experience graphics display problems or smudged/dithered fonts display issues in Betaflight Configurator, try invoking the betaflight-configurator executable file with the --disable-gpu command line switch. This will switch off hardware graphics acceleration. Likewise, setting your graphics card antialiasing option to OFF (e.g. FXAA parameter on NVidia graphics cards) might be a remedy as well.

Linux users

In most Linux distributions your user won't have access to serial interfaces by default. To add this access right type the following command in a terminal, log out your user and log in again:

sudo usermod -aG dialout ${USER}

Linux / MacOS X users

If you have 3D model animation problems, enable "Override software rendering list" in Chrome flags chrome://flags/#ignore-gpu-blacklist
