    Yes the Colibri Race.

    Is there a barometer/altimeter/pressure sensor on this board?


    No, this board was designed to be streamlined and focused for racing and freestyle.

    this is exactly the option you need to choose. It is already installed on each Lux flight controller. To update to a newer version or restore your flight controller, select this option.

    Hydra(Dominic Clifton) and/or one or many of the contributors to Cleanflight has recently renamed the RACE target to its full name, COLIBRI RACE. This change happened very recently. I apologize for any confusion.

    So your FC and the TBS COLIBRI RACE FC share one target?

    +1, this was what I was really curious about? Does this mean the Luminier FC was made in collaboration with TBS or Hydra?

    I guess they just use the same hardware parts.

    Will this work with an external blackbox?

    No. We saw the target, liked what it looked like, but changed a few things. Lux is Colibri compliant - meaning you can flash Colibri hex file to the Lux, just how you can flash Cleanflight to a CC3D(originally designed to run OpenPilot).

    Yes, the two main parts (STM32F303RC, MPU6500) are the same. The rest is up to the Flight Controller developers. Analogous to how Land Rover uses a Jaguar V8 engine... a Land Rover isn't a Jaguar... just the engine. But in this case STMicroelectronics designed the engine, instead of TBS(or lumenier etc.).

    Lux simply piggybacks on an existing target. It's less work for the developers to maintain only one target. We've included features that have absolutely nothing to do with the target, such as the FRSky RC filter, voltage regulation, physical layout etc.

    Yes, this is in the manual.

    Thanks for the detailed answers, chatch. I'm definitely going to order one (or two).

    BTW, Joshua Bardwell made a video about his impression of the Lux, and this guy definitely knows what he's talking about:

    Subscribed. FC looks great design wise. If it flies well and is durable in racing crashes this could be the FC to get. Great price too!
