The AIO FC comes with ELRS_V1.0 pre-flashed. And we strongly advise everyone to stay on this version of the ELRS firmware until the BetaFlight 4.3 is officially released, as you may some bugs.
However, if you own a TX with a firmware ver. 2.x and wish to update the FC firmware, it can be done via BetaFlight V4.3.0 RC1-RC3.
Make sure you choose the right firmware, which is called — BETAFPVF4SX1280. After successfully flashing the flight controller with the latest officially released ELRS firmware, you need to flash the CLI and VTX configuration files. The following are the built-in receiver pairing tutorials and CLI files that need to be flashed after the update:

Darwin AIO 002 FC Pairing Tutorial:
Run Cam Nano 4 Camera
The Run Cam Nano 4 uses a 1/3” CMOS sensor, 2.1mm lens and 800TVL resolution for truer colors and clearer low-light night vision.

1103 8000KV Brushless motor
1103 8000KV Brushless motor is only 3.7g and it’s power and thrust are surprising, and the flight time can achieve about 5 Minutes. We have notice: the motor only supports 2S batteries, and if it is connected to 3S to push the throttle too much the motor will be permanently damaged.

VTX
VTX006 has 25-600mW output power and can provide stable images and powerful transmission. You can choose the perfect output power according to you FPV requirements. ( The default setting of the output power for Tiny Ape is 400mW).

Flight Control(FC)
This is an updated version of Darwin AIO. We integrated the ELRS receiver on the FC to make it easier to apply to mini drones. The ESC adopts Bluejay firmware, compatible with 1-3S Lipo input, 15A continuous current and 17A peak current. FC provides 2 sets of Uarts interfaces, and also provides various external device interfaces such as SBUS, Softserial, CTR, BUZZ, RGB, etc., which perfectly solves the problem of insufficient number of F411 Uarts.

The built-in receiver is an SPI protocol receiver, so you need to select SPI receiver support (SPI RX support) in the betaflight configurator.
Under normal circumstances, the checkbox on the betaflight configurator receiver is empty. If the betaflight configurator used is 10.8.0 and above, the checkbox should select “EXPRESSLRS”. As shown below.
