Betaflight resource remapping with DSHOT

Since Betaflight 3.x.x there is possibility to remap your motor outputs. This allows you to use different pins in case some of them are broken.
There are few tutorials on youtube how to remap your outputs, but I found only one, which takes into account DSHOT.
Problem with remapping with DSHOT is that, not every flight controller output can be used as a DSHOT output.
But how to find which output can be used for DSHOT?

First, if you already made some changes to resources in CLI, revert them or re-flash your flight controller.
Depending on your board, select the quadcopter type with same amount of motors as yours.
I'm using SPRACINGF3EVO which has 8 motor outputs, so I selected "Octo Flat +"
Go to the CLI and run command "resource" and then "resource list"
Copy and whole output to the notepad

You should get something as follows, with importrant parts in BOLD.
# resource
resource BEEPER 1 C15
resource MOTOR 1 A00
resource MOTOR 2 A01
resource MOTOR 3 A02
resource MOTOR 4 A03
resource MOTOR 5 A06
resource MOTOR 6 A07
resource MOTOR 7 B00
resource MOTOR 8 B01
resource MOTOR 9 B10
resource MOTOR 10 B11
resource PPM 1 A15
resource LED_STRIP 1 A08
resource SERIAL_TX 1 A09
resource SERIAL_TX 2 A14
resource SERIAL_TX 3 B10
resource SERIAL_RX 1 A10
resource SERIAL_RX 2 A15
resource SERIAL_RX 3 B11

# resource list
A00: MOTOR 1
A01: MOTOR 2
A02: MOTOR 3
A03: MOTOR 4

DMA1 Channel 1: MOTOR 3
DMA1 Channel 2: MOTOR 7
DMA1 Channel 3: MOTOR 8
DMA1 Channel 4: FREE
DMA1 Channel 5: MOTOR 1
DMA1 Channel 6: MOTOR 5
DMA1 Channel 7: MOTOR 2
DMA2 Channel 1: FREE
DMA2 Channel 2: FREE
DMA2 Channel 3: FREE
DMA2 Channel 4: FREE
DMA2 Channel 5: FREE
Last part with the DMA... tells us, which MOTOR outputs can be used for DSHOT.
For my F3 EVO it's motor output 1,2,3,5,7 and 8.

My board had pins 1 and 2 broken, so I had to use 3,5,7 and 8.

Easiest way to map all motors correctly is to first free our DMA capable outputs (3,5,7 and 8).
You can do this with command:
resource MOTOR 3 none
resource MOTOR 5 none
resource MOTOR 7 none
resource MOTOR 8 none

Following image shows default motor numbering for betaflight.
Let's start with MOTOR 1. Check to which pin is this motor soldered to.
If you soldered that motor to ouput number 7, you have to go back to your notepad and look for the first part of the output for the MOTOR 7 - I know, this is little bit confusing.
For me it was: resource MOTOR 7 B00
In this case we're looking for the last code - B00 which is identifier of the output 7.
To assign this output run cli command
resource MOTOR 1 B00
Repeat this for all 4 motors and then enter save, reboot the board and you're all set!


  1. What actually is this MOTOR all about? Also share the basic introduction of about this, because this is something new to me. Thank you.

IBUS with CC3D and CleanFlight/BetaFlight - Eachine 250 Racer

I finally managed to get IBUS working on my Eachine 250 Racer (ER250) and here's how! IBUS is digital communication protocol of FlySky/Turnigy controllers. I'm using FlySky FS-i6 with FS-iA6B receiver, but I guess you can use this guide also for SBUS and others. Connecting to CC3D  First, you need to use different connector. If you are currently using PWM or PPM on your receiver, you probably use 8 pin connector. For IBUS you need 4 pin FLEX or MAIN connector. Note: I don't use default ER250 position of CC3D, i rotated it -90°so I can access USB from the side. With ER250 you'll get the all needed cables. I already switched the connector on the receiver side so instead of 4 separate cables I have only 2 (blue is not connected). I'm using MAIN port, as FLEX port is on the side of battery tray in my settup. Black is GND, Red +5V, Yellow RX, Blue TX (not connected)  CleanFlight setup Note :  On older versions of CF/BF there is no is a scam

In case you get an email from with a message that you bought something beware, it's a scam. Recently one of my friends got following (localized) email: Basically an order confirmation of buying some voucher which costs 80$. Interesting was that it had a valid name, phone and address. First we thought it's just a spam using some stolen database of contacts, but recently the goods actually arrived. Luckily he didn't accept the package. I didn't found any information online except this french reviews ( ) saying basically the same, that they got packages just by filling contact form. Hope I stop someone from throwing away money.
