The Stax Combo continues XILO's tradition of giving you high-quality FPV gear for a low price point. And it couldn't be easier to install and use on your favorite airframe!
Remove the mess of soldering and the chance of making a mistake during build time. The Stax plug n' play capability allows you to simply connect the FC and ESC with the included 8pin harness, simply wire up your motors and accessories, and you are good to go!
The F4 flight controller gives you proven rock solid processing power while the ICM20602 Gyro/Accelerometer (Up to 32KHz) gives accurate gyro information while in use. The 4-in-1 ESC uses F3 processing power to allow complex power management without a hitch. The ESC supports up to 6S input voltage while 45 amps continuous support gives you plenty of headroom to push your mini quads to the limit.
The XILO Stax FC has the unique ability to mount XM+ and Crossfire Nano style receivers directly to the FC. This saves space and makes for an overall cleaner build. If you are using a "slammed" style frame, this feature is very handy as the receiver won't add any additional height to your stack.
Another key feature on the Stax FC is the remote VTX power switch. With the XILO Stax flight controller, you are able to map a switch on your radio to turn on or off your VTX. This is useful when you are plugging in and don't want to broadcast video signal or you crashed your quad and want to prevent a roasted VTX. When a video transmitter isn't in flight it can quickly overheat due to lack of air flow, and this ability to control power can save you many burnt up VTXs.
The Stax uses standard 30.5x30.5 mounting hole configuration. The FC and ESC include M3 silicone mounting grommets to reduce vibrations to your gyro, ensuring accurate readings.
Other features such as OSD, telemetry, multiple UARTs, 5V pads, SBUS and PPM support, all come standard with the XILO Stax.
Whether you are looking for a stack for a brand new build or just freshen up an older quad, the XILO Stax will get the job done, without breaking the bank.
XILO, affordability redefined.

How to setup remote VTX power switch
The XILO Stax flight controller features a power pad for your video transmitter that can be remotely controlled via a switch setup in Betaflight. This allows you to remotely turn your VTX on or off from your radio! Simply solder your VTX to the corresponding pads on the Stax FC, (VTX, S/A, PWR, GND), the PWR pad will provide your VTX with filtered VBATT power. By default the pad will be powered on. Go into Beta to setup a switch if you want to control power on/off remotely. You will find it under "Modes" tab and "USER1" switch. Assign this to your AUX switch of your choosing to turn the power on/off for that PWR pad. Easy!
The stock firmware included on the boards is an older version of Betaflight 3.5.7 with an incorrect orientation of the gyro/accelerometer. Please download one of the firmware files above and manually flash the board with the latest 3.5.7, or 4.0 version of Betaflight. This will correct a few default settings for you.
The first shipment includes a 8 pin cable where the color of the cable does not match the pin out. The cable works fine as a plug and play solution between FC and ESC. Please note the coloring does not follow the pin layout. IE "red" is not voltage etc. If you plan to use this with a different FC or ESC, please take note of the pin mapping below as seen in the user manual.
