The SmartWay to set up SmartAudio
Updated: Jan 10
This blog explains how to set up smart audio in Betaflight.
Go to the ports tab and select VTX in the peripherals tab. Select Smart Audio TBS.
Now enable expert mode.
Now go to the Video Transmitter Tab.
You will see on the right-hand side that there is a table. It should say device ready yes.
If it doesn’t don’t proceed. You can see here that it says NO on mine. Make sure your props are off, unplug and power on with quad with a lipo. Then plug back in and it should say yes. Also make sure your ports Tab is set up correctly and that the VTX is set up on the right peripherals tab.
Once that is done, you can load up the VTX table.
I have a CLI dump here you can use. The VTX I use is the Rush Tank Ultimate Plus.
VTX Table to enter in CLI. Or find the correct example using the link at the top of the VTX page.
