Here’s another version of the ‘Toothpick’ style board layout. Diatone took it upon themselves to make this board and in good time too. The NamelessRC board was the first and is still good and reliable but the esc circuit design is a little dated. BetaFPV’s version cosmetically looks better and is also good, but has had a failure rate that is starting to become a little annoying for us to manage and customers to deal with. Diatone Mamba boards have a reputation for performing well while being surprisingly reliable and cost effective. We haven’t done extensive testing on this particular product yet but we have a long standing relationship with Diatone and really nothing has tarnished the reputation of their electronics so far.
As with all the other boards, we do NOT recommend 4S on this one either. They all work fine on 4S but will not perform optimally. Keep it to 3S and keep the AUW low. There isn’t any benefit to 4S if the AUW is low enough. Also, for some reason this batch doesn’t include power wires. You’ll need to provide your own 18awg silicone wire. You can use 20awg too if all you have lying around are spare motor wire clippings. Future batches will include the wire as well.

Bought this for a toothpick build. The board layout is awesome and it flies nice :)
The product is easy to use, laid out well. It has just been very challenging to tune on BF 4.1, even with rpm filtering. If I had it to do all over again, I would have ordered the nameless... I may end up doing that anyway.
Diatone makes good stuff and this FC is no different. The layout is good and the mounting holes are big enough to accommodate 24-26mm mounting with no filing. Flashing JESC gave me an issue when powering with 2S some of the ESCs failed. I ended up powering with 4S and reflashed with no issues.
Personally I find this board to be one of the best. Plus you can run Flightone FalcoX on it and to me it flys even better than betaflight does on these lightweight builds. So far my build with this fc has lasted me a couple months with no issues. I’ve killed a couple betafpv boards in the time that I’ve had this one. Now that fpvcycle is carrying these I will be ordering a couple from them soon!
Seems to be working fine
