BetaFPV ELRS Lite Receiver ExpressLRS RX 2.4G Flat Antenna V1.1
BETAFPV Lite receiver is based on the ExpressLRS project, an open-source RC link for RC applications. ExpressLRS aims to achieve the best possible link performance in both speeds, latency, and range. This makes ExpressLRS one of the fastest RC links available while still offering long-range performance.
Nano RX or Lite RX
What is the major difference between Nano receiver and Lite receiver?
Nano receiver (2.4G version) is the first and (so far) the only receiver with power amplifier (PA+LNA). It has 100mW telemetry output and better sensitivity when longer range. Lite receiver doesn't have a PA/LNA on them, so its telemetry power is as what the RF chip SX1280 came with 17mW.
Beside, Nano receiver comes with normal external Dipole T antenna. Lite receiver has SMD ceramic antenna and in theory it is not so long range.
High recommend the Nano receiver if the space is enough. On 65-85mm whoop drones with limited space and need light weight, Lite receiver is a better choice.
Tower Antenna or Flat Antenna
New lite receiver with a flat antenna features a 3mm extra-thin board and 0.53g lightweight, which requires less assembly space on drones with limited space. Besides, solid flat antenna without irregular parts can withstand crashes, making the receiver not so fragile.
Whatever tower antenna or flat antenna, both versions perform well in control, range and stability, bringing a good flight experience to pilots. Below chart is the basic information for two antennas. It is shown that both antennas have almost the same performance in gain. However, the efficiency for flat antenna is better than tower antenna. In spite of that, tower antenna and flat antenna V1.1 can reach about 600 meters by equal conditions.

Flat Antenna V1.0 & V1.1
The ELRS Lite Receiver flat antenna V1.1 is coming to see you again. Range issues and failsafe at around 100 meters have been resolved compared with V1.0. Now, the V1.1 flat antenna receiver can reach 600 meters with BETAFPV Moxon TX Antenna (using BETAFPV Nano TX module).
Previously, the flat antenna V1.0 led to the failsafe at around 100 meters with an RSSI of -95dBm of this receiver, which did not reach the expected range compared with the beta version. However, it works great for indoor whooping and racing.
For customers who bought this receiver before March 2022 and have issues with it, we will refund you or send you a new one that fixes range issues.

Lite receiver with flat antenna 2.4G version diagram as shown below.
Note: The firmware version of the Lite receiver tower antenna or flat antenna v1.1 manufactured by our company is ELRS 2.0.0; ELRS Innovative team has officially released version 2.4.0. If you want to flash ELRS official firmware, please download the latest ExpressLRS-Configurator. Significantly, the TX module and receiver have to be in the same ELRS version, otherwise, the frequency cannot match successfully.
The Lite receiver comes with offically major release V2.0.0 protocol and no Binding Phrase inlcuded. Lite receiver could enter binding status by power on/off three times.
- Plugin and unplug Lite receiver three times;
- Make sure the LED is doing a quick double blink, which indicates the receiver is in bind mode;
- Make sure the RF TX module or radio transmitter enter binding status, which sends out a binding pulse;
- If the receiver has a solid light, it's bound.
Note: Binding once and the receiver will store the binding information. Re-power and the connect successfully auto.
Note: If you reflash firmware of the receiver with your own Binding Phrase, please make sure the TX module has the same Binding Phrase. The RF TX module and the receiver will bind automatically in this situation.
