Cleanflight is about creating awesome, FREE, flight-stabilization software which is used primarily for FPV Drone Racing and Acrobatic Drone/Quadcopter flying.  It also supports model airplanes/fixed-wing and other model types too.

You can get Cleanflight and read more about it here:https://github.com/cleanflight/cleanflight

One of the primary goals of Cleanflight is not just to make awesome free software, but also to make maintainable, easy to understand and work on code to encourage other developers and the community to contribute to the project.

The goal of community involvement has largely been achieved, as the 1250+ forks on Github shows, but now the sheer size of the community and it's popularity is a source of troubles, everyone wants everything and they all want it better, faster and yesterday!

In order to keep up with the pace of development demanded by the community we rely on equipment and donations from the users of the software.  We also need a place where those in the industry that supply Cleanflight on their products have a way of giving back to the project so that more time can be spent writing code and supporting the users.  Without donations we can't afford to spend as much time working on it as we'd like.

In the world we live in free software still has costs, primarily in developer time, but also in other areas such as computers, batteries, props, frames, motors, ESCs, nuts, bolts and other kit required in order to test the software, we also have to pay bills for internet hosting, electricity and such like.

By creating this page we hope that you will consider helping out the project - ask yourself this:  Are you happy that someone out there was able to design build and manufacture all your FPV and RC Model gear for you? Are you happy that with your purchase they can continue to design build and manufacture even more cool, new and better stuff for you?  And then ask yourself if you think it would be nice to give something back to the developers that created the software that makes flying it even possible?  After-all, without that software your shiny new race quad would be a lifeless hunk of carbon-fiber, plastic and metal, unable to bring you the joy we know it does!

Goals
$10 of $100 per month
Developers on the Cleanflight project need test equipment to make sure that their code works with various different items of hardware.  We need funds to buy things like the latest ESCs, receivers, flight-controllers, LEDs, transponder receivers, etc.  We also need test equipment like multimeters, oscilloscopes, RF meters, etc.  There are various other expenses, like postage, travel, stickers, the cost of which all adds up significantly.

Your donation will go along way to making sure we have the equipment and facilities we need and so that we can attend events to keep in touch with all the users to make Cleanflight even better!
