BetaFPV LiteRadio 3
BetaFPV Literadio 3 is the third generation radio controller in the LiteRadio series. It has upgraded design with the wider body. The gimbals were greatly upgraded and have adjustable length sticks. Internal battery is 2000mAh and provides up to 15 hours of working time. You can attach the radio to the neck strap as it has the hook next to the power button.
In comparison with LiteRadio 2 SE, the LiteRadio 3 is equipped with a 2000mAh 1S battery, allowing up to 15 working hours (without an external module). A Nano (JR lite) bay on the backside of the radio supports an external module (like ELRS Nano TX Module) with CRSF protocol. Also LiteRadio 3 gimbal is newly updated with an accurate potentiometer and adjustable stick ends.

I think it looks great and is gonna be enough of a radio for 99% of pilots. If those new gimbals really hold up and if ELRS continues to grow this rapidly, I don’t see a reason for anyone else to keep making any other radios 😄
