@Adam Łangowicz The support for these bluetooth drivers in linux was discontinued by Mediatek... Exist people maintain it but, I am not tested it...

I can make a rpm if it works for you...

git clone https://github.com/loimu/rtbth-dkms.git rtbth-3.9.5
dnf -y install dkms
cp -rf rtbth-3.9.5 /usr/src/
cp -f rtbth-3.9.5/tools/ralink-bt.conf /etc/modprobe.d/


modprobe -r rtbth
modprobe rtbth
hcitool dev 
rfkill unblock bluetooth
