    @jihlein- you say the LR doesn’t “behave as nicely” as the earlier models, could this be from the thinner arms?
    I remember reading here & seeing a couple of clips on YT of other LR Tri’s suffering from bad vibrations which seemed to be fixed/reduced by doubling arm thickness & going to 7inch tri-blade props rather than 8×2’s & it did seem to clean up the onboard footage…
    Im yet to finish my LR Tri but am heading down this same path having ordered spare arms & used E6000, a rubbery glue, between the arms.
    Hoping to get this finished soon enough that I can help in bug reporting the current software(s).
    Currently waiting an a Matek F405Wing All-in-one FC & some Speedix LS40 ‘Slim’ ESC’s to go with the 2407 motors I already have…

    Meanwhile, tri-ing to work out how to use Fushion360 so I can edit the Baby Tri as Ive had an idea about inverting the tail by extending the top-plate to form the tail- but thats a subject for elsewhere…

    So, the question was, before I got sidetracked, could it be the thin arms causing troubles with flight characteristics when compared to earlier Tri’s?

    Ive wondered if sending a set of Davids feedback servos to one of the developers- possibly Pawel Spychalski, along with a link to the ‘TriNav’ development so far mightconvince the iNav devs to look further into adding it to iNav properly….
    They’re on special at the moment- anyone want to go shares???

    That file of yours jihlein….I would be able to convert/re-assign/re-map it to run on Matek F405Wing when I finally finish my ‘LR Tri’ build???
    Will first be setting it up on dRonin & getting everything working properly before experimenting with ‘TriNav’…
    Cheers for advice! šŸ˜‰

    From memory, BF dropped servo support from there code back somewhere around 32 or 3.3 (I think)…
    If you want to run BF you’ll need to go back to an older version of BF that was being worked on by another forum member….
    Or, cross your fingers & hope that servo feedback gets picked up by iNav- mine are! :v šŸ˜‰

    Added my name to the comments, if that helps at all…?
    Had to join first, still dunno how their site works so I hope I didnt miss a button or something….lol!

    Will there be a servo for camera- to try & counter the body pitching to some extent?
    From a spectators view, it would kind of float on point like the barrel of a tank when it covers rough ground- would give it even more a alien-esk presence… šŸ˜€ šŸ˜‰

    Hmmm… F411 wedged between two Tri/Mini-Tri V4 carbon base plates with holes drilled at needed spacing’s for short allen bolt & F/C wedged between rubber grommets for soft-mounts….
    Would arms clear inside though???
    Sounds pretty sweet, but I DO like the idea of a separate PBD- for one, the F/C can be swapped out when time to upgrade or if something passes quality control that shouldn’t have… šŸ˜‰
    Im probably of topic again slightly, sorry….

    I like how the Kakuta boards have their gyro, except the ribbon can’t be extended which would would make possible mounting Gyro remotely to board to achieve perfect COG mass-point “null”, or near to it like current F3 TriFC, yet also allow mounting the FC itself in a slightly more convenient position…..

    I do like the Matek boards, but pretty much due to their PDB- the Matek Wing PDB would be near perfect…

    As to having enough PWM outputs, I kinda feel all the F4’s are a bit lacking & another good reason to ‘future-proof’ by going straight to F7- iNav did something & now runs much better on F7 than previous to version 2.0 & Ive heard Betaflight did something to improve running on F7 as well…

    Random thoughts Ive had on tricopters & bits & thought here & now might be a good place to share ’em…
    Thanks for the work you guys are doing, still working towards an RCE Mini-Tri of my own one day… šŸ˜€

    Did you manage to capture any of it doing it’s reversing conniption fits for us to try & figure out a fix for???
    Would it be possible or is there limitations due to how slo-mo camera requires setting up?

    1) Would there be the possibility to add support for FPV at some point?

    I was pondering the same thing & thinking a 3rd servo would be needed for the camera & then you’d most likely require an OSD to help reference when level….
    Might actually look cooler/more-alien-esk with a servo out front always remaining level-ish! šŸ˜€

    4) I realize that the F3FC is tried and tested component but I also realize that F3 boards have memory limitations which can hinder Triflights further development. Is there an F4FC on the horizon?

    “No F4FC plans at the moment but that might change……………Would also be nice to try some other FCā€™s to see if they are compatible.”

    Ive been thinking going for F4 wouldn’t be worth it as it’s headed towards redundancy like F1 & F3 & that an F7 Matek & their wing PDB would be a good in a Tricopter- would just need use two carbon plates & attempt to sandwich as much as possible together…
    I doubt there would be enough room for a larger PBD in the Bi-copter though! :v

    @ LitterBug…
    Speaking of micro-tri’s, have you seen the “Awesome Dragonfly” 110 Y4?
    I keep thinking remove rear two motors, zip/cable tie in a servo between two plate (IF there’s room) & then design & print a motor mount to go on servo…
    Personally, I’d ditch the 4-in-1 ESC’s for some on the arms to save room- hopefully -to fit a RunCam Split Micro…
    Wish I had the spare cash to experiment- perhaps an idea for someone else & let us know if its worth it??? šŸ˜‰
