I have an unassembled Mini Tri, plus upgrades. Never got around to assembling it. Was not thinking of selling, but everybody has a price. What country are you in? How much are you willing to spend? Tempt me. I’m in the US Wisconsin.
Hobby King sells an sma extension from Immersion rc that is just for that issue. Click the link above. You can mount the board in a secure location and extend the attenna wire out. I don’t know of any signal reduction that would be significant.
Flite test has a good beginner series of videos. I learned a lot from them. Also, Alex Greve’s series. search you tube for him.
See if I can get the pics up:

I used this one to flash steveis 1.9 Pro, worked great
Cannot get the link, just copy and paste
The area between the frames where the wires have to move everytime you fold the booms is a problem for me. The wires are chafing already. If you could show precisely how to arrange them in that small space. I didn’t use that fiber sleeve over the wires, maybe that would help them slide in there.
I finished my build and attempted a maiden. Whoa, needs lots of trimming and because I am a raw newbie, it will take lots of crashing to get it under control. I wish there was a trainer landing gear like for the helis; e.g. long wire shocks with a ball at the end. (ordered a kit to adapt). I crash hard and break the zip ties every time. Gets old fast. Remember lots of us are newly inspired pilots. I hope my V3 lasts thru my learning curve. 🙂
