Right, From Triflight 0.5, used the cleanflight configurator to flash the dRonin .hex file for f3fc from the post on 23rd December, using the dRonin GCS from the same build, used rescue button to flash the rescue file posted on 24th, I also erased the settings partition for good measure, am still getting this:
Anyone know where I’m going wrong here?
OK reverted the spare board back to TriFlight 0.5 to test it and it won’t boot on that either, so my boot loop is probably a hardware fault.
I tried to flash my newly rebuilt tricopter with a fresh FC on it, and it still doesn’t work though, so I’m probably doing something wrong. I’ll experiment with it a bit when i’m more awake
Yep I’m finding that. When the legs work they work really well, I have cracked them a couple of times though, always in the part the clips to the boom, not the springy legs themselves.
Printer is down for maintenance so will get some ABS and try it with that once its back up.
I will also test with my spare board over the weekend and try the above suggestions
Still stuck in a boot loop after flashing that, assuming i did it right. I’ll try it another couple of times.
I’m happy to send you my extra one if you don’t mind putting up with the dodgy USB port. I’m UK based if that helps
Confirmed, MY integrated F3FC is also apparently stuck in a boot loop after flashing dRonin for f3fc
Yeah I’ll see if I can persuade it to work long enough to flash it and connect to it. I’ll also keep an eye out for something with a working USB socket I can salvage and change it out
I could also send you the board I just replaced, though it has a temperamental USB port and is a bit beaten up. I’d only ever flown a whoop before building it a couple of years ago and it’s had a few arboreal arguments in its time but still just about goes. I was gonna reflow it and keep it as a spare for my mini-tri as that still has a naze on it.
Thanks! Already broke one but I suspect that this will work better in TPU instead of PLA.
Yeah I’m on the integrated FC. dRonin sounds really interesting as I’d like to have access to a decent GPS hold. If that does get properly ported to the integrated FC I’m certainly willing to give it a go. I did also try iNav a while back and couldn’t get that working .
I just reverted back to Triflight 0.5 again to make sure I hadn’t made a mistake while rebuilding the hardware, and it’s flying fine on that. I’d like to see if anyone else is testing the V4 on the new firmware and get some joy out of it as the betaflight based ones are just eating all my props.
Tried the same with stock PIDs to see what would happen and it doesn’t get off the ground in still air before oscillating and trying to do a high speed roll on the ground.
I just rebuilt my Tricopter V4 with a new FC so decided to reflash to Triflight 0.7 beta 3 while I was at it. Test hover was ok in gentle breezes so I took it to some open land to complete the in-air tail tune, got a couple of feet off the ground, wind blows on it, copter oscillated heavily, then began flipping out and buried half a prop deep into the ground. My gut feeling is the recommended PIDs which worked fine for me on 0.5 based on Cleanflight no longer work on 0.7 so if someone has recommended ones for me to at least start with I’d appreciate it, but if someone could check my settings for mistakes that’d also be good. My diff is as follows:

I think moving towards a design that can take a standard stack will future proof it. Perhaps even integrating the base plate with the tail as per the baby-tri.
I’m probably going to replace the f3fc with a drilled/cut base plate and stack myself as the FC is getting a bit cranky and I want to replace it with something new and reliable anyway.
I also tilt my cams. I’m usually recording forward flight so it gives me a better shot to do that. You’re not alone in tilting.
