    Interesting, that the more rigid ones collapse in your setup. Nevertheless I got some spares right now…

    Well, it might have been a crash too, which I had quite a few as I’m still a beginner… 😉

    Servo is also my problem at the moment as my main shaft spit its gears (it´s the HK branded BMS-210DMH with aluminium shaft, which did not withstand my big 1045 props). I think that this might have been the problem with not working inflight servocal as the servo already had a pre-damage though flying was still possible until it chew another tooth.
    Nevertheless just ordered the stainless steel replacement gears from the RCE shop and I hope the inflight servocal will work out fine in the end…

    Conclusion for me: Saving a few bucks will not always be the better choice!

    @vantasstic: Thanks for checking the new firmware and loading backup settings to it. I also did that right now and it worked like a charm! Did not have to change one of the already made settings. Even board alignment has been taken over from the old one.

    Very happy with that!!!

    @jihlein: Thanks for your explanation on how to export the settings. At the moment I´m not willing to do this as I´ll futher use my old build of end of April which is sufficient for me at the moment…

    But of course I will make a copy of my settings just for security reasons!

    As I´m missing the Linux package build, I did this myself and you can download the latest build for 64-bit Ubuntu here:

    https://drive.google.com/file/d/1LoW_A2jS7zRX08JCDmcJtLrwApTYWiRj/view?usp=sharing

    After download navigate to your download directory and just install the package on your system with the command:

    sudo apt install ./dronin_1.d-20190605-40bb068c-1_amd64.deb

    This should also automatically install missing dependencies…

    By the way: Is there a possibility to make a “dump” of my current dRonin-settings and use them in the new firmware not having to tune everything again?

    @swissfreek Thanks for the detailed explanations of your experiences! Very appreciated! So that means for me to try the inflight servo calibration again but for a longer flight. Let me try this on Sunday and I will come back with my results…

    I really enjoy flying my Tri even without the servo cal procedure working right now but for the sake of my curiosity I will have to have this completed!

    @vantasstic: I´m experiencing the same problems with inflight servo calibration. Tried it also 3 times today and do not see any changes in motor thrust factor.

    When I start flying in servo cal mode it collects the 5 samples (5 short beeps depending on flight situation). After landing and disarming when I switch to normal flight mode there is no additional beeping confirming that the values have been saved to the FC as posted by jihlein on this post: https://rcexplorer.se/forums/topic/dronin-for-tricopters-trironin/page/18/#post-61568

    So I have no idea what to try now to get the values saved… Is my firmware too old? the last self compiled version I´m using is back on 20th April 2019.

    Hi there,

    just like to share my own scratch built Trironin Tricopter inspired by Davids V4. Though went some different way with the booms which I built in a combination of 3D-printed parts and Cfk-tubes which are glued together with epoxy.
    Electronics is not finished yet as there will be a GPS and an FPV-system mounted to it. All in all it flies very well even without autotuning the PIDs and stuff. Now I need some more stick practise in order not to crash it too often though the build is very strong!

    Weight without battery is 663g. At the moment I fly a 3S 3000mAh pack which is around another 300g.

    Motors: SunnySky X2216 1250KV
    Servo: BMS-210DMH incl. feedback wire
    ESCs: HAKRC BLHeli_32 Bit 35A
    FC&PDB: Kakute F4 V2 & BabyPDB
    Props: Gemfan 10×4,5

    Sorry cannot test the compass function as my tricopter is not finished yet and it will take some more weeks until my broken leg is healthy again…

    Very cool, as I´m also very interested in a RTH solution!

    Are you sure that the KakuteF4V2 does not have I2C-pads? I think it has the pads on the backside of the PCB. Please, have a look at the image attached…

    Hello there,

    as I’m new to tricopters and I would like to try all of this myself. I’m very interested in the Triflight for dRonin. I’m not having a flying Tricopter yet but it’s currently in building stage. The intended FC will be the Kakute F4 board.
    As I do not have Windows or MacOS I have compiled the linux package of Johns github-branch to be able to install it in Ubuntu 64bit as a simple deb-Package. All seems to be running fine and the additional firmware files are also included. If someone is interested in this package, please let me know. Maybe the package can also be provided on a public server similar to the other two.

    Also from me a big thank you to John Ihlein for his awesome efforts on development of Triflight for dRonin!

    Patrick
