Needed a new challenge, so why refresh an old tricopter specifically Hobbyking trifecta build using modern day electronics. Wouldn't be going fast but it great for exploring. Flight controller is flashed with iNav. It is capable of mild acrobatic flight. A later addition is to add Matek M8Q-5883 for GPS mission waypoint mode for iNav. For now it sports ebay sourced M8N gps for telemetry.
On 4s 1300mha it could easily fly up to over 5 mins.

All prices are in Australian dollaroos.

hi nok-fpv
what verison inav you flashed on the f405 std. I also would like to use trifecta and keep it in my car glove box as park flyer for a quick spin around.

INAV/MATEKF405 2.1.0 according to #dump. I also used the tricopter present, 7 inch gps as bases.

This guide will walk you through the process of building your first FPV quad. The goal with this design was to build a low-cost, lightweight quad, yet powerful enough to safely carry a GoPro in close proximity areas. I chose these parts to minimize the amount of soldering at no cost to the quality. A typical build requires around 30 solders while this only needs 25. It's not a huge difference, but..

In late 2019 DJI made inroads into the FPV scene with their remarkable low-latency digital system. It gave us a 720p video feed with latency on-par with the status quo, analog video. Traditionally we've used analog video systems for low-latency video, but the video quality is far from ideal. It's a trade-off we've been willing to accept for the control. Now we've got the best of both worlds and what..
