This is awesome, I was just thinking about building something like this. Surprised at how well it flies already, what firmware did you use, triflight? and what servo is that specifically?

I use Betaflight firmware.
Added servo information to Part List ↑

ah I forgot Betaflight has tricopters as well. Thank you!

I finally got around to making a 3d printed version of this, I'll take pictures once I get it well-tuned.

for anyone looking, I am semi-sure this servo works with a pwm rate of up to 333 hertz, which will get you much better response in betaflight

From the video, your wife didnt seem too impressed. (joke)
From what i saw you've a fair bit of Tail-Wag. Any chance you'd be able to tune this out?

If you can attach an Openlagger you can pull a BF log that can be used to optimize the tune to its fullest.

Side Note: Try brigging that little tricopter to a Whoop meet and you'll blow their minds.

AirbladeUAV has done it again and this time they've brought long range to the 5" class! Based on the popular Transformer Mini, the new Transformer 5" Ultralight adopts a lot of the same design philosophies with larger props and more payload capacity. It can fly upwards of 20 minutes on a 4 cell Li-Ion battery pack and in ideal conditions it's got a range of over 4 to 5 miles. In this guide I'll walk..

With the release of the DJI FPV Drone cinematic FPV has become a lot more accessible, but you certainly don't want to crash a $750 drone! The QAV-CINE Freybott is a compact, lightweight cinematic FPV drone that can take a hit and keep going. It's a lot safer to fly indoors and around people. With a naked GoPro or the SMO 4k you can capture some great stabilized footage. In this guide I'll show you..
