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.

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..
