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.

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.

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..
