Took the tricopter out for a quick recorded flight. All settings are still stock. No tuning. I am very pleased with how easy this thing flies right from the get go. I am sure will a little tuning, it will be even better! I did have one anomaly…and I am not sure exactly what happened. It’s about 2 minutes into the video. The right arm sorta dropped out, but afterwards it flew like it never happened.
When I am ready to tune, I’ll probably take a methodical approach. If you are watching this and know right away some tweaks I should do, feel free to let me know. This is my first multirotor, and obviously my first time with the KK2.1 board. Some of you will know right away what P or I gain settings I should make. Experience pays off there, I am sure.
Anyway…I am only slightly concerned about the glitch. It’s been through a few batteries with no problems…and I was sorta trying to confuse it some….
