    I have been flying quadcopters for quite some time but mainly have been rtf. I really want to make a multirotor for fpv racing. I'm stuck on the fence between trying to make a 250 class quad or a tricopter as I like the yaw characteristics of a tri and they are relatively cheaper to make. Any...

    Yaw Over Compensates on a Mini Tricopter

    I've been flying a mini tricopter with a KK2.1.5 board and it has been awesome. A while back I built an identical one but used a Naze 32 board. It always felt sluggish until I read that the "Rate" settings in CleanFlight has the same affects as "Stick Scaling" on the KK2 board. What a...
