Drain grid cover tri-copter & INFLIGHT_ACC_CALIBRATION question

Hi there

I'm very happy with this folding tri-copter I've made with a NAZE 32 Funfly board and a grid cover and some old uPVC electrical conduit.

It's flying great but I have to manually adjust the roll and pitch angles in CleanFlight or add a lot of trim to counteract the fact that the board is mounted on foam which seems to easily get compressed and out of alignment with wiring pushing against it. So I want to be able to use INFLIGHT_ACC_CALIBRATION.

I've set this in the CleanFlight GUI and enabled a three position switch to move from position two, HORIZON and MAG mode to position three, HORIZON, MAG and CALIB mode but I just can't get it to work during flight.

NB. This shows CALIB on it's own dedicated position but I've tried it all ways.

I'm following these instructions for MultiWii, http://www.multiwii.com/wiki/index.php?title=Extra_features#Inflight_ACC_calibr ation.

Has anybody had any success with INFLIGHT_ACC_CALIBRATION? If so, do you have any tips or better instructions to follow please?

Thanks.

I've done it, but it's been months. I think you basically get into a level hover, then turn on the switch to activate the calibration. Then land, disarm, and move the switch out of calibration to save your settings.
