Foamboard Tri Copter with EDF Vectored Thrust

Not built for accuracy but lots of fun… Some wobbles and jitters but gets the job done perfectly.

Ch5 high: pitch and roll differential thrust, yaw thrust vectoring

Ch5 mid: pitch, roll and yaw thrust vectoring, minimal tilt. MonoPhan thrust vectoring algorithm.

Ch5 low: pitch, roll and yaw thrust vectoring, optical flow position hold and BARO. No tilt… Arduino supported.

Fully foamboard with carbon fiber and aluminum enforcements.

Thanks!

wait, so..

is it just set up as a tricopter with extra servo outputs, and then the servos are slaved on the TX, and then the different slaves are set to a single switch, all on the TX?

or does it command the flight controller to enter a different flight profile, and you've just pre-programmed this in to the flight controller.?

what software are you using?

this is pretty darn cool, and seems like a pretty neat thing to try with a normal tricopter too.
