The home of the brilliant David Windestål tricopters is being shutdown :(

Caroline,

I am writing bc I see you’re an accomplished tricopter builder & pilot. In 2014 I bought everything required to build a nice sized Tri except controller. Now in 2019, I just need to know where to go to find a decent flight controller that will give me the functionality I seek. Any advice by you or others is very greatly appreciated.

My original plan for this TRI was & still is to film using FPV.

I'm sorry to have to let you down but I was never overly successful with tricopters. I would suggest @PsyBorg can help you there!

Wedge,
The forums over at @David's site are still active. It's just the store that is shutting down at this point. I've been working with a handful of people to test the latest version on TriFlight. It's currently being re-based off BetaFlight 4.1. F3 flight controllers are on the way out so stick to F4 or F7. We don't have an officially supported list of Flight controllers at this point, but some of the ones that have been tested are the Matek F405-STD, F405-CTR, F722-STD, F405-mini, Omnibus F4 nano V3, and the Holybro Kakute f4 & F7 FCs.

Cheers!
