Tricopter - first flight FPV

FPV flying; well its a bit odd flying 'heads down' into a screen... took some tips from FliteTest and didn't try to switch between the screen and looking up :)

The video range is a bit suspect... but I have mounted the video Rx about 20cm from the transmitter!

Tricopter maiden flight

Flying the tricopter during calm(er) spells on a gusty Sunday.

PIDs still need some tuning to get rid of the shakes, but this is surprisingly fly-able for a scratch build wot I made :) I attribute some of this to the SimonK flashed ESCs
