Here is the maiden of my Tri. It was WAY too windy, but I couldn't wait.

I went back an revisited my Gryo Gains. I am now running at about 71%. There is a little bit of pulsating still, so looks like I might need to wind it back a little more.

There is still lots of drift on the tail, and as there is no Gain cable on the GWS Gryo, looks like I might have to use the manual pot on the Gryo itself.

I do have one motor that starts up later than the rest too. Front right.

You might be able to see in the video that I have a fair amount of Yaw trimmed in to keep it straight - is that a torque issue? I didn't expect to have the tail motor leaning over so much.

Right now it weighs in at 34 ounces - and I have not put the camera gear on yet!! EEEK!!! That might be a problem!!!

I will post pics in the next post.
