It’s the most locked in quad I’ve ever flown…and the only one I’ve not had to repair anything on…

I’m about to order another Flipmode… it’s the best flying quad I ever had using the PIDs on your website.

I always thought I was ok at tuning, then I tried the Supafly Betaflight tune …Ive never had a quad tuned that well lol..

Tuning

Building a high performance freestyle quadcopter is a complicated task, and many pilots usually settle for ‘stock tuning’ which the flight firmware comes with because the mere construction is enough of a challenge, let alone learning about gyro filtering and PID control theory…Stock tuning however is usually a low performance option in order to be safe and applicable across a broad range of components. Sure it flies ‘ok’ but the PIDs are usually much lower and the filtering much higher than neccessary resulting in a loose and latent perfoming build-it is like driving a Ferrari with tyres half inflated. However knowing what to change and by how much can seem baffling and the result is often a lot of head scratching when most people would rather just fly…

One of the goals at Supafly is to help anyone get a high performance quad that flies as good as the ‘Pro’s’ you see in videos, without all the confusion and hair pulling…a well tuned quad feels totally ‘locked in’ and inspires confidence because you have a much better feel, and it also results in smoother video because of superior prop wash handling and smoothing from correct filtering and D gains. A lot of time has been spent understanding this so you can just get out there and enjoy flying a high performance machine, and the tunes below apply well to the frame and build recommendations on this website. 

Copy bullet point text below, paste into Betaflight configurator ‘CLI’ tab then press enter…it will save and reboot the configurator – and tune your quad.

Flipmode / Juicemode Betaflight 4 – note: please check motors with a hover test – this is a high performance tune
