It’s the best flying quad I ever had using the PIDs on your website.

I thought I was ok at tuning, then I tried the Supafly tuning…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 compromise 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 necessary resulting in a loose and latent performing 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. A well tuned quad feels totally ‘locked in’ which is a description of the way it feels to have the correct amount of P and I term locking the quad in place in response to stick movements. This encourages better flying because of the subtle subconscious effect of having better control. The correct amounts of D gain and filtering smooths out the flying and results in noticeably better HD video. For best results please adhere as closely as possible to the recommended build.

As you can see all the three major flight firmware have been tested and tuned, but currently I fly Betaflight due to the combination of reliability, cost, transparency (easy to fix issues) and community. Once tuned properly they all fly very similarly in terms of performance, and Betaflight has taken a significant step forward with the RPM filtering.
