Hi Alex,

I did get my tricopter flying on the APM1. It wasn't nearly as good as the KK board though. Aero mode wasn't worth trying, but stabilize was manageable. I had to turn all the D terms to zero. Others were rate_p 0.118 stab_p 5.5 and stab_yawP 7.6 - this is on an RCExplorer tricopter.

The tri was jerking a lot though, every 2 or 3 seconds I think... putting on a five degree roll or pitch and back again. Also the yaw felt sloppy.

I managed to break my GPS and needed my APM for the T3 contest on fixed wing, so I've put the tri down for now. I think it needs a lot of work

Please let me know if you have any better luck!!

Colin
