"my board has a 3rd input , autonomus flight and when switching to that mode some issues,but no problems with the 2 modes, when you tilt the wing to ff you need to reduce power ,the wing is much more efficient. I use baseflight bicopter and adapt for…"

"Wow, interesting.  So you're switching between the two servo outputs mid-flight using a multiplexer?  How does this work in practice?  Do you first use Baseflight to get it up to hover, then apply some forward thrust, while…"

"Thanks.  I guess I am curious how the two processors work together.  How are you switching between hover and forward flight?"

Wow, interesting.  So you're switching between the two servo outputs mid-flight using a multiplexer?  How does this work in practice?  Do you first use Baseflight to get it up to hover, then apply some forward thrust, while switching to the iNav controller?  

Also, are both controllers driving the tilt servos?  If so, how are those connected in the firmware?  I didn't know that Baseflight supported tiltrotors.

Thanks for all the info!
