Nice setup! The Ubiquiti NanoBeam was less expensive than I expected. I didn't see a cone pattern for it but the 25dBi gain is impressive for the price.

Did you print the 3D parts yourself or send out for them? I was wondering what the…"

"Pete,
Before Tridge fixed the original issues, I converted my CL-84 back to stock. I decided to stick with my FireFLY6s and QuadPlanes for now. The QuadPlanes use Plane v3.6.0 and I am waiting for v3.8.0 before upgrading.

"Hi Pete,
Are you using a beta build from Tridge or are you making your own builds from master?
It sounds like your issue is something basic like either the quadplane feature is not enabled or your frame type is not set right. Have you posted your is…"

"Jimmy,
Today, there is tiltrotor support for the FireFLY6 in APM Plane v3.8.0. No AVA key is needed. You can find pre-release firmware and setup information here. Also, the PX4 stack supports tiltrotor for the FireFLY6 hardware.
Good luck!

"Hi Patrick,

Your tracker looks great! I'm glad you got things ironed out. The Pixhawk Lite does have several incorrect pinout diagrams so the images below are for others that may want to use this $47 low cost controller for their tracker. The image…"
