Would you be willing to share your iNav build for your custom tailsitter?  Would love to experiment with it here.

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!
