    inav + GPS with TBS Colibri FC

    HI all,

    Looking to use the Elite Bundle as the basis for an Inav build with GPS; has anyone got this (Inav + GPS + TBS Colibri) to work satisfactorily?

    I'm going through this same thought process as well. iNav has a release for the Colibri. I'm currently searching on how to have a competent long range acro miniquad (7") with GPS failsafe backup. That is my primary goal, so I can fly longer range without worrying if the RC link is lost

    If iNav wont support the BST puck from TBS, can you wire in a non-tbs GPS puck into the Colibri through a UART?

    What happens to the rest of the stack (unify/current sensor/core pro) when you flash iNav onto the elite? Will you lose all control over the OSD menus?



    Can we contact iNav with these questions? If the elite bundle can be made to work with iNav w/gps, and retain the ability to control the OSD, VTX, FC and cam settings, then it could be one of the best setups for long range on 5.8ghz

    afaik inav has the colibri as traget in the code.
    it also supports the crsf protocol and a lot mor data via mavlink (on the micro you can run crsf on pin 1/2 and mavlink on 3/4)

    i tryed to get in contact with the developer but from now i have no mail adress or something else...

    For what it's worth, I took a stock PowerCube and replaced the FC with an EagleTree Vector Micro - all mounted on a TBS G2 frame. I could not be happier with the way it flies. The goal for the build was endurance and distance.
