thank you

Your Z-axis vibe could be better as there is clipping shown on 2 axis. How have you mounted the PixRacer?
The pitch and roll tuning is not good. I suspect you will have to resort to manual tuning as I did on a mini-quad with a PixRacer. Also which compass are you using? The offsets are very high as they tend to be with one of the internal compass’s on the PixRacer.

I agree.
Do you have foam over the Barn?
It’s input is quite noisy.

You have quite a bit of ringing on your Desired to actual roll and pitch

Maybe bring the _FLT values down a bit and reduce aggressiveness of tune and retune.
