Tricopter Build Log part three

It’s alive! The tricopter went under a few more revisions and prints before finally taking to the air. My old Rev One Quadcopter has been reduced to it’s (over-engineered) frame and nothing more. Its parts (motors, ESCs, batteries, Crius AIO, etc.) have moved on to become this very tricopter.

Currently (in the picture) it is set up to fly FPV sans-GoPro. There is an optional part available to replace the camera pan/tilt servo mount/hole with an alternative “use-what-you-want” vibration-dampened plate.

Keep reading for a couple closeups and highlights of the tricopter.

This thing was remarkably simple to build once all the parts were printed. Write-up and design files coming soon!

 

One thought on “Tricopter Build Log part three”

  1. I think its possible to create a mini copter that strong enough to ride by one person. Or something like a hoover skateboard like in the movie back to the future.
