Sure. But basically, all the subjects are getting cut off.

Can you pm me a screen shot of what you mean

Gaza - can you make the subject line section in the forum topic list wider? It's cutting off the subject field really short.

Good for you!  ~~

Had another negative encounter, it's been a few years since the last one, just an uneducated ******, going on about drones being illegal yada yada yada.    :-/
Still that didn't spoil my flying time, had an absolute blast  ~~

DB that just means you have shed loads of props in the first place ;-)

Just had a thought, even with all the crashing I've done, I haven't bought any replacement props in over a year ~~

When 4 blades is too many

Previous topic - Next topic


So having used my HK Q450 as an initial dip into the multi rotor waters it then served as a test bed for the Crius AIOP board and as a proving ground for my FPV efforts. As it passed all it';s tasks with flying colours and I am looking forward to a new quad platform for my FPV I thought - what could I do :hmm:

So here are the beginnings of my home brew tri copter. I will be using a KK2.0 for the board, 1200KV motors with the Plush 18A ESC';s. In fact it';s just the same as the quad but with one less arm :cool:

Hopefully it wont be a disaster. Had the Savox servo from my FBL helicopter, got the steering arm mounts from HobbyKing and the rod through the middle that it all pivots on is (I think) a main shaft from a Blade SR helicopter that was in my box of goodies. I have to say it works quite well on the bench and is a widely used method for making the yaw mechanism.

Gotta love this hobby, you can';t bodge a helicopter with cable ties :whistling:


That looks very nice - it will be great to see it in the air!
One circlip short of a quadcopter.
 1 lobe short of an antenna.


Cheers, some video will be on the cards for sure ~~


Nice and neat looks good look forward to seeing the test flight  ~~


Cheers Gary :beer2:

Waiting on some M3 nuts and bolts to arrive so I can cobble the frame together.

Having a spare top and bottom plate and a Dremel with a cutting disc has meant I have had a few options as to how to bodge a new frame together.

All good fun and is keeping my fingers busy until I can get the bits (and the money) together for my FPV platform :laugh:


Bolts arrived so have done a dry run on fitting the frame together and make sure it all lines up. Have just ordered some M3x6 button heads to match up with all the new ones as it will look a little odd with a mix of heads on view.

Thats pretty ingenius!! Well done mate, looks good. Cant wait to see it in the air. Remember to post some vids. ~~


Thanks Tony, posted a video earlier today in the FPV section ~~


Thanks for a very interesting post. I am thinking of building a tricopter.
