This is the third time I rebuild this tricopter… each and every time making her better. It’s a Fortis Airframes Titan Tricopter.
At the moment, she’s running (part list):
- CC3D Flight Controller
- FrSky XR4-SB Receiver with a Taranis
- RCExplorer.se CF booms
- IRC 600mW 5.8Ghz VTX
- IBCrazy Air Screw Blue Beam Ultra
- HK F30A ESCs flashed with BLHeli
- PZ0420 Board Camera
- Hitec HS-5085MG Yaw Servo
- Glacier 4S 3300 Mah Batteries
- HQ-Prop 10×5 Carbon Nylon
That PVC tubing is a really good idea! and I like the rubber band holding the arm out. Danny explained in the group:
The designer of this kit of course was inspired by D Windestal, and so was I. Check them out, it’s Fortis Airframes LLC – Zack’s a cool guy. I made some mods which I can explain in a blog post or something. The other thing is, if you use Zack’s extruded carbon booms, you NEED to use wooden dowels to reinforce them – which means your wiring will not be as clean because it’ll be outside. Extruded carbon is not very strong. Mine cracked. So, I ordered David’s booms straight from Sweden. Those are the ones in this current build.
All the wiring is sandwiched between the two plates to keep everything clean. The ESC wires are all inside the booms.
Danny also has a more detail blog post about this tricopter, check it out.
