Product Description

 

See build video and Flight video below.

 

This is our newest Flagship Tri. it is designed to house all flight components inside the body. the control board is recessed for its protection.

It has a slightly larger arm span due to the larger plates. as with all our frames it is designed to take abuse.

 

As for building help see the building the simple T copter video below. it is very similar to this new tri.

 

 

Frame comes as shown with arms, rear boom, rear block, fiberglass pivot, retainer Colet, Screws and blind nuts. Tricopter comes fully assembled for US customers. International orders the arms are removed for shipping.

 

This frame wil support up to 10" props

Frame weight is 5.6oz 158grams (Turnigy Talon weighs 350grams or 12.3oz. weight killss performance and flight time.

Arms are 12” in length

Suggested motors

RCtimer 28-30 1300kv (lower quality)

HP2812-1300kv from rctimer (medium quality)

Sunnysky 2212 1400kv (best quality)

The high KV (1300-1400) of the motors and small props (8x4) rotate at tremendous speeds. Any vibrations generated will have a very high frequency which the GoPro  won't detect. With the Frame being made of wood and ply wood, more vibrations are dampened, resulting in a jitter and rolling shutter free video. One shortcoming is the relatively short flight duration of around 7 minutes fully loaded with a 2200mah 4S LiPo.

 

Suggested ESC’s

Super simple 18-20 (3 cell only) good for starting out

Plush 30 (3 or 4 cell) very good

Flashed F30A (3 or 4 cell) best

 

Control board

Hobbyking KK2 board

  1. Pretty Frickin Awesome

    Posted by Matt Disher on 21st Apr 2014

    I have multiple quads. Flew a buddy's simple copter and had to have one. Haven't assembled it yet, still collecting the bits. But the beauty of just replacing a couple wire-ties or a $0.50 boom arm after crashes greatly appeals to me.


  2. Simple Tricopter 2.0

    Posted by Joe G. on 31st Mar 2014

    Watched every video about simplecopter I could find before I bought one. I am very pleased with my purchase. Simplecopter went together very easily. All parts fit together great. Once I get better at flyin the Tri, I will get the v-tail also. No regrets at all. Love the copter, and Matts videos are great.


  3. awesome product with outstanding customer sevice

    Posted by michael bandy on 4th Mar 2014

    I love the tricopter, great product for beginners (with auto level on) or the most advanced flyers......fun to build to!!


  4. Simply great!

    Posted by Jase on 25th Feb 2014

    Ordered a Tricopter 2.0 , it was delivered to me in the UK within 6 days. Very happy with the frame , its well made , comes ready for electronics and is perfectly sized for acrobatics. Started building tonight and really enjoying it so far, plenty of room to place all electronics inside the frame for a sleek neat look. Cant wait to fly the hell out of this thing!!! I'll be ordering again!!


  5. FUN!

    Posted by Uni on 15th Feb 2014

    What a great American made copter! flys beautifully, I might get another!!


  6. Fun to fly

    Posted by MartinL on 29th Jan 2014

    The Tricopter 2.0 is an outstanding frame. It’s light, well balanced and durable. Fun to build, but even more fun to fly.

    Using a KK2.0 v1.6 flight controller and SimonK F-30A speed controllers, this tricopter has ultra responsive yet silky smooth handling characteristics, even with the cheap HK Turnigy 2826/10 1400kv motors that I fitted. Suitable for beginner or advanced pilots alike. It’s solid as a rock and forgiving in self-level mode, but capable of unbelievable dragonfly like agility in acro. The simple tail block and servo assembly gives it an amazing yaw with robotic precision and zero drift. Orientation is also much better than a standard quad. A 5 star product.

    Don’t forget to buy the landing skid and the servo to rear block connector to complete the setup. Thank you to Matt Hall and everyone at Simplecopter.com.


  7. First Tricopter Build

    Posted by Tim - UK on 18th Jan 2014

    Awesome tricopter, love it. Now put a APM 2.5 and my FPV gear on it and she doesn't notice the extra weight. I'm using RC Timer 2812-1300Kv motors, 10 x 4.5SF HK Props, all powered by 3300mAh 4S lipos.


  8. First time multirotor builder

    Posted by Bjorn Baal on 12th Jan 2014

    Awesome shipping turnaround, setup instructions and suggestions. Flew my tricopter for the first flight today and its super stable. Thanks for the awesome product Matt.


  9. My first tricopter build.

    Posted by Tim on 11th Jan 2014

    This tri is AWESOME!! I now have about 10+ flights on it and it's a blast to fly!! The build is made very easy with the youtube video from Mr. Hall and takes all the guesswork out of the picture,he even will show you the kk2 board setup to get this beast flying. I have 3 hard crashes so far and the frame is rock solid...arms will fold back during a crash and you might break a prop.(My worst crash so far cost me $5 for two props.)Also I like that he gives you a good,better,best parts list that will conform to a build budget. (if there is such a thing) :) I would HIGHLY recomend this tricopter to anyone looking for multi-rotor fun.
    V-tail is next on my list :)


  10. Simple Copter 2.0

    Posted by Mike on 4th Dec 2013

    Matt you are the best.
    The 2.0 plates arrived today and the first thing that comes to mind is OUT-Freakin-STANDING!!!!

    They are perfect for a larger Y6 with slightly heavier arms.
    I am thinking 5/8"x3/4"x14" and I'll attach both motors at all 3 ends just like the Y3.
    3/4" wide will give extra strength and a better surface to attach the ESC..
    Can't wait to get started on it.
    And I still say that watching your flying is a real PITA for me.
    Be good and have a Merry Christmas or whatever you celebrate.
