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

    Posted by matt on 3rd Nov 2014

    This tri copter is very well built. and came packaged up real good. I haven't put it together due to waiting for the rest of my parts from other companies.

  3. Best Tri hands down

    Posted by David Martin on 24th Oct 2014

    This is the best design 2 thumbs up for the designer. Never flown a copter or multi rotor just airplanes.......First time out no crashes 5 week later loops, rolls, flip ect.....having a ball.....and when I do smack the ground just a few zip ties and a blade or 2 and you are back in the air having a ball.

    Great quality and the service is 5 stars for sure.


  4. Great durable Tricopter

    Posted by Anthony Ramirez on 29th Aug 2014

    I have had it for 2 weeks and I LOVE this! I have flown airplanes for years but this is my first copter. The video was a great help and I am VERY happy with it. The first week I crashed it 6 or 7 times cause I had the radio set to helicopter and couldn't get Self-Level to work. Now that I got it all working right it flies beautifully. In all those crashes I only broke a boom, so I epoxied it, and 2 propellers. VERY durable copter. Next I plan to add a camera and FPV.

  6. flys will

    Posted by Chris on 17th Jun 2014

    This tricoper flys great
    The build video was a big help


  7. Great Design. Awesome product.

    Posted by John on 15th Jun 2014

    I bought this to replace a slightly less expensive tricopter that was destroyed in its first crash. That one flew so poorly I just thought tricopters were no good. Then I saw the video of the 2.0 Tricopter and I had to have one. Now that I do, I love it! It flies great!! I was flipping it on my second battery :-). I had a minor crash, and the front boom folded back as designed - no damage. Most designs don't emphasize crash-ability, but I love that this one does. I love his thing!


  8. Great flyer!!

    Posted by BIG LACY McClanahan on 20th May 2014

    This thing flys a lot better than my quads, now if I can just keep it out of trees. I cut one down w/Tri in the top no damage to tri but LCD on KK2 shot, but still works. BIG LACY


  9. Bada$$ easy build!

    Posted by Unknown on 19th May 2014

    After following these super easy instructions, I've created a monster!


  10. Excellent design and quality

    Posted by Matt on 18th May 2014

    I was skeptical until a co-worker brought one in completely finished and setup with FPV. I was blown away and had to have one. Ordered from simplecopter.com, had it in 3 days time, and fully assembled within a week. Couldn't be happier with the purchase.
