10x5 use with 1400kv on 3 cell only or 980kv on 3 or 4 cell ( these are more efficient but not as snappy for aerobatics. They are very good in the wind)

Motors

High end (at least for me) sorry these are hard to get. I have made these very popular.

Sunnysky 2212 1400kv use 8x4.5 prop on 3 or 4 cell or 10x5 on 3 cell.

USA dealer when he has them http://www.buddyrc.com/sunnysky-x2212-9-1400kv-ii.html

 

Sunnysky 2212 980kv use 10x5 with 4 cell pack. These give 10 to 15% more flight time with slightly reduced power. They have enough power to fly on 3 cell but if loaded with fpv gear then use 4 cell.

As far as batteries go i like the hobbyking compact zippy.

And the Glacier batteries from Buddyrc

buddyrc.com

 

Buddyrc also caries the Icharger line of Chargers. I have had very good luck (meaning none of my batteries have caught fire like they did with 2 different hobbyking chargers)

  1. very agile 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Mar 2015

    but this tricopter right after buying the V tail love both of the simple copters definitely recommend these to everyone else


  2. flight is good and stable 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th Mar 2015

    Flight is good and stable with the KK2 just wish you came with extra screws all in all very good Tricopter.
    tail plate needs to be made of something different so you can put a bearing on each then it would be great


  3. Tricopter at its best!! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Feb 2015

    Already have the T-Copter, the V-Tail and two or three of the simple copters which I really like.

    Bought this one to try the Eagle Tree Vector since it works on tricopers!!!

    Have notes from Matt's video to use when I do a "factory reset" on trhe KK2 board and use his recommended settings!


  4. Invaluable Information and Highly Recommended to EVERYONE! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th Jan 2015

    I build everything from scratch, but the information in Matts videos was invaluable. So much, that I bought the TriCopter frame and couldn't be happier. I've since purchase the V-Tail frame for my father and sent it and all components to him with a note telling him to watch the SimpleCopter videos. I have No Doubt he'll be successful building and flying one of these with everything that SimpleCopter provides. Thanks Matt!


  5. Great frame, and great service 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Jan 2015

    Can't really say enough about the Tricopter on offer here. Matt is a great guy who's incredibly helpful and knowledgeable about the copters he sells and fly's.
    The frame and parts I bought from Matt were first rate, and when I got stuck during the build he helped out, and offered advice in person.
    I'm teaching my son to fly so this is a great platform, and has survived a couple of impacts with trees then the ground with no damage. Just a couple of broken props.
    This copter fly's great, it's fast and nimble, and will easily work from beginner up to advanced stunt flyer.


  6. Very nice tri 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th Dec 2014

    Really well designed and manufactured , Flies anything from mellow to wild and capable of hauling a decent payload, Super easy to build.
    Its a real pleasure to do business with someone who is passionate about the sport , provides superb customer service and detailed instructional videos and is also involved in online forums.
    From time of order to built and in the air in under a week!
    A+++++++++++++


  7. Excellent build quality, excellent price. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 1st Dec 2014

    Received the tri frame in the mail, and after unboxing, I was really impressed with the lightness and the build quality. Matt is doing excellent work with these. I have stained the wood after a bit of light sanding and am waiting on a KK 2.1.5 board and some servo leads to arrive. Once they do, it'll be time to fly!

  9. tri copter 2.0 5 Star Review

    Posted by 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.

  10. Best Tri hands down 5 Star Review

    Posted by 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.
