Product Description

See build video and Flight video below.

Includes Plywood landing gear. I do not sell them but you can also use 500 size heli landing gear if you wish.

This is our new V Tail Quad. it is designed to house all flight components inside the body. the control board is recessed for its protection.

It is very stable with great yaw authority. As with all our frames it is designed to take abuse. and be repaired if you are marginally handy.



Frame comes as shown with arms, Screws and blind nuts. arms are removed for shipping.

This frame will support up to 12" props

Frame weight is 8.5 oz 240grams

Arms are 12” in length and 22" front motor span


Remember you will need a 3 or 4 cell battery that can supply aprox 80 Amps at full throttle with these motors below.

I would recomend 2700 to 3500mah 30C or better.

this does not mean you cant fly it with a 2200mah 20C battery but if you do avoid full throttle. in the demo video below i am using a 2700 25C battery and in the full throttle you could see it was not happy. 



you will need to copy and paste some of the links. sorry


ESC’s (electric speed controller)

Magic esc from me or buddyrc



Fire esc 



Control board KK2.1

From me







 3.5mm bullets









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)





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.




servo if you need





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

And the Glacier batteries from Buddyrc



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. Love this quad 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 30th Nov 2016

    I have build the original simple copter Y and the mini t and now the v-tail tilt. I like the tilt the best. It's certainly one of the easiest quadcopter to fly. Very Stable and extremely responsive. Very fast with Sunny Sky 1400s on 4 cell - almost too fast. Kit was well made and is very durable. Great product fast delivery.

  5. Get the pusher prop adapters 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th Jun 2015

    I don't recall this being mentioned in the build video but you really need the reverse thread prop adapter. Found this out the hard way after I spun my nut off on one of my prop adapters. It was a low test flight so I only lost the nut not the whole quad. Before you ask I was concerned about this and through I sufficiently tigntened them although I didn't go as far as to use loctite. Learn from my mistake and buy these:

    This is Matt from simplecopter. you can also use the nuts with nylon insert. also sold at buddyrc. my problem with the reverse thread is if you loose a nut good luck finding one local. I have a handful of normal prop nuts I keep in my flight box. got them at home depot cheap along with washers.

    I can't wait to get some good weather and get this thing in the air. Very easy to assemble and great quality.

  7. Throwback to childhood 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd Mar 2015

    I chose a wood kit for my first multi because it reminded me of all the control line wood airplanes I built as a kid. The kit came quick, was well packaged. The best part is the online support, both the assembly videos and the information on rcgroups.com.

  8. Awesome 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th Mar 2015

    Got this as my first bigger quadcopter, I have never built anything like this, Im 52 and getting into the hobby for the first time, I had never owned or even done a solder joint before but after watching Matts Video many many times, I bit the bullet. First time build, the landing kept on breaking on my landing, was getting through zip ties like nothing else, did a search on you tube, went with the more bouncy but better ½ cut plastic drainage pipes, much easier for me. After a seriously heavy landing, One of the ESC's wasn't working so rather than just replace, did a full rebuild, wiring much easier this time. Then my right hand motor wouldn't spin in time with everything else, calibrated again and again (With KK Board and without) nothing could get it right. Rebuild 3, wiring piece of piss and a whole lot neater, replaced the old KK Board (3 buttons had come off and connections very bent) replaced with a KK Board in the protective case. This morning had it flying, it hovers it goes straight it flies baby!!!!! Excellent piece of kit, very simple and Im loving it, thanks Matt

  9. Awesome Quad / V-tail Kit 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Feb 2015

    You can not beat this kit for the money. Nice straight forward kit. With auto level on it almost fly's it self. Better than any RTF as building it your self really bring the hobby part back into play. Thank You for a great product.

  10. Awesome flier 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th Jan 2015

    Been flying RC planes for 30+ years, thought I would try a quad. I bought a Blade 350QX first which although it flies fine, everything is proprietary and expensive if you have a mishap.
    I met Matt at HHAEFI 2014 and saw all these simplecopters flying around and having a blast (check out Youtube)and I bought one. Sold my Blade. It's a great feeling not having any anxiety flying because I know if something bad were to happen, I wouldn't be unable to fly until my part I had to order showed up. Battery got too low one time with the tilt and I landed pretty friggin hard - broke some zipties. The same thing happened with the Blade once and I had to order a body(arm broke off), gear, and camera mount. Not cheap.
    I've already put my FPV equipment on the tilt and this thing is AWESOME. I really like keeping the FPV equipment on top of the frame. Also, the E-OSD from Hobby King is essential IMHO - it SHOWS battery voltage instead of trying to listen to an alarm.
    I am cranking up the KK board now and doing aerobatics with it. Turns on a dime and really quick now.
