Hi, built 6 or 7 tri's now (can't get on with quad's) decided to change yaw servo mech. now I use full size servo mounted under frame at CofG and connected to yaw with 4mm carbon rod as per my sceadu heli. Yaw authority is awesome now and proven to be totally crashproof. Here's a couple of pic's cheer's

2 questions for ya
1. what's been or is your contention with quads, and
2. what would you share from your tri experience for a first time builder.
thanks for your time

tricopter yaw
madgaget, sorry to be so long answering you my p/c has been having issue's

A don't like quads as they don't seem to handle well in the air i.e they hover well enough but i like to fly and tri's fit the bill perfect as they handle exactly the same as my IC heli but cost next to nothing to repair after a crash.

b if your going to build one I would use wooden arm's as they damp down vib's really well and are cheap, use 1000 to 1200 kv motor's 8x4 props cheap 20amp escapes and get a kk clone board from hong kong £15 inc delivery to uk (take no notice of QC scare mongering we have 6 or 7 now and they all work faultlessly), you can use yaw like mine or try this both work ok

Interesting. Can you post a picture showing the whole bird ?
I have built a couple of quads, now this looks like it might be next.

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?

Well I haven't weighed it but I've put a half dozen flights on it so far and it is more fun than I imagined. I built this kit...http://rcexplorer.se/projects/FPVMTri/FPVMTri.html and copied it for a second one smaller and 3s instead of 4s.
One for FPV and one just because...

Well after more than a dozen flights I'm changing the tri over to a y4. Just waiting on motors to come back in stock. The servo driven yaw is very responsive with plenty of authority as well. But even a 2" drop landing bends the axle in my setup. Built 5 of these and one has had this condition.
But I'm intrigued by the idea of no servo. So Y4 as soon as the motors come back in stock.

wow
that's easier and cheaper than the y4 solution. I more than likely have everything in the shop to make it. Thanks! The mass of the servo is closer to the cg looks like a winner.

tri yaw
madgadget, all my tri's have the same length arms 21" on the big one and 14" on the small one. Yet to fly the small one cos the weather here is crap it's either rain or blowing a gale. by the way I used a spare aileron lever off my sceadu heli for the yaw pivot rod runs in 4mm bearings so its silky smooth ...Tony
