A lot of people have been asking for the DXF file of the tricopter body.
Your wish is my command. Here is an updated PDF file:

We had IBcrazy visit Flitetest to share his long range system shootout.
I was fortunate enough to attend one of the largest RC events in the world. Together with Josh Bixler we set out on an epic journey.
In this episode of FliteTest I give my views on the classic Bird of time
In this video I teach Josh Bixler how to cut advanced shapes with the hotwire cutter
After many, many hours of building my latest creation is finally alive!

Hi guys! I recorded a Tricopter V2.6HV Build video for Flitetest. In this build I use 1/2 inch (12mm) booms on the original tricopter body, and I show how to compensate the geometry for that.
I also show how to build the vibration dampening system. So check it out:
In this video I talk more about the back story of the space mission:
In this Q&A Josh and I discuss the difference in flying a tricopter and a quadcopter
Check out my latest crazy build on the latest FliteTest episode:

The tricopter frames I make have now found a new home.
I will now be selling them through the Flite Test webshop instead of here.
What this will mean for you as a costumer is lower price and much faster handling time. Which means that you will get your frame much quicker.
Also the top frame now has my signature laser etched into it!
I would like to thank all of you that have bought or is buying a frame from me. Without your support I wouldn’t have been able to experiment or make projects. It is you that makes me able to do what I do and share it with you.
This is my attempt to send a FPV glider into the edge of space and glide it back to earth via a video link.
