Update: The top piece of the tricopter frame now has a slot for the servo/signal cables. This makes wire routing a bit easier and safer.
The original Tricopter body. Designed to be small, simple, lightweight, stiff and crash resistant. The design has worked so well that it has hardly been changed since 2010. Made from 1.5mm thick fiberglass it’s virtually indestructible.
The Tricopter frame allows the front arms to fold back. This makes transportation easier but it also help prevent damage in a crash. The arms simply fold back and absorb some of the energy. The arms are held in place by friction, which means that you don’t have to use a tool to fold or unfold, simply grab the arm and push it back or pull it forward.
If you are just starting out flying multirotors I recommend using wood arms, as they are cheap and they break before destroying anything important.
