    Product Description

    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.

    The design works best with 10mm square booms, but also works with 12mm (½ inch) booms with only slight modification (build video for 12mm booms here)

    If you are just starting out flying multirotors I recommend using wood arms, as they are cheap and they break before destroying anything important.

    Price includes 2 body plates (1 tricopter frame)


    • Material: 1.5mm thick G10/FR4
    • Dimensions: 130x100x1.5mm
    • Weight per piece: 20 grams

    If used with 10mm booms use this screw pack.

    Don’t forget to check out the front spacer.

      Hey, David!
      Can we get a top frame with 30.5mm-spaced holes for mounting a separate FC? Or would it be easier to drill them myself?

      • :

        It’s difficult to drill holes in the top plate due to the arms folding. It would be possible on the front end, but the board would be a bit forward of the CG
