Excuse the audio. The stupid lav mic recorder flipped out. It’s really fun to fly.
We’ve been looking for a more powerful flight controller for a while now. Something with good features like a built-in OSD, soft-mounted gyro, faster processor, good amount of UART’s, enough ADC inputs and enough available pins capable of driving servos.
It’s a pretty tall order, but we did manage to find one; The Kakute F4 V2. It can do both Tricopter and Bicopter with some remapping of pins in betaflight and jihlein on the forums has already made the first test target for dRonin, an awesome firmware that is showing a lot of potential for both the Tricopter and Bicopter. More info regarding this will be posted soon. So keep an eye out!
Seems like the looks of the site is a bit off. We’re working to fix it. The rest of the site works as it should.
I made an error with the Bicopter schematic in the build video. Please use this schematic instead to get proper function:
Sorry for the inconvenience.
Here is a step by step build/setup video of the RCExplorer Bicopter. I hope you’ll find it useful. Post a comment if you have any questions or if there is something I missed in there.
The Bicopter parts have arrived and the kits will ship out soon!
While visiting FliteFest a couple of weeks back I met up with the Rotor Riot guys and shot an episode on the new Bicopter and good old Baby Tricopter. I wish I had more time to tune the Tricopter before the episode, but I think the episode turned out pretty good. What do you think?
Tired of your locked in copter that obeys your every wish? Then, boy, do I have something for you! This is the RCExplorer Bicopter. A carbon fiber monster that you have to fly the way it wants to fly. Are you ready for the challange? Read more about this badass looking crazy contraption here.
Not sure why I haven’t posted these files before… Thanks to Kevin on the forums for reminding me!
Updated/fixed plans are now avalible

First day at FliteFest was a blast!
I brought the Bi-copter with me and anyone that wanted to fly it got the controller. It really is great meeting people and flying together.

More to come. Stay tuned.
