New screws and tricopter back in stock

Tricopter Screw Pack

After a very lengthy search I have finally found a source for both 18 and 20mm black button head stainless steel M3 screws. I also managed to get a hold of black M3 stainless nylon lock nuts as well, making the tricopter look very pimp.

The screws are much stronger than the old philips screws. They have a temper rating of 10.9 and have 2mm hex heads that are very low profile. Only downside is that they are more expensive than the old screws so I had to bump up the price of the individual screw packs a bit. The Tricopter kit price however stays the same.

Since the screws showed up one day early the back ordered tricopters will start shipping out tomorrow instead of monday!

  1. Hi David !
    The new screws look cool 🙂
    I was wondering, for people who backordered their V3kit, will it come with the new screws ? 😀

    Can’t wait to see your version on the mini tri, just put electronics on that frame 😀
    Last question, do you think it’s possible to “thermo fold” the G10 frame ? (I’m not sure it’s the right name off the technique :s)

    Cheers ! 🙂

  2. Looking very slick indeed. 🙂

    Will the Mini tricopter have any special parts, or can I just order the new PDB-plates, Naze-plates and some motor mounts as soon as they are in stock?

  3. I can’t seem to reply to the sub-thread about the cap screws. The good news is that the vendor gladly accepted a return, and I ordered the button head screws to replace them.

  4. Love all the new updated parts David, just one more thing I think you could look into fixing and that is the cf arms. The surface is to rounded and induces problems with tilting motor mounts.
