Building a Tricopter... Slowly
#1
Wink 
I first came across information on tricopters a few years ago and over time started collecting parts and doing research. I will Chronicle my  experience here. Smile

Any other Tri or Quad builders out there?

So I have been studying the Tri's built by Signguy on rcgroups and David at rcexplorer and am basing what I'm doing on that foundation.

The first parts I cut were made of acrylic and far too  fragile. My advice would be don't go this route.
Damn they looked good but just weren't suitable. Sad

So on the next go round I laser cut the parts from 1/8" plywood and hardboard.
