    Help! Tricopter flies well, but then suddenly loses control and crashes

    Hi folks I've been flying for a while and recently got into multirotors, built a tricopter to David's design, then made a few changes and now I am up to version 3 of my own take on David's tricopter. It flies great and is the most stable and responsive tricopter I've built yet. However, I've...

    Calling All Experienced Multirotorists, beginner in need of some advice.

    I have built a tricopter and I think i have not properly matched my major components. I will start by admitting that I don't really know what I am doing. I finally put together a working machine and flew (crashed repeatedly) for a few minutes. I was experiencing a lot of problems getting a...

    Pilon racing

    I would really love the flight test guys to do some fast pylon racing with your swappables or scratch built racers, high speed, huge banking, and a high chance of things goings bad, what more would you want for a fun day with friends :D

    First crash questions

    Took out my Bixler 2 the other day for my first flight. It was glorious! Lasted a whole 8 seconds :cool: . It broke a control horn on the elevator so I couldn't try again right away. Thinking of going out and trying again this evening, just have a question: The leading edge of one of my wings...

    What happens when quad looses a motor, see the video.

    Here's a video of my DJI F450 Naza gps quad with TBS motor + ESC combo taking a dirt nap. One ESC had cold soldered connector on it from factory. Always check your multirotor escs and don't trust expensive stuff. That was lesson i learned. Makes me wonder why pay more for poor quality when you...

    Tricopter arms folding midflight

    I built David's Tricopter, didn't follow any specific version. I was flying with the KK2 v1.6. It was flying pretty well and I was doing figures of eight. Now, at one left turn, I noticed that it'd turned into a T-copter!! It was still flying stable though. After a few more seconds of flying...

For most of my flights the light was solid, I've only had one flight in which the light was flashing and I quickly lost control, fortunately, the...

    (BOOM!) Retired plane? What I did with mine :D

    This plane served me well, but it was time to retire it....It sat doing nothing for a couple months. Then i had the idea to do what any american kid/teen would do--Blow it up! So I brought out 4 cameras (canon T3i, panasonic HS900, kodak ZX3, keychain camera) and my sister and made some works...

    EPO stronger than "steel"?

    I am convinced; here's why. Coming in to land with my Durafly EPO Corsair, misjudged the proximity of some tall bushes next to the tarmac. Right wing caught the bushes and plane spun 360 degrees and skated a little ways almost cartwheeling. Broke one of the landing gear clean off. Wingtip was a...
