Lightbulb Buidl-report: Scratchbuild mushroom TriCopter :)

Hi there folks


the weather over here is Terrible! Raining cats + dogs.. 7 to 8 BF or wind.. And it's COLD.
I had planned to do some flying and driving video's, but no such luck!


So.. Great weather to do another build! I'm going to be building an experimental TriCopter this time..
I have no idea if this thing will actually fly, BUT we will find out I guess


Here is my project kick-off.. In which I will show the basic shape / idea:

I'll put a list of the parts used in the video-description of the video's..

And YES! It's alive Here is a video of it's maiden flight
Offcourse I took it a bit slow this time, but the thrust-vectoring tail works like a charm
