I saw The 6 motor Tricopter that Snoop uses in the castle rescue video and I like that!

I have 3 spare DT750's lying here - just wondering if the original KK 5.5 board has a programming that would allow that?

I don't want to change boards or spend vast amounts of money, just hoping there's a way on the cheap to do that and increase my lifting power! :)

I believe that you need to flash it... but the type of copter is called a Y6, check out the flash versions it should be there.

Is that a true Y6, or is it set up as a tricopter with each pair of motors acting as one (coaxial Tri)? (you'd still need a tail servo because this is effectively an odd number of motors).

^------ Exactly, need that info as well!!!!

Assuming it will require 3 more ESC's as well.........

Thanks!!
