oh man...that makes me wanna make tricopter tiny...love it!
Sweet maiden! A maiden at night huh? You are braver than me! You now have a tricopter that can fit through any tiny gap... have fun!
I think with the OP board arm length becomes irrelevant, it just handles it and you'd never know it was a teeny tricopter, except when doing aerobatics. I've got an OP but I've got 2 quads, 4 tri, 1 octo, and a Y4... and a list of new configurations I'd like to try, so the $15 kk board for the win!
Hahaha thanks guys, yeah I cant wait to fly her again tonight! Yeah Flying Monkey it flys just like my 18'' since I have it dumbed down right now. When I trust her I will up all the rates for aerobatics.
FPV is not a crime!
My tri got a bit smaller... 10" arms, 17" from shaft to shaft. 26 ounces AUW. Will fly for 18 minutes with fpv gear. Before the fpv gear got installed I did a 20.5 minute hover! It absolutely cannot tolerate wind though. If I'm cruising around it's okay but in a hover it'll start oscillating each time a gust of wind comes by. With two batteries it should be more stable and tolerant of wind though, plus close to half hour flight time!! Woohoo, now if it'd just stop raining!
Looking very good man, still amazed with our flight times. Ill have to go do a hover test tonight and see how long she stays up for. Hovering in place for 15 minutes sounds painfully boring though.

Flying monkey, your tri is pretty compact too. I did an 18min hover with my trictoper once...super boring!! Won't do it again
Chad, how's this little guy doing? need to see some speedy runs!
Did some flights last night... Even a little breaze upsets it and it definately doesn't like descending. I'm going to try flying with two batteries to see if the extra weight helps. Otherwise I'm going back to 12" arms as a minimum. I might keep this frame and try it with NX-4008's later (when I can afford them) since they have LOTS of torque and can respond quicker. A better FC would help too.
