Tricopter version 2.0 is done.

As I announced before, I bought the KK controller on www.kkmulticopter.kr controlled by Atmel processor.

 

It all came up from one of the discussion participants on RcGroups who is called KaptainKuk. So KK controller from there. Production took a Korean producer, worked on integrating the gyros plate and sold it all for the low price, $120 including freight.

So the Tricopter v 2.0 was born. I completely rebuild the body, the only arms and motors remain. I replaced the controllers and I changed the body for folding arms in transit. I also had to solve the camera mount.

The whole I've got it together, the motor spins, probably even fly. But for that i still have to wait, because we are now quite windy weather and it's not exactly the best time to tests or first flight.

Here are some pictures of the reconstruction. After the first flight, I'll write a detailed blog with construction details.
