Tricopter Build series – Which parts? [Part 1]

Hello again.

Since the last time i posted a blog update i decided i wanted to build a tricopter instead. This will be done the same way as i did with the quadcopter series, only a little more detailed. I will be uploading the series with only a few days in between the videos, as well as posting the updates here on the blog. I am also currently working a “Complete tricopter guide” where i will be making a full write up on how to make the tricopter. This will be published in a few weeks.
