RC Tricopters

What are RC Tricopters and How to Get Started?

A RC Tricopter applies the same concept of RC Helicopters except that it is propelled by three vertical rotors as opposed to on the latter. Tricopters are also equipped with three motors, out of which one of them is vectored. Just like other types of RC Aircraft, you can either choose to buy RTF (Ready to Fly) Tricopters of build one from scratch. If you choose the latter, you will need a list of components to include motors, gyros, BEC, battery and ESC's. When selecting the best motor to add to your RC Tricopter Design, checkout, T 34 RC Tank keep in mind that the lower the Kv rating, the more the thrust resolution, which simply means that motors under 1000kv are a great fit for entry level Tricopters.

In terms of thrust resolution, the drive system must be configured to deliver the highest amount possible. To define thrust resolution, it is the amount of increase and decrease in movements that is produced as the gyro or RC Tricopter Controller communicates with the ESC (Electronic Speed Control) to change power also look at, RC Hovercrafts to the motors. Propellers are one of the most significant components of a RC Tricopter, and in order to choose effective ones, they must demonstrate low weight and pitch in order to achieve the highest thrust resolution.

Each motor is fitted with an Electronic Speed Control Circuit, and the throttle of each of them is governed by a separate channel that houses checkout, RC Slope Gliders a gyro between the receiver and ESC. This combination gives the RC Tricopter its class leading stability by adjusting the speed of each motor individually.

Should I build my own Tricopter or buy a RTF?

Building your very own Tricopter is fairly straightforward, and can be an ideal activity for both beginners and seasoned RC Enthusiasts.
