Looking for something new in the multi-rotor world? Well here it is!
Just when you thought that all multi-rotor frames looked the same...the Y-3 appeared on the scene and is breaking all the rules! Featuring fiberglass construction with ply reinforcement, the Y-3 is super rigid yet lightweight. Its high gloss paint job is impressive to look at making it really stand out in the air.
This is the first fiberglass Y-3 multi-rotor frame on the market today and is very unique. It will be sure to turn heads at your local flying site. It even features mounting grooves for LED light strips on top and bottom, making it perfect to setup for night flying as well!
The Y-3 arrives in KIT form with all required hardware included. You will simply need to add your own brushless motors/ESCs, multi-rotor control board, micro tail servo and lipoly battery. The Y-3 is mostly pre-built making it quick and easy to get in the air.
Features: • Unique full-body fiberglass construction • Beautiful high gloss paint job • Full body design makes for easy orientation while flying • All metal pivot tail motor mount • LED strip mounting grooves
Specs: Width: 525mm (motor shaft center to center between front arms) Length: 550mm Frame weight: 460g (w/out electronics) Flying weight: 900~950g (w/out battery)
Requires: 28-XX brushlessoutrunner motor x 3 25~40A brushlessESC x 3 High speed micro servo for the tail x 1 8x4~10x4.7 propeller x 3 (2 standard/1 reverse rotation) Multi-rotor control board 2200mAh 3S lipoly battery 4CH transmitter and receiver
I just received this frame after a long anxious wait (regret not paying for the EMS shipping). But anyway, the yaw mechanism is very nice, and well put together. However, the plywood mount on the back of the frame is not exactly perpendicular to the fuse. From all the time I spend looking at this thing, reading formus etc, it sounds like this is common.
My question is, is this part of the design, to counter the additional torque when in forward flight, or just shoddy engineering?
To straighten it up will require a decent stack of washers. Have you other folks shimmed it, or left it as is? Is there any noticeable change to the flight characteristics? Cheers
Well made, but not for beginners like myself in my opinion - I flew mine several times and had 2 or 3 very heavy landings and the Fibreglass frame did not like it - However it is still in one piece but has cracks around the arms. Not negative feedback as this is a very high quality finished product - beginners beware! I have resorted to using a home made tri frame to learn, and I will return to this frame at a later date when I can fly. Very very fast, 3x 30A Afros escs, Turnigy, 2836b (1100kw) motors, KK2.15 FC, Turnigy high speed metal micro servo, 9" Gem fan blades, 2200 3C - looked and flew awesome.
Flyes perfectly with a lot of power, with the following components:
TGY-306GHV Servo, KK2.0 Multirotor Control Board, AX2810Q-750KV Brushless Motors, Turnigy Multistar 45Amp ESC's, 9X4.5 Props. RH rotation, or 10x4.5 Props RH rotation, 9 mode Color LED strips meets perfect for a good looking Tricopter.

Got one of these a while back with a KK V 2 controller.... no directions for the copter... yaw mechanism looks impressive and had thought they should sell it as a stand alone part for tri copters but had slop in the linkage... after a few flights and a few minor bumps it appears a bearing in the yaw pivot has failed adding more slop... took it off but have not disassembled it yet to see whats bad.
