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
This can certainly be a major issue. I suggest you contact Rob C at the New York City support office. You will get *much* faster resolution for your problem. You can reach him via PM on rcgroups, using the PM Address: HobbykingCSNYC. The problem I've had with both of my kits is that the press fit screw studs on the rear motor mount came loose. I fixed these issues, but it's not something you should have to fix.
Well it took 2 hours on the chat site but a $20 credit was the result. Probably better than the expense of sending the frame back, covers the p.i.t.a of removing and re-fitting the mount and making it look good. You're quite right though, not something that I should have to fix.
It appears as if a frame stiffening bar has been added to this frame, as both of the ones I've purchased previously did not have the crossbar under the canopy. Of course, this can easily be added by a good craftsman. I've reinforced the frame using epoxy at the weak points (under the "wings", where the tail meets the tail strut, at the outrigger motor mounts). You can also repair this frame if you break something. It doesn't always work, but it is worth a try if you have any skill.
I also suggest using a secondary battery if you're going to add lights. I've added a Dr Mad Thrust 3A BEC with 2A switchable circuit for my 'festival' lighting system, powered by an Arduino Nano. This also powers the flight controller and the receiver. Using a 500 mAh 3S LiPo, I get 3 or 4 flights out of the secondary battery when using a 2200-2500 mAh 3S LiPo. I also power my standard navigation lighting system from this separate BEC.
I`m at 362$ (I included some extras, but they are all in Stock
My Recommended Setup:
TGY-306G Ultra Fast/High Torque MG Digital Servo
Turnigy Aerodrive SK3 - 2830-1020kv Brushless Motor
Turnigy Multistar 30 Amp Multi-rotor Brushless ESC 2-4s
APC 10x5 Props (you can use 10x4.7 SF Props too, but they`re too soft for me)
Zippy Compact 4000mah 25c 3s
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.
