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 my Y3 and it looks great except that the rear wooden "firewall" is off by about 10 degrees or more. The left side viewed from the rear is in quite a bit more than the right side. This gives offset to the centerline of the motor about 1/2 an inch or more. The vertical seems to be fine. I can shim it out if need be. Is this normal or should I I mount the assembly on the centerline of the fuselage with no offset at all. Sure hope someone will answer me as I can't wait to get this new bird in the air! Thanks ahead of time.
Hi Mate, ive got two of these and the first one i bought was crooked like yours - being quite cheap i purchased another to see if they would be the same but the second one was straight as.. ive flown both and weirldly the offset one flew so straight it wasnt funny-conclusion the crooked one is my favourite it flies like a dream and the straight one i had to trim the pi settings on kk2.1 not updated version amd it still isnt anywhere near as smooth as crooked c-3
Hope this helps :)
Oh sorry man. Yup I know what you mean. My C3 had so many little problems. I had to grind down the metal bit where the servo went and a few more things that I am loathe to mention as it may make me look stupid...not sure. But as it goes...shims sound darn good to me. You could go a little crazy and try to rip the bulkhead out and reset it...but it is probably not a good idea...which you would already know...sorry man. They're not the greatest built tri but darn if they don't look good In the air.
1 thumbs up!
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.
super tricopter, original, je le fais tourner avec 3 turnugy 2822/17,un servo corona 919 mg, helise 8045 et carte hk kk2.0

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.
