Hobbyking X900 Tricopter Glass Fiber Multi-Rotor Frame

Hobbyking X900 Tricopter Glass Fiber Multi-Rotor Frame
Hobbyking X900 Tricopter Glass Fiber Multi-Rotor Frame

Designed from the ground-up by our own engineering team, the X900 Tricopter is a culmination of months of design, testing and material sourcing to provide you with the perfect mix of quality, performance and value. The X900 Tricopter frame is a Hobbyking exclusive meaning you won't find it anywhere else!

The X900 features a very nicely finished glass fiber main frame, shock-absorbing landing legs and folding aluminum arms. The shock-absorbing landing legs are a great feature to handle those rough landings that we all have from time to time.

The integrated tail servo mount is constructed of glass fiber as well, allowing you to mount your favorite micro/mini tail servo for yaw control. The rear motor mount pivots on a dual ball bearing supported shaft providing super smooth and precise movement. As a result, the yaw control is locked-in and very precise while flying.
 
We offer a full line of multi-rotor electronics such as multi-rotor control board, ESC, motors and more, so it has never been easier or more affordable to get your multi-rotor frame in the air!
 
All necessary hardware is included. Simply add your own electronics.

You will have to use the 11 x 5 SF props or larger on 11.1v lipo to have Sufficient lift, or go to 4s lipo, my setup on 4000mah 3s gives me 8 minutes flying time on NTM2826s motors 1200kv. will go to 6000mah 4s 30c lipo. Also look up ESC firmware reflash to Simonk Firmware on YouTube. Hope this helps you.

for the best performance you should use 8*4.5 and 25-40 opto esc

good frame for anyone who wants a Tricopter frame without having to make one, no real cons that i could see. i was abit disappointed when i saw their using plan metal wing nuts (i thought they had stoppers in the middle), plus the screw holes around the center on servo horn plate for the yaw don't line up with the holes on my servo's horn, the side slots are slightly thinner then the supplied screws but are soft enough that you can "force" a screw though (i'm using HK M.G servo). both minor issues that are easily fixed. i also made a copies of the motor mounts out of 1.5mm aluminum and placed them on top of the F.G mounts to reinforce them and give them less "flex" that some F.G mounts suffer from arms are 14mmx14mm, top plate has an okay amount of room, could fit my KK2.0 and RX(FrSky V8FR-II) on the back. I'm using 10x4.7 props with a Gopro, you will see the prop tips in the "wide" setting.

Excellent quality on the kit. The motor mounts could be stronger and stiffer but they also breaks of instead of other parts and that might be a good thing. The frame was easy to put together and all parts fits well. Instructions is a drawing of parts and enough to understand even where to put washers. I bought this frame as a cheap project for fun flying but the abillity to fold the frame easily (wing nuts so done by hand) probably makes it good for mountain trips with the frame in a back pack. Video of first flight in daylight here (first flight was under a floodlight evening before): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=inbj1XLdGek

Overall, not impressed. The poorly printed black and white, single page instructions were almost useless. The pictures on this site are enough to get you by though. The spring loaded gear legs were not located in the proper place which caused problems when installing the motor mount screws and created interference issues. You will have to drill new holes for the pivot point if you want a good fit. 18 gage motor wires will fit down the arms. The rear motor will need an exit hole drilled in the side to allow for 18 gage wires to exit. The motors should be mounted on top of the mounts, NOT on the bottom. Prp clearance is too close to the arms and prop strikes are common. The motor mounts are very weak and broke easily. I had to make new ones out of an aluminum yardstick I purchased for a few bucks. This thing is huge in overall size but has little room for a clean install of electronics. I used the KK2 board, which is awesome! However, I cannot seem to get it to hover without hunting.

After building the HK tricopter it would spin left or right, seemed like the servo could not find centre. I was using a digital servo HK recommended with the kit (HK922) and tried everything on the KK2 board with no luck. What did work was not using the HK servo plate that came with the kit and a double server arm instead with a full size servo (Goteck GS-9650BB) After that it flew with no problems. The instuction are no good, but looking at the pics on this page help.

I wish you could go back and edit what you write, because after burning out my plastic gear servo, my tricopter went back to spinning again with the new servo. Solution, was the gyros were working backwards because the servo was mounted upside down, which can be fixed by going positive 100 or negitive 100 or just mount your servo the other way. This is my first tricopter and am now happy with this frame.
