Works pretty good right out of the bag it came in, rates at 75% all around, any higher and it got the twitchies, lol. My very first tricopter build and second indoor flight ever. Boards easy to set up and works well, just follow the the esc and throttle programming. prior to flying, cheers

Yep! I love these for tricopters. Like you, I love the Tcopter too. Its provides a great platform for taking video too should you ever want to do that too. Mount your cam between the front rotors and move your battery further back to counter weigh the camera so your CG stays in tact. I shot some video with a hard mounted camera from my Tcopter and even though I had the dip switch in acro (forgot to change it back before shooting video), it still flew quite stable. All the best and Happy flying!

Great video, I watched it before when I was considering a tri or quad. I have all the parts on order and am also building a "simplecopter", Matt Hall "tilt". That one will have my rangelink and fatshark fpv setup on it. These things sure have a lot of power.

I did everything. Throttle calibration, stick centering. But the quad starts shaking vigorously even before it takes of the ground.

The manual tells to put all 4 jumpers at off position for aerocopter (fixedwing). When using a seperate delta mixer put the i86 between the reciever and mixer. M1 to aileron servo, (M2 for reverse) / M3 to Elevator servo (or Rudder), (M4 for reverse)

Just got done installing the board and hooked everything up in tri-copter mode. Everything seems to be working properly with one exception. When I go to lock mode, the motors run at top speed for a couple seconds before shutting down. Doesn't seem safe or normal to me. I've tried everything I can think of. Any ideas?

I just saw. Seems the SimonK ESCs are the culprit. :(

Experienced the same, when powered and without throttle, giving full pitch forward triggers the esc's to turn the motors at full speed. Try different lock combination..

Mine twitches and pulses the props for just a split second, they do spin on their own for five or so rotations but mostly just rolling after the pulse, mines not dangerous to the fingers but ive read alot of rcgroups info where they do spin up fully and fly off the ground and crash, these boards dont like the simonk prograqmming which have a tendency to be very responsive and powerful which is a bonus for tri's and quad. Solution is to complete your flight and then just unplug the battery without locking, no real danger is your always careful..

A warning to those using SimonK's firmware on their ESCs. When you disarm this board it gives a short full throttle pulse. Simons firmware is sensitive enough to detect this and as a result disarming is very unsafe. I found a thread on this issue and it seems that other ESCs work fine. Three stars because Simons firmware is popular and this should have been tested. I was using Hobbyking F-20A ESCs flashed with SimonK firmware version tgy_2012-06-10_d8f53c2. The i86 was setup as a Quad X 4 copter on normal mode. Credit me if this saves your face.

Was up in the air in less than 1 hour. super easy to get everything together. Make sure you get the male to male servo leads so you can connect your RX. Credit if you find helpful. Thanks!!

I think this control board has very dangerous bug. Just sometimes happend symptom that all rotor was rotate full rpm after disarmed action after landed. So, my 3rd quadcopter has been literally distroyed.. It's really danderously.. Anybody has same symptom?

I was used in the X4-copter.
The control board was not very stable.
Is regrettable.
I want to change the firmware.
