This is about as far as my career in FPV has come so far. The Tricopter is currently in a box in a state of disrepair. My homemade yaw mechanism, while effective and perfectly slop-free, is very fragile and a voracious consumer of servos. The landing gear is 2mm music wire.

Perhaps this project will be revisited in the future, but for now the FPV gear is migrating to a mini-quad.

I finally learned how to edit videos.

This is my first Dogfighter, which has since been written-off. I lost orientation and smashed it into this big planet that got in the way.

My second one suffered a stall on launch while attempting a different (4-cell) power setup and took some damage, but it's not completely destroyed. No video of that one as yet.
