How tough is the learning curve on a tricopter if you already know how to fly planes but are not already a helo flyer? Is there a build thread on this one?

Jack,

The Tricopters are easier to fly than a 450 size helicopter and they are way, way more durable. They can handle some wind, they can do flips and rolls. A good 450 heli will have more capabilities in the right hands, but it has a steeper and more expensive learning curve.

If you are not a heli pilot than you would do better to spend some time with a 4 ch beginner heli and/or some simulator time first.

Lots of Tricopters and Quadcopters in the multirotor and also in the FPV forum.
