Thanks Eugene. I should have included ground shots as there's around 2.5 to 3 feet. I snow blowed another 7 inches this morning....

Thanks for the info on the parts Big Jim.
I shall look them up shortly.
Hoping to do a bit of fixed wing AP as well as multirotor this year.
I will have to brush a bit of dust of the fixed wing models !

Troynh,

Very impressive. You can't get any smoother or more stable than that.

extended legs for Trifecta

Jeff at (ImpactRc) produces 3 different extended legs for the Trifeca.
I got the +30mm legs (he makes +40mm and +50mm legs for those that wont
more ground Clarence.
Super Strong and the +30mm lags I got are only 1.7g over the stock legs.
You cant go wrong with these extended legs. Give your self a set of these.
The Pic shows, Top are the stock and bottom are the +30mm legs.
A happy customer
Dale

Edit: Just received a set of +50mm legs from Impact RC. If you are going to run a 4 cell battery, you mite won't a set of these.
See pic on right side.

Now then guy's, have a look at this if you haven't already come across it.

Presents some interesting ideas on design and construction.

Ignoring all the extras it does give an interesting idea for frame design. I could see the possibility of a very lightweight but rigid frame.

O.K I am editing it so as to actually include the link !

Love the Y6 Tim. I always have admired your use of wood on frames. Still fly my old wooden Tim's T-Copter from time to time. And it still flies great.
