Do you think it would be easy to do? The rotating rotor clusters would need to be controlled by the Elevon mixing function in a computer radio. Any ideas on motors, rotors, etc? Anyone?
Yes I did, and it takes me 3 months of planning and building, but actually it is not a BiCopter anymore, it is a TriCopter now with a small fan in the tail to stabilize nick. So it can hover much more better and I can control it better than before (as it had the two rotors only). It had its maiden flight yesterday, but I have a lot of work now to get a better setup of the flight control board. The Samson is 880 mm long and 800 mm wide and have a weight of 1400 gramm. Board is KKmulticopter, 2 brushless park 470 with 9"x5" 3blade GWS, a 45mm EDF, 2 pcs 3Sx2200 Lipo, a lot of Depron and Vivak and UHU-Por :-)
