You're tempting me with this FPV Dream Machine airframe... Must resist the force.
yeah man it was a crazy flight indeeed! get the frame i guaruntee it will be the best frame youve ever bought. i flew the crap out of the 1.3 then i told luis what needed to be fixed then i flew the crap out of 1.4 and we made some more changes all untill it was perfect. this tricopter was built to be the best hands down. this thing is in a whole other league than the other tricopters on the market today like example fpvmanuals, rcexplorer, multiwii. those are the very tiny tris with no room. i have had over 50 fpv flights with my fpv manuals frame and man that thing was cramped there was zero space. the fpvdm has tons of space and im using 1.3ghz vid gear on it insstead of crappy 5.8ghz that would barely fit on my fpvmanuals frame. I dont get any money for any frames that Luis (owner of myrcbuild.com) sells i was simply the tester and half developer. the frame is a great price and its super strong so chances of you breaking anything would be limited to a boom or prop. trust me while i was beta testing i crashed alotttttt lol. if you buy a different tri frame i can pretty much promise you every time you crash youd be breaking more than a prop or boom.

As much as I want to get one, I have to save up for a GoPro 2 camera first before getting another tricopter frame since I already have fpvmanuals tricopter frame.

Perhaps I can ask Santa for it this Christmas.

Dude my fpv manuals frame isn't even put together anymore everytime it hit the ground so much broke and I hate how you have to drill those stupid side slices for the mount screws. That frame is just ok and really to me should just be used for line of site flying with just z gopro on it. Bc anymore than that and there's no room. I have a full kit most of it's brand new accept the motor mounts and yaw system. Everything else is still in the packaging if you want it for spare parts it's yours for $70

I agree with you about the grooves that have to be made on the booms for fpvmanuals tricopter frame. They are a pain to make. No offense, but I rather put that $70 towards the FPV Dream Machine if I decide to get one.

Once I get the GoPro2, I'll start saving up for the FPVDM.

In fact, I just put up my Realflight 6 simulator for sale, so I can get some money to pay for the GoPro 2. In case you're interested or anyone following this thread, here's the link to its classified ad.

Suggestion for the landing gear

Is there way the landing gear can be made so that they are mounted forward as oppose to being mounted along the boom?

Here's a photo of my fpvmanual tricopter. The landing gear is made of the PVC pipe. They are just clamped with aluminum strips, bolts, and nuts. Do you see how I mounted them? I mounted them, so that they are facing forward instead of along the booms (i.e sideways).

To me, they're more appealing to look at this way...



And you're right, no much room for anything.

Can the motor cage of FPVDM protect DT750 motors or does it only protect certain type of motors?

Have you asked Luis if the motor cage will fit a DT750 motor?

Also, how long did you make the arms of the FPVDM v1.5 shown in the video you made?


I've been following this thread here and on FPVLab.com... A couple members of the FPVLab.com members (RootCanalGuy and Airbagit) had trouble installing the landing gear, they ended up sanding a groove in the booms to make them fit.
