now about the yaw mechanism of the tricopter, is there a simple method of doing it? The crank shaft way has been explained here, but a few closer picture and some explanations would be of great help..

David has all the info you need on his site: -> http://rcexplorer.se/
Look under Projects and Educational.
I use his yaw mechanism described in Tri 2.0. Works really good for me.

Happy Building.

Tricopter not lifting up

Tricopter is not lifting up...everything's running fine,motors rotating,Hobbyking V2 board flashed with tricopter firmware,it is getting armed..sometimes one arm is lifting up..most of the times the tricopter remains on ground even with full throttle.

Any help,any advice regarding this would be great..please help!

I am using Hobbyking SS 25 A escs which donot beep when programmed and calibrated with the board,but they rotate the motors synchronously.

Motors-Turnigy 750 kV,14 A max, 800 gm thrust with 9*6 props, Turnigy lipo battery 2200 mah,25 C,3S.

The AUW is 900 gms(including battery)..Help please

have you mount the prop right?
CCW rotation is a regular prop (e.g 8045)
CW rotation is a pusher prop (e.g 8045R or 8045P).
place all props while the letters on it are facing up.
also check that you connect all motors to the right ports.

Yes Sir,motors are rotating in anticlockwise direction,and the props have their face upwards(i.e the 9*5 writing upwards), I also have checked that with all CCW,all CW,combination of both keeping in mind that the air is exerted downwards...I am not being able to post a video of the tricopter..its not uploading,i am trying...
