Work on the tri-copter is finished : ( until I add FPV...)

I bought all the gear to build mine before Camperdown.
(G'day to everyone I met while I was there.)
I came home feeling inspired and started Sunday night.
I want a 'clean' setup, I'm using box carbon for the booms so I can run the wiring up the middle out of sight.

HK has a heap of cheap fiberglass canopies for a few bucks, or plastic ones for under a dollar. The skids are from their generic 450 heli and cheap as chips too. I got a few other carbon bling bits for a few dollars more to be added at a later date.

3 X 2213N 800Kv Outrunners.
3 X GWS EP Propeller RD-9047 228x119mm
3 X Turnigy Plush 25A ESCs.
4 X Hobby King 401B AVCS Digital Head Lock Gyros.
1 X AR6255 Spektrum Rx.
1 X low voltage alarm.
1 X 2200mAh 3S LiPo.

Fuselage is almost finished , wiring is about to begin.
All soldering finished. (Over 50 connectors !)
Need to mod the gyros, then they can be positioned.

Lots of air time now.
Just built a new yaw mount to eliminate the slop in the old one.
