I was really having fun with this build that I can't help but build a second one....and it fly amazingly the second time around.

I like the look of open and expose electronics so no plan of making a body for this one too.


KK2.1 / RC911 -R4 FW
2X- TURNIGY D2830/11 1000KV MOTORS
2X- HK 20A SIMON K's ESC's
2X- TGY-225MG Metal GEARS Servos
2X-GF Nylon 8" Props

NOTE : BOTH build has the same specs and props is up to your liking but, I recommend 8" on the 1000kv motors.

Just another KK2.1 fun project to share.
The KK2 FC has been branded as a dirt cheap particular FC but,with it's capabilities ,it can give more fun compared to all those pricey fc's.The KK2 is designed for flying, from acro to project like this and if you are really up to it , custom mixes are like endless.

.....and this CO2X KK2.1 CHINOOK is born.

Here are some close-up pix and maiden video :

Building TRICOPTERS for some are really a challenge due to, you have to deal with servo and the annoying yaw system but, NO , YOU DON'T NEED A SERVO & YAW MECHANISM at all.
On this project , I have this platform on a tricopter configuration and I have eliminated the servo and the yaw system and created a custom KK2.1 mixes to fly like a Tricopter.
No more servo to strip on a crash and no more fixing of that annoying yaw system.

Not done yet with this platform. Really wanna dismantle this all the way but, ideas are popping and worth the try...and this is another one.

It's a VTAIL configuration with the NEXT STEP motor placement...looking like a SERVOLESS PENTA...

I can't come up with the exact multi-configuration,so I just gave it a name as usual on all my build.

This idea cross my mind when a friend mentioned 'bout a TWIN SERVO VTAIL , not exactly sure what's the advantage but,the idea sounds WILD & CRAZY .....
Using a BATBONE Platform to minimize the weight considering both servos on the front motors.
KK2.1 Fc has been CUSTOMIZED to make it function and fly as I wanted.

Calling it the....BLACKCHIPPI

Yes , I lied . I was gonna dismantle this boring frame for parts but, halfway I just remember 'bout this M CLAY'S design of a VTAIL with a twisted configuration that I find very interesting, he was flying with MULTIWII Pro on his platform....and decided to build my own version using a KK2.1 RC with RC911 FW.

....and I call it

Just wanna share this last project on this platform before this unit goes to teardown and to the parts bin for the next project.

I'm not a fan of PENTACOPTERs that much but, I'm only wanted to fly and feel the way this configuration will perform up in the air.

....not bad at all and he is flying with the wind with no issue.

Well,as much as how I like TRICOPTERS , I feel that there is another way to make it more fun and interesting and this is what I come up with.

By adding another motor with bigger props by the center , it has created a new feel to it when flying ...and made it more interesting.

Another simple idea and cheap build using a KK2 FC and my Taranis X9D Tx.
This idea pop up from nowhere when I was building my scratchbuild version of the Flight Test 5 motors tricopter. It was a very simple transformation from their design...and why not this way , right ?
She is flying ok and the good thing , this is like a 2 in 1 flying platform.

....and the


is BORN.

This is not totally new to you guys,this system has been around for a while now.
Originally, the boomprop tri of IAN DAVIDSON (Inventor) was flying with APM and on this version of mine,I will be experimenting with the KK2.1.5 Fc.
Not sure of it will work perfectly but....until you try you will never know.

Here is another project that turning this old aluminum frame into another creation/face.
Been a fun build for my weekend and maiden was really interesting with a little wind and blasting sun.
Really need some tuning on the fc but,it's flying. Feel like it need bigger motors for it's on the heavy side. Might try bigger motors or dismantle it later.

Here are some close-up pix and maiden video.
