Bought this motor last year to used on my 500 size Quadcopter Frame.

Too bad, this motor no longer in the market today, but still can find under HItec brand, as Hitec Energy Propel with higher price tag.

Here is my New Tricopter for AP. Alien Head inspired me.
Designed to be very small for 646mm wheelbase tricopter when folded.
Basically same design as my Rudder Fin Tricopter.

The only differences are Tail Boom and Yaw Mechanism, the new tricopter can fit inside my bag.

Design Concept:
- Smallest format when folded, (can fit inside bag)
- Can convert to Y6 easily (need additional 4 motor mount and longer landing gear)
- Flight Controller position far from high current source (can use FC with built in compass)
- Direct gimbal motor mount to upper body, (can remove upper gimbal parts, save weight)
- Front camera position, same level with props, (no prop shadow hit the lens when sun position above the camera)
- All the components inside the body, (clean look, good wind resistance)
- All sensitive component far from high current source, (reduce magnetic interference)
- All wiring inside aluminum tubes (clean look, good wind resistance, reduce magnetic interference)
- Upper body isolated from main body with rubber ball, (reduce vibration to all upper components)
- Motor with built in ESC, (reduce magnetic interference, simple wiring, save weight)
- Yaw mechanism with Ball Bearing,
- Lower Tail Motor position from servo axis (no need for high power servo, but need ball bearing servo)

Component position can be seen in the drawing bellow:
- Mini Flight Controller (Dark Blue)
- Receiver (Light Blue)
- GPS with Compass (Green)
- VTX and 3DR mavlink (Pink)
- Gimbal Parts (Orange)
- High current source: Batt, Power cable, PDB, Motor, ESC (Red)
- Servo (Brown)
