Y6 from Foxtech - any more details?


http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=5371141863

I've seen this. looks awesome. price is $300 - I'm guessing it's just for the frame? could anyone help out with translating some of this? is there some information in english somewhere? how about a flight video?

Pretty wicked looking tricopter, but $300 seems a bit expensive for just a frame.

Is it a standard tricopter though?
I can't see where/how the third rotor is tilting? No visible pivot point or servo...

Is it possible that is using a pair of counter rotating props and rpm control for yaw?

Thats not a tricopter.

Thats a Y6.
A normal quadrocopter with 6 motors in Y config.

ok, I'm still interested though $300 is a bit much without electronics, and a bit cheap with electronics assuming the back part could swivel, then one could build it as a tricopter also, no? but if it's a Y6 then it probably won't need the rotating part.

Looks like the WOV Y6 - 500 to me. Badass frame but big bucks.

EDIT: I've been beaten by a few seconds it appears.

ok, thanks. strange that they sell it under a different name and at the same price. I agree it looks badass, but $300 just for the frame is a bit hardcore. might be my 3rd or 4th tricopter. still deciding which frame to get
