@Jakub J:
so if you want to shoot video or photos in a professional manner, you are forced to point camera downwards or else one prop will ruin your footage.
For me this is a big advantage of the Y frame.
Also renatoa points another significant improvement, getting rid of yaw servo.

Right!
But why not use bigger TRI? Will be cheaper, simpler and no problem with
props in footage too? Or quad with proper camera mount (under props)?

If you fly with proffesional (expensive) equipment you want
to have real redundancy I think. Y6 don't offer this...

@jakub j:
Bigger tri's are difficult because of larger props needed. So they have bigger spinning inertia so the response time to balance the tri will increase to the point it can't fly stable at all.
Also professional product "Dragan Fly" (Y6) states they have engine failure redundancy.

I can't imagine how to control Y6 without one props, or without two

I'll try with Yx but in this configuration:


Still no real redundancy, but payload bigger than Y6.
And very easy to make foldable frame...

EMAXs are in local store (sometimes ) or in HK.
EPP from mikrokopter.de

Just an attempt to defuse the Triwars taking place , how about this for a compromise then?

Mine too is very sturdy, what broke was the servo case
It is burried somewhere in the signguy thread.
Asking only because some people seems to hate this part of a tri.

Nice looking
But in case of direct hit you will have a lot of small pieces

Ps. Maybe this way?

Thats what I'm expecing, not perfect flight but certainly a controlled crash is possible.

PS. Whats the spec on that Bird? FC, motors etc

Right, it is flying. Without payload...

To safe flying we need big spare thrust in case of losing propeller/motors.
I think that we need octo or even more motors for really safe flying
with DSLr or heavy camera...
