why for try tri .TRY Y4.
Why dont we see more tri copters.
I think the answer is obvious.
But any how a Y4 quadcopter fits the same footprint flies like a quad and without a servo to complicate the mix .

So I do have to ask, as really, you are the fellow to ask. I believe you've seen this: https://rotorbuilds.com/build/22212 which is completely inspired by this Y4 build of yours. And I see you say the yaw was squirrely, but was it spinning out in just one direction like mine have been? And if not, I wonder what your secret is (other than sheer, bonkers willpower to make flying monsters)? Any insights? I'd be very grateful...

I got my Y4 flying! I can barely believe it. I reversed all of the motor directions so the front motors spin outwards now, and flicked the slider in BF, and bingo, it flies just fine. And yes, mine's a bit skiddy at the back in certain circumastances, and definitely not an acro beast, but a nice smooth cruiser. I quite like it. Thanks for your help again. Much obliged! :-)

Haha! You might be right, just a little TLC, and it was good to go ;-)

Oh my god, that standoff squishing in the backend :D as usual, my quad hero. even the fact that u inverted the front motors, probably better for centre of thrust anyways?

How does she fly? I hear stacking motors like your tail section robs you of some thrust (I've heard the 30% less idea a few times). I assume the lower tail rotor is getting some pretty choppy air, do you notice anything wierd when you are flying?

Hi It flies like a quad . yaw responce is a little squirly but i havent noticed any lack of poke.A bit like drifting in my capella.
Look it up id link it if i could music video my miss spent youth.

I think hands down you have the best creations ever - the name kwadkenstine is spot on. I'm just waiting for somebody to quad up a Japanese sexbot. It's gonna happen.

Thanks . I try and keep things simple and made from stuff that everyone can get or use. I like excercises in lateral thinking and basic hand skills .The more you fail the more you succeed.

Good evening gentlemen. I have been on this site for quite some time. This is my first post .I'm posting to say only this. Quadstar and Kwadkenstine are truly people after my own heart. Your work is tremendous the both of you. If it's ok with you both I'll PM you soon with some of my own ideas? Peace and Love

AirbladeUAV has done it again and this time they've brought long range to the 5" class! Based on the popular Transformer Mini, the new Transformer 5" Ultralight adopts a lot of the same design philosophies with larger props and more payload capacity. It can fly upwards of 20 minutes on a 4 cell Li-Ion battery pack and in ideal conditions it's got a range of over 4 to 5 miles. In this guide I'll walk..

With the release of the DJI FPV Drone cinematic FPV has become a lot more accessible, but you certainly don't want to crash a $750 drone! The QAV-CINE Freybott is a compact, lightweight cinematic FPV drone that can take a hit and keep going. It's a lot safer to fly indoors and around people. With a naked GoPro or the SMO 4k you can capture some great stabilized footage. In this guide I'll show you..
