I’ve drawn a complete wiring diagram of my new Tricopter. You can access an easier to read PDF version HERE. Hopefully the diagram above might help someone out using similar components but I also did it for my own reference.
The F550 Y6 Tricopter rebuild with Sony RX100 III and G40 gimbal has been moved to a new seperate page HERE.
Further details about the diagram above can be found on the new page.
After an almost complete rebuild it’s now ready for launch – when some new props arrive.
Some initial testing will be required and I may need to change some configurations.
I changed the legs from the earlier photos saving 65g.
Technical information: DJI F550 flame-wheel frame with Aimdroix extended arms, iFlight G40 gimbal, GentWIRE-MULTI remote controlled Sony RX100 III camera, NazaM V2 flight controller with iOSD (On Screen display providing in-flight information live from the craft), F12E controller with First Person View. 6600 mAh battery, expected flight time around 12 minutes.
AUW: 2.4kg, Motor centres: 56cm apart. Top props 9443, bottom props 1145 – this may change depending on efficiency.
Over the last week, I’ve been converting my F550 Hex into a Y6 Tricopter!
It’s coming together nicely with some wiring to be completed before getting airbourne with a Sony RX100M3 controlled remotely by a gentles GentWIRE-MULIT mounted on a G40 gimbal – which I plan to modify and lighten down the track. I’ve used lighter Aimdroix extended aluminium arms and have some 1145 (11 inch) props on the way.
Further details and photos can be found on the updated F550 page.
