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.
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.
Some amazing scenery above Hobart, the Derwent Estuary and kunanyi – Mt Wellington from the F550 with iLook.
Highlights from flights 30-60.
Peirsons Point – Bruny Island
Chimney Pot Hill
Montrose Bay – MONA
Huntingfield – Northwest Bay
Hobart Cenotaph (with respect, Lest We Forget.)
The F550 is flying great! Getting more adventurous as I gain more confidence in the craft – and myself. It’s a pleasure to fly and we’ve had some lovely weather windows providing oportunity to get creative. Can’t wait to get a better camera and gimbal on the hexacopter. Leaning towards the Gopro4 Black because of weight and price, also considering the Sony RX100 III for better image quality for post proccessing. These are edited stills from the iLook+, you work with what you have 🙂
