Make a TRI rotor!

Post by NV1T » Thu Feb 07, 2013 3:10 pm

I hope you guys develop a TRI rotor with a servo on the back for yaw control. Much more agile, potentially less weight (and therefore more flying time). Also less noise, less rotor downwash. Think about it.

Here's a recent paper on a trirotor: http://link.springer.com/article/10.100 ... 012-0028-2

Sound interesting but it is not something we are planning. I don't see any direct obstacles we a Crazyflie couldn't be modded to a TRI rotor. You would have to cut two arms and make a new one. The servo mechanism would be challenging though.
