...Thank u for sharing...

Neat concept, I'm thinking of remixing it to use a CCD board cam instead of a mobius though... I have a spare board cam, but no mobius... It should also significantly help to print on smaller build-plates. (Kossel mini I have is a 17cm diameter circle...) I like the look of it a lot.

Maybe it needs some landing gear? So you don't always hit the tail servo/assembly first when coming in horizontal?

Thinking of replacing my HobbyKing Trifecta Frame (looks nice, but beside that its Horrible) i just wonder do you actualy race through the Mobius AV out?

what is the model of the camera and other fpv equipment you used? And could you give a more detailed parts list? Like screws tape and stuff like that.

What are the exact parts you used for this, I want to make it.

This is the list i'm gone use:
servo: http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/__17322__Turnigy_8482_TGY_9018MG_MG_Servo_2_5kg_0_10sec_13g.html
motors: DYS 1806 2300kv
ESC's: SN20A
Naze32 FC
Mobius
And some fpv gear and lipo's I have lying here

amazing . thank u for sharing
can we have some photos for internal parts.?

Can you please share more details about you electronics.
Which motors, ESC and battery did you use?
How does your wiring looks like on the inside?
Is it overpowered or underpowered?
What is your flight time?

After browsing Thingiverse for all kind of multicopters, I found a V-tail quadcopter...

My next though was, how to make a V-tail look cool?!

The obvious answer is: Make a TriRace tricopter into a V-tail quad! Your model is a perfect candidate for remixing into a V-tail! Would you consider making a frame for that? Or could you share your files so I could try to do that? Could even be a bolt on solution to replace the tail rotor, that way this could be a Tri- Quad- and a Quad with V-tail.

Once again. Love the look of this copter! (a V-tail is the only thing to make it cooler!)

This thing looks great! Could you please show some pictures of the inside, just to show how you did the electronics? A list of your electronics could be nice, there are to much different stuff to get, to many motors, esc's, servos and so on...

I just need to change my hotend, and then I'm printing this!

Love your colorscheme!

The Fuselage won't fit on a Makerbot Replicator 2. Need to split the Fuselage in half with interlocks that can be glued / screwed together.

With an ultimaker It fits :)
You can try to glue. It's easyer to do that with pla and acetone as glue.

I'm just trying to help your design to be more accommodating to all...not just those with an "Ultimaker".

Looking over the design, I think I have an easy solution. Shorten the tail by 15mm. Then lengthen the support_anticouple by 15mm. That would make the Fuselage small enough for the Replicator 2, yet not affect the length of the tail for rotor clearance, and coupling effects.

Just a thought.

I was just kidding.
I'll think about your idea for the next update. Could you give me the printing area of a replicator ?

I'd love to print this one as I already have the dr6 (waiting on fc for it) as it would go really well in my collection but again I'm let down by the print size, I have the ctc creator with similar dimensions to the replicator 2 only my bed is 250x150x150mm
I managed to get the dr6 printed with a join in the frame but with this I wouldn't know where to begin.

The Replicator 2 print area (plate) is 28.5 L X 15.3 W X 15.5 H CM [11.2 X 6.0 X 6.1 IN]

Total novice here... What's the white lolly sticking out of the back for?

That's a FPV cloverleaf antenna in a plastic case.

I think you're talking about the hot glue I used to fix the servo ?

Those are so the tri-copter can turn. it will allow the rear blade to shift position so it can turn.
