Tricopters very nearly achieve the mechanical complexity seen in present day helicopters. A Tricopter uses unique servomechanism to maneuver with only three odd rotors. It enjoys immense craze among aviation enthusiasts, because of its exceptional efficiency and emerging applicability!
Starting from the very basics, the Tricopter workshop provides students with hands-on experience in aeromodelling a radio-controlled Tricopter. The instructions given in the workshop are projected to encourage innovative working knowledge of modern aviation systems – the best engineering lesson yet!
