Homemade tricopter #2

I have started making a second Dragonfly tricopter.  I will be uploading some photos soon.

Dragonfly 2 is smaller than the original Dragonfly (mainly because I just used cut-offs for the spars) and includes some 3D printed parts.

Specifically the motor mounts, the tail rotor assembly and the landing strut feet. These were designed by me in FreeCAD.  The feet were printed by my Brother Alasdair and the other parts were printed by my friend Bill.


Here is a short video of a twilight flight of the Dragonfly with the LED's switched on.

My plans for the Dragonfly tricopter are now online.

I am still refining the build instructions for them but if you have any questions please email me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Proposed project:

Dragonfly will be another homemade tricopter and will be based on Tricopter #1.
