Carbon SCARAB TriiKopta v2.2 Delrin™ - Electronica - with Roll Gimbal for GoProHeroHD2
The worlds strongest creature is the Scarab beetle, thought by the Egyptians to have rolled the sun across the sky. We are commercial photographers / FPVpilots ourselves and we live to make our airframes efficient and stable for photography. We live for soft sunlight and beautiful video images. The V2.2 Delrin SCARAB Carbon Tricopter is the best Tricopter money can buy for AP Ops. This is an ARF kit - with full rotating tailboom and GoProHeroHD2 gimbal mount -Full Carbon Electronica version - it requires assembly - INCLUDES electronics, gimbal, servos and engines and controller. Has the properties of a strong CENTRAL carbon CORE - with three decks - PARIS v4r6 is mounted on a TOP-DECK - slender booms & light weight mounts have been designed to reduce airflow drag and tested to improve stability and give LONG flight times. Central to the design is the idea that it has to be strong but light weight ; aerodynamically clean and efficient with low drag under the propeller wash zone ; Use of the common 12mm helicopter tailboom parts to provide a cheap replaceable crumple zone in the event of a crash ; that part being quickly replaced at the flying site (or simply replaced with a spare boom-pod without needing a full rebuild or a soldering iron at the flying site). Everything is plug-in - No Soldering required :). The front booms can be rotated/offset by small increments to provide positive-offset-thrust lines rather than the poor yaw control associated with rectangular boom frames. This is critical for Aerial photography where multicopter have good stability but slow yaw corrections.
FlyPixUK making movies flying his TriiKopta FPV Scarab - TriiKoptas are faster and more stable than quads
FilmMaker CrazyJ - California USA - Maiden flight of his Scarab TRiiKopta (above) in strong winds - Paris Sirius 600 CPU/IMU 2.0 Code -
This pilot has advanced RC skills - If you are a beginner please dont think you can do this - CrazyJ has RC experience and pilot skill = confidence = control.
It is a good demonstation of the ability of the TriiKopta to deliver yamazing results and even do aerobatics with a GoProHeroHDv on board

SCARAB TriiKopta V2 Features
Strong central core - 2mm 3K twill 90° weave FULL carbon - 3 layer decks (included)
3 Slender removable tubular booms (2 x sets are included - CF and Aluminium sets)
NEW rotating tailboom with embedded metal gear servo
New V2 engine locks

Positive yaw control. The Tail rotor provides a special feel that no other multicopter can provide - mainly because yaw control is not mixed with attitude control like all other multicopters
Our custom made CarbonBird motors have factory extented wires - Wires are installed internally
Long flight times due to low weight and streamlined slender carbon booms - 10-15mins (depending on density altitude/temp and flying style)
Simple strong and light weight CF Carbon Fiber engine mounts and new v2 metal locks (included)

Stable in wind - Can be flown indoors or outdoors in high wind
PC and Mac compatible tuning - Radio Tx and PARIS tuning via USB - requires PC skills to load drivers and JAVA
v2.2 Version now features Delrin™ boom holders and rotating boom holders !
Optimised for AP/FPV Tricopter (designed to be fitted with a GoPro® Hero HD camera - pre-installed mount on the front - see photo - GoPro camera is NOT included)
Standard 620mm diameter between opposite engine centres (booms can be cut shorter if required for stunt filming)
Carbon Landing Gear is pre-drilled.
Weight - CarbonTriikopta v2.2 DelrinSCARAB 12 typical weight with engines and all electronics; with 2 metal gear servos ; with Gimbal in 760grams (with CarbonBird® engines) or 965grams with GoProHeroHD2 in underwater housing -
Recommended 4SLiPo battery weight is 195-280g on top of that 4S2250. Adding a bigger LiPo is not smart! - rather buy several of the correct sized - return & land - change LiPo - fly again - Use Quannum Telemetry ALWAYS for individual cell monitoring. A light weight Tricopter is a gift from heaven - a heavy tricopter is dog - so We strongly recommend you understand this issue of weight of silly sized LiPos!
Included props are 4S 9050 Triples available on this site. These super light high RPM props are so safe because they are soft plastic and represent a NON-lethal alternative to dangerous TREX style aerial camera solutions.

Information on assembling a kit can be gained by looking at the photos on the product page itself. If you stuck on an advanced kit
then first read the Quad Noobs guide
MultiCopters should hover at 50% throttle and fly for 10-15 mins.
Balance all props - vibration causes junk sensors data and gello in video - remove the SOURCE of the vibration by balancing
Use a quality prop balancer(Du-Bro 499 Tru-Spin Prop Balancer)
statically; then run them individually to check they are centred true and the tipshave the same path; any vibration will reduce the
effectiveness of the Wii gyro or anyother gyro.
Attach any IMU or sensors such as Sirius™, NAZA or WookM with vibration isolation gel - Board with sensors solder to directly
are just cheapo clones - commercial quality IMU use isolation vibration materials
Keep your PROPS OFF - not installed - until
you are fully conversant/understand in full the functions of your Tx in full including TRAV (end Points), the arm and disarm procedures
- realise that for a noob skiping or out-of-order set-up steps or moving sticks, or even static -
PROPS may start at anytime without warning. Never install props
prior to calibration of the ESC and testing the gyro orientation, and arm/disarm testing of the board - YOU are responsible - make
sure your actions and your Copter is safe - remove the prop -remove the risk.
Always maiden on default PIDs' - If the copter is not almost perfect on default PID's then DO NOT go straight to altering
the PID's! Most of the problems you will face as a noob will be caused by making wild assumptions or following myths from forums
- fly on default PIDs first - balance your props - make sure your ESC are calibrated and synchronized.
Dont be fooled by forum claims of kirby flashed ESCs - this software will melt your ESCs and give short flights - there is a lot
of bad info on forums
Safety in Australian Skies
Keep more than 30m from persons,choose an empty sports field for your first flights
Do not fly near pets, houses or cars
Never fly within 3nm of an airfield or above 400ft
Never install your props until after the Multicopter is fully tested and 100% correct without props. Engines can start
suddenly and without warning IF YOU FAIL to understand how they work or skip any steps.
Set your Tx/Rx binding to low throttle 1/4 position so that if the link is lost the copter will descend slowly.
Always keep your Copter in line of sight for one pilot ops - FPV is only legal in AU with a buddy on a buddybox -
2 person FPV is 100% legal using the buddybox system below 400'. See CASA Part 101 Regs
RC Flying is a privilege - please enjoy it. Don't show off and don't get over confident
Home movies are fine, but in Australia professional paid photography or videos from an RC aircraft requires
CASA Part 101 compliance, including exams and approved ops manuals and pilot competency tests by CASA official
which will cost several thousand up front.
