Just because you may have outgrown your Legos and Erector sets does not mean the fun has to stop. Introducing RotorBits, the modular construction set of endless possibilities. Based on the idea of standardized connections and dimensions, the only limit to what can be built is your imagination.
The RotorBits Tri-Copter is an ingenious adaptation of the RotorBits modular parts, to create a unique simplistic take on the much loved and great flying tri-copter. One of the unique Bits used in the Tri-copter, is the gear meshed tilt mechanism. The tilt mechanism takes the previously complex motor tilt assembly and simplifies it down to just two gears and a servo. The modular tilt unit can just slip on to any RotorBits 10mm shaft. The brightly colored TRI center plate has 45x45mm integrated mounting posts for the flight controller and various provisions for adapting other accessories and bits. The landing skids have a zip-tie breakaway design and moon lander rounded cup feet for ground skimming fun. The simplistic modular idea makes assembly a snap, bringing fun back to a sometimes over complex idea.
RotorBits components can be interchanged between multiple projects, allowing you to mix and match to your heart's content! As your collection of Bits grows and concepts evolve, you'll find that the possibilities are endless. Who knows what you'll come up with next! RotorBits is an idea that can never be outdated, only reconfigured.

What a fantastic product at a rock bottom price. Bought two (one being built and one for spares).
Goes together easily but did have to modify the servo mount slightly and a tiny amount of slop in the tilt mechanism was corrected by a small drop of glue. No big deal for both and at this price, it is still an absolute bargain.cumple con mi expectativas. se ve fabricado con muy buena calidad y muy ligero.
deberia llevar los taladros del carbono hechos.Surprisingly heavy and there is a lot of slop in the servo connection. Most of the slop can be removed by gluing the components together though. Quite enjoying it so far.The RotorBits Tricopter is simple yet elegant and easy to put together! It's like Lego for big kids and can easily be assembled with little knowledge in the area. I love the colour scheme and it is easily orientated in the air. The landing gear is sturdy and the zip-ties hold together really well. My only criticism (and the reason I gave the quality one less star) is because I had do some rectification the servo-tilt section and the gears. The servo they recommended/showed in the picture did not fit in the servo bay and the nylon gear was far too small for the gear teeth and it was hard to fix. I ended up super-gluing it and it managed. HobbyKing perhaps release a new version? Other than that I love it. And it is great value for money!Brilliant bit of kit. Got me started and in the air nicely. very please. servo mount is a bit rubbish. but works extreeeemly well for the price.Got one of these in the mail today... Very robust and well designed kit.
Decided to order another one to build for night flying with some led light strips.
Pretty easy to put together.. I used the KK2.1 control board and setting it up was a breeze..
I assigned the autolevel to my landing gear switch so I could easily switch back and forth for acrobatic modes.
I used plush 18 amp esc.. DT 700 kv bell motors and an orange spektrum compatible receiver with satellite Corna 929 metal gear 9 gram servo for the yaw.
10x4.5 slowfly props (2 CW and 1 CCW) and get an easy ten minutes with 2200 mah Turnigy batteries.
I give it a hearty two thumbs up.. (ps.. I didn't use the screws and bolts per directions
I simply drilled a pilot hole and tapped it for the screws on one side.
Built a battery tray with 1.5 glass plate cut 1.25 x 7" and suspended it from the bottom with wire ties.I have two rotorbits tricopters and they are excellent very tough. I would highly recommend them
great for general fun flying and they fly great with the KK2 and recommended motors. Thanks Hobbyling for a great bargain.Please do not overlook this frame kit !! I have built and crashed more multirotor kits then I care to admit to. This is the best kit I ever built. The first time that everything fit to a perfect match and ended up being one of the strongest one I have. Very Perice fitting of all components . May be a bit heavy . I love it !!!!Received my kit today. A bit disappointed as the carbon fiber rods that come with it don't have holes , so you have to either buy the jig set for it or drill the holes very carefull.
The kit is very neat and nice .It Seems to be strong enough to handle some crashes. But this I will find out soon.
Awesome kit. My first multirotor and I was impressed with its quality. My only gripe was the servo mechanism. The recommend led servos do not fit without alot of fiddling around. Otherwise im happy with it.
