- Create your own custom VTail 500 quadcopter
- Requires: electronics, motors, propellers, battery
The Lynxmotion Hunter VTail 500 Drone Kit (Hardware Only) is a high performance quadcopter. Unlike other 'x' (where the front of the UAV is facing between two legs) or '+' (where the front is facing one of the legs) quadcopters and Y-shaped tricopters, the VTail concept uses two angled rear propellers, merging both concepts.
Many tricopter designs use a servo to angle the rear propeller to rotate the aircraft clockwise / counter-clockwise, and have an issue with asymmetry (only two propellers can counter-rotate while the third causes a bit of rotation). A 6-rotor tricopter solves the symmetry issue, but is more expensive as it requires three additional motors and ESCs.
The frame uses G10 fiberglass composite which is incredibly rigid and lightweight and offers significant price advantages over carbon fibre. The hardware is entirely metal, using lightweight aluminium standoffs, steel screws and lock nuts.
The VTail 500 is larger than the VTail 400. The "400" refers to the diameter of the circle which passes through all four motors and is commonly used as a size reference for multi-rotor UAVs.
Note: Optional VTail 500 White Canopy sold as a separate accessory.
