While not autonomous, the amazing stability in the video's belie the relatively simple (& cheap) build. Strangely some of the components required are out of stock at HobbyKing.com... :)

The build is very well detailed here:

Pretty good work and interesting idea( Infact this tempted me to try to give some life to my Trex500 clone!! ).

These thing are amazing!!!
This is a tricopter build after the singguy-style, http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1142429
I have build a lot and experimented with them the last months. And they are STABLE, and very easy to build.

Here is some of my examples of use:

Ok , no probs, I was able to see the second and third one better. Beautiful park with very nice schulptures for a stroll :). what place is it? Yep snow boarding was fun too :).
More important , do you have any build blog or site that we can try to build similar one? The mainden flight was pretty good and is tempting me to build one ;)).thanks for sharing.
