From Robot Dreams:

"The Shrediquette DLXm is an amazingly clean and efficent tricopter design weighing a scant 628 grams yet capable of carrying a payload of up to 550 grams in
sustained flights lasting as long as 18 minutes. It has a lift to weight
ratio of 2.87:1 and incorporates features that make it an absolute
pleasure to operate and experience (at least from the video since we
haven't had the opportunity to fly it in person, yet…).

The tricopter designer, W. Thielicke, is a PhD student and research assistant at the University of Applied Sciences, Bremen, Germany. He's generously posted the latest versions of
the project publically on his blog including the instructions and
manual, source code, PCB layout (Eagle format), configuration tool
(GUI), and PC -> PWM converters."

This tricopter looks awesome... look at the other videos he posted... great idea using Matlab to show the attitude of the copter in real time based on telemetry data

Hi, this is William, the designer of this tricopter. Thanks for blogging :-D . The information is not 100% correct, as the video shows the performance of my palm-sized micro-tricopter. Here are the specs for the DLXm version:
Name: Shrediquette DLXm
Motor shaft distance: 132 mm
Max. dimension: 259 mm
Props: 5x3 3-blade GWS
Payload: ~100g
Endurance: 11 minutes
Weight: 230g
Lift-to-weight ratio: 3.1:1

This is a more recent video of the DLXm during FPV flight:

The miniaturization of the original is very nice!
