I am finally about finished with my Steampunk Tricopter. I have been working on this design since last December on and off. After crashing last fall I decided to completely rebuild as a steampunk airship. I looked extensively on line to get some ideas and to see what was out there but I couldn’t find anything that inspired me. Using my electronic components from my existing tricopter, I completely redesigned every part. I mean, the only parts I used from my old frame was the aluminum arms. Thats it… All the parts are either ABS plastic printed parts or balsa wood parts that were hand cut. Other than that I have tissue paper sails and one or two other materials just for looks. I have more images and details on a discussion thread at: http://diydrones.com/forum/topics/steampunk-tri-copter
Let me know what you think or ask some questions.
