The TITAN- Hands down the toughest full-size tricopter frame ever!
Tired of breaking the bank every time you crash? Or maybe you’re just getting into the hobby and you need something sturdy to learn with… look no further. The TITAN was designed from scratch to take a beating. The average crash with a TITAN will only cost you a prop or two and a handful of cable-ties!
Why is the TITAN the toughest?
- All three booms can fold in a crash. The unique arm retainers keep all three booms securely in place while in flight- but pop loose in a crash to prevent damage. The TITAN is also the only tricopter with a free-folding tail boom; which can save it from breaking in a tail-in crash.
- Break-away components. The motor mounts, landing gear and yaw mechanism are all held in place by standard mini cable-ties. In a crash, the cable-ties break and save the components from damage. Replacing them is a quick and costs pennies!
- Carbon fiber booms (optional). 10mm square pultruded carbon fiber rod. You can also use these instructions to convert them to Wood/Carbon Hybrid booms which will make them nearly indestructible!
- Modular yaw mechanism. The yaw mechanism is an independent module that is also affixed by cable-ties, in a hard enough crash it will break free to prevent serious damage. (details)
- Engineering grade materials. The main components of the TITAN are made from 1/8” thick laser cut delrin- much stronger than injection molded plastics yet more flexible than aluminum or carbon fiber. Delrin is the go-to material for engineers who are serious about strength, durability and weight.
- The lower frame plate has screw holes that accept an optional vibration-isolated camera platform
- Arms fold back for compact storage and transport
- Specially designed “fingers” prevent the rubber arm retainers from being lost when they pop loose in a crash
- Two piece landing gear is extra stiff to prevent yaw oscillation on the ground
- An engraved outline for 50mm square flight controllers such as the KK2 or MultiWii helps you position the FC right on the center of gravity
- The electronics cover protects your electronics in the event of an inverted crash- and customizable colors improve the look of your rig!
- There is ample room between the frame plates for wiring, plus there are cable-tie slots to keep everything tidy
- All hardware is high quality 18-8 stainless steel, with the exception of the electronics cover standoffs which are lightweight aluminum
- 8" minimum, 11" maximum prop diameter recommended
The TITAN is tough, but not indestructible. That’s why a full range of replacement parts are available to get you flying again ASAP!

- 3 rubber arm retainers and 3 spares
- Electronics cover colors: 5 transparent acrylic color choices or black delrin. Delrin is much more impact resistant than acrylic.
- Vibration isolated camera mount: Just four screws allow you to make your crazy aerobatic flier into a stable camera platform!
- Small Camera Mount: perfect for mounting cameras like the GoPro Hero2, Hero3, Hero3+, Mobius Acton Cam, or our FPV Board Camera Mount.
- Large Camera Mount: (Only recommended for small point-and-shoot cameras when mounted on a tricopter frame, if you want to lift larger cameras you should consider the TITAN Y6 frame). Allows you to mount nearly any camera with a 1/4-20 mounting point. It features an offset FPV camera platform compatible with our FPV Board Camera Mount (sold separately) which allows you to perfectly line up your shots, and the extended length battery tray allows you to balance your copter no matter the payload.
