Tricopter Design Workshop

Option 1: Organize this workshop in your college/school

Our expert trainers will visit your institute. ₹ 1900 per participant

Course Introduction

Tricopters very nearly achieve the mechanical complexity seen in present day helicopters. A Tricopter uses unique servomechanism to maneuver with only three odd rotors. It enjoys immense craze among aviation enthusiasts, because of its exceptional efficiency and emerging applicability!

Starting from the very basics, the Tricopter workshop provides students with hands-on experience in aeromodelling a radio-controlled Tricopter. The instructions given in the workshop are projected to encourage innovative working knowledge of modern aviation systems – the best engineering lesson yet!

Course Highlights

  • Design, Fabrication and Testing of a Tricopter from scratch
  • Introduction to aeronautical basics on Multi Rotor Vehicles
  • Introduction to design algorithm of a Tricopter
  • Understanding the Electronics circuitry involved in Tricopter


A radio-controlled electric rotary-wing tricopter configured with all major components required to design a working drone or unmanned aerial vehicle

Course Structure

  • Introduction to Multicopters - 4 hrs
  • Interactive design calculation session - 1 hrs
  • Fabrication sessions - 6 hrs
  • Calibration and Testing of the developed Tricopter - 4 hrs

Topics Covered
