Tricopter Tilt Mount

Last weekend I continued the build of our tricopter with printing version one of the motor/servo tilt mount. As you may remember we have been putting our own spin on David’s tricopter build by 3D printing most of the parts.
rock solid even without the zip ties
Our new mount is a simplistic way to take out all of the guesswork on the alignment of the servo and tilt frame. It also incorporates a snap in solid hold on the servo itself.
Servo arm adapter plate
We also designed an adapter plate to increase the straighten of the servo arm to motor mount connection.
All mounted up
With contours that align to the servo arm and the tilt bracket the plate fits snug and is super strong.
Overall the mount has build in alignment, is rock solid, and can be build up with standard servo screws and zip ties that everyone has. It’s a win, win, win!!
I already have some plans to build in the lower section of the tilt directly into the print. Saving the need for one of the landing gear parts. But more to come on that later.
