The Lynxmotion Hunter VTail 400 Drone (T-Motor Combo Kit) is a high performance quadcopter. Unlike other 'x' (where the front of the UAV is facing between two legs) or '+' (where the front is facing one of the legs) quadcopters and Y-shaped tricopters, the VTail concept uses two angled rear propellers, merging both concepts.

Many tricopter designs use a servo to angle the rear propeller to Yaw (rotate horizontally) the aircraft clockwise / counter-clockwise, and have an issue with asymmetry (only two propellers can counter-rotate while the third causes a bit of rotation). A 6-rotor tricopter solves the symmetry issue, but is more expensive as it requires three additional motors and ESCs.

The Mechanics
The frame uses G10 fiberglass composite which is incredibly rigid and lightweight and offers significant price advantages over carbon fibre. The hardware is entirely metal, using lightweight aluminium standoffs, steel screws and lock nuts.

Electronics
The VTail design requires a controller which has is VTail compatible. The controller's function is to stabilize the aircraft using onboard sensors (usually a multi-axis gyroscope and/or accelerometer). In addition to the main controller, each motor needs an electronic speed controller (ECS) ideally designed for the very fast response time needed by performance multi-rotor aircraft.

Note: Optional VTail 400 Canopy and VTail 400 Sticker Kit sold as separate accessories.
