I have been studying about building a tricopter. But I couldn't find the design calculations or mathematical modeling of the tricopter any where over the internet.

What are the mathematical relationships or equations of motion and forces in tricopter? How do I calculate the requirements of the structural design and the energy requirements of the motors?

I found the following paper, Model Predictive Control of a Tricopter (Barsk, J. 2012) quite helpful.

  • $\begingroup$ thanks very much but i already found that and reading but it isn't really meeting my needs .I didn't mean to spam the web i just thought i could get more help $\endgroup$ – sarath Aug 16 '13 at 16:21
  • $\begingroup$ What i truly need is mathematical relationships or equations of motion and forces in tricopter along with structural design calculations and energy calculations of motots .sounds crazy right ? $\endgroup$ – sarath Aug 17 '13 at 3:11

I too posted the same question here..:) To calculater the output power required check this link: http://www.wired.com/2014/05/modeling-the-thrust-from-a-quadcopter/

The same power can be applied to tricopter also..
