The Tough Tilt has finally arrived! This injection molded Tricopter tilt mechanism is built to last! It comes with everything needed to mount the mechanism on a 1/2" boom and can be used with any brushless motors with 16-19mm motor mount spacings.

I find this system easy to assemble. I've used David's assembly which is great also but I prefer the Flite Test version. Carl Pelletier on 1st Dec 2016
Great piece of kit! Shipped to me in New Zealand with speed! Easy to assemble but centre your servo first! I live and learn!!! Daryl on 14th Nov 2016
This is a very nice product and quite a big one for tilt motor but if you want to go the extra mile say VTOL this is a very nice product and quiet a big one for tilt motor but if you want to go the extra mile save it all its nice because it's heavy sturdy strong but if you're not using it that way it's a little bit cumbersome for other smaller applications James Durr on 2nd Jun 2016
I have scratch built more than a dozen quad-copters over the last year and a half and I am eager to complete my first tri-copter. The Flite Test videos have been a tremendous resource and are what moved me to attempt a tri-copter build. So, I received my Tough Tilt Motor Mount a couple weeks ago and here are my first impressions... being made of injection molded plastic, I do believe it will be durable. The quality seems to be decent. Out of the box it was a little stiff in it's movement, so the very first thing I did was run a 1/8" drill bit through the holes on the top piece (the top piece needs to move freely without restriction or slop) and that seems to have "tweaked" it to a level of precision that is more acceptable to me. I will write more after completing my build and have some fly time under my belt. For now, I say "excellent product guys... I applaud your ingenuity and support of the hobby! ...bring the price down about a third." kevhef on 17th May 2016
Old gasser, put the tilt on replacing. Anolog servo put the stick to her and she jumped and cartwheeled into ground breakint the top of the new digital servo. Now ordering.new servo can anyone suggest a fix for the cartwheel 9186259161 Roy Roy on 14th May 2016
Old time gasser now into multiroters bought Titan, Bat bone vtail, and Simple copter vtail. Broke the mechanism off the Titan and just installed the FT tilt. Install worked great but had to use a screw from old servo to hold arm to unit. Gonna fly today... Roy on 12th May 2016
I had a hard time to get the proper fit for the servo horn. It would be nice to have all the harware to fit the servo properly!!! But it is a very good product, and the best tricopter tilt unit I had so far!!!

very nice and easy to assemble and can adapt with different setups. Unknown on 3rd Apr 2016
I have purchased 4 of these tough tilts. Once assembled properly I am very happy with the quality and function.
I had a tough time getting the servo horns attached. I followed the instructional video to cut and sand the horn but I had a tough time getting the screw hole predrilled.
The horn holes always seemed to either be to high or too low. There is a small margin for error in terms of getting the screw hole drilled without entering into the pivot region or coming out of the top of the tilt.
Trying to drill between the holes of the horn was difficult. Then cutting the servo screws to the right length was tough. I would have preferred to have a quality screw included in the kit that was the right length for the tilt. A pre-drilled hole would be handy as well.
I understand the desire to let the product have flexibility but I think I would have had a better experience if a screw was included with a mounting hole pre-drilled. Unknown on 15th Feb 2016
I have purchased three of Tough Tilt Motor Mounts, two of them were used in my Bi-Copter build and the third will be used on a Tricopter rebuild.
The Bi-Copter is progressing nicely as I work through the tuning process, I expect to have the same success with the Tough Tilt on the Tricopter rebuild. Ron Case on 16th Oct 2015
