Tricopter with a T

I am currently planning for a T-copter. A Tricopter in a T-layout. Why this? Well…I ordered a GoPro HD and this camera has 170ΒΊ angle of view. If I mount this on my current Tricopter or the Quadcopter I will always capture motors and propellers on the front arms. So I figured I could build …
