Hello, i recently wanted to make a tricopter, from what i read making a tricopters frame isnt very easy, so i found this. i think its very good price, so why not? i have 2 motor's and ESC's laying around, so i kinda want to give them a use. But i need some help with what parts i need, can i use those motros with the frame, and what battery should i use (i have this), and everything in general, cause i have never made a tricopter.

That's not a frame, it's two plates that aid you in building your own frame.

There's a bunch of math to maximize and balance, flight time, stabilizability and power (punchyness) of your multirotor. This knowledge applies to all multirotor. You will need to learn about the best and most efficient prop and motor combinations, best bet to follow someone else lead. You will have to learn how to flash your own simonk firmware ESC's or buy them. You will need to figure out which flight controller you wish to use, which firmware you will run on it, and you will have to learn how to configure and finely tune the gains and settings of that controller you pick out. This may take hours and hours of watching videos and lots of trial and error if you do not know what you are doing. It is best to already have a strong back ground in RC aircraft, either planes or helis and advanced knowledge of all the equipment used for that before you go plugging it into a computerized flight controller that needs additional programming and tuning. Do you know if you want to fly an acrobatic tricopter or a video oriented FPV tricopter?, this will drastically change your decisions on everything I just mentioned above.

Your 9x will work fine for the job..

I don't know if you can use a kk board, but based on your questions thus far, I would guess no, you need to do some reading and video watching 1st.

and NO, you may certainly not use those motors for any multirotor purpose because the kv rating is much to high..

Those ESC's you linked are also a very poor choice..

These parts you have to neede for the building of the Tricopter.Pro Tricopter Delrin Kit,NX-4008 Motors,18A ESC ,CCW 10x4.7 APC Props, CW 10x4.7 Pusher APC Props ,GoPro Vibration Pad,KK Board ,Tricopter Power Distribution Board,Hitec Servo,10mm Poplar Wood Booms (not painted). We suggest 17" long wood,Wiring, Zip Ties, XT-60 Pigtail, Motor Mounting Hardware, etc.

Regards.
