Some pictures of the first cut.
Those don't show the real quality of the frame since i was making the "Setup" on the new CNC and that is the real first frame cut i made on it..
But i cut another one after and it is perfect.. ;)

First flight of the Dialfonzo MiniSpyder, it was dark and cloudy and I forgot to take the polorization off the camera. It is suppose to be nice and sunny the next couple of days so hope for much better video. For not having adjusted PIDs yet this thing was stable as could be, had just a few little jitters in stationary flight from PID not adjusted yet. It is a blast to fly and I am going to have a lot of fun with this. Anyone wanting a Mini Spyder consider this one. Quality of parts are excellent thanks Dialfonzo
Also notice the wind blowing the big tree on the left.
Mini Spyder first fligjht (3 min 57 sec)

That is nice and cool. Yes it look very stable and easy to fly.
Good match for motors-esc?

Thanks so much for the video.
It's nice to see the first flight of my model.

This frame looks excellent,would it be possible to use this with a gopro or similar camera or is the frame to small for that? and when will you be selling these?.

Thanks

Paul

Hi Paul,

Thanks for the good word.

DiaLFonZo-Copter is not a big compagny that produce big batch of frames.
It's me and my house that cut in my basement.

I don't cut frames to have stock since i have too many models etc..
So i cut on demand mostly

It's easier for me like that too since this is not my day job and i need to find time to cut between work, family and kids.. lol

Took off the Crius SE FC and put on a Quadrino FC. This little Dialfonzo Mini Spyder flies great and is great for indoor flying although I can't wait to get it out side with this FC on it.

Fortunately only lost a propeller, no other damage to this tough bird.
