Question
Thinking about building my own frame. What do I need to worry about? (pics inside)

Sooooo, I am tinkering with the idea of building my own frame for a hex, but since I am a total noob in the field, I need some advice.

The parts I am planning on using for a start is these (going to start out with a quad-build, and then later on move forward with the HEX project as i gather experience)
I am posting the list here again, and hoping for some inputs on the parts this time. Previous thread was never replieŽd to.

I have now startet designing a HEX frame for fun, and wanted to get some inputs.



Will it be a bad thing to have the motors/props lifted above the main frame like in this design?

Do the props HAVE to be in a circle, or can the software be tweaked, or will it not matter if they are a tad off (in this design, they are not perfectly in a circle, but the middle ones slightly pushed to the center)

Planning on cutting this from carbon fiber 2 mm sheets, and right now, it has a weight of about 500 grams. Hobe to reduce this though.

Inputs?
