3/8" aluminum c channel arms ( open side up, no need to drill out for the motors and cables fit inside ) 10" long sandwiched between 1/8 birch plywood. Front arms are at 120 degrees apart and rear are at 90 degrees. MTM is between 17 and 19 inches so it's still real close to a traditional quad. 808 #16v2 with 120 lens up in front doesn't see much, if any props on its perch. Finished with a touch of spray paint, to give it some polish. Nice enough my wife though I bought the frame.

This is build number 4 in 3 weeks. Last one was good, but had this nasty habit of losing its mind and doing 360 flips into the ground so it had to be rebuilt and I was hankering for cleaning up my build. I have some cf plate and 10mm squares on order so maybe the next build will be a little less weight.
