Custom frame designed for NanoWii

This will not be my first frame that I build but this is the first build where I remembered to take pictures of all the steps .

My goal is to build a frame especially for the NanoWii.

First thing to do.... spent a fair amount of money at different stores all over the globe.
The NanoWii and Carbon reinforced 9" props at, Germany.
Alu square rod (10x10mm) at an ebay store also located in Germany.
In the Netherlands I bought 2 sheets of epoxy, 1 sheet of 1,5mm thick and 1 sheet of 0,3mm.
Also in the Netherlands I bought a double sided epoxy print for the power harness.
The rest of the parts are ordered at Hobbyking but it may take awhile for them to arrive. More on that when I get the parts.

With powerdraw I sketched the drawings for the frame plates.

To make the frame look like the NanoWii, I used the same curve for the outline.
The powerdraw sketch was printed on an adhesive paper wich I sticked on the 1.5mm epoxy plate.

Took me about 2 1/2 hours from slapping on the sticker till the final product.

That's it for now, tomorrow i'll post the bottom plate and the frame arms.
