So here is my contribution to this thread. My Spiral Hex. It measures 19-1/4 inches (488 mm) from center motors. This is my second build and I built this from concept on up. I wanted to make everything on this one. All the carbon fiber on this was made by me from 2x2 twill fabric. I even make my own vacuum system so I can make the plates and formed parts. The build log is here: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2299175.

I still need to outfit it with some LED's but the hard part is done! I have over 80 hours into everything here and am pretty happy with how it tuned out.

Parts:
FC: Multiwii and Megapirate AIO Flight Controller w/FTDI (ATmega 2560) V2.0

Motors: Multistar 350QX Blade Motor set 2209 1200KV

Looking forward to it. A guy named Gordo did one last year. But of course was only a quad in disguise.
