My first diy quadcopter

hi,

this is my first diy quadcopter, 600g in total without battery, size 400. Look ma, no visible of esc, with the arrangement of arm like this, I have enough space to put hobbywing 4 in 1 esc inside the frame layer.
i know the landing gear is not look good, but it would provide good spring mechanism on hard landing.
waiting for new props to test it out

Goodonya, mate! Looks well done. I'm still contemplating this design.

Is there a special reason why the washers are between the frame plates and the arms?

Don't fuss about the looks of the landing gear - if it works, and is light weight, it's cool. That is, if it doesn't make the whole thing look like a swastika.

Nice motor mounts - did you make those yourself? What's the dimensions of the square alu booms? Oh, and weight of the frame - do you know?

the washers will help to ease the vibration from motor arm and also keep bolt not to be loosed.

i fail to cut carbon plate, it is too hard for me, so I took part from this frame:

the frame only about 150g

I am glad to see what you have done.
I have also used this shape. Align T-rex 700 landing gear is very strong.
I have given this quad to my son, he enjoys it very much.
