Octa design will it work good?

Will this design work?
simply use 4 square pipes of aluminium and put 8motors?
and put a mounting plate in the center.
or is the geometry off?

it should work quite good, all you would have to watch is the materials weight, but no reason in the world it won't fly, work out the motor size and prop size, esc current and you should be in the air.

You might want to spread the booms apart a bit 'til the motors are equidistant, that way you won't be limiting your prop size as much.
