Project Alpha-UAV

Ok so this is my first attempt at drawing up a Spyder Quad. I wanted something versatile and modular enough to make it easy to fix when I inevitably auger in. Also from working with some other designs in previous copters I felt like it was prudent to make access to the electronics onboard fairly simple. I designed plates that will cover and hopefully protect the gear carried in the belly of this beast. It should workout to around a 500 class spyder if the measurements correct. This is still a work in progress and lines may change as I sit and look at this thing some more contemplating exactly where each piece of gear will be placed on the airframe. I am planning to use 5/8in Aluminum arms since that thickness seems to be substantially sturdy yet still light weight. Any ideas or thoughts as this progresses would be greatly appreciated.

v2

OK so a little more work on the airframe I have tried to make sure that my MWC Pro v2 will fit inside. The hatches will have stand offs to provide a little more height, yet still provide protection. The small hatch will cover a Spektrum receiver while the larger will protect the MWC. I will try to run the file through solid works tomorrow and calculate the actual weight of the panels. It looks like I have the airframe down to 350mm Rotor to Rotor. The arm mounts are spaced for 5/8 square aluminum tube arms.
