It is made of 1/4" black G10 material that is milled in the center to leave about 2.5mm on the bottom.

350mm motor to motor and it has 45mm to 30.5mm slot for FC.
Slot on the bottom for battery strap.

S-uper

Looks Great Eric!

Few questions, what's the weight(bare frame) How stiff are the arms once milled? any twist or flex? How much$$

Sorry John, i don't have it on hand to weight it ..
I sent him for a test.

The arms do have a bit of twist but at the moment i don't know if it's too much.

And for the price.. i have to review a bit what it cost me.. lol

I cut one Arm in Aluminum but i need some better setup on the CNC to do it good.

Should take about an hour or two.
But I will weight it all and get back to you.

Sweet!
It is interesting what threads pop up while I am napping .
@ DA what are you throwing on it?
@shultz If there is any twist, that should not be not hard to fix. There it twist in the Xaircraft / DJI style arms and people still use them. Eric could mill a little less out. Witespy's Flip has nothing milled out. If Eric makes it, it will be good and Tough!

yeah the flex, twist and vibration can be overcome, I fly a DJI F330, LPF and creative FC mounting has it flying very well

Still, it would be nice if the arms are rigid enough to reduce vibration, flex and twist.

I've been looking at the new Flip, It looks tough as nails and is not to heavy. Still, If Eric's design is lighter and nearly as tuff he'll have a winner once again!

Looking forward to seeing some more specs and Video.

There is some twist but this is not the Witespy flip.
This is a Super Simple Quad!

i wonder if it is really necessary to have the "wall" around... all i can think of is adding weights and decrease aerodynamics

Makes the arm stiffer, milling out the arm reduces weight more than enough to make up for the "wall . As for aerodynamics..... it's a quad! aerodynamics are basically tossed out the window from the start

will be interesting to see if there is any deflection under load and stress concentration at the screw holes..... but just opinion.. could be wrong

(not messing up.. just my instinct tells me those spots are mostly likely break at high load/acro flight)

I wondered about the how the arm tapers in when it gets closer to the centre plate. Then I stopped caring and will wait for DA to put a 4s on it. It should be fine.
