I can make some 1:1 A3/A4 PDFs so you just have to put stuff on the paper, saves a lot of time for the holes in the arms and the lipo holder.

@Cid156 : What are these two tall black "ears", is that for orientation ?
Yes but it is useless. I cannot see it properly... Now I am using a yellow ping pong ball in front of the model...

Oliver....what tools do you use to hand cut the carbon sheet? It looks machine-milled from here

Started on a scratch built H quad. Built from aluminum bars and acrylic sheets. Trying to decide if I should sandwich the aluminum with 2 layers of acrylic or try a single layer to start with. With 2 layers the weight is 680g, with a single layer it is 440g. Motors are going to be some turnigy multi star 4220 640kv, slinging 14" props. Name: uploadfromtaptalk1397780724215.jpg

Here is my latest scratchbuild. Used abs plastic to make the frame halves and 3/8 wooden arms.

Motors: Witespy red specials
ESC's; Witespy fire red 20a
MWC: Flip 1.5 running 2.3fw
RX: Lemon 6chnl

Flies quite well. As you can see it folds down nicely. Fits in my box next to my transmitter.

I just love the little ones, and with two cameras, it's even better.
Did you build that?

Very nice wood build.
I hope you don't crash it. Those arms will break.

I expect them to break... if I crash. Wait, when I crash. I've had others with these arms and its just nice and cheap to build and rebuild, that's why I used them.

I think my next one will be a pvc hex, if I can catch up with all the work that's still sitting on my work bench now.

Well every build should have a weak link to save the more expensive parts
I started with wood arms myself when I was learning, but got tired of replacing them, so I went with PVC. Now I still crash sometimes but only break a prop or two.

Hi this is my first "mini-hkład" project. It's mini h quad about 260mm motor to motor. Weight of this quad is around 100g. I waiting for parts from myrcmart. The first flight is planned for early May. Frame is very stiff and torsion, it's made from g10 epoxy plate. It looks wonderful. FC mounting holes are standard 45x45mm . On top-plate there place for anti-vibration dampers and plate for minidvr camera like mobius or 808#16v2. In the middle is a board camera fpv mount like sony 600tvl. On arms there are mounting holes for all available motors to this size of mini quads. Max of a diameter of the propeller is 6inch.

Very nice. I'm thinking it might be better to hang all that from the arms, by flipping it over and have all that stuff on the bottom.
