Custom Mini H Quad

Hi Everyone!

I have decided to build a little H Quad to fly low and fast and not worry about breaking anything. How can I not worry about breaking it? Because I am going to build it all from scratch using wood so that in the event of a terrible crash, I can just cut new arms and be back flying in a couple minutes.

To do this, I am going to keep the arms as simple as possible...just rectangular pieces of wood cut to length and holes drilled for motors.

I understand that it will be heavy, but who cares, it will still be fun and if all goes well, maybe I will make one out of carbon fiber too!

I have designed it to the best of my abilities on Sketchup and hopefully this weekend start cutting some wood.

Let me know if anyone has any suggestions, I have never built a frame so anything is useful, thanks!

First Parts Cut

I decided to cut the body plates tonight on my scroll saw and they came out pretty good!

I went with 1/8" plywood which is light and strong (relatively).

Next I need to cut and drill the inside parts and then order hardware.
Here are some pictures of it! I'm getting excited!
