The frame is my own design... Isn't that the purpose with the scratchbuilt forum?

Well... I don't think I will share the plans, at least not right now. I have several reasons:

- It is a commercial product... I'm trying to sell a few frames to get something for all the time I spent designing it.

- It is not quite perfect yet... I will make a few adjustments on this one, then move on to the next design (v2.0). When that one is complete, I will probably share the first one.

- It's far from DIY friendly, since it requires several custom made aluminium parts with pretty tight tolerances.

I'm afraid the price is not very reasonable... I make these mainly to sell complete RTF machines for photopraphers. A finished RTF with WKM, gimbal etc. costs around $6000. I might make a few frames to sell, just waiting for the final price of a few components, but the price of the frame only will probably be around $600.

Very clean design folded and un-folded.

I guess after R&D you will have to come up with a clever name for the frame.

What, Y6 Pro isn't clever enough?

I will soon show you two new frames, the updated version of this frame, and it's baby brother (right now called the Y6 Light ). The small one is also very nice, built for MT2212-750 motors and 10x4.7 props, with integrated gimbal for Gopro.

Nice clean tight design.

Like the fact your running the ESC's in the prop wash to keep them cool. 99% of multi's I see out there lack that simple design feature.
