really like the idea of this frame, would suit me perfectly as my main transport is a motorcycle and ive been looking for a good folding frame for a while now.
Will you be selling these frames?
if so what sort of cost are we talking?
Cheers

Mark

@ AeroRoo, thanks! I'm trying to keep this as simple as possible to start since this is my first quad.

Also since I work at a Cedar warehouse it made sense to use Cedar

Hi!
related to the H-quad concept, I developed a simple GoPro tilt only gimbal to be mounted in these copters... and good for any frame like Flamewheel and TBS, I suppose.
This second prototipe is still warm from the CNCing , is made from expanded PVC and is very easy to assemble only with cyano, that works extremely well with this material with a great welding effect.
