yes

I can do black, orange, blue, green, red, white, yellow and very dark purple(almost black)... for now

quad parts can be any combination of colors above, I paint with pigments so that the paint is not only on the surface, all layers are painted

topside wall of the motor holder is thick enough to directly put a screw for wood (or some similar rough thread screw)
motores should have an X mount, motor holders are 45mm in diameter

dexx great work.... email sent, subscribed.

Love to see

1) enough space for full load of mikrokopter boards
2) separate compartment on the bottom for the battery (so I don't have to expose the top components to dusty environments.. once sealed up I can forget about it!
3) integrated fixed go pro mount (for camera WITHOUT the case because it will be protected by the fiberglass) this would be integrated with the battery area. you can leave it to the user to hot glue on a spare lens cover for the gopro easily purchased anywhere.

thanks, e-mail answered


There is room for mikrokopter boards

separate compartment on the bottom.... working on it, and I'll try to integrate GoPro Mount...

I'll try to merge bottom compartment with landing gear, but .... I would need a little help from all of you.....

Since this bottom additional part is mostly for FPV, I would like to make something universal with enough space

Most important to me is size of batteries you use.... ? a little help please


tnx,
Denis

hey dex, usually if you are lifting anything most of us use a 4S pack.

I use anywhere from 4s2200 to 4s4000 packs. I do have 4xs 5300 packs too so I would say that is the max for me. Anything more than that and you are lifting too much battery IMHO

I would really love to see just a square section that straps to the bottom of your quad. 7" square should do. This sqaure section would have an angled part on the front. In this angled part you would have a hole for the go pro to see through. behind that and indside the frame is where you would put a sorbothane pad, on top the pad goes the go-pro and a simple velcro strap over the go pro to hold it in place.

the bottom of this square would be flat such that you can just land on its belly.

the reason I want it square is so that you can move the battery back to compensate for the go pro weight up front....

Steve... just some thoughts..

ok we all hate to ask this, but it happens to everyone...

What is the crash survivability of the frame? Does it offer enough protection for the controller boards?

Batteries: I use 3s-5000 or 4s-3300-4000.

Extended arms?

Dex,

Is it possible to slightly extend the arms? So that one could fit 1245 propellers?
BTW, very nice work. Having personally lost a hex at sea (pilot error) and because we have lots of lakes in Canada, this is something I am very interested in. I just placed an order for 2 of them on your site....

Thanks,
Frederic

just a square?

basically your advice is accepted thx., just the section will follow contours of the body....

pod is very strong, there is more than enough protection for the board ....

model is made with a weakened one link, tubes are the weakest, cheapest and the easiest to change
so that survival is good, and when it breaks repairs are cheap and fast, just change the tube in a few minutes

yes, shaft to shaft diameter can be from 46cm to 110cm
it just depends on the length of the tube...







I hope I answered all of the private messages... if not, remind me

Questions and orders..: dex@dexmodels.com ....here I answer a lot faster




and just to mention, I'm looking for dealers or group buyers
if you order 10 models in the package, you get 20% off
