Update on the ELV BMA020 bob!

According to the ELV shop the item will be back in stock in 1 week.



I already ordered a batch of 70pcs and am waiting on a confirmation for the shipping.

Sorry but I can't take pre-orders on items I don't have.
I made this mistake once when I was pretty sure I'll get them. The lady from ELV stated to have a "huge amount" available. All of a sudden they were sold out - leaving me and almost 50 buyers in the rain ... we had to wait a month - and I don't want to make the same mistake again. The ELV shop system is crap!
Can you believe there's no order history?

The items I ordered weeks ago don't appear in my profile, so - though I got an order confirmation - I can't be sure about it.

So let's wait and see. Due the demand is still high I'll order another 30pcs to make it 100 - hopefully everyone's needs will be covered!

I note that the mainSQRE section differs pretty significantly from the dxf in the jpkh arducopter branch. Do you have any pictures of your version assembled?

It is not mine version, it is official "new and improved" version of the main section posted by Chris Anderson, ArduCopter owner. I don't have any version, old or new, so no pictures for you. I like this design very much, but I think prices of these parts in ArduCopter shop are ridiculously high, and if we can find someone with access to laser cutter, and with optimal material usage like it is on my drawings, we can probably get those parts made of polycarbonate for 1/4 or 1/3 of the price. It all depends how expensive is laser cutter usage for making custom parts, it is probably much cheaper in some parts of the world than in the other. We just have to find some shop to do it cheaply for us.

Edit: Chris Anderson made a comment about this on DIY Drones, correctly stating that acrylic used on Ponoko is much more brittle than polycarbonate used by ArduCopter shop. We have to make it of polycarbonate, also known under commercial name Lexan.

I can't recommend those acrylic parts - they break easily...

Why not take black G10? Looks better and is tougher than the original material.

I count on your organizing skills to find someone to laser-cut them out of black G10 I'll adopt the drawings to actual G10 sheet size that cutter can easily purchase, we just have to find the shop with laser-cutter somewhere in Europe.
