Building x468 landing gear - Build Log

Here is a mini how-to showing the build of my new x468 landing gear I will be using on my Hoverfly quad. I will also use this set on my hexa since they easily are removed and added to other 468 plates. The cutting is a high quality and assembly is very easy. Instructions are located under each picture

That is one smart looking set of landing gear. I really like the cross bars (arrow shafts). The legs are farther apart than most landing gear I've seen. Should make for strong support. Nicely done.

I go to my local archery club and pick through the broken arrow shafts. They keep them for me and any that haven't split all the way I take home and cut. The best are the ones that use braided carbon. They usually only break at the tip and I can cut that away.

+1.. or where did you get that one? looks simple and fits the frame well. Good for still photo work for sure.

Hey Mike, seems like with your battery tray on the back, a camera mount like this:
http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/attac...mentid=3694815
would work well too if the spacing for the top booms was the same as your frame.

I just found that open source thread.. and I'm looking at that CAD file right now.. just wish I had a cnc machine
