Hi All,

first of all English is not my language, so excuse me for all errors ...!

I have designed a new Quad - Tri copter frame.
In conjunction with Luis of www.myrcbuild.com.

The frame is designed and now shipped to me for first testing.

I will add informations later about the frame and hardware i will use.






--Hardware--
I will use a MultiWii based controller assembled on myrcgroups.com PCB
http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1406524
4 BlueWonder 1300km motors
4 8amp esc




The frame will be on www.myrcbuild.com to be buy after some test are made.

I post some Rendering and picture i have now, more to come:

Frame is drilled to use the MultiWii PCB flight board on sell at www.myrcbuild.com

And can accept many board. They mostly are 45mm spacing

All pictures Here:

I have also change the reveiver location on the board. It is now under the PCB.
It provide the right clearance to mount the pcb inside the frame rather then on top. more protected.

Nice design! The only comment I'd make is that using spacer posts (exclusively) to create the "girders" will add up to a lot of weight (if you use steel or aluminium) and may not yield sufficient torsional stiffness (against the twisting action of the motors) if you use nylon.

I'd recommend one or two "cross plates" in the same CF/G10/FR4 material within each arm section (and maybe some within the body, too) to guarantee absolute rigidity.

Yes i was worry about that. I will see when assembled.
It is not a big frame, so i think it will be good.

It is made out of 0.094in. Black G10 material. (at least this version)

I ordered both Nylon and Aluminum standoff to try.

The overall lenght form center to center of motors is +- 430mm.

0.094" is ~2.4mm in real money That's very thick/strong/heavy stuff. If you used cross-plates IMHO you'd easily be able to use 1.6mm G10 (standard PCB thickness) and still have the frame plenty strong/stiff enough.

Yes it may be a good idea.

We cut the first one with material we have on hand. Next version may be thiner and have thoses support.

First i will look at the stiffness of that one.

Maybe the 2.4mm version as a "crash-proof" beginners frame and the 1.6mm as a "sport" version

I will have the new v1.6 (Lighter) version today.
Will assemble and test.. and compare.



Added a camera mount in the front.
It's something i have design very quickly to have something on that version.

Would like to have inputs on that one ... what people would like to have.

That version have 2 option. Front mounting plate or 2 sides.
You can mount a servo horn when using it on side.

Front Mount:


Side Mount:


If you look close you will se a low profile landing too. Not suitable for Y setup.
