Card Board Frame

Hi all,
here my newest Idea.
There are outthere so many Frames, made from so many Materials. Last Week I visit the Kindergarten of my Daughter. I Helped out as Cook for one Day.
Then I wonder , they Play with Left Over Cardboard Material. So .......... Why not make a Cardboard Frame.
So I take some Left Over Material to Home and make a try.



Now I am sitting here and make some Sketch. I hope in two Weeks I will have the first CARDBOARD Multicopter Frame ready.

If there are a Set for sale ready, I will send to Testers.
You only have to build then on your Motors, Escs and Fc .

Step by Step.......

Hi all, Weekend are Family Days. So go on next Week.

- n3m1s1s, will you dive with it ?

- vic20owner 3D ? For sure , if you can Fly 3D.

Price Is not ready yet. Waht do you think is a good price ? you want to buy a Cardboard frame ? It will be with Two Motor Arms + 8 universal Plywood Motor Mounts , they will clamp up and down at the end of all Motorarms . Two Universal Plywood Centerplates 127mm Diameter - incl. all Screws / Nuts.
Motor Mounts have to drilled by your self , to your Motor dimension Diameter. Motor Mount Plates will be 40mm.
Also Later there is an Option for Printing and already laminated nice Banner, Pics, Your Name or Company Name as advertising , on the 4 Side of the Frame. Later.

First Frame is a 450mm M-M . A 600mm is in Work. Also a Hex and Octo.

NO BUT I DO FLY IN THE RAIN QUITE A LOT

UK's 1st Drone Zone Multi Rotor Gathering part 1 wind n rain flights N3M1S1S (20 min 2 sec)


in the above video it rained most of the day and we all flew in the rain now last time i looked at a cardboard box that had been out in the rain it didnt look too good so imagine what happens if you are out over water and a motor dies? seen vids of that happening before, or your over a hundred meters up and four hundred meters away and it suddenly starts to rain? will it be strong enough WET to keep the motors in place and at the right angle so the flight controller doesn't freak out and crash? dont get me wrong cardboard quad is a great idea just untreated cardboard and water dont mix too well

so i will ask again

IS IT WATERPROOF? and if the answer is NO what do you plan to do to fix that?

Nothing now n3m1s1s ! Later I will offer a Latex Film, with option of print on Pics and Advertisement, that is when ordered already laminated on all 8 Survaces from the Motor Arms. All other see through Cardboard will be Latex Film coverd too.

But 100% Waterproof, NO. This not the thinking of my Idea.

The Idea was to make a Frame of recycling Material Paper.

But you can paint all it with epoxy Paint and make it Waterproof by your own, if you need.

Hi all Cardboard Frame Fans,

Today i decided me what is in a Set of a 450 Cardboard Frame.
Two 450mm Motor Frame Arms + 2 Center Plates 100mm + 8 Motor Mount Plates 50mm. No Screws - No Glue.

All Frame Set is for the Rc Modell Making DIY Builder. This will say ,You have to build it ready --->
There are out so many different Motors , with many different mounting hole Diameters , that I will not pre drill holes in the 8 Motormount screws.
Idea is to use long Motormount Screws through the CardBoard from the under Plate to the upper Plate in the Motor mounting Holes. This is the best methode to fix the Motors to the Cardboard. A little Wood Glue on each Plate will help too.
The Rest is easy.
When Stick both Motorarms together , one 100mm Plate on top and one under, both fix and tighten, with 4 Screws 45mm long , togehter. Drill your Holes to your Wishes and Ideas. There are more than one.
My is ......... 4 Holes are drilled right in the middle axis of the Cardboard Arms on both of the Centerplates.
If not use it as a Quadro to taken apart, you can Glue the both Centerplates direct on the Cardbordframe.

Put togehter your Electronic and fly.
ONE SET 450 mm CARDBOARD FRAME


Price is Not exacly ready yet. What Price is ok , do you think ???

Make an offer please.

Mike

Just spray some varnish on the cardboard and it will be waterproof.
