DJI Quadcopter Frame BUILD Thread

DJI Quadcopter Frame F450 "Flame Wheel"

250grams 450 size quad, simon says its good for 50-ish gram motors which hacker clones would be perfect

http://www.heliguy.com/Extras/Multic...dcopter-Frame/
also ( free with a dji flight contol system purchase)

few of us got lucky and got them for $45 bucks but the price went up due to some wholesale costs ( per Alex). but the things looks to be the best bang for buck for bashing around. not for AP etc..

the uniqueness about it is, the lower plate is the flight control mounting deck with a built in power distributor board and the top plate will hold your battery down with straps or Velcro if you like. but because i would rather put a top deck protecting the battery i am giving 4 of those top plates for free to the 4 of us who got i tfirst. ( just have to purchase your own standoffs and screws ) for couple bucks .

I REALLY LIKE THIS FRAME! mainly for simplicity and strength sake!

Check out the vid

Dji voliet test of F450 frame (1 min 19 sec)

Ok so after discovering i got Black/White it inspired me to customize the props and motors to match. so this will be my DJI Fram tribute.

since i also have vinyl cutters with my cnc routers at home i was able to draw up and cut some custom computer decals for my motors and props.

hope you guys like it, do you think i should make all motors black with white lettering or leave them to match the white arms? i like it but can go either way!.

yes $78 right now but the 4 of us were able to get great pricing from Alex at Heliguy.com for $45 each, warthox just bought the last one currently though.

hopefully you can update us here when you get them since i would rather buy them from you in the USA and i want atleast 1 or 2 more.

yea the frame is great value for learning to sport fly. i think the 250 grams with hacker clones will be fine for me i flew with other stuff heavier. but the simplicity of setting up a board on the frame is nice! i am planning on letting my 4 year old start on this frame,
