That looks sweet. Wish that had been out before I built my microquad, but oh well. I don't need another one now.

Its much like most micro sized frames. FC on top, Rx above that or on arm, Battery underneath.

Thats a heavy frame for the size. The PCB power distro in the center is a great idea. All that weight in the arms only to solder the motors wires 1/8" from the ESC? It would be better to solder the motor wires direct so now no need for the PCB arms.

It does seem a little heavy Tony. But that is what a little bigger motor and 3s is for.

It doesn't actually say what the weight of the frame is by itself, though. It states an estimated weight for the entire setup with motors and escs. I can't imagine it's that heavy, though probably heavier than the BlueSkyRC funsized frame, since it has legs.

Well my BlueSkyRC frame with everything but the lipo is 188g so 145g for this less Rx seems within range.

And I don't think the entire arm is copper clad, just the 3 tab strips on the end of each or so it looks from the pics.

Im sorry I had it wrong. I seen 145g and thought that was just for the frame alone. It looks like the flying weight is 145g if you use the stuff suggested minus batt,RX. The price is right thats for sure.

I don't mind the design, everything seems well protected. Not sure about ESC airflow.

On my other micros I have the ESCs all wedge into the central frame and not had any heat issues. Not as if your drawing a large amount from them. I usually run 10A ESCs on these micros.

What sort of glue would you use to assemble it?
