Custom quad designs (Nela's mini Outback Quad)

Well finally I have a quad designed by Dialfonzo & Me and cut by luis from My Rc build..http://www.myrcbuild.com/

First how in the world do you go about designing one well im not much of a designer but i had a rough idea, I saw a bunch of quads that I liked and wanted something that could be sporty small and fun and could handle some crashes.

I emailed Dialfonzo and it took off within a couple of days he came out with some designs wow he did some super designs If you ever have a chance check out his stuff really cool designs some of the best Ive seen so far and the price well not overpriced at all. http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/member.php?u=176689

after 2 weeks we were able to get it to a point where I really wanted it to look like and then He sent the design to Luis for cutting and out came the design in real life. Both of these gentlemen are fantastic to deal with pretty impressed with how fast they respond to email even im buggin them
Great job guys keep up the good work

Check out Dialfonzo's new frame, same size as mine..

Pointers for the designs

I wanted it look nice offcourse everybody wants their quad to look snazzy well rounded robust and simple.
I find most of the designs are a complicated with lots of stuff to takeoff before you get to the board or even arm replacement,motor replacement etc..


Why is this special no its not its just a good simple design. Dialfonzo designed it in a way if it were to crash and you broke the arm its fairly easy take 4 screws out and waalaaa replace the arm and you are all set for some more flying..

The arms are reversable like some motors like park 300 where the shaft comes out the other end of the bell just reverse the arms and waaalaaa you are all set

motors are well protected inside the arm so if you run into a wall hmmm maybe if you runinto something and hit the arm first theory wise they should survive ..

so there it is pretty staight forward to put together and robust for playing around in your backyard..

SETUP
Frame weight 209grms 7.37ounces

flight video may follow

Nela's mini outback quad (4 min 34 sec)


Update1after logging more than 30hours of flight time i just want to say this thing is solid I received the aluminum standoffs and wow does that feel solid now or what .

I had issues on mounting my keychain camera on my other quads but I was able to mount it on this and wow was a huge difference I could actually see a video

This has been all that i wanted and man is this fun perfect for backyard or lunch break practice.

Ok I finally got myself a 32bit board from Abusemark and its great fit for the outback quad..Its the NAZE 32 ,

quick note this board requires some computer skills

heres the info..

well done very nice look cool as well from the design point of view.

but you might find that its to strong due to the fat arms might be a Little on the heavier side for its size.

but if your not planning on lifting your house then strong means crash away lol


nice one
