VC-20-450 Quad Frame Thread


This frame spawned from a GAUI "upgrade" set I was cutting for the GAUI owners thread which included some thicker larger plates, but has evolved into a complete 450 sized (motor to motor) quad frame.

Discussion got a bit off topic for the thread, so I have created this thread to continue discussion without dragging the GAUI thread off topic.

I am open to cutting more of them if anyone wants one.
[edit:] updated 2011-04-11: Due to large number of emails and some confusion between usernames and real names I have now created a website for orders, thanks!

Whoops sorry I mean 2/9 lol

The gear doesn't retract, but it's adjustable for different heights.

landing gear


I have the blue version frame and love it. I am using the Gaui original tube legs and find they are always in the view of my inverted, belly mounted GoPro camera. My questions:

Will you sell the legs separately, and are they adjustable using different holes? What is the clearance under the frame that your legs provide?

Looks like you are using the original VC-20 frame. This frame does not have the holes drilled for multiple leg angles, so the new legs won't fit. Also, the spacers are a different size.

Have you tried moving the GAUI legs further out by drilling new holes? It looks like you may have... I see some extra holes there.
