Hybrid Droidworx Quad Part 4. lower mounting plate (Cont.)


Finished cleaning up the parts I had cut the other day for the LiPo mounts. Could not find my M4 tap anywhere so went ahead and final assembled the lower tray. 2 of the small rods were already tapped. I will have to do the others at work tomorrow during morning tea break.

I added split rubber strips to the area where the LiPo gets strapped in. I did this on the Octo. This stops the LiPo from slipping around and the holder from denting the pack.

I'm thinking I might make up 4 1mm thk Carbon Fibre doublers to strengthed up the LiPo mount made from 1.5mm G-10. I will use the mount as the landing gear for now until I tune it all up and work out the best prop/LiPo combination. The doublers will be held in place by the bolts holding the small rods which should make it a bit stiffer. I may even CA them as well.
