What do you think of an Aluminum center hub design YES / NO

Pro's / Con's
Have not been able to find a heavy lift Octo hub that i like and seams price is way too high for them.
I was thinking of making one on a mill.
Want to know what you guys think.
What should i set as a weight limit.
What diameter 6 inch seams small so i thought 7 or 8 inch ?????
Anything i should try to do like leave a center in it to mount hardware too, cut some mounting slots. Maybe drill some holes.
Start with a thicker chunk of material so i can bore hole's all around the outside for mounting booms.
Have no idea what it is going to cost to make.
Do you think anyone would be interested in them if i made them.
Let me know if i am just waisting time or if it is a good idea.

I found 3 new different type's of material.
They were very light and very strong.
I will find out more about them this week.
It is a Injection molding shop and a CNC shop.
These were sugested materials to use.
I am excited.
