So I have three different versions/attempts at making my own H-quad the first attempt was a larger version of the one the guys at flitetest made, with arms bent outward from the body... But after making the arms I realized that the props would then be in the way of the video footage... So that was abondoned..
I then tried making it from 1/8 (6061) aluminum sheet metal which seemed to me WAY too heavy.. The empty frame was 1200gr!!
I have went to 1/16 (5052) aluminum sheet metal and it seems a lot more appropriate weight wise.. Motor to motor distance is 28 inches front to back and left to right, so it's a lot more symmetrical as well... Still waiting for my HK parts !!
