3D Printed Custom Quad (Stylish Quadcopter)


I thought I would show where I was up to with this project.

This idea was more about looks then functionality and just to see if it could be done (you have to credit the FC's these days they can make anything fly)

Original thread:
http://diydrones.com/forum/topics/st...age=1#comments

I have made changes to the design to suite my motors and needs
This is using:
Turnigy Plush 25amp ESC
HK KK2.0
SF 8045 props
Turnigy Aerodrive SK3 - 2830-1130kv Brushless Outrunner Motors
Carbon Fiber Tube 3K 12mm Diameter for Quadcopter Multicopter

The prop guards are to heavy out on the arm and cause to much wobble I hope to try and find someone to cut them out of foam to see how that would go.

Proof it sorta flies (sorry about video quality):

Innovative design, pretty sure walkera or HK's stealing it as we speak.

That looks really slick!
I wonder if you'd gain much from tilting the duct supports to act as pre-swirl stator vanes?

Very Nice!

You could lighten the design by only having one landing support on each prop ring. The rings do not need to stand alone but, as a quad, tri or other multi. Keep it up..... :-)

Nice quad. Good chuckle on the VVS PSA as well.
