Wooden FPV W/DJI F330 arms


I wanted to make this frame for the dji330 arms because I like the smaller agile quads for fun flying fpv and wanted something I could make cheap. I did a complete design from memory but it came out very close to the ov3rquad design. I guess I just really liked the look so I kept as close to it as possible but it will most likely be redesigned more than once in the future.
I just wanted to get a thread started that I could get input from some of you on what could make this design better.
enough of the BS here are some pics to get it started

Do you know how much those arms weight?

6mm ply would be really heavy. You could try 3mm and may need some spacers on the sides for rigidity. It would be lighter

The entire frame as is(4 x dji330 arms, screws and plates) weights in at 185grams
it is pretty strong not much flex but if you were to put a small piece half way up each side it would make the frame very solid.

I have no frame stiffeners(if that's what you call it) in my larger 570mm frame using the 450 arms and it uses the same 1/4 birch plywood. I get no flex when I fly it but I am flying it with a naza and gps so it is pretty tame not like my cc3d boards.

sure here you go.


What are your plans? wood or composite? I am interested in finding someone to cut me a frame from G10, carbon fiber or something similar if you have the ability send me a PM

do you have a cnc? I would like this frame cut in the same material if you could do one for me and I can pay you for it.
