Swift Hex 300mm 3D Printed Hex Frame


Introducing the Swift Hex, a mini sized hexacopter that I designed and 3D printed, specifically for FPV. Its design was inspired by the Blackout Spider Hex, but seeing as it is currently unavailable, I decided to designed and make my own.

It is exactly 300mm motor to motor. It uses 37mm spacers, just because that is what I had lying around. I decided to use cheap ZMR 1806 motors, along with 5 x 3 props. It has a built-in vibration dampening system with earplug for the top-mounted Mobius Action Cam. 10amp SimonK ESCs and a Naze32 equivalent, the Flip32+ from Witespy power the system.

Rippin' it Up - Swift Hex (3 min 53 sec)

Very cool! Question...you said it has earplugs for anti-vibration system. You actually use earplugs? If so, great idea and would like to use them for my rig. If not, me not so smart lol.
Thanks

I did use earplugs with great results. No jello on the Mobius.

I've switched to those black vibration dampening balls now, had them lying around.
