Wasp Pat's Mini Hex


The Wasp Pat's Mini Spider Hex

Following the Minion i wanted to make a hex that was simple to build and with minimal numbers of parts, i wanted it to swing 6" propellers and be big enough to carry any electronic used on the 450~500 size quads also it needed to be light and durable.

Its wasn't design to carry a GoPro just a Mobius although there are holes on the top plate for a damper plate for Mobius and GoPro.

- 1x 1 mm 3K twill CF top plate
- 1x 2 mm 3K Twill CF bottom plate
- 6x 2.5 mm 3K Twill CF arms
- 1x 1.5mm 3K Twill CF camera mount

- 8x 35 mm black nylon standoff
- 16x M3x 8mm SS bolts
- 8x M3x 8mm black nylon bolts
- 18x M3x10 mm SS bolts
- 18x M3 SS lock nuts

Loading up my Wasp Hex


I finally found time to install my MinimOSD/kvOSD and the uBlox GPS on my Wasp Hex... Now I can set PID's using sticks and the OSD and the GPS shows me which direction is home when I'm out exploring.


Battery voltage is showing up in my OSD but I still need to figure out why RSSi isn't picking up anything... always something, isn't it?

Thanks guys. Not so clean yet - I have a birds nest of wires in there to clean up when I'm finished... spent most of the day today experimenting with things.
It's a good thing there's lots of space between those plates.
