After building a Tricopter i kinda got hooked and now i'm building myself a new quad.
The idea started when i was looking and learning about multirotors and thought; that i could do better.
Not by design but as i learned as newb. that weight is key for most efficientcy.
So to be sort; enjoy.
- Center Plate CF center-plate out of 1.5mm thick laminated sheet.
- Motor Mounts CF motor mounts out of 1mm thick laminated sheet.
- Arms HK-250 Tailboom.
- Tailboom Clamps HK-250 Tail-fin band.
- Motors Hacker 20-50S.
- ESC's Turnigy Plush 12amp.
- Elektronics Protection 100mm Christmas Ornament.
- RX FrSky 8channel telemetry.
- Battery Turnigy Nano 2200 3S1P.
- Flightcontroller OP Copter Control.
- Wires 20AWG thicknes.
- Props 8x4.5'' El Cheapo.
Weight calculation of this all.

517,2 gram take-off weight.
Update; It actualy turned out that i wasn't that far beside.
AUW with 2200 bat. = 509gram.
Also added the template's. Have a look maybe you like it.
I've made it simple, so everyone can make the pieces, out of CF or GFK or anything you like, by hand.
You can use and download google skechup for free. Open and download the .skb file and zoom in to the part you want to print.
Than set under camera tab, the carmera to ''parralel projection''. Then under camera click ''standard view'' and than ''top view''.
After this you need to figule a little bit around and do a ''print preview'' to see how manny pages sketchup does want to print,
because sketchup tends to also print the border space, so always first try preview print.
After you've printed the template simple glue it onto a piece of CF or GFK and you have youre guide lines where to cut beside.
.SKB file You need a extractor like winrar though.
For those who wan't a rib bone design landing gear can order it at shapeways. I've also added 5 and 10 pieces. (look under my account).
Oké now some pictures.
To be continued.
