Description

This micro quadcopter is 3D printed with ABS plastic parts. The arms are capable of bending without fracturing under a heavy impact, yet they are rigid under a normal load. These attributes are perfect for a micro multicopter frame.

Any luck getting the Arms STL file separated out? All of the arms will not fit on my ToM build plate (even after being enlarged to 110mmx110mm).
Any suggestion for good starting values for PID on the KK2?
Nice, but it desperately needs nut traps if you don't want to mount the flight controller with double-side tape.

Anyone flying one of these? I'm looking at ordering some parts.
Printed one up using black PLA for everything except the front arms, there I used Glow-In-The-Dark PLA :) Super glued together. Gonna put some 2000kv motors + 6amp ESCs and a Crius All In One (MWC) on it. I'll post another photo when I'm done.
I should note, the frame came out weighing 45g. Was printed w/ 3 solid layers, 2 borders, and .20 # fill.
Looks like an DJI FLAME WHEEL. ;)
What sort of flight time to you get out of this little beauty, Nice work!
I just finished wiring this up and I haven't put in a full flight on this frame, but with my other frame (same size and components) I got 9 minutes.
Keep us posted, I always think picking a battery for a quad is one of the hardest part, if you go too high you spend twice the energy just to hold the weight of the cell, and you add 900Mah extra for an extra 60 seconds flight time and hot motors :-P, I had that issue with my Pleshy quad, tested with a 1300mah, got 5 mins, tested with a 2200mah, got 6 mins, 1800mah is in the post ;)
