Micro Quadcopter R2 by PolakiumEngineering Sep 2, 2012

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.

Kits and parts are available for purchase from my website:

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.

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.
