Is there any chance of someone making the arms with 12mm motor mount holes? That way it can be used with the very common rcx 1804 motors without adapters.
Will this thing fly a Gopro camera?
Running 2400kv motors, 1500mah battery.
yes you can use abs.
you can reinforce the model strength using acetone vapor bath

Instructions

This is a 250mm M2M quadcopter frame. It is designed in a flame wheel style.

With 25% infill and 2 perimiters and 2 top and bottom layers the frame weighs in a t 45 grams (PLA). It is quite stiff and should hold up well.

It will require 12 M3 or 4-40 screws and nuts for assembly. If you use nylon screws then you will be able to cut them flush to the frame. Otherwise you'll need 8X 8mm screws and 4X 25mm screws.

This frame was designed in SolidWorks and then repaired in Netfabb to ensure all parts are perfectly manifold.

hello guys,

can i print this quadcopter with ABS because i am new to 3d printing amd i have only ABS plastic ?
it will be weaker and it will destroyed easy ?

thanks,

i wonder if this frame would fit parrot AR vitamins..
did someone try and put a NAZA Lite on this quad? Just asking...
Hey tos, can you make a parts list on what motors and esc's you used please
I am very new to the quad-copter scene. I would really appreciate if someone could help me out with build, parts and electronics selections. I have the frame printed, the frame itself looks pretty cool but that is as far as I got :( Most of the comments here mention the motor...but what other electronics would I need? Can I put a GPS with this frame as well? I would really appreciate if someone could educate me on this subject or at least share links where I can find specific answers for building a quad-copter. Thanks.
Is this the BC FPV guys?
Hello all,

Would it be possible to export the files to something that's a bit easier to use than sldprt? Really, anything else should hopefully be a bit easier to find. I love this design, but it doesn't work for me as stock and I'd love to be able to modify it as opposed to starting from scratch..

tarek : )
Have you been able to record a video of this flying?
Hi, I was wondering if anybody could tell me the frame size, motor-to-motor diagonally? It looks to be about 330-450mm, but I can't be sure since nobody really mentions frame sizes on thingiverse.
What size props is everyone running??
Made, modified,waiting for Hobby King parts to fly it.
I made my first tests this week: this quad is really great! I'm using 1811-2900 kv motors, 10A ESC, 3000mA 3S battery. The quad flies at 45% throttle, has a good autonomy, and is really powerfull! The only drawback is its weight (because of the battery): when falling (I'm a newby pilot!), things brake :o/
I plan to redesign the arms, with a rib at the bottom, and a hull, to save propellers. I'll post new pictures (and a video) soon.

Are you really using a 3S battery? What motors?
orias - in reply to fma
I thought about using those batteries, but I find that the 1500 mAh batteries are the best balance so far. I haven't had a chance to try any in the 2k range.
Hi tosjduenfs, Made one and uploaded a picture. Love it! Thanks so much.
Do you have a link or any more info on the battery you're using? I'm having a hard time finding one that'll fit. Or have you taken just any 3S and mounted it underneath the base plate? Thanks.

Great model by the way. I used ABS at 20% infill; 2 perimeters and 3 layers top/bottom and it's come out beautifully. Really sturdy.
would you be willing to export in a different format? I would like to try this with plywood...thanks in advance
What format are you looking for? It is posted in stl and sldprt format.
dxf, eps, ai, pdf...anything that can be open in a vector based program. or even a top view wireframe render would help, I could vectorize it and share your design in such format
Hi tosjduenfs, I am thinking about adding a few mods to your frame such as esc mounting brackets and wire guides on the quad arms. Can you share your solidworks files?
Sure, I'll post them up in a little bit.
That would be great thanks. I can almost see this thingy flying over the weekend...
I posted the sldprt files, go nuts!
Can you explain what "3S batteries" mean? Thanks
Sure. Lithium batteries are categorized by how many cells they have in series and how many they have in parallel. A 3s battery is 3 lithium cells wired in series, so the nominal voltage is 11.1v. If you see a battery that also has a p in the designation that tells how many cells are in parallel. So a 3s 2p battery has a total of 6 cells two sets of 3 batteries are wired in series, the two "series" packs are then wired in parallel to double the capacity of the battery. Equivalent to putting two 3s (1p) batteries in series.
Mike,

  There are mounting holes for KK2 and CC or anything with similar mounting patterns.Mike
What flight controller did you design this frame for? What FC are you using?
Well the hobbyking website is down right now otherwise I'd give you a link.  But I used the 18-11 2000kv motors with plush 6A escs, 5x3x3 props, and 3S batteries.
2000kv!? that's very much... you can't buy them on hobbyking for quadcopters!
could you give the link now? ;) and also a link to the props :P
Excellent! I'm in the process of printing one now. What motors do you recommend for this?
