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?

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.

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.

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.

zonecap on Feb 23, 2013 said:

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

tosjduenfs on Feb 12, 2013 said:

What format are you looking for? It is posted in stl and sldprt format.

VGer on Jan 8, 2013 said:

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?

tosjduenfs on Jan 8, 2013 said:

Sure, I'll post them up in a little bit.

librav on Dec 22, 2012 said:

Can you explain what "3S batteries" mean? Thanks

tosjduenfs on Dec 22, 2012 said:

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?

Thank you!

tosjduenfs on Nov 17, 2012 said:

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.

DORITO on Jun 21, 2013 said:

2000kv!? that's very much... you can't buy them on hobbyking for quadcopters!

buZztiaan on Jun 19, 2013 said:

could you give the link now? ;) and also a link to the props :P

x2800m on Nov 17, 2012 said:

Excellent! I'm in the process of printing one now. What motors do you recommend for this?
