This is a prototype Micro Spider-H Quad I've been working on. The design is intended to replace the conventional wood designs that most people use for H-Quads. The arms are angled outwards at 25 degrees so that any load encountered during a crash will be felt mostly as an axial load rather than a perpendicular load. The center spine is arched upwards slightly, partially for aesthetics and partially because it helps the arms form a stronger bond with the spine. I haven't been able to test/weigh this quad yet.


This Micro Spider H-Quad is designed to work with the following components:

Turnigy 1811 2900KV Motor
Turnigy Plush 6A ESC
KK2.0 (or any controller with 45mm hole spacing)
M2 Shouldered Screws (for mounting the controller and the motors)

The print will require support material - some below the spine arc and some below each of the arms, as they are all filleted.

I tried loading the file into a Replicator 2x. It says its to big. What machine would this fit in? Thanks.

There is another Micro H-Quadcopter that I uploaded which is a modified version of this frame that can print on the Rep2. I originally printed this frame on an Ultimaker with a 7" x 7" bed.

Thanks. I will try that.

Hello, having a 3d printer reduces that cost a lot. Printing that is maybe maximum a 3-5 usd. But you are looking at firms which prints. Ofc it costs! :) The printer itself are over 1000euro. So actually its 1k Euro and 3-5 USD for this if you wanna do it yourself ;)

Nice job. Did I send you the models for the motors and ESCs or did you make them? I have the KK2 modeled too.

Yeah, I got bored during finals so I decided to model them. Could you send me the KK2?
