Quadrocopter Multicopter Centerplate and Lipo holder by gzebedin Jan 3, 2013

Description

I was in need of a new centerplate for a quad. I wanted one for 45mm and 35mm controller. Also I needed to fix some FPV equipment and a plate for the lipo. So I designed this centerplate for use with 10x10mm and 15x15mm aluminium. I had it made from CFK 2mm and it is rocksolid and unbreakable. Units in mm

I have Pentium 30A (real ones, not fakes...) so I guess I won't have any problem at all. So, I'll definetly try your way (I have a SK450 frame now, arms wobble too much, I'm not happy with it).
dont know about your setup but usually ist VERY difficult to overheat ESC with >=20Amps.... with cheap 6A or 10A this can happen a lot but 20A.... almost no way :-)
I was thinking the same position, my only fear was that they could get too hot in the centerplate, but I guess heat won't be a problem, I'll try your solution...

Very nice location, great flying too! ;)

Instructions

You can take all 5 STL files which provide you with a full set.

Feel free to use the SKP files to modify it in sketchup. Or enjoy the design with the DAE files.

I dont use any motor mounts. I fix the motors directly to the alu frame. just 19mm distance between 2 3,5mm holes and some loctite to fix the screws. and with 15mm Alu one can put the cables inside too :-)
Very smart! So I guess I'll need just a sort of tap to for the alu end (they are sharp..). And what about the landing skid? Please don't tell me you don't use any! :D

p.s. cables inside alu, very clean, but where did you put the esc's? Any pics of your rig? Thanks!
I always put the ESC on the centerplate. I dont have a video of this setup but have a look at this build. vimeo.com/45363863

Which motor mount are you using with it? Thanks for this great frame!
