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


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.

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! ;)

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!

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