Joe's FPV QuadCopter variant
by JoeMattie, published
The arms are now solid. I ran several tests and the solid arms only weigh around 1.5 grams heavier when printed at 25% infill and are more rigid.
I beefed up the landing gears after having a few of mine break, and rotated the motor mounts by 45 degrees so that the wiring is neater. The ESCs mount on the bottom and are enclosed by the ESC covers.
The wiring is contained by the snap-in sidewall covers.
The top cover protects your electronics, and has a removable window for those of us with KK2 boards to facilitate tweaking the settings without having to disassemble the quad.
I also modified the top plate to accept an FC mounted in either X or + orientation.
I will update this thing as I continue to mod and update my quad.
As of right now, this is 100% tested and working in PLA. I printed the ESC covers and other cosmetic parts in ABS.

You should get a LiPo charger for your batteries.. HobbyKing has several. Does anyone have a recco for Jmpk12? Mine is in the mail, so I cannot vouch.
JoeMattie , how much air time are you getting with you setup? I pretty much got everything you listed and am printing some smaller props now, but ecalc is saying that the flight time with a 2500mah 25c battery is like three minutes. This sound right?
This is a beautiful design. Thanks for sharing. I am new to quadcopters, but have been researching. I have a parts list I have found between here and the forum you posted. Does anyone know of anything else I need to add to the list? One thing I'm confused on is which of these components interfaces with the receiver that comes with the remote? Any thoughts or missed items?

You will also need some nuts and bolts for mounting everything together.
