Are the dimensions is mm or inches?
I did, hence nothing was rasterized, instead vectorized from scratch...tweaks will take place once I have the motors up and running

I knew the original was screaming to be laser cut, it would both be faster and cheaper. Good result too!

Looks good :) How do you convert the 3D model into the 2D design? Did you import it into a 3D modeller and export as a top view??
I did save top view jpeg's of the models and and in illustrator I vectorized it. The models are simple enough!
Worked very effectively as well. So, you didn't edit the models after importing? I would of thought that the arms are likely to require stabilizing, unless you don't mind huge vibrations disrupting the quad
