DroneBot Quadcopter Robot by FlyHighRC Mar 17, 2013

Description

This is DRONEBOT! Its a 3D Printable quadcopter which is so incredibly tiny!
260mm motor shaft centre to motor shaft centre.

If you want a complete RC FPV Drone then this is what you’ll need. Though everything for a complete drone is pretty pricy some things such as the transmitter only need to be purchased once..the transmitter had something called model memory so you could have say 6 different models all with different settings and you just click the model that you programmed and named in a menu for the model that you want to fly. Also these batteries can be used on other models.

Parts list:
X4) Brushless motors hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/__5378__C1822_Micro_brushless_Outrunner_2100kv_14g_.html
X4) Speed Controllers hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/__18002__HobbyKing_Red_Brick_10A_ESC.html
X4)Propellers hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/__22753__5030_Propellers_Black_3xCW_and_3xCCW_6pcs_per_bag.html (you will break props in the learning process so buy as many sets as your budget allows)
X1) Flight Controller hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/__22322__MultiWii_NanoWii_ATmega32U4_Micro_Flight_Controller_USB_GYRO_ACC.html
X5)Batteries hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/__18847__Turnigy_800mAh_3S_30C_Lipo_Pack.html ( I recommend getting as many batteries as you can, I recommend at least 5 since that means you can fly over and over once the last pack is depleted you can add the next charged one and recharge the other)
X1) Transmitter hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/__8992__Turnigy_9X_9Ch_Transmitter_w_Module_8ch_Receiver_Mode_2_v2_Firmware_.html (includes the receiver)
X2) Gold Connectors hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/__66__2mm_Gold_Connectors_10_pairs_20pc_.html (very commonly used to connext motors to speed controllers, SOLDERING REQUIRED)
X1) FPV System hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/__20672__Fat_Shark_Predator_RTF_FPV_Headset_System_w_Camera_and_5_8G_TX.html (Includes all fpv equipment)
X1)Cloverleaf Antennas hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/__27750__5_8GHz_Circular_Polarized_spiroNet_Antenna.html (Highly recommended over the standard antennas that come with the FPV System as they improve range..over a Mile..)

It is Developed as my entry into a Develop3Ds printer competition :)

I am printing the arms right now. I will post pictures when the entire thing is complete. Great looking design but just by looking at the arms right now I do not think the escs will fit in them. Will update once it is complete.... I may try and scale it by 150% if this doesn't work.

do you hve any pictures?

has anyone made this? any pictures? what support settings did you guys use?

Great design btw..
I printed this on my Solidoodle 3, the walls of the frame are too thin.. I had to print a lot of support material.. and when removing it the frame broke in half.. thickness of walls need increased x 2

Thanks very much :) Sorry to hear that..how did the arms turn out? Ill update the fuselage body asap :) Thanks for giving it a go. are you abl to send pictures of the result? good or bad so i can see if anything else needs sorting while im increasing the wall thickness

Are there any flight videos of this cute little thing

Not just yet, Im 19 and cant afford a 3D printer. This is actually my entry to win a 3D printer which if i win it will be built with full instructional video :) Thank you

Neat. Any specs?
:-)

I have added the length, will add a parts list soon, be aware i have not printed this as i dont own a 3D printer. But do have experience with multirotors. I will be updating as i go :)
