I am printing all my parts in ABS right now while before I used PLA but had no issues. I am working on changing the rear servo mount to reduce material and over all size and should have that posted soon. I used 2 R4Z 1/4"x5/8"x0.196" Shielded Ball Bearing for the rear motor mount and a 1/4"x2.5" Pin. The next update is to make a cover for the KK2.

I like that your yaw system uses bearings. How well did it work in flight? Do you still use it, or have you changed to something else?

This is awesome! I'm building a MendelMax 1.5, primarily so I can 3D print parts to fly FPV aircraft. Building my first tri-copter is next on the list.
