Intro


The goal of this project was to create a small, modular, printable quadcopter body. I aimed to keep this as simple as possible.

The quadcopter is made up of a core, and 4 arms. All arms are identical.

Why you take my name!

This thing is cool, but I suggest some sort of platform under the hub so the electronic components don't fall out while its flying
