Bitcraze Crazyflie washer by VGer May 8, 2013

Description

A bit of a joke but here is my contribution towards preventing the Bitcraze Crazyflie impacted bearing sindrome. A plastic washer with a height of 0.7mm and an internal diameter of 2.5mm and an outer diameter of less than 6mm. Preferably use plastic rather than metal washers because of weight.

I will generate a file so that you can print 4 of them in one go.

Thanks for the tips.
Well, maybe it is thick enough - if I flip it upside down...
I printed one of these on a Replicator last night and while the inner hole is perfect, and the outter diameter is good (a bit big but fine), the height isn't enough to be a spacer for the motors.

The bitcraze homepage says the spacer should be thicker then the metal protrusion on the motor itself. This spacer is close, but not quite there.

Also, please put four of these into a single file! Printing one of these at a time is silly. Hell, put 8 of em on there so we can print extras!

Thanks for the work!

Instructions

Print it and fit it between the Crazyflie motor bearing and prop. You can use an ordinary plastic washer with similar dimensions to the same purpose.
