This is a customizable module that I've been working on to allow you to build a propeller duct system. It is research based and should give you a noticeable improvement in duration and/or power from your system (if you can keep it fairly light and stick close to the referenced figures).

The module is for use in a ducted quad-copter that I'm designing, but as ever I like to share my modules in case it makes anyone's life easier with their designs.

If you need more details that aren't obvious in the Customizer app have a look in the .SCAD file itself - I've put a fairly serious key in about all the variables at the top of the file.

I would love to see 3", 4" and 6" fan ducts. I would also love to see just the inner core wall to be printed separately to decrease the weight of the overall UAV. I cannot do CAD drawings so I am hoping someone could do them for me and I will test them out. I would gladly tip a good amount for the drawings to be done.

This is a great idea, I'd love to see someone do a practical implementation in a larger prop size than the current two inch quads, like a 3" prop.

Hello,how i can do for print only the inner wall at 2 mm. for example ?
