This Hexacopter is based off of my Quadcopter designs.
(Which are based off of MikeyB's Quadcopter.)
Changes from the previous design include:
- 2 more arms, for a total of 6
- Longer arms,
- Better landing gears
- Overall redesigns for improved usability
The hexacopter was printed on an UltiMax DYI 3D printer because the arms do not fit on many printers, and I needed larger print bed.
Just added V2 files for stronger arms, and better camera mounting. Don't use original arms as the motor mountings could fail.
I have a blog following the development of my project.
