The Next Entry in my Drone designs.
This drone is designed to be sturdy, thin, playful, and easy to repair in case of a crash.
The beautiful thing here, is its aluminum frame, which is light and strong, and available from any hardware store, for almost no cash. Very affordable, and it makes up the majority of the copter. The Frame is 1/8" X 1" and the length I used is 16". Two of them of course. The design simply crosses the two frames at the center, but the motor mounts are adjusted to keep the motors level which each other.
Then, if you haven't noticed, I am NOT a fan of exposed wires. I don't like it. It doesn't look clean, it's not aerodynamic and there's very little reason not to just hide them away.
The frame covers, which hide the wires, (without zip ties) come in three types: Low, Mid, High. Use which ever covers you need, for the ESC's and motors you mount. The covers are made to be an exact fit, so they snap on and snap off, with very little effort.
So, you can adjust or repair your copter with ease. Plus, this model is VERY slick, so is great for trick flight.
Pending is a very versatile camera gimbal mount system.
Detailed installation and setup instructions pending, but really. It i?s very easy to put together. You can tell how to build it, from the pictures alone.
The canopy is designed to easily snap off, but stay put during flight.
If you have any questions or suggestions, let me know. I'm interested in any feedback out there.
