UPDATE 4/30/17: The arms actually fit onto the plate now! Make sure when you're printing that the X looking piece is flat side down (there's a .3mm lip that needs to be printed)
UPDATE 4/27/17: I added the files for the GPS mount, but I will be remaking it ASAP
UPDATE 4/25/17: Mount for GPS made (I didn't include the GPS pole since I'm still working on it), new, more ridged arms (still working on them!)
UPDATE 4/23/17: New FC plate to allow for better cable management and removal. The quad's height is now 47mm. (2-3mm added, I don't remember the exact number)
I designed this quadcopter for a senior capstone project. I created it with modular design in mind as well as autonomous flight. It is designed to carry a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B, a standard 36mm 250mm class flight controller (I am using the PixRacer V1 for autonomous flight).
The arms are modular, designed for standard 2204/2202 brushless motors with 16x19mm bolt pattern.
In the photos, I have printed it in eSun PLA Pro, but I plan to print in NylonX by Matterhackers.
The STLs are exact dimensions, so adjust your prints accordingly!
Updates will come regularly, as I make changes.
- Add landing gear
- Change PDP to standard mounting pattern
- Add mounting support for PX4Flow
Change the how the XT60 mounting
- Move the RX holes
Adjust standoffs for new FC (PixRacer)
Add support for GPS mount
- Create 'racing' middle stack (remove RPi3)
If you're slicing in Simplify3D, MAKE SURE DENSE SUPPORTS ARE OFF, especially for the arms!
