Recommended "best value for money" Setup
About the Design
I took a shot at designing a printable FPV racing frame because I want to have a cheap "training" quad for racing practice with good component protection and the possibility to quickly print some spare parts when I need them. The design makes the quad as stiff as most carbon fames when printed with the right material. The weight turned out quite good (87g with hardware and w/o screws).Not much more than a regular carbon racing frame. I flew around 30 Packs so far without any issues. Crash resistance seems fine but i didn't have any really hard impacts yet.
To get the necessary stiffness I used 20% carbon PET at 100% infill. Haven't tried other materials yet...
