Hi, does your pickle_frame_v2 support 0802, 1103, and Amaxinno 1103? From the DXF it looks like it supports alot of different sizes.

Question, when I open the v3 .dxf it looks like it's incomplete. Some lines are missing

Both v2 and v3 supports 08 to 11 motors with 3 or 4 holes. I’ll check the dxf file maybe it got corrupt

Will both v2 and v3 support the Amaxinno 1103 motors?

Yes, same motor mount on both frames

I'm thinking about building this frame with the amax motors and a Crazybee F4. Any experience of the durability yet? Am I correct that the braces of the v3 frame are to increase durability and does the USB cutout also work with the Crazybee FC?

Hi, be careful with the crazybee board. Some users noticed that it have a weak 5v regulator that tend to fail after a few flights. Workarounds exists anyway. For the frame itself both versions have a cut that will work with any whoop format board I think, so no problem here. Both frames should be equally durable. The one with the struts/braces was intended to provide easy access to the motor wires.

Hello, thank you for your work :)
Is it possible to buy one or more carbon frames from you directly ?
I do not know any friends able to cut them out on carbon for me.
Postal shipping from france to germany should be not a problem :)

Checkout www.fpv360.de

Hello. I get mines from cncdrone https://m.facebook.com/CNCDrone/. I guess he should be able to ship to Germany as well.
Basically he’ll ask for the dxf file and thickness (2mm). Let me know if any issue

Also any chance for a light weight version of the battery holder? It's over 3g now.

Can try. This one is solid. Could be made lighter but can’t guarantee the durability

Awesome work on the light version of the battery holder. Can you please please make one that fits gnb 450mah. Size is 450mah is 13mm x 18mm x 62mm

Just uploaded a GNB450 version of the light holder. Could you give it a try and tell me if it's fine ?

Yes no problem, will upload something this week

I tried the battery holder with gnb 450mah and it does not fit.

This one is designed to fit the beta75x batteries (and tattu 450 mah long version)

I think the gnb 2s stick type are slightly larger

300mah is 13.5mm x 17mm x 50mm
450mah is 13mm x 18mm x 62mm
550mah is 14mm x 18mm x 67mm

link is in the description in the "camera mounts" paragraph ;)

Has anyone moved the 2s FC and ESC separates stack from a Beta75X to one of these yet?

Should work as well. It will simply need taller spacers.

Wow, a lot of progress in a week :) Still amazed.
Do you know the weight of the frame? Just interested... the AUW is very promising

thanks, the v2 frame is 5.2 grams (2mm carbon fibre)

Would you be so kind as to make a version of the V2 frame with the 3 hole mounting pattern for motors?

Sure. Can you give me a reference of 3 hole motor to check the spec?

Comments deleted.

Thanks for the fast reply!
Racerstar 0703 1s 22000kv is what I will be using, which utilizes a widely-manufactured 3 hole pattern so it will work with quite a few of these micro motors that have 3 hole bases.

Dimensions are shown in an image at the bottom of this link: https://goo.gl/1BAZQN

I've uploaded the 3 holes frames (v2 and v3). Please take a look and tell me if it's ok, a bit of guesswork for the center hole.

Okay, so it's not the right measurements unfortunately. The screw holes need to be equidistant at 5.5mm apart, creating a perfect triangle. The circle in the center of the triangle only needs to be 3.5mm in total diameter. I hope that makes sense.

I love the flare you added to it on the tips! Where do you go to get carbon cut in your area?

whoops :(

i've corrected the v2 version, lack on concentration :)

I get it cut from a guy here in France, the name is cncdrone.

You nailed it!!!! Absolutely perfect on the hole spacing & center hole. Fantastic job!
You just became the first designer on Thingiverse that I've tipped :-D
Now to find someone here in Dallas who can cut carbon fiber! Which file type usually works best for your cutting guy?

Thanks mate ! First time i got tipped :))

usually cutting services use the DXF file only. Hope you'll find where to cut it. btw, the right price should be around 15$ without shipping.

No no, thank YOU sir! Yaaaay congratulations! It's the least I could do :-)

I found a guy who can cut them for exactly $15, pretty excited! Actually I found more people to cut than I had expected.
Thanks again, Alex! I'll report back how they came out.

I'm in Austin and I'd be very interested in getting a couple of these cut too. Could you message me the place you got yours at? Thanks!

Hey man, sorry for delay in response!

Go to cncmadness.com and send them an email. Can't remember the guy's name who runs it, but he was INCREDIBLE! Not only did he reply almost immediately to my order that I placed around 7pm, but he cut them that night and shipped the next day. To boot, he turned the dxf files at an angle to work with the weave of the carbon fiber. Highly recommend them!

No worries at all, thanks for getting back to me!

I wound up finding a thread on the RCGroups forums the night I posted that question to you in here. They had a bunch of CNC shops listed and I emailed every one of them for a quote. What do you know, cncmadness got back to me right away and it went just like you said it did for you. Super fast, cheap, and friendly. Can't wait to get it and start my build :)

Great ! Let me know how it builds up when you'll get the frame. I've test flown mine today, flies really well.

Got them cut and shipped & they arrived in 2 days! Looks so good Alex, really great work. Will build them up this weekend. So glad we worked on the 3 hole pattern and spacing, it's perfect!
I put a post up on the Tiny Whoop group on Facebook about this project so you may see a little more activity :-)

Guess we need another version. The amax inno 1103 motors Kabab recommends is a bigger 3 hole pattern :)

I saw that! Always good to have more options.
Still can't stop admiring this frame! Such a trip to have carbon cut and shipped, gives me big ideas. Getting my feet wet with design, thanks to inspiration from you Alex!

Downloading now and I'll print a few layers off, check the specs & report back.

Ok got it. Maybe I can reduce the size of the motor stand as well, those motors are so tiny :)

It's such a great design & Kabab is doing some neat work here. Awesome inspiration piece you've created! I'm definitely going to buy a few of Kabab's once they're back in stock, but this will be fun in the meantime.

Thanks mate! Do not hesitate to buy Kabab’s frames. He deserves a lot of credit for pushing things forward in the hobby

You are most welcome! Oh absolutely, I'm a supporter. It's so much fun to watch this hobby grow and be a part of it!
Yeah I think the motor stand in his first iteration was more arrow-like for these specific motors, but I'm down to see whatever you come up with :-)

Great design!
Do you have any flight videos to share? Really interested. I've already seen Kababs videos :)

Thanks, haven't flown it yet :(

It should behave the same as Kabab's frame because it's a very simple design fitting the same hardware.
