WORK IN PROGRESS! Update notes can be found below.
First off all, shoutout to KababFPV and Bishop_Vick (https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3358809)!
I have tried to design this micro frame specifically for 3D printing with a .4 mm nozzle. Main inspiration for this frame is thing:3358809
It is designed to work with 65mm props and a tinywhoop style Flight Controller
The bare frame weight is around 6.7 grams printed in PLA.
Use 0.2 layer height with standard 0.4 nozzle.
Wall thickness can be set to 3, same for bottom and top layers. Make sure the infill is set at 100%.
Flip the model over onto the flat side for printing. No supports required. No brim required for PLA (recommended for ABS/PETG). Sliced in Simplify3D without any issues.
The frame doesn't have a battery mount as part of it at the moment, I might introduce an updated version with mount later.
EDIT 1 - 3 February 2019:
Finally received all parts required to make a functional build.
Frame version 1 was not stiff enough, causing a ton of vibrations.
Designed and printed a camera mount. (not final, the camera is currently held in place with tape)
Uploaded an updated frame version - V1.3.
- Camera mount
- Thicker, reinforced frame
- Included a battery mount, batteries can be held in place using a small velcro strap. I cut one to size, you could also use a ready-to-use velcro cable tie strap.
Weight of build with new frame as seen in the photograph is at 44.44 grams (without batteries).
Parts I'm using on this build:
AMAXinno 1103 7500kv brushless motors
F3 Flight Controller: http://bit.ly/2Ghoh1h
Alternative F4 FC:http://bit.ly/2MNZ2Fe
AIO Camera: http://bit.ly/2HMrSXx
You'll need to drill out the propellor mounting hole to make it fit over the 1.5mm shaft of the motors. The hole needs to be 0.1 - 0.05mm smaller for a snug fit:
