I've been having tons of fun flying my smaller quads around that I've only flown my big quad 2x in the last 8 months.
So I thought i'd rebuild it and make it big enough so that I can turn it into an X8 or even octo and then put my dslr on it and do some aerial photography
for now, i'm sticking with just 4 motors so i can get a feel for how this flies, and then i'll add more motors.
this frame is all carbon fiber and g10/fr4(motor mounts)
I even turned my dremel and dremel drill press into a manual cnc machine to help cut the CF disks and arms. It worked out very well.
motor to motor: 22inches
weight(frame+motors+2200mah battery+8" gws 3blade props): 750g
Estimated weight when its ready to fly: less than 900g
now for the pictures:
What do you guys think?
I'm looking to get some 10mm x 10mm square aluminum tubing for the arms, I don't think the CF arms will work well under compression from the center plates and motor mounts.
