    Carbon fiber thickness

    Hi Guys

    I'm back after a long break and now AQ supports more than 4 motors I'm looking to build a hexa. I'm also looking at using carbon fiber for the centre panels. My question though is what is the best thickness? I seem to be able to get 1.5mm thick carbon fibre sheets ok but will that be strong enough for panels that measure around 150mm across at the widest point? or should i look to go for thicker 2mm stuff instead? I know CF is strong but having not really worked with it before I'm interested to see what you guys reckon will be strong enough.

    For the arms?

    For the center plate we're using a 1.5mm thick Carbon fiber sheet. Haven't had any issues with it.
