I am designing the frame myself; it's a mix of 3/4" aluminum tubing and 3D printed plastic parts.
Simulate your copter with http://www.ecalc.ch/xcoptercalc_e.htm it is free and it will tell you if your motors, ESCs, batteries, propellers are suitable for the weight of your copter. It is not hard to use, don't be afraid by the first impression.
