Would there be any interest in a 3DR Quadcopter Carbon Fiber Frame? All the parts made of carbon fiber. Is there a structural reason this would be a bad idea?
What if we could have a 3DR Quadcopter with molded carbon fiber frame? I would like molded tall legs and eliminate the spacers and screws. What if the arms, legs, and braces were molded as a single carbon fiber unit. Then screw together the center equipment tower?
I, for one, would certainly like to have a lighter and stronger 3DR quadcopter or any frame configuration. The DIY hobby has significantly evolved since its inception and I would like to have a higher quality 3DR frame. If the quadcopter could be lighter and stronger and it could be made bigger and stronger. The existing 3DR quadcopter size makes FPV, telemetry, GoPro w/gimble, sonar and optical sensor difficult if there is any expected decent flight time. The current 3DR quadcopter is like a .40 RC plane, I'm ready for .60 or giant scale - FPV and GoPro with ease and 20 minutes would be wonderful.
