3D Printable Folding Micro H-Quad


Hello, a few weeks ago another DIYD member posted about my 3D printable micro h-quad frame design. I posted the files to about 2 months ago. In that time it has got a lot of attention and has become a featured "thing" on the site.

I have launched a web store that sells frame kits for those without a printer. Hardware kits are also available for those with a printer but don't want to source all the little pieces.

When printed in ABS, the frame has proven to be quite durable. My flight test team and I have crashed ours quite a bit and they continue to hold up.

The frame is designed for FPV and shooting video with a mobius or gopro. The upper level is separated with 6 vibration dampeners that do a great job of removing jello even with unbalanced props and low quality motors.

Lick Observatory - Brushless Gimbal



Some video I shot yesterday flying around the Lick Observatory on Mt. Hamilton. This video is the start of the reason I got into multi-rotors years ago. Capturing smooth aerial video.

Shot with NO post stabilization or in-camera stabilization. Footage slowed from 60p to 24p. InfinityM brushless gimbal on a Droidworx AD6 frame with XM extended landing gear and quick release rails. Using Alexmos gimbal controller running 2.1 firmware. Filmed with a Sony NEX-7 and SELP 16-50mm lens.
