Hi all, since the year 2013 I am developing my own frame to adapt the flight controller "Pixhawk" and a System On Chip, with the goal of creating a custom drone for use in defense operations, has been a long road for me, because I had to design all parts and I will continue to work very hard until to get the desired result.

Software used
- Blender 3D for the CAD design of all parts.
- MeshCam V6 for the conversion of the CAD files to G-Code.
- Easel G-Code Interpreter of the company "".

Tools and equipment used
- CNC Router, Model X-Carve of ""
- Kyocera 1745 Solid Carbide 3 Flute Extended Reach Ball Nose End Mills 0.0625" tools.
M.A. FORD 132 13212500 SOLID CARBIDE 1/8" END MILL

Methods and materials employed
- ProFinish Carbon Fiber 2/2 Twill 3k 200g
- Alluminio 7075T
- acrylic plastic
- Xencast PX30 Soft Flexible Polyurethane Rubber
