Lightweight 3D Printed Endurance Quadcopter

I'd like to share a project I've been busy with for the past months. It's a lightweight, small size quadcopter built for long flight time. The AUW of the quad is 85g, and uses geared propulsion with micro DC motors. Controlled by a F4 brushed flight controller, and using a 300mah 2S lipo battery. With this configuration it achieves around 10 mins flight time, which could be further increased with a redesign of some structural parts focusing further on…
