Team-blacksheep have very nice frame for DJI-NAZA with some fancy PDB, but I don't have NAZA and I wanted some modification to mount APM2/2.5, so here is my version of that frame, no fancy PDB and PCBs, just black fiberglass :)

If you do have DJI NAZA go get that frame right NOW !

 APM2.0 with 90° pins fits under the top plate with analog and telemetry pins exposed.

APM2.5 with ublox GPS.

Set the LED_MODE parameter to 9, It will slow blink when disarmed, solid armed, fast blink + beep on low battery.

The CG and the APM location moved a little bit, but it can fly as regular X quad. (don't pull back too much)

I just changed the AP_MotorsQuad.cpp X frame set-up to:



Motors: Tiger MS2212-13 980KV

ESC: jDrones 18A (Flashed with SimonK FW)

I really like the 10X5 Graupner e-props (or new Carbon 10X5 e-props) with 4S 3000mah lipo, after some fine-tuning its very sharp fly.

Here some raw clips from Arducopter 2.8.1 tuning flights:

BTW Jani from jDrones (that where I CNC all my custom frames ;) ) has put together fancy RTF kit, so check that one out.


The top outside hols for the arms are ~0.5mm off, I think so chek it before cuting.

Love the modification Oyvind Amundsen made, I want one :)

Thank you Bas Tijs

Here is my mod including the combined ESC mounts/Legs I have made.

n this image the tubes are 250mm long, I´m going to make them shorter - Next test I plan to try 190mm

I´ll try to share my files using skydrive:

ESC mount/Legs - Sketchup!931&authkey=!ALUZvBrcSZMm1z4

CP - dxf!932&authkey=!AJa3xtjJFsmZM6A

I´m working on a new frame based on this one, but with the motors in X quad position and 50cm motor - motor.

Thanks for sharing! But I think the center plate points to the wrong file? (ESC_Legs_3.skp)

Which thickness fiberglass plate did you use?

Comment by Yves Gohy on May 1, 2013 at 11:18am

I built with 2mm

As soon as I finished I will share it, of course.
