The last post I show you pictures of my 3D printed quad. It took me more than thought to test it in flight.  The climate and labor, plotted.

Test flight was successful. It flew solid, pretty stable, less noisy than my other models (May be I'm getting deft). 
3s 4000mah LiPo = 10 min.

I have to work on it lighter. I have some ideas. But for now I'll finish the gimbal G3.

  • I don't know if it's a good idea to ziptie lipos. I think they need some "breathing" room. BTW the normal alarming voltage on a std. cheapo liposaver is too low. When the cheapos beep you are already damaging the lipo.

  • Federico, a Makerbot Replicator clone called Flashforge. Thanks the battery holder idea came from
    Thanks Starwalt.
    Roberto, thanks I saw your wonderful models, and I'm looking forward for flight tests. The big problems were:

    1-ABS Warping: large peaces needed special anchor surfaces to avoid it. But very large peaces as main body, suffered random layering cracks that I did sealed with ABS acetone solution. BTW arms + special archors  didn't suffered it, couse are not too large on Z axis.

    2-Joints: arms joints, battery holder needed to be printed a couple of times til achieve the exact friction wanted.

    3-Weight: I need to make it lighter, maybe 150 or 200 gr. I think it's possible couse some peaces as main body has too thin walls, some structural problems can be resolved with local nerves in order to avoid large thin walls. 

    4-Large peaces sliced to fit my printer plate were glue together using acetone ABS solution, 

  • Waiting STL-files ;-)

  • Your battery clip is brilliant!

    Nice to see it up in the air. Great job. 

    How much does it cost in material to print the whole thing?

    Great Job Ale :) What' kind of printer are you using for print your frame ? What' kind of problem do you found for produce it ? How many hours need ? 



  • Great Job Ale, and nice music too! I want one of this and the best thing is I don't have to pay custom tax!!!!
  • Ooops - APM I see. (Should have read the previous post)

    Mea Culpa!


  • Outstanding! Congratulations on the project.

    What control electronics are you using?

    3D print on!


  • Nice project and a good job! 

  • And the battery holder, nice idea!
