Create an affordable stable platform for filming that was full featured and outperformed similar quads on the market. After months of testing and revising our design we have achieved success. We have created a super light extremely rigid frame that has superb flight time is easy to repair and takes amazingly stable video. Our complete system weighs in right at 3.5kg and includes a 16ah Li-polly battery, a Pixhawk flight controller, Ublox m8n GPS, Bluetooth telemetry radio, 2 axis Alexmos Gimbal, 500Kv brushless 22 pole motors, 30Amp Simon-k ESC’s, and 15” T-style carbon fiber propellers. 3D printing is actually a good fit for a drone air frame. It has a few unique aspects that you can't get with injection molding. 3D printed objects have a good weight to strength ratio this is due to a honeycomb interior structure. 3D printed objects are built 1 layer at a time allowing for complex shapes that would never release from an injection mold. Most quads on the market have a 15 to 20 minute flight time can barely carry a GoPro and can only reach speeds of 20MPH. We find that this is unacceptable. With such short flight times, we were finding that we were missing some of the best action. We set out to extend that time, little did we know how far we could go. We almost tripled that time without losing performance or stability. We were able to get up to 40 minutes of smooth uninterrupted flight time and video. Our quad can also reach speeds up to 40 MPH and carry a much heaver DSLR camera with little to no modification. The best part our system is that it uses readily available off the shelf electronics that can be replaced easily for that inevitable crash.
