Very nice! Is that a commercial frame or a custom one? I like the looks of it. Too bad the quad ate it, keeping my fingers crossed here (no crashes... yet).

how did you get all black motors?

Very nice.

Who makes the motors you are using?

Looks great. Very neat. Very stealthy with the all black components.

I like the motor mounts that clamps around the carbon tube on both sides of the motor. Did you machine these yourself?

Wooden props? - Any specific reason for this?

it is probably the heavy hexa from www.sexycopter.com

The price of the heavy hexa at quadframe.com is amazing.,, the best hexa frame in the market in terms of value for money if you ask me.. I'm getting one for myself!

Yep, definitely a Quadframe SIXcopter. Also check out Rusty's UAP1 frame. Doesn't look quite as cool but is more versatile. Both are dope and share a very similar design of laser cut G10, carbon booms and boom blocks.

Oliver, they are cut with a CNC router or at least the UAP1 is. Laser cutting doesn't work so good with G10. I agree that they are both great frames!
