Dragan commented on Alex's blog post Nimbus racing drone – full body carbon fiber monocoque on INDIEGOGO
"Beautiful design, however, your rotor discs are way above the CG of the model. Probably a very fun and slow/sluggish flying end customer product but not a very stick responsive one in FFF.  Other than that, a great idea, stellar execution and…"

"@earthpatrol, you definitely don't want to leave a naked carbon fibre composite just stting in the sun for a long time. The temperature of the part can easily reach over 100 deg C. During flight the airflow should be enough to cool the airframe."

"@Alex maybe let your airframe set in direct sunlight on a warm day and measure the the thermal characteristics internally as a bench mark maybe? 30C doesn't seem like a high enough ambient temperature test and with the external surface being…"

"earthpatrol , Thank you for your questions! There are no issues related to vibrations or heat. The modern ESCs works fine inside the monocoque body, without overheating, it was tested up to +30 C ambient temperatures. It does not stay absolutely…"

earthpatrol commented on Alex's blog post Nimbus racing drone – full body carbon fiber monocoque on INDIEGOGO
"That looks great. Nice design. I'm curious about some of the physical dynamics related to heat and vibration. Do you have data related to a working prototype of your design? Does it stay cool internally? Are you able to isolate vibration to a…"

"Yeah, very cool!  I've been waiting for things like this.Then I saw Indiegogo.  :(  I'll wait.  Sorry, too many drone failures."

Chris Norris commented on Alex's blog post NIMBUS - new carbon fiber monocoque racing drone.
"Wow that's pretty cool. I've often thought about investigating the cost of a custom carbon monocoque but I'd never even considered the reverse vacuum form style approach you've gone with. "

NIMBUS - new carbon fiber monocoque racing drone.

           Building a racing drone is always a compromise between low weight and high strength. Today’s typical racing drone design is based on lightweight and strong material – carbon fiber. Usually, it is an open frame made of a number of flat carbon fiber details, connected with bolts and nuts. Obviously, open electronic components are affected by the environment – sand, dirt, water…See More
