It’s been a while, but for a long time I had the idea to build an FPV Race Copter myself. The frame should be designed in CAD and 3D printed. The frame is made of one piece and has already integrated the damper mounts for the Pixhawk mini. The center of gravity is pretty accurate in the middle so that we can assume very good flight characteristics. The area of application should be fast FPV flights and Acrobatic. A mission should also be possible so as not to be unlearned.
For the Design i used 3D Freecad an excellent CAD program (see top image)
The Frame’s Print duration is about 7h, in the Picture one of the early stages, later on i did some improvement.
Lets assembly, here the Frame
The Power Distribution Board / Pixhawk mini mount and surrounding
Build / Prototyp checking every function and prepare for first flight
The First Test flight was very good, here comparision to a DJI Tello
The DJI Tello ist recording the Test Flight in the Backyard
