Target of project
TL;DR: make F450 portable
I have F450, but it is inconvenient to travel with it. When mavic came out, wow what a great design. It should be possible to clone the design with 3d printing.
Even better, there are design for 3d printing. I wanted to convert my F450 to M450 (mavic in 450 size).
reuse components from F450
However, I had to modify original design to fit components of F450, and also had my own ideas:
try to keep clean (at least from outside)
try to have few parts to print (using support if necessary, that's the job of slicer, not designer) (potentially saving weight)
Remember to come back and post what you've printed as Make.
It's good for the designer and the community (that means you)!
