Hello @xuyuan,

Thanks for such a great design and files. I'm doing a remix since I'm building a drone for autonomous missions. My build is ardupilot with raspberry 3 B+ and Navio 2. I was wondering is you could post a picture or another link for the springs since the link you posted is not showing anything because it is out of stock.

Thanks in advance!


I'll post the remix as soon as I get it done!

Very nice remix, it looks like you have added strength to the leg connections at the body, also the speed control mounting in hollowed arm is nice. Would you mind sharing solid files, step or some other native files? I would like to modify length to avoid folding propellers.

Hello I am interested in building this quadcopter, however I own many many 1045 dji props (non folding, but thats ok, I will install and remove each flight) and wanted to know if it will accomodate them. Also, what size battery will it fit inside the quadcopter? What flight times have you seen with your batteries? Thank you. Seems like a great and clean design

  1. Is that a sonar in one of your pictures? (I thought Naza M v2 doesn't support proximity stuff) What's in the 3rd hole? Camera?
  2. Is there space for a gimbal with GoPro?

Excellent design!!


  1. there are holes for sonar and optical flow sensor -- they are for APM/PX4
  2. the space is really limited, barely fit gopro a lone, so gimbal will need longer legs

have you had any crashes with this frame? just wondering how strong it is. also roughly how much filament did you use?
awesome work and thanks for sharing!

well, it crashed during initial indoor test ... and lost one arm.
about the weight:

  • frame: ~350g (heavier than F450 frame which is ~280g)
  • total: ~828g

But you assembled it yet? its working? or not?

Yes, it has flew many times.

I printed it, it needs a bit upgrades, i had the same configuration on my f450, would be apreciated if you share with me the original files to my mail gustavoanuch@hotmail.com
