Hi! Thank you so much! If you lived in my country, I would tell him that "I've had a glass of" :)

Beautiful job. Theory question: Wouldn't ducting be far more efficient than adding more rotors?

Nice! Just a question, could you use 3 horizontal arms but stack the motors (one on top of the arm, the other one underneath?) Just seems like that might be lighter and as strong, if done right (I beam or box beam structures) Just a thought, I want to learn more about quadcopters/hexcopters after I learn more about 3d printers :)

That would definitely make it lighter, and structurally stronger. Give it a shot and let me know if you have questions as you develop your hobbies :-D

Beautiful :D.

Thank you very much for this!

Will print one for sure, could you provide a STL?

I didn't keep any of the .STLs, every time i printed it I just re-exported the .STL from google sketchup. Im in the middle of a major move and all my "toys" have been packed away, and I dont have the means to create the .STL for you.

Its super easy all you need to do is to download the STL plugin for sketchup. Try googling SU2STL.

Sorry that I couldn't be more helpful
