Hi guy is it possible to get the dxf file of the Sidewipe for unbreabklable 20x20 and the Rest with 20x20mm in dxf file ? Thanks

looks cool. but what 20x20 FC uses m3 hardware?
would love to see a version for 16x16 stacks too. ;)

Are you going to print it ?
16x16mm version added !

Wow. Fast.
Printing now.
(in cura it looked like the 4 little diamond cutouts at the center are not quite square, but no biggie.)
edit. : also thinking it might be a stronger part if you rotate the motor mounting holes 45*. -and actually since most people generally use only 2 screws per motor, maybe just use 2 holes in line with center axis.

I don't think the diamond cutouts are centered. There is a front and back to the original design to give more space for the cam / piggyback vtx. It's pretty tight...

M3 is there because there are still a decent number of 20x20 stacks using M3 and M2 stack fits in M3 holes without modification or special hardware.

Plenty of M3 options still out there in the 20x20 range:
Omnibus F3 nano uses M3 (my preferred).
DYS Mini
Matek Mini
Piko F4
CL Racing F4 - Mini

If you rotate the motor mount like that motor wires will stick out to the side and boring holes down the length of the arm will compromise it's strength a lot.

Ok i'll try to improve it in the future
Btw this is not my original idea, this is just remix with few upgrades of original sidewipe frame :)

Awesome!! Yeah i was originally going to use the M3 holes on the motor arms to attach more motor protection / a ring like bumper design but haven’t found the time... thanks for expanding on my work! Look forward to seeing how it turns out.
