I have had a bad experience with frames printed in PLA. These small brushed motors can get very hot and the frame can't withstand such heat.
I'd rather print it in ABS or PETG or preferably Nylon. Just my three cents. Good design anyway.

You are probably right, i never thought about the heat of the motors. I tried this frame in PETG, but it was way to flexible. I like my frames stiff.
We will see if it becomes a problem. I build it as a 2s quad, that might get hot enough. I made the motormounts very thick, so it should withstand the heat. But we will see.

Thanks for your input, though. Really apreciate it!

Looking cool! I guess you could reduce the top plate thickness a little bit. But 7g is already very light. Is there flight footage? :)

The topplate is actually just 2mm, while the frame is 3mm thick. I might try to go even lower. Flightfootage is not yet there, but will follow soon. My cam & vtx needs repair. And the Weather here is quite bad. Pictures with actual weights will follow soon.

Good luck with the repairs and weather :)
Looking forward to watch this thing fly. I am stoked about your design!

Thank you very much ;-) The repair is almost done.
