Quadrocopter – First part made on my newly built home made router
30/07/2012 | Filed under: Uncategorized
Finally here are some photos from my latest Quadrocopter build. I designed the frame and all parts for the frame are milled from Carbon fiber og PE-300 with my CNC router.
The lower main plate for my frame. Made from 2mm carbon fiber.
I made everything so I would have enough parts for two Quadrocopters.
The upper main plate for my frame. The tail is for mounting the battery with velcro strap. Made from 2mm carbon fiber.
The clamps for the arms. I made about 100 pieces.
The legs for my copter. Made from 1mm thick carbon fiber. Next time I will make them from 1.5mm thick carbon fiber and also change the design they tend to brake to easily at least when you are learning how to fly this things.
The motor mounts. made from 2mm carbon fiber.
Frame assembled and ready for all the electronics and wires.

Motors assembled to my frame
A lot of wires
All assembled and ready for the first flight, Gopro Hero mounted to the front.
Me and my Quad
The frame has poved to very good except the legs tend to brake very easily. For my next design I will make some minor changes and try to organize the wires better. Also I want to be able to mount better camera to my quad.
I will post video from my latest flights soon. I am still learning the basics of how to edit the videos.
