Broken wizards and other bits of stuff.
Just mucking about , I put this together . With a little thought . I hope the pics tell the story , it was really easy.
The heat shrink on the ends keeps everything from sliding about and i feel will give some vibration dampening.
I used a bench grinder to mod the ends of the arms (DONT BREATHE THE DUST).
Use what you have as far as arms .But the key is the whole pattern on the wizards and some other frames.
With these bottom plates i didnt have to drill extra holes only make the 4 in the middle a bit bigger so the end of the arms would slide all the way in.
Have at it!!!!
In the next few days i will be making a moulded canopy for this not printed . Lost wax mould technique with polyester resin and carbon fiber.
if interested in seeing the process let me know.
Update upgrade.
Finally got a replacement stack to replace the faulty all in one i originally used.
Mamba 40 amp , are they good . seems ok so far. only had light for one pack so far BF 4.004 .
Clean video without the cap . Just remembered i forgot to install it . Must do that.

So how does she fly? Do you get any noticable flight characteristics from the arms? Does it wobble?

dude that looks sick, especially the 'stitches'! your antenna placement looks pretty dodgy ngl, but apart from that, nice. considering custom cnc arms? the holes of the nighthawk x5 arms (idk they look like it) for the old motor mount is a bit of a weak spot probably

yes the antenna is dodg but i was keen to fly it. the arms are nighthawk 6 and the motor mounts will be revised.
Made with shit from the bin.

oh IC, let us know how that works out (I have spare arms (also from a nighthawk), might give something like this a go)

AirbladeUAV has done it again and this time they've brought long range to the 5" class! Based on the popular Transformer Mini, the new Transformer 5" Ultralight adopts a lot of the same design philosophies with larger props and more payload capacity. It can fly upwards of 20 minutes on a 4 cell Li-Ion battery pack and in ideal conditions it's got a range of over 4 to 5 miles. In this guide I'll walk..

With the release of the DJI FPV Drone cinematic FPV has become a lot more accessible, but you certainly don't want to crash a $750 drone! The QAV-CINE Freybott is a compact, lightweight cinematic FPV drone that can take a hit and keep going. It's a lot safer to fly indoors and around people. With a naked GoPro or the SMO 4k you can capture some great stabilized footage. In this guide I'll show you..
