Leftover Parts Calimero

I had a bunch of old micro parts laying around so I decided to build a little toothpick sized quad on the Calimero Frame.
While I initally designed the Calimero HD frame for the Caddx Turtle V2 this is an adaptation for "regular" toothpick builds without HD capable cam. It doesn't have the slots for the SD Card and different mounts to fit 25.5x25.5 whoop boards and 16x16.
This is the first frame I printed out of SainSmart PETG and I am totally blown away by that stuff! It is kind of soft but also impossible to break (just bends at some points) and because it is kind of soft it seems to dampen vibration! I also used it on a build with the Caddy Turtle HD cam and I got insanely smooth video with literally zero jello.

I get stoaked when I see a new post from you now. I can tell before I even read the name on the post, all it takes is a glance at the thumbnail.
Elegant.
I think it needs a polycarbonate bikiini top for the cam/antenni/vTx. Maybe you could just print it a mowhawk?

Dave,
Printed the ARS v2.0 and the Calimero this week. I'm using your baked PLA method at the moment using some PLA+ as I don't have any PETG.

However I'm really excited to get these built and in the air.

Thanks for your hard work.

P.S. Looking forward to a 3" model...

Thank you! :-) 3" Model is coming soon I hope. I just have too many projects in parallel at the moment haha :-D

Really? I just right now discovered I have to have this frame on some Returner 1106's. If you make a 3" I will HAVE to have that on some FD1408 2400 KV's. I'm trying to stop this obsession with building a new quad every month. Your not helping. =]

very nice simple camera mount. durebility isnt sportive ;-) choosing between active safety - lower weight and better handling or passive safety is allways question about priorities or flying consisdancy. i like possibilities and safety in my activity my hands:
i vote for the pure bikiniless version - more sportive more sexy :-)

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..
