New Quadrotor Frame February 5, 2011

I recently decided to update my quadrotor’s frame. This frame was designed in SolidWorks and cut from 1/16 inch G10. It has considerations for a GoPro camera, a downward facing ultrasonic sensor, ArduPilot Mega and Arduino (ArduCopter) boards, and much more. I’m pretty happy about how it came out. Let me know what you think in the comments!

Update: This frame was not able to fly. Turns out the motor arms twisted axially too much, even with the cross structure. An I-beam design of the same material thickness would work if I wanted to keep the same theme going. There seem to me a lot stronger, simpler designs on the ‘net though.
