3D printed racing drone, part 1

I've been pretty busy last 2 weeks. Among other things, I've started to design 3D printed racing drone frame. I'm fully aware there are plenty designs available on Thingiverse, but almost all of them forgets that plastic filament is not carbon fiber laminate and what works well with carbon, will fail with filament. So, I came up with this:

3D Printed Racing Drone

3D Printed Racing Drone

  • suitable to 220x and 230x motors with 19x16mm hole spacing
  • fits PCB and 36x36mm flight controller (30.5mm hole spacing)
  • size: 220mm motor to motor (diagonal)
  • fits "standard size" FPV camera

It is heavy for sure. It has thick arms and a lot of M3 nuts and bolts connecting all the parts together. I hope it will be enough to survive at least some beating… First flight in a few weeks since I'm still waiting for motors.
