My next project was to build a new micro quadcopter frame from scratch. I wanted it to be lighter and stronger, with a better layout for my FPV components. I made a scale drawing, using the same motor spacing as a stock Syma X1. In this photo, I have everything taped in place while the glue dries.
I'm using the X1 carbon fiber arms with two pieces of 1/16" birch plywood. The arms have been shortened slightly because they are in more of an "H" configuration. Once the glue dries, the wood frame will be trimmed slightly.
