Build now updated with ball plungers which are 6mm wide x 7mm depth.  I purchased mine off eBay. They are part number GN614-6KD ( http://r.ebay.com/7qtSCD )

UPDATED TO 3.1 F3 .. 24th Feb 2017 - Improved top plates

(http://diyrc.co.uk/images/twins.jpg)

Some details on the components used.

Copy Mavic props 8330 off eBay - £9 (hopefully I can print an adaptor plate)
(http://diyrc.co.uk/images/b1.jpg)

WS2812B 2*2 4-Bit Full Color 5050 RGB LED off eBay - £2.50 (some indicator led's for the back I hope depending on the FC)
(http://diyrc.co.uk/images/b2.jpg)


Multistar LiHV High Capacity 3000mAh 3S off Hobbyking - £14.79  (got two of these..)
(http://diyrc.co.uk/images/b3.jpg)

Black Widow 2208 1200KV With Built-In ESC off Hobbyking - £12.21 each (on offer as these are V1 and V2 are now out.. however I think they will be fine.)  I went for these because of the built in ESC as space will be tight and they will help with any possible heat issues. I might however need to widen the holes in the legs... we shall see. (was 1800kv but swapped to 1200kv)
(http://diyrc.co.uk/images/b4.jpg)

Deluxe SP Racing F3 Flight Controller 10DOF Integrated OSD - £22.00 from Amazon UK - http://amzn.eu/7hBUcDL

The build is quote straight forward, not that many body components really. I've posted some photos below which should help. :-)

Thanks,

First, I would print all the parts out. I've started to swap over to ABS as it's a little more flexible and I seem to be getting a better finish.

The nose / rear feet should be in black, the rest in dark grey. OR whatever you fancy :-)  Most parts I've printed in 30%.. but the legs I'm now up to 70% for strength.

The front feet need to be added before the motors, you also need to pin them with a bit of 1.75mm filament to stop them twisting.
(http://diyrc.co.uk/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=159.0;attach=990;image)

I've also used a bit of filament to make a hinge for the catch at the back.
(http://diyrc.co.uk/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=159.0;attach=936;image)

To make the LED window I've cut up an old milk container and doubled up on the plastic, you can just slot these into place.
(http://diyrc.co.uk/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=159.0;attach=986;image)

When fitting the motors I cut the small black wire as this isn't needed. The motors I am using have built in ESC's  I needed to extend the servo signal wire so it reached the FC at the front.
(http://diyrc.co.uk/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=159.0;attach=1003;image)

I also extended the power cables in the front legs. I used some 20AWG Silicone Wire which should be thick enough for the amps.. ( I hope ).. :-)
(http://diyrc.co.uk/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=159.0;attach=1036;image)

The nose holds the GPS and RX.. there are two tiny holes to pass the rx wires down either side. You can see this in the above photo. 

Once all the bits are in you cover everything up with a nice battery base..
(http://diyrc.co.uk/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=159.0;attach=1040;image)

... then enjoy

I'm still working on mine, so please have a look at my build diary as well as others on here.

Very nice Steve, you will make another version for Nasa M Lite? You didn't like que 6 batteries with 6000mah?


Thanks for all.

When you have a feedback for the all drone fly tell us please.

Thanks

And keep the good work.

Many thanks for your comments. I should get the naza m lite finished this weekend. I've not looked at the 6 batteries yet.

Cheers

Title: Mavic Clone battery
Post by: fultonmartin on February 18, 2017, 09:07:55 PM
I'm wondering about the battery capacity--the Multistar are 10C, 20 burst, so you can draw 30 amps constant. Is that enough? The Black Widows have 18 Amp ESCs--not going to be WFO all the time, but...
Title: Re: Mavic Clone STL Files Version 3.0 F3
Post by: CdRsKuLL on February 18, 2017, 10:27:52 PM
Hi Fultonmartin,

Welcome to the forums. Yes you're right 30 amp continuous.. 60 amp burst.  Honest answer is I'm not sure.  I picked the battery as it was the highest capacity for the smallest size. The motors I do think are slightly over spec'd I think. The thrust they can deliver from what I've read is alot more than needed really. I do feel that they can be dailed back a bit on the FC max throttle setting.

Time will tell :-). Any help or advice on this would be most helpful, I'm defo not an expert at this at all! 

Steve
Title: Re: Mavic Clone STL Files Version 3.0 F3
Post by: fultonmartin on February 19, 2017, 03:33:46 PM
Guess I'll get one of the Multistars, as well as a Turnigy 2200mAh 3S 30C, which is almost exactly the same physical size.

Great job CDR have over half of version 3 printed at .20 layer height in PLA. Will post pictures in build thread. Will print a 2nd in PETG. Parts are coming out nice.

 Also Donated for your efforts. Thanks

Post by: CdRsKuLL on February 21, 2017, 06:25:15 PM
Thanks Phospherus for the kind comments and the donation :-) I'm saving up for a new transmitter at the moment so it will go towards that.. or a set of motors for another mavic build, not sure which yet :-)

I've added you a title to the forum of Elite DIY RC Supporter.. :-)  It's a bit like a knighthood..  Arise Sir Phospherus.. lol

Thanks again.

Hopefully the Naza verson will be finished soon.. I think I've nearly done but want to test print the base / middle / rear foot / nose first.

Post by: triafgg on February 21, 2017, 06:39:07 PM
Hi Steve

Do you think a Naza M V2 will fit in there?
Is it still possible to flash the Lite to V2 specs, I heard that the new ones it wasn't possible, also does it do the same as a V2 when flashed or do you lose some options?

Cheers

Tony
Title: Re: Mavic Clone STL Files Version 3.0 F3
Post by: Phospherus on February 21, 2017, 07:23:17 PM
 Functions just like a V2. Not sure on the flashing of the newer stock on the Naza M.
Title: Re: Mavic Clone STL Files Version 3.0 F3
Post by: CdRsKuLL on February 21, 2017, 07:54:32 PM
Hi Trafgg, not sure about a new one. The version I got was secondhand for £40. Although I had a hell of a time getting the DJI drivers to install on windows 10. I had to in the end boot up in test mode and install them as they are not digitally signed :-(

Windows 7 managed to install them first time... just a heads up. There was a video on youtube showing you how to install the drivers which I followed, after that it flashed great. I would be happy to help if your struggling now I've got everything installed.

LED holder finished.. just got to print it all out now :-)  Then only the nose gps to do.. then release :-)

Oh.. and you should be able to program it when its installed as I've left a cut out for the usb.. :-)

Post by: jmta94 on February 21, 2017, 08:11:33 PM
Starting to print my copy out at the moment, and plan on buying the parts soon. Anyone put any thought into using 4 in 1 escs, and also maybe using 2212 sized motors? Can pick up a 4 in 1 esc such as this (http://www.banggood.com/Racerstar-RS20Ax4-20A-4-in-1-Blheli_S-Opto-ESC-2-4S-Support-Oneshot42-Multishot-for-FPV-Racer-p-1068210.html?rmmds=search) for fairly cheap. 2212 motors by the same company can be bought fairly cheaply too. Was also hoping to use a pixhawk on my build which should make GPS stuff easier, also hoping to be able to mount my gimbal from the same site (http://www.banggood.com/FPV-2-Axis-Brushless-Gimbal-With-Controller-For-DJI-Phantom-GoPro-3-p-908068.html?rmmds=search).

EDIT: I know you've designed this with a naze/spf3racing in mind but the pixhawk has the same sized mount holes internally meaning if its decased with a bit of editing it looks like it should be possible.

Stay tuned :-) !!! Goooood jooob ;-)
Title: Re: Mavic Clone STL Files Version 3.0 F3
Post by: triafgg on February 21, 2017, 09:31:46 PM

I bought those racerstar 2212 motors, they fit OK, and look cool being red. I also bought 4 small ESC but couldn't fit them and the battery in the shell, maybe that 4 in 1 ESC/PDB would be a good way to go. You could perhaps mount it vertically at the front. Horizontally stacked standard PDB and FC won't fit with a 2200 battery.

That gimbal weighs 230g, surely that would mess with the COG too much.
Title: Re: Mavic Clone STL Files Version 3.0 F3
Post by: jmta94 on February 21, 2017, 09:50:06 PM
From my experience COG isn't anywhere near as important as it is with fixed wing aircraft, might not be quite as efficient but still works. Would probably take the thing apart and 3d print something a bit different which would hopefully get rid of a bit of the weight.
Title: Re: Mavic Clone STL Files Version 3.0 F3
Post by: CdRsKuLL on February 21, 2017, 09:57:32 PM
Hi Jmta94,  Welcomes to the forums fella :-)  That gimbal is massive.. its nearly as big as the mavic. I have one somewhere I purchsased for my 450 I built a few years ago. I'll see if I can dig it out and grab a photo for you.

I'm still looking for a gimbal, not crossed that bridge yet as I wanted to get it flying first.. hoping tomorrow might be the day, its been raining all day today sadly.


The last few days I've been obsessed with camcorders. I've now purchased 3 in so many days!  Each time going up in value.. so I will sell the first two for a profit I'm hoping which should help pay for the 4k one I've ended up just getting.. Expect some decent build videos now! Told the wife it's for the holiday to Florida in April.. shhhhhh

There is a 2 axis gimbal on thingiverse that has been designed for a mavic, or rather a " foldable drone frame" Is it okay to post links here? I'll post a link to it and see what ya'll think of it, if it will fit or not.
Title: Re: Mavic Clone STL Files Version 3.0 F3
Post by: jmta94 on February 21, 2017, 10:12:33 PM
Damn hadn't put 2 and 2 together and realised that the gimbal was that big and the mavic so small. Was hoping to mount my old go pro but suspecting a session would be a better match to something this size, was surprised to see the session for £150 in argos. Looking forward to the build videos, even if I can't get a use for one flying would still like to build one up as a model.

Suspect this is the one (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2037525) Looks good and adaptable, taking the sensor out of a runcam and moving the main system out of the gimbal is an interesting idea.

Righty o. I found this mini gimbal a few days ago, it is not mine, I am just posting to get ya'll's thoughts on it. It may work with your design and it may not. There is also a video of it working on his foldable drone frame.

So what is the recommended GPS everyone is going with, I went originally with the Super Mini NZ GPS that was in the first post, but looking at other threads and rebuilds, it looks like it has been re-designed for a puck now?  Just trying to get parts together.  I am sure what I ordered won't go to waste, just want to make sure I get the proper stuff for this build.  Also do we have a link for the Power Distribution board that you are recommending?  Want to make sure to get the proper one. 

Thanks,

Chad

Hi Chad,

I went with the recommended GPS. I bought this one (https://aliexpress.com/item/Ultra-Small-Ublox-7-Series-Mini-GPS-OP-NZ-GPS-for-OPLink-CC3D-Revolution-Naze32-Flip32/32709270852.html).
And this here (https://aliexpress.com/item/DALRC-Mini-Power-Distribution-Board-With-5V-BEC-LED-Lights-For-FPV-Multicopter/32591477079.html) is the power distribution board I went with.

Thanks, what I ordered for the GPS as well, just didn't know if the STL's changed the design.  I haven't printed anything yet till things are for sure set and I get all my parts in.  Thanks for the links.  I will get the PDB on order.
Title: Re: Mavic Clone STL Files Version 3.1 F3
Post by: CdRsKuLL on March 03, 2017, 08:04:51 PM
Hi Hoochster, I'm still using that :-) The other STL's (Naza build) are for the DJI Naza flight controller which comes with its own LED / GPS / BEC (power board).. hence the different design for that.

I'm still concentrating on the F3 build at the moment. Going to test again this weekend if the weathers good. The PIDS on the FC were set far to high when I tried last week. I'll share all the values and how I set it all up in the build video I'll be doing.

I've got another project to finish which I need to get done by the end of April.. so not long and that's lots of work!

That makes more sense, thanks for clarifying my confusion there haha.  See, even more reason to just go with the Pixracer and call it a day! ;)  LOL 

And ya, looking forward to full setup information etc if you are able to provide.  I have been out of the hobby for so long that I am gonna have to brush up on how to do all this again heh.  I think I have some kits sitting in a box and some Naze32 FC's I might just have to play with just to brush up my memory heh.  Been way too long since I have flown, gotta stop that.

I've been looking for 3 axis gimbals that would fit beneath the Mavic Clone, but with the limited space, the options seem to be very slim.
The only one I've found that MIGHT fit (I'm not even sure) is this one:

(https://www.readymaderc.com/store/bmz_cache/a/add7749e521e1c3fa79cc88685c35f8c.image.680x550.png)

Thanks, ya I typically order spares of everything to have on hand.  Just in case I want to build 2 heh.  I have actually decided to start printing ha.  I might try and pick up a Naza M Lite if I can and then will try and build another once you get the Pixracer as well.  Won't hurt to have 2 going! ;)  Will still be cheaper than buying a full blown Mavic by far haha.

OMG, don't let it happen again!  Heh j/k, I only started printing the fronts, so I should be ok heh.  I will re-download and print the backs heh.  And await the Naza files tomorrow to print the Base and Middle.  I think the Plungers I found on Amazon will work, just will be a lot more expensive.  Still waiting word on if that eBay supplier will ship to the States.  But the ones on Amazon are 6mm wide by 7mm long, so should be fine, just have a Steel ball, so might be heavier.

This is what I ordered, so here's hoping.  They have diff p/n's on the site, but going by the site, the only 6mm ones they show all have 7mm length.  And according to the length in desc, it is so should match up.  And I ended up ordering all plastic this next go round, so should be similar. 

https://www.amazon.com/Kipp-PFP-108-All-Plastic-Push-Fit-Diameter/dp/B002JJ8VHY/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1489013355&sr=8-3&keywords=kipp+push-fit+plunger+6mm

Here's the specs from their site:

http://www.kippusa.com/us/en/Products/Spring-Plungers/Push-Fit-Plungers/K0334-Spring-Plungerspush-fit-plastic.html?search_keywords=3071-206

So hopefully they are very similar overall.  Just much more expensive haha.  I ordered 20 of them and with shipping was $30 something US.

For those looking for the plungers that CDR is using, I talked with the seller he purchased them from and he is willing to ship to the US for 5 GBP, he supposedly made a new listing for this, but it doesn't seem to work, so you might need to just contact him and he will create you a PayPal invoice for it, total price is 15 GBP which is around $18 US.  Which is not bad at all for 50 units compared to what I paid for 20 units of the others I ordered for around $20 or so.

Saw this project and just knew i had to print it...

Looks like the plungers are going to be a sticking point for a few of us now as the ebay listing has ended and the seller does not appear to have any more for sale.
There are listings for steel 5mm but all appear to be from hong kong

Are there alternates or will the design change as i would like to know before i commit to printing the legs and body.
Title: Re: Mavic Clone STL Files Version 4.0 F3
Post by: triafgg on March 25, 2017, 10:08:27 AM
You could print off some small plugs the same dimensions as the plungers and use those to build the kit whilst you wait. Obviously you wouldn't be able to fold it it up but at least you know the legs are firm and won't fold up in-flight.

6mm dia base, 7mm high and a smaller top piece 4.6mm dia, 2.8mm high. You can then replace when the plungers arrive.

You could print off some small plugs the same dimensions as the plungers and use those to build the kit whilst you wait. Obviously you wouldn't be able to fold it it up but at least you know the legs are firm and won't fold up in-flight.

6mm dia base, 7mm high and a smaller top piece 4.6mm dia, 2.8mm high. You can then replace when the plungers arrive.

good idea ...

Looking at the Spring action to legs thread it looks like 4.1 may be dropping soon with a second plunger per leg..

I have same problem. Found a place in uk which has them for £0.75 inc vat but postage extra.
https://www.berger-tools.co.uk/PartCode/GN614-6-KD/
Was going to ask if anyone in UK has some they would sell before getting some from there.
Also how does the camera gimbal fit. Mine seems too big no matter how I try to fit it.
Anyone have pics?

I have sent a message to the eBay UK guy that was selling them to see if he has a source on those that he was selling, to see if he can get any more.  He even was able to ship me some to the US.  So if so that is obviously the cheapest route. 

For  those in the US, this is an alternative, I ordered these, they don't show a picture, but they are for sure good:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002JJ8VHY/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I just highly recommend ordering a good handful, you only pay shipping once, so I ordered 20 when I ordered mine. 

I will look to see if there is any source for the UK that I can find.  Hopefully that UK seller will reply back with some good news.

I messaged him about a week ago, no response so far.
As I'm in UK may have to get those I listed. Bit expensive though, especially if we now need 2 per arm.
Have sorted gimbal out just needed a bit more brute force, which I'm good at..

FlyKaiser, Willkommen to the site; Everything looks fine, except that there is only two feet at the front of the Mavic and one small support at rear which does the function of a foot.
Please watch all the pictures several times and see that there are only two feet attached to the front arms under the motors. The arms of the rear have not feet. However, it doesn't cause any harm to have two spare feet in case you eventually happen to crash it. ha, ha,

Thanks BioEthical for your welcome. I will open my eyes wide and see all the details. Thanks!

Searching for the plungers, found some made by Kipp at Fastenal (https://www.fastenal.com/products/details/3423309?term=m6+plastic+spring+ball+plunger). These have stainless steel balls and Fastenal doesn't seem to have all plastic ones, which I believe would damage the arms long term. I guess I'll continue looking for the all plastic ones here in Canada.

Amazing work! You made the best clone on the net.

I'm currently building a F550 Hexa. After complete, will donate, download, print and build one for myself.

By the way, what is your plan for the 3 axis gimbal? Any suggestion?

Also, do you think it will fit APM 3.1 or MiniPix?

Looking forward for better and better version in near future...

Have a great day to all of you here.

Hi Lesliez, Welcome to the forum. Right now I'm working with APM 2.8 and Mission planner. it should work without sonar due to the size of the board. I'm in the phase of assembling.  I'm waiting for the 3.1 and a small GPS. I was told that APM 3.1 works with sonar. There is not too much info on the net regarding that but we are eager to experiment and report in our diaries, so be in touch. and start printing the smallest part first and get addicted. lol.

Hi thanks. Me too is trying to get more info about sonar. You want it for collision detection?

For the 3D gimbal, I guess this will be a good one.

Product link: https://www.fasttech.com/product/5494000-hmg-sjm10-3-axis-fpv-brushless-gimbal-for-sjcam

I checked SJCAM M10+ on Youtube, it can handle 2k recording very well.

The 3D gimbal and the camera both are very reasonable in price tag.

Hi folks,
I figured I would make my first post already.

I printed a Mavic v2.1 some time ago and took my time getting hardware for it.
I ended up getting this $105 Pixracer Autopilot Xracer FMU V4 Flight Control + M8N GPS from eBay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/182255035160

For motors I went with the BLACK WIDOW 2204 1900KV WITH BUILT-IN ESC CW from hobbyking for $80. It is worth noting that I used a spare naze32 flight controller flashed with betaflight firmware to connect the motors to. Using this surrogate flight controller I used blheli pass through to update the blheli version and reverse two of the motors per the ardupilot motor direction prior to plugging them into the pix racer.

The flight controller works great with ardupilot setup on it. I have been using the wifi module it comes with for tuning via my phone and computer. I tried flying it on my 4s race packs since they were what I had available at the time of completion, but it had lots of bad vibrations and the motors got rather hot. I figure this is really meant to stick with 13v max batteries.

The only 3s batteries I have right now are little 850 mah racing packs which I have used for initial tuning of this build. As you can imagine its flight time is not great on such small packs, so I will be waiting for my 3000mah HV packs from hobbyking before going through the full autotune process.

So far very happy with the build and its functionality. I do not have sonar set up yet but that is my next part of this build while I wait for batteries. The pixracer should integrate the sensor very easily as it has been in the arducopter project for years.

I can take more detailed pictures of my build if you are interested in seeing how I wired and mounted stuff.

Hi there,

I like the props, what size/pitch are they?

I have built the same but I have the GPS under the nose. If you cut the middle out of the GPS/receiver piece and keep the LED holders and screw mounts you can sit the GPS puck on top of the gimbal holder, it fits nicely under there, see picture. The receiver then sits at the side of the battery.

Post by: rubiksman on March 27, 2017, 06:10:47 PM
Those pink props are some HQ clones that are 5045 tripple blade. I used them for the 4s test, but will be switching out for the 7330 folding props when I get them. I hope that I can simply cut off the quick release pieces from those props and drill out the center hole to be 5mm. I plan on hard mounting them to the motors with some locknuts.

Title: Re: Mavic Clone STL Files Version 4.0 F3
Post by: rubiksman on March 27, 2017, 06:13:30 PM
Another difference with my build is that I put the flight controller in the cavity above the gimbal mounting hole, so I have lots of free room inside the frame as I only have a thin PDB and current sensor mounted inside at the bottom.
Ill measure out and see exactly the area I have for battery mounting as I might be able to fit a larger battery.


Are there any significant changes to the design from v2.1 to the current version other than the arm locking ball-socket thing?

welcome to the forums. I'm going with the VTX03 for the vtx. I got mine off eBay but Banggood also sell them. link - http://www.banggood.com/Eachine-VTX03-Super-Mini-5_8G-72CH-025mW50mw200mW-Switchable-FPV-Transmitter-p-1114206.html

Not sure where it's going but it is really small so we shouldnt have a problem finding somewhere.  As for the plungers if you do a search for ball plunger 6mm (they are 7mm depth) you should be able to find something.  The ones I've used have a part number - 'gn 614-6-kd'  so you could try a search for them. 

Let me know how you get on.

Being the thrifty sort of bloke I am I was able to find 6mm ball plungers, however what sticks in my throat is the price...

The original ebay link you posted was a pack of 50 for £10 now this I could live with as it allows me to build several models so value for money, the rest of the listings on ebay are charging around £6 for 5 !!

I have messaged the original seller but alas I don't think he's answering.

Alibaba can provide them but only in bulk, plus shipping this wouldn't be cost effective too (1000 is a little too many  ;) )

I'm currently not at the assembly stage yet as I'm struggling to print the parts without warpage so this will give me time to search further.

still loving this build though and I'm looking forward to fliying it.

Welcome my friend, for the states, your best bet I have found is from Amazon so far, I ordered mine from here:

Kipp PFP-108 All-Plastic Push-Fit Plunger A=.236 (6mm) Diameter, B=.276 Long
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002JJ8VHY/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I would order a good handful to save on shipping, that is where they get ya.  I ordered 20, since they only charge you shipping once.  At $1.18/ea and $9.25 for shipping.  You might be able to place an order directly from the manufacturer, but it seemed like it was going to have to be mass produced that way and take longer.  This just seemed the easiest way to accomplish it.

Good luck.

I've become intrested in the project recently after I got my first printer, and I've been trying to compile a build list. What kind of motors do most people use? I see both 2208 1200kv and 2212 1000kv on hobbyking and I'm not sure which one would be better, I'm not to concerned about power other than being able to carry one of the small gimbals you guys have been working on and having good flight time.
Title: Re: Mavic Clone STL Files Version 4.0 F3
Post by: triafgg on April 14, 2017, 06:17:05 PM
Hi Monroezabaleta

Welcome to the forum.

I am using the 2212 1000kv but I have scaled up the design slightly to fit 10" props and get around 20 mins flight time on a 4000Mah pack.

There are many builds on here using 2208/2212 with 1000,1200 and 1800kv motors. With the high kv motors you can run the smaller props. If you are planning to use gimbal/camera then maybe the lower kv would be better as it will handle the higher load better.

Lots of helpful people on here and I'm sure they will add their experiences.
Title: Re: Mavic Clone STL Files Version 4.0 F3
Post by: Monroezabaleta on April 14, 2017, 08:02:35 PM
Thank you for the info, 20 mins of flight time is pretty good for 10in props, how exactly did you scale up the design? Using your silicer and just different sized hardware or did you have to edit the CAD files? I was looking at 8in props but if 10in can manage 20 mins I'd much rather prefer that, also I'd assume scaling up left you more space inside for the battery and other components, are you running an F3 FC, a Pixhwak or a Naza? I haven't been able to decide between the three.

I'm using a Naza M V2, all stock settings.

I think Naza is the easiest, you just put it in and it works, wiring is easy as well, just three wires for PMU, FC and GPS and then motors and FC.

Yes I use simplify3d so just scaled it up 10% which is how I got a 4000mah battery in.
Title: Re: Mavic Clone STL Files Version 4.0 F3
Post by: Monroezabaleta on April 14, 2017, 09:10:07 PM
Is there one 4000mah that fits well? and you didn't have to make any other modifications to get it to work? Also on the FC, I've heard in the past that a Naza m lite could be reflashed/modded to have all the features of a Naza m 2, is that still possible?
Title: Re: Mavic Clone STL Files Version 4.0 F3
Post by: triafgg on April 14, 2017, 09:50:50 PM
Yes the Multistar 4000mah is not much bigger than the 3000mah and fits OK by scaling up a bit.

https://hobbyking.com/en_us/multistar-high-capacity-3s-4000mah-multi-rotor-lipo-pack.html

You can flash the Naza lite version but have to be careful with updates. Instructions and links are on here.

Post by: triafgg on April 16, 2017, 11:20:41 AM
Hi

You can't just scale up one piece or the holes won't line up. you need to scale all parts the same. You can scale the middle on the X axis only but you also then have to scale the front arms the same or they won't fit, or add a washer/spacer to take up the difference. This would give you a taller battery compartment but not wider.

I think you would need to scale up the catch as well.

Now updated to 4.1 F3..

I've added double plungers to the front legs.. BUT to try and share common parts with the Naza I've updated the following

Front Top
Nose
Middle
Gimbal holder

This then makes all these parts the same as the Naza build.. :-)

Have fun!

Doesn't really look much different other than the screws at the front are slightly wider apart. See pics below.  It just seemed silly having different parts for both designs. Made it twice as hard to update each one. Now its just a couple of different parts :-)

Just check what min props for motor
1000kv would require biger props it may run fine but just check it to be sure

Lover KV higher torque bigger props more thrust

ow.. yes it has.. I might need to take a look later and redo it. I generated the STL from the part but we then had a power cut so didnt save the part so will need to do it again.  Prob get to this tomorrow night.. bit knackered tonight as been up early and just got in from driving for 7 hours.

That's ok buddy, I thought I may have had a distorted print until I printed the second one 😀

BTW kudos for the antenna guide channels on that nose part, I was at a loss of what to do with them until I noticed the small holes, that my friend is a good design 👌

I made a small donation to show my appreciation, keep those designs coming 😀

Perhaps I missed something in the thread but what's the difference between "base middle" and "middle" in the 4.1 update?  Also, why the split middle files?

Title: Re: Mavic Clone STL Files Version 4.1 F3
Post by: BulletMag on May 01, 2017, 04:17:05 PM
If you want the modified middle then just use the base middle.
The split parts are for those users with a smaller print bed size
Title: Re: Mavic Clone STL Files Version 4.1 F3
Post by: triafgg on May 01, 2017, 04:43:55 PM
I've just reprinted mine using the split middle even though I can print the middle in one piece, my logic is that if you break a rear arm, or have a rear motor fail you have to disassemble the whole thing to replace but using the split middle you can remove the rear arms by just taking off the back piece without disturbing the front arms.

I'm having trouble with the rear latch/catch not fitting to the rear top plate.  Anyone else?  It seems to work ok if I slide the plate back (with the nose off) about 2-3mm..  Is this the nose issue mentioned above? 
Title: Re: Mavic Clone STL Files Version 4.1 F3
Post by: BulletMag on May 09, 2017, 09:07:52 PM
I ran into the same issue,
I ended up using some needle files on the latch to get it to engage correctly
Title: Re: Mavic Clone STL Files Version 4.1 F3
Post by: triafgg on May 09, 2017, 09:15:51 PM
I had trouble with that as well but found a way round it, I'll try and explain. latch the lid at a 45 degree angle up and then drop it down with the locating lugs at the front back a bit from it's locked location and then press down on the front of the battery lid and slide the lugs under the front piece. This stops the catch from wearing and also is a lot easier than trying to force the catch on when the top is fully located.

Hope that's clear.

Hello everyone, I plan on starting a build log soon, (I really like the orange/black color scheme) but have a couple questions first....

Although I have built my own Quads before, (not 3d printed though!) I'm still pretty weak on motors / props.
the Black widows 2208 1200KV motors seem to be sold out everywhere, and I'm not sure what to get instead.
I do see some Black widows 2208 1800KV for around $15 a pop, is that higher KV still going to work well with the size of props that we use on this size of quad?  (probably 83xx? )

Second question:  Materials.
I've seen very little mention of what materials you guys are printing these in.  Does PLA work, or is ABS / PETG / etc pretty much required?  I've pretty much only printed PLA thus far, but I do have a heated bed, so I should be able to do ABS if it's significantly better, even though I do not have an enclosure for my printer.

I've printed all the parts, now I needs the hardware.  How many ball plungers do i actually need?  Looks like 6, is that right? 

What hardware do i need, like what screws/nuts/etc, and what lengths and sizes?

I thought I saw somebody mention using 2212 motors on this.  Those are a lot easier to come by in like 1000kv-ish than the 2208's originally specc'ed.  How did using 2212 motors work out? 

Thanks in advance guys :-)

The latest design actually uses 10 ball plungers, unless I'm missing something...

Hi all,

I'm still new to the flying world. I've have two prebuilt models and decided to make my own now. I figured it would be a great way for me to also get better acquainted with my 3D printer. Right now I'm halfway on the printing process and sourcing the electronics.

Are there build instructions for after I'm done printing? Also, this being my first DIY RC. How's the electronics setup (other than the wiring diagram)?

Thanks ahead for any and all assistance.

Post by: bazyl78 on June 16, 2017, 08:12:57 AM
I'm not using plungers cause they are to weak and not really keeping arms. Instead I use 6mm diameter (0.8 mm wire) spring cut to put it inside the holes for plungers. On top of it I put 5.5 or 6mm metal ball (from bearings). It is quite difficult to mount it but keeps arms better due to very strong spring.

Hola Alfonso,

Mi Mavic ya ha volado y sin los plungers, solo aprete un poco las patas con washers o rondanas para los tornillos. En realidad concentre mi atencion en hacerlo volar y no gaste mucha energia ni dinero en los plungers, bueno, por el momento.

Hi CdRsKuLL and all the people, I've been following you for many months, so I decide to build my mavic. I bought all the electronics and I just printed all the parts, I bought (I think it is a clone) sp racing f3 deluxe, everything works except the HC-SR04 sonar.

Thanks for the work you have put into this Project and offering it freely to the community. I am also going to build a Mavic clone. But I have questions regarding the flying time, Motors, props and gimbal support.

1.) How long does the Mavic Clone fly with one battery charge? Did you test high capacity 18650 Cells with your mavic?

2.) The BlackWidow Motors are not available anymore so I wanted to search for an equivalent. Could you reccomend any motors for this build? Is it possible to fit 4 separate ESCs into the Enclosure? I'm asking because most of the motors are without integrated ESCs.

3.) Do you have any problems with the Foldable Mavic Clone Props? Would you recommend the clone Mavic props or would you rather consider different foldable props?

4.) Is the Mavic Case 4.1 F3 you have build ment for any Camera-Gimbal attachment?


Thank you in advance. I'm a little bit psyched building it! ;-)

Have a look on the download section and you should find some iges files. I think they are a version behind but from memory the bottom hasn't changed so you should be able to import that into Solidworks :-)

Thank you for the quick reply CdRsKuLL, very helpful.

I was wondering if someone knows if there are any prop adapters for 5mm motor shaft and 3mm bore shaft for the mavic props (8330). I bought the "Racestar BR2205 2300KV" motors which are with 5mm shaft.
All adapters i could find are up sizing, but cant seem to find downsizing 5mm to 3mm. If anyone has any information on the matter please share.
Has anyone lucked out making the 3mm hole of the props to 5mm lets say?

Sorry if i am spamming in the wrong topic, CdRsKuLL, feel free to move my post if you find it necessary.

On Quadcopters (generally on Multicopters) the Motors need to rotate in specific directions.

IF you have your Quadcopter which looks like a X this is how the motors need to rotate!

What screws are used for the drone, for example to fix the arms/legs? The rear arms can be fix using m3 nuts and bolts but at the front is no space for the nuts.

CdRsKuLL, what software did you use to design the Mavic Clone?  Would you be willing to share the original files?  I am asking because I want to scale it up to allow me to use my Ardupilot 2.7 flight controller and its associated accessories.  I have looked at the 135% version which is nice but there are some things I would like to change or keep the same as the original. I have the sonar sensor and want to use it in the original location and hole sizes, they are plugged on the 135% version.

Thanks for all your effort in making this design, I plan on starting to print the parts this week as soon as I am happy with the calibration of my printer.  It is close now but I want it better.

I found the iges files in the download section, thank you for providing them.  Now I need to scale them to the size I want while making sure all of the holes remain the same size as in your original designs.  I think this is going to take some time to accomplish but I have plenty of that available.

Do some maths

if you say want to scale 135% and hole centres is 19mm @ 100% scale

then for 135% motor holes should be about 12.35mm (Then scale in Slicer and holes then should be at 19mm)

just take off -35% off all holes Ø and you will be fine wont take long to do it

When printing the parts I understand 30% infill except for the legs. Do you use supports or will they print just fine with out supports.  It appears from your photos that you are not using supports as I see none of the tell tale signs that supports have been removed.

Just out of shear curiosity are you going to release Mavic Clone STL Files Version 4.1 F3 IGES files?  I have been working on scaling the Mavic Clone up to 115% from the 4.0 F3 IGES files and notice some differences that make it difficult to accurately scale it up.

Did some of you scale their Mavic Clones? I just started and I'm already at about 700g with motors and Battery. I assume I will end up with about 900g with everything except gimbal. It seems to be quite a lot to me.

I'm curious about your values...

I'm trying to print these, and the walls are way too thin. I'm using S3D on a perfectly calibrated Voron, and I'm trying to print the middle.stl and while the first layer is perfect, the remainder of the model just flounders.

CdRsKull,
Can you please provide me the .iges file for the Version 4.1 F3 Top Front part, I need to modify it so I can mount the GPS unit for my Arducopter setup.  I made the mistake of modifying the Version 4.0 F3 Top Front part which does not fit my 4.1 build.  I have tried to modify the 4.0 version unsuccessfully.  I know you are busy with many things, if you could provide me with that one part I would be very happy.  I have tried modifying the .stl file however I do not have the proper skill set to do that.

Thanks,
PapaJohn88

I have finally finished printing the parts for my 115% scale version of the Mavic Clone.  Since the actual GPS receiver / compass is too large to fit in the nose piece I modified the Top Front part to allow mounting of the GPS receiver / compass in its original housing. I am using an Arducopter 2.8 flight controller with OSD, sonar and GPS / compass modules.  I recessed the housing into the Top Front part, allowed the cable to enter through the back of the recessed area and fastened it in place by replacing the 4 screws that hold the GPS housing together with longer versions.  I plan to post a build diary in the next few days.

Did anybody manage to get the LEDs recommended by CdRsKuLL working in iNav/Cleanflight? I connected everything and enabled the LED_Strip feature in iNAV but only one LED from four is on and I also cannot set the colors in iNAV (nothing happens when i do so).

Giving the fact that one LED is on I think I connected and enabled them correctly but what am I missing?

EDIT: I solved my problem... I just replaced the LEDs and turned the LED Strip feature on in iNAV and it worked out of the box. No Idea what was the problem.

Hi,

Having got sick of printing an army Minions on my new 3d printer for my grandson I have decided to print something I can play with!

I have been sat in the background for a few weeks now reading everyones posts and trying to glean enough information as I can on how to build one of these baby's.

You seem like a friendly bunch and I feel I can come out of the shadows!

My knowledge of Quads (or for that matter RC) is zilch, nada, squat! Though I did have a fixed wing trainer some years ago which I wouldn't fly for rear of wrecking it!

My ultimate aim is to build the F3 version (already have it printed out and various electronics and hardware is on its way) and would like to include features such as RTH and Follow me eventually. But lets start with the basics first!

I have the following question ...

Has any one used a 4 in 1 ESC package and if so where do you suggest it is fitted? I was thinking above the sonar board but I am worrying about ventilation as it would be sandwiched.

Also ... being a total novice would folk be prepared to share some photo's of how they have mounted the electronics so I can see how it is done.

CdRsKuLL ... The cheque is in the post ... well done for a brilliant project!

Talla

Hi Everyone,

Firstly a big thanks to CdRsKuLL for making such an amazing model - I am currently printing it all out and working with my two Boys to put it together :)

I have hit a little snag though and am hoping someone can point me in the right direction .. the Gimbal Holder file .. when I try and generate the g-code, it doesn't seem right (the main base seems to be missing) .. I have tried with the one in the 3.0 release and that one works fine, but I noticed it was a slightly different design so am assuming I can't use that one.

Has anyone else had this happen and if yes, any suggestions as to how I might resolve it (I am using PrusaControl and a i3 MK2 - all other parts have sliced and printed perfectly)?

Thanks for any suggestions.

Kind regards,
Jake.

Hi Jake,
nice to hear that you can do that project with your boys. I would love to do it with mine but he is to small (not even two years). Maybe the next project...

I had the same Problem with the Gimbal File so I fixed it by importing it to Sketchup and erasing a little line that was left over when Steven designed it I think.

Attached you find the fixed file.

Great work, CdRsKuLL! Donation sent

It would be great to have a base option for a px4flow sensor instead of sonar. I can provide measurements if you're interested. It almost fits through existing sonar holes but they will need moving closer together.

@Esoxgab which one do you have exactly? There are different versions with 8bit, 40bit, 61bit...

But I actually think they are all the same regarding wiring... One end is Input and the other End output. On Input Side you have to connect +12V, GND and one Data Wire which goes to your FC.

EDIT: Could be also 5V instead of 12V depending on the LED Strip.

EDITEDIT: If you use the one recommended by CdRsKuLL it is 5V so you have to connect the side which is labelled with IN as following:

GND - GND from PDB
VCC - +5V from PDB
IN - Data Wire from your Flight Controller

Hi@All,

I´m wondering if somebody flies his Mavic (Maybe a Scaled one) with a Multistar 4000mah 3S battery?
I would like to know the dimensions and weight to compare it with my 3000mah battery to see if it could fit in my non-scaled Mavic.
Title: Re: Mavic Clone STL Files Version 4.1 F3
Post by: Papajohn88 on December 07, 2017, 08:05:57 PM
iRazoR,
The MultiStar High Capacity 3000mAh 3S 10C Multi-Rotor Lipo Pack is 107mm x 34mm x 28mm. The MultiStar High Capacity 4000mAh 3S 10C Multi-Rotor Lipo Pack is 112mm x 34mm x 30mm.  Looking at my 115% Mavic drawings I believe it will fit.  I have been thinking about this myself, I may order one just to see.  Right now all of my batteries are the 3000mah version.  I can always us it in my Spyda 500 if it won't fit in the Mavic.
Title: Re: Mavic Clone STL Files Version 4.1 F3
Post by: iRazoR on December 07, 2017, 08:47:36 PM
Thank you very much for the dimensions. From this it really could fit. To bad that I just ordered another 3000mah Battery today  ;D
But if you try it I would definetly like to know the result because I fear that the Gimbal will drain the battery badly when everything is installed...
Title: Re: Mavic Clone Balance point
Post by: Papajohn88 on December 08, 2017, 02:14:15 PM
I am trying to sort out some problems with my Mavic clone, it is scaled up 115% from the original.  My problem is it seems to be grossly nose heavy.  When I attempt to lift off the back comes up first and in fact it seems that is it going to tip over,  I can pull back on the pitch and get it to lift off however it is not happy.  I drew have determined the actual center of balance is about 10mm in front of the center of the wheel base.  There is currently nothing mounted in the nose.  removing the battery does not change the actual balance point. 

The flight control is an APM 2.8, ESC is a hobbywing 4-in-1, battery is 3000mah, motors are 2212 980kvm.  I am just looking at all aspects of my initial flight problems.  So far I have broken three arms and the base.   

I have determined through measurements in Fusion 360 against the fully assembled drawing the wheel base is 350mm making my wheel base 402.5mm.  I will need about 3 ounces of weight at the rear of the base to bring it into static balance.  That brings up two problems, what to use and where to place the weight. The center of the wheel base is located 55.4mm from the back edge of the top front part where the battery cover meets it.

I have a few questions regarding the build.
Here are the components I am planning on purchasing.

SP Racing F3 Deluxe Flight Controller 10DOF Cleanflight Integrated OSD
FrSky Taranis Q X7 16 Channel Transmitter
2212 920kV Brushless Motors
Mavic 8330F Propellers
iFlight iPeaka 35A 4 in 1 DSHOT 600 BLHELI_S ESC w/Built-in 5V and 12V
FrSky D4R-II
Super Mini Size NZ GPS for NAZE32
VTX03 Super Mini FPV Transmitter
3S 11.1V 3000mAh Lipo Battery

Will these components work together?
What type of gimbal/gimbal controller and camera can I connect to the system?
What can I use to view the video feed from the FPV Transmitter?
Is there something I am missing, or do i have all the necessary electronic components?
Title: Re: Mavic Clone STL Files Version 4.1 F3
Post by: iRazoR on January 03, 2018, 11:12:50 PM
Hi TomanSager

your components look good so far and they should work together.
To watch the Video Feed you have multiple options. For example I use an simple Android FPV Receiver to watch the feed for the moment but you can also use the classic goggles.
Regarding the Frsky RX I would think about a 10 Channel Receiver from the beginning if you plan
To use a Gimbal but that is just my personal opinion.

Regarding the Gimbal there are different Solutions available. You should have a look on the other Build Diaries. They are very helpful.
Title: Re: Mavic Clone STL Files Version 4.1 F3
Post by: TomanSager on January 03, 2018, 11:26:03 PM
I am going to change to the X4R-SB Receiver. 16 Ch and SBUS.

For the gimbal and camera, I need to do some more research online. Questions like, can I change camera modes while in flight?(e.g. 1080p video to still pictures) Can I turn the camera on and off, or do I have to turn it on and start recording before flight?
Title: Re: Mavic Clone STL Files Version 4.1 F3
Post by: iRazoR on January 04, 2018, 02:49:08 AM
The Option for now regarding Camera is still the Runcam Split (V2 or maybe V3). That is also the reason why I said to take a RX with more channels. The Runcam Split for example can be connected to a free UART Port of the Flight Controller and you can control the Camera from your Remote (i.e. change mode from Video to Photo).

Post by: KDan on January 15, 2018, 12:02:31 PM
@darozas
The problem is that the most recent STL files include a part designed to hold that crappy NZ GPS and a D4RII receiver. He'd need to remove that part and include a new one. Which specific GPS should he design it for? And which receiver? Obviously almost nobody is going to use those parts, but he also has no idea which parts you might use. There is no consensus that I am aware of. It's basically up to you to design what you need to fit the hardware you want to use.

@xplosify
Middle.stl is the older part with the closer hole spacing for the front two screws. Base Middle.stl is the newest part with the wider spacing that matches the top front cover included in the V4.1 package. Probably almost everyone will want to use that part. You can view the difference by dropping each .stl file into this online viewer (https://www.viewstl.com/).

In my case I needed to make more extensive modifications to both of those parts, but wanted the wider spacing. I ended up downloading the IGS files and then editing them to bring them up to date (matching V4.1) in my CAD software. Now I can make changes much more easily than trying to edit the stl mesh. It would be nice to have IGS files of V4.1, but it seems we have to work with what we have... ;)

To overcome the ball plunger requirement ( the M4 bolts make the arms more than secure so this is just the icing)  I have spent an hour or so printing different diameter balls on a stalk ( like a lollipop)  with the intention of using one in place of the plunger and robbing a spring from one of the wife's pens,  I could use one of mine,  but y'know. Lol

Balls were printed in 5,4.5,4 and 3.5mm with a 0.15 layer height at 50% with cooling off.  Anything below 3.5 was useless,  I printed 2 of each size and am more than happy with the results.

Will upload some pics.

Hey folks,

I'm totally new to this so I was hoping I could get a little advice on motors for this thing. The Black Widow motor that was used isn't sold anymore, or at least not that I could find. I was doing the compare and contrast thing, but I'm not sure I know what I'm looking at. I was looking at these Multistar motors (https://hobbyking.com/en_us/2205-with-built-in-30a-bl-heli-esc-ccw-15-lam.html (https://hobbyking.com/en_us/2205-with-built-in-30a-bl-heli-esc-ccw-15-lam.html)), and they seem like they'd fit the bill, but before I pull the trigger.

Any thoughts?

Hi robcollie,

very good found, I couldnt find any other Motors with built-in ESC when I started my Build.
I don´t see any reason why these Motors should not work. The only concern I have is that they are quite powerful with 2350KV. If you find them a bit lower with about 1000-1200KV would be better I guess but also with these should work.

What's the downside to more power (insert Tim Allen grunt here)? Is it an issue of control?

I didnt made experience on my own but I could imagine it is hard to control and it would drain your battery a lot faster which is more important I guess.

Higher KV means that the motor is faster, the KV rating is an indicator of how many RPM's the motor will spin with 1volt added.
The original mavic runs at 1400kv motors - 1400kv * 11.1v = 15540RPM
the multistar motors will run at 2350kv * 11.1v = 26085RPM

to make an 8,3" prop spin at that speed, requires a lot of Amps! and gives you hotter ESC's and motors and shorter flight time!

Hello

Where can I find the original files (Not stl) that I can modify ?

is there a basic shopping list for parts.  Having read your forum, facebook and anything else I can get my hands on I am more confused than normal.  This will be my first build after setting up and modding my Creality CR-10s.  I would like to go shopping for parts so i can assemble as I build each part.  Your best suggestions would help me immensely.

Thanks in advance

I uploaded the iges files which you can load and change in most 3D software. There in the download section above.

Thanks,

CdRsKuLL you did a wonderfull job with the mavic clone but i was wondering if you can update the iges files to the latest version and also if you can provide me the top front part without holes for the screws in iges format. Thanks.

Determined to use the original mavic props, I designed this simple "quick change adapter".
Fits nicely, but still have to test for durability 😊

Edit: fits the sunnysky x2208 motors!

Thabks man although why didn't you go for the original mavic base mounts instead of designing your own? As far as i know the motors you have there have the same diameter mounting holes as the original ones. You just need to design a spacer since there is a 2mm gap between the holes and where the mount sits. Correct me if i am wrong. I did a rough design i will post some photos later.

Edit: here are some photos

Hello. I would like to know the size of the parts of the drone. I bought a small 3d printer which prints 130mmX 150mmX100. I do not know if I would be able to print. Thank you

Nice design!  :)
Ofcorse i have, though a little simpler then your design! The holes are a perfect match on the sunnysky motor, but I made this adapter for the guys that don't want to buy the original adapter and as backup :)

Dear  STiXzoOR

I didnt find in the iges files the front gps +  receiver + led holder... where can I find it?

As promised, the adapter I made to use mavic props on Sunnysky X2208 motors!
As i have been to work for a couple of weeks now, I have not been able to test it properly yet!

Hey guys

I was wandering if there's any build video around here? For the new version i mean.
I've seen one on youtube but for a older version, where he uses 4 ESC's sticked together with some king of copper or aluminium dissipation plate, all stuffed inside... A bit dangerous imo, so i was curious to see other build.

Also, i still dont get how those plungers work, any kind soul could show me?

Thanks

About halfway through printing all the parts. Any idea if the stock dji Mavic gimble will fit on the clone? I know the holes might not Line up, but I was more wondering about spacing, like if the stock gimble camera would be restricted somehow.

Scusi, was looking all over for a download-section in this forum.
Did not realise it was on the site.
