Here we go!

Started printing mine today.  Part 3 in the printer as I type.  I am looking forward to seeing this in its finished state.  Will keep posting the progress.

Great, looking forward to the results :-)  I think you will have worked out the number in brackets denotes how many of that part you need to print ;-) Let me know if you get stuck or can think of a way to improve a part..

Just hang fire with the battery cover and the battery top if you haven't printed them yet. I'm just seeing if I can make the battery top part of the battery to see if I can get it to just slot in and it auto connects the power XT connector. .. You will need one top for each battery but it will save messing abut with all the wires... more like the inspire :-)


Attached is a photo of what I'm thinking about.  what do you think?

I will pass by those parts until later.  I am now printing the inner leg housing.

Just printed the 'center top plate'.  Just one question...is there supposed to be a half moon cutout for the pivot rod to sit on both side?  There is a half moon cutout on one section of the part, but not the other.  Which, when connected to the center bottom plate, will not create a full circular cavity for a rod to sit in.  Let me know how it is supposed to be.

Sorry fella, completely my fault. I've corrected the part and also added the canopy GPS mount.

Again, sorry I changed a bit of the part and it must have effected them 14mm holes and I didn't notice

Which parts actually make the canopy of the unit?  I am going to make them in a different color and need to know the parts that make up the canopy.

The canopy is actually an original DJI product. I used the top / bottom / nose and arms off an inspire. I did try and design one but struggled with the shape and being able to print it. The parts cost be about 55 uk pounds.  It uses the same mounting points as the inspire so fits really good.
