woot..  now it's getting there :-)  How did you find your canopy fit, did everything line up? I think it makes a big difference when you get the canopy on.


Oi.. you need to upload your leg positioning parts.. trying to slip new mods past me.. lol I don't know ;-p
The fit is great. Everything lines up. My only issues are with my micro switches. They won't fit your hole spacing so I am printing up a new one with my spacing. Once I fit everything I will upload my stl files for others to use if needed. Just waiting for carbon tubes to get here and check the fitment of my parts.

Okay then where can we get the.stl files?? Also how is that of drilling into the CF tubes? Just a normal drill would do it?

I did not mean I couldn't drill into carbon tube but I prefer to clamp onto it so I still have option of moving it in case it needs alignment. Just loosen one bolt and adjust it. Unlike drilling into carbon tube you would need to remove bolts and re drill.
 As for the STL files, I will share as soon as can fit them and confirm the correct size on the tubes.

Yes it is easy. Just use a high speed bit and don't push thru, let drill do the work.

And one last thing, very important how do you put the nuts inside the tube?

I don't think you use any nuts. Just screw into tubes. Maybe use a drop of CA glue.

You need to drill the holes  through the pipes,nut will be on the other side of the arms.
Use m3 by 40mm.

Yes, as Imbashammy says. Drill directly through the CF tubing and secure on the other side. All the parts wrap around the tubes and have a bolt through them to secure it. Pre-assemble the quad before installing any electronics so you dont risk drilling through wires. It does make it pain trying to feed the wires up the legs but it's not that bad. Also you need to drill a slot in the legs for the wires to go through from the arms.

Getting bored waiting for CF tubes. Decided to print some white struts for motor feet. Finally got my 360 servo and lead screw...

I am using Multistar 4108-480 motors since I have them already. Needed to modify the motor mount holes. attached STL if interested.

Since I had a bunch of epistar 1w-3w 140 degree LEDs I decided to use them and make a holder for them on the motor mounts. They can be glued on or a small screw can be used. They fit without any modifications to motor mounts. The original led holes can be used to feed wire thru.

These are super bright.
The motor mount foot is not ready to post.
