Tbh I've been really busy, not had much time to fly anything and with conditions being crap, hopefully in the new year I'll have some new projects on the go, mostly to do with HAM radio, will certainly fly again soon. FTR I hate FB too   :D Merry Christmas

I had no luck finding the 1/2inch Wyes in Australia. I end up getting them from the states.
They only cost $1.20 each. (Though they hit me about $45 in freight.) So order plenty.
The 1/2inch PVC arms from Local Hardware Store for about $8.
The Aluminium brakets I got from Local Hardware Store  for about $15.
The Rubber grommets from Local Hardware Store for $10.
The Aluminium Rivets from Local Hardware Store for $5
The Screws and Nuts From Ebay. For $10.
The Landing gear From Local Hardware Store $10

So all up the frame cost me about $65. If you don't include the freight content.

The Hardware costs:

FCB: Rabbit Flight Controller From Aliexpress.com $150
Motors: Turnigy NTM 28-26 1200kv: From Hobbyking $16 each x8 = $128
ESC: Turnigy Plush 25 Amp.: From Hobbyking $13 each x8 = $104
Propellers: Gemfan 9x4.7
Battery: Zippy Flightmax 3s 5000mah 20c: From Hobbyking $22

Total Hardware cost: Approx $450
So total build cost: Approx $550

Very nice work. I can see i need to get myself a decent drill so that i can start to learn to make things with aluminium as i like your motor mounts.
One circlip short of a quadcopter.
 1 lobe short of an antenna.


Thanks for posting your build it really is very good quality workmanship well done  ~~
I liked your video on recycling pvc to, I m a plumber and always throw it away although I doubt we use the same type as you do  :-/


Well done on re inventing the wheel   :rolleyes: it looks very good and very stable  ~~


Î’eautiful frame and stable flight but gimbal is all the money :wack0
You connect gimbal to Rabbit or on RX
