Sure. But basically, all the subjects are getting cut off.

Can you pm me a screen shot of what you mean

Gaza - can you make the subject line section in the forum topic list wider? It's cutting off the subject field really short.

Had another negative encounter, it's been a few years since the last one, just an uneducated ******, going on about drones being illegal yada yada yada.    :-/
Still that didn't spoil my flying time, had an absolute blast  ~~

DB that just means you have shed loads of props in the first place ;-)

Just had a thought, even with all the crashing I've done, I haven't bought any replacement props in over a year ~~

Building my first hex

Previous topic - Next topic


After seeing flite test';s Anycopter I thought it was a great idea and promptly started trying to copy it (they now supply the plans free)
Anyway like most things I build they get bigger,I had intended to use parts from my H-quad but decided against that but stuck with DT750 motors as I allready had 1 and loads of props.

Here is my laser cut H-quad next to the start of my Hex

I planned to mill out some motor mounts like I used on the H-quad but then decided to try something new

H-quad mounts

I mounted the motor straight into the arm the wires also run inside the arm

I';m using 15mm aluminium box for the arms and using locktite Secured a cube of aluminium into the end of the arm then drilled the motor and grub screw holes

Cad mockups (grub screws in wrong place)

Body end with wire cutout

I just need to make 5 more arms now  :waiting:



great stuff, that arm looks nicely done and i like the idea of running the cable along inside, should look quite tidy when finished.
Point and click.

Monkey see, Monkey do.
