We love to bring projects and plans to our readers in our other publications and what better way to launch a new magazine than to have a custom-designed quadcopter and make it available to you for FREE? Well, it is not totally free as you will need to buy the electronics and have access to a 3D printer, but the design is free and even if you don’t have access to a printer, we can help you there as well.
Below are two files for each part. The .STL files () are the all set to slice with your printer’s slicing software and then send to the printer. The .SKP files () are the original Sketchup files that you can feel free to modify as you see fit.
All the parts were printed with 3 top and 3 bottom layers, 30% infill, and 3 perimeters. No support is necessary. All parts were printed with PLA filament (orange parts printed on a Ultimaker 2 and the white parts printed on a Leapfrog Creatr)
DON’T HAVE A 3D PRINTER?
If you don’t have a 3D Printer but would like to get a mount, please contact me at email@example.com and I will put you in touch with someone who can print one for you.
