Extra Large EPP Quadcopter Frame 450mm (835mm total width)

Extra Large EPP Quadcopter Frame 450mm (835mm total width)
Extra Large EPP Quadcopter Frame 450mm (835mm total width)

This EPP quadcopter frame is a great way to get into large multi-rotor aircraft without breaking the bank! With its lightweight EPP foam, plywood and glass fiber construction, only a low current-draw power system is required. This keeps component costs down, and offers long flight times.

Don't be fooled by the 450mm width, this is only the measurement from motor shaft to motor shaft (which are centrally located). The actual overall width of this frame is a huge 835mm! It's seriously large offering a great presence in the air.

The best feature of this frame is the foam propeller guards that are integrated into the design. This protects your props when bumping into walls or other obstacles.

Specs:
Width: 835mm (450mm motor shaft to motor shaft)
Height: 90mm
Weight: 330g (without electronics)

Multi-rotor control board
1300~1800mAh 3S lipoly battery

Hi. I am trying to build a quad that is safer to fly near (not above) people. Could this frame accomodate a gimbal for gopro hero camera? Thanks!

Eduardo, It most likely could depending on your setup, but where to mount it would be the issue. This design is great to learn on and train others on as a flyer because it can take a beating and keep on flying. I suppose if you had powerful enough motors, you could mount a gimbal between and under the front two props while counter balancing with a battery or batteries between the back two. Hope this helps and Happy flying!

The Best frame to learn flying Quad indoors. I installed APM2.5 on it. *******youtu.be/4b1kwmU_gxo

This thing is VERY tough and great for anyone who wants to learn to fly multirotor. However it isnt as stable as an ordinary multirotor and requires the gains to be turned up quite a bit more. The best thing to use in a board with autolevel such as one of the KK2 boards, HK Pilot, DJI, or multiwii. I tried the i86 but when doing yaw turns it can get pretty unstable so I went with the KK2 and it made it fly much better. Hope this helps and Happy flying!

Hallo, wie werden die Motorhalterungen am Fiberglass befestigt?

5min Epoxy klebstoff hat fur mich das trick gut gespielt! fliege ich es seit 6 monate ohne problem. Du musst zuerst fiberglass rod gut depolieren mit fein schleifpapier zubereiten.

Fun flyer! KK2 does great once fine tuned. Pretty durable. Nice to have defacto prop guard - already saved a prop or two, and a door ding /:O Quite susceptible to wind though! Doesn't get any more basic, and may well be a good novice UAV platform. Hoping to add super simple gimbal (SSG) soon. Looking for a SSG template or pre-made kit.

Love this frame. I've crashed it in ways that already put a DJI 450 into pieces, but this just kept on flying. It's slow, stable and responsive with KK2, maybe overpowered with 1200 KV & 10.4 props, but a nice stable platform for a fun flyer. I'd like to mod one into an H frame, or see a hex or Octo version. Just plain fun for daily flyer, and durable. I've still got the original set of props on it despite numerous crashes. Using HK power dist board & KK2. Found great settings on web that make it nice and 'fluffy' to float around, auto level feature of KK2 working great. Strapped a little web cam on it, and it worked out great! Good fun, durable design, and I would highly recommend. I used to fly a Blade MQx for daily fun-flying, but this took it's place. Used plenty of hot glue & foam safe CA to reinforce. Using SimonK 30A Afro ESC's, and I couldn't be happier with their performance. I modded a 1" stand up basswood border around the center to give me some more space, and that really helped when I had a complete 180 degree nose dive from 40-50' on a windy day, and it survived in-tact. Although, from an aerodynamic standpoint, it is quite a bit more affected by wind than other un-shielded prop designs.

Very very nice beginner quad. this is my first multicopter and I have learned to tame this one without breaking a single prop so far. My setup was done using a KK2.1 board Inside its foam, 3s 2200mah battery, Qbrain 4x integrated esc. Assembly of the polystyren frame was done Under an hour using hot-glue gun. Rest of the assembly (gluing of motors stand painting, motor, electrical and electronic installation) took an extra 3 hours. Fine tuneup took around 10 flights Very much recommended if you want to get into the multirotor business without breaking the piggy bank

This is a really cool idea, as it is pretty tough, it floats, and is safer to fly in areas where there are people as it won't hurt nearly as much as a normal quad if it were to fall out of the sky and hit somebody. The frame itself is pretty easy to build and is well designed, but the motor mounts are pure crap. Little wooden boxes that you epoxy onto the rods is a very poor design. A couple of clamps and a glass fiber plate to mount the motors would be way better, and would be very easy to do. In fact, this is something I'm going to have to do to mine soon. If you buy this, I highly recommend getting some clamps and drilling some holes in a blank glass fiber sheet.
