This is an hexacopter design for fast fpv flying.
It has motors tilted forward, so it can fly faster with better air flow.
It is based on designs by Brendan22 on thingiverse (http://www.thingiverse.com/Brendan22) and our own.
It is 3d printable and does not need bolts, it just need zip ties.
All the information for the multicopter set up is on the video at the end.
Video with better quality in vimeo:
Updated top cover for better support of magnets and added a go pro 3 untested cover...
Tips for printing:
I have an ultimaker 2, so thats the printer was used for the project by me so far. infill was at 100% in all parts.
I printed the arms at layer height 0.1mm and speed at 50mm/s, infill 100% , it is slow but arms which are base on brendan22 arms are really strong on PLA.
Body was at layer height 0.2 and 70 mm/s, If use colorfab XT I disable combing.
Top cover was printed with and without support, it ended much better with support grid with overhang angle for support at 87 deg.
Arms needed to fit inside the body with a rubber hammer (press fit) and cover fitted better if it was printed at 105% scale
Magnets used are 8mm diameter and 1mm height, ebay have several places to buy cheap magnets...
