Here is the first prototype of the frame I am desiging called the Harpoon 5. This specific build includes all of the research I had done from 3D printing the frame all the way up to the first batch of cuts. A few issuese were found in development so some parts have been changed. Feel free to visit my site to keep up to date on the finalized frame design as well as my other frame designs in the pipeline!

The goal is to have a finalized quadcopter design by the end of January 2019! Stay tuned!

Now we've got the best of both worlds and what..
