Leftover Parts Calimero

I had a bunch of old micro parts laying around so I decided to build a little toothpick sized quad on the Calimero Frame.
While I initally designed the Calimero HD frame for the Caddx Turtle V2 this is an adaptation for "regular" toothpick builds without HD capable cam. It doesn't have the slots for the SD Card and different mounts to fit 25.5x25.5 whoop boards and 16x16.
This is the first frame I printed out of SainSmart PETG and I am totally blown away by that stuff! It is kind of soft but also impossible to break (just bends at some points) and because it is kind of soft it seems to dampen vibration! I also used it on a build with the Caddy Turtle HD cam and I got insanely smooth video with literally zero jello.

I get stoaked when I see a new post from you now. I can tell before I even read the name on the post, all it takes is a glance at the thumbnail.
I think it needs a polycarbonate bikiini top for the cam/antenni/vTx. Maybe you could just print it a mowhawk?

Printed the ARS v2.0 and the Calimero this week. I'm using your baked PLA method at the moment using some PLA+ as I don't have any PETG.

However I'm really excited to get these built and in the air.

Thanks for your hard work.

P.S. Looking forward to a 3" model...

Thank you! :-) 3" Model is coming soon I hope. I just have too many projects in parallel at the moment haha :-D

Really? I just right now discovered I have to have this frame on some Returner 1106's. If you make a 3" I will HAVE to have that on some FD1408 2400 KV's. I'm trying to stop this obsession with building a new quad every month. Your not helping. =]

very nice simple camera mount. durebility isnt sportive ;-) choosing between active safety - lower weight and better handling or passive safety is allways question about priorities or flying consisdancy. i like possibilities and safety in my activity my hands:
i vote for the pure bikiniless version - more sportive more sexy :-)

A couple years ago I built the TransTEC Frog and since then I've been patiently waiting for another TransTEC frame to catch my eye. Fast forward to today and the TransTEC Laser S is that frame. It's a 82g racing frame that features 6mm arms, a TPU micro cam mount, 30.5mm and 20mm stack mounts and 3K carbon and 7075 hardware. My goal here was to build a high quality 6S racer at a reasonable price. I'd..

This is the 4th installment to my popular "Wizard Killer" series, and is based on the popular Wizard X220HV 6S. As usual, the goal was to build a substantially better quad, yet come in below the retail price of the BNF kit. Here are some of the improvements: Higher quality EMAX ECO 2306 1700kv motors Foxeer's top-of-the-line Falkor mini camera Eachine 25mw-1000mw Leaf VTX with microphone Tools This..
