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.
Elegant.
I think it needs a polycarbonate bikiini top for the cam/antenni/vTx. Maybe you could just print it a mowhawk?

Dave,
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 :-)

When the FatShark HDOs hit the market in 2018 the FPV community rejoiced for the new Sony OLED displays. While they lacked further upgrades like an updated DVR and power button they were still a market success. With the 2019 announcement of the Orqa FPV.One the community finally had a potential HDO killer on the horizon. With only weeks before the release of the Orqa FPV.One Skyzone came out of left..
