This is the latest tweak to my Skele7on frame designs - this time for 1206 motors on 3" props.
On 3S this is faaast. On 4S its a rocket!

The latest addition to the frame (don't know why I didn't do this before!) is a channel to keep the motor wires out of the way. It makes a far neater build, better aerodynamics and adds no appreciable weight.

Here is a video on 3S:

4S is too fast for my garden!

I've been wanting to print one of your frames since the the first skele7on and picked up some polycarbonate but every where I looked made it sound super hard to print. I have a maker select with a titan aero, 0.4mm nozzle, and pei print surface. Would this with and an improvised cardboard enclosure be enough to get a succesful print you think? Is there any other printing tips or recomendations you would have? I've also got petg, abs, and pla if you think polycarbonate is too difficult.

If you can get your printer hot enough then these frames are small enough to print without an enclosure in my experience... How hot can you get your hotend and bed? You really need a minimum of 290c+ for the hotend and 100C+ for the bed...
If not give it a go in ABS - I'd love to know if it works!

PC is really a mess, you need to know your printer and settings afront really well. Use the PC to print benchies, and use it for daily makes to find out best settings. Yes you have to get really hot and you have to print fast because PC is shrinking a lot when it´s cooling down and then it curling and getting off the build plate. A heated plate is a must, an enclosure not necessarily...

In late 2019 DJI made inroads into the FPV scene with their remarkable low-latency digital system. It gave us a 720p video feed with latency on-par with the status quo, analog video. Traditionally we've used analog video systems for low-latency video, but the video quality is far from ideal. It's a trade-off we've been willing to accept for the control. Now we've got the best of both worlds and what..

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..
