This is my first quad and i like it for this reason no propelers view, good motor and really strong frame at the impact.
I do for this frame an air cooling system for Dji air unit to decrease temperature during flight.
You can find on https://www.thingiverse.com many 3D printed part i do for this frame.
Hope you enjoy this design.
