My third Y6 build using my Everycopter hub plates, this time using roll-wrapped carbon fibre rods instead of hardwood dowels. I bought the rods direct from the manufacuter in China & used a circular mitre saw with a continous edge diamond blade to cut them.

DJI has always owned the drone photography market, but smaller acrobatic drones are starting to enter the market. They have the advantage of close proximity flight indoors and around people. There's more artistic freedom and..
