As the 3D printing technology stepped up recently I decided to create a new frame by it.
The idea came from my friend Adrian who has a 3D delta printer of his own design. After he showed me his first 170-sized race model, I was sure I wanted to have it.

Printing of the night ops drone is a matter of a few days so real pictures will follow soon, as well as the spec of all the electronics.
Stay tuned…Leave a Comment
