3D printed M170 frame with IR illuminator support

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.

However, slightly modified to fit all my electronics in it, respectively. Plus, I asked him to redesign the project so it supports night flying.

The aim is to have a crashproof, small, lightweight model that has its own infrared illuminator and is capable of night flying even in pitch black.

For the basic model, check here:

The associated pictures of the project:

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…
