Awesome Hex by Andreas!
Andreas made a Hex today! He started looking at it a couple of days ago after doing some weight testing on his Quad. He's posted some notes over at diydrones. Total frame cost, about $10! He printed a cutting guide on paper and glued it to the plates for a cutting and fitting template. Here's the arms glued into the two plates.
Fitting the power distribution. Note that he's bolted the arms as well. It uses two batteries, each powering three motors in a triangular arrangement -- hopefully a power system failure will allow the three remaining motors to get the unit to the ground without a smashup.
And later that evening, it was ready to fly. This is why it's so much fun hanging around this guy!!
