3D model description

The smallest 3D printed FPV/ miniature personal nano UAV platform: XL-RCM 10.0 PIXXY : Pocket drone/FPV quad
It is consider the smallest "3D printed" FPV/UAV platform ever made for public/civilian use on the day it was released to the public on 15th March 2014. Extremely light weighted at 40 gram, palm/pocket sized, easily stored into any storage, cheaper building cost, easier to build with simple soldering skills and parts widely available in common online hobby and toy shop. I design this kit to enable me to enjoy fun indoor remote video wireless FPV flight flying through various narrow obstacles and also can be flown outdoor like its bigger brother too. The size, weight and micro rotor added safety factor minimized any harm to both living things and property should it bump into anyone or crashed into other's property.
This kit accept common and popular nano sized multirotor and FPV hardware that can be found on any hobby stores, security hardware shops and also popular online electronics supplier with building cost below USD $100 for complete personal FPV/UAV experience on normal screen/tv, all thanks to cheap open source electronics.

3D printing settings

This 3d printed kit consist of 3x parts: the top cover, the main frame and the lower motor base cup. Required or recomended to be 3D print using plastic ABS material for rigid struture. Once done printing user only need to shed off support material and snap in all the required electronic hardware by hand. Theres no screws or glue needed to snap in all the electronics hardwares however soldering are needed to connect wires between motors, flight board controller, video transmitter and camera only. Glue only required or optional to keep the top frame cover in place if necessary.
For more details and instruction check it at this url:
* Do take note i'm using Z-modeler to build this 3D parts so would look "cracky" on some 3d viewer but no problem during 3D printing.
*Editable *3ds file also available at my website for those who wanted to customized/modify the kit meshes.
