I have a few hexTronik 5gram Brushless Outrunner 2000kv that might just find a nice home in a frame like this. What options are their for ESCs in the 5-10amp range (with SimonK or similar flash)? What battery size are you looking at (I have a few 2s 800mAh sitting around)?
    Here's the spreadsheet listed with amps

    i would have to rework the bobbin layout if the arms are sandwiched like a "normal" frame. right now it fits perfectly if i put a normal M3 nut on either side of the bobbins before attaching them.

    A 1300mAh 3S battery is pictured in the drawing. I will be using 1900-2200kv motors on 3S. 3000-3300kv will work on 2S. This will be another 3D quad for me, so I am using blueseries 12A ESC. they are very small and can take the spike of reversing motor direction.

    the quad is balanced very well with the components placed exactly as above.
    Is there a custom firmware load for, reversible ESCs on quads? I am pretty far out of the loop on acro quads, been focused on planes the last few months. Been watching your vids though and am very impressed at the capabilities.

    Thank you.
    When nothing else out there will suit your needs... design and build it yourself.

    for the 3D firmware it only works with a few ESC and motors, we're still working on quicker startup etc.

    and there aren't any decent 3D props available. on top of that + Naze32 being the only FC to support it(unofficially) it is not that popular. I don't think you will see a CC3D fly upside down, which is quite ironic

    Hey chris,

    Rebuilt my nanoquad - doubled the frame up (2 new frames, drilled solder joints out of second one) and epoxied it so the impervious to crash (it was pretty much crash proof from the get go).
    The original nanoquad I had at the patch was 80g weight and 710g of thrust, so with those 4 * tiger MT-1306 3100kv 2s motors, you can easily make this copter crash proof imo. THis will be the new FUN quad due to its durability and will easily have the "chatch power" stamp lol

    Sign me up for this(beta? lol), I had so much fun flying my nanoquad around with that power, this has to be the next step! - anything that can take a crash and not break (props are ok) is badass in my book, you can try acrobatics and dodge stuff without worry!

    Demo of the power of the 4 3100kv tiger motors - this is my nanoquad carrying a gopro around WITH the pico fpv gear (2:07 in the video - the gopro was velcroed right onto the frame)
