    Hi All,

    Just wanted to let everyone know that I've opened the shop to sell some on my 3D printed aircraft designs. I have successfully flown, crashed, and re-flown my first 3D printed Quadcopter frame.

    First flight video can be found here:

    You can find a detailed discussion about this quadcopter frame on DiYDrones at the following blog, including a detailed parts list to build it:

    Please visit my shop to see all the goodies:

    Wow looks cool, although since you're using 3d printing you dont have to stick to traditional shapes. It would be cool to see some futuristic parts being printed and actually working. Theres something to be said also for functionality. More organic shapes can be more efficient to their milled look counterparts.

    It would be nice to add a flourish to the designs, but I'm trying to keep the cost down for customers. So, I need to stick to bare essentials.

    Cheers,
    Ellison
