I was wondering if someone had a cad drawing for the 600N and 600E frames? I wanted to see if I could get a friend to cut out some from some 7075 aluminum.
Thanks!

The gentleman has sent it to me but wouldn't you need the dimensions to load into a cad system?

He will need do define the cut paths and tools so CAM I guess but don't the CAD files have the actual dimensions?

About using aluminum, that wouldn't be my choice. They could bend in a crash and you'll:
a) never know
b) never be able to strait them back.

Thats why I prefer carbon. Either its broken or its strait

I was considering aquiring a larger CNC machine myself so I could cut frames but when I think of it, its probably too much hassle. Kinda reminds me the two hours I spent designing, creating paths to cut a $3 servoplate. Not to mention that my final code had an error in it(or was it the Z axis that jammed? I'll never know) so when the plate was almost finished (only thing left was chamfering the edges), the computer decided to cut through it diagonally across... man was I pissed lol.

The other problem is calculating cutting speeds based on depth, tool, etc... that will cost you milling bit after milling bit so when you add it all up, its never cost efective until you find the right cutting speed and tool for the job. I never understood why one setting worked fine on one machine and not on the other (refering to carbon that is)

The only thing that could make it up is that after all the hassle you'll be able to sell a bunch of them to your friends and I suck as a seller so its not cost effective

Yes I am interested. My friend asked me for a CAD design if I wanted him to build some frames for me. I wanted to experiment with alum and some Kevlar based stuff but didn't want a hack job either. After a few crashes from myself and others I wanted to see if there was a way to strengthening some weak points.

I appreciate it.

Si mi hermano... son una mier#$!

We need to do something, adding the frame cost in every crash is crazy!!

Hola Eugenio

I'm not really concerned by the price (of course it is important) but what really hurts me is to have to disassemble and assemble again the whole heli to have the chassis replaced. I'm always traveling and have very few time for maintenance.
