As the 3D printing technology stepped up recently I decided to create a new frame by it.
The idea came from my friend Adrian who has a 3D delta printer of his own design. After he showed me his first 170-sized race model, I was sure I wanted to have it.
However, slightly modified to fit all my electronics in it, respectively. Plus, I asked him to redesign the project so it supports night flying.
The aim is to have a crashproof, small, lightweight model that has its own infrared illuminator and is capable of night flying even in pitch black.
