I crossed one item off my quad bucket list today. Yay!
I broke all of my brushed carbon fiber frames, my tinywhoop motors are burnt and my 1s scisky build flies like sh#t. I needed an indoor brushed quad but I don’t want to wait for a CF frame from Banggood to arrive, so I built an X frame from popsicle sticks instead.

I used large popsicle sticks to accommodate 8.5mm motors. The motor to motor distance is about 120mm.
The main problem I encountered was the motor mounts. I don’t want to use a hot glue to mount the motors, so I tried to use a broken motor as drill bit. I was hesitant at first that I might break the frame but it went well. Also, I did the loom bands technique and made a tighter fit. 😀
I’m happy with this build so far, not an appealing look but I’m very satisfied with it. Chopsticks next maybe? Hmm…
