I think Ben should just steal the name from Marco and call his frame "The Stiffy 550"

can see it now, guys telling their wives that they want a Stiffy for their birthday...t-shirts that simply say. "Got a Stiffy?"

Hi Ben,

Some fantastic work your doing there mate.

I remember doing some side frames for a picolo micro years ago and there was a company in the UK where you sent them the out line drawing in auto cadd and they'd tell you what it cost to CNC in CF. The limiting factor was the materail sheet size , as in, how many frames they could get from one sheet and of course once set up the cost of doing 2 or more sheets was relatively small.
You may also want to consider the finishing aspect as this is time consuming ( read expensive). If you are willing to accept the frames raw and do the de-buring / edge smotthing yourself theres a significant cost saving right there.

While doing some research for a completely different project i visited these guys here in Singapore . http://www.dama.com.sg/

According to them poly carbonate is nearly bullet proof so i would imagine is most suited for heli frames
One thing you may want to consider is the thermal properties of the material you decide upon . Not sure about your heli but even my trex has some "hot spots" after 10 or so mins of lfying

Following with interest ...keep up the good work

Cheers

Phil

Hey Phil, looks like Ben and I may have to come over on a 'fact finding' mission. Like to meet up? We have some friends in Sing already but it would be nice to meet a fellow HF, and always good to troll around the LHS's. What work you doing there?

excellent Mystic. Simplicity works in advertising and getting people talking ("what does that mean on your t'shirt?") is a great promotional aid. How does Marco feel about using his 'stiffy' term? Perhaps we can bribe him with the perfume NZ women find hard to resist.......mint sauce!

If Marco lets you use his 'stiffy' term you will probably have to add a dancing banana on the logo for him.

Hi rmccomb

Development of the frame had slowed to a crawl due to me starting a new job
However due to a pretty fast dissasembly process of my plastic frame dhurry due to a broken blade grip and the following distruction development time scale has been pushed forward.!

I am expecting the first assembly prototype frames made from acrylic to arrive this week.
Once i have made sure that it assembles properly and balances properly then i will cut from carbon Fibre and test fly.

Then i will calculate the costs and offer for sale in one way or another.

BTW
The OWB shaft bearinsg are now the same size as the main shaft bearings.

Not sure what you meant by a counter bearing for the motor?
Do you mean an extra bearing for supporting the end of the motor shaft?

This would be difficult as the motor needs to move back and forth to adjust gear mesh.

Will keep you all posted on the development front

Ben
