I spent the last 2 months designing/testing this 3D printed brushed micro quad frame, and I am finally happy with the result and it’s now available for purchase :)
This frame is printed by myself so I can ensure the quality of this product when shipped out.
I built this frame with the Lulfro FC and some 25mW FPV combo. It also works very well with the hardware from the MultiFlite kit, and Beef FC setup. Take a look at my micro quad parts list for more ideas :)
- This frame is for 8.5mm brushed motors
- Motor to motor distance is 110mm
- Weights only 6.4g!
- I used the simple ‘one piece’ design, no assembling required, and very easy to setup

Don’t worry about your FC and other electronics being “exposed”, your motors and props should be tough enough to protect them. In the last 2 months I have been testing this frame on 2 of my quads, crashed into concrete, trees, computer monitors…. no damages at all! (only a few props :) )
This is one of the most rigid 3D printed brushed micro frames I have experience, which gives you the best flight performance possible. It’s also very crash resistant, mine crashed hundreds of times and still no sign of breaking.
It’s also very light weight. At only 6.4g it’s even lighter than most of the carbon fibre frames.
There are many ways of mounting your FPV gear, let your imaginations run wild :) below are 2 examples of me mounting 2 different FPV setups. Feel free to modify this frame in anyway :)
I will include 2 “C-block” for the mini camera, one 3mm tall, one 4mm tall. Use whatever suits you. I recommend putting a little piece of double sided tape underneath, so it doesn’t slide around :)
You can also cut the front flat bit off and “hang” the camera on the front.
I recommend mounting the battery on the bottom with a piece of velcro, possibly with the help of a rubber band too :) but I sometimes just stick the battery on the velcro and it holds well enough most of the times.
Material and 3D Printer
The frames are printed with the Ultimaker 2+ using PolyMaker PolyMax filament, which has excellent impact resistance and mechanical properties, up to 9 times stronger than normal PLA. Each frame takes about an hour to make.
you can choose between red and white, or you can have both colours in the same order (only available in orders of multiple frames if you choose both colour in a single frame order, I will give you random colour). If you order 3 frames and choose both colours, please specify how many red/white you want, otherwise it would be random.
Sorry only black is available at this point.
