3D Printed Racing Drone – Will It Survive?

In today’s video I 3D printed the Peon230 frame from Thingiverse, a FPV racing quadcopter frame. I was curious to know if PLA plastic would be tough enough to be used as a fast flying drone frame. I loved doing this video, and I hope you will enjoy watching it!

    Why does everyone in Sweden pronounce the English ‘z’ incorrectly as an ‘s’? It’s something very typical to Swedish people’s (otherwise very fine) English pronunciation. funny detail! Lol

    Whats the weight on these?

  6. Q Speed Racer on September 12, 2020 at 11:01 am

    Weight difference between carbon fiber frame and pla?

  7. Emmanuel Dipom on September 12, 2020 at 11:02 am

    Building things like this is what I like to do. Even lego projects are really fun.

  8. Flow__FPV on September 12, 2020 at 11:03 am

    That video showed me the world of FPV. Now, it’s my main-hobby for more than 2years. Thanks a lot 😊

    2:12 and the antenna=ears

  10. Catalin Zaharia on September 12, 2020 at 11:04 am

    I am surprised to see that I am not the only one who uses Spektrum for FPV :)))))))))

  11. Timothy Graupmann on September 12, 2020 at 11:05 am

    I crank up the PLA first layer temp to 265C or higher to get a real good contact so it doesn’t warp on the corners like that.

  12. Spicer_Up on September 12, 2020 at 11:07 am

    from where did you get the 3d photo of the nylon spacers?

  13. Dhruv Gupta on September 12, 2020 at 11:08 am

    Now let’s do the electronics me:😑

  14. Kay’shots on September 12, 2020 at 11:11 am

    Does it have altitude hold?

  15. Kieron McCarthy on September 12, 2020 at 11:15 am

    That was awesome

  16. Jan Hornyš on September 12, 2020 at 11:16 am

    I’d guess the arms got softer because of the heat form ESCs. Simple trick is to put a carbon fiber (or at least nylon) pad in between ESCs and motors and the arms to shield the arms from the emitted heat. 😉

  17. Flip Flop Farmer on September 12, 2020 at 11:16 am

    Freakin awesome. Did you ever try printing one with carbon fiber filament? Im gonna make one. looks so fun!

  23. myusernameislongerth on September 12, 2020 at 11:22 am

    what goggles are you using in the video? Definitely not the ones linked in the description.

  24. Ian on September 12, 2020 at 11:22 am

    Where did you find the spacer files?

  25. Aaron J on September 12, 2020 at 11:26 am

    So the props aren’t printed? I’m pretty new to all this. From what I understand it looks like the props aren’t printed. I really like your video especially the part where you showed the minimal insides of a drone.

  26. Aztrokidd on September 12, 2020 at 11:28 am

    I fw your channel !💯

  27. andrewfundo on September 12, 2020 at 11:28 am

    If you want a professional printed frame go for carbon fiber nylon, though you’ll need a special printer that can cut the fibers.
    The mid professional approach is nylon, next is ABS.
    Never use PLA, for nothing. It’s cheap crap.

  30. Gurcan Kesoglu on September 12, 2020 at 11:33 am

    Great video and thanks for sharing. Very inspiring. Do you happen to know where can I find the wiring diagram?

    he is like the European version of laser beam

  33. Evgeny Tilezhinsky on September 12, 2020 at 11:36 am

    Like if you are actually going to print this drone.

  34. Nishant Poudel on September 12, 2020 at 11:37 am

    lol this guy was alone and all the video recording he do from different angles, Hats off to you Myan. You deserve more likes.

  35. Kanakesh on September 12, 2020 at 11:37 am

    Bro you can keep suspension wheels for landing so it doesn’t get crashed. It moves forward only on land.

  36. Tamil a to z gang on September 12, 2020 at 11:38 am

    i want one with long range

  47. Pavel Víšek on September 12, 2020 at 11:49 am

    How much is the components without the 3d printed pieces?

  48. Emmanuel Dipom on September 12, 2020 at 11:50 am

    This is something that I like to see. I want to make one of these and this looks like it makes alote of power and takes alote of work.

  49. Jill Sampson on September 12, 2020 at 11:50 am

    I like polish
