Hi, I share the simple instructions to create a frame for quadcopters, using the famous Lego technic.
The photo shows my setup:

  • brushed motors 8mm.
  • propellers 60mm.
  • Quanum Pico 32bit Brushed Flight Control Board.

But you can install whatever you want.

P.S. The gray brick on the front side, is used to mount the camera "FPV".

Step 1: The Lego Frame

  • black axles lenght 4 (lego dimensions)
  • gray axles lenght 7

Assemble the frame as shown.

To complete the frame, in addition to the lego shown in the pictures, we need a heatshrink of suitable diameter, (in my case diameter 13mm), and a doublesided tape.

Step 2: Motor Mount

  • Cut 1 pieces of heatshrink (lenght 15mm).
  • Cut 1 pieces of doublesided tape (15x5mm).
  • Applying double-sided adhesive on the lego part, and attach the engine, as shown in the picture.
  • Finally block with heatshrink.

repeat for the remaining motors.

Step 3: Final Assembling

Assemble the four motor-mounts as shown, and after all the electronics.

That's all.
(Sorry for my bad English)

enjoy it.


<p>Could you add some links for the lego parts?</p><p>How durable is that frame? have you crashed tested it???</p>
<p>nice work</p>
<p>cool cant wait to try it</p>
Plz! Make a instructable on how to make the FPV camera you showed. <br>And nice project! :)
<p>Thanks!</p><p>...sorry but I have little free time for my hobbies, I hope to do the instructions soon.</p>
I found a DIY page on how to make the same one as you used, but thanks
<p><font><font>simple, direct efficace, f&eacute;licitations.</font></font></p><p><font><font><font><font>Quel poids?</font></font></font></font></p>
<p>thank you!</p><p>the weight of the frame is: 11.8g</p><div> the quadcopters fully assembled with 750 mAh battery: 57.8g<br>(added photos)<br></div>
<p><font><font>j'oubliais, expliquer comment relier radio commande &agrave; la carte &eacute;lectronique ferait de cet instructable un must.</font></font></p>
<p>I really wish you had put the details of this cool project on here. It seems kind of incomplete</p>
<p>Once again an example on how versatile Lego can be used. Can you add a short video of the flying copter?</p>
<p>Cute! Which controller and batteries did you use?</p>
Thanks.<br>FC Quanum Pico 32bit.<br>Turnigy nano-tech 750mah 1S.
<p>Nice quadcopter. I love how you made it with lego pieces.</p>
<p>thanks a lot!</p><p>...and compliments to you!</p>
