Introduction: Waterproof, Crash-proof, Homemade Drone Airframe

Game of Drones Ep. 2 - Indestructible Drone Design & Testing

"Ride 'em hard and put 'em away wet.  They're just drones"

The Game of Drones team make a drone that can fly in a rainstorm, get hit with paintballs, land in water and fall out of the sky over and over again without sustaining damage.  It's a whole new paradigm in amateur UAV design and is the first true indestructible drone for the masses.  Made with little more than garage tools, each frame costs less than $50 and can out-perform many other frames costing $1000 of dollars.

Is there any way for you to put up a 3D scan of the airframe on here? I would love to see how this performs when 3D printed.

Can you give an estimate on the weight of these frames? Are they lighter or heavier than the frames costing $1000's of dollars?
