I just found this design today, I like what you did. I downloaded the .stl files, are they all correct sizes for 3d printing? I checked the diameter of one of the center pieces is showed 73.63mm. Is that the correct diameter or will I need to scale them to another size?
I like your design, I think I am going to build it. I have been looking for the arrows you specified and have not found any online. I did however find some 7mm carbon fiber tube with a 1mm wall thickness on ebay. Will that work in place of the arrow shafts? I also found some 8mm carbon fiber tube with a 2mm wall thickness.
Easy 3D Printing
When you print your parts do you use solid infill or something less than solid? I have been playing with cura and slic3r. I need some guidance before I send the files off to the 3dhub I am using to have them printed. I suppose my best choice in the long run would be to buy a 3d printer for myself.

3D Printing Class
Hello, I have a question for you. What do you recommend for 3D design software to draw parts to be 3D printed? I have used CAD/CAM packages for years but never any 3D. I am going to get your design printed perhaps next week, it has been submitted to someone for printing. I think I would like to try my hand at designing some of my own stuff.
Is the cover for the GPS supposed to be a separate part? I can find the head cover but not the cover for the GPS compartment if the files I downloaded from thingverse and sent to the 3D Hub for printing. If you can send that to me I would appreciate it or I can resend the files to the person who is going to print them.Thanks.
I like this, I have downloaded all of the files and looked at them using 3dsmax. I will be investigating what it will take to get the parts printed using one of the 3d hubs. I like your design and want to thank you for all the work you have put into designing this. I was looking for a larger foldable quadcopter but I like this one. Can you provide some dimensions such as center to center on the motor shafts?ThanksJohn
Followed the link above for the spring, which one did you choose?

Good Evening,Nice project, what thickness Lexan did you use? I need / want a folding quadcopter, the H designs really interest me. I may use Lexan as you did or possible G10 fiberglass.Thanks
I have read your instructable, looked at the Xcompact site and downloaded the instructions and drawings from instructables. What is the status if your later versions of this? I have been looking for a good DIY folding quadcopter, this seems to be the best one I have found for my needs. I would prefer to build my own frame instead of purchasing something that only meets part of my desires.ThanksJohn
I just downloaded the .pdf for your instructable and from that I found the link to the .dxf file. I really like your design and appreciate your effort to design and document your build. I have two questions for you, Did you design this in inches or metric measurements? The other question is can you give me a dimention for one of the square or rectangular parts so I can properly scale the drawing? I would like to have a friend of mine laser cut the parts from G10 or baltic birch plywood.Thanks,John Guenther, Anderson Indiana U.S.A.
