The base frame is the central component of our hexacopter AF6-800. Since its diagonal motor axes distance is 800mm, propellers with a maximum diameter of 15'' can be used.
The middle of the frame consists of the two centerplates which ensure the copter's stability. Six arms are attached with plastic boom clamps in between both plates, the ends of which are mounted with the fastening devices for the motors. Motors with a breadboard of between 16 and 25mm can be fastened here. The plastic clamps ensure that the inevitable motor vibrations are dampened as much as possible.
The centerplates are designed in such a way to minimize the overall weight through recesses while simultaneously leaving enough surface area to securely fasten the electrical components.
An additional plate, mounted above the upper centerplate, increases stability even more and protects the valuable electronics against possible damage.
Both the arms as well as all plates consist of CFRP pressed at high temperatures. This material provides for maximum solidity while remaining at an extremely low weight.
This frame comes with a complete mounting kit. All screws and nuts are made of type A4 stainless steel.
The nuts used here are exclusively so-called press nuts. Using special tools they are being pressed into the CFRP-plates which allows for easy assembly without the use of screw wrenches or pliers.
The lower centerplate already contains all of the press nuts that are necessary to assemble the components in all possible configurations.
An overall weight of only 465g, including the mounting screws needed for the motors, makes this copter unrivaled in terms of its light weight. It is therefore an ideal base to be utilized as a carrier platform for copters under 5kg.
