On December 9th, the new frame design (Frame_V3) was finished. This implemented a triangular strut design with modified platforms to fit the struts. New fasteners were also needed to attach the new struts. These snap-lock pins are much easier to work with and will hopefully be easier to print.
December 10th was spent modifying the new struts and platforms to reduce weight and volume of material. The outer end of the struts were modified for the motor mounts and blade guards that will be used for safety reasons. The platforms took on a hexagonal framework to reduce material, but also to maintain stability. We are still discussing changes to the battery platform, but the design is unlikely to change.
In addition to continued design of the frame, we are planning the next stage of the online portion of the project by searching for low cost web hosting. We would not be making our own site until after the first prototype is completed, but it is always good to plan ahead.
