The SpinnerDrone combines the Hubsan H107C Quadcopter, along with a ceramic bearing, to make a unique flying drone that can spin on your fingers when the battery is dead.
Included here is the polycarbonate frame only. To complete the build, you'll need parts from a Hubsan H107C quadcopter, as well as VXB 608 ceramic bearing. Both of those links point towards Amazon and are affiliate links. They can also be purchased elsewhere, though note that the quadcopter must be an H107C or have equivalent motors to fit correctly.
With the popularity of spinners, there's a disturbing lack of spinners that can actually fly under remote control. This design aims to solve this problem by providing a frame that can mount parts from a small Hubsan Drone, as well as a ceramic bearing.
Though listed as a "SpinnerDrone" it should be noted that this can be used as a spinner, as a drone, or both. When used without a bearing, the frame itself is significantly lighter than what comes on the H107C, and is made out of extremely tough polycarbonate.
Note that these will come in the post-machined state and may require some deburring with Dremel tool/file to knock off holding tabs etc and will come in a protective film (see image with polycarbonate frames with and without film). Also, due to manufacturing tolerances, you may have to use hot glue to secure bearing and or motors. Finally, shown in the video and images, one of the arms doesn't have a slot cut out. Initially, I thought this would help with weight distribution, but after a design change is unnecessary. All four sides will be slotted.
As always, fly safe and spin safe!™*
