So building a quadrocopter from scratch HAS a lot of decision making, and I need some input on the material choice.
I have short listed Aluminum and Carbon Fiber for the Arms and support of the Quadrocopter. I am a little short on cash to experiment with both of them.
So considering that I have enough money to buy either of those, and assuming that I have access to general tools like a Table Saw, Horizontal Band Saw, CNC Router and a Water jet.
What would be a better material to work with
I will be deciding the specs around the frame so as to allow me some design liberty. So right now, my goal is to assemble a very durable, as-light-as possible frame, which can withstand a lot of experimentation on the electrical side.
