I cut the first set of parts today.
Sample G10 parts first to be sure everything is right before cutting carbon fiber.

Great design!

What are the funky servo brackets holding the tibia servos in place, custom 3D prints?

Thanks Matt.. ;)
Yes all white parts are custom plastic printed.
I have made some test with http://www.shapeways.com and the quality is real good.

It's not like other printed plastic. More like layered powder or something like that.

Here is a flight controller casing i design and made print there:

And here you can see the part it will require for the MiniHEX

Looks like a really good service, what's the finish like? Is it expensive?

It's sell by the quantity of material so you have to design the parts with the less material possible.
The White is the cheapest of all.

The quality is good and the finish (For the white) is a bit textured.
You can see that it was a powder that has been use.

Here is the list of material
http://www.shapeways.com/materials

the complete set of parts on for the MiniHEX is 126$
Lot of parts and the top canopy is 30$ alone.
