Best of Both Worlds

In my last hexacopter post (http://xnaron.com/2012/08/12/folding-hexacopter/) I was torn on whether to build a folding or non-folding version of the hexacopter.  A lightbulb went off shortly after making the post and I decided I could make a single frame plate set to support both.

This is what I came up with

This will support the pieces for a folding and non-folding frame.  I gave it a couple of coats on both sides with the flat black spray paint I used last time.  I am going to use the same process to laser off the paint and then etch it in ferric chloride.

Here are some pics after a coat and then a second.
