I did a thing that printed out pretty good for me. I'm not exactly a cad cam guy but I can poke my through making a simple box.

This is intended to clip onto a backpack setup I use to 'bug-out' on those opportune chances to fly.

This is a pretty common meter box. Let me know if you have a need for this.
Fly like your mad at it.

I think I'm about done with the tray design now anyway.
Have done away with the velcro and have retrofitted a clamp on the one I printed out over night which holds the transmitter in perfectly. I just used an M4 bolt I had around and printed a handle for the nut. A small indent on the inside of the clamp grips the handle and holds it securely into place - it doesn't even need to be very tight to be secure!

I've modified the source now though to include a vertical slot and it uses a shoe with a 45 degree angle to hold on to the handle and uses the same bolt and "wing nut" arrangement for adjustment.

It pretty much makes it a universal tray now for radios of this sort of size so if anyone fancies a go with it just let me know and I'll get the files uploaded
Whoever said nothing is impossible had obviously never tried slamming a revolving door...

Tempted to drop it up onto Thingiverse and see if anyone has a go with it - would have a go again my self but can't be bothered with the 8 hour print just to replace what I've already got and it's working well

Hey all,
I've added a few parts to thingiverse as well. The motor mount is a copy of the one already there, but added "RCPowers" tagging to make it easier to find, along with an RCPowers control horn. For anyone looking to show off your work of art and free up work space, check out the wall mount. Mount has a wide curved resting surface especially designed for V5 parkjets and uses a couple of wire nails to attach to the wall.

Search "RCPowers" in Thingiverse and all 3 should show up.

If it wasn't for Thingiverse or various other online archives - I'd be lost ! I've tried designing / creating 3D objects but failed dismally ...

But I did find out one thing ... it is not necessary to actually program a combining of two objects into a single file. You can in fact load two objects onto the bed ... move one to the other so they touch as you need ... printer then treats it effectively as one object.

My Mossie is getting the Merlin Exhausts .... the FT Merlin exhausts at 50% to 60%
correction ... 70 - 75% scale seem ok.
I'll fly anything if I can launch it ! Youtube : solentlifeuk
