New Airframe and Canopy Design
« on: March 28, 2019, 12:49:27 AM »
Trying something new. . . .

Some of the previous canopy designs were extremely thin.
Not enough hard points for additional equipment (LED/Spotlight/Thermal/Additional FPV Camera)
Didn't allow for a gimbals
Limited Battery Configuration sizes
Better GPS location

I rebuilt a canopy design that would have a much stronger bottom section, slot for gimbal, high GPS mount, 1 or 2 battery configuration. In the process of printing  . . . will update

I'd be very interested in that!
I bought the other version, and it's totally hopeless to print.

Wow, this thing looks great. Any chance you're ready to release the STL?

Hi all,
I doubled up the canopy thickness by going into Tinkercad and importing the part, copy & then overlay the original with your copy, then adjust the overlay until it just exceeds the boundary of the original, when printed the walls merge during the process.

ok, i'm doubling the weight, but well worth it having the durability.

hope this helps.

regards
