Redesigned Nose - Naza Version w/ Round GPS & D4R-II Rx
« on: September 12, 2017, 05:17:35 AM »
Hello all.

I was looking for this part for a few days and posted some questions about it, even messaged CDR about it... but to no avail.   I got impatient and decided to tackle it myself, forgive me if it has already been done but I thought in case anyone else was looking for the same part I would share it here.  Hope someone else can find it useful.  I am almost done with the initial build of my clone, after first test flight I will disassemble and work on the bondo and finish while documenting it all to share.

One side note about this file, I did have to do some sanding to the GPS opening to get it to fit.  It needs about another 1/2 mm to the diameter which I will do in the near future and then update the files if anyone is even needing them.  And of course the GPS is removed from the casing before installing.  I have it installed in mine though and is working just fine.  Enjoy.

Because I have noticed that a few people have downloaded this since I posted it, I have tried to modify the file a little bit so that the GPS fits a little bit easier.... this is proving hard which is also most likely why it wasnt done this way in the first place.  That being said, I did make a modification in which a full millimeter was added to the diameter.  It looks like it should work ok but needs testing and feedback if at all possible.

This is an alpha test version of the file.  I have not even printed it yet myself because I am saving for more filament.  I am only posting this in hopes that someone will be kind enough to test it out.  If you are not willing to adjust print settings or possibly waste a print, use the original file which IS usable.

abandoning this configuration because of newly acquired xm+ Rx.  xm+ is a full range receiver with comparable range to the D4R-II.  Only difference is the lack of the smart port, so no telemetry, however there is a way to transmit RSSI via the channel 8 or 16 through sbus so if your FC supports it there is that.  I think totally worth it considering the size comparison.  It weighs just over a gram or something crazy.. definitely under 2 grams.
