This is an attachment so you can use your iPhone 4s and the Clinometer app http://plaincode.com/products/clinometer/ as a RC heli rotor blade pitch gauge.


Print out the parts and bolt together with M3 x 10mm and M3 x 18mm socket head cap screws.

Note: this is designed to work with a naked iPhone. No cases, screen guard. It's a nice snug fit to keep down on errors. There is an internal channel in the top clamp part for rubber bands, but it doesn't really need it.

The "pg Phone Mount Main v2" file has a small rectangular piece. Print that part out and cut that piece off and bolt to the front of the Mount main part.

UPDATE 2: I change the STL files so they have the orientation that gave me the best results when I printed. I printed them with 100 micron layer height with Rep G with Sailfish firmware.

UPDATE: I just realized that I uploaded the Clamp Back part (pg_Blade_Clamp_Back_v2.sldprt) as a Solidworks 2009 part file: not very useful unless you have Solidworks. I will upload the STL file later, unless someone can convert it for me and maybe send it to me some how.
