Great design, can you upload a .stp file so I can make modificaitons to fit my own electronics?

This is fantastic! I want to make something very similar, but with a FPV camera mount. What CAD software did you use? Do you think it would be easy for me to modify using Sketchup?

Mrrocketman on Jun 12, 2013 said:

I used SolidEdge student version. So unfortunately I wouldn't be too much help on the Sketchup front. I'm fairly certain you can get plugins for Sketchup though that will import and export STL files. If there's a more common cad format like stp or something that sketchup can use, I can export it as that for you if you would like. Good luck!

I was thinking about designing something like this for my APM1.4 but putting it in the fuselage of my Bixler. It looks way better in the cockpit! Now it looks like I'll be saving up some money for a 3D printer and upgrading to an APM2.5. Great work!

It's stuff like this that gave me reason enough to build my 3D printer. This is what 3D printing is all about. Make anything. This is great, thank you.
