Crazyradio housing by foosel May 5, 2013

Description

This is a housing for the [Crazyradio USB dongle](http://wiki.bitcraze.se/projects:crazyradio:index) which is part of the [Crazyflie quadrocopter](http://wiki.bitcraze.se/projects:crazyflie:index) kit by [Bitcraze](http://www.bitcraze.se/).

Just print, drop the PCB into the bottom part (with the little ledge inside for the PCB to sit on) and close the case with the top lid.

**Version 1.1** adds rounded corners and edges for a better haptic, latching mechanism to hopefully improve long term pressure fit of both halves, some optimized measurements and an optional Bitcraze Logo "etched" into the top.

Well done, thanks!

Fantastic little case! Just what the doctor ordered.

Note: my radio board (rev D) didn't quite fit, although it was real close. However, once I adjusted usb_relative_z from 0 to 1 mine fit snuggly in its case. I used crazyradio-case-v1.1.scad (http://www.thingiverse.com/dow...

There are plenty of "USB cap" things already designed like http://www.thingiverse.com/thi... or http://www.thingiverse.com/thi...

Nicely done... a very good fit! Now I just need to get better at flying :)

I have a Feature request: Would you make a cover for the USB portion? Just a push-on bit? And check out my bumper cage: http://www.thingiverse.com/thi... It may help save your Crazyflie or pet.

It has already extended my fly time before rescuing the Crazyflie by about 1 mintue. ;-)

You mean like a "dust cover" for the usb plug if you are not using it?

And cool bumper cage! How much does it shave off available flight time? Since I seem to finally have gotten the hang of handling the Crazyflie I've seriously cut down on extra weight though, NERF dart cushions only, currently training to give full speed in one direction and then air breaking just before the furniture, damn fun and works :D

Very nice! One of the first thoughts when unboxing the Crazyflie was that I needed to design a housing for the radio! Happy that you beat me to it, will print one soon.

Nice - Just got mine on 5/4 and was thinking of shrink wrap but, since you've gone to the trouble I won't waste your efforts. Thanks!!!! Have Fun Crazyflie'n!
