uBLOX NEO-6M case: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:129414
Telemetry Radio Cases: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:165889


Print top and bottom parts. 3 perimeters, 3 solid top and bottom layers, and 30% infill for studiness.
Adhere your control borad to the case bottom with some double-sided foam tape. Assembly the two case halves with #4 X 5/8" wood screw or just zip-tie the holes.

If you have altitude holding issues, you can try putting a small cotton or poly stuff ball over the barometer.

Hello, First of all.... great work!!!!
Now I have a little question... I saw that you added an extra walls in the middle of the top box... that is to protect the barometer? should we add cotton on it? did you tested it with light and wind?

You should definitely add a cotton or polyester wad to get the best performance from the barometer. From my experience, with the APM out in the open, without the cotton, altitude hold is unstable.

Brilliant design and fit, thank you

Hello! Thats perfect, many thanks!

Hi, my boards wewe too tight to get in. Am i doing it wrong

Hello, which dimension is too tight? I design the case for the HKpilot, the Hobby King version, with extra bit of space. Maybe print it with a bit larger scale factor for your version?

Awesome! Just what I needed. Although I was all psyched up and ready to cad one myself. sadface. Keep making awesome things :)

perfect timing. Glad I always check thingiverise before I draw something up myself. Thanks and great work!
