Ciao con quale materiale hai stampato? grazie

I've printed them in ABS mostly, but PETG would be a good material for this as well.

Is there a version of this without the arms? (the tinkercad link expired so I couldn't check) I want to see if this could be modded to use as a cover for an 5-6 inch quad, (maybe the tyro99) thanks!

There's not, but I can definitely renew the tinkercad link! I didn't realize it expires. Thanks for letting me know and I look forward to seeing the remix! It should be pretty easy to do that in tinkercad since the hollowed out shell is a separate piece that I just grouped with everything else.

No problem! The Tinkercad link should work. Follow the link and there should be a button to the right that says "Sign up to Copy" if you're not signed in to Tinkercad. If you click that button, it will give you the option to sign in as well. Once you're signed in, you should be able to copy it and "Tinker" it. Let me know if you have trouble getting to it. Can't wait to see what you can come up with!

Got mine printed and painted. My Gremlin kit comes tomorrow. Have the xm+ on the bench. Can't wait to build it up. I'll post when it is done. Thanks man!

Awesome!!!!! Can't wait to see it!!!!! I am planning on a few design changes in the future: Larger "neck hole" for the camera, stronger arms, and better battery support. Let me know if you see any other changes that need made! :)

Those sound like good changes. Definitely stronger arms. It did survive a concrete to grass crash on my first FPV maiden though. So they are tough. But i know that's the first thing I'm going to break. Did a few flips and the HF magnets held which is awesome. For some reason on my print, with the shell on it rattles really loudly once i take off. I thought it was one of my escs touching a motor but when i removed the lid it was quiet in flight. I may try to add some thin insulation from the two parts. It's really weird though because it fits down snug. Not sure what the noise is.

Oh btw, the Hyperion 550mah 2s graphene lipo fits this thing perfectly. I bought two rmrc orange lipos and they don't fit at all. Too wide. I have some Tattu 450mah's en route. Hoping they fit as well as the hyperion.

already seen it on insta, this is sick bro. well done

Thanks! It's been a fun project to work on in the evenings to unwind a bit. Already seeing things that could use some improvement so, like most of my creations, it's a work in progress! :)

This is awesome! From the pictures it looks like the camera is pointing down?

Thank you! It's actually angled up a bit. Right now I can only get it to about 20 degrees max, but you may be able to get more depending on what camera you use. There are a couple of tiny little notches in the base that the listed camera keys into. I just use some strong, double-sided foam tape to hold it against the vertical support.
