Sparrow B.Bailey version added with micro axii, No frsky antenna holes.. This is a pod under construction, hence I have not printed it myself or even run it through the slicer for sanity check :/
UPDATE2: Upon request I added antenna tube holes, I hope these gets clear of the Prop and the oncoming gates :)
UPDATE: Final version is up, 2 versions. One with airholes for races that never start in time and one for the rainy/snowy days :D
I never know what angle I run on the cams but I think around 50-55 degree. lower angle should be fine. Possibly the top of the pod will limit the view. Need to flighttest that.
20mm standoffs I use, hobbywing stack and a gigantic XF receiver. Mach2 vtx and axii antenna(not lumenier). Right now the cam hits the vtx as the vtx is mounted abit high. On the sideholes I see there are holes into the canopy in the slicer but I dont see it on the printed part. Strength wise I dont think this matter. Pictures from PLA print. I recommend printing in Nylon or Flex. I have used Hobbyking Flex with Good result durability wise and vibrationwise for the cam. Recommended!
There is only pod for hs1177 gigantic cameras for the Arkangel, designed by who I think is the best pod designer in the world, Andy Shen(https://www.thingiverse.com/andyshen/designs)
So I had to make my own, I have 0 experience in making these kind of things...
Wanted something different and something roomy and not so slim in the back as that always have haunted me with all these pods. Also the axii antenna I wanted to integrate abit more to get the airflow better(like that is noticed in flight Haha!)
Though 20+ versions later where only a few even made it to the printer I somehow ended up looking pretty similar to the fullsize version :/ Not sure of the looks though.. looks abit like.. well..
Anyhow I made this from scratch.. Me.. :D no copy.. from scratch..
It's not good looking but works. Printed in Nylon 0.4 nozzle and 0.2 layerheight. 30%infill right now but havent flown it yet. rain,snow,work,illness..
I still struggle with corner lift using the nylon but everything seem to fit though my podlegs obviously become bent.. Not sure if I should give up nylon and go for flex instead.. gaaahh..
Let me know if you like it plz. :)
