A printed power pod for your FT designs! Don't worry about cutting out any more firewalls or folding foamboard; just hit print! I have tested this on the following FT planes: Bloody Baron, Simple Cub, Nutball, Bloody Wonder. Versawing, FT Delta. Leave a comment if it works for you on other aircraft.
This is slightly shorter than the FT power pod plans, but is designed to print in one piece vertically, with the firewall facing down, on most printers.
Includes stl file with and w/o holes for motor mounting. Holes are 4mm at standard 16mm and 19mm widths.
Also has cutout in bottom of pod for XT60 connector pass through.
10% fast honeycomb at 90* offset
Print with PLA or PLA+
Print with firewall flat on print bed. For a solid firewall, make the bottom 11 layers solid if your software supports this.
The included gcode is with the following settings:
Layer height: .30 (works well with .20 also, but adds 1hr to print time)
Bottom solid layers: 11 (this is for a solid firewall when printed vertically)
Outline perimeter shells: 1
Top solid layers: 3
Infill: 10% fast honeycomb with 90 offset
Extruder temp: 210
Bed temp: 75*
Support material: Yes (probably not needed since it is only for the XT60 connector hole.
Drill your own holes in the sides for barbecue skewers to pass through, since this differs for different designs.
Dispose of support material in XT60 pass through if desired.
