When I received my Founders Kit, I knew I needed a display stand for it. I had an idea and started this design some time ago, but it eventually moved to the back burner to make way for more pressing designs and just life in general. After seeing on the FT forum the 3D printed coin, I knew I needed to finish it. A couple of long nights later I finally have something I am very proud to share. The ideology of Josh and the whole FT crew of "Fun, Family, and Fellowship" truly is a way to live. If you make one, snap a picture and leave a make for myself and everyone to see!
I'm including two different backs. The first one I printed didn't have the "The Home Of Flite Test" come out right so I went back and altered it but haven't printed the second one.

Supports touching the build plate are needed for a couple of spots, like under the propellers. May not be entirely necessary but recommended.
Total Material: ~22.25 meters of filament, ~66 grams
I used a M3 screw to attach the two pieces. The top piece is threaded and mine went in perfect. If you don't have a spare screw like I did, a dab of hot glue will work fine. I left a bit of room in the base for the hot glue and added the screw hole later. They do seat well with each other but I wanted something solid for it.
