Part Specifications & Variants:
Dual GPS & Buzzer Mount:
Designed to fit standard sized 12 mm diameter 5v electronic buzzer and Beitian 180 GPS unit.
VTX SMA Antenna Mount & Cable Guide:
Designed to fit standard SMA connector and to guide battery cable. Variant has reduced thickness at section where SMA screws to piece to provide some extra room for use of washer/locknut. The thicker piece has a depth of 1.92 mm and the thinner piece has depth of 1.19 mm. The cable guide has a diameter of 13.14 mm.
Fitment & Installation:
All pieces are designed to accommodate as far as possible golden proportions and apart from being functional pieces are experiments in the use of this mathematical principle in design.
Clearance has been left globally at 0.2 mm to ensure a tight fit and parts are designed to fit using the existing hardware on the frame. You can use the provided photographic images to guide you in installation. If you find the fitment of the GPS unit tight, a light degree of flexing will allow you to pop the part in. Wires can be run straight out of the slots provided.
The VTX SMA Antenna Mount & Cable Guide mounts via the rear standoffs and can be flipped upside down to accommodate a top or bottom mount battery configuration on your vehicle, particularly if you do not want to use the Dual GPS & Buzzer Mount.
The pictured pieces were printed in PLA @ 30% Quarter Cubic infill with 2 wall lines at 55mm/sec with 0.3 mm layer height.
The VTX SMA Antenna Mount & Cable Guide was printed without supports whilst the Dual GPS & Buzzer Mount was printed with Grid Line supports with a density of 12.5%. This gave supports that adequately supported the print and that were easy to remove, it may be possible to print this piece without supports however further experimentation will be necessary to formally confirm this.
You can use the provided screenshot to help guide you in orientation of parts for printing.
Appreciation & Sharing:
To anyone who prints any of the pieces I also wanted to extend my thanks for taking your time to consider and use my work, printing does require your effort and time and that is appreciated. I hope you enjoy using the pieces and that you have a good time too.
This is my personal work and I share it to allow others the opportunity to enjoy the hobby with greater ease, so that they can maximize their enjoyment and not have to go through the effort of having to expend time and effort designing something themselves. Also to provide those who may not be proficient in design with something to use.
I don’t directly like to ask for anything for use of my designs as I believe that this hobby does good things for people’s well-being and that is something that I would like to promote. Not everyone has funds to spare and so putting my work online free of charge is my way of helping someone out.
A tip is always a welcomed and appreciated gift that will go towards helping support me in my design work, if you cannot afford to give one that is not a problem at all. I would rather someone be happy, enjoy themselves and make connections, that makes the world a better place.
I just kindly ask that if you use my work and find it beneficial to you that you take a little bit of your time to share your make. It gives me great satisfaction to know that my effort was put to good use and also encourages others to use pieces.
Feedback is also welcome; it helps me to improve the design to make them more usable.
