This is my first attempt at a full coverage 3d printable pod. It prints sort of folded open with a living hinge that is actually quite sturdy despite its appearance. It is designed around a 20x20 stack, Runcam Split Mini, and an 18x18 gps with long range in mind. Immortal T mounts acrorss the rear legs and room for Crossfire Nano or R9 Mini in the end of the tail,, but it will take an R9 Slim in the neck. Originally designed around the Unify, I was having trouble with mine, so I crammed a Mach 2 up there. It works fine but I'll be revising the design to better fit a larger vtx. It can carry a Gopro Session securely if that's preferable to the Split. I want to flesh out the compartments to fit everything more securely, make the neck a little thicker inside, make the cam angle adjustable, and a few other things.

This is a work in progress. I will upload it to thingiverse when complete.

Do you have any issues with jello in your split footage? I have been hearing a lot of issues people have with the system now are down to that and I wonder how your mount is working out?

I had terrible jello. Replacing the lens with the RC23M solved it for me. Now only a bent prop or other actual vibration issue will cause jello.

Awesome work with the print.  Can your ESC handle those motors and 5048 props?  I'm always interested in compact 4in1 options.

yeah it does great! i can punch it for a good long time. I fly pretty calmly most of the time though.

The Rotor Riot CL1 is a community collaborated design based loosely on the popular ImpulseRC Alien and the Martian II. It's a low-budget freestyle frame with thick 5mm x 20mm arms, so it should take quite a beating. Additionally it provides 20mm mounting in the rear for a VTX which is a nice touch. It's very easy to build and perfect for a first build. The parts I chose for this build are a balance..

The EV200D is Eachine's long awaited follow-up to their budget oriented EV100. These offer a much larger 42 degree field of view (FOV) on 16:9 720p LCoS displays. This is the second goggle to utilize the LCoS technology behind the failed Topsky F7X. Traditionally FPV goggles use LCD displays, so LCoS is unproven, but Eachine did a great job implementing the technology. Features DVR HDMI input 42..
