ghostCrab

Per suggestion of a fellow FPVC member phreakin I decided to build a crab. Have only flown a few packs so far and it feels like I'm going ludicrous speed compared to my shrike racer build. This build, like most all other builds (at least the builds that I do...) presented its own unique challenge in mounting/sizing the stack. Apparently there is an additional hardware kit that you can purchase along w/ the crab for a few bucks more, but alas, they were sold out. So, I was able to retrofit a combination of nylon standoffs/nuts with the super squishy 7mm anti-vibration rubber/metal standoffs to get the stack up to the correct height. Would love to be able to modify the camera mount carbon for smaller camera builds like the mini and micro. As you can see in the photos there is a decently sized gap and the entire stack has ample space between the components. However, there is an actual benefit from having extra space in between the stack layers. Cooling. The most often overlooked factor in builds and likely the result of many premature failures.

Looking good! You should be able to use the stock Runcam Swift Mini bracket to mount your camera, I added the hole in the top specifically for that. That'll get rid of the hot glue solution.

Also, if you still need a 30.5mm hardware kit, DM me and I'll send you one directly.
