    Hmmm. I’ve been using tapatalk and it lets you select the size when posting.

  2. Screen shots are low res and I hate using tapatalk, I use the normal site, even on my phone

    I think the issue is they have the maximum file size set to low. My phone pics range from 2 to 6 mb each

    Version 2.3 is better, more tweaking needed though.

  4. I had to turn my camera down to get the files small enough to upload. Some 3D printed and airbrushed N scale goodies

    Pretty satisfied with how it fits with the battery. Not sure how I feel about battery vibration protection though. It fits snug. I will have to redesign it from scratch to make room for foam or Velcro.
    Also a lot of weight being hung by four screws, small bolts would be ok though I think.
    The NoBS A123 pack is pvc wrapped and heatshrink overtop. Unlike most which are just pvc wraped. So it’s a little thicker too.

    Been working on a receiver holder for a Futaba R7014SB. The idea is that I can put craft foam on the sides and 1/4” Dubro foam under the receiver. Then you can glue the tray or Velcro it to the plane. Took me about 4-5hours to draw up, prototype and make a version two which looks good to me.

    If I may suggest why would you not use tabs on it just like a servo with rubber grommets and servo screws to hold the holder down then you will not need the sponges.
    Must say it does look good.

    Good Point! The answer is I really didn't think about it. If I find a suitable grummet for the job, I may transition my designs to incorporate that mounting method. Thanks for the input, always appreciated! I must say I hate vibration though!

    Why would the grommets from a servo not work. They are able to hold hundreds ozone’s of torque from servo power.
