I wanted to have really clean lines with central battery holder and protector that could also function as landing gear. While I was in the process of updating I also dropped in a Naze32 board.
Naze32 in a 3D printed case mounted via 3M double sided tape.
I used the mounting holes on the Fortis frame as the mount points for my anti jello system. It was a simple case of altering the holes and printing a pair. I first started with bottom plates that I had left over. This soon changed as I integrated the battery holder and legs into the design.
New mounts bolted to the frame.
A couple of test fits with the older base mounts.
Both the gimbal and the static mounts were tested. At this point I decided to change the bottom mount to the integrated battery holder legs. That way I could also remove the legs from the tricopters legs. The new design also provided some protection to the camera/gimbal on hard landings that usually broke the zip-tied landing gear.
The new design had supported base plate and a battery tray for the zippy 3700s. I also printed a Velcro strap battery holder as the battery fastening system.
Here is the first design mounted ready for testing.
The design worked really well, It gives the tricopter a nice thin profile which I like. Very stable landing gear platform and provides a good platform for video.
I plan to do some test video soon. But at the moment I am too busy crashing my new flipping quad.
