Pitot tube holder (RVJET)

Pitot tube holder (RVJET) 3d printed Mechanical parts
Pitot tube holder designed to fit the DIYdrones, Rangevideo and Eagletree etc pitot tube. It is two parts that is glued together. It is designed some extra tolerances because some pitot tubes are thicker and have glue on them etc. For installation in EPO foam use a 10mm sharp drill and make an elongated hole. The pitot tube is glued in place. For optimal performance make sure the tube is placed in a free airflow unaffected by the airframes boundary layer. The picture below show an early version that has later been improved. It was designed for the RVJET but can be used on most foam models.

@quadcopterjohn I like his designs more then the more usual CL/SPW. At least if I'm to make them myself. Here's a tutorial: http%3A%2F%2Fwww.truerc.net%2Fimages%2Ftutorials%2FFan%2520tutorial.pdf If you're buying CP-antennas I can recommend Circular Wireless. He makes SPW-antennas but their quality and performance is second to none.
