This is an improved version of the Multi Wii 2.0 Pro (Ready to Fly Quads) Hard case. the walls are 1mm thick with 4 x 3mm pegs the board will slip over. The lid has recessed holes to clamp the FC board in place inside the case. The lid will also snap in place for hardware free access. There are 2 mounting holes 45mm holes apart for a 3mm screw to secure it to your quad copter frame. You will need 2 - 3x6mm screws for mounting depending on the thickness of the frame you are using. I've added 4x mounting points 45mm apart to allow for mounting the U Bloc GPS unit directly above the FC board. I will be designing a GPS housing too.

Making final modifications.

I'm not affiliated nore do I work for ready to fly quads. I'm just a huge fan of their products and I'm desinging parts to make my quad look cooler and more finished while protecting my eletronics.

v1.1 - Design complete, reviewing for modifcation.
v1.2 - Model passes print constraints, and has been printed.
v1.3 - First 3D print has been inspected for quality, fit, and function.
v1.4 - Item tested and modifications made if needed.
v1.5 - It has been printed, tested, and adjustments has been made. Items meets design intent and function when printed with default material.
v1.6 and up - modifications to enhance function or additions to design.

@abavuso I will definitely be taking a look at those programs you've mentioned! I've tried AutoCad 2014, and although it's an awesome program it's too advanced for me. I've never heard of Google Sketchup, or 123D, or eMachineshop. I hope they have Linux / Ubuntu equivalents. And yes for simple 1-offs it's definitely the most inexpensive way to go.

@Jesterbaze I wouldn't mind helping you. I learnd 3D design in College over 10 years ago in 3D Studio max... hadn't touched the stuff since. Right now I'm self taught and use basic software like 123D and Google Sketchup. I'm currently teaching myself autocad 14 on a student lisence. Once I get proficient at autocad 14 I'll talk the plung. A nother simple program that you can use for laser cutting 2D stuff is eMachineshop. I use their software to design quad copter descks and rock crawler chassis then I have the parts cut from delrin or ABS by Pololu Robotics. I mainly got into the 3D printing part to make the organic shapes that I can get from 2D and for 1 off's it's the most inexpensive way to go in my opinion.

@abavuso EDIT: "I have any ideas or things I would like drawn in CAD" -- or 3D printed***

You are very talented with this stuff, I wish I knew how to do any of this. It may not be soon, but if I have any ideas or things I would like drawn in CAD would you be interested? I would of course be willing to negotiate payment =) I'm looking to design some decks for my quadcopter later on this year, and I would love to have some help in doing so!

I need to also add markings to the case to make identifying the pin numbers to make it easier to plug up with the case on. Also a cut a way pannle for those of us that didn't opt for the blue tooth pins to be installed. Once this design is complete, I'm going to order the version of the board with pins comming out od the side and rework the design for that stye of board.

@Jesterbaze Once I get home I'm planning to seeing what I can do to make it smaller and more compact to help reduce the cost. As of now the walls are 1mm thick which makes it super light. But I think the GPS dome could be a little smaller but that will take furter precission. Pluss once I'm 100% happy with the whole design and it's durability (simply a crash test) I'm going to look into injection molding to see if it can further reduce production costs.

Hey thank you so much! That is a real work of art! I may end up getting one of these in the summer (once the weather here is nicer so I can get outside and fly some). I really appreciate you and your wife doing all this. Man I hope I can get one of these haha!

@Jesterbaze I've uploaded photos from my wife. They aren't be best but she did what she could. I do need to tweak the GPS holder to allow for the cables to pass under the board. She says it wont snap down with the cable plugged in. So we are making some head way.

@Jesterbaze Not yet I'm in Afghanistan right now, I was home on leave when I got to test out the fit of the first version. The adjustments and the prints didn't show up before I had to go back. My wife says the prints arived and are on my work bench. I'll see if she can put them together for me, snap a few photos and e-mail them so that I can update the page images.

@abavuso Looks nice! Do you have any photos o this fully assembled (top and bottom)?

On v1.2 the opening for the pins were slightly off and the latch to hold the lid on was slightly off. Both have been adjusted for v1.3. I've added a thin wall to go down around the pins to protect from dust and still allow the case to breath. Stay tuned for a photo of the next one printed with the modification.
