Probably not but I will check. I was thinking of something akin to a cradle like what you can put a mobile phone in for the car. Open faced so access to the on/off button and volume controls is easy.

appreciate the request, but to have a nested fit I would need the design space. We don't have access to that at this time.

Default panel hole cover - snap in

the result was not too bad for the first print overnight. the front surface could be smoother. the camera picks up every detail. I like setting records so I'll have Amanda ship it to you today. you install and fly in quick fashion. that would be "from thought to design, shipped, delivered and flying part in a couple of days".

Steve, if you made the locking tabs end flush with the front surface, you could print the whole thing face down with no supports. Front surface would be as smooth as your bed, and text could still be included. You'd need to use a fingernail to unlock the locks, but this probably isn't something that will be removed and installed frequently anyway...

Thumbs up

Steve the mailman brought the cover today. Fits like a glove thank you very much! It's a record indeed. In less then two days from the design to manufacturing to flight testing.











Those bug covers came handy too.

Amanda is printing this morning. It's nice to have a kid working. She mows the grass too with a push mower that not self propelled. She has worked grass mowing time down from 1.5 hr to 1.0 hr.
